Our baby shower went pretty well. We had lots of good food and got to spend time with our family and friends!

We ended up doing pretty well in the gifts department as well. I got the breast pump I wanted, a pack n play, rock n play sleeper, swing, and video monitor. We also got some blankets, toys, a little bit of clothes, and other odds and ends.

I have to say, I was surprised at how few clothes we got! We also didn't get any diapers or bottles. But that's okay, because I am looking forward to doing some shopping on my own too!

Hubby's parents got us an awesome jogger, but I had to order a lighter travel system anyways because I can't friggen lift the jogger and the front wheel is sketchy. We might tape down the break on the front wheel and keep the jogger for Jason to use or we might ask for the receipt and return it. Not sure yet. It makes more sense to return it, but I feel bad.

Jason's grandma sent us a huge check (I literally almost choked when I saw it) so that's how I was able to order a lighter travel system. I also used it to get a few odds and ends (though we still need to buy stuff) and I splurged and got an ergo carrier. What can I say, I had to take advantage of Target's sale online!

Overall it was an amazing day with beautiful weather. I love our friends and family!

Fun items you got.. many of those are on my list too
Sounds like you got the bigger items so it will be lighter on your wallet. Nice to hear you had a wonderful shower

That's great that you got so many big items! I think it's much easier to get the smaller items than the bigger ones anyways.

So fun! I love baby showers Which jogger did you get? I am curious because we are planning on getting the Baby Trend jogger/travel system and it has mixed reviews, but when I tried it in the store it seemed to work fine for me.

I heard once from someone who worked at Babies R Us that they saw Baby Trend strollers returned the most... just FYI!

It was a Graco fast action click connect Jogger. It was really nice, but the front wheel gave us problems and it was too heavy for me. The other ones we tried in the store, the front wheel was fine. It's a really nice, well handling stroller, but we went with a lighter Graco travel system instead.
