The second to last weekend in July, we took Reese on our first road trip to Nashville. This trip should be two hours each way. On the way to Nashville, Reese slept most of the trip, and was just starting to get fussy when we made it to Kira and Andrew’s House. We had no idea what to expect with Reese. We didn’t know if she would decide to not sleep even though we have had her in the pack n play in our room when we had lots of guests, but she did really well.
I just realized that I hadn’t posted about my sister Tanya’s last baby shower!!!! My sister and her husband adopted my nephew Jonas, and this was their fourth child. Normally we don’t do baby showers unless it is the first child,but they only had a few days to get ready for him since the process went faster than expected. So, we did a diaper, formula, and wipes shower for them to help get them started.
I was lucky enough to be picked for another House Party this time for Smirnoff. This is where the company gets advertisement because you use their products, and normally give you their product or coupons to buy them for when you host your party. I have done two other House Parties before that you can read about hereÂ House Party #1 & House Party #2. I invited a ton of people but it was last minute and it was on a holiday weekend so we ended up only having two people come but it ended up being the perfect amount.
I was lucky enough to be chosen by benefit cosmetics! A house party is where they send you their products for free, you invite your friends over and show them their products. There are samples that they get to take home and they are able to try out the products without feeling pressured to buy anything.
I was finally able to help host another shower on March 3rd for Elana who is another girl in my young married’s group. There are SO many couples pregnant right now, but this was one of the few showers I finally asked early enough about to be able to help. Anyway, all of us girls did different parts of the shower, and I think it turned out very nice. This was the weekend right before Grant left for Chicago for training for work, so this weekend was VERY busy. Right after the shower, I had Ally’s birthday party to go to. Simon and Sarah were also visiting that weekend, and so Sarah came with me to the shower while Grant and Simon had guy time.
