Plannin’ And Messin’…

It is my goal in life to keep shit stirred.
And to have someone roll their eyes and say “Oh Sister!” or “Oh Lord!” or in Roy’s case, he just shakes his head and sighs.
But I always get a smile. That's what is important.
The Baby Shower is comin’ together nicely. I have let my sister be in charge of decoratin’ since I have not been blessed with a “martha stewart gene” and she has too many to count.
And I’m lettin’ her find the cake since she won’t let me bake one.
We have come to terms on a cute theme. The mother- to- be refers to the baby as bean so we are gonna use Jelly Belly Beans in different flavors and colors. We’re all pullin’ for lots of pink but for some reason this is the year for boys… what’s up with that??
The mom in-law and grandmother- to- be has reserved her church for the big day. Huge weight off my shoulders!!
I am in charge of invitations. Easy Peasy!!
But as I like to mess with people I have been droppin’ stupid ideas and hintin’ about stuff so that the lovely mother- to- be wonders just what the hell she’s gotten herself into. That way when she walks in and finds a beautiful little baby shower, she’s be tickled pink.
I hope.
Please be a baby girl!!

I love the theme! I bet you can find all kinds of great stuff on pinterest and etsy. I did my sister-in-law's shower in a Sweet Pea theme.

Ha, I imagine you have them all good and worried. Love it.

Sounds like it's going to be great!

Sorry I haven't been around. I'm finally getting myself back into things.

Love the Jelly Belly theme idea!! I'm sure it'll be an AWESOME shower and the mama-to-be will love it. It's good to keep her on her toes for the time being, though. ;)

I like the Jelly Belly theme. I'm afraid I'm a stir-the-shit kind of shower-thrower too. I tend to forgo all themes and all stupid games. I don't know why I have such a problem with them, they're usually fun. Anyway, have fun with the invites.
