it was cheaper than hosting

My mantra when thinking about this shower: it was cheaper than if we had hosted. Was it a $40 restaurant experience? Um, no. But they really are dear friends, so I decided I had to let go of the annoyance.

Even when the 'hostess' walked around and demanded, have you paid yet? Did I get cash from you?


They came over the morning of the 'shower' to spend some one on one time with us. The husband blatantly asked for hand me downs. In a moment of sentimental weakness, I gave them my Maya wrap, which I never got the hang of using and bought cheaply off craigs list. What can I say, I'm a sucker and a softie, at times.

She's having another shower in their new city. I hope it's less of a mercenary transaction.

It is very interesting for me to read this blog. Thanks the author for it. I like such themes and everything connected to them. I definitely want to read a bit more soon.

My jaw was wide open reading the last post. As dear friends as they are, they are acting a little crass. IMHO of course.

Wow. It's really amazing how little tact these people possess.

Good for you for taking the high road and letting them borrow something, though. (Even if you feel like a softie, it was a nice gesture).

Oh, dear. This is going downhill fast. :(
