baby girl shower hostess gift

The ladies who hosted our baby shower were so sweet and over the top generous in their "going all out" for me.  It was a lot of fun.

So, of course, being from the south (I hear it's not done here so much) I wanted to have some nice hostess gifts.

A quick search on pinterest got the wheels turning and led to this.

Some specialty cinnamons and spice blends from my favorite spice shop downtown and some "sugar" in the form of candies in girly colors.

Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice!

This morning I was grumpy.  Tired.  Disheartened.  

Adrian suggested getting out of the house would probably do David and I both good but for whatever reason I was scared to leave the house.

My sweet brother who is on spring break changed his plans with his boys so that they could come and meet us at a playground near our house and we got to sit and enjoy the gorgeous weather and talk while the boys had a blast playing for over two hours.  

I think I'm cured of my "scared to leave the house-itis" and now I want to go out for ice cream tonight.  :)  

I'm trying to pack in my dairy consumption because if this sweet girl is allergic to dairy like her brother is, it is going to be one long year of not eating it while nursing.

If you live or know the Springs, do you have a favorite ice cream place here?  You know what really sounds good?  One of those ice cream sandwiches made with real cookies!  Yum!

What NO hostess gifts! You must start a trend. Of course, a thank-you card is nice. But geez, those ladies spent a lot of time an money on your party. You did the right thing. Yes M'am.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she
can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken
and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I
had to share it with someone!

I tend not to leave a response, however I browsed through some comments
here "baby girl shower hostess gift". I actually
do have some questions for you if it's okay. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some of the responses appear as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at other online sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of all of your social community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
