[slideshow id=29] I recently attended a lovely baby shower in honor of my friend who is expecting her first baby (a little girl!) in early May. Old and new friends along with several generations of both the mom- and dad-to-be’s families (who flew in from out of state!) celebrated the occasion with some lively games, a champagne brunch and plenty of “ooohs!” and “awwws” as each gift was revealed.
I guess I’m getting to that age where I’m actually becoming quite a seasoned veteran attendee of baby showers. Though, for as many baby shower games for which I’ve participated, I’ve yet to win! I do have a few favorites, however, that I’d love to share along with a few new ones which I was introduced to last week. If I’ve missed any of your favorites, please feel free to comment with yours!
We learn a lot from our moms in the breastfeeding trenches and during holidays and travel times we hear a lot about why moms like to have two Bébé au Lait covers in rotation–one stays in the baby bag and one stays in the house. That way they’re never without no matter where they visit or who comes to visit them. And if one is in the washer, then there’s still one on active duty. To say “thank you for a great year” we took that info and are running a very special promo through tomorrow only–BOGO. Enter code “MYSTERY” at checkout and when you buy one nursing cover, we will slip a second one (mystery pattern) in the box plus right now there’s FREE SHIPPING. That’s serious savings, and serious readiness for wherever your holiday takes you. Be Well and Happy Holidays!
With Ronnie and Claire leaving for holiday next week, we squeezed our end of the year company holiday party in last night. Even booking way back in August, we were only able to secure a Thursday night for the much anticipated event: bowling at 300 San Jose in the Back 9! If you’re not familiar with the entertainment venue (there are a few locations nationwide), they promote themselves — and the Back 9 especially –as an all-in-one “trendy club/hot new bistro/upscale sports bar” so there’s a little bit of something for everyone and their dates.
After grabbing appetizers and drinks we spread out four to a lane which allowed everyone to get in plenty of games in between bites of our catered “Smokehouse BBQ Buffet” and brownie dessert bites. Special thanks to Suzanne and the event staff in the Back 9 who did a stellar job communicating with me to pull the night together. And, of course, thank you to Ronnie and Claire for hosting the event! Check out photos below: [slideshow=25]
Our Bebe au Lait office was more enchanted than haunted this Halloween. We had Dorothy, two princesses, a cute little cop and a baby chunky monkey visit us for some in-office trick or treating. Since several of our office mommies are uber healthy, we treated the kid to Play-Doh and pint-size toys along with traditional Halloween candies. (And cupcakes for the “big kids!”).
Rachael introduced the Switch Witch to Claire and later that night, the Switch Witch paid their kids a visit, switching out their candy to leave a present in its place.
