How is it November already??! Where did the year go? My fall has been PACKED with work and baby showers of all things! I suppose it's the natural progression of life- go to college and make a ton of friends; get out of college and go to a ton of friends' weddings; tons of married friends settle down after a few years and then baby makes three...or four or five in some cases.

Thankfully, baby showers have come a long, long way. They seem to be less about storks and "guess the bump's size" games and more about true quality time with your favorite people who are now really busy raising kids or working their butts off. (I fall into the latter category.) Not being married or having a kid on the way, a baby shower has the potential to make someone like me absolutely insane. (Remember that episode where Carrie's shoes get taken from the baby shower and she has to register at Manolo Blahnik to get a judgey Tatum O'Neal to pay her back??)
But I happen to love these sweet events. Call me crazy or overly-weddinged but why wouldn't we jump at the chance for two hours of girl time in the middle of a Saturday? Check out pics from the sophisticated showers I've been to recently and you might see what I mean. It's been a great reason to get together with the girls, don a fancy dress in the daytime and maybe do a little sunshine boozing. And, of course, we love celebrating life's big changes and the upcoming arrival of a sweet new member of our friends' families!

Can you guess what I'm doing this weekend? It's off to another baby shower! And I'm looking forward to it. Now if I could just keep track of all these due dates...
