Lingerie shower pics







Well, the shower started with a little drama but it all turned out nicely at the end. I arrived at the address that was given to me on the invitation and knocked on the door. No answer. I rang the bell. No answer. I peeked in the window next to the door. I could see the arrangement of chairs in the living room that said, "people coming over" to me. Now, I am usually the first one to get places but it was 10 minutes till, not that early. I called Karen and asked if I was in the right place and told her no one was answering. "Weird," she says. "I'll call you back. I'm almost there, myself." It turns out that one of the hostesses, Abby had been involved in a hit and run car accident on the way over and called Amanda at whose house the party was being held and she rushed over to help. I had actually passed the accident on my way over and seen two young women peering under an SUV with its right front tire completely bent over to the ground. Karen and I sat on the front porch and waited because by the time she got hold of them, the police had arrived. The police officer helped load everything into Amanda's car and offered to drive Abby to the shower after the tow truck had come and they had cleared the accident from the street. Of course, I had to take a picture of the police car when it arrived. LOL

I looked everywhere for a pair of footed pajamas with no luck so I bought a pretty black and white nightgown. The invitations were made using zebra stripe and purple paper which is why Alison bought her sister this lovely hat. I think it is cute. I already have ideas of how to scrap these. The cake was made by Abby, who is also doing Karen's wedding cake.

What an eventful shower! I am so impressed with the public servant/ police officer offering to help get people and stuff to the shower.
