Baby Showers for Morgan

So it's probably time I should post about the baby showers we put together for Morgan at work and with our med school friends! I am not the best party planner, especially when it comes to decorations, but sometimes I have good ideas.

The OSU Foundation baby shower was such a success! Lucky for me no one knew the memory candy game that Maura put together for Twinner's baby shower years ago. They thought I was so clever for matching the candy bars to baby words like epidural=LifeSavers. I love when I can pretend to be brilliant! We also played a game matching celebrities with their baby's name. I was uber stunned when two of our lovely coworkers scored 100%. The celebrity baby I could match before researching the game was Suri!

For Morgan's med-friend shower I was lucky to have the help of our friend Amanda and Morgan's husband Chase. Amanda took care of the food, Chase white gloved their home to make way for the party and baby, we doubled up on some decorations from work, and my only responsibility was games! We played Name That Tune with only songs with "Baby" in the title and a Balderdash kind of game with baby pictures. Morgan was already having contractions by the time we hosted the med-friend party! We're just so glad that little Colt arrived yesterday, and not before the showers!

Look Who Got A Haircut

Scott decided (...maybe he was given an ultimatum) that he should probably keep his hair well groomed since boards and rotations are coming up (boards are in June and rotations begin after that).

He's had several people say they don't recognize him. Some have mistaken him for a teenager. Med students jokingly asked if he was new at COMP NW.

I think his hair looked really good today, but most of the time I miss my Justin Bieber.

Cranberry Juice

This is Scott wearing his "finest." He insisted, when we had friends over for dinner the other night, that he go HAD to search through all our storage to find the one small box of plastic wine glasses we received as a wedding present. When he found them, he also insisted that we fill these wine glasses with cranberry juice. He may have googled how much wine normally goes in a wine glass and drip by drip carefully filled the glasses to the correct proportion. This is my husband.

Hasbro House Party

Am I incredibly behind on my blog posts? Yes.

On New Years Eve I had the honor of throwing a Hasbro Game Night House Party for my in-laws. It was really a no-brainer to apply for the party, since the Chandlers are such gamers (card gamers, at least)! House Party and Hasbro totally hooked us up with games and coupons.

Here is a little preview of a game of Scrabble Catchphrase that night:

Scott was spinning everyone a very twisted web as he circled around the answer. The group told me later that they had stopped paying attention to the timer and just played for fun. So glad the fam could get together for New Years Eve and a rousing night of games!
