Amanda had been planning Michael’s nautical shower for months and put a lot of special, funny touches into it. She came up with nautical names for all of the foods and everything was well-thought out!
I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a Nautical alphabet and thought she put up flags from random countries. If you ever wonder how to spell “Michael” the nautical way, here you go:
Michael was spoiled rotten already. His great-grandma Pearl gave him this clothes horse that was built by his great-great grandfather. How precious is that? And of course, the poor fella is in for a lifetime of suffering during football season because he is being forced to be a Bills fan already.
I have to feature my college roomate, Nattie. She’s getting married this summer and I just love her. I need to thank her for driving in from Buffalo, and other folks drove in from Pennsylvania the morning of the shower- getting up with the sun. And the Skips flew in from Atlanta! Hard to believe so many people care about this little kiddo and he hasn’t even showed his face yet.
I also have the cutest cousins in the world. I mean, seriously. I don’t wish for Michael to grow up too quickly, but I so look forward to taking him camping with these kids when he gets older.
All of us girls went to high school together and now look at us with a plethora of babies and babies on the way!
I can’t thank everyone enough for celebrating with us. And Amanda, you did a wonderful job, even if you forced me to make the cupcakes, fruit salad and deli tray for my own shower.
