Fess Up Friday~ Baby Shower Games

Tuesday night I received a text from a friend that resulted in the following conversation:


So this one goes out to my friend, Jen


Photobucket


I recently learned that if you would like to make a double batch of brownies, it's a good idea


 to make sure before you start that you have all the ingredients needed.


You CAN substitute melted butter and applesauce for the oil if you really must, 


but if you also accidentally DOUBLE all the ingredients except for the brownie mix


you are no longer making brownies.


You are making a really weird apple-flavored brown cake.

I love baby showers. 


Baby shower games, however, I'm not such a fan of.


Chugging apple juice in a bottle as fast as you can, 


identifying mysterious substances melted on a baby diaper,


tasting unlabeled jars of baby food and deciding whether the orange goo is sweet potatoes, carrots, or mango-banana surprise. 


So much fun, these baby shower games.


And until recently I thought I'd played them all.


However, at the last shower I went to I was blindfolded,


spun in a circle five times,


and instructed to pin a paper sperm on a gigantic uterus on the wall. 


It's going to be pretty hard to top that one on my list of traumatizing baby shower experiences.

My boys are finally home for summer and it's been freakin' freezin' around here, Mr. Bigglesworth. 


My garden almost froze to death two nights ago from frost in JUNE. 


I have nothing funny to add to that, I just thought you should know and feel sorry for me.

The following have all been pinned by me on Pinterest because they make me laugh, but not because I identify with them in the least. (if you're reading this via email, you may have to click over to the blog to see)

That last one is why I had to take a break from reading epic novels.... my boys just don't leave me alone long enough to have a good weep.

Also, if you have an extra five minutes on your hands and you want the warm fuzzies, click on this link and go watch 60+ friends and family basically doing a flash mob proposal. 


Happy Friday!

  5. Just the other day I tried doubling a recipe without doubling the flour. It took me forever to figure out what I had done wrong.
