I went to the couples shower for my friend J on Saturday and had a nice time. It was basically like an adult party, lots of alcohol and yummy party food and a big stack of gifts wrapped in cute baby paper (okay that was the not so normal part of the party). I just avoided that area of the house so I could continue to pretend like this was just a party. We stayed about 2 hours and when it came time for the gifts to be opened I chicken out and went home. I felt bad that I just couldn't stay, but I felt like leaving was in my best interest. My friend J looked really beautiful with her big twins belly and her pregnancy glow. She has had a really rough pregnancy so it was nice to see her acting like her normal social self. She hugged me when I left and told me how much it meant for me to be there and I was happy to have been able to share the evening with her.
