First Baby Shower

Yesterday was our first baby shower and it was amazing!! I had such a good time and I am so thankful for my sister and 2 friends who took the time, energy and money to put together a wonderful shower. I am also so thankful for all the friends and family who took the time out of their day to come celebrate baby Eli and gift him with some awesome stuff. It was truly humbling. Now Eli's room is full of gifts that need to be washed and put up. So exciting!

I don't want to leave anything out so I have a ton of pictures to share:

  22. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
