You Can Leave Your Hat On

At 2 weeks old, my niece is enjoying her title of "Newest-Family-Member" to it's fullest. Her reign will be brief as her cousin is due to steal the crown on Feb 26.

I hosted a baby shower for my other SIL on the weekend.

While it may seem odd for a weathered infertile to host such a celebration in the face of her own barreness, it was incredibly easy & enjoyable. I always say, when hosting a baby shower for someone else make sure:

1: You love the person very much.
2: You provide cupcakes & alcohol on equal quantities.
3: You have a range of 80's Rock CD's to blast.
4: You have a wide variety of hats in your possesion.

You see, once the faint hearted guests nibble cakes, sip tea & take their leave, the hard core, party animal friends & family can empty vodka bottles, marvel at "Cock-Sucking-Cowgirls" in a CASK and play "Jessie's Girl" till the cows come home.

The hats are my party trick. Once copious amounts of liquor have been consumed. I gather every hat I own (cycle helmets, shower caps, sombrero's) and unleash them on my guests. The party will intensify once all drunks are hatted. It is well documented that you become a great dancer and a comedian with a hat on. ........At least in my company.

Damn girl, I want to come to one of your parties. Save the shower cap for me.

Blogger Krista said...

Wow, that actually sounds like a shower even a hard core infertile could enjoy!

Good for you Mony, rock on, helmets and all!

You know what Mary Poppins says, "copious amounts of liquor makes the medicine go down". ;-)

Your party recipe sounds good, I might have to try it.

WOW! Now that's what I call a party!

Ahhh, it's the hat that makes the difference, not the grog... now I know!

What a great experience! You must be a great entertainer Mony! I bet your dinner parties rock.

Can I come? I need liquor. Desperately. Copious amounts. Damn Jenny already booked the shower cap. Crap.

Being as I've just enjoyed my Valentine's Day by downing four glasses of champaigne, hats sound like the perfect end to my drunken fumble of a night. :) Thanks for the Valentine's comment. Hugs.

And, I better be invited to your next hat party...Or else...

Mony its wonderful you can pull together a nice little shin-dig for your SIL. The last Baby Shower I went to was 5 years ago and it was pretty horrible - and i have been turned off by them since.

I got really drunk on Cock Sucking Cowboy cocktails once at a hen's night (not mine), they are so lethal.

Blogger Spanglish said...

what a great idea!! I even have swim caps in many, many colors (to protect the bottled hair color from chlorine). I want to go to a Mony party.

Blogger Millie said...

Sounds like all you need to include is cupcakes with alcohol.

You are a most excellent SIL.

Blogger Krista said...

Oh, the post is even better with pictures! I want to party with you Mony!

Blogger Robin said...

Love, Love, Love the pictures!

Cheers to you for hosting a shower!

I'm going to use your hat idea at our next party! Fabulous!

Blogger Beagle said...

Can you throw me a shower? That looks like fun!

Blogger Lut C. said...

You weren't kidding, judging by those photo's!

Blogger Tiff said...

You are so awesome. Hats RULE!
