I spent the afternoon in Atchison, KS for another shower event for Molly. Because of Blogher this week, and certain other expenses that popped up, I wanted to come up with a meaningful, yet cheap shower gift. I purchased a $13 baking pan from Target and wrote out the recipe for the Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas on a note card. On the other side I created a coupon good for a night where I come over with a bottle of wine and make the enchiladas for her and her fiance in the pan. I figured we’d get to spend some quality time together and I could show her how to make them. It’s the gift that gives twice.
She seemed excited to set a date for enchilada night. I can’t wait.
We also got to write down our favorite Molly memories and they were shared with all so that Molly could guess who shared each memory. Mine was: back when we worked together, our cubes shared a wall. Sometimes I would send Molly an e-mail that would make her laugh and I could hear it from my cube. Well then I’d get the giggles and our giggles would escalate until one of us excused ourselves to the restroom to control the giggles.
I loved hearing her family and friends share memories about her. Many laughs were had by all.At one point, Molly had to use my cookie napkin to wipe the tears off her face from laughing so hard. Now that’s a sign of a great shower.
Last night I found a few awesome wedding blogs I wanted to share with you. These are two very creative ladies who planned quirky budget-friendly weddings of their own.
