It’s getting real….baby Chloe Mila Kubalski is coming soon! I’m about to be an Aunt and will most likely need to change my first diaper ever. But first, the parents-to-be had a baby shower last weekend. The big event was hosted by Lena’s friends and her mom at Zia’s, a yummy Italian spot in Edison Park (they also have a second location in the city on Ashland & Grace with a great Bloody Mary special on Sunday mornings).
I loved that it was a co-ed baby shower. It feels more like a party, and includes more of your close friends to celebrate the baby coming. Plus, it minimizes games, which I abhor. Lucky for me, there were only a few low-key activities at the shower, and I won one! So I guess I can’t complain. One of the games had to do with how much random crap you had in your purse, and being the hoarder I am, of course I won.
All in all, it was a beautiful celebration of my soon-to-be-here niece!
I hung out with my mom and aunts, who are quite the trio.
For my gift, in addition to selecting a few things off the registry, I had to hook up my brother and Lena with some Mamba candies. I got one for my brother on Easter and they were such a hot commodity, that this time around they each got their own. I also got a few books for Chloe, one of which had to do with a pea, which is ironic because I hate peas. My mom got them The Little Prince, a book I absolutely love.
Can’t wait to meet Chloe Mila!
