## NOTE: this blog is intended for folks invited to our baby shower in February...we thought using my blog would be the easiest way to let folks know what we'd use ##

Hey everyone,

Thanks so much for wanting to come to our baby shower!
We are really excited to celebrate with you the coming of this little boy.
Since there are not that many things that we need we opted out of registering somewhere and thought this would be easier.

As the invite says....please do not feel obligated to bring a gift.....but if you'd like to get us something...below is a list of "stuff" we'd use.
If you click on the item it will take you to a link of the exact item we'd like.

it may get confusing since there isn't a place to write what you got. so, maybe if its the magazine subscription don't officially order it until after the shower. or make sure to keep your receipt for an item... OR maybe you could write in the comment section what you got and we promise not to check it.......

if you have any questions please email me.
