It's Monday! Of Checklists and a Tolkien Party

As my due date approaches I've been making checklists and trying to actually complete them. I did get the Christmas tree down finally last week. I've been buying more books at used book sales and Goodwill so adding to my workload. I'm just clever that way. I have a pretty good stash of freezer meals already though!
We had our first baby shower recently, that some dear friends put on for us and specifically made Tolkien themed. It was AMAZING!!! We had hobbit themed snacks and decorations. There was even a "No admittance except on party business" sign on their door! It was a Tolkien nerd's dream! And while not everyone gave us Tolkien themed gifts several did and we came away with some Tolkien art, a little hobbit dress and a quilted wall hanging of Bag End! Here are a few pictures of the marvelous event!

I'm afraid no other baby shower will ever match up! It was a dream come true!

Anyways on to reading! I've finished up a couple books recently and I'm working on some more. I'm feeling behind already but I'm trying not to let it stress me out and just enjoy the reading I do get done.

  1. Oh my goodness! I love that Hobbit dress!! That is too adorable.

  2. Those Hobbit themed items look great! So jealous of the festivities. :)

  3. That . . . that is just SO adorable. The Hobbit dress. I might have to steal that idea and do an elven baby dress (depends on whether we are getting a niece or a "nevvy" as Jo March says it). I love all of this, how special.

  4. Love the Tolkien themed gifts, cake, and hobbit dress! Thanks for sharing with us!

  5. Ack, it sounds like such an awesome baby shower!! :D
