shower venue, check.
your eyes do NOT deceive you. this is, indeed, my second post in one day. i figure, it'll make up for not posting at all yesterday. i was so distracted with getting ready for crissy that i simply didn't get into it. i didn't have much to say anyway.
i went to altadena town & country club to check out the room they had available for the shower MIL's throwing for me. i'd seen it once before, but that was two years ago, and it wasn't one of the rooms we considered anyway, so i wanted to see what it looked like.

i'd do a fun baby shower twirl, but i'd get dizzy and i don't want to fall on my ass.
my cousin's daughter is almost exactly the same age as the bean - she's literally a week older. both kids turned 16 this year, and ...
