Halloween Baby Shower & Weekend Fun

Hope everyone enjoyed Halloween weekend! 

I spent Halloween night at home giving out candy to the neighborhood kids with some Vietnamese food takeout for dinner and watched the movie Sex Tape after all the candy was gone.

On Saturday, we went to a friend's Halloween-themed baby shower hosted by Kate. The shower was co-ed so the guys got to experience all that is a baby shower. Kate had tons of great finger food and the cutest pumpkin cake. I brought mini pot pies from Trader Joe's which are a quick and easy appetizer to prep for large groups of people. 

After the shower, a group of us headed to get some drinks and check out a popular German restaurant that everyone raves about. It was such a fun night with great friends, food and super-sized German beers.

Celebrating Things To Come

As I mentioned on Friday, I've been needing a "my Netflix and my snacks" kind of weekend but this weekend had different plans for me. Friday night was pretty chill though, thankfully!

After going to dinner and drinks with my team on Thursday, we all arrived to work feeling rough on Friday. Very professional, I know, but sometimes we have to entertain clients and new hires that come into town and if they want to go out drinking then that's what we have do. We sent our new hire with a nice hangover on her flight back to the Netherlands on Friday.

K and I were supposed to go to a winery on Friday night that had live music and food trucks but I could barely keep my eyes open when I got home from work. We settled for a quiet dinner at Bonefish Grill and headed home after that. I've said this before but I'm obsessed with the bang bang shrimp at Bonefish. It's a must have when we go there! 

On Saturday we headed to K's hometown 2 hours away for a friend's co-ed baby shower. Baby Harper will be here next month and she got some wonderful gifts from their family and friends. 

After the shower we went out with some friends to catch up at the guys' favorite watering hole and then spent the night at my in-laws house.

On Sunday we headed back into town for one of my best friend's gender reveal party to find out whether their baby is a boy or a girl. Hence, the name of this post as we celebrated two babies coming soon.

The hosts asked everyone to wear either pink or blue depending what you thought the baby is going to be. I thought it was going to be a girl so I showed up in pink and K went in blue. They had a cute monkey pinata which the grandma-to-be was given the stick to hit and reveal the surprise. After many attempts out came a flood of blue candy. It was a really cute way to reveal the gender. 

As you can see based on the two teams below, the majority had a feeling it was going to be a boy. I was on the losing team but so excited for the soon-to-be parents and I'm looking forward to planning her baby shower.

How was your weekend?
