I had mine on Sept. 25 and then my coworkers did one for me on Sept. 29th. There weren't really themes to either of them aside from blue for boy :) I got a TON of stuff and have pretty much been able to get everything. I was able to return things I didn't want for gift cards and was pretty much able to use all of my gift card money to get the rest of the stuff. Our families did the big ticket items (stroller, car seat, etc). I'm glad I did them so early so I had plenty of time to go through everything and get all set up :)

My shower is this sun at 2pm also. I am so excited to see all my family and friends. Our theme is monkeys of course because I am completely obsessed with them and hope this baby likes them. LOL

My first one is this Saturday and is hosted by my DH's side of the family. I have no idea who was invited or if there is any theme. Next Saturday some of the women I work with are taking me out to lunch, which should be a lot of fun. Then I have my "big" one with my friends and family Nov 12th.

ETA - I always struggle with what to bring as thank-you gifts for the hosts. Has anyone given things that have gone over particularly well? For instance, one of the hostesses for my shower this weekend is my DH's aunt who I've only met a couple times so picking a personalized gift for her is kind of hard. :smileyindifferent:

LOL! I don't know why this cracks me up. I can't imagine going baby shopping with my DH's best friend, let alone buying a breast pump. Too funny! Your DH has a very generous friend!! It sounds like you had a great shopping trip! :smileyhappy:
