Seriously, I feel unworthy! Have you ever seen this website? I've spent some time over there and am in utter amazement at how incredibly talented and creative these party people are! Having said that, we had a TON of fun eating at Clare's shower and I know she enjoyed it, so it was all worth it!
PS - the phrase "I'll be a monkey's uncle" was one I learned at Pioneer Girls Camp in the 2nd grade...still don't know what it means, but yes, I still use it. ; )
