Milk and Cookies Shower

Last weekend, my dear friend and co-party planner Millie Hahn threw me a milk and cookies baby shower. Cookies are basically my favorite food on the planet. Plus, Amos is not only the name we've chosen but "famous" for cookies as well (see the party favors!). Millie had quite a spread with five different types of cookies, brownie bites, AND cupcakes. She also served milk in adorable glass bottles with straws, which I swear made it taste better somehow. A wonderful time was had by all and I can't thank her enough for the amazing party!

Just wanted to say Hello!!!! and miss you guys and congratulations on the new little squirt and it's been too long and I feel in no way it compromises my masculinity to say that's the finest and most delicious baby shower I've ever been privy to, second hand of course.

I hope this finds your household well. Hello to your boys. Your new blog is lovingly arranged. When I'm not at BronxZoosCobra twitter account, I'm sure I'll find myself here.

All my love,

Shannon, That was a serious score! Millie and I have been hunting bottles like that forever because we seem them featured in showers and kid parties we love ALL THE TIME. They are actually from Aldi - their version of the Starbucks bottled frappucino. They were .99 cents apiece, which is pretty much as cheap as you're going to find glass bottles. We just had to drink a bunch of mochas. ;)
