It’s all about Janice;)

Saturday, April 23, 2008

After all the preparation, the day of Janice’s Shower finally arrived. Wendy, Debra, Debra’s husband Nate, Jordana, and I began setting up for the party. As I am not gifted in the kitchen, I left food prep to Wendy, Debra, and Jordana. My contribution to the food was a mixed berry salad that Rob made. I arranged the menagerie of flowers that I had purchased the day before at the Flower Mart.

Here is the day as told in pictures.

Janice – the guest of honor with the first of many cocktails.

Janice & Jordana

Our shower hostesses Wendy and Debra decided to spare us the agony of too many boring shower games. No toilet paper dresses here! Thank God! Instead, we were split up into two teams and played “Janice Jeopardy”. The questions were divided up into categories based on different periods of Janice’s life. This allowed everyone to participate.

Wendy says, “Let the Games Begin!”

To keep things interesting, Janice had to play “Do you Really Know J.D.?”. Among all the categories, there were 4 blank categories. If she selected a blank one, she had to wear a gag article of clothing. This game was also fun because it gave us all some additional insight into J.D. and his life.

Debra was in charge of Janice’s trivia questions about J.D.

Jordana wants to know how anyone is supposed to know the answers to some of these questions.

When the games were done, Janice looked like this

At the end of our game, we looked like this

Apparently, Joe like the lip gloss AND the bow that came with the box

After the game, there was dessert.

The Granny Panties made the rounds.

Joe decided to try them on.

… as did Michelle

Then Janice opened her gifts.

Janice got some sexy pieces in addition to her game prizes

She also received gifts from her registry

and some other things that no one else could appreciate;)

At the end of the night, we were all pooped. Janice was tipsy and happy. And, I’ll take that as a sign that it was a good party.
