Agree to disagree

So, here it goes. What has been going on in my life in bullet points.
  • I realized that I didn't post much last week.  I was so busy catching up on everything from when I was gone on vacation.
  • I have been addicted to Pinterest (find me at newlywedgiggles) yet again.  It goes in spurts for me.  But, I really have failed in making our apt cute and all that jazz... so I have been looking for everything and anything DIY for cheap to make our place feel awesome.
  • I am deathly afraid of trying out some of these Pinterest projects.  What if it doesn't work. Then the hubs is going to look at me and shake his head. I don't want that. Ugh. I wish I was real crafty.
  • The Giants won last night!  Woop Woop. Love that football is on.
  • I need ideas for space saving in an apt... anyone of you bloggers can help me out with that? Please!
  • I have so much laundry waiting for me at home today. Laundry will be the death of me. I hate dragging everything downstairs to the laundry room. Praying no one else in our apt building is doing laundry today so I can get it done.
  • Is getting real annoyed with my job. I wish managers did their job and put their foot down. Instead, everyone is complaining and barely putting effort into their job, meanwhile, us upstairs are working our butts off. Womp
How was that for a quick bullet list? Now, onto to something they were talking on Z100 radio show this morning. Gender Reveal parties.  I just recently to went one, and it was awesome. So much fun and the anticipation was killing all of us.  I enjoyed it.  Plus, I got to find out I am going to be an aunt to another little girl who will be here soon!!!  Any who, on the radio they were complaining about all these parties that people have, gender reveal being one of them.  They were saying that couples are just doing it to get gifts.  Now, I don't think this is so true as long as.... wait for it.... they have either a gender reveal party or baby shower.
If you have a gender reveal party, I don't think you should have baby shower because to me it is the same thing. OR, if you do have both, then I think on the Gender Reveal Party invite you shouldn't put down if you are registered somewhere because then you are implying that you wants gift as well.  Same goes for engagements parties.  I don't get the idea of the engagement party only when you put down where you are registered.  That's what a bridal shower is for. I don't think it's fair to ask people you love to spend money at an engagement party, bridal shower bachelorette/bachelor party and the wedding.  Now, if you have an engagement party where you say no gifts are required, just want to share the love and joyous occasion with friends and family, then I would be OK with that.
And get this... the zinger... a caller called in saying him and his girlfriend were invited to a party for a toddler who used the potty for the first time.  WHAT?!?!!?  Fuck that. That is RIDICULOUS.  He was expected to bring a gift too. So he said he brought toilet paper. HA!

What do you guys think?

A party for gong potty for the first time?!?! WTF?!?! NO!

I have heard of gender parties... I have not heard of first potty parties. That is ridiculous IMO!

As for space saving, what exactly are you looking for? Closet, pantry?? We have major space problems here and I've come up with a few solutions.
