I had posted that pic of a friend's baby with his one year old birthday sign in burlap. I didn't think it got much worse but I was wrong. Visited my friend over the weekend and her 10 month old. She says that she's starting to plan his first birthday party and the theme is "bows & boots". She says everyone MUST wear either a bowtie or cowboy boots, and her son will be wearing both. I spit out in my least excited voice "Well, then I guess me & DH aren't coming because we don't wear either of those". She gave me a lecture about how I can get cowboy boots for $20 at Walmart. I just don't know what goes through people's minds that they think I want to spend $20 on anything so ridiculous that I'm never going to use again. I would much rather wear something I'm comfortable in and give your son the $20 towards his savings account.
