I know it should go the E board but I trust your opinions here more.
So a close friend of mine is having a baby shower thrown for her by her step mom and dad. This Sunday night in the middle of labor day weekend out in the desert area 50 miles from me. Okay so I was a bit grumpy about that. Then add in that its a theme baby shower, "Hollywood Red Carpet" ok a little more annoyed. But hey I can deal, LBD heels and they have to deal with it. Then I get a text that her dad had sprained his ankle and they are looking for people to come and help set up. Ok FI and I can do this for her because they are dear friends.
So today I get another text that they now need me to bring food. Preferably cold finger foods. Veggie, dips, whatever. This is when I get really annoyed. If the baby shower was hosted by her parents shouldn't they be the ones that provide the food? If it had been stated as a potluck then I could have considered otherwise. Am I wrong in being annoyed, and just suck it up and go to the market and buy the food. If so do any of you ladies have suggestions for easy travel cold finger foods. Because where the baby shower is it is HOT.
