10 reasons you should throw a friend a Baby Shower

1. You’ll finally dust off that 1/4 inch thick layer of dust on all your pictures, bookshelves, TV, etc.
2. You’ll find $5 in loose change hiding in your couches as you’re cleaning them out.
3. You will scrub your tub till it’s sparkly clean, just because you’re afraid a guest might peek into it for who knows what reason.
4. You’ll re-organize your medicine cabinet for the same reason. You just never know if someone is going to be curious…
5. The stovetop with all the baked on food, clean!
6. The makeup you haven’t touched in a week? On your face!
7. The jeans and t-shirt you’ve been wearing for the last 3 days? In the dirty laundry.
8. You got to go shopping for party supplies and any shopping is good shopping, right?
9. Dessert.
10. A night of chatter and laughter with friends
