Bill's Expensive Baby Shower

On Sunday I went to the flea market with Anna, which was really to distract me away from Bill's big surprise baby shower for me. He was so proud of himself. It was at the club house in our subdivision and there were about 20 people there (fellow deputies and a few friends and neighbors). Of course, Bill went all out on food and drinks. The food he had catered from Qdoba's and he bought several cases of beer and about 8 2-liters of soda. We had a ton of food left over. This "party" turned out to be quite expensive. I later found out that he spent probably close to $600! We did receive a few gifts, but Bill said he didn't stress it. Yeah, I was NOT happy! Do you know how many diapers I could have bought with $6oo? He complains about me getting a $60 ultrasound and then pulls this?! Oh, Pooh Bear, I did it for you... I would have been happy with people at the house and have them bring a dish to pass. He better have nothing to complain about when I pressure him again to consider cord blood banking!

VERY sweet that he surprised you w/ a shower, but I would've been upset w/ the price tag as well. Sometimes they just go a bit overboard when they decide to do something nice! Hope all is going well. He'll be here before you know it!

I have scolded him several times since then. He doesn't see anything wrong with it. I just shake my head. He will then complain that the credit card bill is high - well duh, he charged the food to it!!!
