Cowboy Caviar Stuffed Avocados

We had the loveliest virtual shower this weekend!

I was incredibly anxious about it – surprise, surprise.

As you all know, I never mind being the center of attention…except when it’s for real life things.

Allow me to explain. I don’t mind getting on stage at a karaoke bar and belting out Adele to a room full of strangers – friends taking embarrassing photos, the whole nine. I DO, however, mind things like birthday parties and showers where I am the object of everyone’s focus for no other reason than existing. Add in having to open presents in front of people?! I can’t imagine a more pure form of torture. THEN throw in doing it virtually?! You would think that might make it better, but it adds another layer of complex emotions I can’t handle. So basically I spent the morning of this baby shower crying. I’d like to blame hormones, but it’s just me.

We did get some DOPE gifts tho, I just wish Garrett was forced to open and react on camera instead.
