Planning your own shower

Does anyone else think its weird. I had a friend who planned, booked and paid for all of her own baby showers. I believe she has 2 or 3 kids and she threw herself a shower for them all. To me its just a little weird. Like you are spending all that money to basically tell people they need to buy you stuff. Why not spend that money on the baby itself. She rented a hall and stuff. Its not cheap. It would be different if someone else was throwing it for her. It would just make more sense then. Maybe its just me.

    I had to plan my own shower! I would have loved to have someone throw it for me.

    I feel like every mom deserves someone to throw her at least one :(

    I agree! Sometimes I wish that I would've met moms on here sooner in life!

      I didn't really know anyone where we were at when I had my son so I never had a baby shower because I would have had to plan my own and then find people to invite. Just seemed odd to me.

        I wonder if it actually pays off! I wonder if she gets more out of the showers than she puts in throwing them? She may, especially if it's not her first kid. She could be reusing somethings, re-upping other people to buy her other things. But it does strike me as a little strange to do for one's self. My mom ingrained that into me, though.
