      ( 9:19 AM ) teahouse

As a follow-up to Wednesday's post, yes we did think of buying and shipping, but the whole point of the bridal shower is to bring the present so the bride can open it in front of us all, and we can all oooooh and aaahhhh and clap.

And this is just the bridal shower gift, so we split it several ways and each kicked in about $35. And the plane tickets to get there, and hotel.

On top of that, we're all still buying gifts for the wedding itself - I'll be spending about $150 since she's a good friend, and the gift will be from both me and my date (the Boy and I have an agreement that whoever's friend it is has to buy the gift). And we're flying there and staying in a hotel there as well.

This reminds me of that episode of Sex and the City, where she realizes that she's spent thousands of dollars celebrating her friend's choices - to get married, have a bridal shower, have children.

Of course, I'm happy to do it, because I love my friends.

But where's my loot?

Also, as anyone who has just moved to a new apartment will tell you, moving makes you realize how much CRAP you have, and that you really don't need anything new.
