Potential baby shower

So, people have been asking me (and nightskyre) if there's going to be a baby shower. Short answer: we don't know.
Longer answer: there's been a lack of people with the availability & resources to plan a shower. Our friends our busy with their own lives, which is as it should be. However, since there seems to be interest in going TO a shower, we drew up some very preliminary plans, and I figured I would ask the mighty Intarwebs for advice.

EDIT: Poll is now closed. If there is a shower, it will be early in September, instead. Thank you all for your feedback!
