Talk about being spoiled! My sister, T'liese, and Sister-In-Law, Megan, hosted a Bridal Shower for me this past weekend at Megan's parent's house. My younger brother (Megan's husband), Jeff, had helped decorate the front room for the party, though the house is gorgeous as it is and certainly doesn't need any dressing up! The entire day was so much fun! Megan made an incredible lime chicken vegetable soup, and T'liese made tea sandwiches made with sliced cucumbers and fresh basil leaves. We also had a lovely veggie tray with dip, and a yummy juice to wash it all down. Dessert was caramel apples with M&Ms and almond slices! It was a very delicious meal (and healthy!).
After everyone showed up, we played games and chit-chatted like women do best. I rather enjoyed just being able to talk about my man and what we have planned for our future together. Then we were able to open presents and munch on caramel apples before everyone started to trickle out.
Stephanie, Laurie, T'liese, Megan, and Cassie stuck around for a wedding planning meeting, and they are life-savers! I had food and decorations for the wedding planned, but I wasn't happy with it. I solicited help and received more than I could have imagined. We planned for three hours and figured out what needed to be done to make our upcoming wedding day absolutely perfect! I am so blessed to have such great friends and family, and I am very much looking forward to their hard work coming to fruition in 11 days (nope, I am not counting). Ladies, thank you. You are wonderful to help and take all the worry off my shoulders so I can simply enjoy the day!
Bridal Shower guests included T'liese, Megan, Stephanie, Laurie, Cassie, Jen, Barbara, and Sister Cashen. Several others offered wonderful presents even though they were unable to BE present. I am so blessed. THANK YOU!
Those who weren't able to attend will be saddened to know my rare but entertaining Irish Jig made an appearance during the Bridal Shower. That just may be a small insightful window into how great the day was!
