Saturday was the day -- my FIRST bridal shower.
I'm just gonna get real personal and tell you that I could not stop sweating on the car ride there. I bought this cute new navy lace top on sale and not even kidding. My pits were a mess and I started getting that feeling I got back in school when I had to present about a topic I wasn't prepared for. I know, I'm crazy. This day was going to be FUN! & I knew that... I just don't do well with everyone paying attention to me.
We pulled up to the place though and OH MY WORD... all that weird anxiety went away and everyone was there ready to celebrate this new adventure in my life! It was such a great feeling.
This shower was thrown by my MOH Lyndsie. Um. Let me tell you something... girl just gets me. Mason jars? Check. Cupcakes? Check. Yellow everywhere?! CHECK CHECK CHECK.
The decor was just too cute, as you can see. One of my other friends (and bridesmaid) Marie took care of all the food...and I'm not talking take-out.
We're talking like, she home-made ALL of it right there. Chicken salad croissants, grilled on the spot bruschetta, quiche, meatballs, stuffed mushrooms, and a couple delicious cheese balls.
After we all got stuffed silly, we played a few hilarious games.
A silly round of he said/she said.
& then I had to leave the room & each table
inappropriately decorated a pair of briefs.

THEN... everyone gathered around to watch me open all the presents. I was ecstatic at this point, Caleb and I are so blessed.

My grandma (basically a second momma to me) surprised me with THIS bad boy. O-M-G. In love. Caleb and I absolutely cannot wait to find the perfect spot for this in our place.

I've been so blessed by this lady. My great grandma Agnes, so happy she gets to see her only granddaughter get hitched.
I know this gorgeous gal needs NO introduction, but this is Erin, my super soulmate. I don't know WHAT I'd do without her. She is such a constant "happy" in my life, and I hope she always knows how thankful I am for our friendship. Just saying, the two of us are kind of awesome when we're together, but you add our men to that mix & you've got yourself the most ridiculous bunch of craziness you'll ever see. In the best way possible. Moral of the story; I love her to the planets and back 16 times.
That is Marie, yes...the amazing chef. I legit asked her not to buy me ANY wedding presents but to just teach me how to cook.
You think I'm kidding? Nope.
& that is my MOH, Lynds. She did SUCH a great job planning my shower, it was exactly what I'd always thought of in my head. I mean, really. She was in Cali for her last semester of college and she came to OHIO for spring break!? Uhhh... that is true love. We've been friends for over a decade now, and I am so unbelievably thankful for her.
So, that was my exciting Saturday :)
After everything was loaded in the car, I met Caleb at our apartment and just the two of us went through everything and put it all away in cabinets. It was probably the most romantic thing we've ever done. I about cried of excitement!
Thanks for sticking around for THAT crazy long post!
I'll be back to finish up the rest of my weekend, tomorrow.
