An Amazing Day! MIMM

I am so excited to be sharing what made my weekend marvelous this week! Thanks Katie for hosting!

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of going to my FIRST bridal shower! For some reason, it kind of appeared out of no where! I knew it was coming, but it didn’t really hit me, and I wasn’t really excited until Thursday night. After that, I felt like a little kid on Christmas! I could not wait to see everyone!

I had friends come in from about 3.5 hours away, which was the nicest gesture I could’ve asked for! I became friends with them at college, and don’t see them too often because of the distance. I was blessed they drove in for my shower.

My shower was “brunch style” so we had scrambled eggs, French Toast, bacon, Fried Chicken, Roasted Red Potatoes and Ham. There were also muffins and pastries. It was all delicious! My dad came, too, to be the “photographer”.” However, I forgot to snap pictures of the food, and forgot to tell him to!

Being the center of attention was a bit much, and I was nervous when I first started opening gifts, but then I fell into a groove and just went with it! I loved everything I received, and didn’t even receive duplicates! What made my shower even more special was that my bridesmaids took care of everything! You all know me, and know that I have been stressed, and become stressed with anything. SO! The fact that they did it all and left me completely out of it made it even better. I am lucky to have them all apart of my day!

Alright, I’m done talking! Here are some pictures from my day!

  10. You looked so pretty! I am sure it was a wonderful time to spend with all your friends from college. Some of my friends have already moved away with real jobs & it’s always nice when they come home.

  11. First, you looked so beautiful and I love the dress.
    Second, I completely agree with the whole eyes on me thing… I felt so uncomfortable in those situations during our wedding events too. I wish I could say it’ll get easier as you approach the wedding but… 😉
    Third, I felt the same way about all of my friends who traveled…. such a huge gift right there!

    <3 Have a great Monday!

      Aww thank you! At least I know not to expect it to get easier 🙂 Haha Tip from the pro 😉

      Honestly, I would have been happy just seeing their face and getting no gift! It was huge for each of them to drive!

  12. I couldn’t help but giggle when you said you said you felt uncomfortable being the center of attention – totally feeling you on that one. But you looked absolutely gorgeous (love that dress!!), and you definitely deserved to have all eyes on you 🙂 Glad to hear that you had such an awesome shower, girl!

      Thank you! Before all this started, I never would’ve thought I’d have a hard time. I do teach, so eyes are constantly on me (well, if they’re listening!) But around family and friends, it felt so weird!! HAha

  13. Oooh how fun! I love the dress you picked, and I agree – you deserved to have everyone’s eyes on you. Glad to hear it went so well, looks like a fun time!!

  14. It looks like you had so much fun! And I love that you had friends travels so far for your shower! True friends are so special, and of course family is special!

    That is also impressive that you didn’t receive any duplicates! Don’t worry, the next 2 and a half months will fly by!
