My shower was 1 week ago and I’m still so happy from it. You gals all know how nervous I was about the shower and let me tell you…I had nothing to worry about. Y’all knew I had nothing to worry about, but hey, I’m a typical type A bride. I had to find out for myself! 😉
In any case, the morning of the shower started out crazy. I showered and straightened my hair in record time (it usually takes me an hour but this time it took about 35 mins!) and attempted to put on my Spanx and makeup before my MOH Sarah came to the house. My mom was even really sweet and made some breakfast which I was really thankful for. By the time I got done eating and getting ready, Sarah got to the house and I was frantic. I started thrusting stuff at her left and right (“Can you hold my lipstick and gloss? I’m not taking a purse.” “Hey can you get that frame downstairs, trim the picture to size, and put it in the frame?” “Oh and can you grab the bag with the laptop and guestbook?”…). Poor Sarah! She really did a great job for me though and got me to calm down and just breathe so we wouldn’t forget anything to take to the shower. I think we’ll definitely be more prepared for the next shower and not be so frantic.
Anyway, we all drove and picked up my Aunt and headed to Gloria’s house (Gloria is my cousin’s mother in law). Gloria and her daughter Clarissa (my cousin Mark’s wife) wanted to throw me this shower and I was so excited to get to the house. Once we arrived, I was overwhelmed with the cute decorations:
There were more decorations, but I don’t have any pictures of them (though these are only one set. I have 2 other people that furiously took pictures. I need to get those). I loved it though!
This picture is probably my most favorite of the day. Me and my Aunt Dodie. She’s so crazy (in a good way)!
After taking a billion pictures (which, I have to admit, it was really weird being the center of attention), we finally sat down to play some shower games. Let me tell you, you don’t wanna miss the next post with the games 😉
