Last weekend my best friend from high school threw me a shower. Quite a few people were able to make it. My mom, sister-in-law, nieces, aunt from Tulsa, and my two great aunts came. It was so sweet of my great aunts to come, especially since GaGa (their sister, my grandmother) is still in the hospital and not able to be there. She was spunky enough to make my mother bring her laptop to her room so she could see the registry and pick my gift. Also FB's mother, sister, sister-in-law, and niece came. I'm so glad that there is zero tension or drama between any of our families about us getting hitched. I know there are those of you out there who could tell some horror-in-law stories, so I'll count my blessings. Also a good friend from college who I haven't seen basically since then came.
We had a great time at Panera, including some cookies and bagels. Yum! My friend had a couple really sweet ideas planned for us. We had a love quotes quiz, which I won. I knew 13 out of 15 of them. The other game was a don't say FB's name game, I did pretty well until I got too excited while opening presents! Also each person got a card to write to me with advice or whatever, then on the envelope they had to write when I could open the card. Lots were for the day before the wedding, some are for the first week we're married. My niece put "When you have your 12th kid" I'm just going to go ahead and open that one soon, cuz there's no way that'll ever happen!!
Now onto the fun stuff.... I got some GREAT stuff! My aunt got my Kitchenaid mixer! yay! I got several kitchen utensils and our bathroom stuff. We got a really cool collage frame. My brother and his family went ahead and gave me one big gift instead of a little shower gift then another gift later. They were so sweet to get me my dishes! I can't wait to use them. I'm also really excited about the side tables we found. My friend and her mom and sister got me one, so hopefully someone else will get the other.
The most sentimental gift I got was from my momma, who else, right. :) She got me the Willow-tree couple hugging. Love Willow-tree!!!
Coming as soon as I can get around to it.... Bachelorette Bash! This weekend was a lot of fun, and I plan to tell you about all the craziness soon. Hopefully my two lovely maid of honors will send me pictures soon.... hint hint!
