My First Bridal Shower

Yesterday, my Aunt Maurine hosted a bridal shower for me. I had never even been to a bridal shower for someone else before, so this was my first one all around.

Some of my Mom’s sisters and my Grandmother came, but it was mostly women from my Dad’s side of the family…most of which I had never met before. They were all very sweet and helpful (which was needed since I had spent the night before in the hospital and was still running on some morphine). We snacked, talked, opened presents, you know, the regular. It was great!

Just like getting our engagement pictures done last week, each piece makes it more and more real. Now I have a bedroom full of things for our new apartment and the wedding seems that much closer.

Thanks to everyone who could come! I had a great time.

YOu never realize how great all those gifts are until you get married and start realizing you would have had to BUY them all to it!
You looked beautiful no sign of wear and tear!
