What a weekend

WOW! I cannot even put into words what a wonderful weekend this was. I had two bridal showers, one was a tea party theme thrown by B’s mom and one was a BBQ Picnic theme (just like my wedding!) thrown by my mom’s sister. It was a lovely weekend with so much love everywhere. I can’t get over how nice everything was and how amazing it was. Big thanks to everyone who could make it such short notice and I’m getting SO EXCITED to get married!

I got some stuff from Victoria Secret and was SO embarrassed! I couldn’t even hold it up.

One of the favorite gifts of the day, the Kitchen Aid! I got it in chrome and can’t wait to mix lots of stuff in it.

All the lovely ladies at the tea party! We all wore hats and it was so much fun. We had tea and mimosas and it was so relaxing and special. All the food B’s mom made was AMAZING! I think I ate like 200 little cakes.

My LOVELY bridal party. :)

The next shower was at my Aunt’s house and she did an amazing job. Kicked it off with a delicious and filling meal. :) She made all my favorite foods including pulled pork sandwiches and potatoes and fruit and we had an amazing red, white and blue trifle at  the end of the shower! We played a few games and it was really fun.

I got a food processor! Here’s to chopping up lots of stuff.

I got such an amazing gift from my aunt! She made me a table runner for every season. It means so much because my mom sewed and quilted with her. We got so much great stuff! I can’t wait to find out if we get the house so we can put all our stuff in it!

Another lovely bridal party picture. Such gorgeous and amazing girls!

B came at the end of the shower and helped me load up the gifts and transport them all home.

B also got to open a few special gifts. He opened up a feather bed, some cook books and our Dyson Vacuum! As you can tell he loves it.

Yup, he’s all mine! :)

What a great experience and I still can’t get over how much fun this weekend was. I was a little nervous for it but it was great and I had so much fun! We are so thankful for all the people in our lives! Everyone is so generous and kind and it means so much to me. Next weekend we have the bachelorette party and then the next weekend we are getting married! I did work out a ton this weekend too, I can barely lift my arms above my head today! haha awesome!

Tomorrow I will try to post some workouts I have been doing to help get my arms wedding ready!

    So excited for you!!! Some girls at work want to throw me a bridal shower since my fam is all in Wisconsin, and I have the same phobia as you about opening presents in front of people!! I hate being the center of attention!!!

    Where did you get your dress for your second bridal shower? It is adorable!!!

    SO much fun! Love the tea party theme, and it looks like you got some great gifts. (I’m obsessed with both our stand mixer and our food processor.) The seasonal table runners, though, are my absolute favorite. So special!
