    My sister, SIL and aunt hosted a bridal shower for me at my Mom and Dad's house in MD this past weekend. It was mostly my elderly relatives who came, but ti was really nice b/c so many of them I hadn't seen in years and they are as old as 91 so it's likely this could be one of our last 'girls' get-togethers for the family. And most of my "aunts" are actually my Dad's aunts ... that's why they are so much older. :-)

    In any case, not too much in the way of exciting photos, but I know you love pics, so I thought I would share. :-)

    I got lots of kitchen stuff (CorningWare, mixing bowls, large measuring bowls, palm tree cheese spreaders, beautiful cherry wood salad bowl and the matching wooden forks which matches our kitchen's cherry wood perfectly), $$ for the honeymoon from our registry, bath towels, gift cards from Macy's BB&B and Home Depot, matching "just married" flip flops, fondue set ... I know I'm leaving some things out but I can't think ... and a "Sex for Dummies" book from my uncle. lol

    Oh -- and my favorite gift -- a BW photo from 1939 of my Great grandparents and their kids in front of their farmhouse. I'll have to take and post a pic of it. It's awesome!

    I wish they had taken some pics of the decorations and favor bags. It was all a red and silver hearts theme -- since it was so close to Valentines Day. It was really cute. And my SIL made a heart-shaped cake that was gorgeous!
