    Last night a group of about 12 of my classmates threw me a 2nd bridal shower. It was so thoughtful and sweet- especially since only one of them is coming to Mexico. I am very blessed. Here are a few pics for ya.

    Someone said if you break a bow- you'll have a baby- so this is me- trying to.

    My friends made themselves little outfits out of the bed bath and beyond wrapping paper which was super cute. ha ha

            aww that's so sweet, yamille! i too was amazed at the love and generosity of people (i had THREE showers, when i didn't think i should even have one, considering the cost of attending the wedding, and that most of these people weren't going to be there for it)!

            i think when people recognize a true and honest love, they want to celebrate it and reward it. congrats!

              i didn't think i would or even *should* have a shower, but i had THREE. your wedding is not for awhile yet ... who knows? you could be pleasantly surprised! aren't showers supposed to be surprises anyway?

                  I have a thread about how I didn't think my sis knew about showers and stuff and was wondering if I was going to have one at all. I totally understand. I will say that I mentioned my desire to FI and he sort of just told me to trust that all my friends and fam know what I need. I had never really wanted one but as I got closer to the wedding... I realized that I did want a girls day- not so much the presents actually but that was really fun. I say put it out into the universe if you really want it.

                  I didn't know abou this whole bow thing I just thought it was funny. I think when I was younger I would have avaoided breaking a bow- so I get that! I still didn't break one though. Someone got me scissors. We aren't trying till the end of the year anyway.

                  BOth of mine were a surprise. I had an idea about my family one but I actually didn't think my friends would trek outside the city. I'm no good with surprises. I'm too controlling. My friends had to all come up with several lies.
