So today was my bridal shower!!! It was such a great day but it did start off kind of rocky and with disappointment. My mom who was really excited about my shower and helping out woke up this morning with the flu. She thought she could fight through it but half an hour later was really feeling terrible. I understood and felt so bad because I know how excited she was and really I did want her to rest and feel better but I was really bummed out and disappointed that my mom wouldn't be at my shower. I haven't had any wedding events leading up till now so I was really looking forward to this and having her there as well. I decided to shake off the initial disappointment and tried to focus on the fact that it would still be a great day and it would be better with her resting up rather than trying to fight through a flu at a party.
Once I got there it was great. My maids of honour did a beautiful job decorating and planning the whole thing. One of them wanted to plan a Mexican themed shower and well the other one...she's actually Mexican. You can see how the planning got "interesting" at certain points (which I'm hearing about now). They agreed on a subtle Mexican theme. haha! The best part though is that my other mom (my friend's mom)- Mama Rosa made her famous burritos!! So good!
ok enough of the debrief...here are some pics
My lovely maids of honour:
So they were all asked to get me something for the wedding night....did I mention my 90 year old grandma was there (the girls didn't think this one all the way through but it was funny and maybe a little embarrassing at times lol)
So I now have lingerie to last a lifetime but not everyone got me lingerie....this was by far the most embarrassing gift I had to open in front of everyone (you don't want to know what I'm showing everyone...or maybe you do haha!!)
Oh we also had games including this one where everyone wrote a joke vow from me to Sean. This one was also really embarrassing to say out loud....big surprise the same person who got me the gift from above! Love those guys though, they certainly were the life of the party!
I had a really great day and feel so fortunate to have my girls who took so much time and effort to plan this day for me!
I think we settled on a bachelorette party for either Dec 11 or 12. @perianjay my girls were talking about Remington's haha it made me think of yours!
