Wedding Shower! :0)

This past weekend, we threw a wedding shower for my sister in law. It was a joint effort between three of the bridesmaids as it was supposed to be a Bridesmaid-hosted shower. 

It went over without a hitch and I feel as if I can finally breathe again!  We sent out 115 invitations and had about 70 people show up!  Great turn out, great friends, good food…we had a fabulous time!

Well, I had a fabulous time…all except for the Chocolate Fountain.  This will come to be known as the “Great Chocolate Fountain Disaster of 2011”.  Don’t ever say the words chocolate fountain to me ever again.  I had to wash it out twice, re-do the chocolate, add more oil…sadly, it never did work for us so we took the fountain part out and let people just dip the items in the chocolate. The bad part? I worked on that stupid thing for an HOUR AND A HALF! Oh well. 

Seriously, I. HAD. CHOCOLATE. EVERYWHERE.  You can see it on my shirt (luckily, I brought my shower clothes along with me so I could make messes and it not really matter!).  Well, it was on the countertop, on the floor, on the programs for this morning’s service…ugh.  Disaster.

Now onto happier times! :0)


Our fabulously awesome centerpieces!  We were very proud of these! :0)

This is Melissa and I acting like idiots cause we are cool like that.  The pins on our shirts say “Bridesmaid” and ours were both crooked, so we took a picture with our heads crooked. Nerds, I know. That’s how we roll.


Bridesmaid Hostesses with the Bride (she’s the one wearing the pretty corsage)! :0)


Melissa decided to use part of my chocolate fountain as her “handle” and she sang “I’m a little teapot”.  She’s special…but that’s why we love her! :0)


….and last but not least…..

Here’s the reason I SCREAMED and RAN out of the storage room.


I found a church mouse!  He was a friendly church mouse though, and we reasoned that he has Jesus so he’s ok.  :0)

That’s all from the shower and I’m glad it’s over so I can finally breathe again! :0)

Backtracking to Saturday morning….I woke up at 5:30 a.m. and met my running group for a six mile run!  We ate at cute little local cafe after the run and I had a blast! I look forward to more days like yesterday! :0) Needless to say, by 7 p.m., I was exhausted! I slept 10 hours on Saturday night!! I needed it! lol

Now, I’m blogging and watching the Super Bowl with my husband and my parents are about to join us!  We are having Taco Soup for dinner! :0) 

Two years ago, when the Yankees and the Phillies were in the World Series, I wore my Astros jersey to a World Series party at my In-Law’s house.  In spirit of that night, I’m wearing my Saints jersey now to represent my home team! Hah!  I’m a nerd but it’s ok! :0)
