Wedding Wednesday: Bridal Shower!!

Last weekend kicked off the official wedding countdown with my BRIDAL SHOWER!!!  My bridesmaids did a wonderful job of decorating and hosting and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world!  I got a sash and a pin that said "Bride to Be" and all of my BMs wore black and fuchsia (wedding colors).  Best.Day.Ever.  Until the bachelorette party in a couple of weeks, and then the wedding. 

There was so much yummy food, including cupcakes made by my SIL, lumpia that my MIL brought, and a delicious fruit salsa with cinnamon and sugar tortilla crisps.  One of my bridesmaids also made sangria and her recipe is to die for! 

Everyone went around the room and introduced themselves and said how they know me, and those that had them shared fun stories.  It was a touching moment.  They had an advice book in place of a guest book which was such a great idea.  My sister put together the actual book and then put pieces of black and pink paper out for everyone to write their bits of advice on and then glued them into the book.  Later I went back and put all my cards in there too.  Some of the stuff they wrote was touching and other things were hilarious.

Of course I didn't remember my camera until I was too far away from home to turn around and get it.  FAIL!  I had one of my BMs take some pics with her camera, so until I see more from others, this is all I have.  Sorry folks!

I want to give a huge THANK YOU to my awesome bridesmaids who threw me this shower!  You ladies are the best and I can't wait for the bachelorette party and the wedding day!  I also want to thank everyone who was able to come and celebrate with me.  I feel so fortunate to have such wonderful people in my life!
