Here Comes The Bride

Well...not quite yet!

I had my first bridal shower brunch this past weekend. I was so grateful for all the hostesses did for me, and I was especially grateful to all of those who "showered" us with outstanding gifts.

The hostesses included my Aunt Yvonne Alford; my cousin, Brooke Cain; and her sister, Farrah Gibson. They did a tremendous job with the food and decor.

To give you a sample of the food, pictured below is the cupcakes that were served. It just can't get better than chocolate or white cake with buttercream icing. Can you say, "Yummy!"

I had some excellent helpers that day, too. First of all, my future sister-in-law, Abby, was quite the help. She was in charge of accounting for all of the gifts I received. Lord knows I would  hate for someone to not receive a thank you card. Major No No!

I had a tiny helper, too. She was more in charge of delivering gift certificates to Abby and throwing away the trash. You can see how much she was trying to help Aunt "B" in the picture below.

She was also in charge of the entertainment.

Yes...that is her scary face.
Yes, I am responsible for teaching her that.

I received some very amazing gifts that ranged from Arthur Court pewter ware, fine china, everyday china, and the practical everyday needs.

I have three more showers coming up....

April 10th- Couple's Tools and Gadgets

April 11th- Lingerie Shower (fun, fun!)

April 18th- Church and Family Shower

I can't wait for the rest of the wedding festivities!

As of tomorrow, only 50 days until the wedding!
