Shower Central

I was blessed with three bridal showers before I got married. It was amazing all of the people who wanted to throw me a shower! I was so thankful for each and every one of those showers...but the traveling for me got to be a bit much. All of them were in Indianapolis so I had to drive back from Cleveland all the time for wedding stuff. Boy did that get old...


Anywho, the only shower I have pictures from for some reason is the shower my maid of honor, my sister Jessi, threw me. Let's be honest, it was the best one anyway.


I wore the pink and black attire seeing as they were my colors. Gosh...I wish I was that skinny now. Those were the days. Who am I kidding...I only looked like that for about a month! I need to get married again to motivate me!






Jill, my very best friend, made me my ribbon bouquet that I used (forgot to use until the end) at my rehearsal. So sweet!





My dad even sent a gift to the shower from my dog! I know. That's my dad. He wrote some note in there from her about how she was upset that she was the only female I knew who wasn't invited to the shower. Hilarious! But true.





And I got to see one of my super cute friends from Purdue, Amanda, who I never, ever see. It was truly a fantastic day.





And what is a shower without a cake?? This was before I starting doing cake decorating...so thanks to Sam's Club for hooking us up on this one :)

Secret: Sometimes I pronounce the initials like "germ." Matt and I are "germ." Lovely.


I am dying now to host a shower of my own seeing all of the ideas you girls have all the time for parties. Jill, get a move on! Marry that boy already so I can throw one!
