This past weekend was my bridal shower! I’m officially (un-officially, I guess) getting married in just over three months. I was a little afraid for my bridal shower because I don’t like being the center of attention but it was actually an awesome time. In fact, the whole weekend was just a wedding weekend!
On Friday, we babysat my adorable niece. Ava is about 18 months now and is the cutest little munchkin. It was great to see Patrick actually interact with her and read and play with her. He is still in the “babies are scary” part of his life so the experience of taking care of a kid is good since we’re only a few short years away from having our own. They were adorable together and it was nice to spend time with her.
Saturday was a crazy wedding day. We went flower girl dress shopping and MOG (mother of the groom) dress shopping. I was so excited to see Ava in adorable dresses and figure out which one she’s wearing for the wedding. She obviously looked precious in them all, but this was hands down the winner:
Then we went to my bridal shower. I’m so incredibly grateful to everyone who came to the shower. It’s not often that I get to see my family and I loved having time to spend with them. My sister did an amazing job with my shower, too. Patrick and I are so fortunate to have family that are helping us create a home. We have so much new stuff to furnish our first real home with and I can’t wait to use it all. The first day we were home, we got our bed all set up with new stuff from the shower. It looks so cozy and home-y now.
This past weekend we also got all the final details from our reception hall, including extending our reception! Before we left, we met with the new priest at our church to get and give all the final details for the wedding. We were asked a bunch of questions about our lives and had to get all the details figured out for the wedding. But, it’s finally all taken care of. Patrick and I still have to do the FOCCUS test and send in some paperwork but we should be all set to go for the wedding.
Now that we’re home, we have 2 dogs with kennel cough, my spring break, and a million thank you cards to write out!
