On Sunday my mom went above and beyond (love you mom!) and threw me a bridal shower. I'm gonna confess right now that I had no idea that was even thing. I've never been to one before and I wasn't sure what to expect. Apparently it's just a good excuse for a bunch of ladies to get together, day drink, eat cake, and open wildly inappropriate gifts:
In other words, a great time ;) My mom had a diy bingo where everyone wrote down which specific gifts they thought I'd get which made present opening really interactive and fun. And speaking of all the gifts, I got so spoiled. Originally I was anti-gift registering because we've been living together for awhile and we already have most things we need. But then I walked around Target with one of those scanner things and suddenly I had one of everything in the Target housewares section on my list. Funny how that works out. We wound up with quite a few home items, some honeymoon luggage, and lingerie. So much lingerie.
My aunt, a gift wrapping artist, turned all my bows into a bouquet for me to carry down the aisle during the rehearsal. This is yet another tradition I was completely in the dark about, but thankfully my lovely friends and relatives have my back with all this wedding stuff.
A huge thanks to everyone for coming out and precelebrating our wedding. Can't believe we're only 24 days away from the big day!
