Update: Oh my, I’m trying to recuperate from a sugar coma. I ate too many sweet meatballs, cream puffs drizzled with chocolate, along with too much cream cheese toffee ball on chocolate graham cracker sticks and sherbert punch!
Here is the bride (in blue) along with my girlfriends who helped with the shower. (Me, Bev, Sharon, Erin (the bride) and Mandy.
Look at this amazing watermelon fruit basket Sharon made.
Here is one of the bouquets I got at the Farmer’s market for $10!!!! Can you believe that? And behind the flowers you can see the beautiful raspberry punch Bev made. Mandy and her daughter Mackenzie are back there working on their yummy peanut butter white chocolate Cheerio clusters.
And we played “The Price is Right” where the women had to guess at the price of the items in the cleaning caddy (notice the princess tiara for Cinderella). Whoever guessed closest to the total cost for everything won a prize. We had so much fun! It’s been years since I have been to or hosted a bridal shower so it brought back greatmemories and lots of girly stories.
After they all left I came to write, but beforehand I decided to read through more journals. Wow, it’s more than my heart can contain or tell about at this moment. My hands want to type, but my brain cells are seriously lagging behind. I think I need some coffee and I’ll be back. Of course it will be here tomorrow so I am sure you have better things to do than wait for me :-).
Remember, Monday I am offering a great give-away and another part of what is next in this story. I want you to be part of it!
From this morning…
My post with the rest of the story will be up later today. I am hosting a bridal shower for my friend Erin, at my house at 2pm. The house is clean. The food has been purchase, and the tables are set up. I thought I’d be able to write this morning, but as I looked around I decided I still need a few things to make the party all “pretty.” So, I’m off to the Farmer’s Market where I heard they have beautiful bouquets of flowers for really low prices. I have never been to our Farmer’s Market so this will be an adventure. Have a great Saturday and I’ll be back soon!
