Reason 49: Bridal Shower!

Saturday, April 24, 2010.

I am so blessed.  Saturday was absolutely wonderful.  My almost-mother-in-law and my almost-sister-in-law threw me an AWESOME bridal shower at their home!  Complete with a chocolate fountain, strawberries, lemon poppy seed muffins, family, friends, ward members, and relatives- it was an all-around good time.  I am so grateful for the INCREDIBLE gifts I received!  I did not expect such a large amount of really nice, needed items.  I feel more and more ready each day to start a "home" (even if it is in a 100 year old apartment!) and take care of a husband (crazy!).  So thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  It was wonderful to catch up with everyone, visit, laugh, and join in the general shock we all felt as we realized that the wedding is SO CLOSE!

Me and my mom walking in.  Look at all the Sunflowers!

The glorious, and well decorated, spread of food!

Me, Denise, and Grandma Kathy.  This TOTALLY describes our relationship(s). Haha.

On the left we have my one-in-a-million grandma.  She is so cool.  
In the middle is Aunt Rebecca.  She is the most kind, faithful, loving, and genuine person I know.
On the right is Aunt Pat.  She is witty, gracious, and SO hysterical! (#5? Haha!)

Cousins Jenny, Cindy, and Bonnie!

My bouquet that can supposedly predict that a very future child will be of the male gender.
And a twin.
Good one, Aunt Rebecca.

Jason got his Lego set!  Thanks Grandma Kathy!
And sorry Maren, guess you'll have to figure something else out! ;-)

Thanks to all those who planned, baked, assembled, babysat, came, sent gifts, sent wishes, etc.  The love and support we feel means the world to us.  Life is seriously SO GOOD.

Tell Jason that we will race our twin lego sets someday.

P.S. that was Maren. Jocelyn left hers signed in on my computer. :D
