- Wedding: May 2013
My Bridal Shower/Batchelorette was on Saturday. It was amazing. My MIL was unable to switch flights and come up from SC because she had planned a trip over a year ago to the Womens NCAA finals in New Orleans. But other than that, the whole day was more than we could have ever wished for!
It was planned at a local mexican place. When we walked in they were playing Jimmy Buffett (our favorite, just happened to be on). Tacos and Margaritas were served. My Mom and aunt made the cutest center pieces of margarita glasses and sand and tea lights. FI’s grandmother made it, which made my heart soar. She is also coming down to the wedding which makes me incredibly happy. The girls made up a trivia game which was awesome and had everyone laughing. And we were showered with gifts that shocked us both. We can’t believe how generous everyone was. I can now re-do our whole kitchen and bathroom and much of our bedroom!!! My bridesmaids even got us Tiffany Coffee mugs!!! I can’t believe how lucky we were.
After we cleaned up. The girls met back at my house to change and one of our friends drove us into Boston to a bar that had an 80s and 90s band. One of my other friends met us after he got out of work at the house and in we went! When we got to the bar I was met with the wonderful surprise of my boss and co-worker who came in to meet us!!! I was so excited. We drank and danced the night away. At one point a list of things for me to do came out… I did a few… at one point getting some guy to sing “you’ve lost that loving feeling” from Top Gun to me! It was hysterical. We all had a great time and there was no drama!! It did not get any better than that!!! All in all it was a fabulous day!
