- Wedding: July 2011
So, I’m an encore bride so I really didn’t mind not having a shower. I registered for a total of 22 items, knowing some people don’t feel comfortable giving cash. That being said, today my FSIL was taking me out for lunch. I really didn’t know where but she just wanted us to have some relaxed bonding time before my wedding week kicks off.
So we get in the car and she informs me that my FMIL wants to join us. Umm, okay. I really love my FMIL but I was looking forward to a “sisters” day. It’s okay, I suck it up and we’re off to go pick her up. We round the corner into her development and there are people everywhere!!
I’m like, “What in the world….?”before I recognize my daughter, my best friend, my aunt and that it’s all of my family. They threw me a surprise shower!!
All of my bridesmaids were there and the food was amazing and my cousin Tasha (who is an extremely accomplished Pastry Chef at the casino restaurants) made my absolutely gorgeous cake.
It was just an awesome afternoon. I just sent my FI off to his bachelor party so I can have a quiet night at home with my big honking cake!!!
OH! AND my amazing co-workers surprised me with a shower as well. I was hoping to leave a little early on the last day of the week before the director popped up with a surprise staff meeting. Turned out to be another surprise shower at work! 4 different departments contributed and I was so touched.
