- Wedding: November 2011
I was SO nervous for this shower. I wrote a post about it, put my game face on, and got through it. I didn’t know many people. But my parent’s friends were so sweet, and I got so many wonderful gifts! My baby sister (and MOH) worked her butt off making every decoration and cooked all of the food. It was awesome…
One sad part of the day: my FI’s 8 year old cousin arrived and was SO excited to give me her gift. She begged me to open it ahead of time so we could “set it out” for the shower. So my mom made an announcement, and everybody watched as I began to open it. It was a beautiful porcelain doll, complete with blonde hair (like me!) and a gorgeous wedding dress. When I went to flip it over, the face was shattered! FI’s cousin immediately burst into tears, and I felt SO BAD. I didn’t know what to say but I kept consoling her and got her to stop crying.
When it was time to open up everyone else’s gifts, I asked her if she would like to sit with me in the “princess chair” (I called it that because they had it decked out for me with pink balloons and decorations) and help me open my gifts. I think that made her feel a lot better….
annnd I may have had my own reasons for wanting her to sit next to me, I really didn’t want to be the center of attention! Haha. But, without further ado, pictures!
My grandma and I:
There are obviously a ton more, but I don’t want to bore you guys! Sadly I can’t find the pictures of the decorations and food table! It was so pretty…I’ll have to post them when I do find them.
