Bridal Shower Fun

So, I realize I had hoped to be caught on my blog by now, but that obviously hasn't happened. I'm not giving up though. I have a little bit of free time today and thought I would take advantage.

This summer is when my engagement began to feel "real". I guess it didn't really hit before now because I've been busy with school and other life events, and also because we've had a long engagement. I wouldn't have it any other way though. I've enjoyed the engagement and planning process.

The first weekend in June, two of my Mom's friends threw me a bridal shower. It was a lot of fun and we got some really neat gifts from our registries in our hometown. The food was great and the decorations were in our wedding colors, blue and yellow. :)

It was nice to get to share some special time with family and friends. And of course the gifts were nice too! ;)

Here are a few pictures from the shower.

The picture table. Pictures taken throughout our 7 year relationship! :)

A cake stand. That I was very excited about! :)

We got some of our Fiesta Dinnerware! A cream and sugar set from my uncle, aunt and cousins.

Fiesta heart-shaped ramekins/bowls.

Painted goblets that match the cake stand.

An apron from my Mom! :) Love the satin blue trim and polka dots.

Flower arrangments that were on the tables. So pretty.

There were more pictures of everything, but these were some of my favorites.
