Can I just tell you that this weekend has been a lot of fun but I am WORN OUT!
Friday night was the lingerie shower and it was a lot of fun. Here is our table full of yummy goodness. Some of Mandy's friends made all of the food and everything was so good. We had fruit salsa - so yum! I will get the recipe and post it soon!
I made the punch and got the petit fours. Aren't these the cutest bra and panties cakes you have ever seen? I thought they turned out so cute!!!!
This is the groom's sister, Aimee, and her best friend Jennifer. We were tri chis together at OBU and they had to throw up the X's for me for old times. We were hoping we would get to join up in the tri chi circle and sing the song to Mandy (who was a tri chi too) but it didn't happen. So sad.
Jennifer, Kenley and Elizabeth. A fun thing happened to us - while most of the girls were in the kitchen after opening gifts I looked behind my couch and saw this ENORMOUS toad. I mean huge. I was too shaken up to take the picture. I screamed at K&E to come help me and brave Elizabeth (the most girly girl I know) scooped it up in a bag and took it outside. I spent the rest of the night wondering how on earth such a HUGE frog got in my house and I was VERY concerned about it. I found out this morning from the Mother of the Bride that one of the groom's friends put it in a bag that was coming to the party as a joke - hoping it would jump out at Mandy. Well, the joke was on me.
The bride and some of her OBU friends. Thanks for all of your great shower suggestions - I found the cutest nightgown at Old Navy. It covered all the basis for me. She got a lot of really nice stuff.
My sweet friend Elizabeth and I ended up being in charge of the food somehow. It was a very stressful job. Pretty much our entire church came to the wedding and it was a huge job trying to get all the food and drinks out and staying replenished. We were pretty much in the kitchen the whole afternoon. I told her at one point that I felt like we were Laverne and Shirley trying to set up a wedding reception (if only you could have seen us and some of the things we were trying to do). She made it fun.
This is our "we are EXHAUSTED" pose! I got to meet a sweet girl, Rachel, at the wedding. She reads my blog and I wanted to give her a shout out! I wanted to take my picture with her so I could post it on here but it never happened.
Scott and I got Shogun to go (one of our favorites) and I am about to go get in bed and read magazines! :-)
