My Bridal Shower!

This past weekend, my future Mother-in-Law, Ida, with help from my parents and bridesmaid Kathryn, threw me a lovely shower!  It took place at a restaurant called Carmines - but I think I will affectionately call it "that Italian restaurant with food and portions to die for!"

My mom, dad, sister, and 8 month old niece, Madelyne, flew in on Friday.  Ida flew in on Saturday.  It was a family packed weekend full of fun!

Ida, myself, and Kathryn 
My lovely Shower hosts!

Confetti and Favors (personalized lip balm! LOVE it!)

My mom and I  (love her)

My cousins and Aunt came! 
(my mom's sister)
The dessert presentation was awesome
(and yes, I took the leftovers home)

Ida gave a heartwarming speech

I make funny faces when opening presents!

My mom, sister, and I showing how big the pan is she bought me.
(we're obviously related)
((I heart this picture, lots))

Kathryn made my rehearsal bouquet out of bows!

Sarah shared comments I said as unwrapping gifts as potential things I will say on my wedding night!
("Where's the hole" --b/c I couldn't unwrap a gift... etc)


My bridesmaids and I!
(My sister, Marlo, Kathryn, me, and Diana)
((Meagan couldn't make it, understandably))

I had such a lovely time!!!


  1. I kind of love that picture of you, your mom, and Marlo too. Seeing you & Marlo in the same frame of a photo makes my whole heart smile. Grown up sisterfriends are the bestest.:)

  2. How fun!!! Your mom is lovely!!! :) Looks like you had a great time! Hope you got lots of awesome gifts! :)

  3. Looks like you got spoiled rotten, what fun!

  4. I have never been to Carmines but I am definitely going to have to try it out. I heart delicious italian food with ridiculous portions.
