Wedding Wednesday, My Bridal Shower

First I'd like to start off by saying once again, THANK YOU to family and friends. Jon and I have been completely spoiled and we couldn't be more grateful! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

My bridal shower took place last Sunday at my grandmothers house. She was so gracious to host it and my grandfather was so gracious to help load everything into Jon's truck. My sister aka maid of honor, Jessica and my mom did most of the planning and organizing. My bridesmaids (my sister Brandy, Jon's sister Lauren, and my best friend Angelena) were all so great to help with food, games, and flower arrangements! And my junior bridesmaid (my niece, Londin) handed every gift to me as I opened them. Jon's mom, grandmothers, and aunt brought yummy food too. And my friend, Lena flew in from Florida just for the occasion. Seriously, how lucky am I for all of these people in my life!?

I have to admit the morning of I was feeling a little down because my 2 aunts and cousins, and some friends couldn't make it. To top it off I hit stop and go traffic on my way there- talk about stressful! But when I entered the party I felt nothing but joy and love. Would it be obnoxious for me to say "thank you" once again to everyone!? And now for some pictures...

One of the games was whoever said "wedding" had to wear the veil. Here's my grandmother with it on.

And here's my sister, Brandy (who so graciously put together all of the games) with it on!

A gift from Jon's nephew, Logan. His and Herr's potato chips... how cute

And another gift from Angelena that I LOVED- 6 bottles of wine each of them we are supposed to drink on different occasions. So thoughtful!
