My Bridal Shower!!

Hey friends!! I had such a WONDERFUL time at my bridal shower yesterday!! I have the best friends and family ever :) My BFF and MOH Jaime was the hostess. Here she is preparing a marvelous fruit tray for our granola parfaits:


She did a wonderful job putting this shower together! Everything was so cute!!


This was the yogurt parfait station. Vanilla yogurt, berries, white and dark chocolate chips, and granola! Does she know me or what?!?


The fruit was TDF! They were all super sweet!! When we went to pick out the strawberries at the grocery store, the produce man told us that to pick the perfect strawberries, you had to smell them. If they smelled sweet than they were going to taste sweet! Did y’all know this trick? Well, he was right!!


Me and my mom! Isn’t she beautiful!!?!


Jaime and I


The food!! This was a dessert shower so we had tons of sweets! It was PERFECT!! We had Blackberry Cobbler, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Cream Puffs, and Muddy’s Mini Cupcakes!! Everything was so good!!


My friend Jennifer brought the cream puff tray, I thought it was so pretty! I love cream puffs!!

We had a blast! With the fiancé's family, there is never a dull moment! I think we were laughing the entire time!! We played a game where everyone had to write down answers to my favorite things. It was so funny to hear some of the answers and who knew what! The fiancé's cousin ended up winning! Haha. My mom and Jaime weren’t allowed to play because they knew every answer! Everyone seemed to really like that game!

Then it was time for presents!! I felt so awkward having all eyes on me! I am not a fan of being in the spotlight!! Ha! Here is some of the stuff I got:


Present time!!


His Grandpa picked out this frame with a quote that says “All Because Two People Fell In Love” all by himself! I love this and can’t wait to hang it on my wall at home!!


This is the dish pattern I picked out at Bed, Bath, and Beyond! I got all my big plates, bowls, and mugs!! Like the pattern? I love it!


Super excited about the gift Erin gave me!! Mini muffin pan, baking sheet, and a pan carrier/transporter her grandmother made(pictured below)!!




Yay for towels from my momma!!


Knife set from the fiancé's mom


My Le Cruset Frying pan from Jaime and Charlie!!

Kinda blurry but Collierville High School class of 2003! Haha. Can you believe we all graduated together? I have been friends with Jaime since I was 10 and Jenn and Erin since HS!


Me and my future MIL!!

Sorry for the picture overload but needless to say, we had a GREAT time!! There were a lot of other people there besides Jaime, Jenn, and Erin, I just took lots of pics with them! Ha! Wedding showers are sooo fun! Kinda sad it’s over.


I had a GREAT run yesterday morning!! I set out right after I got up, around 7:45ish. It was kinda cool, around 48 but felt really nice! I only had 3 miles to do so I ran HARD!! I ended up doing 3 miles in 26:00 exactly!! Yay! It was awesome!!

No running today, I did walk 3 miles on the treadmill while watching some basketball. My workout schedule may be a little lacking this coming week because my floors are finally being done and I have to sit around all day while they work on it. So who knows when or if I will be able to run for the next few days!

Calorie counting has been tough this weekend! I kept up with it Friday, but yesterday I didn’t. I was just eating too many random handfuls of this and that to be worrying about it. Plus it was a special occasion so I splurged a bit. I’m trying to get back on track today and definitely will be by tomorrow!

Well, I think this has been long enough! Have a wonderful evening!!
