Can you believe JULY is already here!?
It’s going to be a short week of work, which alone is fabulous, but the upcoming week of weather looks incredible too. Makes me wish we could take our computers outside while we work. If only. 🙂
My older brother Dan’s wedding is coming up this weekend and that means fun things – like bridal showers. Would you believe this was the first one I’ve ever gone to? Most of my friends either didn’t have formal showers or had them too far away for me to attend. It was so great to be able to attend!
Bridal shower food is pretty spectacular – all “women” food (ha ha). There were all kinds of salads, roll-ups, tiny sandwiches, crackers, cookies, trifle, and punch.
Plus, an adorable lemon cake with strawberry filling! I love the bow!!!
I couldn’t eat anything except for a few veggies, but happily sipped some coffee and took part in all of the shower games. I even won a prize for getting the most answers correct about the bride! Couldn’t believe it. 🙂
Here’s mom and me with the lady of honor:
Having grown up with three brothers, I can’t tell you how excited I am to have a sister. I have many visions of recipe swapping and merriment in our future.
Welcome to the family Sara!! You are going to be a gorgeous bride.
I haven’t thought too much yet about a shower of my own. Having so few weddings (and showers) that I’ve attended, I have no clue what to do or how to do it. The good thing is I have tons of time before I need to worry about it. However, I hinted to Ben over the weekend that maybe we should think a little bit more about wedding planning – simply because we haven’t done a thing yet past booking the ceremony/reception site. The local Summer wedding show is coming up mid-July and I’m hoping we can find some fun vendors there and solidify a few more plans.
In other news, I’d been hoping, praying, and spraying the lillies in the hopes the rabbits would leave them alone. I watched as 3 big plants FILLED with buds were chewed down to two and then to one… and then each morning would find fewer and fewer buds. The last 3 in the middle of the plant looked promising but this morning I went out to inspect and found they’d been chewed off too.
Oh well, there’s always next year!
Do any of you have fun 4th of July plans? When was the last bridal shower you went to?
