My First Shower!

Bridal Shower, that is. Last Saturday marked the "kickoff", as I've been calling it, to all of the wedding festivities! My Beautiful MOH threw an amazing shower that I shall never forget! Everything was perfect... there were a lot of fabulous people, Rick and I were blessed with many wonderful treasures, and the food. OH the food. Must give credit where credit is due. Elle did a great job of planning the food, along with her Momma, and my bridesmaids Nikki and Emily. There were BLT sandwiches, fruit skewers, pasta salad, Veggies and dips, Buffalo chicken dip, "Pink peacock punch", and individual cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes. I think we need to have a silent moment of appreciation for these cakes. These cakes are going to be the reason I don't fit in my dress. If you haven't had one, stop reading and go get one.

This shower is what got me excited for everything else that's to come. I call it the "kickoff" because after this, there is a wedding "something" almost every single week and weekend until the BIG DAY. So Cheers to Noelle for creating the perfect start to my own personal wedding season!

White sand. Clear blue ocean. Palm trees. Mango mimosas. Lobster tail. These are the phrases that I use for meditation. I find that when wedding things start getting stressful, repeating these words does wonders! Of course, I am talking about our HONEYMOON! We are going to spend 8 fabulous days at the Sandals Royal Plantation in Jamaica! We chose this resort for the all-inclusive feature, the fantastic reviews (of the hotel, staff, and the food), and for the fact that our suite comes with butler service! I absolutely cannot wait to be sitting next to the ocean and have my drink replaced before I even finish the first one. This resort has a private beach, and we plan on using the watersport inclusions to the fullest! And can you believe we will have a butler?!? Not sure I'll know exactly how to have a butler, but I have a feeling it won't take long to figure it out! ;)  Can you say "Jeeves, I WILL take that second margarita now."
