Bridal Goodies.



The weekend of May 1st my very wonderful friend Jessica threw me a beautiful wedding shower.  Between the two of us we decided a “tea party” themed shower would be fun.  Everyone could dress up and wear derby hats, because when do you ever get to wear a whimsical hat? Jessica went all out on this party with a delicious spread of quiches and brunch goodies. Jessica even had the cake look like a tea pot complete with two tea cups…


It was so wonderful to have many of the important women in my life all in the same room.  My sister flew in from CO and put on a pair of  pretty shoes!

While I enjoy being center of attention it’s really hard to sit there opening (very generous but appreciated) presents with 20some sets of eyes on me!


A few games were played. We had three troopers sporting toilet paper wedding dresses, team Lindsay and Danielle won, a close second with team Mac and Liz, and sad to say but Gail and Pam came in last place, all teams put up a good fight though!


The party favors, designed by my mom, were of a tea party theme. I had such a great time seeing everyone and seeing all of Jessica’s hard work planning such a fun party, the wildlife on the wall also partook in the fun!

Thank you to all my friends and family who came out that special day-I love you all but a big THANK YOU goes to Jessica, who threw a fabulous party!


i’ll party, rob can work.


This past weekend was my first bridal shower.  It was so nice to see the majority of Rob’s family if not for the first time, again.  We played a cute little game, ate delicious food, and then opened presents!  It’s definitely odd sitting there opening presents in front of 20 faces…I do love being center of attention but this was a little different.  Rob’s Aunts really did a great job planning the event!

While I was opening presents, Rob and my dad were busy building a fence…

The weekend previous, my friends Ada and Frances threw me a fabulous Hennette Party.  It’s a combination of a Hens night and a Stagette —a bachelorette party in Canada, where Ada and New Zealand, where Frances is from.  We had so much fun! A few games were played and then we hit the town.  I’m so glad all my Madison friends were able to come out and even one of my Kzoo friends came to visit! A great surprise!

we lasted the whole night.

The next day, while I wrote out “thank yous” Rob built himself a bike rack to fix his bike.

It’s been a really fun couple weeks-two months from today is the big day! As much fun wedding planning is, I just can’t wait to enjoy being married to Robear!
