showered with love

This weekend Jill, Liz, Liz's mom, my mom, and Doug's mom threw Doug and I a beautiful shower. We felt so loved and supported by the friends and family that were there. They decorated with mums, and paper lanterns, and served a buffet of homemade soups. It was delicious. We played a fun game and opened presents. Everyone was so generous to us, we had said we were registered at Bed, Bath & Beyond and we also were having a mattress fund since Doug and I both have twin beds. We ended up receiving over half of what we registered for, and probably 2/3 a mattress! Wow! I liked that it was a little smaller so I was able to talk to everyone that came, and it was a beautiful day to boot. People ate, and chatted, and laughed, and stayed later, it was fun.
I walked in to see our old Barbie bed on a shoebox and was confused until I put 2 and 2 together that it was for our bed fund! (later I labeled the box so no one else would wonder)
Liz and her mom are the QUEENS of gift basket making! They had a nails basket, chocolate lovers basket, honey basket, movie basket, baker's basket, and basket of Liz's raw food goodies
Jill made this fun he said/she said game and people had to guess who said what.
I didn't get a picture of the moms! Fail :( they were probably clearing plates or something.
Thank you everyone who came and everyone who helped and everyone who loves and supports us! :)


  1. You look so gorgeous!! What a beautiful shower!!!

  2. How did Doug do being the only guy there? I didn't think the guys typically went to the bridal shower. I didn't! :)

    1. he did great :) we just did one shower so half the ladies there were his friends from school/church or his aunts/mom. He has quite a few good friends that are girls. I was glad he was there
