Goin' to the chapel (and we already got married): Bridal Shower & Bridesmaid's Lunch Recaps

Things I've accomplished today:
1. Making myself a sandwich. Usually Thomas does this for me because his taste better.
2. Dusting, vacuuming, and picking up the whole house.
3. Pet MDing some weird scab things around Jack's mouth. Either he has mange again, or I'm paranoid (possibly both).
4. Applying for [another] job at Georgia Tech.
5. Thinking about going and buying a tart pan for an amazing recipe I'm going to be making Friday. Look forward to the recipe!
6. And most importantly, figuring out how to tie my hair up into a bun thing using no hair tie. True talent.

Tomorrow is the Death Cab show! I'm suuuuper excited. The show starts at 8:00, but we're going to leave pretty early since the venue is around 30 minutes away. It just so happens that Death Cab's front man, Ben Gibbard, is married to my other favorite person, Zooey Deschanel. I may or may not be bringing this sign to the show:
Just kidding. Mostly.

As promised, today begins the sequence of wedding recap posts! Exciting stuff. I'll start with the recap from the bridal shower and then show you a few pictures of the bridesmaid's lunch, just to warm you up and get you in wedding mode!

My shower was thrown by my mom's friend Karla. She has great taste and a beautiful house, so I knew it would be awesome. It definitely was. Here are some of the highlights and cutest details:

The coolest thing ever: M&M's with our picture on them! 

The beautiful centerpiece and some of the delicious food.

 Me and the grandmothers.

My mom and Deana made a super cute guest book page with little thumbprint birds.

Janie and I (we can pretend Gracie is in this one since she was still away at school).

Roomie love.

The best dessert in the world: petit fours from Mrs. Camp's. 

Me and the moms. We're so well coordinated!

All the amazing gifts! I love looking back at these now that we've unpacked and started to use everything.

My mom and Karla, the hostess/shower-thrower-extraordinaire.

For the Bridesmaid's Lunch, we went to a local girly cafe and bakery called Sugarbaker's. They have great desserts, all of which they home make every day. After lunch, we all went to see Bridesmaid's (how appropriate) and it was super funny/inappropriate.

I had to photograph these cute little bags. Each girl got a different color that represented their personality (not really. But it sounded good).

I always take pictures of Lauren drinking. I don't know why, but I like it.

Janie was also drinking, but to her credit, I snuck up on her.

And BAM, there's Gracie making an awesome face.

This is literally the only proof that I was there.

I KNOW you're wondering what I ate. Good thing I got a picture!

 These were our desserts. My favorite was the chocolate cake on the left.

 Present time! They could hardly wait to tear into them.

Each of my ladies got a necklace and pair of earrings from Dogeared. I wore the same ones, because I loved them THAT much.

We didn't take pictures of the movie (because it was a movie), so that's all I have of the Bridesmaid's Lunch. Tomorrow we're recapping the Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner! 

 Charlotte's cute little spotted belly.

  1. I had no idea that you can get M&M's with a picture on them. Blew my mind.
