First Wedding Shower!


This weekend was our first shower! It was sooo fun! We had a great time and received so many great gifts that we will put to use soon! Plus it was a BEAUTIFUL weekend: Here is a recap:

Our pretty cupcake cake. These were deliciously filled with fruit filling!


Opening our very first gift! I think I was afraid that Luke was going to rip the bow. I need those for my rehearsal bouquet!


Opening the quilt my mom made for us. I was so excited! I was secretly hoping that she would make us one! :-)


Us with our new quilt. It has pictures all over it from our years of dating, and our name monogrammed in the top left corner and the date of our wedding in the bottom right corner.



Us listening closely to Samantha tell us how much she loves these pots and pans. They were the gift from the hostesses. We were excited to get them!



Reading the cards.



Woo hoo our dishes! They are so pretty!


Me with 4 of my bridesmaids (missing one). They are so pretty!


Luke and I with our mothers.


Me with my mom, grandma, and sisters



This is how I felt at the end of the day: overwhelmed!!


It was such a beautiful shower and a fun day. We are so thankful to everybody that helped put it together and everybody who came to enjoy the fun with us!

thanks for the recap! Even though I had to miss it, I feel like I was there. Now..on to business...where did the cupcake stand come from? Did your hostess have that?? I'm looking for an attractive cupcake tower to own. The only bad part is...Dale will kill me if I buy anything else breakable that has to be packed b4 our more this summer to Denton. : )

Be blessed! Looks like you and Duke Luke are off to a great start!

Cafe du Brazil was fabulous. We need for brunch at least once a month. it is so trendy.

SOme of your facial expressions are priceless! At our wedding shower (well, one of them) Jason was like a kid in a candy store - he loves presents!
