Another bridal shower and I even did some scrappin...

Yes, I did some scrappin this past weekend!! It was for my CJ and the birthday page for Muriel, but hey it was some scrappin!! It felt good, and fun!! I don't think I'll get to do some scrappin for awhile...that's okay 'cause soon I will be scrappin wedding and honeymoon pictures!!

So, my weekend was good busy as usual with the wedding getting closer. It's only 19 days away!! I can't believe it!! I still have so much to do, but I'll be okay. No freaking out yet!! I don't think I will, only nerves might kick in maybe the day before but that's good nerves so, that's okay!!

Saturday I went with Jared to see a guy that makes alterations on kilts. We ended up leaving early because the kiltmaker needed some more fabric in order to add to the kilt since, it was too small for Jared. We didn't bring it with us. Now Jared has had his kilt since he was 18years old and that was like 10years ago..so he has grown a bit. Luckily Jared's mom had saved some fabric so, he had enough for the alterations. After we went to the Bay, to pick up some gifts from our gift registry that were there for us!! Love all this gift stuff!! Jared went to work and I stayed home and did some scrapping!! YAY!! And just relaxed!!

Sunday I had a my bridal shower with Jared's side of the family. Jared's mom. grandma and sister arranged everything.We all had a good time!! I was officially welcomed into the MacDonald/McGowan clan, with lots of kind and welcoming words and I even got "pinned." Which means that the mother-in-law pins the sash of the kilt fabric to the bride. So, that's what happened!! We had some food, chatted and opened gifts, which is always fun!! Got lots of fun goodies, gotta start on the thankyou cards now. Later that night Jared and I went out to dinner with his brother and his girlfriend. We went to Milestone's my fave restaurant..then later we did more wedding stuff, finalizing the guest list, a schedule for the day of and kind of started on the seating chart but we had both had enough.

Gonna share with you some of the bridal shower pics...opening presents!! I think it's my favorite part..you can see my "sash"!!

Okay Blogger is behind sucky..that's all the pics I can post for now...I'll try to share more later...

So, guess what tomorrow is?! Yes, my birthday. My champagne birthday, 27 on the 27th!! Although it doesn't even feel like my birthday with all the wedding stuff going on. My sister Olga says my birthday doesn't count this year because I'm getting married...I kind of don't want to turn 27!! I'm getting old!! UGH!! I get to celebrate with the children at school which is kind of cool, I've never actually celebrated my birthday at school so, it's a first!! Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!
