Bridal Shower

I had my first bridal shower on Saturday, my mom and sisters threw it for me!! It was a "surprise"!! I kind of had an idea...I was not allowed to go into the fridge on Friday, I had to ask my mom to get something out for me...that's a hint and that I wasn't allowed to go home until about 1:30pm and so, I had to keep myself busy since Jared was at his grandpa's helping him cut a tree and doing some yard work!! We had tons of fun, played a ton of games, chatted tons, ate some yummy food. It was good. There was some crap going on, which I won't get into too much, just makes you realize who your real friends are and on and on..maybe more later on that. But I had tons of fun at my mom's and sisters shower...check out some pics..

Surprise!!! Me walking through the front door!!

Opening presents..some of the gifts I got..Jared will for sure love the lingerie and the champagne for the honeymoon!!



The Suttorp girls...my baby sister didn't join us 'til the end, she had to work!!

Me, with my future sister and mother in law...the McGowan Girls!!

After the shower it was a pretty laid back Saturday night...I was so tired went to bed super early. Sunday got up to meet with the photographer, fun..she's awesome..then spent the day with Jared, hanging out doing wedding stuff, went to Michaels, got Jared's passport pics...delivered invites, all Jared's...cleaned his place..soon to be mine. He has a computer lab in his kitchen/entrance way, and it's driving me nuts..monitors, keyboards, processors, computer parts everywhere. Jared and his brother were planning to sell them..that was in February...they have to go..either a garage sale or the dump. But, the place looks clean!!

So, that was my weekend!! I hope everyone had an awesome weekend!! Just wanted to let all my bloggin buddies know that, now with the wedding getting closer I am having less time to go on the computer, I try but it's hard. So, I'm trying to make it out to everyone's blog but, if I don't for awhile just know that it's wedding busyness and, that I am trying :) I hope everyone has a fabulous week..thinking of you all!!
