Out with a bang

Have I mentioned yet how lucky I am to have such amazing bridesmaids? I have been looking forward to the shower they have been planning for months now, and they went over and beyond my expectations ten-fold! They hosted the shower at Chase’s and my new house so that our friends and family were able to see the new casa.  All I had to do was clean up the house and they handled EVERYTHING else.

We had so much fun playing games like “20 Questions about Chase.” Every question I answered wrong I had to add a piece of bubble gum to my mouth. I had 7 pieces by the end of the game, and that was MORE than plenty.

The girls, my mom, and Chase’s mom gave me an amazing gift consisting of candles of every shape and size.  Each candle is to be burned at different life-changing moments in our marriage.  Such an amazingly thoughtful gift.

It was also SO good to see friends I hadn’t seen in awhile! I wish I had more pictures to show some of my favorite people who were there that day — I’m sure more will surface in time.  For now, below are my amazing bridesmaids (sans Sarah who just moved to Florida to start a new job!), and my lovely, gum-stuffed self 🙂

Thank you, girls, for making my last shower go out with a bang!

A Fully Stocked Bar

No house is complete without a full bar, which is why I have been so excited for our most recent shower…Stock the Bar!  This past weekend a group of my favorite people joined us to help celebrate our upcoming wedding and bring us all sorts of fun drinks and accessories.  It was SO great to see many of our friends we hadn’t seen in a while, and even more fun to celebrate with them 🙂  Thank you especially to Beth, Sy, Jennifer, and Trevor for organizing such an amazing shower. Ya’ll are the best!!

A Heartfelt Thank You

What more can I say than I am SO blessed to have some amazing friends and family in my life. This past weekend, my mom’s dearest friends did an amazing job throwing me my first Ladies Shower in Marietta. I had such a blast laughing, crying, and eating great food with my favorite people in the world. I cannot begin to say thank you to the gracious hostesses, my awesome family that traveled from Tennessee, and my amazing friends. I can’t wait to get back  up to the house to play with all my new toys! I may just have to bake a cake!! 😉

Showered with Love

Chase and I wanted to send out a BIG thank you to everyone who stopped by to celebrate with us at our first wedding shower in Habersham. We had such an amazing time and are so thankful for all the beautiful decorations, delicious food, and thoughtful gifts. This shower was extra special to us because it was our first — the wedding now seems closer than ever. We’re so excited!
