Bridal Shower Bonanza

I can't believe that May 22 is almost here. It's 37 days away, but who's counting? Certainly not me!! =) Just like the days, my bridal shower approached at lightening speed. What a beautiful occasion it was. It was the most beautiful bridal shower I had evern seen. And no, I'm not being biased....my Aunt Norma told me so! I can't take credit for anything though. The master mind behind this function was my maid of honor Karean with the help of my Aunt Heather and Yasmine. When Karean throws a party, she really goes all out and in a few you will see just what I'm talking about.

Not only was the party wonderful, but I had friends and family (and friends that are more like family) travel near and far for my special day. It means a lot that people traveled from Toronto, Canada, Buffalo, N.Y., and Spartanburg, SC just to be with me. The bridal shower was more special than anyone could ever know. Being that they couldn't make it to my destination wedding in Punta Cana, they made the extra effort to come to my shower. I don't think God could have blessed me with a better set of friends and family. There were so many people that I met through different periods of my life. I wasn't quite sure how they would all mingle and get along with each other but it was a piece of cake. Everyone got a long so well. I think it was the most successful estrogen fest to date.

It was hard to choose just a few pictures, so I posted a lot of them. I hope you enjoy these pics as much as I enjoyed my day with these special people.

XOXO

Let me explain this picture. This is the "How well do you know your man" game. There are 20 questions and for each one that I got wrong...I had to chew a piece of double bubble. 12 out of 20 isnt too bad (and I got the 3 bonus questions right on top of that =D) but 8 pieces of gum is not so fun to chew. It was rather disgusting actually.

LOOK at that wad of gum! Ewwwwwwww
