As Promised

Hi. I'm back!

As much as I would love to post pictures from the wonderful evening that was my bridal shower - I can't.

Because I don't have any. Not. A. Single. One.

Pictures from the evening do indeed exist. I've seen a few here and there but unfortunately I'm not thrilled with the way I came out in the photos. In my opinion, I somewhat resemble a bloated rhinoceros.

With lipstick.
And fun shoes.

Because of my striking resemblance to this large horned mammal, I have been reluctant to request copies of pictures from that evening. My sister has one that I vaguely liked. But just one.

One. Single. Picture.

Yup, I'm that vain.

So moving on.

I haven't finished my thank you notes. I'm almost done. I didn't want to rush through them. I prefer to take my time and make each note personal and from the heart. Some notes were more difficult then others.

"Thank you for the..............napkins...."

How does one incorporate thoughtfulness and heartfelt thanks when it comes to napkins?

".....they will adorn our table when we have family and friends over to celebrate life's multiple joyous occasions!"


Other notes just flowed and flowed and before I knew it I was running out of space and thanking certain individuals not only for their presence at the shower and their gift, but for the important role they played/play in my life.

Those notes are the funnest.

But alas, the mattress pad notes also need to be written....

"Thank you for the luscious mattress pad........"

Hmmmmm. So many places I could go with this one........

Happy Monday!


  1. I'm sure you looked absolutely gorgeous for your shower! We all are more judgmental of ourselves!

    Oh thank you fun! It is nice when you don't have to think too hard on all of them. But that mattress pad...oh how many different ways you could go! haha
