my bridal shower

Originally I thought I wasn't going to have a bridal shower... I don't know it just didn't really seem like my thing and honestly I dread opening presents in front of other people. When Cyndi (my MIL) told me her friends wanted to throw me a bridal shower in St. Louis I was excited but a little nervous.  What was it going to be like having a shower with a bunch of women I had never met before... was it going to be awkward opening the presents?  I really shouldn't have worried at all because the bridal shower was so much fun and so beautifully done.

I honestly cannot thank Donna and Sharron enough for throwing the perfect shower.  Every detail was just so sweet.  Oh, the cakes... ummm the cakes were delicious!!!

I got so many amazing things off our registry... so many fun items for the kitchen.  The funniest/funnest present was definitely the "panty poem" from Kevin's cousin Lauren.  I had to read a poem and pull out a pair of panties to go with each line... every panty was attached to a long string that we passed around the room... too funny!

I felt so blessed to be surrounded by so many women (most of whom I had never met) who were so genuinely happy and excited for me.  It was such a great experience.
