bridal shower

My amazing bridal party - I feel so blessed to have all of them in my life!  L-R: Laura, Megan, Me, Jessica (maid of honor) and Sarah)
Yesterday was my bridal shower and it was an amazing, fun and wonderful day.  My mom hosted at her house, we put card tables in the yard so everyone could eat and enjoy the amazing weather and I realized how blessed I am to have so many great women in my life.

The food was wonderful (five kinds of "salad" sandwiches), fruit, veggies, potato and bean salad and more pie than you could dream of - everything was so good!  My family from Pennsylvania came for the day along with my aunt from Toledo and my bridesmaid from Cleveland.  

My cousin Crystal and her team won, she's standing to my right in the back.  My mom would kill me if she knew this picture was on here and Facebook.  Shh don't tell!
We played the toilet paper bride game, which was a blast and I got to pick the winner. 

When it was time to open gifts I sat down and felt so overwhelmed.  I introduced my bridal party and really started to tear up.  I couldn't believe this day had finally come.  I've been to so many bridal showers and been in so many weddings that it feels surreal to be at my own!

My next task, to find a place for all of these amazing gifts and to get my thank you notes in the mail ASAP!
