This is a three part post:
FIRST: We got our first RSVP back from our invites last night and we just mailed them on Saturday! And go figure, the first person to RSVP was one of Mr Fix It's kind of silly party type friends...he responded via our web site! Yea! So excited.
SECOND: You know what's super cool? Asking Mr Fix It to grab the box of 98 invites and drop them in the mail box at the post office knowing this is the first time he is seeing them in the envelopes and holding your breath with anticipation because you know he is going to flip out and make some negative comment about your super cute personalized photo stamps and the lovely envelope wraps you designed which you are in love with. But...wait for it...my little lovely fiance shocked me when he looked at them and said "Is that our picture on the stamp? Are you kidding me?" To which I told him yes and gave him the answer about how much they cost (cuz I knew he couldn't get away without asking that question). Then I said "But don't they look great, honey?" And you know what he said? "They look *REALLY* good...very nice." Oh, how this man I love can surprise me sometimes!
THIRD: In less than three weeks, my lovely baby sister (MOH) is throwing me my bridal shower. I'm so excited about this big event to get all the ladies in my life together and celebrate our love and friendship. (Have to admit that I'm a little sad a few of my super close friends won't be able to make it due to prior engagements - but such is life in this hectic day and age.)
Anyway, just thought I'd share the main shower invite she created with all of you. It was not what I was expecting at all...but I guess my sister wanted to play off the fact that I love to cook and have lots of little gadgets and recipes and such for my kitchen.
I've had a few friends say they think the invite is super cute and reminds them of me...so I guess she did a good job on the personalizing it aspect. The whole affair has been a complete surprise and I have not been able to have any input at all which is totally fine with me. I trust my little sis and I want to be surprised, too.
Anyway, this is the first party / get together where I'll have my entire bridal party together (except for my bestie who lives in Idaho). I have been waiting for February to arrive for a while now...can't wait to share some pics and details with all of you at the end of the month.
So, did you have any special or favorite things from your bridal showers or is there something wedding related you are looking forward to as the big day nears?
