A Bridal Shower Re-Cap

I just ran into a really creepy guy at the fabric store. Isn't there some kind of unspoken rule that says creepy guys and fabric stores don't belong together? If there's not there should be. From the moment I walked in until I left 10 minutes later he stared at me. The. Whole. Time. He was sitting in a chair with a coat and scarf on...and he just stared. Finally when I was at the counter checking out he said to me, "You have really pretty hair." I thanked him and made a quick escape.

But that was not the point of this post.

I've spent the last day and a half wondering if my sister-in-law Rachel loves me or hates me. Remember when I told you she was in charge of the game at my bridal shower? Let me show you a picture and then you can be the judge:

(go here for the reason behind this game)

See...I'll bet you're confused too. Does she hate me or love me? She made me sign the contract BEFORE I knew what the game was. I should have known better than to sign it...but there were about 60 women sitting there watching me, and I really had no choice.

It was like this: The guests had to answer questions about me, and I had to guess as to who said what. The circled locations (where I have to kiss Jason) are how many answers I got wrong...Jason's going to LOVE this!

As far as bridal showers go, the one my aunts hosted for me was lovely! We had aunts and cousins from all sides of the family (mine and Jason's) and some good friends came too, to add to the fun!

One of the highlights for me was meeting who have been around a while know Tiffany as one of my dearest blog friends. I LOVE that you came Tiffany and I hope you didn't mind when I called you Tiff!

So...after unloading all of my gifts I'm just wondering...anyone need some salt? I have enough to last for 12 years! (It was a kitchen/pantry shower.)

I have a great family, and Jason does too...I feel incredibly blessed! (Except for the part about my sister-in-law...she and I are going to have to have a heart to heart.)

I'll go easy on her...she just had knee surgery.

I love that I got to come to the party too! It was lots of fun.

Here are some things I learned about Noelle at the shower:

She is beautiful! The pics don't do her justice. Simple as that.

She takes teasing well.

She is warm and gracious.

It's hard being the center of attention in a room of 60 women and she took it like a champ.

She chose the high road and didn't open the lingerie in front of her mom and prospective mother in law.

She has lovely sisters, sisters in law and an amazing mom.

There are approximately 12 zillion people who love her.

Thanks for the invite! So happy I got to finally meet you!!

As for the creep in the fabric store... ick and ewww.

hilarious game! And crazy about the creepy guy at the fabric store. I've met some odd people there before but nothing like that.

Ick! I think there should be a rule that overly creepy .. um.. gentlemen shouldn't leave their homes! I had one named "Bubba" ask for my number.... No thank you.

Hehee! Love the game!

I love your sister in law for making that poster. Can Jason and I be friends now?

Jamie said...

Well, my computer will not let me click on the picture to make it Larger "AKA Readable", althought I am assuming it is funny, I really cannot comment. I am really curious, so could you send it via email?

I am so...what is a good word, because jealous, envyous, and such are awe (good word) of Tiffany, she got to meet you in person! One day Noelle...One day, we too will become real to each other, just like the Velveteen Rabbit!

The creepy guy at the fabric store is YUCK, EWE, GROSS and they will disappear once you have an escort (i.e. husband) to the store...but seriously, the security camera's should have picked him up and they should have asked him to leave...

SO glad you had fun at your bridal shower.

Have a nice week.

At least uber creepy guy didn't touch your hair. Yeah, that's what happen to me in the checkout line at Target around Christmas time. That is so not o.k.

Glad your shower was so lovely!

Kissing your sweetheart at Wally World is not that bad!
