AW - Shower/Bachelorette Weekend! (SO LONG, LOTS of pics)

I decided to just start a new thread to AW all the things. 

My shower was amazing. I was so overwhelmed with almost all of my most favorite people all in the same room together, it was so surreal. The food was delicious, there were so many presents, and mimosas, and SO. MUCH. LOVE.

It wasn't a surprise, as much as I look shocked in this picture:

My mom made my bow bouquet:

I got so many fun gadgets - my kitchen is full of awesomeness, and I can't wait to make ALL the things. I got the Kitchen Aid mixer, a Ninja blender, a four-slice toaster, an electric wine opener, a breakfast sandwich maker, a new crock pot, plus the bedding I was dying for from Pottery Barn, a penguin pillow, a wine box with a bottle of Save A Bull wine (proceeds go to support our local humane society!), and the white moose head for the wall. And so many other things that I can't even remember them all. I was spoiled rotten.

THEN it was bachelorette time. My soon-to-be SIL brought me to the hotel, and the girls had decorated the room - all in Red Sox stuff!! There were banners and balloons and streamers and baseballs, it was AMAZING. I had a bride-to-be sash, and @Swazzle made me a veil with a Boston "B" on it - and on the back of that, @hummingbird125 drew and hid a little penis. So it wasn't TOTALLY penii-free (but I didn't find it until pretty late in the night, lol). I had a special "bride" wine glass that my MOH made me. And then I walked outside to find a white limo waiting to take us everywhere!! And that came from my FI!! He's pretty spectacular. :)

We got all decked out and went to a Paint & Sip, which is EXACTLY what I wanted to do!!

After painting, we went to dinner at Margaritas - which just happens to be right across the street from our venue! 

image

My MOH made all of these adorable props for us to use, and @Swazzle & I were convinced that this "necklace" was a beard. I mean, honestly, why would it be a beard??

image

After dinner, we went to a local bar, drank WAAAYYY too many things, and danced our little tushies off. 

image

Total shenanigans. I was hurting BAD yesterday. I'm still SOOOO exhausted. But it was totally worth it. I drove home with Vi yesterday afternoon, and came home to MORE presents waiting for us - including one from @Phira!!! (Thank you SO MUCH, lady!!!) 

FI & I ordered Chinese food, and I was in bed by 9pm. 

Thank you so much to @swazzle, @hummingbird125, @buddysmom80, and @csousa1 for helping to make this weekend extra spectacular. I don't know what I'd do without you bitches. <3<3<3

    I can't take credit for the making of the veil! That was all @buddysmom80 and she did an awesome job!


    OF COURSE IT'S A BEARD.


    I love you and I'm so glad I was there to celebrate with you <3

  • Looks like you had an amazing weekend. I love all the photos, and agree that is not a necklace. Love love love the dress you wore for your shower!

    What an awesome day! I love the idea of the whole painting as a group thing. I recently did that for a bachelorette party and it was a TON of fun! (In my mind - so much better than going to a club to dance). Also you look freaking fantastic in your outfits! Glad you have fun :-D

    @TwoDimes - FI & I call Violet "Moose" as a nickname, because she's just a big lug. I grew up in Maine, and legitimately had a moose who lived in our backyard for a while. I have a special place in my heart for moose :) 

    Here he is :)
