I'll let you in on a litle secret about me: I am shy. Like, really shy.
Some of the folks I work with may not believe that, because work is my comfort zone and I have no problem being assertive or sharing my opinions (aka getting on my soap box) in that environment.
But in most social situations I'm quite happy to be the gal in the background, mellow, having a good time and just enjoying the company. So I was a little nervous about this weekend:
my Bridal Shower!
Which by definition sort of meant that I was the center of attention. Eeek! Scary stuff for a shy girl!
I can't believe how time is flying by. Just a few more weeks till the wedding!
I have to hand it to my amazing friends Erin, Erin and Chris. They put me at ease and made the bridal shower brunch absolutely fabulous down to the tiniest details. Those girls can cook. And they are crazy-crafty! Love them!
It was a relatively small shower, with mostly family, due to the fact that we are having a pretty small destination wedding. The work these ladies put into the event (and dress shopping, and honeymoon planning) has really been extra special for me since I don't have a mom to help with those things (long story for another time...this is meant to be a fun post!)
I didn't get to take as many pictures as I would've liked... I had my hands full of champagne punch, sweets and lovely gifts, but here are a few shots from the day....
