Me Me ME!

I'm usually one of those people that you don't notice, I'm in the corner keeping to myself.  On my wedding day, I wanted to stand out, and that's why I'm posting this entry.  Because its all about ME!

It wasn't just a bridal shower because I invited boys too.  FI worked so hard on our registries I HAD to let him take part!  We were given a spectacular shower by my MOH and her mother.  I cannot describe how much food we had, if anyone left hungry it was their own fault!  We had an amazing time and got way too many gifts. 

We played some really fun games, yes I said fun, we did a newly wed game that was a real hit.  I wish that one would have lasted about twice as long because I loved it!

We also DYIed some guest book pages, just like we are going to use for our wedding reception.  When we got home we sat down together and read them, that was my favorite part of the night.  The page included a section that could be used to draw a picture of us, that was rather interesting.  We also included a section for their favorite memory of us, I loved that because I had forgotten so many of the things that people wrote.  I can't wait for everyone to fill out the ones at our reception! 

MOH placed disposable cameras at each table, I can't wait to get those pictures back, because many of them were taken by tiny little hands, as you will see below.


I love my honey!

Ok, so everyone needs to have these for their shower or wedding reception.  They were so much fun!  I loved coming home after the shower and reading them, so many memories!

I am 5'5'' and as curvy as they come.  I've always been self conscious of my curves, but I'm putting all that aside and getting some surprise bpics made for my fi's birthday/wedding/graduation present.  

bpics photo 1bpics photo 2bpics photo 3 She is making my corset.  Check out her shop.  She is amazing.  I told her I needed it quickly and she has definitely worked very hard to get it to me on time.  This woman is amazing! 


Ok, these were so much fun.  I was really nervous at first and had no idea what to expect, but my photog was amazing, as always.  She gave me great direction and had some cute ideas.  I am having them put into an album and I am going to give it to him just before he sees me on the big day.  She said that she should have the book ready for me to preview in a week or so.  A big thank you to LB, my MOH for going with me!  She was a big help and gave me support, and helped me lace up my corset.  Shannon had me roll around on the floor and I felt like a mix between John McCain and a turtle on its back.  I couldn't move in that thing.  It was pretty humorous.


Here is the hub's reaction when he got the book:
