Bridal shower pics:

I had SO much fun. :)

The awesome food spread. :)

The future in-laws :)
(My new sister-in-laws read books! My own sisters don't, so I'm excited!)

Embarrassed by the balloon chair and sash.

The matron of honor - my older sis - and me.

My mom and her mother (my Grandma Loot).

There are a bazillion more, but I don't want to bore you. :) We had 27 women there to celebrate with me.


  1. but but but, where are the male stripper pictures :-P JUST KIDDING

    Looks like you had a fantastic bridal shower!!

  2. Thanks for the pics of your shower. I hope you had a great time. Having loving family and friends really is wonderful.

  3. Congrats! These are such nice photos and it sounds like you had a fun time. It's wonderful that they all came together to celebrate with you!

  4. I loved Willow, hope you enjoy it too. Shiver's on my up and coming and Prophecy is on this week's list but I never stick to it so ...
    Here's my Monday post

    Thanks for sharing your cool bridal shower pics :-)

  5. Great pics! Thanks for sharing!

    The book I bought today: Screamfree Parenting (yup - we're struggling at the moment!)

  6. Did I tell you how jealous I am of your selection? Most of those books aren't even available in my library yet. Next up on my to be read pile is Twilight (I am ashamed to say that I am one of those few people who haven't read it yet)

  7. What wonderful pictures! I love it! Congrats and thanks for sharing! :)

  8. Your shower looks like it was a lot of fun! Congratulations.

    I have been using swagbucks and am up to 15 since I joined last week! :) I hope you are getting bonus points for me using it.

  9. Congratulatuons for such an amazing shower! That cake (I think it is) is awesome, love the desing!
    You got a busy week and it seems that next is going to be like that too, its understable that you haven't had enough time to read or to sleep for that matter!

    break sounds great.. though a bit sad and Prophecy of the Sisters.. yep can't wait!

  10. I liked you shower pics. Thanks for sharing.

  11. But two books are good! And love those pics!

  12. You read two books AND had your bridal shower this week? I'd say that's pretty good! Shiver is on my shelf, too - I can't wait to get to it.


  13. I can't wait for you to finish reading Shiver! I wanna read your review!!

  14. Your pictures are so cute and it sounds like you had a great time. Also, I'm so glad you got Eyes Like Stars. I loved it. =]

  15. Glad you had fun at your bridal shower and thanks for sharing some pictures.

    Right now I'm reading Give up the Ghost. I just started so I can't really say if its good or not, but we'll see.

  16. The pics are cute and the sash is funny.


Leave some love!
