bridal shower, part II

Time is moving fast over here.

I had a wonderful, but busy weekend with family, friends, packing, and a few wedding things scattered here and there.  I'd be lying if I said I wasn't facing the consequences of my birthday festivities right now...

I can't believe I forgot to share with you my second shower put on my my aunt and grandmother on my mom's side of the family for church friends and family friends a couple of weeks ago!
It was daisy themed with cute little blue and yellow accents.  It was held at the community center in the townhouse complex where my grandparents live.

yummy orange punch. (not made yet?)

the pretty wild flower/daisy arrangements

I was glad people chatted while I opened gifts.  It made me feel less intimidated than if they were all watching me the whole time.

lots of tissue paper to fold!  I had plenty of help.

Grandma and me (ps. isn't that brooch awesome?)

I look odd in this pictures (sick of smiling?).  But this is my mommy.

I had a really wonderful time with all the lovely ladies from my church and long-time family friends.  My aunt had each of the married women write me a note of advice.  That was so precious to have advice from women who've been married any where from 2-50 years share with me what they've learning about marriage.

We played a funny twist on bridal trivia game with bingo.  There were some tough questions.
And, as always, my gifts were so generous!  It's always interesting  to see who gets me what type of gift from my registry, according to what their tastes or interests are.

Anyway, that was my second shower!  

I am leaving for CA this time tomorrow for my last 'visit', and my last time traveling without Eric!
We plan to buy a bed, sign a contract for our rental house, start moving into the new house finalize music, and I have a job interview!

I can' wait to see my hubby, even though there are only 3.5 weeks left until the wedding.  I"ll need to keep myself busy for some of the time because he still has two final exams to take , so I hope to get at least one more post in this week.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend!
