My wedding shower was this past Saturday, hosted by my wonderful bridesmaids and my family in South County, RI. (Funny story about South County. There actually is no "real" South County. RI only hosts five real counties, with South County being something that residents of the southern-most portion of the state just plain made up. But I've digressed. Again.)
The shower was gorgeous. I've posted a whole slew of pictures in my Flickr account (the ones in the Wedding Shower set), with the talented Batman serving as both bridesmaid extraordinaire and photographer. NBF held down the fort by keeping me sane and keeping track of gifts. I had the pleasure of my family, Chris's family, and friends from all parts of my life in one room, at the same time. It was such an honor to feel so much love from so many people all at once.
The gifts - holy crap are people ever generous. Chris and I received so many nice gifts and so many unexpected surprises, like this absolutely breathtaking quilt, handmade by my very talented Aunt Linda. (More pictures of the quilt to be uploaded later tonight.) And the special purple frying pan, courtesy of my cousins.
And yes, there was a hat made out of a paper plate and the gift ribbons. And yes, I wore it. :)
But if you want to know why I received a basket of fancy toilet paper, or why packages of Nutter Butter cookies were part of the festivities, you'll just need to skip on over to Flickr and see for yourself.
THANK YOU to all of my bridesmaids, my family, and my friends who made this day so special for me.
