Hi, friends! Long time no see! Sorry I was MIA yesterday. I was up early to catch my flight to Ohio and didn’t stop until I went to bed 🙂

This morning we were up and out by 4:30 AM, landed at 7:30, got home and tried to go back to bed and then went out for Mother’s Day brunch – so now is the first time I’ve checked my email, blog, etc. since Friday! (I think I was going through withdrawals 😉 ) Needless to say, I’m a little exhausted!


My cousin’s bridal shower was lovely! Her MOH did a fantastic job putting everything together.

There was tons of great food – and believe it or not, I only got two pictures of the whole day! I tried to take pictures of Lauren opening presents, but they all came out dark and/or blurry. What a bummer.

This cream-sickle cheese cake was deeelicious!

And the food table was stocked! Oh my Lord – there was so much to eat! And look at that little watermelon basket. Too cute, right?

We played a few cute games like, How Well Do You Know the Bride?, Bridal MadLib, and a bridal word scramble. Then it was time to open presents! It was so funny to learn that Lauren and I both hate opening presents in front of people. It makes us so nervous! I was glad to see her do it a month before me. If she survived, I know I will too 🙂


Like I said earlier, this morning my dad took us out to breakfast. As you may remember from Friday – I love going out to breakfast 😀

I ordered a delicious veggies omelete with rye toast. My favorite!

Now I’m back over on my side of town about to go run some errands with Cory. I can’t believe that it was one year ago today that I graduated and got engaged to my best friend. Talk about the best day ever! 

This picture makes me smile every time 🙂

We’ll friends, I’m out for now! If you’re a mother, happy Mother’s Day! I hope each of you are surrounded with ones you love today (and always)

Let’s chat – Did you get your mom anything for Mother’s Day? My brother and I got my mom a new camera! Does opening presents in front of people make you nervous? Uh. Heck yes!

  1. I LOVE opening presents——but not in front of people!! Where did this come from!?!? Glad we’re not alone;)

  2. Opening presents in front of people makes me sooo nervous! Even if it’s just in front of my boyfriend or immediate family! I’m always afraid of what my expression will look like. Even if I love it, I’m on the type of person to jump around and scream, haha.

  3. I hate opening presents in front of people, it makes me so uncomfortable! I love watching people open them though!

    Um….that is the cutest picture ever.

    I got my mommy some makeup form Sephora because that woman is the pickiest person in the world. Everyone likes flowers right? Not my mom… =/

    I got my mom makeup from Lancome, it’s what she wanted. I also sent her a card that she said made her cry. 🙂 Success.

  9. My heart skipped a beat when I saw that picture until I remembered you are already engaged and it was an old picture – haha!!!
