Taking Back My Twenties

Shower Scenes

Posted on Apr 21, 2013 | 19 comments

Guys, I had the most wonderful weekend!


My bridal shower was so lovely I nearly cried.


It was hosted by three of my mom’s close friends, who have watched me grow up:)


They prepared a beautiful spread of food, sangria, and pear punch!





Everything was delicious, but I think these bacon-wrapped pears stole my heart.

Although everyone knows cake is my true love.


Strawberry in the middle!


I think my favorite part of the shower was a newly-wed game that the hosts had put together with Matt’s input. I did pretty well, but was stumped on a few of the questions.


Opening gifts was pretty fun too!


China from my mom!


I hope the guests had fun too – I think Mazen loved being around so many ladies…



The shower was only the highlight of the weekend – I also got to spend tons of quality time with family and friends. I’m sad it’s all over, but so thankful to the hosts for such a sweet shower.
