"Mama Watts" (MW) who hosted the bridal tea. Her daughters are the closest thing I have to sisters on the face of this earth.
I woke up extra early this morning for no real reason in particular. It wasn't a special morning except for the fact that we were planning to visit a new church and maybe do a little shopping. What could it be? And over my quiet little breakfast of oatmeal and banana (while the hubby laid in bed still snoozing) it hit me. Today was my bridal shower tea. Well, today a year ago. And to remember such a special day, I thought I'd share that beautiful occasion. Because a year ago I did not have this blog to share such memories with y'all. (These were taken on my old point and shoot, so I'm sorry to say the detail shots aren't exactly spectacular)
All the china was from MW's own collection. She has been collecting these mix and match pieces for some time now.
Do you see those scones in the background? Oh, I LOVE scones (one reason I DO NOT keep them in the house...hehe).
Fortunately I also love fruit, and that I keep lots of in the house. (Would you hate me if I told you I like veggies too? Because I actually do).
Always experimenting with camera angles. At least now (as of 2 weeks ago) I have an SLR for such photography experiments. It took me a while to save for the SLR, so I'm beyond excited to learn how to use it.
All the lovely ladies! From left: Elizabeth, Hannah W, Hannah M, Kim, Caitlin, and Liz.
Presents! If only I knew as a bride-to-be how much these gifts would come in handy! Everything counts when you're starting out.
I ADORE my Pottery Barn Gabriella dish set! Use it for EVERY meal EVERY day.
And this hangs above our bedroom door. Still love it just as much as the day I opened it.
*clearing throat* Let's move on to the next gift, shall we?
Tupperware! These I am using all the time! And I consider it a miracle that all of these little Tupperware pieces have returned safe to me from M's lunches (because on occasion he has brought them back a few days late and smelling rather nasty. I'm pretty sure it's a guy thing to leave Tupperware in your desk draw where things might grow in it unwanted. Any of you other ladies have this manism?).
And there is the sweet Tupperware strange mold grower himself.
He showed up at the very end. And I love him despite his on occasion forgetting the Tupperwares at the office. Lord knows I have enough faults of my own!
Now this is Caitlin. She was one of my bridesmaids then, and now she's the bride-to-be with a fall wedding date. And I get the pleasure of standing next to her as her Matron of Honor.
Liz and I acting in a peculiar fashion per usual.
My Maid of Honor, Kim.
And just think...we've shared so much over the year- from eating chocolate ice cream and wearing geeky clothes in middle school to celebrating a wedding and marriage. Now when Hannah and Liz marry their Prince Charmings I want first dibs on throwing the showers!
