The B-I-L's Wedding Shower

As you can see, I haven't made blogging a priority the past week or so. My bad. I've been enjoying the beautiful weather, along with my beautiful 1 year old son and amazing husband! Sometimes you just have to enjoy life, or it will pass you by. 

SOOOOOO....I thought I'd take some time to share some pictures from the wedding shower I put together for my brother-in-law and his future bride! We had it in Gadsden on the 14th and it went wonderfully! The weather was perfect and it made for a great day! 

I fell in love with this invitation and designed the shower around it. It came from Etsy, and it was sent as a digital file, that way I could print off as many as I needed. I had them printed at a local shop and saved a LOT of money that way!

Their wedding colors are malibu blue and white, so I decided to use blue for the shower. Instead of trying to match everything to the same shade of blue(which would be near impossible), I opted to use a few different shades of blue. It worked out well.

This table greeted guests as they came in.

With a jar of "Secrets to a Happy Marriage" for the couple. Guests added them as they arrived.

These fudge covered pretzels were so good! My mom dipped them in blue melted chips so they'd go with the color scheme. :)

Yummy chicken salad croissants. A must have!

You have to have a little salty, with some mixed nuts.

The spread. We also had cheese/crackers and fruit.

The cake was inspired by the invitation.
Blueberry Lemonade
Lemon Water

Ladies chattin' it up.

I'm gaining a wonderful new sister-in-law in a few weeks!
They just look so good together!
Kerrie had to have a last-minute wisdom tooth extraction the day before and was not feeling too well. She was a trooper and braved a smile the whole time!! (thank goodness for drugs, HA!)
Sweet hostesses, Christie, and my SIL (Adam's sister) Melissa. They were a great help!
My amazing parents! My mom did SO much to help with the shower and it wouldn't have come together without help from the both! Thank you SO MUCH!!

The shower came together beautifully, thanks to my mom & dad, Christie, & Melissa. I am so excited for Adam & Kerrie's big day in less than 3 weeks!!! It's going to be beautiful and I'm so glad they found each other. They are PERFECT together! I love you both!!

Oh, and a little weight-loss update: I've now hit my original goal of 30 pounds, and then some. (well, only like 1-2 pounds some, but still) I'm looking to lose at least 8-9 more pounds. I've dropped about 2-3 dress sizes and things are becoming too big!!! Hooray! I'll try to do a photo update in the next few days.

Hope y'all have a fantastic week!!!


  1. Such a lovely bridal shower. The arrangements are beautiful. Couple of days ago I attended my cousin’s wedding at one of wedding venues Los Angeles where fabulous arrangements were done by wedding planners. I had a great time.


Thank you for reading and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I enjoy reading every single one of them!!
