Heartfelt Thanks and Bridal Shower Fun!

Happy Monday lovelies! First off, I want to thank each and every one of you for your comments on my last post. I was still in a bit of shock when I wrote it. The support of the blogging community has brought so much to my life. One of my fave bloggers even touched on these feelings in a recent post; check out Wendy's post from Saturday. She is simply amazing!

I am feeling much better about it; I know that we can get through it! I think I just needed a day or two to wallow. I feel like I'm back to my old self again. So let's get to some shower pictures! My work shower was this past Friday and my bridal shower was on Saturday. Both were outstanding! My matron of honor reaaaalllly outdid herself with my bridal shower. We still had a great turnout despite the not so great weather. The shower was in a room called "the wine cellar" and it was decked out like, you guessed it, a wine cellar! It was awesome! Right up my alley :)

The flowers (I have pics but not on my work computer) were stunning! Christina had them done by the florist who is doing my wedding. They were white hydrangeas with pink roses in square vases with pretty stones in them. I brought one of the centerpieces to my office today :)

Some pictures: Modeling my outfit!

With my lovely matron of honor in front of my wine table. In addition to all of my gifts, each guest brought a bottle of wine. I am a lucky girl!

Very excited by all of the wine! I think I have around 25 bottles :)

The best matron of honor ever!!!

Modeling the rehearsal bouquet of bows. Super hot!

I'll be back later with a more thorough recap. I just wanted to express my gratitude to all of my fellow bloggies out there. You guys rock! Have a great Monday everyone :)
