Girl It Up

Tomorrow is my very first shower! My sweet mommy is having a get together at her house for me and I am super excited.

I drove down to Charlotte, where my parents live and got a pretty sweet little hotel room to girl it up in before the big day tomorrow. (Thanks, mom!!) The universe is being good to me, too, because I got some pretty craptastic news today and where I wish more than anything my hubby-to-be was here I atleast get to sit around and do this to myself:


That’s right. I wish you could really see how big that beer is. Watch out, wedding dress!

My mom and I had a really funny talk a few days ago about planning the shower. She is going through the same thing I am with all of this. Everyone expects you to know what to do and how to do it! She had never thrown a shower (And it’s been years since she even went to one) and I’m her oldest so she doesn’t have a lot of experience. And where the internet is vast…sometimes its so vast that it’s more confusing than helpful. One website says that you should send out invitations no EARLIER than a month before, others say that you should send out invitations no LATER than a month before and so she is basically just making this up as she goes. My mom is a master entertainer and, come on, she’s MY MOM so I’m not worried about it at all. I’m just excited to openly gush about my wedding with family and friends. In fact, I’m a little overwhelmed by all of the attention and the gushing that I’m supposed to do…

So yeah. I’ll take lots of pictures and tell you how it went! In the meantime, this is what’s happening:


That’s right.
