Wedding Shower for Leslie!

Yesterday I hosted a bridal shower for Leslie for our family and friends to celebrate her upcoming wedding to Stephen, which is TWO months from today! wow! (yesterday also marked 3 months from my due date – hope Reed stays put and doesn’t try to make an appearance before the wedding!)!

I’m not super crafty so there wasn’t a lot of fanfare (and maybe because I’m 27 weeks pregnant, too!) but I did make these tissue pom-poms that I thought turned out pretty good!

My mom helped with some of the food and she sent my sister  early to bring it and help me and she and Ava posed for the camera!IMG_2803

This is a picture of our spread:
IMG_2819 We had fruit kabobs, a chile pepper dip, chicken nuggets from CFA, chicken salad sandwiches (my mom’s recipes is INCREDIBLE!), and yummy cupcakes! We also had strawberry slush punch – the best punch EVER! It’s a family favorite and is always a big hit!

Me with the beautiful bride!!!IMG_2823 (I rolled my hair not even an hour before and sadly it looked like this by picture time. Crazy heat!)

A certain little lady was excited about this for a few days. In fact, Ava kept calling this Leslie’s “birthday” party. She’s a mess. She also had her eyes on the cupcakes from the minute the came in the door. There wasn’t a happier girl than her at this time.IMG_2828 IMG_2827 And there’s also not a girl happier than me because I still have a couple left and I’m going to eat one later tonight! yum!

I can’t believe the wedding is so close!  I was going to be a bridesmaid but seeing how I will be 36 weeks pregnant, it seemed like a better idea for me to sit out. Ava is the flower girl though and just being there is the most important thing!

I also think it’s so funny that one year ago from the day of the shower was the first day Stephen and Leslie communicated! I posted about Stephen here and then the next day I emailed Leslie to let her know she’d hear from Stephen and he emailed her later that day! :)

I cannot wait to see these two get married!!!
