Our First Shower

This past weekend, my wonderful in-laws threw Dr. Groomy and I our first shower!  It was a Couples’ Shower, held for family and friends from Dr. Groomy’s side of the family.  We had a fabulous time and were so thankful to spend time with everyone.  I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking today…

The shower was held at a local pizza place that had a beautiful new enclosed patio.

My mother-in-law and aunt-in-law (her name is S-H-A-R-I Shari!  Haha!) did most of the organizing for this shower, with the help of my father-in-law.
The decor matched our wedding colors!

And pizza! 

And of course, cake. You guys know what a cake-freak I am.  Isn’t this one beautiful?  Funny side story…my mother-in-law ordered the cake to be decorated just in ivory, so it would mix more with the color scheme she had going for the shower.  When she picked up the cake, she saw this…

Hmm.  Not really sure where the purple and green factored in, but it was a lovely cake nonetheless!  It was a cheesecake cake, so it had white cake, a layer of raspberry filling and cheesecake on the bottom.  YUM!

And of course, we had to practice cutting the cake. 
Notice whose hand is on the knife?!

My favorite part of the cake was the beautiful sugar flowers. 
Of course, I totally scarfed those and then had a purple tongue the whole night, but it was worth it—yum!

This is Uncle Rick, enjoying some of the delicious food.  He and I have a long-standing joke that he is going to have me in tears from laughter at church during our wedding ceremony.  We’ll see, we’ll see!

After some fabulous food and drink, we opened our gifts.  I think you all know what that looks like, but here’s a few pics:

And here I am with the first part of my rehearsal dinner bouquet! 
(I plan to add to it at my other showers)

We had a wonderful time and we are so thankful!  I know some of Dr. Groomy’s relatives read the blog, so if you’re reading (Hi, Jill!), thank you so much!  And thank you so much to our wonderful hosts!

Did you have a bridal shower?  Tell me about it!
