My heart was there....


Let the wedding festivities begin!

Yesterday was my FDIL's bridal shower. These are the times that it hurts so damn bad, to be away from family! We had hoped to link up through a video chat so I could there for the event. As hard as my Mom and other shower guests tried we just couldn't get linked up... and I'd even done my makeup! I'm afraid I took it out on my DH, who puts up my moods no matter how grumpy I am... bless his heart.
Thanks to the internet, who didn't cooperate last night, I woke up to pictures of the event in my imail box (Thanks, Gail).

Here are a couple shots of the fun they had...



I hear the gift opening went on for a long, long time! Someone got the "kids" this sign... we've always had one that said the same thing hanging on our front porch. They'll have so much fun putting all these special gifts away in the brand-new house they just bought this week. I'm so excited for them!



Sarah and the TP brides! Apparently teams competed by making dresses for their "bride" followed by a fashion show... I so coulda won this one! I rock at shower games! :) And I needed a new lip-gloss!

Oh, I know. It's such a bummer to live far away from family,... especially during these special occasions. I'm sorry you weren't able to connect. I do however hope you put your make-up to good use and went out to dinner or something fun. Just thinking of you and wanted to stop by and say hi.
