Scrub a dub-dub - Shower Time!!

It's been a while. 

I know. 

Shame on me. 

Baddddd blogging bride-to-be. 

I've got a millions things going on for the wedding - we are 104 days until the wedding...CRAZY!!!

I had begged, pleaded, demanded that the shower be during the summer.  I knew I would not be able to handle all that extra cleaning, writing, etc during the school year.  There was a week left of school and the bridesmaids commmmmpletely surprised me. 

Mr. ST's parents had been asking to go to dinner at various restuarants in the area to find a place for the rehearsal dinner.  The first place we went to is a favorite bar/restuarant of ours - Calloways.  It's great: there is a bar, a miniature golf and driving range, arcade place and some small rides for kids, plus a go cart track.  Needless to say, the STs and friends hang out there all the time. 

We walked in and I was yelling at Mr. ST for not following the directions of the host,  when I turned left and VOILA! SURPRISE!

Mr. ST is holding our niece, his mom is in the pink/orange, his dad in the yellow and there is me shleping in all the bags for Gabby.... NO CLUE.  lol

Yup, silly face.  I honestly had no idea.  Don't get me wrong, I TRIED to figure it out, but I had no clue. 

You can see the beautiful shell corsage that my mom made for me.  It has is beautiful and I want to put it in a shadow box with the invitation.

Our cake - not your typical shower cake - so it was perfect for us!  The flip flops on the cake are magnets on our fridge now! :-)

It was such an overwhelming day.  I'll recap all the gifts and the bow hat and bouquet.  Those were some SPECIAL bow items.  How was your shower?  Where you surprised?

What an adorable cake! And how fun that they were able to surprise you with a shower.

I would have loved to have had mine be a surprise, except with me needing to fly cross country for it, that made it a bit difficult.
