This past weekend I had my first shower! Ryan’s aunt’s and a friend of his mom’s threw the shower for me back in Ryan’s hometown of Clarks. There were a lot of ladies that I didn’t know very well but it was so much fun. It was a Pampered Chef shower so I had to help the Pampered Chef host, Kristi Twiss, cook a little. We made a grilled chicken salad and it was so good–we even made the salad dressing! I learned a lot of good cooking tips while we cooked. I got to pick out some really great items for our kitchen and I can’t wait to use them!
Ryan and I have been thinking about getting a calligrapher to address our envelopes for the invitations. We have done a little shopping around and decided that we just couldn’t fit it into our budget. We then messed around with the settings on our computer and printed a sample envelope that looked really great! So, our task for this weekend is to get a good share of the envelopes addressed. I’m thinking I’ll let Ryan handle that and I’ll write “thank yous” for my shower.
This week I met with our flower lady at Hyvee, Pam, to go over some changes that I had made to the colors and such since we had met last. She is the sweetest lady to work with and has been so great! Since we aren’t doing the branch centerpieces anymore, I asked Pam to do more floral centerpieces; and it is still a really reasonable price which is so nice. I know she will make our flowers look so pretty!
That’s about all we’ve been up to for the wedding. The big day is getting closer and it’s so fun to see our plans coming together so nicely!
