Tori came in this weekend for her “Texas” Bridal Shower. While she was here, she also had her first dress fitting. This whole wedding thing doesn’t seem real. Do I really have a daughter getting married in 38 days? Do we really have a wedding taking place in 38 days, and in the meantime I’ll host Thanksgiving, decorate for Christmas, shop for all of our Christmas gifts (because I haven’t even started), homeschool Tristyn and make sure I don’t have an emotional breakdown before Jan. 1?
Yes. I . do. 🙂
Okay, back to the shower….Tori’s bridesmaids threw her a precious shower. I’ve been going to showers for years and have thrown my fair share of showers for friends, but I never realized how much of a blessing it is for someone to throw your daughter and her sweet guy a shower. I ‘ve been blown away by people who have taken time out of their busy schedules to show up and love on my girl. It has meant the world to me for friends and family who have supported them, loved on them and those who jumped in to help us with the wedding. It has been a blessing by all the sweet messages I’ve received from friends who are as excited to share their special day as we are.
Tori wore the most adorable outfit ever to the shower. She knew this would be a “fun” shower so she wanted to dress like it. I’m in LOVE with her shoes!! Chad bought her the “wifey” shirt for her birthday.
The shower was a wonderful. Tori felt so loved by everyone there.
When you walked in, instead of signing a guestbook, you were asked to write your name on a rock and a word of encouragement to Tori and Chad. They will be able to keep the rocks and put them in a vase or place them around their house. I loved seeing what everyone wrote.
It was a joy seeing her friends show up. She has been friends with most of these girls since elementary and middle school.
The biggest hit was the photo booth. I think we stood there for an hour just taking pictures.
(Tori and her bridesmaids, except for Erin, who was still at school )
A huge thank you to all of our friends and family for making this day special.
Also, if you think about it, please pray for our family and Chad’s family this month. We have so much to do with the holidays and the wedding and also for Tori as she’s still in school.
