Cincinnati Bridal Shower

February 27, 2011

What a whirlwind weekend.  We flew to Cincinnati to take care of some wedding errands.  Aside from those (which may have to wait, since my camera battery died and most of the pictures are on my mom’s camera, BLOGGING 101, DUH!), I also attended my BRIDAL SHOWER!

My Maid of Honor, Kathleen, threw a fabulous shower at my friend, Sarah’s, mom’s house.  Sixteen people came in from all over the country!  First we started with food and drinks.  The party favors were these adorable wine glasses.


Here are some people shots:

6.  My mom, Anna Marie, Marie, Grandmother, Brooke

After eating, we started with the games.  First was to name the TV couples.  I actually won this game (helps when you can name all three couples of “Modern Family”), but I wasn’t allowed to get prizes!  Sad smile  The second game was a word game: let’s see who can make the most words of the letters of Anne’s new name.  I can’t see what they all are, but let’s just say that my new name has an abundance of n’s, t’s, r’s, and e’s.  The funniest word was “threaten”.  Matt’s sister Amber won with 65+ words!  She’s so smart!

Finally it was time to open presents.  However, there was a hitch in order to open presents!  I had to guess Matt’s answer to a personal question, before I could open each gift.  I should have had this videotaped!  If you know Matt, you’d totally understand why doing impressions of Matt is so funny.  He’s very unassuming, but here’s how the game started:


What is Matt’s favorite vegetable?


Ummm . . . peas?  carrots?  french fries?  sweet potato fries?

His answer: ketchup (AKA ketchtable)

And that’s how it started!

Present pictures (including cameos by Jen, awesome bridesmaid who flew in from Minneapolis!):


Of course, my matron of honor, Amy’s, favorite part of the opening presents was making my bow bouquet.


What a great time!  Thanks to Kathleen, Sarah, her mom, and all of my friends and family who were able to make it!  I can’t believe that this is the beginning of MY wedding season!

        Someone took one with me in it in the kitchen. Not sure how, though. And yeah, I should have turned that sucker on myself a few times, creeper style. =)
