This past weekend Joey and I had our last wedding shower in Macon County (where he is from). Joey's Aunts and Cousins hosted the shower and set it all up so pretty. We had an Easter theme-which was pretty similar to our wedding colors-blue and yellow. It was very cute:)
The weather was perfect, nearly 50 guests came and went, lots of very nice gifts and overall a wonderful time with our friends and family.
I think one of my favorite gifts of the day was from Aunt Ruth & Uncle Bill, a 7-piece Pampered Chef cookware set!!! I screamed and nearly cried. It was a moment. My other favorite of the day was a beautiful quilt, hand made by Mama Ovie (Joey's 90 year old grandmother)...again cried. It was wonderful and we have so many nice items:)
The past few weekends have been so great, being able to spend it with my mom and very close friends...it has made me realize how truly blessed Joey and I are. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful life and we are very thankful.
We are planning on having one more shower in Murfreesboro after the wedding-just so more of our friends and family can attend a shower. April and May is booked solid the rest of the weekends and June will obviously be hectic, so right now we're planning on July 11th.
