Bridal Shower for College Sister

Back in June I went by myself for 48 hours to my hometown.  My reasons for going were twofold.  First, to go to a bridal shower for College Sister.  And second, to meet my soon to be College-BIL! Caveat, he is not in college anymore, but what am I supposed to call these two now? I absolutely cannot say how much Chicago Sister and I love the new BIL!  He fits in perfectly with our family and is TONS of fun.  He even took us out for a night on the town, but you will have to wait to see those pictures.

The shower was given by my mom's two best friends.  Chicago Sister and I were supposed to help, but they didn't really give us that much to do.  We provided some pastries and mimosas.  I think because they remember us as squirrely teenagers, they were afraid to give us too much responsibilty. This was fine by us though because back home we throw plenty of big parties and have to do ALL the work (shhhh..don't tell anyone back home about this). There are some advantages to working with people who knew you as kids!  We had such a nice time at the beautiful shower. Check out some of this lovely food and decor.

Look at these gorgeous sugar cookies!  I got to bring home a few of these for the PKs.

Opening TONS of gifts:

Look Baby Cousin showed up halfway through.  Grandad got her up from a nap, put on her dress and bloomers and dropped her off to join the grown up ladies.

The Sisters. In one month we will all be old married considerably older than the other two!
