My Remie-Girl is getting MARRIED in a month!! Eeeeee, we’re all so excited!!!!
Me and the other 2 ladies in the wedding party, Amber and Erin, got together and planned a sweet little wedding shower for our Lovely Bride-To-Be so she could be showered in gifts and have her family and friends come and share some well wishes and show her some lovin’!
We held the shower at Amber’s, which I’m so glad Amber offered to host the shower there because it was such a perfect space! She has such a beautiful home and she did a great job with all the decorations and with making her house the most comfortable and cozy place for visitors to relax. Loved it!! (Thanks Amber!! Really appreciated it!)
We had tons of food as everyone pitched in with bringing a dish or two! We had this amazing spiked punch that Melanie brought, we had 7 layer dip from Remie’s boss Kelly, Mrs. Tammy brought finger sandwiches, Erin’s homemade salsa and hummus, and also Remie’s mother Sach made pasta salad, tiny coffee cakes, and this corn dip that I NEED to get the recipe for (I could have eaten the entire bowl by myself)! I also I made my artichoke casserole dish that everyone seems to love and I brought my chocolate covered strawberries! Everything was delicious!
…and LOOK AT HER CAKE!
Remie was so surprised! I tried to capture her expression when she first spotted the cake, it was priceless!
Erin created this piece of art just by looking at the place setters Remie had picked out for the wedding! Little tiny cards! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?! Girls got talent! Wowza!.
So everyone arrived on time and Remie was the perfect little bride-to-be! She greeted and smiled and mingled, you couldn’t even tell that she might have been nervous! She was a natural!
People chowed down and drank and chatted it up, with most of us hovering over the punch bowl. It was fun to see some of remie’s friends that I hadn’t seen in quite some time and also meet some new people I’d never met. All of her friends and family are such sweet people!
Having 3 bridesmaids that have never held a wedding shower before I was so grateful when Remie’s boss Kelly nudged me at one point and said “Presents?” I should have gotten the cue when all the girls started sitting in the chairs in a big circle but I was a little pre-occupied with filling the second batch of punch (everyone emptied that huge bowl in less than 20 minutes)!
WooHoo! Present time!
Erin scribbled down the gifts and who gave what to who, Amber passed the gifts to Remie and took the wrapping, and I was in charge of pictures! It was a great time! I especially enjoyed seeing Remie’s reactions to each gift! If she got an ok gift, you couldn’t tell because she played it all off like a pro!
This next part (down below) was one of my favorite moments of the shower!
Remie was opening one of the last gifts which happened to be a present from her mother when all the sudden you hear her saying,
“UUUHHHH… What is this…?
oooooh my GAAAWWWD!! MOOOOOOOOOM!!
THIS IS EMBARASSING!
MOOOOOM!! YOU”RE NOT SUPPOSE TO GET ME THIS!!
::more giggles and laughter from the entire room!::
It was so perfect, I absolutely loved her reaction! If only I had video taped it!
And here is, the beautiful Ms. Remie with her large mound of gifts and goodies!
She stocked up quite well! She got Ninjas, Crock-Pots, fire pits, pictures frames, a huge basket full of every kitchen goodie you could ever think of, and tons and tons of other amazing, useful things!!
The shower had a great turn out and I couldn’t have been happier!
I’m so glad I had Amber and Erin there with me to pull this entire shower together, as they both did such a wonderful job, and without them it never would have happened! I can’t wait for the wedding!
And, at the end of the day, all the hard work and running around and planning was worth it when you get a message like this!
Here are a few cute pictures from after the party was over…
Mr. Cameron, enjoying some cake alone outside, being adorable and shy when I tried to snap a picture of him. (We had to get his daddy to take the last photo, he kept hiding behind his arm when I tried. hehe! So cute!)
And I was trying to sneak a picture of Amber having a moment with all of her kiddies, but then I just got off my booty and had them all look at me.
Love this family! They’re all so awesome.
