wanna hear about my last shower?

today marked the official start of the wedding festivities with my bridal shower, we are t-minus seventy six days away till the big day. it was simple, perfect, delicious, and did i mention perfect? a super huge thank you to one of my bridesmaids kira, who put the whole thing on; also many other thanks to everyone else who pitched in so that it could go off without a hitch.
top: buckle
leggings: american eagle
shoes: target flats
i am linking up with the fabulous mandy over at harper's happenings for her fun stepping out staurday!

before the fun really got going we all dug into a fantastic brunch that kira and i came up with. mini pancake stacks (inspiration from pinterest), egg frittatas, a yogurt bar, doughnut holes in little glassine bags, fresh fruit, and off course mimosas with mango orange juice. it was so delicious!
the games were hilarious; some i had never heard of. we played one where i had to guess the answer to a set of questions tim answered earlier that morning and if i got it wrong i had to put a huge piece of gum in my mouth. it was not a fair fight-tim totally answered some questions wrong...like where we had our first kiss, but since my answer didn't match in the gum went. in the end i had 6 of the 10 pieces in my mouth, watermelon flavor to boot; my teeth hurt and i was about to gag. then their was the game where i had to guide a blindfolded amanda who happened to have a broom between her legs into the toilet paper roll i had between mine, wow the things you hope you never have to say to a girlfriend.
i got some amazing new gifts for our home including a rice cooker, a new set for our master bath, and the adorable 'rohr' stuff from kira-i can't wait to wear on the big day. i am so happy that everyone who came could make it, it really was perfect and everything i could ask for.
