Sorry its taken me so long to get this post up, been busy catching up on sleep, running, wedding ordeals, oh and work! Along with all this there was a fabulous shower in my honor. Last week I kept you up to date on Sweet Cake Part 1 and Sweet Cake Part 2 (which you can find in Recent Posts) and I told you I’d show you my finished cake. Well I must say it looked awesome! Not only did it look fantastic, it tasted pretty great too. The highlight of the shower was seeing everyone. I saw my family and old friends. When I say old I mean my high school friends. Gee its been 4 years since I graduated from Sequoyah..ek thats a long time! Anyway I saw my mom’s side of family and my dad’s. The shower was so much fun, everyone had a great time. The only sad thing was I didn’t take enough pictures! I only took some of my cake and the little girls. I am terrible with things like that. I get so caught up and forget to capture the moments. But Anne-Marie who hosted the grand shower took all the photos. She is a great hostess!
Here is the table centerpiece (just kidding). The cake turned out like I said awesome! I love it. It blended right in, but also stood out. The flower was the talk of the cake, no one could believe I made that. But, what can I say? Its my passion. Here is a close up on that gorgeous flower!
I did take some photos of the presents. Now, everyone showed up who was invited. That means everyone brought gifts. 20 ladies, tons of gifts. Nothing else to say. I did get great gifts! A lot from our registry and some personal gifts that I love too. I’ll show you some the presents, along with the huge pile that still sits in my living room.
Thats it in a tight pile, this is the hot mess that night.
Oh yeah, its pretty great.
This might be my favorite thing. Anne-Marie created this beautiful collage of Zach and I (she even snuck in one of my cakes hehe) and had everyone write what marriage meant to them in one word, its so beautiful and I absolutely adore it.
All in all I had a great time. I got to see my mom, family, and friends. What else could I ask for? The Lord has blessed me with a lot of great people who care for me and my happiness. I am truly blessed.
