So, who else is a huge fan of Twin Peaks? We had just watched the entire series when we got engaged, so the hashtag was born of a mild Coop obsession. Bear with us.
This weekend we had our bridal shower! I made Michael come because it’s the 21st century, damn it! Unfortunately, we have bi-coastal families, so the turnout wasn’t record-breaking, but we got some amazing, thoughtful gifts and I hugged so many Portuguese woman that I smelled of their perfume all day. I was blown away with the amount of love and support I received.
My sister-in-law-to-be, Erica threw the bash and she knocked it out of the park. She really took my one direction (all gold everything) to heart! I mean, the woman hand-made gold foil phrase art for me! She’s a saint.
My Maid of Honor/best friend Sarah introduced me to an amazing drink called the Statesman Sour. I’m not sure that we followed the traditional recipe exactly, but it’s Elderflower liqueur, white whiskey, lime, and bitters. Amazing. We even bought special cocktail glasses from Anthropologie for the occasion!
The food was…mildly out of control. I mean, look at this watermelon situation.
My mother bought a cake that could have easily fed 80 people. It was delicious, but I can’t give the stuff away! I brought so much food home from this thing that the bag broke and I spilled pasta and cantaloupe all over the driveway.
One of the best things that happened at the shower was that his mother majorly trolled us. We make fun of her constantly for her using inspirational phrases…ad nauseum. She bought us a wedding album that…was really her taste.
I’ll use it, but I won’t like it!
I’m so humbled by the amount of love we received this weekend. Love our family!
