"If you want a thing well done, do it yourself."

This past Sautrday my best friend Ashley hosted a bridal shower for me. She and her Mom planned the entire thing without me knowing any of the details. I was so happy when I came in and saw the room (it was held at a cute, local cafe).. They did an awesome job and I feel like I cannot thank them enough. :)
 
Here are the pictures from the day..
 
Would you believe me if I told you that Tracy (Ashley's Mom) made these?? 'Cause she did! Amazing..


 
The other cake (store bought).
 
Our wedding colors are pink and orange so that was the theme for the shower. :)
 
 
 The flowers were SO pretty.. I brought some home with me. :)

Ashley got me this tiara/veil to wear for the shower. Lauren had to test it out for me. ;)

Before I end this post, I would just like to say thank you again to Ashley and Tracy. I love you both and now it is time for Ashley and Randall to get married so I can return the favor! :)

Thanks for coming by my blog everyone, and come back tomorrow to find out why I find  that picture of me opening the waffle maker to be oh so humorous. ;)
