This weekend was a shower extravaganza! On Friday night, we hosted a grill out at our apartment, and had a "date night" themed shower for Jenny and Drew's upcoming marriage. :) We asked guests to put together gifts they could use on their date nights during marriage. They received so many thoughtful gifts and are pretty much set for at least 10-15 date nights! On Saturday, I went to my sister-in-law's baby shower and celebrated my little niece's soon-to-come debut! During the shower, she had us decorate onesies for the baby. They all turned out so cute. :)

And then, finally, on Sunday, Anica and I threw a lingerie shower for Jenny! We had a super classy shower in Rome, GA. We baked tons of yummy cookies and had coffee and milk. AND the location was to die for! I'll be sharing pictures later today or tomorrow. :)

Snapshot of the Week: Glass cups and mugs from the shower. I finally had an excuse to buy paper straws!

  1. Sounds like you had quiet an eventful weekend!
    Oh, and I did that SAME thing with the paper straws for my sister's baby shower...I bought too many so we could drink lemonade out of them this summer ;)

    I love that having an excuse to buy paper straws is such a big deal, but I totally know what you mean. It's that novelty item that you walk by every time and think "one day". Well, today's the day!! So much fun.

    I also love hosting parties.

    Oh, and your Red Robin comment is something that would work awesome in a game of two truths and a lie. (What can I say, I like icebreaker games...)
