My sister's Bridal Shower

I wanted to share a special shower we had for my sister a couple of weekends back. My sister is getting married in August and I am the old lady that gets to stand next to her. Yes, I am the matron of honor (of which my personal opinion is that maid of honor sounds much better) and am so excited for my sister to start this next phase of life. My sister is one beautiful woman who is much more in shape than I am and has always been better at basketball (read: freshman starter on varsity vs. bench warming senior). She and I have been pretty different from out of the womb, but we have always loved each other and share that bond that sisters do. We have so many memories together doing silly things from singing Mmmmbop (I know you just sung that in your head!) to practicing free throws together to watching my children be born. I blessed to have her in my life and I am truly thankful to have a sister like her!

So, I went to go look for all the pictures that I had take from the shower and I must have deleted them before I got them to my computer. I am SOOOO sad. I luckily have 2 pictures left, but not the same. I was going to show you them all, but thanks to Instagram you can see at least a couple. My parents own a restaurant called Avalon that does catering, so that makes it easy when you are planning food! They are a go to.

We also had a cake made with their initials on it and had a fun time. I wish I had more of pictures  :(

I hope above all that my sister knows that she is special, loved and I am looking forward to seeing her and Kevin begin this new phase of life together. Love you both!

Also, some of you had told me that you hadn't been able to post comments. I went in and changed some of my settings and think it should work now. Please let me know if it doesn't!!


  1. It was so much fun to celebrate Missy!

  2. This is Elaine by the way, it would only let me do it as anonymous...:-)


I love to hear from you!
