My Lovely Bridal Shower: Part 2

If you missed it, you can find Part 1 here.

Seriously, I am not sure how I remained so calm with everything going on. I decided that since I wasn’t hyperventilating or dizzy that I would go to the shower but would leave immediately if I had to. I called Ryan to give him the good news that I was on my way!

I knew I was late to my own shower but I thought to myself, “Who really comes right at 2pm anyways?” I figured by the time I got there only a few guests would be there. Ryan met me in the driveway and I asked “Are there a lot of people here?” I expected him to say “No” or “Just a few”. Instead he told me “Everyone is here.”

This was hanging at the bottom of the driveway. Loved it!

So my plan to get to my shower early, take pictures of how nicely everything was set up, help with any finishing touches, take pictures with my family, bridesmaids and guests and to greet my guests went out the window. How do you personally greet all your guests when they are already seated and waiting on you to show up? Very awkward.

Cute pic but you can see how tired and not well I was feeling ;(

I did try to snap a couple pictures real quick. The rest I stole from my bridesmaids and mom.

This cake should probably say "Soon to be Jessica & Ryan McCartney" or "The Future Jessica & Ryan McCartney" but I'll let it slide since it is us running :)

Beautiful centerpieces that my cousin/MOH/Ashley made. (She even let me take them home to use for the rehearsal dinner).

So perfect!
So perfect!

And here are adorable favors that were marshmallows (one of my favorite snacks) on a stick to use to make s’mores that were set up in the garage/food area. Besides one of our favorite pictures on it, the words underneath said

“Much like chocolate and marshmallows, when they are separate, Jess and Ryan are great…But when you put them together, they are perfect!”

Since we were late, I went and said hi to my bridesmaids, moms, grandmas and anyone else I could real quick. And I mean, like real quick! We were on a schedule and I was late (and starving) so Ashley made sure we were the first to eat. Plus she needed to steal Ryan away to work on some games that were coming up. Ashley and I never discussed games but she knows me well and follows all my Pinterest stuff to know exactly what I would want. I’ll share the games in a short part 3 post.

I didn’t get to snap a picture of all the food and desserts we had but my Mom did snap a picture of the chickens my step-dad cooked for the party. They were delish!

This is where things start to get blurry. Nerves, plus asthma attack, plus super shaky from asthma meds, plus I don’t even know! I think we played 2 games real quick and then started opening our gifts.

While I would love to share all the gifts our family and friends gave us, it would make one really long blog post so I am sharing just this one. It was a gift that my Mom said was for Ryan to open. He reached in the gift bag and pulled out a chef’s hat and apron. There is a special joke about the apron, that I won’t mention to keep the blog PG. Ryan showed the crowd and was a trooper and put on the chef’s hat for everyone.

TrooperI must have misunderstood my Mom when she said the gift was for Ryan. I sat back and was enjoying watching him open up the gift…until he started to open something that I thought was maybe silk boxers.

"Hmm what could this be?"
“Hmm what could this be?”

Kinda weird but I thought maybe it was a joke until I realized it was a little girly for boxers and realized IT WAS LINGERIE!!!! By lingerie, I mean sexy nightgown. A little different from my soccer shorts and old race shirts. The best part is, my little sister picked it out!

"That's enough, let's put that away"
“That’s enough, let’s put that away” “You are hilarious Mom”

We are beyond blessed with awesome friends and family who spoiled us for our wedding shower. We loved all of our gifts! But really, we loved just being able to have all of our friends and family together before the big day. I loved being able to look out and see all the people who love us so much.

The good news is Ryan was absolutely amazing and stole all the ladies hearts, like usual. And my cousin/MOH/Ashley threw me the most perfect and beautiful shower. It was 100% the shower that I wanted…minus that whole asthma attack part. I couldn’t have put on a better shower myself. Ashley really outdid herself and did it with a 2.5 year old and a 2 month old.

Her 2.5 year old is my ring bearer! From the day he was born I wanted him in my wedding.

JessandLukeAshley-Thank you so much for throwing us such an awesome bridal shower. I know it was a crazy day, but you were so awesome. I am very lucky to have you as my leading lady for my wedding.

Seriously, hands down the best person in the wold.
