It’s hard to believe that Allie’s wedding is two months from today! Wow! There is still a lot to be done, but there is a lot done, too…whew. Her and her groom are enjoying the ride and keeping a great perspective about all of the details. I love that. I love them.
We had a houseful here the past few days. My sweet sister gave her a bridal shower, family style. It was a time for the women on our side of the family to enjoy this time with Allie, and to celebrate with her! We had such a nice time. First there was some shopping. You know, girl time. Da best!
In the past few times together, I’ve learned that it’s smart to follow this girl around go where she goes. She has such a good eye.I love my sis!

( The Bride to Be had Mac n Cheese–the signature dish at this restaurant. It’s unforgettable! )
( The Groom wrote out the thing he loves about his future Bride.
They were added to tags and wrapped around mini flower vases )
( Dessert was pretty much the entire chocolate torte. But the Whiskey and Creme Bread Pudding looked incredible too. It was not a night to be pinching calories! )

( Cousin and Aunt )
We showered her with all sorts of vintage china place settings. After she opened the gift, we wrote the name of the Aunt, Cousin, Mom, Grandma on the bottom of the china. Now she knows who gave what. Won’t it be FUN to set her table? She has always wanted a mix and match style of china patterns, and now she has it. All from her family.

Such a great evening and great weekend!
