Bridal Shower

So my friend Amy came over on Saturday and we were planning on going shopping. She told me there was a Nordstrom’s in NYC (I totally didn’t believe her, but she said it just opened, so I was like “OK, if you say so”). But first, she said, “Let’s stop by your sister’s apartment so I can say hi and drop something off.”
I thought, Sure. Why not?

So we get to my sister’s…. and there is a roomful of my closest friends!!!! That’s right folks, my fabulous sister, and my amazing mother threw me a SURPRISE BRIDAL SHOWER!!! It freakin’ rocked. I was so not expecting it, and don’t laugh–but I teared up (tears of joy).
Okay, I know I sound SO ultra girlie right now that you probably all want to puke and stop reading this post, but I just want to brag about it for a sec. because it was sweet and wonderful of them to do this for me.
Surprises kick ASS.

Anyway, it was a total blast and I got all kinds of saucy/sexy/fun/adorable things. I won’t go into detail because, ahem, it’s personal, but it was so much fun! It was like when you’re little and you have your friends over for a tea party. We all sat around eating tea sandwiches and ensalata caprese, and cute little tarts from Silver Moon Bakery (no Levian cookies, *sigh* –jk!).

I highly recommend having a bridal shower. Because you get all kinds of shit you would never buy for yourself, and it’s not even your birthday. Just think–I MORE presents on my birthday in 2 months. God, my life is good.

I am very grateful. And not to make you all TOO jealous, but I’m going out of town for a few days for a mother/daughter spa trip. Are you seething yet?

By the time I get back I’m gonna glow so much you’ll need shades just to look at me! (did that make sense? You know–glowing from all the facials, spray-tans, and salt glows etc.)

Also, I bought the cutest bikini the other day. I wanted something fun that I can take on my honeymoon. OKay, I know it’s kind of tacky, but you love it? Right? I thought the cherries in the middle were too cute, and the little skirt, too. Hope Future Husband likes it too!

Be back soon…
