Our First Shower!! (Lots-o-Pics!)

Beau & I had our first wedding shower this Saturday! This particular shower was a couple's shower for our family. We ate yummy barbecue, consumed a few too many adult beverages, received great gifts to help us begin our lives together and all in all, had a fabulous time with our closest friends and family!

I'll start with the small details:

Hostess Gifts
Engagement Photo Album
Gift Tracker Book

These made me SO happy! So cute!
Me & my handsome groom! <3>
Julie, Kristen, Me & Ash
The Brights: Ashley & Todd
Nancy (hostess), me & Beau's Uncle Joe

Me & Julie (maid of honor!)
Gift time!
((yes...those are wrenches..or something like that)

It took a little teamwork...
Mom bought us our knife set!
It's bad luck to accept a knife for free so we gave her 2 pennies!
Bottle of wine in an axis skin wine carrier.
Beau was in heaven with that!

The days are just-a flyin' by! I feel like it took FOREVER for this first shower to get here and now it's over!! So bitter sweet! I am absolutely LOVING planning our wedding....every.single.bit. Although I can't wait for 195 days to pass so I can be Mrs. Howard, I don't know what I'm going to do when it's all over with? I guess being a wife will suffice! :)
