Showering of Me

I have a love/hate relationship with surprises. On the one hand, I love them, but on the other, I can't stand being the only one who doesn't know, so I hate them! My bridal shower is going to be in VA, per my request since I also requested the bachelorette party be in DC and it's that same night. Since this required MOH Ryann and Bridesmaid Lela to fly in, and me to drive down from Philly, I also kind of had to know the date. So I know the date and I know the state. I've made requests for mimosas and fancy hats*, so I know those, too. I don't know time, actual location, menu, details or anything at ALL about the bachelorette party. Why am I telling you this? Because I've already had a couple people try to (accidentally) tell me other details or ask me about things. As much as I hate surprises, like I said, a part of me also loves them, so note to all - don't tell me any other details pleaaase! Although I keep telling MOH Cassie and MOH Ryann it's unfair that I don't get to see the invite, truth be told I guess I don't really want to. The teasing is the part that gets me, though. *pouty face* I want to see it! (no I don't) lol.

On another note, because the shower's in VA, I know a lot of people won't be able to come. My friends AND family are scattered all over the place and I know coming to the wedding is a big enough trip for some, let alone coming to a bridal shower (however, public transportation-wise it's probably easier than bumblef**k NJ). So friends, please know that if you weren't invited (but were invited to the wedding) it's because I didn't want to ask you to come all that way. Family, please know that you were invited, even though you do live far away, just on the off chance you could come. Please don't think I expect you to make a special trip just for little ole me. I'd rather you be at my wedding if you have to pick one!

And on yet another note - I just have to share that invite production has officially begun! I can only do a few each night, so it's slow going, but I hope to have at least enough to give FH when he's here next week (for Bride-to-Be/Bridesmaid Amanda's wedding!!) to take back for those being invited in the UK. 23 down, 61 to go...


*another blog, another day...


  1. All I know is that I was asked to rent a live tiger for your bachelorette party...a green tiger is really hard to find...

  2. hm. i thought it was supposed to be a liger. since it's pretty much my favorite animal.

  3. I am so excited for your bachelorette party in DC -- and I will actually know the bride this time. Don't worry I won't ruin the surprise because I know nothing.

  4. is that picture some sort of nonchalant hint that you want everyone to sign a stuffed dog at your shindig?
