Bridal Shower

Hi ladies.  Ugh. 


It's been quite the weekend/week so far!! 

So Taa's bridal shower didn't go according to plan so much.  Nope.  Here's how the morning went down.  Actually, back that up, the night before ------

Tanner and I finished the sign while watching 24, which turned out very good considering we stopped every couple minutes to watch Jack Bauer kick some tail...

We got done around midnight and I started gathering everything I wanted to decorate with and putting it in the dining room.  I basically stripped all my fall decorations in the house haha.  It was great!  But the house was bare for a few hours. 

So the morning came and we loaded everything up in the car...I had willow branches poking me in the head...and I'm really surprised I didn't jab an eyeball out haha. 

I somehow managed to drop one of my felt flowers in Gus and Lucy's water bowl...but just went ahead and stuck it in with the others anyway.....shhh

So I'm running late -- supposed to be there RIGHT at 9 when they opened up the building for us, because we would need every. single. minute. to get ready and decorated by 11.  I arrive at 9:05 and guess what?  No man to let us in.  You see, the first day of hunting season was on Saturday...and I feel like hunting may have been somewhat more important to Mr. Man.  So 9:45 rolls around and he's still not there.  10:00....we're getting REALLY nervous.  I have no fingernails left.  I also left about 10 voicemails on his phone.  Each one increasingly more agitated than the last....

We tried to Macguyver our way into the building, but that didn't work...and so just as we were about to give up and find another last minute (LITERALLY LAST MINUTE) venue, Mr. Man's assistant buddy shows up.  AT 10:30. 


Luckily, 3 or 4 girls were there to help me, and I'm so bummed because the decorations didn't go at all as planned.......and I didn't have enough time to fix it.  But anyways....the bright side was that Taalyr still had a ton of fun, and she had over 30 people there!

We also found that once inside, the firemen had left their practice dummy out.  We had to move him and can I just tell you that 170 pounds not including the suit and boots is REALLY HEAVY.  It took at least 3 of us to move him.  So we decided to use him in the photobooth, and "Jerry" was the highlight of all those photos :)  So here are some pictures from our ran together, decorated in 30 minutes, beautiful, created with love shower.  Enjoy!!
