A Weekend of Firsts.

Oh man what a weekend of firsts it was indeed. And I can't believe I made it through in one piece, haha.

Friday: Oh how I love short Fridays. Got to leave work early and came home to relax for a quick bit before heading to my Aunt's house to set up for my cousin, Christina's bridal shower. Pretty much spent the night up there doing flowers and moving furniture. Eventually the males (Matt included) came over as well and we all had dinner (Mexican food again and with NO cheese, man I'm good). Basically it was a fun time and we came home earlyish so I could rest up for Saturday.

Saturday: Shower day! And pretty much my day 'o firsts. My first time cutting a mango, not cutting myself while grating, putting flower arrangements together, making sangria (thanks Katie!it was totally a hit)and hosting a bridal shower! Pretty much my whole day was shower related until the day finally started and I'd say it was a pretty great shower.

I think the setup turned out pretty amazing.

and man was that food delicious.

and the other table enjoying lunch as well.

Mothers of the brides :)

I was helping Christina unwrap and took notes of who gave her what,
and apparently it was funny.

Christina and her mom checking out the cake.

oh man what a delicious cake.

Basically everyone had a great time playing some games, laughing, eating lots, and just spending lots of fun time together.

After cleaning up after the shower Matt and I headed to some friends house for a BBQ then over to Michaela's parent's house for some football. By the time I got home I was ready to pass out for sure. But it was completely worth it.

Sunday: Woke up early to go with my mom, Christina, her mom and some of her friends to Glen Ivy Spa. It was quite the relaxing day, going from pool to pool and the mud bath and the sauna and yeah it's reasonable to say I was pretty relaxed and tan by the end of the day. It was definitely the first time I made it through the day there totally relaxed and totally happy. After the spa we all headed out to dinner to celebrate Christina and her bacheloretteness.

Eventually I made it home to Matt and we celebrated a Monday without work with some wine and Wii per usual, twas of fun and loveliness.

Monday: Oh how I love holidays. I spent the day sleeping in, getting refitted for my bridesmaid dress, going to happy hour, watching some football and all around being lazy and awesome.

And how was your long weekend? Have any firsts?

happy tuesday!

Sounds like it all went well, including the games! It also sounds like you might need another weekend if you keep packing the activities in like this! lol

The shower looks like it was a hit, nicely done!

And power to you for being cheese-free. You have my utmost respect (even though you kinda did already). :)
