Dress Fitting & A Couple's Shower

Last weekend I had to be in Mandeville at 9:30 am for my bridesmaid's dress fitting. My sister's wedding is coming up soon! It's November 12th! We met at Southern Bridal & tried on our dresses. And oh my gosh! They are STUNNING! I am so excited! 

I realized I somehow picked the same style as my wedding dress! Haha. Except, you know... my wedding dress wan't blue & it had beadwork & stuff on it. But this one has the same neckline & a pretty champagne sash. I absolutely loved it & didn't want to take it off! It was too big. :) But they can take it in. The blue, though! The blue is GORGEOUS! It's more of a royal and not the dull kind of blue that i was picturing. I am so excited! Kelly & Jennifer looked gorgeous in their dresses also. The other bridesmaid, Tiffanie, lives in England, so my sister shipped the dress to her & she will get it altered there if need be. We all have the same fabric & color, but different styles. I love that!

After that, Michelle & I went to her house so i could put some meatballs in the crockpot for the shower that night. :) We also ate a quick lunch. Then we headed to her favorite mani/pedi place & I got a pedicure - her treat! So sweet! The movie Bridesmaids was playing, which was fun & appropriate!

I was exhausted. Too many late night rehearsals & other things going on - like the day before was my last day of work! Anyway, so we went back to her house & I got to take a long luxurious nap in her guest bed. That was the coziest bed I have ever gotten in. It was heavenly.

That night was the Couple's Shower in River Ridge, which is right outside of New Orleans. It was at Kelly's house, which was just beautiful. I loved it. I made meatballs & cookies for the shower & both were delicious!

Mom made mini ham & cheese croussaints & they were the hit of the party! 

I am not going to tell you how many Brad ate... it was a lot!

But the party went really well & it was fun, too! We had a great turnout!
