wedding shower pics..

ness and tiff
OK, so here are some of the shower pictures.    If you really want to see more you can click on anyone and they will take you to my flickr page and you can see them all there, plus about 6000 more pictures! LOL!!  (not kidding...)  First pic is of our adorable bride to be Vanessa and of last years bride, Tiffany.  They are both lovely.  And I think my whole family is blessed to have them be part of us!
We had the shower at Vanessas mothers restaurant (which is now closed, but they still own the building and everything is there. )  Its the perfect place to have a party! above is Nessa, Bethany and Jennifer.
Here are all my girls plus vanessas beautiful cousin Lindsey.   We had a gorgeous day for her shower.
Oh, here is the panty parfait!  the girls put this together for her.. Theres a little poem with matching undies to go with each verse.  its quite cute.
Here are some pics of Vanessa opening some of the gifts that i made her.  She Loves Burlap!  so Ive been playing with burlap all week making some special things for her.
I loved how the pillows turned out.. "mr Right" and Mrs Always Right!!"  LOL!

I think she liked them!  She got lots of great stuff and a lot of gift cards which is really what they mostly wanted.

I think there were about 50 guests and there was tons of food,  beef on wic, cheesy potatos, pasta salad, taco salad, rueben dip, rye bread bowl, chicken wing dip.. cut up veggies,  pies, and cupcakes.. wine, pop, ice tea and pink lemonaid.  I might have left something out...    I made three apple pies and brought a whole one back home with me...   its gonna get me in trouble! 
my friend and I made carmel apples for the shower favors...   BAD idea.. wont ever do that again.  they just didnt turn out very well.   but they looked cute on the tables! lol

so thats about that.  
so now, summer is winding down.. I had to work today, tomorrow and wednesday then I'm off for five days.  Wish I was going somewhere fun.  but I'll be mostly home.  I do plan on the beach for thursday, but otherwise, I have a big teddybear order and I need the money for the wedding... so I shall be working on that order all weekend. 
I cant wait for everyone to get back to blogging and commenting... Its way too quiet out here!
toodles for now!

Looks like a fun shower. I love the sunflower theme. The apples look good. I'm sure you poured your heart and soul into everything.
Yes, where is everyone. It has been a little quiet on here.
Hope you get to the beach.
