Bridal Shower

I had my bridal shower this past Saturday, and it was really nice and I enjoyed it a lot. It did feel a bit awkward open gift from people with all eyes on me and dead silence...I think I make a better hostess than the center of attention. I think everyone had a nice time, but there was some awkward moments. I never know if I am responding the right way to a gift or if I am taking to long opening a package or didn't spend as much time on another gift. Ahh there is just too many things to think about. I will be having another shower with mostly Justin's side of the family so maybe that one will be less awkward. I want people to be chatting while I open gift and not just stareing at me...but maybe that is how it is supposed to go...? Anyway I do have some pictures to share.

Today, I woke up with a terrible allergic reaction on my lips they were swollen and a red rash was on them too, and my throat felt tight and it was hard to swollow. I call the Dr. immediately and I got an appointment, So I had to take off work. OH well I have sick days I might as well use. I am going to see an allergist because I have no idea what I am allergic too, if it was food or a face product like lipbalm I just want to have this stop happening to me. I took byenadrl so now I am getting sleepy, ugh. Maybe I will go take a nap.

But here are some pictures before I forget.

I had fun at my shower but It was sad many people left early so I didn't get to take a picture with them, and they didn't sign my shower memory book that Michele bought and I thought was a really cute idea. I am looking forward to Memorial Day weekend with a part for Christian's Graduation (Justin's brother) and a Birthday party for Gretchen (Justin's cousin) and another family bridal shower for me! Man it is going to be one fun get together!!

I weighed in today at 147.2 lbs lowest I have been so far! So that is also super exciting! I think logging my calories and nutrients has really helped and exercise! Man this was along post! Props if you read it all! LOL! <3 Heather

  1. You have such a fantastic smile! I don't think most people really are bothered if you don't spend as much time on their gift, as long as you don't make the yuck face its all good ;)
