Flowergirl Dress Shopping

We found the flowergirl dresses and they are AMAZING!

Kirk Family Bridal Shower

The following Saturday morning I had another fabulous Bridal Shower through by my incredible sister. As busy as she is with school and her internship and moving to San Diego, she found time to put together an amazing bridal shower! The food was delicious, my parents neighbor and close family friend, Cindy Dettner, down the street made this beautiful watermelon bowl
The cake was incredible from Freeport Bakery and believe me it tasted every bit as delicious as it looks.
So many close friends and family members came and at the end of the evening I felt so incredibly loved. I was also blessed to have all of my beautiful bridesmaids in attendance (Kelli was even able to make it all the way from LA)
Of course, no bridal shower is complete without games (according to me), here are the beautiful toilet paper brides.
My sister also created an amazing video of Brian answering questions about himself and me. It was the hit of the shower and everyone LOVED it.
The shower was amazing and we received so many wonderful gifts!

Barrett Family Bridal Shower

Last Friday night was my 1st bridal shower thrown by my wonderful future sister in law, Deeanna. It was absolutely beautiful! It was a wonderful evening and I enjoyed every moment of the evening. Coincidentally I even matched the favor bags =). We had a wonderful meal with a delicious batch of Sangria. And bless my sister in laws heart she even planned some games, since she knew how fond of them I was. The best game ended with a surprised guest opening this little number
Everyone was amazingly generous! I feel so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives!

It's Real

It's real, it's almost here! Brian and I have been planning our wedding for a little over a year now and it has since the beginning felt like this magical event that was part of a dream. However, as the wedding day grows closer and we make final appointments with the DJ, the florist and the photographer it's becoming more than just a magical dream, it's a reality! It's here! Our wedding is in 35 days! The invitations are out, the registries are created and my first wedding shower is tonight!

Five Question Friday

My poor lonely blog! I have been neglecting my blogging!

Five Question Friday: Compliments of Mama M @ My Little Life

1. What is your favorite thing about summertime?
The weather! I LOVE the heat. I love being outside in the sun and soaking up the heat! Oh and the nights I love when you can be outside at night and not have to run back in for a sweatshirt!

2. What is your ideal retirement location (if money didn't matter)?
Anywhere near the Ocean!

3. Do you live in the same town you grew up in?
Nope, my fiancée talked me into moving to an even smaller town than I grew up in and I hate to admit it but it's really growing on me =)

4. What nervous habit did you have as a child that you kicked to the curb before becoming an adult?
Wrinkling my nose, my mom always said I looked like a bunny rabbit =)

5. What is the most embarrassing thing that happened to you while on the job?
Hmmm....probably tripping over the carpet in front of my kindergarteners and almost falling on my face
