Brett's Shower :)

The reason for my trip to Austin was for a little shower/party to celebrate my and Brett's upcoming nuptials....except, Brett wasn't invited to this party. Girls only!! :)

Renae and Melissa threw the most amazing shower! They thought of everything, and I couldn't be any luckier to have them in my life and as such amazing friends. As I look back over the last few years, and now as we live in three different states, it's so awesome to know that we've all been together at Renae and Jeff's wedding in March 2008, at Melissa and Chris' wedding in November 2009....and will be at my and Brett's in just a few weeks.

I asked Emily to get a few shots for me, and I would have never expected her to capture every little bit....but she did, and so I get to share the details of the party....well, some details. Most photos will not be shown.....heehee.....but you can check out the girls' thoughtful decor for the party!

Of course I LOVED all the yellow!!! :)

I was super excited that my sisters, Taylor and Erika, drove in from Houston to join the party too. They made the super quick trip and were in Austin for less than 12 hours, but it was so special to me that they came to see me, and meet Betty and Autumn too. I love this picture that Emily got of the 3 of us with my Mom. I think this one is a framer. :)

I will not be sharing any of the pictures from the game we played.....but I thought it was so fun. Emily had asked Brett a few questions and had me give what I thought his answers would be. Surprisingly, I got some of the most random ones correct....but for the ones that I missed, I had to put a piece of bubble gum in my mouth. At the end, I had 7 pieces in there, and let's just say that it wasn't pretty.

I was showered with the most fun gifts.....well, Brett was showered, even though he wasn't present.....these presents were ALL for him. I'm super excited about sharing them with him on our honeymoon. Oooh, la la!!

The evening was filled with stories, laughter, some tears, but most of all a special, wonderful time, with my most favorite Texas women. I miss them so much each day, and wish I could selfishly put them all in my suitcase and take them back home with me.

Thank you ALL for being in my life. I am so blessed to call you all friends and love you all very much!
