This past Saturday a friend threw a bridal shower where a few of my favorite people in the world came. She and her sisters brought a lot of good and refreshing food and drink, like
chips and salsa
veggie tray of carrots, celery, broccoli, sugar snap peas
chocolate chip cookies
We sat around and talked for a little bit. Some people got reacquainted, like Amy and my mom. Did I mention my mom was in town? She is the incontestable coolest person in the world.
Some people got to know each other for the first time.
These people came:
Reilly’s mom also came toward the end of the party.
Those people brought these gifts, most of which are from Bed Bath & Beyond, where Reilly and I are registered. As they are listed, the gifts do not correspond to the guest order:
salt and pepper shakers
book about who to marry
Gifts surprise me. It thrilled me to receive them. It sometimes blows my mind that people like us so much.
We played the game where two teams create dresses made out of toilet paper. I have creative friends, and they made beautiful dresses. And my mom was the model for one of the teams. She was a very good model.
Then Cynthia read us a children’s story on who to choose for marriage. It was cute, and all the advice applied to how I chose Reilly.
This is a very scattered post. And I have used a ton of passive voice. College has destroyed my thinking and writing ability.
Am I really getting married in 35 days?
