this past weekend, my bridesmaids all threw me a shower in CT for the north-of-the-George-Washington-bridge crowd and it was just as gorgeous and just as perfect. as promised, here are some recaps from the day!
(c) becky pageok first of all, my cousin breanne ordered custom-made M&Ms with our PICTURE on them!
(c) becky pagethen they had this cool chair swinging from a tree that they made me sit in. ok, they didn't actually make me do it, i was actually kind of excited to sit in it :)
(c) becky pageand they had all my favorite treats. including hot fries: classy, yet unrefined, andy capps hot fries :) my girls know me all too well - and california doesn't have hot fries!

(c) becky page (me with tons of gum in my mouth, haha!)remember that game i mentioned a few weeks ago? well guess what - they had it for my shower!! well i had to eat quite a few pieces of bubblegum (it wasn't a drinking game, i had to eat a piece of bubbleyum with every wrong answer!) it was the pressure, i promise!
(c) becky pageand what shower is complete without opening lingerie in front of your mother (far right!), grandmother, and future mother-in-law? at least everyone else got a kick out of it. meanwhile i was trying to shove it back in the bag but the girls wouldn't let me get away with it that easily :)
(c) becky pageand of course there's always a "tear-jerker" gift. a compilation of recipes from my late grandmother, mimi, who recently passed away in march. although she may not have physically been there, i know she was with me the whole time in spirit.
(c) kathy fromholzlast but not least, a photo of me and my bridal party. it was so special to have everyone there - especially those who traveled far and wide during such a busy weekend (saturday before the 4th of july) and my future mother-in-law and aunt who came up from NJ for a second shower!!
i was overwhelmed with the love that was shown and the attention to detail! along with the m&ms, my maid of honor also planted little basil plants for people to bring home and there were little bath & body works soaps for everyone. it was just perfect and i can't even begin to thank everyone enough (for the NJ shower and CT shower)!
