Bridal shower and Bachelorette Party/B-day

It did not all happen in just one day, That would be way too busy!

I had a Bridal Shower thanks to my dear MIL and then the weekend after that, my Bachelorette Party/Birthday :) Both pretty awesome weekends. So let's start with the first one.

Bridal Shower

MIL organized a Bridal shower for me with most of her friends and family (at that point I didn't really had many friends in California so I borrowed hers)

She did such a great job! and I am so Thankful, the food was awesome and the games super fun.

She had everyone set up baskets with themes as presents, and the Poodle stuff animal in my first present was one of my favorites!

Another gift tradition was this very cool and fun baby-doll, it took me a while to figure what it was, so once I did it was extra funny.

An the most touching moment was when MIL's Aunt Margaret hand me the engagement right of her Grandma as my something old, a tradition they have being carried for a very long time now, inside the box there was a card for me and another one that has being signed by all the brides in the family that had worn the ring in their wedding day. In that moment I really felt like as was a part of the family already so I couldn't help to cry, and of course it was a very special moment to remember and honor the brides that are not longer with us.

MIL and Mimi (MiL's Mom) baked me not just one but two super tasty cakes, a pretty bride and a flower basket cake :) they were so good!

Bachelorette and B-day Party

This time I had nothing to wear so a few hours before we had to leave I grab some fabric I gad laying down and added some tulle in the inside, I added an elastic, a few stitches and I had the perfect skirt.

I pair it with a shirt, a belt  and I was ready to go :)

We head to a restaurant first to have dinner. Once we got there my friend Katy pull this goodie bag with a sash, tiara and very sassy props for all of us.

I say Shannon's face when she saw them is priceless :)

And one of my favorites my very own "bun pincher"

MIL and SIL join us later for the fun.

Our waitress that night was awesome, she helped Katy with games and make the waiters play with us, they read their cards and made funny challenges with us, they even posed in our pictures.

After dinner it was time for Katy's special cupcakes!!

But not before I completed the last challenge and get one of the waiter's belt. It was pretty funny and after I read the card, he just took it off and handed it to me saying "I will need it back tho"

After that we headed off to dance, MIL had my in the screen, how sweet of her!!

We had so much fun trying to learn how to line dance, and even though I didnt had it planned I did dance with a man. But how could I have said no? after all |I had to learn to be able to dance at the wedding.

I also got the chance to ride the mechanic bull for the first time ever :)

I know what you might be thinking, but don't worry I brought pants for that part

They were both awesome weekends and I am so thankful my friends and MIL  did all this for me :) I makes me feel so loved!
