On to the fun stuff!! Here are a few pictures from my ward shower that I talked about in my previous post! I have been in the best ward!!
Me and some of the YW that helped with my shower. LOVE these girls! Cute Hannah Cope(the one in yellow) sat by my side the whole night and wrote down the gifts I received. What a sweetheart!
Me, Alyse, Cassandra and her darling baby, Lily. I have known these girls since birth!
They lined the entrance and the backyard with these cute bags that had sand and candles in them and pink and green "A's" and "J's" on them. Our very own luminaries!
This past Monday, I had the day off and went to the Zoo with my brother Tyson and my niece Ava. They have a zoo pass and have invited me several times, but I haven't been able to go with them. I finally had a day off that we could all go! It was so much fun to spend time with them. Tyson is the one responsible for me and Josh getting married and has always been such a good brother to me! And Ava is so much fun! She LOVES the zoo! But I know she wanted Josh to go with her instead of me. Boy does she have it bad for him!
This is Ava in front of her favorite animal, the Fossa! It is part of the Madagascar exhibit they have and for some reason, she loves this animal and talks about it a lot! She even knows what they eat. (they eat lemurs!)
She also loves the Rinos
It seems like every time you go to the zoo, most of the animals are sleeping but that day we got so lucky! The tiger was putting on a show and looked right at me for this picture! Then he got out of the water and jumped and paced his area. It was awesome.
There is a baby snow leopard at the zoo right now and he just happened to let us get a good glimpse of his face! SO cute!
Tyson always ends their visit to the zoo with a ride on the carousel. Ava LOVES it! I love that baby!
Also on Monday, some of my friends threw me a bachelorette type shower! It was so fun to spend the evening catching up with all my closest friends(minus Natalie who is in Vegas-love you, girl!) I have been blessed with great friends and I love them all dearly. They have been so supportive and amazing through my life and engagement. I love you all!
Liz and me. I've known this girl since 7th grade and we have lots of fun memories! And she is married to a Brighton Bengal! We have great taste!
Haylie, Alyse, Me and Cassandra! I LOVE these girls! I've known them for years and years and I always have a great time when I'm around them. I don't think I have ever laughed harder than when I've been around them!
Karen aka Chochie and Me!! Karen and I have been friends since she joined XI. I love Chochie and we have so much fun, especially when music is involved!
Me and most of my friends I've been close with since high school! I feel bad we didn't get a picture with everyone at the shower! I am so glad we have all stayed friends after all these years and they have all been such great friends to me!
And last but not least....here is a little sneak peak of our bridals. I figured since this got posted on Facebook, I might as well post it on here! See you all next week for our big day!!
