our first wedding shower!

This past weekend Adam's cousins and aunt hosted a couple's shower for Adam + I. I have had two showers before this, but they were both themed showers so it was really fun to have a "real" shower. We got so much great stuff! I never in my life thought I would be so excited to get an iron!! Ha!

We are so so lucky to have such thoughtful family members! I am marrying into such a great family!! SO thankful.

 Fun story.. one of Adam's cousins got this made for us by a homeless man that lives in her town. She said he helps out at the dry cleaners and bends old hangers with pliers to make names, shapes, etc. I thought it was really neat!!

My little helper ; )

We got our toasting champaign flutes! I am so excited about this!! 

One of my flower girls ; )

The Leakey's!! We were joking that I only have 2 months left with a normal last name ; ) Haha!! Even though Leakey is not the most desirable last name to inherit I don't care because it means I am married!! 

Uncle Addy & Aunt May May as Carolyne-Grace would say ; )

With my parents!

It's hard to believe there are only 9 Saturdays left until we say "I do" !! 



  1. Awww looks like such a fun time! The names in the hanger thing is too cool!

  2. Looks like so much fun! Can't believe you are getting married so soon - it seems like time is flying!

  3. awh that's so's getting so close!! and what a neat story about the hangers..too cute!

  4. sweet! Love that yall did it together, I had two showers. One all ladies and the other a couples one...loved doing it with my man!
    and that story about the homeless man making that adorable name and heart out of hangers is awesome! How cool!

  5. Looks so fun! I loved showers!

  6. Your dress is adorable!! I don't want to give up my last name either...Nick's is Epstein...terrible. My whole life I'll be asked if I'm Jewish. I'm willing to take it though because marriage sounds WAY better than a last name :)

  7. You are gorgeous! Love that hanger. So cool! :)


  8. your niece has the sweetest smile! looks like it was a wonderful shower :)
