Wordish Wednesday - Showers of Happiness

As some of you may or may not know, one of my very best friends is getting married in September. EEE! So excited for her!

This past weekend we had her bridal shower for her. It turned out lovely! She was showered with lots of love, tons of happiness and a ton of joy! I can't think of anyone who doesn't deserve it more than her... love you, girly! ♥

The beautiful couple is getting married in Yankee Stadium.. yes, you heard that right.. YANKEE STADIUM! Could that be anymore awesome? So her bridal shower theme was... tada.. yankees! I thought it was cute & different for a bridal shower, instead of your typical run of the mill wedding bells and fru-fru (not that there is anything wrong with that, too!). The Bridal Party had a great time decorating, planning and giving our future Bride and wonderful shower!

OF COURSE I took a ton of pictures so.. enjoy! (or you can skip to the end & just leave a well wish for the bride-to-be!)

{The cake! Neat, isn't it?}

{Party favors ~ chocolates in the shapes of baseballs & bats}

{The cute little tag said "A Homerun for Love & Happiness" }

{Table centerpieces... buckets filled w/peanuts & baseball stuff}

{Pretty card box}

{Margarita glasses were ready to go!}

{Yummy, yummy food}

{Almost too pretty to drink... ALMOST}

{Pretty packages with pretty presents inside}

{The Bride's Daughter and Maid of Honor ~ Amber ♥}

{Future Mr. & Mrs.}

{Mommy & Daugher - and the yummy cake again!}

{Bridal Party - minus one who lives out of state}

{a few of the very cute guests}

{no Bridal Shower is complete without the simply adorable 'bow hat' now is it?}

{The Bride & I enjoying an after party drink}
the long road 

I can't tell you all again how very happy I am for this girl. She's is going to make one beautiful bride and I can't wait to tell you ALL about it!

My Favorite Things -- I do!

I'm always browsing etsy looking for new & different things. I'm amazed at all of the creative people who come up with the most adorable stuff! I thought I'd start sharing some of the cute things I find with you.

Since I am in wedding-mode due to having my best friends bridal shower this weekend and getting my pretty silver shoes for the wedding.. guess what the theme is? WEDDING STUFF!! hehe. Such cute stuff, too!

I LOVE the puzzle idea, how neat is that? So different! And the stickers for the bottom of your shoes, so clever!!

Have you ever found anything cute on etsy you'd like to share?

Happy Shopping!!
