I honestly was a little nervous for this. I haven’t had a party thrown for me since I was 8 and I was really dreading opening presents in front of everyone. I know that’s probably odd, but I just really don’t like attention on me.
I was also really nervous that no one would show up except for my bridesmaids and my mom. Boy was I wrong, only a few girls of my list of 20+ weren’t able to make it! I know, weird issue again, but its just how I think sometimes!
The week before the shower, my mom and I went shopping for a dress for me to wear. I knew I wanted something white, but that’s all I had in mind. We searched for hours and I just didn’t find anything I liked. On the way out of our last store we walked by the register and I glanced at a dress I saw that was hanging there on hold. It was beautiful and so me. I asked the woman and she said it was no longer on hold because it was past the time period. It was the only one in the store….and it fit perfectly! It was a long flowy white chiffon dress and the top was very similar to my wedding dress! It was a little fancy for the shower, but I didn’t care, I loved it!

Sitting down to open presents while everyone stared at me wasn’t too terrible….but I’m not sure I ever looked up or looked anyone in the eye! I just kept doing my thing and saying thank you a million times!
Only 60 more days to go….I can’t believe it!
