Last night we had my "Lingerie Bridal Shower" and I have to say it was fabulous!!! Maria, Jen, Rachelle and Laura did an amazing job putting everything together. The decorations were cute and Laura did an awesome job with all the food. Years of friendship with Laura has been well worth it. We had a great turn out and lots of fun. I could not believe how great all the gifts were. They were so creative and way sexy. I'm sure Ricky will be pleased with all the purchases ;) But I'll tell you my two favorite parts of the evening were one to see the video answers Ricky gave to all these questions. If it's not too large of a file I'll upload it because it is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. He LIED!! With a few of the questions, knowing that I'd have to jam gum in my mouth for every wrong question. For the record I gave correct answers to the best of my ability....Ricky just likes to come up with fun stories to tell whether they are true or not. But watching the video made me miss him and his laugh even more. He left yesterday for Mexico till Sunday with Jer and Bryce and some other guys to go deep sea fishing. :(
My second favorite part of the evening was when I opened Sara's (Ricky's aunt) present. She TOTALLY BOUGHT ME MY JESSICA SIMPSON RED PEEP TOE 4 1/2" HEELS!!!!! It was like the 3rd present I opened and I literally almost started crying (I'm not far from tears much these days. Stupid Birth Control Pills!!) I think I even said okay I'm done I don't need anymore presents I'm good! You'll see the pictures of them in the next slide show. They are stunning and they look SOOOOO good under my dress!!! The girls wanted me to try on my dress after the shower was done and I had to put the shoes with them. It is PERFECT!!! After the shower ended and we were cleaning up we decided to layout all my outfits to see how may I got and how we could mix and match them. I ended with up 14 outfits not including the mixing and matching. I'm so excited!! But just as we got all the outfits layed out in the front room we got a knock at the door and It was Bill and Denise's BISHOP!! I'm pretty sure I was bright red and felt bad for the guy walking into a room full of girls in their 20's and 30's playing with lingerie! He came in and went to the other room to talk to Bill and when he left he went out through the garage door. We were laughing so hard!
All in All it was a great evening full of good fun and friends. Thank you again to everyone who came and for all the great gifts. I'd say I'll tell you if Ricky ends up liking them...but that's pretty much a given, He's an Ackley after all ;)
