Weekend of Showers

I hosted a shower for my brothers fiance, Ligia, this weekend. Thanks to all those who helped make it a success! We had a wonderful time with lots of good food.

A BIG thanks to my cousin Angie for making the invitations. A BIG thanks to my Aunt Nada for making YUMMY Bajio burritos. A BIG thanks to my cousin, Susie, for making the best chocolate covered strawberries ever! (my new favorite treat by the way) A BIG thanks to my Aunt Karma for the fruit and cinnamon sticks. A BIG thanks to my Aunt Marcia for making the favors and bringing her fun Mexico decorations! And a BIG thanks for everyone who came and supported us! I didn't have to do much but I couldn't have pulled it off without everyone's help!

Family in attendance

Miss Attitude

Ligia was so sweet and had everyone in the room crying! Brady is lucky to have her.

These were the centerpieces. Didn't they turn out cute? I'm obsessed with decorating with fruit lately. A BIG thanks to my cousin, Emily, for helping me arrange them!

We had another shower for Ligia on Sunday with the other side of the family. Thanks for hosting Loni and thanks to all those who helped. It was a fun weekend of wedding celebrations! I was also able to attend Ligia's endowment session at the Bountiful Temple. I've been so happy to be a part of this special time for them. We are on the count down now... The wedding is this Saturday!
