My Bridal Shower!

I just got back to beautiful southern California after a little over a week in Florida. I am so happy that I was able to spend time with my friends and family in Orlando, and I can't wait to go back in June for the wedding!

While I was in Orlando, my beautiful mother and my best friend Stephanie threw me an AMAZING bridal shower! It was so much fun to get together with my friends and family, and the awesome food and presents didn't hurt either :)

My gorgeous cousin Michelle, Randi, Me, Stephanie, and my future sister-in-law Megan!

My beautiful mom, me, and my future mother-in-law! 

Brianna, Megan, me, Mrs. Nicholas, and Brooke

I have always wanted a sister, and I'm so excited that after July 9th, I'll have three! Brooke, Brianna, and Megan are the most amazing girls. They're all extremely smart, funny, and gorgeous! I can't wait to become part of their family!

My aunt made the most incredible food! Chicken salad sandwiches on croissants, fruit bouquets, chocolate-covered strawberries, brownies, cheesecake, and so much more!

In addition to the food and wonderful company, there were SO many presents! I am so blessed to have such a supportive and generous group of family and friends.

The presents were all wrapped in adorable bags and wrapping paper. Everything was so pretty that I didn't want to unwrap any of it, and I'll admit that I saved all the bags and ribbon. Way too cute to throw away!

Me and my future mother-in-law!

Michelle, Randi, me, Stephanie, and Megan!

Can we talk about how gorgeous my friends and bridesmaids are? I seriously have to step up my game every time we hang out because they're all drop dead gorgeous! Michelle, Stephanie, Megan, and Chelsea have been the most supportive and fun bridesmaids a bride could ask for! I was so sad that Chelsea couldn't make it to the shower, but I know that all of us will have such a great time planning the rest of the wedding and at the bachelorette party!

Drop dead gorgeous girls + me. Michelle, Randi, me, and the future Miss Florida Stephanie Ziajka!

I am so happy that I got to share the day with my favorite people in the world. My bridal shower was definitely a day that I won't ever forget!
