You guessed it- a BRIDAL SHOWER!

All of my girls got together & had planned to throw me a surprise bridal shower after we all tried on dresses. My oldest sister, Erin, who we had the baby shower for was the master mind behind it all πŸ™‚ SO SWEET of her to share her special day with me! I’m one lucky girl to have such a sweet sister πŸ™‚

After leaving David’s Bridal, we had reservations at 310 in Winter Park. I haveΒ been there before, but not since they remodeled the restaurant- it is SO NICE now. Much more space & a huge outside area.
Before dinner, I ordered an expresso Martini- YUM! It was SO good!! I needed something with a bit of a ‘kick’ to it because I was feelin’ a bit sleepy.

those three 'things' are coffee beans πŸ™‚

For my entree, I ordered seared ahi tuna. I’ve really been on a kick for this lately. I think it’s SO good. Sorry no picture, but trust me, if was yummy!!

After dinner we were all sitting around just talking & catching up, then all of the sudden I see my brother in law walk in the restaurant with a pile of gifts! My two cousins also went to help him- they were ‘going to the bathroom.’ lol! They all COMPLETELY surprised me!! I had NO IDEA this was coming.

I just ran over & gave my brother in law a huge hug & thanked everyone for the surprise πŸ˜€ Hank left, and then my sister showed me the cake that she got me.


my favorite πŸ™‚ Sunflowers & purple piping along the bottom of the cake

After cutting the cake, I started opening my presents. I had actually registered at a few stores, just for a few things that I knew for sure that I wanted. Well, they were were looking thru all of the wedding registries to find mine πŸ™‚
Here come pictures of the gifts:
