Shower Power

I've been amiss for over a week!

How on Earth have you all survived?

Just kidding. I bet you're thinking, "Thank goodness that TMF blog hasn't landed in my inbox in a week, I actually got some stuff done!"

Kidding again.

Anyway, it was a melee of activity at TMF this past week, and I'm happy to say there are calmer seas ahead. Not that we minded it - it was good chaos (for the most part).

This past Saturday, we hosted a bridal shower for my future sister-in-law, Kristin. She and my brother Jay are getting married in July - the countdown is on! All pre-wedding soirees are in the works, and this was the first leading up to the Big Day.

It was also our first large party at TMF, and a fancy, wine-themed one at that. Sadly, I don't have any photos of the shower in action - I was busy running around opening new wine bottles, greeting guests, prepping and escorting food out and then back in again.

The morning of, my mom and one of the bridesmaids took our yard from this:
To this:

The centerpieces were my favorite part, and I didn't have anything to do with them!
The shower was a huge success, and we now have more leftover food than we know what to do with. Actually, we'll eat it. Until, like, August.

I love it! And I especially love that you have a whole series of parties planned leading up to the big day. You must have a really fun family!

Beautiful centerpieces! What a pretty setting as well. Glad it was a successful event!

KC, you've got it all wrong -- we were dyin' out here, wondering, "When on Earth is KC going to post again? When will we have an update of the goings-on at Thunder Moon Farm? Have Matt and KC become pod people? If so, are the horses being properly taken care of?" As you can see, it's been a troubling time. We missed you and are glad you're back. : )

I second Arliss' comments. I was having TMF withdrawal. I love the shower decor, especially the centerpieces. I'd have filled them with tequila and handed out straws. Yummeriffic.

Glad you're back to blogging. We missed you!
