"Bling" Bridal Shower

I have a backlog of posts to go up - I raced two races last weekend, I am in week 6 of half ironman training and in just 8 short weeks will be riding my bike 545 miles down to LA.

Work has kept me pretty busy these past few months and while I am not complaining it has left little time for much else.  I think all I do is work, ride my bike, eat, sleep, repeat.  However, I got to take a break from it all and host my sister's bridal shower.  That's right, a weekend without a long ride or a long run or work and it felt great.  My sister's wedding is in less than two months - it doesn't seem too long ago we were just dress shopping.

Sometimes in law school I dreamed about dropping out to be a party planner.  I absolutely love to plan parties - well, anything really - I am a planner through and through.  Drives my spontaneous husband crazy.  Anyway, the key to an awesome party is a theme and for my sister's shower the theme was "bridal bling."  What can I say, she is a girl after my own heart.  I had a blast decorating in hot pink, crystals and animal prints. 

The shower was held at a local vineyard restaurant.  The grounds are beautiful and I would have loved to be outside but the rainy weather kept us inside this weekend.  We had a blast nonetheless and Lisa was showered with lots of love.  I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

For every question she answered wrong she had to chew gum - this is what happens when you answer too many questions wrong about your future fiance!

Next up on the party planning list - the bachelorette party in Vegas!

I promise to be back soon with race recaps and training updates.
Pin It!
