Last Sunday I hosted a bridal shower for my good friend Arielle. Arielle is marrying Ryan, who has been Nick's best friend since elementary school. We are so excited about the wedding! They are clearly perfect together. We played Couples Twenty Questions at the shower (best bridal shower game ever), and Arielle actually knew that if Ryan could be any superhero, he would choose the Green Lantern. That sort of knowledge clearly means soul mates. Although Ryan did think Arielle's favorite food was apples, which she found a horrifying choice. (the correct answer was dark chocolate). Now he knows the truth, so I feel I have brought them even closer together before the nuptials. My work here is done.
Anyway, the shower was a ton of fun and a hug success. Here are a couple of pictures of the event.
Here is the bride to be hanging out with sweet Cici
Me and Arielle. I must say I am not a fan of this picture, seeing as how I look like a gigantic beast, but it is the only picture I am actually in, so it gets included in the post.

Arielle with her work friends (alas, I forgot their names)
Another one with Cici, just because she looks so adorable with her Mama
Mmmmmm Shower Cake (next I would have some pictures of present opening...but I didn't take any. But trust me, she got gifts. and they were lovely)
Did you all know that some people save tissue paper from presents? And they get a little crazy if they see you just stuffing it all into a trash bag? And they pull it out and PRESS it flat and take it home. Like a party favor. Well, it's true. These are my friends.
The shower was a huge hit. And completely exhausting, according to Cici.
