Who's the bride?

I had my first ever bridal shower this last weekend. Or should I said my first of two. And I'll be honest, I was nervous.

 For one, I had never had a bridal shower. I have been to several so I had an idea of what to expect, but I'm not always great when all the attention is on me. It just makes me nervous, so a whole afternoon devoted to me was just plain scary to me.

For two, it was in Iowa with Rob's family and I didn't really know anyone. I had only met some of them once, so I wasn't sure what to expect.


But after an awkward start, it definitely got better. It became more natural and easier to mingle with everyone. We ate and just sat around talking and getting to know each other. We then started games. The first game was two truths and a lie. It was fun, but apparently I'm not great at reading people and their lies. They were very convincing.

The next game we played was how well do you know the bride. There was 17 questions and just so you know, I got them all right!

The last thing we did was we broke up into teams and took about five minutes to come up with poems about me and Rob. It was actually really cool. I ended up with really cool poems that were really creative and awesome.

After that we had cake and punch then we moved on to presents. It's always amazing to me how kind and giving people are. People continue to surprise me.


Overall the shower was very awesome. I had a good time. I enjoyed getting to know some of the women in his family. His mom was amazing in all that she did. And it was a great (first) shower for me. I can't thank his family enough for their kindness and welcoming to the family.

And oh yeah in 27 days, I'll be an Evans.
