La...La...Lingerie

I figured that I better continue our love story and our journey to the wedding so that I can hopefully have it finished by our 1 year anniversary. (#procastinator) I'm going to give Rhi over at Hey Gorgeous the credit for inspiring me to finish it because she continually posts the most amazing wedding recaps. : )

I was super blessed to be given several showers by friends and family. I did a few recaps of them way back in the day, like when they actually happened. I decided to start with my lingerie showers and go forward. Yes, lucky me had two lingerie showers. Actually, that makes lucky hubby. ; ) My coworkers threw one and I have absolutely no pictures from it. (#shameful) My college besties threw the other one and it was amazing!

My amazing friend, Melissa, is the greatest party-thrower and always does something unique and creative. It was a small and intimate shower full of laughs, love, reminiscing, and squeals. As I sat there among my best friends in the world, who I truly consider sisters, I remember feeling so emotional and happy. To be surrounded with that much love and support is simply breathtaking. Plus, I got some really adorable lingerie!

The entrance: tissue balls and a diet coke cake. How darling is that cake?

If y'all know me at all, then y'all know diet coke is my love. 

The "panty" tree.

Cutest cake ever made. Oh, and super delicious, too!

My best friend, Alyse. 

Another of my best friends, Candace. 

They did such a fun little "game" at the shower. It was called the panty line and it was basically "my life in panties" or "my panties through the years." They had bride panties, wedding night panties, Valentine's Day panties, 1st year anniversary panties, etc. The last pair was for our 50th wedding anniversary and was a huge pair of granny panties. We seriously could not stop laughing...it was the cutest thing ever. 

The infamous granny panties. 

My sweet niece, attending her first lingerie shower at 1 year old. 

Chug, chug, chug. 

All in all, it was one absolutely fabulous day. Hubby truly is thankful for that shower. ; ) TMI? We all spent the night together and left the next day for my bachelorette beach bash. That'll be up next! : )

Have a great Monday!!

Love, love!

PS: Those diet cokes are NOT open in that picture...the baby is not really drinking anything. ; )

Sarah Elizabeth said...

the decorations are so cute!!! love the cake..zebra print is my fav!

Gail @ Sophisticated Steps said...

Everything about this is adorable! Love the panty tree! I had a lingerie shower, too and had a very similar cake. Only problem was I got sooo much lingerie, I had very little reason to go out and buy anything for myself for a very long time. But that was 11 years ago. (I hate saying that - makes me sound so old!) It has since been replaced and updated. Vavavoom! ;)

I about had a coronary when I saw the baby "drinking" coke! Thank you for the clarification! Haha!

Rebekah said...

I LOVE the idea of panties through your life. So fun. Haha granny panties. That reminds me of when my grandma sent me some lingerie when I was still engaged and it ended up being a size 16, red sheer little number...with matching panties. Haha my sister and I could fit into those panties together. It's the thought right?

Michaela said...
