Recipe for a Welcome Bag that Works
By: Ashley Woodhouse | Posted: 10/18/2013
Seeing as Kurt and I are T minus three days from blasting off into wedded bliss, we are both surprisingly very calm. Everyone keeps asking us how we’re “holding up” and we don’t quite understand why we wouldn’t be just fine. Maybe we’re missing something, but rather than being stressed and nervous, we’re both pretty excited for Saturday! The only thing we’re a tad worried about is saying “I will” instead of “I do” for our vows. All this time we have been chanting “I DO! I DO! I DO!” to each other, until our minister threw a curve ball at us by preferring “I will.” All that practice down the drain . . .
The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of last minute planning, bachelor parties, and bridal showers. While Kurt headed east for one last hurrah with his buddies in Michigan, my mom’s friends hosted a lovely bridal shower for me. It was a night of laughs, stories, and lots of amazing gifts! I don’t think a party has been thrown just for me since I was 10. To have my close friends and relatives gather together in honor of my wedding was extremely special and something I will cherish forever. Not only were my mom and grandma Oma there, but Kurt’s mom, Jackie, also flew in from Michigan just to attend. Being surrounded by such amazing women eased any stress that I have been feeling about this upcoming weekend.
