Me the Bride-to-Be, Showered with Love, Laughter and Lingerie!

November 7, 2007 at 6:29 pm (General, Wedding)

My mom and sister kindly hosted my lingerie wedding shower. Katie did the adorable invitations (I stole her line as my title here!). The day was perfect. It started at my mom’s house with a great group of girls. My mom had set up a wine tasting that included my current favorite wine called ‘Bitch’ Barossa Grenache, very cute! Everything was perfect from the weather (a sunny fall, blue sky day of about 65 degrees) to the wine, to the cake, to the company! Did I mention how good the cake was – YUM! Cake 

I got a ton of gorgeous lingerie and pjs. It was a really great mix of the sexy, the cute, and the cozy. I even got some leopard print from my mother-in-law to be 🙂 When I opened it, someone yelled out ‘Looks like she wants some more grandkids’, it was really cute!

After the shower a bunch of us hopped on the Banjo Billy Bus Tour of Boulder. It is a funky Boulder tour that tells a mix of crime and historical stories of Boulder while riding through town in a tricked out old school bus that looks like a hillbilly shack on wheels. We brought a cooler of jello shots and champagne, so we were quite the rowdy bunch, smartly placed in the back of the bus. John the tour guide gave us a drinking game to play – every time he mentioned a dead person (from a crime story), we would all cheer and take a drink ‘to dead people’. Check it out – Bus inside Julie & Katie Judy, Me, Mom, Maureen

After Banjo Billy, we went back to my house to get ready for the night. We had a tea room at Zanmai, a Japanese Steak and Sushi house in downtown Boulder.  It was a great time. Cindy, Me, Judy Cindy Koehler had gone wild with decorations, including Raoul the blow-up doll, that ended up out and about with us all night long. Kris & Raoul She also brought some ‘art’ to hang to the wall of each place we went for the night, and of course I was decorated as well – with a purple wig, tiara, boas and body stickers (sexy!). Me After Zamai, we went out to Trilogy for drinks and dancing Katie & Raoul. After a late night, a group of us (including a deflated Raoul)went back to my house for a PJJ (Pajama Jammy Jam). It was such an amazing night. Having my mom and my sister and my girlies all together was really special! Sis, Me, Mom, At Trilogy 

It was a day and night to remember! Special thanks to Mom and Julie for the shower and Cindy K for the crazy bachelorette night!
