If I remember correctly, my bridal shower was on October 15th, 2011.
It was organized by my amazing mother and God-sister. This event, was a memorable one, as they made sure everyone was having an out of this world good time; eating, drinking, dancing and playing games.
They had all of my favorite foods; an assortment of vegetarian sushi, my madrina’s famous empanadas de camaron y carne molida, my moms famous taquitos con salsa verde, her delicious spinach dip, fruit, veggie and meat platters, and of course wings! There was also a surplus of alcohol; wine, sangria, tequila, beer, vodka and tequila strawberry jello shots! Oh, the jello shots were so delicious, I had totally forgotten how good they were…
My god sister decorated the space so nicely, with balloons, pinwheels, and some rather sexy things, which I got to keep! Hehehe. She also made me a personalized guestbook/scrapbook, which was so sweet. Guests passed the book from one to another during the evening/night/madrugada and wrote their sweet messages to me! There was a lot of thoughtful advice and tips for a “healthy, happy, and long lasting marriage” in the guestbook, probably since the majority of the woman have been married for 15+ years.
The games were so much fun to play. There was a memorization game, which was hilarious, but that’s all I can say about that one, hahaha. We also played “hot potato,” but replaced the potato with something else..take a wild guess, ahaha. There was also “pin the macho on the man…” Mhmmm. Oh, we also played “ring toss.” And the best activity of the night, in my opinion, was the pee-knee-ah-ta (pi~ata). It was awesome, I hadn’t hit a pi~ata in ages, probably since I was twelve, so it was incredible to do something that I always did (and loved) during my childhood. Memories!!! 🙂
I couldn’t have asked for a better bridal shower, it was incredbile! Thanks Ines, and mom for making my bridal shower such a memorable one! And a huge thank you to everyone who attended, for showering me with all your positive vibes and love…and gifts.
