Derby "I do!"

Last weekend we celebrated a very special "bride -to- be". But before I go into shower details I have to explain how I know this wild woman. Jenny and I met the day we moved into the dorms freshmen year. Lets just say it wasn't love at first sight.... I don't think she really wanted to be friend with us (my high school BF and college roommate Patti), and we kinda didn't want to be friends with her either. True story!
As I'm typing this I am cracking up because despite our first impressions of each other (Colleyville snob, big ol' roll bangs, frosty white lipstick.....ok, that was all of us) there is not one college memory without her. We all became best friends after one night on 6th Street and here we are nearly 15 years later celebrating her upcoming wedding....

To say this crew has been through a lot together is an understatement. College friends our so special because they really become your family when you are away from home for the first time.

We love you Jen 00! 
That is a double zero because girl had custom plates on her red two door Explorer and she will never live that nickname down...holla!

Okay! Shower details. I have to give a huge props to my best girl Tavia who hosted the shower at her beautiful new house one week after they moved in....yes one week. The thought of that stresses me out but she somehow pulled it off and it looked amazing. Oh yeah, she cooked all the food as well. Over achiever making us all look bad. Like any good hostess we were emailed with several "to-do's" before the big day. We all came together with our best skill sets....crafting, cooking, drink mixing to shower Jenny with love.

**I really wanted to document every last detail because Jen's mom was not able to make the shower. She was in Dallas and unable to make the trip. We are all wishing Ms. Marsha a speedy recovery and can't wait to celebrate with everyone in a couple of week. Marsha, I know you of all people would have loved seeing all of the details that went into the day. Lots of love! We will see you soon!

The theme was Kentucky Derby. All of the beautiful ladies wore their best derby hat which was so cute and fun but incredibly hard to hug people! We were all laughing because when you are wearing a hat and a dress you seem to act a little more proper than normal. Most of us!


So pretty!

Ok, what made this shower special....
The food! Gorgeous and delicious! All traditional Derby cuisine...again, thanks to Tavia!
Flowers everywhere! Tiny gold horses! Moss letters and horse shoes! Custom college education really paying off here! Yummy drinks!!! Printed photos of the bride and groom all over the house! OMG and a beautiful bride! I was cussing her tiny waste. The only human who could fit into that outfit (I can't wait until she gets pregnant!)



....these two!
Hey little bride!

Could these girls be any more beautiful?!?!?!

Best friends for almost 15 years!

J + J

Everything was just perfect. Again, thank you to all of the hostesses and everyone who came to the shower to celebrate Jen. Just a few more days until she says "I Do". 

Happy Derby Bridal Shower!
