Bridal Shower & Friendsgiving

I've been so busy the past couple weeks with working and planning the wedding that I really feel like I've been slacking on blogging! I hope that by the beginning of the year, things will have calmed down and I'll be able to post about events a little sooner.

Over the past weekend, I hosted, along with 3 other bridesmaids, my friend Megan's bridal shower. It turned out amazing and everyone had a great time so it was a success in my book. I was in charge of favors and tableware/serveware. I really wanted to do something unique for Megan to make her feel special on her day so after some internet searching, I came across a local woman who makes custom sugar cookies out of her home. After searching her blog, I decided on two designs and caller her up to put in my order. I went with a monogrammed heart and a wedding dress. Megan's wedding colors are yellow & black so I also wanted to incorporate that into the cookies. I picked them up just a couple days before the shower and couldn't have been more pleased with how they turned out. I'm even considering using her to do something for my wedding in August. Her company is Cookie Crumbs and if you live in the Columbus area, I highly recommend her.

After the shower, I headed back to my apartment to meet Todd who was making Cheddar Bacon Skillet Biscuits for Friendsgiving. We went over to my friends' place, Dave & Liz, who were hosting a thanksgiving for a bunch of their friends. They provided the turkey and mashed potatoes and everyone else brought a dish. There were so much food it was ridiculous but everything was delicious. I always think potlucks are the best because everyone always brings really good dishes.
