this weekend sure was a busy one! after ryan's birthday party on saturday, i went to a bridal shower for my friend jenn on sunday. jenn and i have known each other since fifth grade, but we now live several hours away from each other. it was nice to be able to celebrate this special day with jenn and to see her family again.
the shower was at blair vineyards. this was my first time at a vineyard, and i couldn't get over the acres upon acres of grape vines.
^my goodness, there were so many rows of grape vines^
^jenn with her mom and her cousin^
^the shower was wine themed (of course) so jenn's future mother-in-law
made a cake to fit the theme^
^since i love to bake, my gift to jenn was baking themed: a cake sever, a cake pan, a whisk set, and a wooden spoon all from her registry. everyone was given a pink card in order to write down their favorite memory with the bride. there were no names allowed on the memory cards, and jenn had to read the memories in order to guess who each gift was from . . . but, before she even read my memory she guessed the gift was from me because she recognized my handwriting. (maybe i should have had ryan fill out the memory card!)^
