Mexican Fiesta Bridal Shower

Saturday was my bridal shower. My best friend and Matron of Honor, Tracy threw the party for me with the help of my mom and sister. Since Joshua and I are going on a cruise to Ensenada, Mexico Tracy cooked up an amazing party with a Mexican theme. She paid attention to the tiniest details including the invitations!

How cleaver of her to use my face right on the front of the invitation. She, my mom and sister showed up at my house around 10:30 and were quick to rush me out so I wouldn't be tempted to help set up.

When I returned home my downstairs was transformed! A blend of music set the mood as well as the great decorations. There was even a slide show of me on the TV!

The yummy food was catered by Qudoba, along with homemade mexican wedding cookies, and homemade truffles and chili-chocolates! My mom made margaritas and Tracy created sangria with chunks of fresh fruit to garnish!

Shower games included a raffle, which Kelly won.

A 20 question quiz about Josh and me; naturally my sister was the winner. And a purfume making contest, which I judged and Sandi won!

The perfume doubled as a neat favor for each guest, not to mention the great flowers hair clips that Tracy made by hand!

No bridal shower would be complete without the bride becoming completly embarassed! If you know me, then you know how easily red I become. My mom filled my gift box full of individual personal lube, which I had to move out of the way before I found the actual gift, a road map of California and a picture of Six Flags, which represented the tickets my parents bought us toward our honeymoon registry.

The embarassment didn't stop there as I open gifts from my sister which included lacy thongs in my wedding colors and foreplay bathsalts!

I was very touched by my guests' thoughtful gifts. Many people contributed to our honeymoon registry, which will help Joshua and I have a wonderful honeymoon!

The party went so well and I am forever greatful to my wonderful MOH Tracy. Not only for the wonderful things she has done as my matron of honor, but for introducing me to Joshua in the first place. No one could ask for a better friend!
