The second shower was in August and was thrown by a mother-daughter duo from church. This shower had a potato theme and it was carried out so beautifully. There were Mr. Potato Heads placed around their home (I collect these guys) and guests brought me gifts along a potato theme, as well. Brad and I received potato chips and chip clips, actual potatoes with a microwave bag to make baked potatoes, and delicious recipes.
From the August shower. Look at the beautiful table!

From the July shower. Brad and his nephew showed up with flowers and a "training dog" for me.

From the July shower. Check out all of the people in my living room! It did get a little warm...
I am not one for being the center of attention, but weddings don't care about that. I was a little uncomfortable with having a fuss over me (and Brad!) and all the gifts, but I loved being surrounded by people I love and eating way too much delicious food. Plus, planning a wedding loses its fun real quick and a shower or two helps bring back the excitement over getting to marry someone you love dearly.
