good friends, good cake

guess what?! i'm still alive! i may not have any readers left sticking around after such a long post drought, but i'm finally back. its been a hectic week or two, and there's lots to share. it will be at least a month before we get any of the professional photos back, but there's plenty of other stuff in the meantime. (and if anyone out there reading this has pictures from the wedding, send them to me!!)

the saturday before the wedding, some of my good friends threw a bridal shower for me. since my family is scattered so far across the country, and because it was only one short week before the wedding, most of my relatives were unable to make it. i did have a handful of good friends that came, and even got a surprise visit from an old friend and my future mother and sister in law.

they drove all the way from upstate ny, just for the day!!


the always amazing jenny made a BEAUTIFUL wedding gown cake. it got rave reviews from all shower attendees. (check out her blog, there's a great picture of me preparing to cut the cake)

lemon cake with lemon curd and blueberry... mmmm

some shots of some of the lovely ladies in attendance. unfortunately i didn't get one of everybody, but i tried.

too cute :)

can't wait for baby pictures!

is she disgustingly lovely or what??

a huge thank you to ashley for hosting, and to jenny, sonja, and sara for helping out. and to everyone who came or who sent something for the scrapbook!

I was so excited to see a new post! I thought it might be a while before seeing you back into blogging! Thanks for the cake mention - maybe you and Ken will renew your vows next year and I can make another bride cake :) Have a safe drive to Texas!
