McKinzie wasn't sure she wanted a bridal shower. I was fine either way. She knew that if she wanted one that I would need to plan it and she knew I was already stretched. When I realized she was leaning toward having it I called a friend for help. Marcia had mentioned in passing that she would like to do one for her, then she went on vacation. So instead of waiting for her return I called another friend, Ruth, for help. I have some wonderful friends. Many women came through for us and put together a great shower.
Marcia even made this cute shirt for Kinzie to wear. I think I counted around 27 people in attendance. The food was yummy. The games were fun and simple. The wide variety of gifts were great!
With my gift I had a card that McKinzie read aloud. It read something like, "I know that you feel I've been a hard nose about modesty. (This is where she rolled her eyes.) I think I've painted myself into a corner. I hope you like what I bought you for your wedding night." She was way scared to look in the bag. When she pulled it out everyone couldn't control the laughter. I gave her a floral, flannel, nightgown/robe. One woman at the shower asked if I sewed the bottom closed. :D I hadn't thought of that! Don't worry, I also gave her something "fun" for a newlywed. ;)
