April Showers... of Happiness!

A few weekends ago, my sisters & sister in-law threw me an amazing bridal shower! 

It was so pretty!

 My sisters made this video where they grilled my fiancé with questions like, 
"Is Emma a horder, I mean what is her biggest collection?"
& "What is the weirdest thing Emma owns?" answer- BARRY!
I got that one right! 

Felt a little like Alice in Wonderland in this big chair!

But every one I got wrong I had to eat a gum ball.
Had quite a mouth full by the end...

My beautiful maid of honor! 

It was so awesome to see all of the women in my life in one concentrated area, 
so much girl power! 

My sorority sisters! 

my Nonna

So many presents to open, 
still haven't gotten to all of them!

My maid of honor got me a beautiful handmade hanger with my soon-to-be new last name twisted into the wire for my wedding dress. SERIOUSLY beautiful! 

This is me pointing at my super creative sorority sisters for their crafty presents 

& my cousin got my this Fashionista sign, 

Even got some pretty Tiffany & Co glasses!

& my future in-laws got us some beautiful plates and glasses for our new house!
I opened a set & was then informed that the rest were already waiting at our house!

Then cake time!

The beautiful women in my life!

got $30 in my pocket... cause I can never stay on a budget...

It all started when I went to my house to clean out the treasures that the previous owners left: 
 This is going to be my walk in closet! 
& yes that furniture with the children on it is staying... just the way it is (minus the doll house top...)
it is too weird to change!

& I found these amazing tops:
Yes, you will  be washed and then put back in my closet, cause I am keepin' you.
already shoppin' in my own closet

I also had some toys to donate...
 So I went thrifting yesterday. 
I ended up getting all this + a pair of Limited grey pants for work!
for $30!
I LOVE thrifting!

I went thrifting in one of my favorite thrifted tops!
Raccoon print?

We played in the park after my little shopping spree...

The pug will use anything as a chin rest...
