Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

12.6.14: Pretty Little Things

Hello,dolls!! Hello, December!! πŸ™‚ So this time last year I was having the best time at my bridal shower. This year, we are looking forward to moving to our house!! After months and months of finding for the perfect one and dealing with the stages of getting the keys in our hands..we are finally just a step away.

December 6 last year was amazing. I remember feeling excited and nervous. Nervous because I will be opening presents in front of 25+ ladies! Meaning, I will be the center of attention which I am not used to haha.

Before I talk about the “bride to be” let me share with you some of the things that made my bridal shower extra special.

Just like this pretty sash that the interns gave me! πŸ™‚Β

Of course..since they’re men no one took photos (and A also forgot to serve the cupcakes that Mom baked for them!).

So I only have the plates and napkins that they used! haha
