as for the second shower of the weekend, it was great too. i think kylah was happy with it. she got lots and lots of things, including three sets of her vera wang silverware and a set of her fabulous ralph lauren paisley china. the success of the shower should surely be credited to jenny, kylah's other matron of honor. she's the gorgeous blond one you see in one of the photos here with kylah. she is so talented and such a good friend to kylah -- she did a great job. the food was great. the cake was great. and besides the fact that i put "i feel lucky" on the background music CD - total mind loss there for a minute -- everything seemed to go smoothly. we also had lots of help from the ladies of san angelo first assembly on the super yummy food. delana looked gorgeous (unfortunately, i don't have any good photos) as well. she's such a pretty mother of the bride. most of all, kylah was beautiful. she was glowing, and i'll tell you a cute story. she was opening one of her sets of silverware when michael (her fiance) walked in, summoned to help load the presents and take them home. she was trying to put it back together and the box has a slide-in wrap around it. she was just clumsily smashing it down on top of the box (as if it was a lid) because she got flustered that her handsome husband-to-be just came in and flashed her an "i love you more than life" smile. it was so sweet. they're so in love. i can't wait for their wedding. it's going to be so perfect. again, i don't know how i got so lucky to have ended up with such an amazing family.
