I had such a fun weekend! No stress, wedding dress fitting, house shopping, time with Mom, and a bridal shower! On Saturday, Zach's mom and sister hosted a beautiful bridal shower for me. I'm so excited to officially become part of the family and so blessed to have such great future in-laws. The first few pictures below are at the bridal shower; where we ate some really yummy Italian fixings, opened lovely gifts, and mingled! Thank you everyone who came out; it was so nice to have some lady time.

Afterwards, Mom and I headed back to Grand Rapids and stopped by a clothing swap. I had quite a few things that I have been meaning to donate or send to consignment shops, but I figured this would be way more fun. Met some really nice ladies and saw a few I already knew! I ended up walking away with two tops, a jacket, and a pretty scarf. Score! Of course we had to grab a few outfit shots once we got home...and after the humidity had had it's way with my hair. :)
This dress is actually one of my favorite thrift store finds. You can't tell from the pictures but it has a great semi peter pan collar and it is super lightweight. I was worried that the neckline was a tad low...but then I figured that I'm young and you only have so long to be able to pull off outfits like this before it becomes inappropriate.
Had to throw in a jumping picture. It was a swell weekend.
A bonus...we are going to be putting an offer on a house! Not sure if we'll get it, but if we do, I cannot wait to share details and my plans for renovating it. That will be the next project after the wedding. :)
