Bridal Brunch in Muscle Shoals

Well, we had my hometown Bridal Brunch this past Saturday in Muscle Shoals, AL at my Aunt Pam's house. Everything was just lovely, and so many friends and family members traveled a long way to attend. I really felt special. Aunt Pam and Aunt Donna put so much work into everything (the food was FABULOUS), thank you both so much!!

The spread of wonderful brunch food

A photo of all the Trousdale ladies (minus Erika who couldn't come). We are such a goodlooking family!!

Mom's 3rd cousin, Trudy and her mother Celestine came from Anniston, AL.

There was a tissue paper bride contest. Rachel and Jennifer volunteered to be the models and I was the judge. Rachel won for her fabulous ensamble of butt bows!!

Jennifer is lovely though...

Matt and I received some wonderful gifts and it was so great to see everyone. We are truly blessed with amazing friends and families. We are looking forward to our wedding ONE MONTH FROM TODAY!!!!

Rubber Ducky, you're the one!!!

I just can't help but post this picture. This is our godson Joshua. He seems to really enjoy bathtime and his rubber ducky. How cute is he????

Beautiful Bridal Tea and Fabulous Friends!!!

I promised to post some pictures of the fabulous bridal tea hosted by Brenda (my godmother), Ashley (bridesmaid), and Meredith (one of two maids of honor). It was hosted at Meredith's house and everything they put together was just beautiful. Matt and I received lots of lovely gifts from our registry, and a couple of really special sentimental ones too. Here are some pictures from the shower.

The spread!! The champagne punch was fabulous!!!

The lovely hostesses and me (R-L: Ashley, Meredith, Jill, and Brenda)

This is Sweetpea; she was a "behind the scenes" hostess (so was her Mommy Lauren)

This is Tatum (Tater-bug, Tater-tot); she was also a "behind the scenes" hostess. Even though she is quite the nervous pooch, she was very well behaved!!

Mom and me, isn't this a good picture???

Mother of the Bride Jan, bride Jill, Future-Mother-in-Law Lisa
