Michigan Bridal Shower

My new mother-in-law and sisters-in-law threw a couple's bridal shower for us in Blissfield, Mi on Saturday night. They put a lot of time into making tons of great food, decorating and putting on a fabulous event for us. Along with all of Dana's family, both of my parents and their significant others were there as well. It was the first time all of the parenst met. It was so great to have my parents there with me.

I got to meet all of Dana's family, which I find is a little bigger than my own, and it was so much fun! Dana got to see people he hadn't seen in years, including old friends and people he use to work with. I got to mingle with the family and finally put faces to all the names I hear about. His family is so wonderful that it was hard to think I was just meeting everyone for the first time, they have a way that made me feel so welcoming that I felt like they were already my own family. That has got to mean something good, right? :)

To add to the entertainment, Heather played a few games with the crowd. Dana and I were involved in a couple of them. The first game involved blindfolding Dana and then lining up a bunch of women on chairs, including myself and he had to feel everyone's forearm and pick which one was me. I was nervous for him, but without hesitation, he chose me!! After that, the roles were reversed and I had to feel a bunch of guys calves and figure out which was Dana. I was so nervous because that would be one part of the body I've never paid any attention to. But, to my discovery, I sure knew who my man was....I got it right too! If you could've seen the look on Dana's face. He said "Honey, how did you know?" in complete suprise and excitement. I don't know how to describe it, but I just knew!!! It felt like the best calf in the bunch. heehehe

Overall, it was a great turn out, everyone was very generous and included alot of gift cards and money for us. We appreciate every dollar, every gift, and everyone who came to celebrate!!
