Last weekend I went to my friend Paula’s bridal shower. Paula and I have been friends since high school. We actually both worked at JC Penney’s: she was on the first floor in juniors’, I was on the second floor in children’s. I used to always be like “Oh, let me run those returns back downstairs!” and then I would loiter by her cash register until we got yelled at. After high school, we both went to Ohio State and have remained friends. So when she asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding I was like “Heck yeah!”
Our other high school friend and the co-Maid of Honor Grace threw the party at her home. Her husband helped her prepare the food and they had a lovely picnic spread outside. The trees in their yard had all these cute old photos. Do you spot me with Paula at prom? Hint: I’m the one in the leopard dress.

Grace and Jon served lunch boxes so people could make their own sandwiches. I had the standard fare with chicken salad and a croissant, but there were also meat- and gluten-free options.
Me and Paula. Gingers unite!
The weather was perfect and it was a really great bridal shower. I pretty much wiped out and just wanted to take a nap on one of the quilts.
Been to any good bridal showers lately? Let me know in the comments!
