I had a blast at my shower! It was pretty laid back, and even though I hate opening gifts in front of people, it worked out pretty well, especially when people left early, so I had less of an audience ;). Good times.

Steve, the moms, and I arrived at the campus, and only Shannon and Kathie (the party organizers) were in the room. I'm glad that we got there before everyone else so that I wouldn't have to feel a million sets of eyes on me! We got settled into our seats, and people slowly starting filing in. At capacity, we had 23 people there, so it was a good crowd. Steve and I said hi to everyone, and introduced everyone to our moms. I thought it was so nice for the ladies to invite our moms as guests of honor too.

Shannon started everything off with some games, and then it was time to eat! Steve's boss, Toni, made this phenomenal chicken, and his co-worker Dorothy made some really tasty mashed potatoes. I also piled on a small spinach salad, some carrot sticks, some fruit, and some jicama, yum!

After everyone ate, it was my "favorite" time, time to open gifts! Below is a link to the photo album, since my mom took a good handful of pictures. However, I will post some of them here, along with groupings of everything that we got. I'm amazed at the generosity of this group, it was so wonderful!
