So Mr. Mojito's mom and sister told us right when we got engaged that they wanted to throw a shower for us. Since it would be Mr. Mojito's friends and family we instantly decided we would go with a "Co-Wed Cocktail" theme... mostly because you make it a foofoo Bridal shower no men are going to be easily dragged into this.
Mr. Mojijto's mom, dad, and sister went ALL OUT. The food was frickin' amazing let me tell you... FFIL Mojito is a bomb ass cook and he made all of the food. Just realized I went straight for a pic of the booze rather then the food...
There was sushi, coconut shrimp, chicken terriaki kabobs, cocktail weenies, cheese and crackers, fruit, and my person favorite... FMIL Mojito's famous Crab Cake Appetizer Bites... OMG OMG OMG. I could eat them hot, cold, whatever... they never get old. For drinks they had different wines, champagne and soda as well as spa water, mojitos (of course!), and mai tais!
After lots of eating and drinking we decided it was time to open up gifts. Because Mr. Mojito's sister wanted to have at least one game she did gift bingo where everyone had a bingo card and they marked it off if I opened a specific gift... surprisingly I think the guys were into it more then the girls. That was the only game we did bc they knew guys weren't into the shower game thing which was perfect to me.
I have no idea what was so funny. We have funny guests I guess. I don't remember anything funny happening about that picture... although we did already get it like two presents before opening it. Whoops, thanks Target. When I went online to check too it said "Requested: 1, Received: 2" -- TARGET FAIL.
Other then that we just took some pictures with some of our bridal party that was able to make it to the shower (shoutout to GM-Matt and BM-Lauren who came from AZ!)
Pretty sure Brad is making fun of me for ALWAYS putting my hand on my hip in pictures...
Last Thursday my office through me a work shower and we got some more lovely things off of our registries. That was four showers, whew... glad those are over!
Tomorrow I have off work for good 'ol Cesar Chavez Day (pretty sure TONS of you don't get that holiday right?) so Mama Mojito and I are heading down to Newport to meet up at the yacht with our coordinator and all of our vendors to just basically finalize everything. I think tomorrow will do one of two things...
1) Stress me out even more.
2) Make me feel accomplished and at ease.
Let's hope for the latter. It's almost hump day ladies... enjoy your week!
