Saturday evening i hosted a fancy lingerie shower for my friend Mre who is getting married this coming weekend. tons of lovely ladies flooded into our tiny apartment and showered Mre with thrills and frills. she was showered well with lots of practical bras and undies, several beautiful and impractical pieces she'll only wear for a minute or two (tmi?) and loads of love.
we played a smashing game of "whose lingerie is it?". the game goes something like this - as guests enter they hang one of their own bras and one pair of their unders on the "clothes line". once everyone has arrived the garments are taken down, collected, and given to the bride. the bride has to decipher which bra and panty belong to which lady. if she guesses right, she gets to open their gift. the game continues until everyone is guessed and all gifts are opend. Mre won with 100% accuracy. . . she really knows her friends' bodies. . .
my Mom was an incredible second set of hands to me all day as we prepared tomato basil soup with grilled cheese skewers, a fiesta bean salsa (that will become a frequent), fresh fruit with cream cheese sauce, homemade cake (design - c/o this cake), fruit infused tea and pineapple punch.
come to find out, i really enjoy opening our home to guests and letting them wander around room-to-room looking at all our "weird" decor but, i'm far too awkward to host a shower. . . maybe shower hosting is a quality i'll grow into but for now, i'm keeping it minimal (my anxiety skyrocketed!) good thing i really love you Mre (you've got me wrapped around your finger. . . )
