Couples Shower Recap!

We had a great time this weekend! The shower went amazing and everything turned out so good. If you would have seen me Friday night, in the ER mind you, you would not have thought this would be the case! My poor Beau was having some major stomach pains so we went to the doc to have it checked out. They drew blood and found out that his white blood cell count was very high, 17 to be exact. So the doc asked us to go to the ER and have an ultrasound done on his belly to make sure his organs, mainly appendix, was OK. Well we waited and waited and waited and after about 3 hours we decided to go home. He hadn't been in pain for several hours and he was getting very mad (and grouchy) about how long we had set there so we went home. He feels fine still so I'm not sure what it was. But as you can imagine, I was freaking out! I hadn't finished cleaning yet and we didn't get home until 10 that night!! After sitting in the ER waiting room for 3 hours with their bright lights I came down with one of the worst migraines ever! I went home, tried to fall asleep, took a quick shower and cleaned for the next 2 hours. I think I finally got in bed at 2ish. I was so thankful that the next morning Lauren and Ryan came over early to help us finish up on all the food and cleaning! I don't think we would have been able to get it all done if it wasn't for them!! Aside from the ER drama, the shower went perfect! I knew it would be great, but I was so happy with the way everything turned out. Everything looked so perfect and put together and the food was fabulous! I told Lauren that we might need to be professional shower hosters! ;) Here are some pics of the evening:

All in all, it was a perfect evening! I had the best time and I can't wait for Mark and Alison's wedding this April! It's hard to imagine that our group of friends are almost all married off!! Next we'll be having baby showers...haha!
