Memorial Day

On Memorial Day, my mommy, daddy, and I took a trip to Atlanta to see the Atlanta Braves play the Philadelphia Phillies. It was a day game and oh my word it was hot!!

Turner Field

We had great seats! Right behind the Braves dugout!

When Amber was alive, she loved the Braves so we went to games several times a year.  This was our first game without her sitting with us. She was definitely there in Spirit though! I think she protected us from getting hit by foul balls! Thanks Ber!

Me and mommy!
Look at her sunburned shoulder! Ouch!

Mommy and daddy!
They match! How cute!

The family minus Amber.
See that white shirt in mom's lap?
The guy that took this picture caught it and gave it to my mommy. 
 We like to think it was a blessing from Amber.

The Braves won the game!

Then the Beach Boys performed on the field.

We had a great Memorial Day!!

Bridal Portraits

Oh no! As I was uploading my post yesterday, I discovered this post that I had written months ago but never actually posted!! Oops!  Oh well, better late than never!! 

On May 17th, I had my bridal portraits taken. Mom and I loaded up the dresses (yes, I have two!) and headed off to Fort McClellan in Anniston to meet my photographer for pictures. It was so much fun but so hot! I may roast in that dress on the wedding day!! 

For pictures, my florist made a bouquet similar to the one I will carry at the wedding. It was just gorgeous and smelled wonderful! It was full of mini green hydrangeas, white hydrangeas, white freesia, white roses, and peonies!

Since I can't share pictures of the dresses, I can share pics of the bouquet! That's better than nothing!

Lingerie Shower

So I haven't blogged in quite a while, but now I am going to try to catch up!  This could be challenging!!

I really want to blog about my lingerie shower that was held in May. The shower was given by some of my bridesmaids and they did an outstanding job. I had so much fun!

The adorable invitation.
Purple and green to coordinate with the wedding colors.

We started the evening with dinner at one of my favorite local restaurants.

Me and some of the bridesmaids.
Lindsay, Caroline, Cameron, me, Audrey

Katie (another bridesmaid) and I.

Lauren and I.

Me and my mommy!

After dinner, we went to Caroline and Cameron's house for a dessert shower. All the girls brought the yummiest desserts! It was all sooo good! I am sure everything was fat free too! Haha!

Adorable bra and panty cookies!

The best chocolate things ever! I forgot what the are called...  Anyway, take note of the attention to detail here. The icing is in green! So cute!

Delicious strawberry creamcheese cake with a purple J!!

More desserts!! 
An oreo cookie ball, chocolate cranberry fudge, and chocolate covered strawberries!!

Margaritas to drink with precious "W" cups!!
More attention to detail to make me feel special!

Yet another thoughtful gesture! A "J" glass for me to drink from!
Love it!!!!

The girls ordered a "Future Mrs. Willis" sash for me to wear all night! How cute is that! And once again it was a perfect match to my wedding colors!!

Look at all the gifts!

The goodies inside the packages! Whoo hoo!

With the help of my bridesmaid Audrey, my hubby even sent a gift that night!  In fact, he sent two packages. One was an empty box from Victoria's Secret!! =) The second was a Victoria's Secret gift card! How sweet and thoughtful!

The whole night was soo much fun. I am so blessed to have such amazing friends! I wish I had a picture of everyone that was there to celebrate..  Everyone went above and beyond to make my lingerie shower memorable!  I love all of you girls and I simply cannot thank you enough!!
