Bridal Shower Part 1: Prep Time

For the past couple months or so, myself along with two other wonderful ladies, Erica and Lauren T., have been planning a gorgeous awesome amazing Bridal Shower for the one and only Lauren Austin!  It has been so much fun planning with them and I am so grateful that they were able to help out! I cannot thank them enough!

Like most parties, the prep was one of the hardest parts.  Figuring out the invitations, the location, the people, the food, the gifts, the decorations...all of it took a lot of time and planning.  But I must say again it was fun and I loved it!

The night before the shower, Erica and I were doing some last minute crafts and making some food.  We wanted to make some Puppy Chow, which is not the easiest thing to make in the dorm.  Needless to say we laughed quite a bit.  It started off with just melting the chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave. Then when we added the chex, the bowl ended up being too small.  After finally coating everything in chocolate and peanut butter we then had to coat with powder sugar.  Well we didn't want to make a huge mess so what did we do? We got in the shower.  We laughed SO STINKING HARD!!! Best thing I have ever done to make food!
Erica "measuring" out the peanut butter.  BTW we didn't have measuring cups either! It was all done by eye sight and guessing!

The next morning we woke up bright and early to set up the shower.  Pat and Lee Magness, wonderful Milligan professors, we so nice and allowed us to have the shower at their home! They were so welcoming and helpful, and we could not thank them enough for their generosity!

After a couple hours of prep we were ready to go and the guests were arriving!  We had a blast and I cannot wait to share the rest!! Here is a little sneak peak of what is to come!
