Honeymoon Shower : The Loot! (And last call for questions for my groom!)

We had our Honeymoon Shower yesterday and it was SOOO much fun!

Here is the background on the Honeymoon Shower. Our friends wanted to throw us a shower but we were already having two bridal showers and they really wanted to do a couples shower. They suggested a "Stock the Bar Party", but we just don't feel the need to have a fully stocked bar. What did we really need? Gifts from our honeymoon registry! So they agreed to host a Honeymoon Shower for us!

It was a huge success. We had friends from all parts of our lives show up - preschool, middle school, high school, college, grad school, family, etc etc. We had a pool party and bbq at our friends' house - so much fun.

And we made a killing. We received $500 in gifts toward our honeymoon! Plus a bunch of other fun gifts to enjoy on our honeymoon, including some slightly awkard ones from Super-Crafty Sister! Check out all the presents!

Wait until you see the photos of me opening the gifts - especially the awkward ones! Priceless. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, please submit your questions for my groom! The deadline is noon tomorrow and then he will be guest blogging with his answers! There have been some great questions so far - please keep them coming!


  1. Where did your groom go to school - from kindergarten on? Sorry, that's just what we ask in my family.

  2. I have never heard of this idea and I think it is so cool!

  3. You have such lovely friends, that's so cool!

    How about if money were no object, what would he want at the wedding (e.g. awesome band, an rocking car for the entrance, wedding at a beacfront resort)?
