The Lubbock Shower

The weekend after our surprise "Date Night" shower, Hannah and Rachel threw me a bridal shower! I was able to invite all of my Lubbock friends, and some of Matt's family who live nearby. We all had a great time. 

Here I am with the sweet hostesses, Hannah and Rachel! 

Look at the beautiful spread of goodies they made for us! 

Sister Curtis, a missionary for our church, who volunteers at the Institute in Lubbock made this gift for me! It has a picture of the Dallas Temple (where Matt and I will be married), the Lubbock Temple (where we will be living and attending the temple for at least a year and half), and some teachings about marriage and the family from latter-day prophets. I just LOVE this and can't wait to put it up in our home!

Matt's Grandma got me the things necessary to make homemade tortillas (my favorite!) as well as many other Mexican dishes, I can't wait to get started on these things! Matt's family got a kick out of watching me open this gift! 

One of Mom's gifts was a set of pretty towels with a "T" on them for our home. I am excited (although it will be strange!) to change my name.

The week before the shower, Hannah asked me if she could make me a shadow box with the letters Matt wrote and then gave me during the proposal night, and the ring box! I am SO excited about how it turned out, she did a fabulous job! 

Some of Matt's family: Aunt Lili, his Mom, me, Grandma Mary, Bella, and Aunt Helen.
My sweet Mom and me. 

These are my bridesmaids (except Julia!!) Rachel, Hannah, me, Chrystal, and K'Lann. I love these girls!
