I just have to say that I have the BEST bridesmaids :)
After being up in NH for a wedding all weekend (more on that in a different post), I drove back to Mass on Sunday straight to my aunts house for my Bridal Shower!!
It was a pretty-pink-super-girly-delicious event!
I was first shuffled over to see the favors...oh my god the Favors!!! My amazing friend actually made mini wedding cakes!!!! Baked, frosted, boxed, and made little "B" tags for them! Everyone thought they were amazing and that she was insane for doing it hahaha!
They are delicious too!! There were some extras, so of course I took them. I have a couple in the freezer and 1 I'm working on in the fridge. I am so appreciative of all her hard work!
Then there was the food...the FOOD! I believe my wonderful roommate/bff/maid of honor was the organizer of the menu (amongst many other things), and she hit a home run by planning a Greek/Mediterranean inspired menu.
There were so many people to say hi to that I didn't get to eat too many appetizers (probably a good thing), but there was an amazing cheese platter, spinach dip, antipasto, pita chips with homemade hummus, and Caprese salad!!I'll just give the picture play-by-play

I have lots of pics from the wedding I went to this past weekend as well, but I think I overloaded this post enough haha.
