We hung out with my parents and then headed over to the Calhoun house to hang out with Trey's parents. Friday afternoon Ella and I headed over to Sakura to have a bridesmaids luncheon. Ella was such a doll and all the girls loved her. I mean, they are my friends, so of course they did. Summer and Ella had a little bonding time and Ella was just snuggling with her. Summer was eating it up and just loves Ella.
Friday night Trey and I headed to the rehearsal and then to the dinner at the Women's Forum, but not before a few photos were taken.
And what would a picture of mom and dad be without the baby? Well, my mom made sure and get her in this one. She is looking at us thinking, "hmm...they are all dressed up, why aren't I?" Unfortunately, she had to stay home with my mom and dad. However, they were THRILLED to get to keep her for that long and have her all to themselves. They are so crazy about her!
And no, we really did not match on purpose. This was the only shirt Trey brought home (for the occasion) and I brought two dresses, but really did not want to wear the other one, so we matched. I am pretty sure everyone there that night reminded us of it too. The girls thought it was cute and I am sure the guys just considered themselves lucky that their wives didn't make them do it!
The rehearsal dinner was fun and the food was great; however, Heather and I got stuck at the kids table. Okay, so not really, but there was a whole table of bridesmaids and two random couples sitting with them (there was assigned seating) and then Heather and I got stuck at a table with three 17 year old girls and one 17 year old boy who wanted to talk about High School and were sneaking alcohol. Heather and I felt a little weird about it. Trey on the other hand did not care about because there was an open bar.
After the dinner I dropped Trey off and headed over to Summer's hotel room for a little lingerie shower. This is me, Heather, Paige and Kristen. I have known all of these girls for so long. Kristen was in my wedding party.
And these two girls are two of my best friends, Julie and Beth. I have known Beth since we were babies and just have so much fun when we are together. I miss them and don't get to see them as often as I used to. They both ADORE Ella and I just love to see them with her.
The night ended around midnight. We had such a good time, but the bride needed her rest before the big day! Which you will see tomorrow.
