My Sister is Getting Married! Bridal Shower Edition!

My younger sister is getting married!!! I'm beyond excited for her and her future husband. The wedding is about 5 weeks away! That seems so close, yet so far!

A few weeks ago we hosted her Bridal Shower. I believe it was enjoyed by all...except Amy's phone incident. Sorry Amy! Overall it was a great time! My duties included assisting with the games and of course, making dessert. No biggie lol.

So here I wanted to share some of the activities we had and maybe it will help someone else out that's planning a shower.

Games:

  1. Put A Ring On It
  2. Bridal Bingo
  3. Who Knows the Bride Best?
  4. Kissing Booth
  5. Who Has The Groom?
  6. Pass the Gift
We also had a date night idea jar. We had everyone to write ideas for dates on Popsicle sticks and presented it to her in a mason jar.




   




Put a ring on it was simple. Each guest was given a fake bling ring. We purchased them from Party City. If anyone said "Bride" their ring was taken. The person with the most rings at the end of the shower won. Except we had to switch it up to make it more difficult because no one said Bride! So we changed it to words that begin with the letter "S" and had a winner.
Put A Ring On It Winner!
Bridal Bingo was fun. Guests filled in a BINGO card with gifts they thought (knew) the bride would receive. The first to get BINGO won. We had 3 winners.

For the Who Has The Groom Game, I found a template on The Wedding Chicks of the tuxedos and then I printed out a bunch of pictures of guys (some gorgeous, some not) and 1 picture of the groom. I cut and pasted the heads of said men on the tuxedos and put each one in an envelope. We passed the envelopes out to each guest and told them when to open them. The guest with the groom won the prize. I had intended to tape them under each chair, but ran out of time.
Who Has The Groom?

 Who knows the bride best was a list of questions that we had Sherise to fill in. Whomever had the most correct answers won. None of us felt like we knew her very well and it was hilarious!

The Kissing Booth was a mason jar full of Hershey's Kisses. The person to come closest to the correct number of kisses won the jar.

Pass the gift was an interesting little twist. We had a gift in a box. It was a gift card for Dollar Tree. It was passed around as Sherise opened gifts. Every time she opened something that contained the color RED it was passed to the right. When all the gifts were opened, the person holding the box won.

We held the shower at California Dreaming (great food) so that none of us would have to cook...with the exception of me baking lol.

The bridal party all wore white and the theme for the desserts was "All White Everything!"

The dessert table included white cake pops, white candy coated pretzel rods, vanilla cupcakes with vanilla bean buttercream, and white chocolate cookies.

We also had popcorn from Popology in Baton Rouge, LA as favors.

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
