Wedding Shower and the Monster Book of Monsters

So, I haven't a cool story to share with y'all about why I've been completely MIA this week. Honestly, I've been overwhelmed with the load of responsibilities that I have self-dumped in my own lap to take care of and unfortunately, they have caused me to pack up the blog in a nice (bubble wrap-padded, of course) little box and place it in the backseat of my Honda Accord. Litterally. In the form of my computer. And ya know what, the whole thing has made me right sad. I've been thinking about you guys and missing your sweet words and weird stories. And so it stands, I really like you as friends. Really, really. As they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder. So here I sit. With my ratty, third-day {+} hair in tangles, glasses on the tip of my nose, still wearing my pajamas, nails unpainted, with my stack of textbooks sitting in the corner, gnashing their angry teeth in my direction, nagging me about reading for (tomorrow's!!!) approaching classes, looking more and more like the Monster Book of Monsters {fellow nerds, catch the Harry Potter reference. Gotta represent.} by the second. Blogging pictures of the bridal shower we threw yesterday as evidence of the fact that I have been working away at something. Me and mommy crafted all of the graphics and most of the yummies, logging many man (lady?) hours on the job, with a big scoop of help from our lovely, flower-talented friend, Mrs. Amy. I hope these will suffice. Until tomorrow. When I do, in fact, have to get dressed. And will hopefully photo-document the occasion for you all.

Oh and one last bit, these aren't remotely edited. Just pretend they look like they came out of Southern Living for me. K?

Love,

Ramsey

Ramsey, this turned out fabulously. I think my heart almost exploded with joy (... and lets be real, jealousy) over the americana punch bowl and cups!
