Bridal Shower Recap - Gifts

*Be forewarned... This is a VERY picture heavy post of me opening up shower gifts... 
Now you know... haha

I received some of the MOST AMAZING gifts at my bridal shower!
The shower theme was based on helping me stock up my kitchen and pantry.
And in all seriousness... The lovely ladies that came really helped me stock up!!!

Apples Kitchen Sign
 My KITCHEN theme is apples, which the girls shared in the invitations. 
They also included an apple recipe card so that each invitee could bring back their favorite recipe to share with me! 

Reading the title of one of the recipes I received...
 Some of the AMAZING recipes that I received were:
*Banana Bread
*Beef Stroganoff
*Peach Cobbler
*Pumpkin Bread
*Hawaiian Meat Balls
*Tater tot Casserole
*Chicken Enchiladas
*AND SO MANY MORE!!!

Sandy even wrapped my gifts in daisy paper! (my wedding flowers!)
 I was nervous about sitting up there in front of everyone opening presents... but it was fun!
My maid, Meghan Jo handed me presents to open and recorded what they were and who they were from. (SO useful for writing thank you notes after!!!)
And my sister-in-law, Arina collected the discarded wrapping paper. :) 
We had a nice system!

Jewelry received from Mr. M's sweet little cousin Miss Hailey!
 The gifts and cards were so thoughtful and I am so blessed to have received so many nice things and thoughts from our loved ones! 
And let's just say my KITCHEN and Mr. M's TUMMY thanks everyone for all cookware, dishes, serve ware, decorations and of course RECIPES!!!

Yeah... I have several of these doofie pictures of me showing off my gifts... I was EXCITED... haha!

How adorable are these little ceramic measuring cups!!

Marilyn even wrapped her gift with zebra ribbon... She knows my love of zebra! :) 
Again, because I can't say it enough, thanks SO much to everyone who came and celebrated my first bridal shower with me! 
And thanks to Meg and Brianne for putting on a GREAT time!!

Stay tuned for my recap of the games we played and the hostess gifts I gave the girls... 
As well as a highly edited recap of the after party... ;)
