Our couple's shower

I was so lucky to have 2 showers thrown for me (and Jon) during our engagement. My bridesmaids threw us a super fun skull themed couples shower full of great food, beer and what else....corn hole! This shower was at the end of November (and our first shower) so it was fun to start getting gifts off of our registry!



They made Jon wear a "ball and chain" and I had to sport a sweet dia de los muertos veil....


I was blind folded and had to feel each of the male guests' wrist and guess which one was Jon's. Of course I guessed wrong...I was SO sure that my brother in law's wrist was Jon's. I think I had just said "this is definitely not Jon" in the pic below...


Jon must have a higher IQ than me, he got mine right.


Here is Jacob and Cole, the winner's of the corn hole tournament (check out that gold corn shaped trophy)


Unfortunately Jon and I got "iced" while opening gifts. If you aren't in the loop on what "icing" is, it is when someone hides a Smirnoff Ice somewhere and when you find it, you have to drop down to one knee and drain it. Disgusting. 


Here I am with the wonderful hostesses/my bridesmaids
