Our Toilet Paper Bride

As many of you know, George's son Jon is getting married in a few weeks. 2 weeks ago, Sara and I went to Nikki's bridal shower. It was a lot of fun and Nikki got a lot of really nice gifts, including 3 waffle makers. LOL I know she said she loves waffles but I am not so sure she needs 3. A couple of them have been exchanged for something else and she now has everything she could possibly need and want.

We played a few games at the shower and one of them was Kitchen Bingo. I didn't come close to winning that but Sara did and took home a nice gift bag with some shower gel and body lotion. We also had to guess how many Hershey kisses were in a jar. Again, not even close but the game may have been rigged because George was seen eating Hershey kisses before we actually started guessing.

My favorite game though was Toilet Paper Bride. We broke up into 4 groups of 4 and each group got one roll of toilet paper and 5 minutes to choose a member of their group and dress them up. My sister in law Diane and I selected Sara as our model but we weren't very creative in dressing her. Sara was the only one who had a garter though. In fact, she got the prize for being the trashiest bride. LOL Oh well, it was fun and we had a really good time.
Below are some pics of our trashy bride.

She couldn't stop laughing

The 4 finalists. The girl in the red shirt was the winner.

I must of missed the memo saying today was toilet paper blog entry day.

Sara looks like she had a blast - and is so happy looking! Gosh that smile of her's kills me everytime I see it... add the garter to it - and I'm set for a heart attack. :)

Looks like it was a fun party. Never heard of that toilet paper game before. (yep, now we know who toilet papered the trees around here)

Best wishes to Jon and Nikki.

LOL!!! I woulda voted for the "trashy bride" just because she had the guts to wear that garter!

LOL I do believe you two could use some design classes...
What a riot. I usually don't like playing games at showers but the ones you guys did sound like fun.

Sara looked like she was having fun. Trashy bride, huh? Keep that in mind whenever she decides to get married. You can make it a theme at her shower, lol.
