Elaine & Ty's Sacramento Shower

Elaine and Ty are getting married in less than 2 month. A few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to attend a beautiful shower Elaine's friends threw for them at her friends Marisa and Mario's house.

The theme was Black and White, which meant that we all had to wear black and white clothing. Her friends said that, when they think of Elaine....they think of these colors because she is almost always wearing black and white. Hey....when looking in my closet I see a lot of black and white too....so it wasn't hard for me to throw an outfit together.

Here are a few pictures I took of the beautiful evening. Elaine and Ty are lucky to have such wonderful and supportive friends in their lives and we are lucky to have Elaine and Ty in ours!

On our way up to Sacramento for the shower...(Nana Mary went with us)

Elaine and Ty and their friends all said some very nice words and gave some toasts...

Dancing....

More dancing (they were pretending to be in Jr. High)

Opening gifts....Ty was particularly excited about this one! However I think Gabby and Ana were horrified! ;)

....oh...got one of me and my kids!! (red eye or not...I love it!)

The bride to be and ME!

Elaine, Mary and I...
