An April Fool's Day Bridal Shower

Note to self: when co-workers start acting suspicious, be suspicious.
& when you get called out to the shipping department for a question that didn't actually require you to come out to the shipping department two minutes before a potluck at work is supposed to begin, be suspicious.
& when everyone disappears at work and you can't find them? Be really suspicious.
But was I suspicious? Not at all. Go figure.
Y'all, my co-workers got me good on April Fool's Day this year and surprised me with a bridal shower at work!

All the girls were in on it and they even managed to get both my mom and Patrick's mom to the shower. Without me knowing. I'm the one that can't ever be surprised and I've gotten not one but TWO surprise parties in this whole engagement process. I'm totally ok with it!

There was lots of delicious food {including my favorite Blue Flour Bakery cookies!} and so many amazing presents.

The best part is that I might have been stalking my wedding registry the day before this party and rattling off all the things that had been purchased on it to my friend that sits next to me. I was sitting there in disbelief that so many things had been purchased 4 months in advance of the wedding and my friend is just laughing to herself because she knows why the things had been purchased so early.

I've got some pretty great coworkers who know how to very sneakily plan a surprise party!
