i had a bridal shower this weekend! admittedly, i was kind of nervous beforehand. wearing one of those girdle-type undershirts didn't help, either, but i haven't been to a party thrown for me in oh, about ten years. i'm always nervous that it will be a weird, awkward event where no one talks and we all sit around making terrible small talk. in fact, it's safe to say that i worry about that 75% of the time in general. in any case, i shouldn't have spazzed out, it was awesome. i was (am) overwhelmed with the kindness of my friends and family. i didn't just get a lot of awesome presents (although I DID), i had a great day with people i love, and ate too much cake. can a girl ask for more? i think not.
also, i'd like for everyone to know that my favorite sandwich EVER is as follows: ham, brie and fig jam on baguette. it's been my favorite sandwich for years now, but i want you to know about it because it's the greatest thing on earth. sweet and salty and creamy, crammed between two slices of chewy bread. delightful!
