A few weeks back I came home to a surprise envelope. It was an invitation to our wedding shower!
I originally didn’t think that I would even bother having a wedding shower since so few people that we invited are local and I didn’t really think it was necessary for people to fly out for it.
Needless to say, I was incredibly surprised!
The note stated that murders were occurring at the Museum of Science and we would have to go around the museum looking for clues as to the murderer. My amazing MOH had planned an afternoon scavenger hunt in one of my favorite locations in Boston! I have to say that it must be the most amazing idea ever!
We had originally scheduled it for mid-April, but due to the craziness it was rescheduled for this past weekend.
|Such a gorgeous day|
So on Saturday, we headed towards the MOS. There we were given a guide that we would use to find clues to decipher. It was fun and crazy to go running around the museum looking for clues. Though PBear and I have been to the museum many times (and even thought about having our wedding there at one point), there were so many things that we had never noticed before.
We found an adorable little pack rat.
|Oh there you are, hiding in the corner.|
And took our picture in front of the dinosaur.
|This is apparently my scary dinosaur impression. Intimidating hm?|
And ultimately solved the murder mystery at the museum.
It was a lot of fun.
After the hunt, we awkwardly got snacks and then opened presents.
|I am in love with pop containers.|
I want to thank my MOH for putting together such a wonderful event and to everyone who came from afar to be there that day! It was a beautiful and lovely afternoon with a group of friends I haven’t seen together in ages and a few new ones, too! It was really nice to see everyone and to see how much everyone had grown up. We’ve changed so much since college, and yet some things just never change.
It’s becoming more and more crazy to me that we are getting married in just a few short weeks. I can see already how my mind is shifting from the little details to the bigger picture—that it’s more about the people we love. I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone again together. It really is the people that make this all worth it.
Did you have a nontraditional shower? What did you do for yours?
