As many of us know, irishrosegrower, Maureen, is getting re-hitched, smiles. She is remarrying her ex-husband after an 11 year seperation! Her son is just thrilled!
I would love to host this shower for her, and you all are invited!
She will be gone for a short period of time this month, so I would like for her gifts to arrive during March.
This is obviously a very special time in her life, so let's celebrate!
R.S.V.P. by February 24th here please.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Congrat's Maureen~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is just the sweetest thing. Tina, you are such a thoughtful lady! I am trully touched by you. And Dancing moons, Jess, Suebo and giverny4me - you are all such good sports to join in on this. I feel blessed to have met Tina and you nice ladies. I don't remember anyone doing anything so nice for me.

Tina, my prayers are with you and your husband. I hope he is recovering. Please update me when you have a chance, I'm worried for you guys.

Sorry for the MIA ladies!
Here is what I would like to do.
I would like for Mrs! Maureen to post a wish list of things to send the "New Bride"!
In each box, I would like there to be a special card for the bride!
I want this to be FUNtabulous time ladies! Get in here and chit chat, tell jokes, make this a wonderful time for Mrs! Maureen! I know she has already tied the knot, so, let's make the shipping date April 1st! and pack it full of fun Spring item's and of course item's from Maureen's wish list.

Maureen, I am happy for you and I send you lot's and lot's of love my sweet and dear friend.

Let's get this party started!

RE: NEW: You're invited to a Bridal Shower! (irishrosegrower)

Trish, I would love to hear that story ;-)

My only wish list is for plants and flowers.
I don't want anyone to have to go out and buy something, so maybe you can all send me a plant from your yard?

Here's a few things I'm lusting after..

Casablanca lily or other fragrant lilys
fruit bushes (blueberry/raspberry)
fragrant flowers
any vine/plants that attract hummingbirds
or any pretty flower from your yard that you want to share.

You guys are the best.

I'm so grateful to have nice friends like you guys.

p.s. Hubby's name is Doug

and my son Michael is not coming with us. WE are taking a long weekend, leaving Friday a.m. getting married on Saturday and coming back Monday evening. A couple of months later we are then taking a family vacation camping at Strawberry Park (have you been their Trish, it's in CT??).

If you haven't received Maureens address from me, please e-mail me and I will respond with it.

Ok....MAUREEN?..now another question, what else besides plants, and bulbs, etc...?? I am such a pain!!, stuff for the happy couple, Oils, Bubbles, etc..Oops, sorry! LOL!!....
no really give us some more ideas!


 o
RE: NEW: You're invited to a Bridal Shower! (irishrosegrower)

HI Trish. You are so funny! I like scented candles. Nice oils would be welcome of course. and the only one who takes baths is my son (and he loves bubbles in the bath :-)

I've just requested a signature thingy. My questions is this, I assume I save it to photobucket, right? So how do I post it to my posts each time? Do I have to keep going into photobucket and copying and pasting it? There must be an easier way ??

Ladies, have a great day. Busy day here. I'm off to clean my house (if I ever get off the computer :-), then nails done at 10:00, shop for brother and nieces birthday gifts, take my son to the library to do research, then my brothers house for birthday cake at 6:00. A great day ahead.

Hi gals. Trish, I'm sorry I didn't see your posts until today, I thought this thread was gone...

I am so happy it is spring myself! Daffs are finally open. I like the pic of you smelling your first spring bloom.

Jess sent me a lovely package from bath & body works with my favorite fragrance --sweet pea--. It is so nice, has body spray, bubble bath, gel, hand lotion, etc. it's in a pretty green ceramic planter too!

Jess == you are very thoughtful and this was very sweet of you to do. Thanks a bunch.

Trish - thanks for the iris. Glad it's warming up for you. It did start to warm up here, then yesterday the rain turned to snow for a while ??? it's arpril isn't it?

Hugs
Maureen

RE: NEW: You're invited to a Bridal Shower! (irishrosegrower)

RE: NEW: You're invited to a Bridal Shower! (irishrosegrower)

Vanille, I don't know you, and I don't know Maureen either, but I have to say that I would have thought it best to have left that comment out. Even if you meant it kindly, why would that be a comment made on the first day you are a member of GW? If your statement is true, I would think that leaving this particular thread alone and leaving the comment unsaid would be much better. The goal of this forum is to be friendly. And since this thread is two years old, you had to have dug to come up with it.

How unkind and uncalled for.

Kathy
