Shelby and George's Engagement Party

Although they won't be getting married until next October I hosted an engagement party for my oldest daughter and her fiancee on Saturday.  It was an opportunity for the two families to meet, greet, mingle, and eat.

Because Shelby and George love all things superhero, I went with that theme.  Batman was top dog, with other superheros seen throughout the room.  I wouldn't say it was Pinterest worthy but I was pretty impressed that it all came together so well.

I really like this guy so I'm hoping she sticks with him.  It was easy to talk to his family as well, and it didn't seem awkward.  I wish I would have gotten more pics of the decor and people there but it's too late now.

George's family knew who I was from the get-go.  Everyone swears me and Shelby look alike so I suppose there's no denying her!

Being the mother of the bride and maid-of-honor is going to cause a few gray hairs but I'm honored.  Now that the engagement party's done, it's time to plan a wedding!!

Everyone is right, you both definitely look quite alike. Mini me indeed! Congratulations to your daughter and your whole family on such an exciting event. It looks like you threw quite the heroic engagement party *wink wink* Now on to the next big thing: Wedding planning!
