As I mentioned last week, I ventured home to St. Louis this weekend to attend two, yes TWO, bridal showers and because I needed a little R & R (okay, a lot) after the rigors of my move to NYC. Of course, as soon as the landing gear on my plane descended, my throat felt scratchy and before I knew it, I was sick. How rude. This did not deter mountains of fun, though.

Mountains of fun AND fine dining. The showers were lovely. And my mother, sister and I toodled all over town in Susie’s Soul. We went to Ted Drewes, a St. Louis must. I drank lots of wine and learned all about the rules and regulations of bridal showers–it is SO IMPORTANT to put a lovely bow on your gift. Who knew?
