Surprise Wedding Shower at Mon Ami Gabi!

SURPRISE! Yesterday was Jenny’s surprise wedding shower at Mon Ami Gabi in Oak Brook!

Me and Jenny at her surprise wedding shower at Mon Ami Gabi

We were so afraid that she knew about it (since someone apparently sent her a gift in the mail apologizing for not being able to make it to the shower) but she was totally surprised!

We held the bridal shower at Mon Ami Gabi, a French restaurant in Oak Brook in anticipation of Jenny and Adam getting married. The hardest part was figuring out how to get Jenny there. Luckily Adam found a gift certificate Jenny had to Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants so he convinced her to use it and that they should try that restaurant. When she walked in to the room she was totally shocked! The whole event went really well.

We ate. A lot. The menu there is awesome:
• Baked Goat Cheese & Tomato on Garlic Toast
• Salade Maison with and Herb Vinaigrette
• Chicken & Brie Sandwich with Caramelized Onion & Apple
• Classic Quiche Lorraine (the BEST quiche I have ever had)
• Sauteed Spinach & Brie Crepes
• Pommes Frites
• Crème Brulee
• Profiterole
Chocolate Mousse

The food was served family style so, yes, we all got to eat all of that. Yay! If you add in the cake we brought, we got four desserts!!!!

After everyone ate, we played some bridal bingo, then Jenny opened presents. She got pretty much her whole registry plus a lot more. I got Jenny her bathroom garbage can and some towels and soaps and such (towels for a shower, I’m so corny). Unfortunately Target never took it off the registry so she got two others of that garbage can. 🙁 She got so much, her soon to have apartment was overflowing. Oh, and Sherry made a kickass bridal bow bouquet for Jenny out of all the bows on the wedding shower gifts.

The surprise wedding shower at Mon Ami Gabi Oak Brook went amazingly well and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the food and Jenny was really happy so all the sneaking around was so worth it. Yay for surprise wedding showers!!

Congratulations Jenny and Adam!

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
