Finally, I put the calendar back in its original box and made a funny cover for the bride. We will present this to the bride after a shower game we will play on dream celebrity husbands.

My brother resembles Tiago Splitter so we put him on the cover. We also featured the Spurs as her favorite team, but she is a Mavericks fan. Hopefully, this will bring a few laughs out at the shower.
