The past few days have zoomed by so fast, but I enjoyed them so much. Some time ago (as when KW & Emily first started making wedding plans in August), she called me – at 8am Vegas time – to ask me if I would “host” her bachelorette party for her. That may sound like an odd request, but they are running off to get married alone, and she didn’t want it announce until closer to the date. She also didn’t want the traditional bachelorette party. I mean really, do you find hot, sweaty, slimy, stinky men at the male strip club attractive? No. And renting the limo and getting the bride so trashed she is puking for the rest of the night isn’t always so fun either.
Instead, Emily wanted everyone to come to her house, bring their tiaras and housepants, and we would play games, drink, and have silly girlie fun. A slumber party to send her off right, in the comfort of her own home. With (almost) everyone spending the night, they could drink without having to worry about driving home drunk. How fabulous is that?
So I spent a lot of time planning cheesy games that I later vetoed because I knew Emily didn’t want to play them, and one of them I was afraid would actually cause someone to blind her or something just as dangerous. I spent time grocery shopping for goodies and getting fun trinkets from Cindies (dicky sippers and sassy nametags, and her own personal blow up Willy that just wouldn’t get hard – er, firm.) I was even commended at the grocery store for us being such good responsible girls and partying at home instead of out on the town.
A fabulous time was had by all, and we were able to send Emily off in style. We drank, we ate, there was was way too much food, fantastic lemon drops, blow pops, hugs and kisses, margarita jigglers, a fun round of Scene-it, where DTC and I rocked so much we should have won but didn’t (we knew all the answers but the ones that mattered most!), gifts for the bride & groom, people playing pool, darts, and just having fun. Eventually we all crashed on her many couches and slept, and when we woke up KW made us omelets. Mmmm…
Afterwards, Emily, KW & I went to see “Wimbledon” – which I thought was very cute and fun. Plus it was unique in many ways – even if it was your typical chick flick. I liked it. You should go see it.
I finished off the day taking care of Mike, who is still sick (he was home from work on Thursday & Friday) and watching the first episodes of CSI on DVD courtesy of Netflixs. Down time to recover from the rush, and now I need to get ready for the upcoming Stampin’ Up party next Saturday. I still have cards to design! Eep!
