Oh, remember when I had a bachelorette party like FOREVER ago? Well, here’s the post I wrote about it. I was waiting for my sister to send a video to share with you all, but we never got it figured out. (We’re not always technologically smart. lol) Anyways, here’s some fun and photos for you all!
Incase you live under a rock and haven’t heard, I’m getting married. And in true fashion, I had me a bachelorette party! My sister and my cousin came up with the theme and adorable invites, which really couldn’t have been more perfect!
The theme was for all the ladies to wear a LBD. Well, I have never owned a LBD, so the hunt was on! I actually didn’t have to do much hunting and found one when I wasn’t even looking! It was a steal too! Oh, and a size 12!
Look at that waist!
So, I had the dress, but had to wait ‘patiently’ for the party. Finally March 9th came around and my girls (minus Jenny!) came into town! We met at my parent’s home where we made inappropriately shaped cookies and talked about wedding plans.
What’s a party without cookies?
Saturday was bridesmaid dress shopping! (and the day I exchanged my dress for a smaller size!) I’m happy to report that we found a flower girl dress, and bridesmaid dresses! I’m so excited for them! All the girl are going to look fabulous! We then checked into our hotel, which was a big mess, but thankfully everything got figured out! And got ready for the party!
A quick ‘myspace pic’ before dinner and began to look like a hot mess! Lol
Dinner was fun, my mom, my aunt, and flower girl were there. Along with B-Fry’s mom, and two cousins. After food and a couple of drinks, we were off to hit the town!
Ready to go out!
We had all intentions of riding the cheap bus to different bar areas around the Quad Cities, but ended up staying at The District in Rock Island. The first place was lame, because we were literally the only people there, but that didn’t stop us from hitting the dance floor! The next stop was a little more happening. Sadly this is also where the worst part of the night took place! My dear friend, Lady J ended up completely biffing it and hurting her ankle pretty badly, I actually had to drop her off at the ER the next morning! (No worries, it was just a sprain and she’s doing better now!)
This was also the bar where the DJ asked what I wanted to hear, and I shouted “Baby Got Back.” I would soon regret this… As soon as the song came on, I hit the little ‘stage’ they have to dance. I really thought my ladies would follow, but nope, they left me to dance alone. Oh, and then proceeded to record it!
Shakin’ What My Mama Gave Me!
After this little number, my cousin came back in and exclaimed they were having karaoke at the bar next door. Umm….this chick can NEVER pass up karaoke! While there I sang a killer “I Will Survive” and did a duet with Lady J to “Hungry Like The Wolf.” (Sidenote: Lady J and I bonded at a Duran Duran concert, where we were so close they could pee on us!) This is the place we spent much of the rest of the night, until I demanded a martini! So off to Icons we went where we ended the night. We had to end up calling my mom to come get us because our taxi never showed, I’m sure she loved that call! (Thanks mommy!)
All in all it was a great night! No one got crazy and we all had fun! I must say I’m super glad I’m only getting married once! I don’t know if I could survive another night like that! Lol
Here are some other pics from the night:
