Oh man- We're alive! Bachelor/ette parties went off this weekend without a hitch. Ian's boys showed him a boozy view of the city with a mariners game, bars, sports games, a German themed beer drinking event, and a night in a fine hotel. Ian will have to tell more about this weekend long extravaganza.
As for myself, the night started like this:
And ended like this.
Lingerie party (awesome gifts from all of you!), drinks, party games, marking tasks off my fabulous bachelorette t-shirt, bars, crazy taxi rides, and DANCING at Neighbors on Capitol Hill. I was able to provide some amusement to everyone and not completely embarrass myself. Mission accomplished.
I still can't get over how bizarre to be the entitled bimbo for the night. From the moment I showed up Crystal & Emily were the dream team of bachelorette pampering. From the awesome EBE sign crystal put together to the delicious spread of delicacies (including a chocolate fountain!) I was super impressed and so happy to have them as friends. All night I just got to drink, chat, laugh, and dance. Responsibilities away! That, in of itself, was a pleasure.
A huge shout out of appreciation to everyone who came to our parties and an extra thank you to everyone who put them together. You guys are AWESOME!
