bachelorette party: part I

we had a blast at my bachelorette party!
we started the night off with dinner at taco mamacita (my favorite restaurant)
and then went back to my friend's house to play a game
and i opened all of my lingerie
(which, might i just say, all my friends have extraordinary taste in bras and undies)
then we went downtown to a bar and danced
and came back to the house to have drinks and play more games!
it was a night i'll never forget and i owe all of my thanks to my bridesmaids
who planned the entire night for me.

here is part I of the photos:

yes, i danced. you can write it in the history books.
me and meagan, one of my bridesmaids!
steph and ellen!

a break-in-your-wedding-shoes party

my best friend/roommate threw a break-in-your-wedding-shoes party
for me and our friend becca who is getting married in june.
all i have to say is that this should be a party every bride has before the wedding!
we invited our bridesmaids who were in town and everyone brought 2 things:
1) their wedding shoes
2) a bottle of wine
we snacked on delicious hor dourves and drank wine and played games
and had SO much fun.
i feel like she should win an award for coming up with this idea!

the brides!

first game: a cake walk!

becca and her bridesmaids

me and my bridesmaids (most of them)

last 2 photos taken by steph.
