this weekend was the event i’ve planned mentally and physically for months now.
*a bachelorette party for my mary catherine* (the only one i get to sign sentences to who understands me. lizzie faith doesn’t really fill the signing void… i miss her already!)
i’m not a party planner… i do weddings, not the receptions or parties surrounding/leading up to. i felt really out of my comfort zone so it took me much longer than it would take the seasoned party planner. 🙂
we started our afternoon of bachelorette festivities at smokey row, a favorite coffee shop of ours in oskaloosa, ia. we did a mini pamper party with a paraffin hand-wax dipping (and footing dipping that failed miserably), played bingo, design a wedding dress out of toilet paper, wedding ord scrabble and mc had to answer 30 questions as if she were pat… when she got one wrong she had to put a piece of gum in her mouth. she was such a good sport! i would have gagged and not made it. 🙂
we then went to supper at a local formal dining restaurant in osky, the pepper tree. did i get my camera out once while there, nope… oops!
i went on to my grandparent’s for my grandpa’s birthday and then headed home. while the other ladies party-ed it hard at their hometown bar.
40 days and counting (til the wedding!!)
