Wedding Wednesday: Bachelorette Extravaganza!!

Before we get down to biznass, can I just freak out for a second about the fact that there are only 18 MORE DAYS until I am a married woman?!?!?!?!  Can't even stand it!

Disclaimer:  Long post with LOTS of pics, but well worth the time spent IMHO.

Okay, now, for the biznass...

As I mentioned on Friday, this past weekend was my bachelorette party.  Being the control freak that I am, I have been really hands off with my bridesmaids for the most part and only told them what I wanted to do for this weekend and they took it from there.  Very shocking for those that know me well.  I tried not to ask too many questions and let them run with it and boy did they ever.

After getting off work I headed to Kohl's to try to find something to wear for a couple of the events.  Nothing like last minute shopping.  I headed home to pack and headed to the casino (don't worry, it's only ten minutes from my house :))  JB's mom's friend gets a lot of things comped at the casino (read: has a gambling problem, lol) and was kind enough to get us a suite as well as an extra double room right across the hall for the weekend FOR FREE.  After trying to coordinate with one of my BMs and another friend on meeting at my house vs. meeting at the hotel, we just decided to all meet at the hotel.  JB had to go ahead of time to meet his mom's friend to get our keys and get shown where our rooms were so he could show me the lay of the land when I got there before he left me for the weekend.  While he was waiting for me, he won $100 playing black jack to give me for the weekend!!!


So I get there and he is beyond excited to give me this $100 and then handed over all the room keys.  He walked me to the elevator and I stepped on assuming he was behind me when I hear him say, "alright, this is where I take off."  I was confused b this as I thought he was going to walk me up to the room and check it out with me, so I said, "Wait, let me get off the elevator!"  I gave him a proper goodbye and then headed upstairs assuming I was the first person there, excited to scope out the place.  As I open the door to the room I hear music playing and the BM and other friend I had been trying to coordinate with were already there and had decorated and set up the room!!!  SURPRISE!!

(Pin the lips on the dude, never even got played) 

(Apparently this was JB's idea) 

(My best friend for 3 days, and yes I will use this always and forever) 

(Personalized bottle of Mejor Modern Luxury Tequila)

The rest of the girls filtered in and We had a couple of drinks and got ready to head to dinner. 

We decided to just head down to the cafe to get a quick bite to eat since we were going out to dinner the next night as well.  After dinner we headed back up to the room to have some more free drinks before going out to the casino "club".  I use quotes because it's really a bar, but they have a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights.  We have the music up and are drinking and BSing and then there is a knock at the door.  I happen to be closest and look through the peep hole and see that it's security.  We aren't doing anything wrong, but I automatically go, "It's security, turn down the music!!!"  They are all yelling at me to answer the door. 

Does anyone see where this is going, because up to this point, I really had no idea....

I answer the door and the guy says, "Breanne?  We have a problem with your car in the garage."  It clicks, and I roll my eyes and curse my friends.  I am dying laughing at this point.  I can't even describe in words how foul this whole situation was.  Luckily, I have plenty of pictures.

(Playing along)

(Please don't do that)

(So sweaty!!)

(Shit's about to get real)

(Enjoying my pain)

(What she thought she ordered)

(Oh no!!!)

(Double inverted tea bag slide)

(Now I need to shower)

(I really hope this is almost over)

Luckily my wonderful friends only paid for a 15 minute show (longest 15 minutes of my lifetime!).  Although, he did offer a private bedroom dance to which I not so politely declined.  I seriously felt like I needed to shower after he sweated all over me.  We referred to him as Dracula for the rest of the weekend.  My friend actually ordered me a sexual chocolate, but got a White Russian instead.  LMAO!  I told her to do a review on Yelp! but she wasn't okay with saying, "Um, I ordered a stripper and they totally sent the wrong flavor.  Two thumbs down."

After the show we headed down to the club to get our groove on.  On our way there, we ran into another Filipino who tried to steal me away from JB:

We proceeded to shake that ass all over the dancefloor.

(Someone's got a girlfriend!!)

We shut the place down and then did a little gambling before bed.  I doubled my $20 on a penny slot!!  The next morning I had a bit of a headache, but other than that felt fine.  I can't say the same for some of the other girls.  We took our time getting ready and lounging around drinking mimosas.  After looking out the window to see hail, we decided to leave our swimsuits in our suitcases and proceed with a little girl talk, a lot more mimosas, and even some gambling to pass the time before getting ready to head to dinner.

So awsome to have your own hairstylist come on vacation with you!  Love my MOH!!

We had dinner at the Asian fusion restaurant they have there in the casino.  I think it's one of those family style eating places, but we all just ordered our own dish.  It was pretty tasty!  A couple of other girls came out just for dinner and a little dancing, even my super prego friendy (she's due a week after my wedding).  She didn't stay long after dinner, but I was so glad she could come out for a bit.  There were a lot more crazy drinks and dancing that night. 

(The old dudes were out in full effect!)

(Don't worry, I found some closer to our age group)

(This would be a cute pic if I didn't ruin it!)

(The MOH and I had a super dorky dance off)

(It was amazing.  I wish I had video.)

(And then there was this guy)

Homeboy came out of nowhere offering massages to me and the MOH after he saw us working up a sweat on the dance floor.  We were seriously dancing all over the place.  We.Are.Special.  As you can see from that last pic, I gave up on keeping the veil in place and just started using it as a headband to keep my sweaty hair out of my face.  We closed down the club once again and then were up talking until 4am.

Sunday morning I woke up feeling fine.  The hangover gods were seriously good to me.  I couldn't believe it, especially since I have been out of the game for so long.  We got up and got showered and met everyone downstairs to board the short bus to go winetasting.  Some of the girls brought snacks and beers and stuff to make mimosas and sandwiches.  The road up was pretty windy, so some people had to hold off on the drinking until we got to our first winery, but I think it's safe to say we all had a good time.

(One of the workers at the first winery wanted to show up the stripper)

Since they were making me drink mini bottles of booze in between wineries, this is pretty much the last part that's really clear in my mind.  I do know that I had an amazing weekend and am so blessed to have great friends.  My bridesmaids really went above and beyond my expectations and I am so grateful for them.  Well, except for the whole stripper thing.  I will definitely be getting them back for that.
