I have been really trying to be better about blogging daily but I was at a...wait for it...bachelorette party this weekend! It was for my future sister-in-law Laurie and I am so happy I could be there for her. It seemed for awhile that I was just not going to make it. There were hurdles leading up to the weekend and then even on that day when I was trying to get out of the house. That is really just the story of my life right now. I think I can safely assume that most moms of young children have trouble leaving the house for a weekend.
I have to admit that leading up to the weekend I was really worried about it. I have never really done anything like this and I felt like I was going to be totally out of my comfort zone. And I was a little bit at times. In the beginning I felt a little odd that I was not drinking a lot (of alcohol) but I am so beyond drinking to feel like I fit in. So I just kind of stuck out the uncomfortableness (Is that a word?) and the feeling passed.* I just really don't drink anymore but I still have fun! I wasn't dancing a lot, but that was due more to the comfort of my poor feet than anything else. I promise you, Laurie & Jeremiah that I will be dancing at your wedding!!
We were in Philadelphia, which is a place with which I am not that familiar but was easy enough to navigate and lots of fun. Vin & I spent a few days there for our little honeymoon so it was nice to remember that while I was there. I think that if I lived a little closer I would spend more time there. There are so many interesting historical sites if you are into that kind of thing. Which I am. I'm nerdy...can't help myself!
The activities we did were fun and included: wine class/tasting, karaoke & sushi, bar and then back to the hotel for late night pizza shenanigans and passing out. Today we had brunch at a really cool, eclectic diner before all heading home. (Umm, bacon pancakes?, awesome!) And I must not forget the fun-shaped straws and confetti and flashing rings!
Back to the party...I was really happy to be part of the group for the night. More importantly, I am just thrilled that Laurie has such a great group of women who she counts as friends and family. They love her so much!
I cannot WAIT for November 12, 2011!!!
*Just want to clarify that NOBODY made me feel uncomfortable for not drinking a lot. That was totally just me. :)
