Hi there.

Hopefully you all still remember who I am, because goodness knows it has been awhile. Trust me, there was so much goodness that I wanted to share with you all, but I can not even begin to describe the whirlwind that has been my life lately.

As most of you know I was planning a wedding and I think it’s an understatement to say how stressful planning a wedding is. I basically planned the whole thing myself, as Matt was really busy, and with my family being across country, sometimes it was hard for them to help, even though they really wanted to. I will say I did have some angels in disguise with an amazing bridesmaid who’s mother helped me out tremendously. It’s one of those situation where words, gifts, praises can not even begin to re-pay them for all they did for me!

I know you are all wanting the juicy details, but so much fun happened before the actual wedding I figured I would do a little series leading up to the big day and then our honeymoon to Denver and Boulder Colorado.

I will leave you with a sneak peak of the wedding to come…

But before the wedding shenanigans even happened, other shenanigans had to be had.

I didn’t have a bridal shower or bachelorette party, as honestly, no one planned one for me. With only having two bridesmaids, both being back in Indiana, and most of my friends spread out over the country, it just wasn’t something I really cared if I had or not. I had been planning with my mom to have a family bridal shower in the summer when I had time to get back to Indiana, so I just figured that would be that….

Well. My co-workers actually humbled me very much and threw me a surprise bachelorette party!

It’s not that I don’t get along with my co-workers, I do! But I honestly just did not expect them to do something like this for me. Again, a humbling experience…followed by fun experiences…

Including penis cakes.

Here’s how the surprise went down… and how “they ruined the good surprise on me”

It was one of my co-workers birthday’s and she had asked me if I wanted to have dinner with her and her friend to celebrate. In my mind it worked out perfectly because it fell on the weekend that Matt was going camping for his bachelor getaway, so I would be home alone that weekend.

Well, that day my dog had a little episode.  She has been having mini seizures and literally as I was walking out the door to go to dinner, it seemed like she had one. She comes out of them pretty quickly, but it just left me nervous to leave her home alone.  I texted my co-worker the situation and got a pretty emotionless response of how we had made plans and she was on this side of town “just for me”. Needless to say it put me in a pretty bad mood and I thought it was really heartless for her not to care that I thought my dog just had a seizure. Of course I got a little attitude back only to quickly get a call from another co-worker telling me what was going on – that they had planned a surprise party, everyone was waiting and that is why the previous co-worker said she thought I should still go.

Well… I felt like a jerk.

After making sure Delilah was ok, I did head out to dinner to where I had a table full of co-workers all laughing at me for almost not coming to my own party.

We met at one of my favorite Mexican spots Blanco Tacos and Tequilla.

It started so innocently with some margaritas.

 We played a few bachelorette party games, had a few more drinks… and well you know how these kinds of parties go down.

It was a really great surprise and so much fun.

After dinner a few of us headed to a local dive bar only to walk in on very bad karaoke and questionable bar patrons.

Well, we tried to make the best out of it and I did manage to get a whipped cream shot from the bartender.

 It was short lived and we decided to soon call it a night.

Overall I had a great night and I am so thankful that they put this together for me!

Well loves I leave you with that, next will the days leading to the wedding.

If you’re married, did you have a bachelorette party?
