Dos and Don'ts For The Perfect Bachelorette Weekend

My bachelorette party was like 8 million years ago, but I'm finally getting around to blogging about it because it was such a fantastic weekend and it needs to be recorded and remembered!

So, without further ado, I present the Dos (or is it Do's) and Don'ts for creating the Perfect Bachelorette Weekend (when you're no longer 21 and Vegas sounds like the LAST place you'd want to be).

1. DO rent a fab house in Palm Springs via AirBnb where you and your closest gal pals can get cozy and lounge by the pool all weekend:

2. DON'T forget to stock up the fridge with all of the essentials:

3. DO make sure to have a kick-ass Maid Of Honor who will provide penis straws for the big event. Because....who doesn't love a good penis straw? (P.S. She desperately searched for "chocolate colored" penis straws because, well....Verner..... but, anyway.... TMI?)

4. DON'T be afraid of the creepy Bachelorette games....especially when your fiance's giant head is staring at you and your friends while you kiss know:

5. DO set aside plenty of time for pool lounging. It is necessary for bonding and getting in your day drinking:

6. DO make sure one of your friends has taken the plunge and purchased a Selfie Stick because it will come in handy when there is no one around to take a group photo (Thanks, Vicki):

7. DON'T forget about your Mother. She likes to join in on the fun festivities, too, you know:

8. DO have a game plan in case anyone gets lost:

9. DON'T be this weirdo...

10. DO find a place where you can shake your tail feather.... even if you're the only ones on the dance floor.
11. DON'T drink champagne, tequila, beer, wine, sake, and vodka all in one day and expect you to be on your A-Game that night. You WILL be in bed by 11:00pm. And when I say bed, I mean the bathroom. Trust.

12. DO tell your girls how fabulous and wonderful they are for making the weekend as special as it was, because without them you'd have a very sad and lonely Bachelorette Weekend sitting all alone at a house in Palm Springs. 

Jen, Becky, Mo, Vicki, Jamie, Susu, Tori, Katie, Mom: I love you all SO much and I had the BEST weekend ever (minus the whole night 2 toilet thing). Thank you thank you thank you for making me feel so loved and special! Can't wait for KAUAI, bitches!!! (just kidding, you're not bitches).

It's the FIVE WEEK countdown, people! Whoo hoo!

Not quite what I had in mind...

Bags packed, up at 6am, and we were rarin' to go this morning. Verner was off to Vancouver for a long Bachelor Weekend and I (because the thought of being home all weekend, alone in our little studio, while he was off having the time of his life with his closest man friends didn't really appeal to me, if I'm being honest here) was headed to San Diego to see my mum one last time before the wedding.

So now you know that.

My flight left at 9am, his didn't leave until 1pm. 

I was in Terminal 3, he was in Terminal 1.

But because my soon-to-be-husband loves me oh-so-dearly, he took one look at my pleading eyes and went through the security line in Terminal 3 just to have a little breakfast with me and send me on my way with the 100th hug and kiss goodbye that morning (I guess you could say we haven't spent much time apart as of late?). He then sauntered back out of Terminal 3 and went through yet another security line in Terminal 1 to then wait patiently for his flight 4 hours later.

I mean... can you see why I'm marrying the guy? He's a gem.

Anyhoozle, last night he told me that Vancouver would be rainy and 50 degrees all weekend long and I had to feel a little sad for him because here I was, off to Sunny San Diego to work on my pre-Bachelorette weekend tan! 

Except then the weather gods decided to laugh and present me THIS situation upon arrival:

And yes, I'm sure I could have checked the weather prior to packing my bikini, shorts, and flip-flops, but eh, what's the fun in that?

Anyway, looks like my pool-filled weekend plans are a bust.

Oh, and side note.... 

My brother is off on Verner's Bach Getaway this weekend as well, so I thought it'd be nice to spend the day and night with my sister-in-law and their two kiddos (10 months and 2 years). 

So maybe, oh, 30 minutes after arriving? Both kids are projectile vomiting...and have been about every hour on the hour. Doc says: Stomach Virus! 

So here I am, elbow deep in kiddie vomit. It's been pretty relaxing, to say the least. 


Oh, but look! Looks like little Marcus might be feeling better! #fornow #dontjinxit

Here's to a Wiiiilllld and crazy weekend, folks!
