Bachelorette Fun

One of my BFFs hosted a sort-of surprise Bachelorette Weekend for me. I had so much fun but look at this picture of the yucky weather we faced on Saturday:


And it was cold.

My hostess and her mother treated us all to Mani/Pedis and Mimosas at Deluxe Nail Salon in McKinney. The place is so nice that I will go back even though it is quite far. My MOH lives in McKinney so I have another excuse to visit her more often. She couldn’t join us b/c she had the flu and I keep praying that she feels better for the wedding…But I digress. Pictures:


On to lunch (which consisted of lots of cheese and crackers and wine) and gifts which was a complete surprise. It was a great day.


While trying to recover from cheese bloat, we decided to get dressed for our night out, (my dear hostess’ mother let slip that we were going to Dragonfly. Yum.


I love that blurry picture for some reason. Moving on:


Big Flirts in both pics!


I was trying to be funny in the dessert pic. The chocolate cake was divine (we all shared).


Posin’ – a lot.

After dinner, we headed to the Candleroom and had a few more drinks. We were well behaved because the weather was so bad but we managed to have a great time. I even let me hair down.

I finally purchased my bustier over the weekend…well, my Mom did. She’s a true Godsend, I tell ya! It was very stressful trying on all those strapless bras and corsets. My skin was so red with all the twisting and pinching and turning. I am very pleased with the bustier I chose.  bustier1 I’m not sure if this is the exact brand – Jezebel (stock photo) but it looks exactly like it and it was about $48.00 from Dillard’s.  It’s nude color b/c my dress is very thin and white would show through and my Spanx are nude too.

I have a football player’s upper body like this:


My bustier really nips me in at the waist allowing me to look more like this:


With that and my Spanx, Happiness ensues!

Even though we were both for the Giants, my mister made sort-of a wager if they won the Superbowl.  It was in the third quarter and the score was close, you remember how tense of a game it was.  So, mister is on the edge of his seat and he’s so antsy and nervous.  He jumps up and shouts to me, “If the Giants win, I’ll buy you a $10,000 wedding ring.”

Um ok – what a weirdo right!  Now, I don’t expect him to keep his word as he/we cannot afford a $10k wedding band but it was still cute, no?  Still, I’m thinking that he’s gonna upgrade me pretty good.  He’s just so happy the Giants won.
I happen to love football and we both get a little depressed when football season is over.  So ladies, always remember to enjoy football with your man.  You never know what rewards you will reap!

Some pics of the process – invites and RSVPs:





Here are my custom stamps from Zazzle. (FYI – they are selling like hotcakes!)









I did all my own calligraphy.  The invites were printed on glossy photo paper from home on our HP.  Of course, the envelopes and paper are from Papersource.com except for the gold belly band, which is from JoAnn’s.  All DIY, baby.  I’ve rec’d so many compliments.  I love how they all came together.
