So….my bachelorette got off to a rocky start. One of my BMs
had accidentally let it slip that we were doing something Friday night and then
a few days later another guest let it slip that we were having brunch on Sunday,
when both of these were supposed to be surprises to me. So I was a little bummed
because I like being surprised, but I quickly got over it.
Friday night I went
for a run after work and when I got home one of my BMs called and told me to go
downstairs. I was still in my running clothes so she said I should bring a bag
with PJs and comfy clothes. I was brought to my MOHs BFs apartment for a sleepover
with my 4 oldest friends. We had wine, ordered Chinese, and watched half of
Titanic and half of Magic Mike. Unfortunately, later that night I felt a cold
coming on. It was a bummer but didn’t impact the weekend too much!
Saturday morning my MOH and I went to pick up my other 2 BMs
from the airport while the 2 other girls from the sleepover went home to get
ready for phase 2. We went to Dunkin Donuts for breakfast, where I was chatting
with a friendly man who mentioned he is a florist in the area. That was
perfect, since the florist is the last vendor I need to book. WOO! After
breakfast we went to a cake tasting. I found some flavors I loved and a design
I liked, but FI and I still need to sit down and make a decision together.
After cake tasting my 2 BMs and my MOH came back to my
apartment to pack for the night. I had rented 2 dresses from Rent the Runway,
but didn’t love either of them. Luckily I had ordered another dress as a
backup, which I ended up loving. Once we were packed, we met my 4th
BM and her sister (the girls from the Friday night sleepover) for mani/pedis and
wine. It was glorious!!
Later we made our way over to the hotel. When we checked in
I was surprised with an Edible Arrangement basket with a note from one of my
friends who lives in San Diego saying she was sorry she missed the party but
sent treats for us to enjoy. I was so touched! I never in a million years
expected her to fly from San Diego to Boston for my party, so it was completely
understandable that she couldn’t make it, but it was so sweet that she sent a
gift in her place! I immediately texted her to say thanks! We had some downtime
before dinner, which was perfect. My MOH has a tendency to book events back to
back to back and it can be exhausting, but she did a perfect job of balancing
events with free time! We spent a few hours drinking MORE wine, listening to
boy bands, and having general girl talk. It was SO AMAZING to have all my
favorite people in 1 room. We all clicked so well, you’d never know that 2 of
the girls hadn’t met the other 3 until a few hours before. Then we got ready
for dinner and we looked smokin’! I wore a white dress with tons of cleavage and
they all wore black dresses. I also wore my hair extensions for the first time
and LOVED IT. My only regret from the weekend was that we only took 1 group
picture and it was when we were all seated at dinner! BOO!!
Anyways, we had dinner at a yummy Italian restaurant and I ate
ALL THE THINGS!! I also drank all the things. Everyone got along and had a great
time and I was so happy! At the end of dinner the waiters same me happy birthday....I think they were confused what we were celebrating. I was too drunk to care (or remember, actually).
After dinner we went across town for a drag show. They
lost our reservation, which meant we didn’t have seats for the show but it wasn’t
a big deal. My s hoes were actually super comfy. The queens were awesome and it was fun to just be crazy and silly
in that atmosphere. If you haven't been to a drag show, I highly recommend it.
After the show we were headed for another bar but for once
in my life my brain told me that maybe I should stop drinking before I became too
much of a hot mess, so we got late night pizza instead and I passed out at 1. I
did wake up once in the night to throw up a little, but nothing too bad.
The next morning was a different story. I was SO HUNGOVER.
Like….one of the worst hangovers of my life. I think because I drank so much
wine. I was HURTING. I took a picture of myself so I could remember how rough I
looked that morning. Let’s just say, it was a dramatic transformation from the
We had a reservation for brunch at 10 and as we walked over
I was basically hating life. Once we got to brunch I went to the bathroom and
threw up again and then I was magically healed! Brunch was awesome, after that.
I was craving really cold things, so I drank 2 glasses of milk and a big bowl
of yogurt (very random for me). I wanted to drink but I just couldn’t.
The official bachelorette party was over after that, but my
2 BMs that flew up from NC were staying through Monday night so the 3 of us went
back to my apartment where we lounged in PJs all day watching E!, ordering delivery from
Wahlburgers, and napping. When FI got home from work the 4 of us went to a bar
to watch the Pats game and eat more delicious food (buffalo chicken dip….heaven!).
Monday we spent the day touring Boston and day drinking
before eating an early dinner of Italian (again….I love pasta). Then I brought
them to the airport and cried because I was SO SAD the weekend was over.
It was seriously the most amazing weekend and I am still
super bummed it’s over. My MOH did an amazing job planning and I am SO thankful
to all the girls for coming out for it! I want to do it again!! Here are the only
2 pictures I have from the whole weekend! All of us at dinner and then the
emcee of the drag show enjoying my cleavage.Oh and also a picture of me modeling the dress I ended up wearing (this is before I did my hair or makeup, or added my sash and bachelorette necklace!).
