Elizabeth’s Bachelorette Party

May 25, 2011

It’s almost wedding time for my best friend Elizabeth!  She’ll be tying the knot with her fiance, Rustin, this Saturday, May 28th, and I’m the maid of honor!!  It’s my first time with that special title, and I’m so honored to stand up with her on her special day.

Last weekend we celebrated her last few days as a single woman by going to another bridesmaid’s house for dinner and a lingerie party, then to downtown Nashville for a bachelorette night on the town!

Here’s Elizabeth with her new mother in law, Wendie.  I know, they look like they could be sisters, right?

Look at these cute petit fours that Krista provided!  The chocolate one was TO DIE FOR!!!

Mmm….they were so good that I had to include another picture. 🙂

I told Elizabeth that I wouldn’t post any pictures of the lingerie she got, so here’s one of her opening a Victoria’s Secret box.  I know, I know…..but some things just need to be kept between us girls!

Laughing at a story Krista was telling.

She was telling a story about how she hit her head and then her friend tried to apply some bandaid glue to the wound, but it dripped onto her eye and sealed her eye shut.

Here’s the bride to be and me!  Besties!

We started our night out at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville.  We sat upstairs and pretty much had the whole place to ourselves.  And the nice part about that was that we didn’t have to scream to hear ourselves talk.  It was nice and quiet. 🙂  I know….I feel like I’m an old fogey already.  TURN DOWN THAT RACKET!!!!

On the stage at Margaritaville.  The last person to perform on this stage was Toby Keith!!

Aww, this is a cute one of Elizabeth, Wendie, and me.

Oh Krista, she loves to have a good time! 🙂

Jen likes to have a good time too!

And ok, ok, so do I. 🙂

They had a game at Margaritaville where you had to somehow swing a small ring attached to a cord and hook it onto a hook on the wall.  It was not easy, and none of us ever actually accomplished it.

But we all tried!

I REALLY focused, but I couldn’t do it.

Ok, maybe I wasn’t that focused.  But it’s hard to focus when someone keeps taking pictures of you!

Elizabeth was showing me how to throw the ring.  So I asked her to show me her technique, since she clearly had a secret method that no one else knew about.

But of course she couldn’t do it either!

Being silly.

Are your feet hurting you, Elizabeth?  Haha, don’t worry, all of us that were wearing stilettos ended up taking our shoes off at least once throughout the night.

Go Elizabeth!  Go Elizabeth!  It’s your birthday bachelorette party!

Work it!

I witnessed some expert dance moves that night.  We’ve got Elizabeth with the pointer finger.  Jen looks like she’s trying to DJ.

Everybody put your arms up!

Go Krista with those fake “hand” guns!

Luckily, I was the one mainly behind the camera, so you don’t get to see any of my awesome moves.

Pretty lady.  Looks like she had fun. 🙂

Last photo of the evening, because right after this picture my camera battery died.  We had alot of fun, even though we didn’t end up getting home until around 3:30am.  I hope it was a night that Elizabeth will look back on with fond memories.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, Betty!!!  I can’t wait to stand next to you on Saturday when your pledge your love and your life to the man of your dreams!

    Awww! Glad you girls had fun! Joanna, on one close up I noticed a big black spot on your pretty white teeth. Then I touched my screen and scratched it off. LOL
    Congratulations to Elizabeth! Cute pics! 🙂
