We’re Gonna Party Like it’s 1985!

It’s no secret that I love the 80’s.  Has anyone else in the last decade packed four pairs of leg warmers in their suitcase when they went home for spring break? Yeah, I didn’t think so.  So you can imagine my delight when I found this sparkly amazingness behind my bridal shower invitation few weeks back.


So after my awesome shower, we loaded up the car and headed out on a journey to the middle of nowhere.  But first, some of us changed into our 80’s gear.


Let me recap the highlights of the evening…

I got an awesome crown and a sash. (I still wear the crown in my apartment. Shhhh.)


We drank delicious beer at Big Woods Brewing Company in Nashville, Indiana. (I’m totally a beer drinker as opposed to girly drinks, and I was proud of my girls for finding an awesome place and for drinking beer too.)


I cannot get over that side pony.

Some of the bridesmaids got a little caught up in March Madness.

Watching the Gonzaga game with great intensity.

She didn't agree with the refs. (Or something like that...)

I sang “When You Say Nothing At All” with the woman who was playing music that night at the bar. Still not really sure how that happened. There’s supposedly a video somewhere.  We’ll just not post that…


We made duck faces.


We had fireplace s’mores and embarrassing dance moves.


I got this awesome coozie.

"I think I gotta pee."

“I think I gotta pee.”

And of course, there was some male genetalia (just in the form of lollipops and confetti, thank god).

Mr. Whale said, "That's so snazzy!" when I showed him this picture. It's very subtle :)

Then I showed him this picture and he said, "Ewwww."

And of course there had to be some poor decision-making.  What was mine?  I definitely should not have allowed my cast-decorating session to take place at my bachelorette party… 🙂  There may or may not be a life size drawing of a male body part on my forearm.  For fear of the embarrassment it might cause when I go to the doctor to have the cast removed, I tried to disguise it.  I didn’t do a very good job.  I’d post a picture, but there are limits to what I will post on the internet 🙂  You can use your imagination.

In conclusion, fun times were had by all.  We woke up in the morning with ridiculous headaches, and I ate my weight in leftover pizza and homemade fruit and yogurt parfaits.  It was awesome.

Did you have a bachelorette party?  Was it traditional bar-hopping or do you do something less conventional?
