wow! it's hard to believe that i am now a married woman... i thought it would be cool, now that i am not so busy to share the week or so leading up to the wedding and the wedding/reception/honeymoon itself.
my besties (sam and ashley) and i decided a long time ago that we would do my bachelorette party on st. patrick's day. it's one of our favorite holidays. dallas always has a parade/block party on greenville ave. and we thought it would be the perfect way to celebrate my last weekend of singledome. about a month before the parade, there was talk of it being cancelled because a lot of the local businesses that usually help fund it, were not able to help out this year. but, low and behold, mr. mark cuban himself saved the day with a $40k donation. (what a guy!)
saturday morning, (st. patty's day) ashley and sam showed up at my house. we loaded up my car and hit the road. we went ahead and parked at the hotel that they got us for the night. they got us a room at the hyatt regency, which is located right next to reunion tower. baller!
we hopped on a train headed for lover's lane. the train was packed and we made friends with a little baby. she liked our hottie whistles and our beads. we got off the train and headed to the cvs where we told everyone to meet us. there, we ran into mandy and amanda. we got front row and waited for the parade to start.
the parade was fun, but after drinking 3 beers, i was ready to go to the bathroom. there was a looooong line in front of cvs with some port-a-pottys so i got in line. i made friends with two sisters while we did the pee-pee dance. they even bought me a beer! (which i didn't want to drink until i used the bathroom). FINALLY, it was my turn. while i was doin' my thing, i heard a loud commotion outside. once i got out, i found out that a lady had paid samantha $10 to cut the line. but then, some other hoe decided she was going to lie and say that she had a wristband to use the bathroom. they knew that was bs, but the lady ran to the first opened bathroom and dropped her pants. sam, ran to the door and flung it open! served her right... lol
we were hungry. we got back to the train and headed to the west end. we decided greasy wings were what we wanted and settled on hooters. yes, i went to hooters as part of my bachelorette party.... after a delish lunch, we could finally check into our hotel room. man, was it nice!? we had a great view, thanks to the guy at the front desk. he told us the hot tub was out of commission, as they were doing renovations, but the pool should be at 72 degrees. HA! it was cold. we scratched that idea and i took a nap.
when i woke up (it was a short nap) i jumped in the shower and got ready to paint the town. we were waiting on amanda, so we didn't go too far. we went to the train, and met the drunkest dude in history. he was trying to get back to plano, but wouldn't listen to us when we told him which train to take. lol... we decided we would eat at the iron cactus and then check out a few bars... but by the time we were done eating, we were all tired and sam's belly wasn't feeling too hot, so we took a cab back to the room. amanda had gotten ready, so we took some photos. then, i swear, we watched snl and then passed out. we are such old ladies.... but not before each of our guys texted us that they wanted us to come home! LOL!
the next day, we packed up our stuff and had breakfast at ihop. it was great catching up with amanda. i wish she lived a little closer. we really had a great time with her. and now..... the photos........
