Kasey's "Bachelorette Party"

On Friday I picked up my dress for Kasey's wedding...

That night was also the "bachelorette party". Now, we're pretty conservative, Christian girls, and I was the only one over 21...so this was not what most people picture when they think of a bachelorette party. No drinking, no strippers (DEFINITELY no strippers!)...this was just good, clean fun. We went and got manicures/pedicures, then went to the hotel. The mother of one of the other bridesmaids paid for a hotel suite for the five of us for the night (this was her bridal shower gift to Kasey). She also made us dinner and grilled steak, chicken, and shrimp out on the common area patio at the hotel. There were tables and chairs up on the patio, but we all decided we wanted to eat by the water and watch the ducks.

I looked down at my plate when I was finished eating and asked "Does this look like a tree to you?" What can I say?...I see art everywhere!

There are actually five bridesmaids, but one of them, Kasey's fiance's sister in law, has a baby who is only a couple months old, so she didn't stay the night. But she did come for a bit to hang out with us. At the hotel we also swam, played a game called Things (a really fun game, one of my favorite party games, second to Apples to Apples), and watched The Notebook. I went to bed before the movie was over, since it was pretty late, and CJ was picking me up in the morning at 9:00 to go work on the new house.

We also had a wax skin softening treatment that one of the girls brought where you dip your hands into hot wax, let it cool, then take it off to reveal soft skin. The wax was still pliable when we took it off, so I sculpted mine into a little dog. One of the other girls had coiled hers up, then set it next to the dog...so it looks like...

We had a fun time and laughed a lot.
See? Bachelorette parties don't have to be dirty!
