I'm back in the Sunshine State! My flight arrived late last night, and by the time I got home and to bed, it was 1 am (needless to say, 7 am came around a little too soon for my taste this morning). But I promised some details about the bachelorette party, so here they are:
The bride, my friend Michelle, lives in a small town just north of Brainerd, MN, so one would have to make a pretty serious drive to get to a strip club; instead, we got together (sans strippers) first for cocktails, appetizers, gifts, and a few games, and then we hit the bars. Pictured below is the group of ladies. I'm on the right holding up the devil horns and sportin' a dangerously low cut dress. Here's Michelle and I.
So, to make the bar-hopping a bit more interesting, Michelle's sister, Laura, had devised a scavenger hunt, and we were each supposed to carry out a series of rather embarassing tasks. First up, I had to find a bald guy and kiss him on the head, but you know me, I always have to take things one step further.
I also got a piggyback ride from a guy, stuck my finger up my nose, asked single men for condoms, and even had a stranger write on my ass (I do have a picture of that but it is rather unflattering, so you'll have to settle for a nose-picking pic).
In the end, we had a good time, drank just the right amount, danced up a storm and had some good laughs. It was nothing but good, good times.
And like I said, I returned home late last night, and one of the best parts about traveling anywhere is the homecoming, especially when I've got a husband who must be trying to win some kind of spouse-of-the-year-award because I came home to fresh flowers and a gift (the movie that we both enjoyed last week).
Today, I was pretty tired, but I had class to teach and when I got home, chores to get to. I may or may not squeeze a run in this evening. I'll let you know if I do; otherwise, peace out.
