Props to your husband

That title was one of my favorite lines from the weekend (I couldn't pick just ONE favorite- there was the "harrow", "This is my life", "Hey Sav", and the list could go on....), but this one no one heard!!  So let me explain now, real fast :)  Erica and Heather made this book for Vanessa with tasks she had to complete on Saturday night.  These were of course hilarious, but they always involved a guy.  Any guy.  Any guy on the street.  So of course while we walked the streets of Aggieville and were in the bars, we asked every guy if he'd help her complete a task.  Some were like "WTF" and others (like the scared little boy we found with a condom in his wallet) were more than willing to participate!

Anyways.....we were walking out of Salty Rim and I stopped these 2 guys and asked them if they wanted to help my friend out on stuff she had to complete tonight.

Guys: "What is it, like her 21st birthday?"

Me busting out in laughter at this.  "No- we're old, it's her bachelorette party"

Guys: "Oh." A small pause while his creepo friend points at my engagement ring and goes "That sucks. You know that your married.  But props to your husband, that's a sweet ring" **Thanks Jim, I think so too :)  You did well (but what guy says that?)***

Really?  Really?  REALLY?  (FYI- I just watched TSwift do SNL on DVR and there was this skit with Amy Pohler on it where they said that a lot.  It was hilarious.  As was the entire SNL, because of TSwift--DUH)

But overall, I laughed really hard at that comment.  And at the comment in Kite's to the slightly overweight sweaty man that bought our entire table shots ($55) unaware that about 50% of us don't take shots.  And then yelled "Yes I just bought slutty college whores shots!"  Emily Griffin yells back-- "We're not in college, we're all like married."  He yells back "Well I'm a doctor"  Courtney (a real doctor) gets involved "What kind of doctor are you?"  Sweaty guy screams back "A chiropractor".  Courtney (again a real doctor) yells back "Oh...well that's not a REAL doctor."  He left us alone after that.  THANKS COURT.  It always helps to have really smart and successful friends!!

OK now that I have told like 4 stories that are completely not focused on the bachelorette herself.....onto some of my favorite pictures of the weekend.

Exhibit A:
Our tailgate.  We didn't wake up early enough to get into the "cool" lot.  I was really upset about this.  But the guest of honor didn't seem to mind- so we made do.  I promise next time I'll bring a table :)  That seems to always work a little better.  But what a BEAUTIFUL day for a tailgate.  We even got Heather to wear purple....she was sporting a little Jayhawk- but we'll forgive her.  Just because they lost and we kind of feel bad.  Only kind of.  But thanks for everyone that came by and hung out!!!  It was so fun!

Exhibit B:
Taken with Vanessa's camera by me (of course).  I love tricking people like that with the zoom.  However, V's face is awesome in this.  At Porters on the patio, drinking beer, enjoying a big Wildcat win, eating delicious wings & tacos.  We were supposed to be napping at this time- yeah we didn't want to leave!!!

Exhibit C:
I'm guessing this might be to "Pi Phi" control.  Maybe, maybe?  Yes this was Ale House and just a small preview to the most ridiculous, fun, exhausting, hilarious dancing you have ever see.  Thank goodness V is buying all her bridesmaids flip flops to wear at the reception---because I'm planning on busting out some of these moves---and you better be too.

Exhibit C:
More dancing, more fun, pure bliss.  I'm pretty sure her bachelorette party will be unforgetable!  I cannot wait for the big day - holy crap only 9 days!!!  And then I can call her "Vanessa Calcara" in the weird/annoying voice FOREVER....hahahahaha (evil laugh).  No really, I am obviously excited for her and Chris for WAY more important reasons than that, but you know, whatev.

All right kiddos, well that tops off a freaking amazing weekend.  I was however going to collapse on Sunday night when I finally got home after waking up after two crazy nights (with NO sleep)...but it was worth it.  Send V off in style and her bridesmaids live by the style "go big or go home" (DUH) so of course it was amazing.  We love you Vanessa- and if you don't let Chris pick the clothespins out of the hat.....I'm going to be REALLY mad!!
