#Bacheloraff, Part Trois!

Okay friends we're goin' home this is the last post I'm writing about all the #bacheloraff!

We woke up on Saturday morning and all got dressed for the day in our shirts. To say I am obsessed with this shirt is an understatement. I want to wear it every single day for the rest of my life! 

Special bridal Starbucks :)

Once everyone had gathered wearing their shirts, we smooshed into the cars and headed… where else? Beyond Bread. I couldn't stop cracking up at the sight of all of us in our matching shirts in one line.

Of course I had to hop behind the counter to cuddle with the cashier :)

After lunch, I insisted on a group shot outside BB… I am planning on framing this and/or making it into a MASSIVE canvas to hang in my house. Ram will be so pleased :)

Next we headed to U of A so the Wildcats among us could show off our beautiful campus… and take what is possibly one of the cutest photo composites of all time? I CANNOT EVEN FREAKING HANDLE THE CUTENESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After some more stops in the bookstore, on University Avenue, and in a candy shop (of course), we headed back to the hotel. When it was time to get ready for night #2, I got some more surprises First, every single one of my friends got ready for the night all decked in LEOPARD PRINT!!! No wonder they told me to wear my pink dress - pink and leopard, it couldn't have been more perfect! And then Gerrick whipped out leopard print HEADBANDS, pink and leopard print custom KOOZIES, and oh yeah an amazing hilarious #bacheloraff BANNER. I was floored. I was speechless. Look at my face!

Gorgeous leopard-print-decked pals after a delicious dinner of take-out Oreganos:

Finally, we headed out for a night on the town… and were greeted with this amazing sight: our ride for the evening, the PARTY BUS!!! My amazing mom arranged for this to be our transportation for the evening and it was PERFECT - coolers full of drinks, amazing sound system, ice cold air conditioning, and not one but TWO stripper poles for dancing and such :) here we are posing in front of our snazzy new ride!

So off we went! First stop was a true Tucson institution - The Meet Rack, of which I will just say the following - my friends in the group who did NOT go to the University of Arizona are now permanently frightened of Tucson. Next we went to my all-time favorite place, Dirtbags, where I spent many a night in college dancing to the jukebox and drinking vodka crans.

Surprise surprise - in July, Dirtbags is not crowded. In fact, it was EMPTY. Never you mind this, I was expecting it, and happily sat at our favorite table and drank vodka crans and danced to the jukebox anyway :)

The party bus though… it got a little crazy :)

The night ended the way nights should always end - first, a trip to In & Out, then home to snuggle in bed and recap all our fun!

The next day, friends started leaving :( I was so, so sad it was over but still managed to have fun the rest of the day, wearing matching shirts with Gerrick, shopping in the bookstore, and yes, paying ANOTHER visit to Beyond Bread!

So there you have it! The full recap of all the #bacheloraff shenanigans. I’m amazed by how quickly it all flew by – I remember getting ridiculously excited months and months ago just booking my flight! – and I know that I’m going to feel the same way when it’s my wedding weekend… it’s going to FLY BY!

I am the luckiest person in the entire world to have such loving, generous, amazing, hilarious friends who all took the time and spent the money to fly out to celebrate me for an entire weekend. Words cannot express how much that meant to me and how much fun I had. A special shout-out needs to go to my amazing, incredible sister, who went above and beyond planning a weekend that she knew I would love from the moment I arrived to the moment I left. Every single thing was perfect and so detailed and so ME. I will never, ever forget it!
