I spent the weekend in Las Vegas at a very fun bachelorette party. My BFF from college, Miss Julie Ann, is marrying her fiance Stuart in January, so we headed out to Sin City to celebrate her, Vegas style!
I was supposed to fly out Thursday night, but when I arrived at LAX that evening, suitcase in hand, I was greeted with a flight delayed for SIX HOURS! When I realized all the other flights to Vegas were being canceled (terrible fog in Vegas), I saw the writing on the wall, cut my losses and rebooked my flight for Friday morning. Lucky me, that meant I got to go home and watch Peter Pan Live with my husband and some friends.... I mean, yay for friends, but UGH for Allison Williams.
Anyway, my flight there on Friday morning was uneventful and as soon as I arrived, met up with everyone for lunch at Lotus of Siam - yum! Have you heard of it? It's been consistently called "the best Thai restaurant in America" and I kindaaaaaa agree. I recommended we go there for an early lunch and we had a delicious meal :) look at this happy and slightly NSFW bride-to-be!
We spent Friday afternoon gambling and shmoozing (I got my hair blown out... WHY is there no Drybar in Vegas?! Someone make that happen!), then came back to the rooms to hang out and rest and open our weekend gifts... look how cute! I designed our bachelorette tanks - "Just Stu It" was PRETTY GENIUS if I do say so myself! :)
On Friday night, we had a big group dinner at Spago, which was delish, and then came back to the room to play some bachelorette games :)
This is so fun.... on Saturday afternoon we surprised the bride with an 80's themed dance class! A dance instructor came and taught us a special dance to "What A Feeling" from Flashdance and we rocked it out, complete with neon leggings :) Let me just say - I am not proud of this - but three days later I AM STILL SORE from our crazy dance moves. If we remember the dance, we are sure to rock it out on the dance floor at the wedding!!! #iamold #butthatwasfun
Out of all of our friends, Julie and I are the ones who love to gamble the most. We both love playing the Goldfish and Sex and The City slot machines. Here's the bachelorette casually winning $100 on SATC! We screamed so loud!
Some pictures before heading out Saturday night....
We had dinner at Sushi Samba, which was delicious, and then after dinner, our private room randomly turned into a karaoke club? But we were the only ones in it? It was so bizarre, but so fun - of course we immediately started making requests and getting onstage and dancing and singing. I could not resist channeling Nikki Minaj and rapping out Anaconda. The bride may have joined in. Haha.
After dinner & karaoke, we made a brief stop at TAO for some clubbin. Now let me say this.... I am NOT a fan of clubs. I did it for my friend because I love her, but this is my solemn promise in a public location - you will never again catch me in da club. It is SO not my scene!!! At one point Gerrick, Stacy and I went to the bathroom and when we came back, we had lost the rest of our group.... we cautiously ventured onto the dance floor so that we could cross the room... and of course at that exact moment, TAO started shooting off red glitter and smoke and streamers everywhere, all over us! Gerrick was like "WE HAVE NO BUSINESS BEING HERE" and I just started laughing hysterically. We danced for an hour and then left to go to sleep like the old almost-thirty year olds we are.
We spent Sunday gambling, shopping, and having lunch at Giada - which was phenomenal and I can't wait to go back! Actually, I could say that about Vegas itself... it was a great weekend and we are all very excited for Ju & Stu's wedding in just a few weeks!!!
