Now y'all are probably expecting me to do a long-ass boring post on what we all did on our little getaway, but surprise, surprise! I'm not...(yet, anyway!) Say whaaaaaat??!! I'm sure you are just as shocked as I was about not hearing a vacay recap today. But I have a more pressing topic I wanted to throw out there to y'all. Ok, so it's not some super serious topic of discussion, but I do have some questions for you. HELP!!!!
So, remember how I told you that my sister's bachelorette party is Labor Day weekend? Well guess what? Did y'all know that THIS weekend is Labor Day weekend??!! Shoot! It is super early this year, and in typical Jenna fashion, I waited until the last minute to throw things together for her party! Let's just say with school starting for the little guy and a week long vacation thrown in the mix, I got a little side-tracked...I seriously had it in my head that next weekend was Labor Day so I figured I had plenty of time. Welp, I was wrong. The party is this Saturday. And while I do have a lot planned, there are still some items that I need help with! This is where you guys come in...
Now, the layout of the night goes a little something like this:
7:00 p.m.: 28 (early 20's) girls are arriving at my house, where we will start the night with food, drinks, presents for my sister and games.
10:00 p.m.: A 30 person party bus is picking us up at my front door and driving us downtown (which is about 30 minutes from our house) and dropping us off at a popular bar down there. (I literally had to ask my college aged cousin the hot-spots downtown because I'm such an old lady and am in bed by 9:30 on Friday and Saturday nights!) Where we will proceed to drink, dance, sell suckers for a buck to desperate single guys to raise a little moolah for the bride.
11:30 p.m.: There may, or may not be a little surprise stop to Omaha's version of "The Thunder From Down Under" planned for my sister's last night of "freedom!" I mean, why not, right?? Haha!
1:30 a.m.: The bus is picking us back up and bringing us home. Lord help me...I have a feeling it's going to be a shit show.
We also have about 18 of those girls staying at my house since most of them are coming from out of town...so it is going to be one big "slumber party" if you will!
Soooooo, now that you have the down low on the itinerary for the night, this where y'all come in. I need your help with a couple things:
- What games should we play before we hit the town...What did you play at your own bachelorette, or at friends' parties? I'm really struggling with ideas for this, so I would really appreciate it if you could throw some ideas my way!! (I've been striking out on Pinterest for this one!)
- What is your favorite flavor jello shot recipe? I want to do something different, and I've got to make about 100+ of them, so I need some variety!
- What is your go-to for snack food at a party where you know you will be drinking most of the night? I need ideas for some foods with "substance" if you know what I mean...items that will "soak up" a night full of drinking so girls aren't falling over before we even leave the house!
Until next time...
