Summertime is Cool, the Heat is Getting Old

So, the Saturday Scavenger Hunt word this week was help. It's a a very versatile word. As usual, I'll be working it into my weekend update post. I also want to thank everyone for the great music suggestions. I used almost all of them for my bachelorette party playlist and it was awesome.

After this weekend, I do need some help recuperating. I had a great time, but I'm old, so I don't bounce back the way I used to. Mostly, I'm super sore from dancing for four hours straight. Ouch!

Yeah, so my friend D. decided to give the party a luau theme at the last minute, so we had tiki torches and leis, and grass skirts in addition to the Slip N Slide, kid pool, squirt guns and the obligatory penis cake that my friend Erika made special just for my girl crush's bachelorette party.

The Slip N Slide was super cool. They put two together and set it up on a hill for maximum speed. I didn't try it because I was worried I might mess up my knees on it and I have that notbeingabletorunaphobia.

I did participate in the squirt gun fight and even did a pseudo Charlie's Angels pose with my two girl crushes, before it dissolved into us shooting each other.

Once it got dark out, we all drove downtown to get the dance party started. Here is my girl crush with her 'Ho Fo Sho" cup when we first got downtown.

Then we decided to Lord of the Flies it up by painting her up with blue pool chalk. I didn't think it was possible, but she was even more adorable with the new look.

Later on, another bachelorette party descended down the stairs. They were way more mellow than we were, except for the gigantic inflatable pink penis she carried around with her and the fact that she did a belly shot off of one of the bartenders who was off-duty at the time.

Here is a group shot of most of us. I have no idea why I thought it was necessary to lick my girl crush's leg in this one, but I'm sure it made total sense at the time.

Here's the end of the night when we got my favorite bartender to not only do the Lawnmower dance, but also let someone take a picture of it. He really is the best sport ever. We certainly didn't need any help dancing around like dorks, but we sure appreciated the support of the Dublin Underground staff.

I always thought if two bachelorette parties arrived in the same bar that the universe ended or something?

When it comes to partying, I don't think you need any help!

Good certainly needed no help having a good time.

Licking your girl crushes leg seemed like a good idea at the time...behold the powers of alcohol!!

Great post. I always enjoy reading the accounts of your weekend antics.

This looks like so much fun!! All of my friends are married, though, so the only way I'll be at one of these is if it's my own. After this weekend I don't see that happening any time soon so no hope there.

I'd be afraid of hurting my breasts landing down on that slip-n-slide. Ouuuch!

That looks like such an amazing party. That cake and the pink balloon are hilarious.

You and your friends are all hotties. Looks like so much fun!

I've always thought you needed help. I'm pretty sure you still do, but I don't want to sound judgmental. Good photos, looks like it was a great time.

Girls having fun just LOOKS fun! How many things can you say that about?

TWO slip'n-slides?! TWO?!?! I'm thinking there are a few aching bodies 'round IC today.

MrManuel said...

Best Bachelorette Party Ever. It has been decreed and it is so.

Mr Atrocity,

I was thinking we should at least rumble or something.


I think you're right.


Alcohol or stupidity - it's about the same thing.


If you ever have a bachelorette party, I totally want to be invited.


I heard some complaints of sore boobs from the other girls.


I wish you would come to town and play with us. You would fit right in.


You are so very right. I do need help.

Booda Baby,

I'm sure I'm not the only one. I was walking around like I was in my nineties all day.

Mr Manuel,

Go out and get yourself one.

Laura B.,

It really was.
