#BACHELORAFF, Part Deux!

Friends! It’s time for more pics and stories from the #bacheloraff. ARE YOU EXCITED?! I sure am.

Okay, so I last left off waking up on Friday morning, ready for the whole crew to arrive. Julie, Gerrick, and I drove to our new hotel - the ridiculously gorgeous JW Marriott - to check in for all 5 (!) rooms and prepare some fun surprises :)


You see, when I first decided I wanted to go to Tucson for my bachelorette weekend and July was chosen, I knew it was going to be HOT, and I knew we'd likely be spending some quality time by the pool. So when I thought about a cute gift I could get all my friends to thank them for shlepping out to the Tuc, I had a brilliant idea, if I do say so myself chaise lounge towels!


My amazing wedding planners Bash Please helped me order them and customize them, and voila! One by one, as each of my pals arrived, they came down to the pool to find their very own monogrammed terrycloth chaise lounge cover :) I was pretttttyyyy proud of myself :)



Friday passed in a happy, sunny blur - we swam, we tanned, we chatted and splashed and hugged and jumped all over each other like best friends who haven't seen each other in ages do. We even went in the lazy river and on the waterslide! (Are we nearly thirty, or three years old old?)




After nearly EIGHT HOURS by the pool Gerrick had developed a truly nasty sunburn and we were all getting tired - up to the rooms we went! And to my surprise, it was not an ordinary room I found… but a gorgeous, giant suite that was absolutely DECKED in bachelorette gear!

Bailey had gone all out with balloons and streamers and signs and pink penis straws (WHAT! It was a bachelorette!!!!) and a veil, feather boa, sparkly tiara and bow headband for me to wear. I was dying. It was everything I ever wanted and more. Greene also gave me the MOST perfect card, and Floff surprised me with a leopard print garter, sparkly hair clips, and an amazing rhinestone BRIDE pin. My friends are the cutest.



Ha! This was hilarious - my adorable sister thought this would be enough food for nineteen hungry #bacheloraffians - one tub of licorice, one bag of chips, one box of Cheetos and a thing of Wheat-Thins. #naive #wearehungrierthanthat #sillybailey


After we cleaned off and rested and got all settled, the group gathered in the suite to hang out for a bit and have some pre-dinner drinks - I couldn't help taking a million pics!










HOW CUTE IS THIS GROUP SHOT?!!??!


After those billion photos, we all packed into the rental cars and drove to my favorite fancy restaurant in Tucson, Wildflower! I laughed out loud when Bailey said "Hi, we're the ones with the reservation for 19 people." We had a delicious dinner - I ate my favorite salmon/potato appetizer, then made a toast and almost started crying in the middle of the restaurant.


At one point Bailey had some wine and decided to try on all the married/engaged ladies' rings! #BLINGBLING



The night wasn't over yet… when we got back to the hotel, Bailey had some more tricks up her sleeve…. I was sent out of the room for a minute and when I came back in, everyone was wearing CUSTOM MATCHING SHIRTS THAT SAID "THE QUEEN HAS FOUND HER KING!!!!!!" Excuse me, I almost cried then too. More on the shirts later, I am freaking obsessed with them in an unnatural and unhealthy way :)

After I had calmed down from the shirt surprise, I was treated to another surprise - they played the cutest game where I was asked to answer questions from Rami's perspective, and then they played videos of Rami answering the same questions! Kind of like the Newlywed Game… it was adorable. Let me just say my future husband LOVES him some camera time :) what a ham.

My amazing friends weren't even done yet…  they gave me a tiny package containing a little Shutterfly book - everyone had sent in pictures and letters about their earliest memories of me! Once I opened the book, I was just done. Totally cried. Had to basically be put to bed like a small child.



Wow… this many pictures and I haven't even gotten to talk about day 2? It'll have to wait :) check back tomorrow for more #bacheloraff shenanigans!!!
