Before I get into all of the bachelorette party debauchery, I wanted to say a BIG thank you to all of your sweet comments on the previous post about my Father. It definitely was not easy for me to talk about but I'm glad that I did because I was so touched by all of your sweet words. Things like that make me so amazed at the power of the blog world and the strong connections that you make with people. So, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!
Now onto something completely on the other end of the spectrum! This past weekend, we traveled to Chicago for the weekend for my bachelorette party. We stayed at the amazing W Lakeshore downtown and I have to say that it was one of the best hotel stays that I have ever had. The hotel was BEAUTIFUL, it is in a great location, has 2 bars/lounges on-site and the staff was absolutely wonderful. They really make you feel like royalty! We spent both nights going out to several bars, restaurants and of course shopping on Michigan Avenue during the day! I didn't make it to bed before 4:30 either night so I have definitely been trying to make up for that the past couple of days! I have been to Chicago a million times because I have family in the area, but I have never really been for something like a bachelorette party so I have to give another shout-out/thank you to Nina for hooking us up on all of her wonderful suggestions on where to go. Your suggestions were definitely put to good use. Thanks, Nina!
Now onto the pictures! It was difficult to actually find some G-rated ones that were appropriate for the blog world but I have come up with a few to share! In the pictures you will see that my lovely MOH Ashley had shirts made for everyone to wear when we were hanging out in the hotel room and as a keepsake. Everyone also had gift bags with a logo on the front that said "Gettin' Down in Chi-Town... Angela's Last Call" and the date. The bags had beads with the logo also on them along with some personalized koozies for everyone, water bottles with the logo on the label, Vitamin Water (for hangovers! ha!) and some other little things. Anyway, here are some shots of the action!
Those are really about as "family friendly" as it gets. Of course I had all of the usual penis perephenalia but I also had a "Soon to be Mrs. Griffin" sash that I hope you can see in some of the pictures. We had SUCH a great time, I definitely could have stayed for a couple more days!
Well I better get back to planning.... Im getting married in FOUR DAYS!!!!!! WOOHOOO!!!
