So Thursday morning started late, of course. We had to get the pets to the kennel, the Little Man needed to be washed and packed up for a week at Ex's, the bags needed last minute everything - our plan was to leave at 9:30 and we definitely left the house closer to 10:30. By the time we dropped off Little Man, we ended up doing the Home Alone dash through the airport, racing to our gate just as the last two people were boarding the flight. Of course that means on Southwest that we didn't get to sit together -ugh- but I made friends with a nice couple and we watched movies together the whole flight. I assume Hubs had fun, he sent a beer my way
When we finally navigated our way to the MGM and talked to the wedding guests (most of them had arrived on an early morning flight), we made plans for that night's bachelor/bachelorette party. After a quick dinner in the food court everyone went back to their room for naps/drinks before the night began... and it was an absolute blast. Nothing went according to plan of course, because that's how I roll... the guys and girls decided to stay together instead of splitting up, we left an hour late because of excessive picture taking (and because girls take forever to get ready), everyone was exhausted, there were no cabs to be found - but somehow it all managed to work out amazingly. We got the guys in free everywhere because there were plenty of girls with them, because there were so many of us we got pulled out of the long cab line to a limo service that was even cheaper than two cabs would have been... Everything just worked out great!
I had so much fun that night, and I couldn't have asked for better support from my friends. They took care of all the hassle of collecting money and calling the limo driver for return trips, getting us into a club without waiting in line, making sure I didn't get kicked out of a club due to a drunk girl stealing my tiara - it was fantastic. It really hit me that night that everyone had gone out of their way to make my wedding an amazing event that I would never forget. I knew right then that a destination wedding was a perfect choice for us.
Because my best friends have not given me permission to make them famous, I leave you with pictures of me and Hubs enjoying our night in style.
|He cleans up nice doesn't he?|
|I hated my shoes, but they were oh so cute.|
|Limo kisses for the future Hubs.|
