Bachelorette Birthday Blowout: You Don't Have To Go Home

But you gotta get the hell up outta here!

As late night turned into early morning, one by one we started fading. I can really only speak for myself, but my feet were in PAIN. It was the perfect time to take a little break on one of our couches.

Sleepy girls.

Let's recap this pic: MJ is reviewing pics, BM Despina is dancing with her hands, BM Nikki is...fist pumping (?) and BM Claire is sulking (haha jk Claire).
It might be time to go home.

So we said some goodbyes and thank-yous, rallied the troops, and made our way back to the hotel. 

Remember when I said I have some "drifter" friends? Well, this came into play when we tried to exit the bar and get a cab. Somehow we lost half the group. I have no idea how this happened, but it was a bit chaotic. Let me set the scene:

Location: W. 6th St. outside of the Velvet Dog.
Time: 2am-ish?

BM: We have a cab! Everyone in!
Me: Um...where are the rest of the girls?
BM: We can't wait for them, we gotta go!
Me: Um...I'm going to go find them.
Random Limo Company Guy: Hey! You're a beautiful bride to be. Do you have a limo company for your wedding yet?
Me: Yes. I need to go find my friends.
Random Limo Company Guy: I'd love to drive you around on your wedding day. When is the wedding? Where are you having it?
Me: Thanks. May. It's at Windows. We already have some one. I need to go FIND MY FRIENDS.
RLCG: Blah blah blah hire me instead blah blah blah.
Me: Ok, I have to go now.
BM: EM! We gotta go NOW.
Me: Jesus god where are they? (Runs up and down the street yelling for Tyrone.)
BM: Emily, get in the cab!
(I get in the cab...they can figure out how to get back to the hotel themselves.)
(I get out and run to my asshole friends who are leisurely walking down the street smoking cigs.)
Asshole Friends: Hahaha we're so silly, just strolling down the street, holding everyone else up. La la dee daa!!

One piece of advice if you're going to have a bachelorette party like this: it's not enough to just figure out how to get *to* your party, you really need to figure out how to get back *from* your party.

Here are a few pics from the very end of the night (just so you can see how ridiculous we all were at that point):

Since I was the last person in the cab I had to sit on the FLOOR. 
This made me really happy, as you can tell.

Incredibly unflattering, but we were having a grand time waiting for the hotel elevator.

We were a bit, um, hungry when we got back. 
BM Ena ordered a pizza (not pictured).

All in all, it was an extremely fun party and exactly what I wanted. My girls certainly went above and beyond and for that I will be forever thankful. 

Miss something?


  1. So much fun!!! Bridesmaids are the best!!

  2. What a great party, love your face in the cab! Is your coat "American Rag" from Macy's? I have one that looks just like that!
