Stick A Fork In Me

I’m Done.

That’s what I said to Eric when he arrived to pick me up last night at 3:30am!! LOL

My only goal last night was to ensure that my friend Jen had the best bachelorette experience possible!  You only get one shot at it, right?

Here we are living it up on the dance floor of a gay bar called ‘Zippers’ in Toronto.

Notice there is no money- this pic was taken this morning! :)

Beautiful black chandelier earrings that were a gift from my sister to myself and her bridesmaids for her wedding:

I did some loose beachy wave curls with my curling iron. I was pretty impressed that they stayed in the whole night! I made a point not to touch my hair all night and I think it worked.

  • Cardigan: Smart Set
  • Black V-neck top: Bebe
  • Jeans: Gap, curvy straight leg

I got to the hotel to meet the girls at 10pm. Jen loved her gift that I got her!

They had some really cute I Do cups and other fun plates and napkins:

How cute is Jen? :)

Putting on her pink heels:

We left for the first bar called Zelda’s around midnight. Much to our disappointment, we missed the drag show so we just stayed for a drink or two.

We had the only straight waiter in the bar and he was loving the ladies!

Jen with ‘Felicia’. He showed us his business card.

Luckily I didn’t do any Tequila shots!!!

Around 1am, we were off to the next and final bar called Zippers.

We danced the night away until the bar closed at 3am.

The dance floor had a fan- awesomeness! Lindsay and I were loving it. Why can’t all bars have fans on the dance floor?

Our hair held up well even after 2 hours on the dance floor!

Funniest moment of the night: I was in the bathroom waiting for Jen to come out and a drag queen started putting bronzer on my cheeks and chest!!! lol. I was like I’m just going to go with it. :D As you can see my cheeks are quite ‘bronzed’ in the pictures. lol.

From what I recall this is what I had to drink:

  • 2-3 oz. coconut run + diluted grapefruit juice
  • a few sips here and there of other drinks
  • 8oz Pinot Grigo white wine
  • A Screw (OJ + Vodka)

I think that was it?? Oh wait, I was forced to do a half ounce shot of Sour Puss- BLECH I hate that stuff!

I am such a light weight drinker now…one drink and I am feeling it!

Eric stayed in Toronto and hung out at a bar with a couple of his buddies from work. Don’t worry- Eric was DD!! Then he picked me up at 3:30am and we finally got home around 4am.

I immediately did my ‘99.9% effective Hangover Prevention Kit’:

2 glasses of water:

and every vitamin in the cabinet:

I had 1 Spirulina, Vitamin D, Omega 3, Cold FX, and Vitamin C.

Every time I have done this HPK I have never woken up with a hangover!!! No headache or anything. :)

I am very happy to report NO POST-BAR food passed these lips! :) I must have been zonked because I am now starving. I’m going to go make a super detoxifying green monster and probably some toast + margarine (I LOVE toast after a night of drinking!).

All and all it was a super fun night and I am so glad I went!! :) I definitely am not a big partier now, but when I do party, I party hard. Work hard, play hard- that’s what my doctor always tells me!

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to my beautiful mother and sisters and all the mothers out there!!! I wish I could be with my mom today!!!!! miss you guys!!! xoxo

See you later alligators!

Haha! I love the recap of the night! Sounds and looks like you had a great time. And your outfit is ADORABLE… LOVE IT! I don’t know how you can get your hair to stay so perfect until 3am, but I am impressed! :D

Have a wonderful, relaxing Sunday to recover!

You look like you had a blast!

I decided to start a new blog thanks to you and your openness about blogs post. I even told my mom and my husband about it! (they didn’t know about the old one) It seems so much more embarrassing when the “real people” in your life see this stuff…but I am getting over that! Thanks! Please come check it out!

Ah, Zippers. I remember when I first turned 19, we would cross over the border on the weekends so we could drink legally. And Zippers was definitely on the list of bars we went to haha.

Your hair does look great! I wanted to wear my hair in a similar style for an upcoming rehearsal dinner. I think you posted how you got the loose waves before — did you use the same technique?

haha WHAT a hilarious night with all that dancing and all those gays, love it!!! That is totally my fool proof hangover method as well! I just chug water even though i hate it cuz i’m so full of liquids already :D And if i don’t spot any empty bags or crumbs in the morning, I call it a success!
