Kentucky Derby Bachelorette Party!

Sooo..having two weddings two weeks apart means that bridal showers and bachelorette parties will be close to each other. The bachelorette parties were back-to-back weekends. I was SO sick last weekend (I still had fun though and I'm so glad I went), so I made sure to rest all week this week for this weekend. I didn't want to be sick again. I would come home from school this week and just fall right asleep and I'm not a person who takes naps EVER! I just can't take naps. I'm bad at it (if that's possible). Ha. Well, I felt like I rose from the dead on Friday and felt so much better. I still have a little bit of a cough, but I don't need medicine anymore, which is great because I don't like taking medicine  at all!

This Bachelorette Party was so much fun! It fell on the same day as the Kentucky Derby, so it was Kentucky Derby theme! We wore the big hats, drank pink champagne, got a limo, and went to the casino (My FIRST time!).

What I wore:

Ralph Lauren Hat with Ribbon from TJ Maxx (last year) similar to this for $3.50!!!
4 foot pearl necklace from Premier Jewelry (last year for a wedding I was in) similar to this for $16.00!
Gold with Black Polka Dotted Dress from TJ Maxx similar to this cute one for $22.80!
Black wedge sandals from TJ Maxx (on clearance NOW) similar to these for $20!

Limo Ride with Pink Champagne!

    A bachelorette party just isn't quite the same unless it features some sexy talent to give the bride-to-be and her best friends something to think about before the wedding. Hand select one of our finest male dancer for the party and everybody who comes to the party will be thanking you.
