is it really monday already?

Monday, June 15, 2009

as i type this i have "wasted" a perfectly good sunday afternoon/evening by being too hungover to function. i absolutely hate when this happens, but when the saturday events that caused the wasted sunday were as fun as they were it makes it a little easier to stomach.

but let's take a step back.

as i mentioned in
last friday's post i worked the saganaki (flaming cheese) booth at my church's summerfest on friday. my mother, sissy, cousin jenna, cathy, thea susie and myself all held down the booth while screaming opa, causing a scene greek dancing, cooked and ate copious amounts of cheese all while making some money for the church. another year, another good time.

after the booth sissy and i headed back to our mom's house with carla and jenny for a night cap. which in all truthfulness are the best types of caps don't you think?

cue saturday where i was beyond booked, with three bachelorette parties and two bridal showers. but i can only be one place at a time so i participated in the giff's shower/bachelorette get together over at beaver's condo in westlake.

we started the day early with a pool party laying in the sun and drinking more champagne than one would consume on new years eve. it was a great day with friends that involved a taste test of some interesting shots...

a while back i was approached with the opportunity to taste test some new premixed shot concoctions from DeKuyper called Burst Bar Shots. i was sent three varieties - lemon drop, alabama slammer, and sex on the beach. and what a better opportunity to test them out than a bachelorette party?

and test them we did, although we had a first initial concern - they were only 40 proof alcohol, which you could clearly taste, because the shots were thick and ultra sugary. it's like they needed to kick up the flavor alcohol.

out of the three flavors i was sent (they're many more listed online) sex on the beach was best one with the alabama slammer being downright undrinkable, frankly it tasted like nyquil without the benefit of knocking you out.

i'll give the burst bar shots the convenience of having the shot being in one bottle, but any experienced drinker will probably be turned away by the taste. with that being said, high school drinkers will love the stuff cause they don't know any better.

cheers to DeKuyper and their "interesting" burst bar shots!

the giff showing off "the underwear book" that the beav made her - it's a bachelorette staple around our parts

after drunken make-up and hair-do sessions 10 of us that were still standing after 9 hours of drinking headed to the ironwood cafe. walking into this bar was hilarious because no only did we turn heads like nobody's business but we turned the bar into a dance club.

patron xo and bailey's shot all around

blair dancing to the beat of her own drum and jilly being awesome as always

beaver laughing at MOB who was pretending it was her birthday (it is on tuesday!)

around 1am muffin and i headed downtown to meet-up with some friends for some wally world festivities at harbor inn, the event was winding down as we got there and so was i. all this girl wanted after over 12 hours of boozing was a gyro and her bed because if it's even possible to do i drank myself "sober".

"sober" is being used lightly though because sunday sure as heck didn't feel like i was "sober" the night before. dear lord no.

i hope that the giff has a blast cause i know i sure did and i can't wait for her wedding in july.

also, i have one more exciting bit of news to share. one of my very best friends poo poo had a healthy and beautiful baby boy named sam last thursday night and i simply cannot wait to meet him. congrats poo poo my friend, someone else is now going to call you mom instead of me now. xoxo.

  1. Gotta love bachelorette parties, people choose to be extra inappropriate those times. LOL. How are you feeling right now? Better function soon before Monday rolls around.

    ps. Monday should be a holiday too!

  2. I hate that wasted weekend feeling!!! I also agree with andhari that Monday should be part of the weekend!!!

    Sounds like you have a busy year for weddings and drinking yourself sober sounds perfectly normal...but it is a shame you can't drink the hangover off! X

  9. Good heavens that was a long party day on Saturday! It sounds like a lot of fun though and next year, I want to come to the Greek festival!

  10. Those drinks bring back bad memories of mixing the sour apple stuff with anything that we had at the moment.

  11. This is your best weekend recap in a while! I so wish I could have been there - soon enough my friend. Love and miss you so much - Sammy is looking forward to meeting his Mommy Lexi Poo!

  12. You are my hero. 'Enuf said.

    Congrats to your friend!

  13. Looks like a fantastic time and I agree with you, Alabama Slammer isn't really a drink, maybe better used as a floor polish?

    ReplyDelete
  14. That sounds like a phenomenal, albeit exhausting, weekend.

  15. Patron shots are a fave of mine but yes they do make the next day pretty difficult. Those are the days when me and my couch are reunited as the bff's that we are.

  16. The girl wearing the blue necklace?

    We would totes be best friends.

    "And we're the THREE BEST FRIENDS that ever there will be, the THREE BEST FRIENDS..."

    Yes, I saw The Hangover AGAIN this weekend. Why?

  17. This looks like quite the weekend! Definitely worth the "wasted" Sunday for such a Saturday.

  18. ok next, post what an underwear book is.....?

    those hangovers suck. its been awhile, but i have a hard time catching up on my sleep!

  19. Is it bad that I spent like two minutes trying to figure out how poo poo (as in poop) could have a baby before I finished reading the sentence and it all became clear.

    Then I didn't do that.

    Sounds like a great weekend!

  20. "three bachelorette parties and two bridal showers"

    How is that even possible outside an episode of Big Love?

    ReplyDelete
  21. i would also like some more information on this underwear book...!!

    hee, sounds like a hangover that was totally worth it :-)

  22. Not surprised the Alabama slammer sucked. That sounds like a prison. I don't want to drink anything that tastes like a southern prison.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Alabama Slammers are possibly the grossest thing I have ever drunk. Anything involving SoCo always gives me that Nyquil-y aftertaste.

  24. another rock star weekend, i love it. seriously looks like so much fun. and don't feel too bad i was pretty hungover yesterday too, thank goodness for a comfy couch and movies to be watched :)

  25. Saganaki is TO DIE ;) Actually, my family is going to The Mad Greek for Father's Day and I'm salivating at the thought of ordering one of my most favorite apps. . .OPA!

    ps - Do you approve of The Mad Greek? Just curious! xo*

  26. Love all the crazy monikers you have for your friends. Sort of glad I don't know you in person - I mean, Poo Poo?!?! I'd be worried about what I'd get saddled with.

  27. My bachelorette party invite must have gotten lost in the mail.

    I have a police outfit

  28. everything is always more fun, pre-hangover. sounds like a great time. i hate that too hungover to function feeling. its the worst

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've defintely had weekends like that - but it's not always because I'm hungover, sometimes I just waste time and feel like 'where did Friday go?'

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yum! Flaming cheese at this Greek restaurant up the street from my work is the BEST!

    Actually, now I have to go get some.

    Thanks a lot.

    My butt curses you.

    Anyway your weekend looked like a blast! I miss it...but not the hangover.

  31. Those drinks sound really interesting. Is it bad that I kinda rejoiced when I read that the Alabama drink was gross? Because anything Alabama-themed is.

  32. It must be hard being the coolest chick in Cleveland.

    Looks like all on hand had an excellent time, and def worth the sunday in bed.

  33. I really want to lay by the pool drinking champagne now.
