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
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.
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.
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.
