She was such a great sport throughout the party. Embarrassed on occasion by the personal gifts given to her by her wonderful friends. My daughter is very very beautiful but she is also unbelievably modest. After a few drinks she did lighten up quite a bit. The whistle she was given shaped like a certain male body part was blown more and more as the shots came her way!
I made my daughter a couple of things. I got the tutorials to make them from one of my absolutely favorite blogs Shanty2chic.
I made her this plaque. Honestly, I had my doubts about how this was turning out. It just needed something but I couldn't come up with what! Eventually I decided to do a finish on it. It came out pretty good. Again, had my doubts but it all came out great in the end.
here. I made mine on a piece of MDF.
I also made her a set of apothecary jars. I had made a set for myself and my mom too. I did hers a little different.
tutorial style they made the best and went with it. Again, she loved it. I used some wired edge burlap ribbon I had to embellish them. They came out great I think. I tried to make them a little different from mine and my mom's set.
After the gifts were given it was off to the bachelorette party WOO HOOO! Nope no male dancers, (not that I didn't beg for them!) strippers or any kind of pickup bar! My daughter isn't into that kind of thing. We had a blast though. An unexpected one.
We went to a restaurant/bar in Rockwall close to home. It had recently started having dueling pianos much like the place downtown called "Pete's Piano bar" which is a really fun place to go. We had been before to Pete's. My brother in law Richard, worked there in the past. He is not actually my brother in law. To be exact he is my brother's brother in law! Yeah, go figure out that one!!! Richard is a VERY talented pianist. He is actually a Grammy award winner. He wrote some of the music in the Beverly Hills Cop II or III and the soundtrack won a Grammy! Pretty cool huh! How many peeps can say they have a Grammy award winner in the family? Anyway, I got off track there! The surprise was when we walked into Avante, there was our bro Richard! We had no idea he worked there! So he really did make the night special. See the pics. As you can see it was a blast!
