The weekend of Debra....

One of my closest girlfriends is getting married in just 6 short weeks. Jeremy and I will be standing up in the wedding, and are honored to be a part of the celebration.

This particular friend does not do anything half way. She likes BIG parties for small occasions (Superbowl, grilling season etc...), and HUGE celebrations for medium occasions (Birthdays, Anniversaries)....so just imagine what a wedding would bring. More pomp and circumstance than anyone could imagine. Now picture an upcoming wedding, combined with her Birthday which also occurred last week...recipe for a massive celebration.

And so ....we celebrated!
First....the Birthday celebration at Manny's. Here,  pictured with a little Birthday dessert. Massive dessert, for a massive birthday....30!!!!

What better way to ring in the new Birthday century, than with a bludgeon of beef???!!!

And the next day...on to Izaty's to celebrate her last few weeks as a Bachelorette....

There are very few photos that are PG enough to post. And really this one is not even PG, but it needed to make it on here regardless. I never said this was a family friendly blog.

Debra and her inflatable Peeper. I spared you the photo of Debra, holding it like a baby. I think this gives you a pretty good idea of the weekend's activities.

As I'm sure you can imagine, we had a great time knitting sweaters, and darning socks, while chatting about politics over cups of tea.

Absolutely not.

Saturday night we went out in Onamia, Minnesota, dressed up in our most attractive former bridesmaid's dresses, and Debra in a lovely vintage 1990 wedding dress. My dress, courtesy of my brother-in-law's sister, was lauded with great applause for it's color, style, and the massive pink sparkly bow adorning the side.
It was quite sexy. Please also note the massive sleeves, which also had crinoline inside of them to increase their height and poufyness. And yes, that was a real bridesmaids dress. And yes, it was horribly uncomfortable, and insanely scratchy, and yes, I do intend on wearing my hair and makeup like that every day going forward.

Again...further details of this weekend are shrouded in secrecy. You should have seen the stripper - and his crazy dance moves. He made Jeremy and I look like we were ready for Dancing with the stars.

Woops. shrouded in secrecy.


Congratulations to the happy couple! Your friends are exhausted. Time to get married so we can all rest.

Kidding. We love you!
