Do you have computer paper?
My MOH, JR (initials abbrv), shipped an enormous box to my place from NYC. I never saw it, but when I called my leasing office to inquire about its arrival, the lady didn't sound very pleased that it was there because of its size! lol JR and bridesmaid LK picked it up and I was so curious as to what it was. This is what it was...
A board game!!! How do people come up with these amazing, creative ideas?! Every time you landed on a picture of me with some guy, I had to tell the story behind the picture. Yikes, lol. The other squares you could land on were 'socials', 'loves' and 'woo' cards. Socials were a topic where everyone had to participate with what the card said and drink. Love cards were reasons why Mr. P loves me. Aww. And Woo cards (my favorites!) were cards that said something cute or fun or silly and everyone just yells "wooo!" afterwards. It sounds funny, but once you're doing it in person, it makes sense and is silly fun. Example: "Kiana is getting married!!" "Wooo!!" Get it?? haha
Playing the game. LK on left, me in middle and CM (Jay Waddles sleep talker) on right.

Bridesmaid CM sleep talking: *Giggle* "Jay Waddles!" *Giggle*
Bridesmaid JR & Me: *Laughter* "What did she just say?? Jay WADDLES?"
Bridesmaid CM now half-conscious: *Giggle* "Did I just say that out loud?"
Bridesmaid JR & Me: "Haha, YES! What's Jay Waddles??"
Bridesmaid CM: "Jay Waddles. He's the midget...he's, he's the dwarf stripper at your bachelorette party. It says 'Jay Waddles' on his shirt. Jay Waddles...'cause he waddles."
Bridesmaid JR & Me: "Huh?! Whaaaa?!" *Laughter*

Tina is seriously so sweet and I can't believe the kind words she said about me and my blog when she tagged me! I'm mega busy and cheating by not tagging anyone (sorry!) but I, of course, still wanted to express my gratitude and thanks to Tina. Thank you!!
Thank you SO much to Tina from Tina & Steve for this Blog Award.
Check out her fab blog!
The B-Party was supposed to be on Friday night, but it JUST got changed to Saturday night yesterday because my bridesmaid who did the majority of the planning for it was all of a sudden not going to be able to make it from out of town. (The situation was out of her hands.) So we accommodated her and so glad we did because it's going to be a blast and she'll see the fruits of her labor!
So everything for this weekend is supposed to be a surprise, but I've been getting some really interesting/funny questions asked of me that all start out with, "Okay, random question...." or "Random question...and don't ask me why I'm asking..." lol.
Here are some of the questions I've been asked over the past couple weeks:
- What's the name of that guy you hooked up with in college that you brought to Harry's once? (Harry's is the restaurant I did marketing for and I guessed about 5 guys before I got this one right, oh geez)
- Do you have a single hole punch?
- Is there a Party City near your place?
- Do you have a portable CD player?
- Tell me the story of how you and Mr. P met.
- Do you have a blow-up doll? (I think this one was to throw me off haha)
- Who was the other bartender that worked with Vespa? (Vespa is the last name of a guy I had a thing with in college...and his fellow bartender as you can tell lol oh goodness)
- Do you have a hot glue gun or super glue?
- Do you have computer paper?
I can ONLY imagine what's in store for Saturday night! My own B-Party & Shower will be my first! I have no idea what to expect except for FUN. (Expect except, whoa that was a hard one lol.)
This weekend will be jam-packed because the girls arrive tomorrow night and late Friday night and my mom arrives on Saturday. Saturday afternoon is my first official dress fitting! SO excited for my bridesmaids to all be there for that. Then the B-Party is that night, then the Shower the next day at 1 p.m., then the girls leave. My mom and I will be meeting with a hair stylist, my planner at the ceremony site and do the food tasting at the hotel all on Saturday. She doesn't know it yet, but in spare time, she will be helping me with my big invitations project!
Hopefully there will be pictures galore next week!

Anyway, more details on the actual weekend later. The matter at hand is a special thank you gift. Mr. P's best friend/man's mom stepped up to the plate and kindly offered her home for the bridal shower location after only meeting me TWO times, and recently might I add. Some people are so genuinely nice and really want to help out. I was going to have it at my apartment - talk about cramped! And without any family here, Mr. P's mom having passed and his father not being in good enough condition to have anyone in his house, I was at a loss to keep things on a budget for my girls. So, the apartment it was until Suzanne came along.
Obviously I need to get her something as a special thank you for this. We're going to try to go over to her house this weekend to say 'hi' and give her the gift. So I thought, who better to ask then all of you for ideas on what to get her.
I'm on a budget of course, I'm thinking no more than $35. I could get her one thing or a bunch of little things and the sorority girl in me can arrange them super cute in a basket or something like this:
I think I'm too short on time for anything DIY except maybe a nice card. That's about as far as I've gotten lol.
Any ideas? What do you think would be appropriate?
