It’s 107 days until my wedding… holy crap! I’ve stayed pretty on top of most of the planning thus far (if I do say so myself) so most of the items left on my to do list are finalizing various lists and a few small DIY projects. The only big item left was my bachelorette party.
I hemmed and hawed over what I wanted to do. My bridal party is small, and I’m not a big party-goer. There are tons of great bars and clubs downtown, but I can honestly say I think I’ve been to one and it’s just not my scene. Short skirts, tight shirts and high heels… definitely not me. And since I’ve been cooped up inside, I finally devoted some time to internet sleuthing about my bachelorette options.
And I came up with the best idea ever.
We’re going to Rolex! I mean, seriously — it’s fucking perfect. We’ll go down Friday night after I get off work, watch Cross Country on Saturday and Stadium Jumping on Sunday. We’ll shop for pretty pony things, eat some barbeque and drink some wine… and I’ll be surrounded by horses. And horse people. And horse stuff.
Yeah, I’m fucking brilliant.
So this week I booked the hotel and bought the tickets online. I’m so geeked; I haven’t been to Rolex since 2008, where I got to meet the amazing and fabulous Teddy O’Connor (RIP). My maid of honor has never been, so I’m pumped to experience this with her. And my sister is thrilled that she A) doesn’t have to come and B) doesn’t have to drive OR drink…. my family is weird. But everyone is happy, and best of all…
