Last night, in an effort to have some good girl time (one of the items on yesterday’s list), I attended a bachelorette party at Grand Lake. A special thanks to my friend Jerry Brother for letting 27 girls invade his house for a little pre-wedding party time. And congrats to the bride-to-be, Courtney, on her upcoming marriage. I hope she enjoyed her last weekend as a “Miss.”
Normally these types of parties are not really my style. I’m a little more modest and reserved then most. Seeing a girl decked out in penis attire makes me a little uncomfortable at best. But I needed a girls’ night out and I was determined to have a good time. So I did. J
The majority of the girls there were sorority sisters from my days at NSU so the company was good. We went to Ugly’s, which is normally dead on a Friday night, but we definitely brought the party, as you can imagine. J I was especially excited to see my friend Leanne there, who is planning her own wedding for next summer.

Leanne is one of the classiest people I know. I truly enjoy her company and respect her more then she could ever know. We sat together while the bride-to-be was getting the party warmed up with her lap dance by a strange man and a little karaoke. J She and I engaged in a much-needed heart-to-heart, which of course, included a little talk of the male population. I am so happy that someone with such a genuinely sweet spirit is so happy and I wish her the best of everything in her life and future marriage. And because she seems so genuinely happy with her future, I listened when she suggested a book to me. The book, which shall remain nameless for now, was already downloaded to my iBooks before we left Ugly’s and I completed reading it today. It was so elementary, yet insightful. I enjoyed reading it and I hope the future Mrs. Stephens is happy to know that I have already started following “the rules,” as hard as they may be. I am after all, good with lists, so the challenge presented in this book should be easy for me to take on. Once I reread it a couple times and apply it to my life for a couple months, I will share the title and information on the book with you and let you know how it worked for me. For now, based on who may be reading this blog, I would prefer to keep this journey between me and Leanne. J
So I am happy to report that I have one girls’ night and one more book under my belt. That’s two things I can cross off that bucket list…
