my bachelorette bash : hong kong

let's get back to that bachelorette business, shall we?

so onward we travelled! after a slow start to the morning and quite a bit of advil,
the girls put on their bliss puffy eye patches (amazing)
and got back into the spirit of the weekend!

my girls crafted a candy table with candy and snacks from around the world.
that might have been the number one contributor at each of my meals.

great britain!
oh and here is the little menu for the weekend:
oh and this sign was on the door when we arrived at the house the night before.
i may have been a little too into the party to notice it...
oh and texas candy. duh!
the t-shirts were the greatest things ever.
my sister heather, our resident graphic designer, made them.
and definitely fiesta-ed like there was no maƱana!
to start the day, we played a "lindsey quiz."
all the girls answered the questions and then compared their answers with my own.
kristen even called andrew and got his answers earlier in the week!
it was so cute- he got the highest score!

there was also another game that i somehow didn't photograph.
it was a series of quotations and the girls were supposed to guess who said them-
me or andrew!
it was hysterical!

and then we ventured out into the most beautiful day of all time!
the sun was shining and the breeze was cool!
i'm not even sure we closed any of the doors until the sun went down.
literally, it was perfect weather.
then the ladies revealed the next surprise-
spa day!
i got the greatest massage of my life,
a facial,
and a pretty hilariously bad manicure.
but lord knows i was gonna scuff those nails up within a matter of hours anyway,
so i wasn't too stressed about it.
i struggle with nail polish.
then we decided it was officially happy hour time
(or, as they say, it was 5:00 somewhere!)
our lovely bartender came out with a tray full of grapefruit/tequila shots!
a handful of us even got in the pool.
it was terribly cold, but refreshing.
cheers, bitches!
what a fun day!
and the evening was just around the corner...


binders full of women : halloween 2012

you know this is a catch up blog, since it's about halloween.

halloween was great! and, if i may say, our costume was pretty awesome.

this was aubrey's idea, and haley and i totally jumped on board.
 we made our front and back covers, as well as the spine out of foam board.
aubrey went above and beyond- making metal tabs and rings to look just like a binder.
it surely was not the most comfortable costume of all time, but worth any discomfort.
 clearly, this binder belongs to mitt.
and you can't see aubrey behind her tab.
 we each had a headband with our names.
of course, we used our married names.
 clipboard to look ultra-stereotypically business-y.
 mrs. lerner!
 mrs. braglia!
 and mrs. gill.
 and what was toby, you ask?
he was a topo chico!
 or rather, a
tobe-o chico.
i managed to decorate,
despite overwhelming business.
 tony romo made it to the party!
rob thought this costume was particularly funny,
as we are all cowboy fans.
andrew didn't dress up (shocking!)
but he did grill us a massive pile of kabobs.
they were amazing. 
 oh and lance armstrong stopped by too.
 he and tony are buds.
 then he invited us to all take tequila shots out of his trophies.
after said tequila shots,
the other guests realized that these were not really trophies.
rather, they were tiny plastic toys made in indonesia that were undoubtably
painted with some sort of toxic chemical.
hurray, halloween!
(also- i like how you can see we were trying to watch hocus pocus in the background)
 this nose got passed around.
 tony did a lot of this pose throughout the evening.
 and then mrs. lerner broke her tab.
happy halloween!
sorry for the late-ness.
i'll give you a christmas post soon.
