Hen's Night!











It has been pretty crazy lately, and looks set to get even crazier, so I have decided to forgo any semblance (as small as it often is in my case!) of a meaningful post and just write about my hen's night, complete with the less incriminating photos.

It really was a wonderful night though. I felt so loved and realised how lucky I am to have such lovely friends. My sister organised the whole thing. In case I haven't mentioned it before, she the most thoughtful person I know. Which sucks around Christmas/my parent's birthdays because she always gets the perfect gift whereas I tend to mess up (I got my dad Mein Kampf for father's day once because he loves history and I thought it would be an interesting glimpse into the mind of a mad man. Let's just say he was less than impressed).

But basically she got anything anatomy related that she could find (and I think she found everything), which very much appealed to both of our senses of humour. Then we all ate chinese food and sushi, drank cocktails (that my lovely friend Megan provided because she is in America at the moment), and danced (Ok, I danced. Just me. I get too enthusiastic sometimes).

Then my friend showed up as a 'Hot Cop' because he knows Arrested Development is my favourite show. (There was no stripping. I cannot stress that enough. I am such a prude I probably would have cried.). That pretty much made my night.

Then my sister and my friends surprised me with a limo they had organised to drive us around the city for an hour. There was even champagne. It was pretty amazing.

Lastly we finally went into the city and I had to complete a number of dares, like finding someone to 'walk me down the aisle', buy me a drink etc. We met so many lovely people that night who helped us finish our dares without being 'too nice'.

The only downer was when I fell down the stairs and hurt my wrist. I would blame it on the cocktails, but I had already tripped down the steps at home twice that morning and so I think I just wasn't made to stay standing upright.

And that was my night. Not the most exciting post I know, nor the most coherent..but hey, I tried!

I bet you had so much fun! You are so lucky to have such an amazing, wonderful sister and friends! Girl power!

I'm sorry to hear you fell down the stairs -- at least the rest of the night made up for that incident. Heels + cocktails + stairs is always a bad combination.

That sounds like so much fun! I'm pleased you had such a great night =) I am also pleased that you like the look of Annabel Langbeins recipe book, honestly, it is amazing! I definitely recommend trying one of her recipes from her website to get a feel for her style, but honestly, her books are amazing! Totally inspires me to cook =)
