Travel :: Bachelorette in St Louis

A week and a half ago I headed to St Louis {by way of Kansas City} for a Bachelorette party for a close friend.  It couldn't have been more perfect! Well except for the drive from Kansas City to St Louis where we got stuck in traffic because of a horrible wreck, had to stop 45 times for 7 girls to go to the bathroom, and then, on the out skirts of downtown St. Louis, getting pulled over by a cop to give us a ticket in a safe zone. Wondering what a safe zone is? So were we... the only thing we learned was that it doubled the price of the ticket.  Alas, we made it in time to watch our beloved Wildcats finish beating KU and with plenty of time to get in our sequined best to celebrate our friends upcoming nuptials.

I'm positive everyone thought we were lost and confused in the wrong state with all of our purple Kansas State shirts.  Quiet fans we are not...

Bachelorette pre-party at the hotel downtown.

All dressed up with somewhere to go!

Kansas State Chi O's taking over the lobby.

At dinner, bottles of wine flowing, preparing mentally for...

Dancing on the stage at the piano bar, taking over just like we used to in college.

The next day was obviously not a good feeling one {even though it just happened to also be my birthday!}. It was basically surrounded around...

Birthday mimosas!  We went to a fabulous place called Blondie's walking distance from our hotel. Two bottles of champagne, 3 different juices, the best coffee on the planet, and 3 hours later, I barely made my flight back to Dallas!

Well I am finally recovered from this trip to St Louis, and I will be doing it again in 2 weeks for the wedding.
