Wedding Recap #2 - The Bachelorette Party continues

Full up on tequila and tortilla chips, the group headed to Dance Fabulous for Sister's surprise activity of the night... sassy dance lessons!  As a major fan of So You Think You Can Dance and all cheesy dance movies (Center Stage, Step Up, etc.), we knew the bride would have a blast learning a few new steps.  Not just any steps mind you - steps that could lead to some extra cash (or at least some extra compliments from the groom).

That's right all - this group of slightly intoxicated girls learned how to bend and shimmy and shake with the best of them.  Eight folding chairs and two stripper poles later, we were ready to go down State Street and earn back some of our margarita money!  We practiced pole dancing moves, we learned how to seduce our men with lap dances - it was the most scandalous hour and a half of most of our lives.  Everyone had an absolute blast, and we learned that my sister has a disturbingly good natural ability to dance on a pole; the "instructor" would show her one move and she'd improvise three more after it!  Who knew!  I guess it's nice for her to have options in case the whole non-profit-do-good job doesn't pay off... Suggestions for an (in)appropriate work moniker for my baby sister?

[P.S. This would be when I accidentally walked in on the instructor/stripper using the restroom.  I was definitely more embarrassed than she was.  Do people in this line of work forget to lock bathroom doors intentionally?  Thoughts?  Ponder for a bit.]

Post-dance class we sashayed our way back to the hotel to imbibe in chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake (a la Cheesecake Factory - thank you, AL), puppy chow (gracias MOH), and veggies and dip (a healthy option from JB).  We delivered the remainder of the naughty honeymoon gifts to the bride - again, the one item she would need to wear each night of her honeymoon.  Before we got the dance class, we gave her some retro heels (they had a 1970s hooker vibe, but don't worry, they came from Payless).  Then, she received a tame nightie, some lotion, and a not-so-tame night outfit (ew... still not okay thinking about my little sister wearing any of those things!).

After a few drinking game versions of Apples to Apples, us older girls (JB and myself) called it a night, and left the younger crowd of ladies to stay up until 3:00am-ish chatting and catching up.  All in all, the bar has been set quite high for some sort of bachelorette celebration next spring... :)
