the end of an era (EVERYBODY DRINK!)


We wanted an excuse to have a party...

And I wanted to set a hard date on when my last glass of wine would be before we started trying to have a baby. 

Yes, friends...we've done the marriage part, and now we're starting to think about the next chapter. The sore feet, weird cravings, sleepless nights, goo-goo-ga-ga chapter :)

And thus, the "We're Not Pregnant, EVERYBODY DRINK!" party was born. The concept was simple...it was going to be my last night of partying before cutting myself off. And for all of my other girlfriends...it manifested in them celebrating their years of religiously taking their pills and NOT skipping to the baby chapter a little too early.

I know it's alright to keep drinking occasionally until you find out you're pregnant...but I'm 23. It's better to just throw a hard limit on it and know for sure that we've done everything we can to make a healthy baby. 

So, I made your typical spread of baked goods, you know...pregnancy test sugar cookies, planB cupcakes, rockets as birth control pills...



And then I gathered up your typical props, like oversize baby bottles, booze, cigarettes, soothers, "My Mom is Hot" bibs...

And we all had a great time being unfit parents in my living room photobooth:











And we even had faux-baby-shower games. Like who can name the most mixed drinks or brands of alcohol that have baby names in it...


SOME OF OUR FAVOURITES:

Bailey's
Jack Daniels
Alexander Keith's
HeineKEN (this was Beans' addition, and it counted for a half-point)
Margarita
Sherry
Sam Adams
Prince Igor
Jose Cuervo
Martini
Kahlua (stripper names were deemed acceptable)
Stella
Captain Morgan
Bud (hillbillies are people too)
Tom Collins
...you get the idea.

Or who can blow up the biggest condom in 30 seconds...




I love my friends. And I love that the next party we throw might be an actual baby shower...






Beans telling a riveting story:


We have this one friend who makes the BEST faces everytime the camera comes out. I couldn't resist this collage.


Savouring my last glass of wine...


Onto the next chapter... :)
