Also know as my bachelorette party!
This is more or less an extension of last week's post, where I outfitted what I planned on wearing to dinner. As you can see in the photo above, I ending up modifying my outfit a bit. I mean, who can resist a bright pink belt and heels? Especially when they match your bestie's accessories too? And yes, I did have boys on this trip. If you haven't figured it out yet, I'm pretty non-traditional. I've known these boys for 20 years now. Twenty. More than half my life. They are so much a part of who I am and it really made me so happy that they came out (despite how weird the notion was). Plus, don't they look adorable in their zebra bow ties?
When I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do, I really took into account the people I wanted to invite. As much as I wanted to go on a cruise or a longer trip, I realized that not everyone could get that much time off or had the money to spare. So many ideas were thrown around (Disneyland was super high on that list.. its always high the list), until one fateful day TrazelZoo sent an email about a local promotion.
My jaw dropped. What? A safari? In California? And wait.. wait.. what's this? O-M-G. THEY HAVE CHEETAHS.
I love cheetahs. Since.. I don't even know. They were my first loves, but I'd never seen one in person. I spent a lot of time looking at them. I even submitted a drawing of a cheetah cub (have you seen a cheetah cub btw? Freakin' adorable) to the National Geographic Kids magazine. It has been a life long goal to see one - OK, I lie. Its a life long goal to hug one, but being able to finally see not one, but four in person came pretty darn close.
So with my go-ahead, my amazing maid of honor go to planning. And crafting. And baking. She's really quite talented, that one. Make sure to check out Anna's blog to see what goodies she whipped up for the party. And then, keep scrolling to check out all the action from this weekend:

In case you were wondering what this magical place is, its Safari West, located in Santa Rosa. We stayed overnight in one of their "tents" and did the Winos and Rhinos tour. I really recommend this place. The staff was super friendly - especially our tour guide. It can get a bit noisy in the morning, so if you're a light sleeper, I highly suggest bringing ear plugs--oh, and warm clothing. The temperature drops pretty fast.
Happy Thursday everyone! Thanks for reading!
