Never have? I've got an idea... head out with a group of 21-25 year olds for a bachelorette party. That'll do it.
Sitting at my computer a month ago, an evite crossed my email. I clicked it and sat carefully reading the words.
You are Invited
Jessica Taylor (my niece)

I almost spit my water onto the screen. Me? Did she really just invite me or is this some sort of address snafu?
I wasn't sure about it. Hey - this girl knows how to dance, drink and have fun. But surely a young lady wouldn't want her OLD Aunt to come along on those festivities?
I stood at her bridal shower awaiting the discussion to begin. My sister in law asked me if I was able to come along.
"She really wants me to come?"
I wasn't being humble or modest - I was dead ass serious.
Alas, she did. She invited all of her aunts, her mom, her cousins. Once I realized I wouldn't be the only old mom there, I jumped at the chance.
Best decision ever.
She looked absolutely stunning. Her girlfriends were beautiful as well. They were dressed to kill and ready for girls night out!
|The Bachelorette Party (well, some of them...)|
I changed my clothes four times. I wore giant heels (which I quickly regretted and shrug for my flip flop wedges before the dance clubs).
The night was a blast. I wanted to take a zillion pics but I refrained and only snapped a few. I stood back quite a bit and just watched the girls have fun. I made new friends. I got home after 2:00 am (which NEVER happens). And contrary to what I originally thought, I didn't feel too old.

Big shout out to Christy Bell, the BEST Maid of Honor EVER. Between her and my sister in law they made Jess' night one she'll always remember.
