My Bachelorette was amazing and a TOTAL surprise!

I'm not one for surprises as I get anxiety over the unknown and tend to get REALLY excited when I know what is going on, but the girls managed to keep everything a secret till the very end!  I loved so much about the last 24 hours, I don't even know how to thank them from the bottom of my heart, or tell them how much it meaned to me!  What a great night with amazing friends and sisters!  Thanks ladies!  Tonight's blog is all about photos!

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!  You girls are incredible!

The night started off with me blindfolded and being walked to who knows where!  I don't have the photos of of the girls must have them!  It was hilarious!

We got to a hotel (the Westin, which was so nice) and popped some champagne and I got all dressed up by the girls in my bachelorette gear.  I loved chilling at the hotel before going out!

These girls know me so well!  I love to snack (I don't have a big appetite and eat small meals all day), and I LOVE LOVE LOVE candy.  I also loved the cupcakes at Kathryn and Gary's wedding so much, and was THRILLED Kathryn surprised me with them!

Jenn (my sister), Leslie and Jen.  Such a great sister and such great friends!  Without Jenn, I never would have met Leslie and Jen, and I am so greatful to have them all in my life.  I felt so honoured and excited for them to be there to celebrate with me!  Thanks ladies!  We always have so much fun "in the big city"!

Jolene, Dana and Kathryn.  Jolene and I go WAY back and have gotten into our fair share of trouble with each other, and our fair share of support with/for each other.  Dana and I have been best friends for what feels like FOREVER and I love that!  She and I went to high school together and no matter where I am in the world, I know she will always be there when I get back, having just as much fun as we always have!  Kathryn and I have so many memories over such a short time!  It is incredible how much we celebrate together, and have shared and I can't wait for many more years to come!

My sisters.  Stephanie, my sister-in-law, is one of the most passionate, loving, people and I love her so much.  She is so creative and so much fun!  I get jealous sometimes of how fun and creative she is and I wished we lived closer so that I can steal some of her ideas and talent :)  My sister, has been by my side through so many laughs and struggles.  I wouldn't want our past or present to be any other way (other than spending more time together, as I really miss her!), I can't wait for the fun we will have in the future!  Love you sisters!

We went to Dazzling for sushi!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE sushi and was so excited to see some of the girls try it for the first time! 

I had the most DELICIOUS rainbow roll I have EVER had!  It came at the end, once we had already had so much tempura, spring rolls, satay, dumplings etc, but it was SOOOOOO good!  Thanks girls for trying something new!

Jen and Jenny!  Jen had a carrot so long on her plate, it was CRAZY!  They did a little lady and the tramp eating to please me, and it made for some cute pics!  Love you girls!

We went to Second City, the comedy club.  It was HILARIOUS!  I love live comedy and after having a few drinks, it was even funnier!  Again, a first for some of the girls and they really seemed to enjoy themselves!

Dana, my maid of honour and I.  She and the girls planned the night so perfectly, and I enjoyed every second of it.  It was really hard to express how much I appreciated it and enjoyed it, but it really makes me feel emotional just writing about it and thinking about it.  Thanks ladies again, it was a night I will never forget!

Dana, hooked us up, and got us rides home in 2 Cop cars.  It was hilarious and made for a HUGELY memorable end to the night!  Even better to wind the guys up, letting them know we got picked up by the cops and not answering why, or what happened until today!  What a memory and what a great night for the girls!  The lights, the sirens, for a few of them, really made for a killer end of the night!

Thanks again ladies so much!  You'd think I was lucky enough to crash at the hotel with the girls that could stay (I didn't sleep much, but was SO excited), but even luckier when I woke up and we were finishing the weekend with brunch at the hot house.  I don't have pictures of it, but it was delicious.  I woke up feeling...a bit iffy this morning (no hangover, just tired and a bit gross...:), so I couldn't eat everything I would have loved to, but it was a weekend of so much fun, so many memories and some really fun GIRLY gifts.

I love you all ladies and can't wait to celebrate with you at the wedding!
