I wanna dance with somebody. I wanna feel the heat with somebody. I wanna dance with somebody, with somebody who loves me. – Whitney Houston
Is it wrong that every time I picture my bachelorette party, my head is filled with poptastic ’80s tunes like “I Wanna Dance With Somebody?” For reals, I loved the video for that song when I was a kid. And now, forever, I associate giant hair, neon colors and paint-splattered walls with a good time. Is that so wrong? Ok, so maybe I am in the wrong era for an acid-washed bachelorette party, but a girl can dream, right?
In all seriousness, I am pumped about getting together with some of my favorite gal pals and painting the town red for a night (Hmm, maybe paint-splattered walls aren’t out of the question, after all!). One of the hardest parts of planning this wedding from a state I only recently moved to has been being away from my BFFs. I miss them like whoa, and I cannot wait to be reunited and spend a weekend letting loose and celebrating the end of one chapter and beginning of another with them.
In just a few short weeks, I get to put on my party shoes and have a weekend o’ fun in one of my favorite places in the world, Charleston, S.C. I hope we eat lots of delicious southern specialties, have a few drinks and have more than a few laughs. I am in desperate need of time with my girls!
