Last weekend I had my second chick party, this time with my MOH of Anna. I don't like calling her my Maid Of Honor though cos she's awesome & I don't think the title does her justice! Nick gets to be Adam's Best Man so why can't Anna be my Best Maid?!
We had a potter round Nottingham getting a few odds & sods before heading back to her flat. When we got to her front door I had to wait outside while she rustled around for a bit, she finally opened the door & I was greeted by loads of balloons & a party popper pretty much in my face (maybe she's trying to sabotage the wedding by giving me a big bruise on my face?! Hadn't though of that, hmm!). We had a lovely girly evening full of Chinese, excitement as Mo Farah won the 5000m & Tom Daley got a Bronze in the diving, Take Me Out reruns, popcorn, makeup trials & generally loads of giggles.
Amazingly it was free to go in so we had a wander around & it was full of stuffed animals. It was really weird in a fab way! They had everything from a full size Giraffe to an Octopus & loads of different birds. Seeing as I'd only packed light I didn't have Lumix with me but my little point & click did a pretty good job in the dimly lit, kinda creepy, rooms.
By the time I got home I was oblivious to the strange looks I kept getting from my balloon tied to my backpack. I only remembered it was there when I saw my shadow in the road with a big heart floating above me. It reminded me that I'm properly loved from all angles from my husband-to-be, to my brill parents & some rather fab friends :) getting soppy now so I'll stop!
