Great weekend, crappy Monday

This is a crappy Monday because the cold I came down with on Friday has gotten worse over the weekend....not that I'm surprised. But it stinks because I just feel so crappy! I'm achy, my throat hurts a lot, I'm sneezing, coughing, and really stuffed up. Bleh.

This weekend I went to the Bay Area for my future cousin-in-law's bridal shower/bachelorette party. My mom and aunt threw an awesome bridal shower for Crystal! They held it at Chevy's, which is always tasty. They planned fun games, including a cake decorating contest (my team's cake won!), throw the bouquet, famous couples, and more. There were tons of prizes, laughter, and Crystal scored some great presents!

After the shower, my friend Libby and I had her friends go to Libby's apartment for movies, drinks and pizza before hitting the bars. It was fun to watch Crystal catch up with her friends, some of them she hadn't seen in a few years! Around 9:30, we all headed to downtown Mountain View to go bar hopping. The group of us were able to score several rounds of free drinks for the bride, and soon she was quite toasted!

My cousin had his bachelor party Saturday night while we were all at Crystals party. Sounds like he had an excellent time as well...his list of drinks was huge, and his friends spent a TON of money on his $4,000!!! I'm thinking I'm glad Adam wasn't able to go! We wouldn't have been able to afford it!

Here are a few pictures from the shower/bachelorette party for your enjoyment!

The blushing bride right before the bouquet toss game.
Jason got a few wrong answers during the "Newly Weds" game my mom planned. Good thing they have a few months to figure all that out!
Look at all those presents!
