Ali's bridesmaids made sure she was dressed for the evening. I won't even show you what was on the back of her veil.
We started with drinks, appetizers, and of course, some gifts! This gift was so cute!
And there is my gift to Ali! I like to make stuff (can you tell?).
It is a tank top in the wedding colors that says "mrs. mo" on the back of it. I made something similar for my bridesmaids (with their name) and me for my wedding. Mine said "mrs. r to be" on the back. But I thought Mo would get a kick out of a "mrs. mo" shirt! Plus, "Mo" is short for Ali's soon to be married name.
After gifts we went out for dinner and drinks downtown. This was my drink....a martini with a ton of raspberries dumped on top! It was really good. Raspberries are my favorite fruit...I could eat them all day every day. Yum.
Our friend Karri started of the night right by buying Ali a shot.
After dinner we went to a bar of course. This is a horrible picture of me, but I am not really a drinker, so Karri thought this was hilarious and had to snap a photo. Over the course of 8 hours I had about 4 drinks....and that was plenty for me!
We had a nice little corner spot at the bar....complete with couches. Ali always got attacked whenever she wanted to rest her feet! We had a great time celebrating Ali and the big step she is about to take! And don't worry Mo, your girl was good all night!
