We didn’t steal any tigers, though


crystal and jess threw a bachelorette party for bertine the weekend before thanksgiving. i think i avoided uploading the photos for so long because, although it was a super fun night, that was some hangover the next day.

when i finally reviewed these photos, though, i couldn’t stop giggling. we had way too much fun!


jess was giving massages, starting with bertine, of course.

we were tested on how well we knew bertine.

you know that bridal shower game of making a wedding dress out of toilet paper? we made lingerie out of crate paper instead.

i may have helped empty that bottle.

temporary tattoos! note: if you should ever need to remove a visible temporary tattoo because you need to go to work or something, scotch tape does wonders.

claire taught us some naughty sign language.

bertine and i both got kitty tattoos. and now you know why i know that scotch tape is awesome.


bertine’s shirt glowed in the dark, so we both tried to hold really, really still in the bathroom to capture it. or maybe i was the one who needed to hold still.


i wish i could share the whole series of photos in this set with vani, because i think they’re hilarious. but i can’t. just know that there is context to this photo, and it is awesome.


isn’t it amazing when the camera captures exactly how you were feeling?
