"Why can't we remember a godd*mn thing from last night?" "Because we obviously had a great f***ing time."

This Saturday Kristian is leaving for his weeklong bachelor party down in the Outerbanks of NC. Yes you read that right I said WEEKLONG. Sigh. When he told me they were going down to the beach for a week I was all WTF… most guys get A night…maybe a WEEKEND if it involves going out of town. Then there are the poor suckers who aren’t even allowed to have any bachelor party. Never have I heard of a week long bachelor party. But because I pretty much rock as a fiancé I didn’t give him too much shit about it. I’m not worried at all about things like strippers or hookers…my first reaction when he told me he would be gone for a week was “but whose gonna make me dinner every night???” And no I’m not kidding.

Here’s the thing if he and his buddies were going to Vegas a la The Hangover THEN I might be concerned. I’ve heard stories of these boys from their younger years and honestly I’m amazed they survived their youth. Fortunately they are a bit older and hopefully wiser now and have outgrown a lot of their need for debauchery. When Kristian first started talking about his bachelor party he wanted to go Hog hunting out in West Virginia. See my future husbands idea of fun isn’t having nasty, STD plagued strippers shake their cash and prizes in his face…his idea of fun is killing innocent animals. Well it turned out that was going to be too expensive so his groomsman booked a 2 bedroom condo down in OBX for a week for pretty cheap…mainly b/c they are going in the middle of January when most sane people avoid the beach. I asked him if he wouldn’t prefer to wait until closer to the wedding AND when it was warmer but he said the fishing is good right now and this is when they wanted to go. Who am I to argue? So they will be spending a week drinking, fishing, smoking a cigar or ten and scratching themselves.

I must let you in on a little secret though, as much as I’ll miss him, part of me is pretty psyched about the prospect of having the bed ALL to myself sans snoring, watching bad reality tv without hearing him complain and not having to shave my legs. I can’t wait!

I just hope they remember one thing: "what happens in OBX stays in OBX. Except for herpes. That shit'll come back with you.”

That's only kind of funny because Rob is in Vegas for a long weekend. I'm so looking forward to his absence. The bed AND tv to myself. I'm having friends over almost every night (tougher to go out with the kiddo). Turnabout's fair play, right? You get your time.

Of course you're okay with it. Your future hubbers is more concerning with fishing for actual fish than fishing for ladies. You picked yourself a good one! At first i thought you were happy about not sharing your legs not shaving. Haha...i thought well alright!

I think my beau is doing a hunting/lake/fishing/beer drinking weekend trip with the guys. Sounds similar to your man!

So funny how having the bed to ourselves is one of the first things most of us think about when our other halves are OOT! :)

Mrs T said...

Bah haha. A week would be awesome. Are you getting a week of frivolity?

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

Sounds like a great man-cation! My hubby only had one night...I some how managed to get a girls weekend to Chicago and a bachelorette party in Columbus. Lucky me!

OMG! I totally agree with your last thought on having the place to yourself sans snoring and so on...so true! Funny funny. My guy is in fact going to Vegas for 3 nights...UGH! But thankfully he doesn't drink alcohol and he's already been warned about the strippers. He's more of a gambler anyway. :)

Holy crow! I'm not even thinking about my fiance's bachelor party... but this sounds funny! I wish his friends could do the same thing, but we still have a whole year to think about it. Good luck girl. You really rock as a fiancé! Don't know if I would react like that :P

Yay for not shaving legs!
:*

Llama said...

Awwww...ive def been in your spot before. While its not your #1 pick for your man to be there are definitely some perks about being home! While the boys are away the girls shall play!

Kristin said...

Yeah, I'd forgive most everything but the herps...ah ha ha. Kidding. Hope he has a fab time and as for you...how about a SATC marathon??

Alicia said...

If fishing is the worst thing you have to worry about, I think you're ok! Lol! Enjoy your week off! And enjoy the bed and the hairy legs!! :)

Jen said...

A week-long bachelor party?!? Yikes! I'd be upset just out of jealousy! But, it sounds like he'll be having good, wholesome, macho fun.

I too rejoice in a bed all to myself without snoring... until an hour goes by and I realize I'm cold and lonely. :-/

Kym said...

ahhh, the hangover. hahaha! that's a LITTLE extreme so i'm sure your fiancee + his buddies aren't going to go that far... but then again..... vegas makes you do crazy things. hahaha!

enjoy being manless for a few days! :)
