Estrogen-Fest

Guys, you've been warned. I'm gonna get straight-up girlified on yo' asses today.

On Saturday my friend Laurie and I did a surprise day of beauty for our friend Jill, who just turned 40. Her husband was having a party for her, so we wanted her to look extra sessy for her big night.

We started off with some delicious Italian food and a Spider-tini. Um, ew, what? Yeah - Jill's first glass came with a noticeable chip out of the rim, so back it went just in case the glass was, you know, IN her drink. The fresh drink came out, and just as she was about to take a sip she noticed a teeeeeeeny tiny dead spider nestled in the frothy goodness of her beverage. YUCK! Back it went, and Laurie and I nodded knowingly to each other, thinking, "Hey, free round!"

Except not. Hrumph!

After lunch, we swung by the store to pick up some vino to enjoy at the salon while Jill got gussied up.

AFTER:



Then it was back to Laurie's extensive closet to get Jill pushed up, sucked in, and outfitted. I even helped myself to an outfit while I was there, and Laurie did my make-up.

Laurie confessed that she thinks I'm "conservative" with my cleavage showing (Hahahahahaha, right?!) and with my make-up. Huh. So I put myself in her hands, and this was the result. Oh, and it was - no lie - 100 humid degrees in her bathroom so I was literally a HOT MESS by the time we got in the car.

We went to Jill's party, and it was fun. Jill was having a good time for sure, and she rocked her new look! We had some tequila drinks and I managed to keep from getting too silly (read: keep my Laurie's clothes on), and we had a good time reconnecting with some friends we hadn't seen in a while. Sadly, no one got naked, and to my knowledge, nothing got broken. BOO.

I will be eating nothing but lettuce and water for the next few days to make up for all the wine, pasta, jalapeno Doritos, and miscellaneous crap that I consumed all weekend. Lettuce, water, and maybe sugar-free gum for dessert. Yeah, that's the ticket.

It's like a colony of MILFs up there in the northeast!

Harmony said...

I can't believe nothing was broken..oh well maybe next time. I agree with Kate everyone looks Hawt!

Organic Meatbag said...

Hot tamales!!!

Mary said...

good times...good times...
I like the '100 humid degrees' comment. I think that might have been MY bathroom!

MtnMama said...

Aw, c'mon, you can have celery and lemon juice, too! ;)

You are such a cutie pie, and red looks nice on you; not everyone can say that.

Such fun - but a hot humid bathroom? Ugh! I wouldn't have come out looking anything as good as You All did! Must take some experience to adapt...

Bev said...

Kate - HA!!!!!! Boobs, er... BIRDS of a feather, and all that.

Harmony - Thank you! Nothing broke, except a few hearts. ZING!

OM - thank you, and thanks for being the only dude (so far) who has both read AND commented on the Estro-fest!

Mary - It was a sauna in there! There are two other pictures of me perched on her toilet (with the lid down, naturally) and I look like a sweaty hooker. For real.

MtnMama - mmmm, celery! I'd forgotten about that taste-sensation! Thank you, too! I do like wearing red. The only colors I can never wear are orange or yellow. My skin tone objects heartily to those colors in any form!

Sounds like a fantastic weekend!! I am so in need of a girlie day out at a salon and then raiding a friend's closet. I will just have to live vicariously, once again, through you. :)

aw bev, that sounds like SO MUCH FUN! and i'm SO JEALOUS. with all the *ahem* togetherness i have had lately *ahem* with my family, i could use a good ole fashioned girl's day o' debaucherous delight.

you ladies are beautiful!

Stacie's Madness said...

HOLY CLEAVEGE.
um, can't even think what I was going to say now.

um, yeah.

onebadmamajama said...

You guys look MAHVELOUS! I'm sure there are broken hearts all up and down the east coast!

Umm, as for the spidertini, next time scream and act all crazy over the spider. They'll give you free drinks just to shut you up LOL

Word verificaion: beadnee

Bev, Laurie, Jill and 'em were the beadnee(s) on Saturday!

Samsmama said...

There's only one comment from a male? You certainly made up for the estrogen with all the shots of hooters! Frank is missing out!

There is nothing, I repeat, NOTHING worse than trying to ready yourself in a hot bathroom. I've had more than my fair share of sweaty hooker moments. In that respect, anyway.

PorkStar said...

Cleavage? Hot mess? Bev? sweaty? (does muffin sweat sound familiar?) oh my...i totally love it.

the girl's cute.. but i'd still vote for Bev's cleavage.

: )

Laura said...

Hi Bev, thanks for visiting my blog. Now I have about 6 followers...hehe.

You ladies looked HOT! I'm gagging for a good old girls night out **sigh** I hate having a summer birthday, everyone is away so I had nobody to play with :oD

Bev said...

NE Girl - Girly time is a must for me. I live with 3 boys...!

AnonMom - I swear to dog I am gonna come kidnap you and have some girly time... I mean it!

Come to think of it, you're all on my kidnap list!

Stacie - heh! Sorry to distract you... happens to us all the time.

OBMJ - ha! Best word verif, for sure! And yes, I think we laughed too much over the spidertini. Next time we'll scream and act put-out, I guess!

Samsmama - I know! I think they came and ogled but didn't contribute to the conversation b/c they had pressing... issues to attend to. Just my guess.

Oh, and one of these days I'll show you my sweaty hooker on the john picture, b/c you're special.

PorkStar - so pervy, yet so sweet! Thank you. :)

Laura - You're welcome. Please stop by anytime! Oh, and I have a summer b-day but I love it! Go figure.

laurieliz said...

OMG, BEV! I thought you looked so hot (not hot mess) that night! Didn't we get a bunch of awesome pics of you? It was so much fun and just had a blast (as I always do) with you girls!

Highlights:

Jill's drink mishaps.
Getting free wine from the grosh. (WHAT???!!!!!????)
Jill's ACTUAL new highlights and seriously looking FORTY AND EFFING FABULOUS!
playing dress up
yummy margaritas
and last but not least JILL FALLING DOWN! Yes, I do laugh when people fall but only if they are not seriously hurt. And, Damn! that girl popped up faster than anything threw her arms up and gave a serious WHOOP!
Ha! Don't worry, Jilly, it happens to all of us!

I am so excited about our next GNO! Bahston, here we come!!!!

Jillinator said...

whew... I think I've finally recovered from my hangover... now it's just the wondering if I did anything exceedingly embarassing during those blank spots from the excessive drinking that I need to recover from. D'OH! Thank you again - tons of compliments on my new do! Oh, and Laurie - I'm the first to laugh at my own falling so it's all good!

That's one way to interpret it, sure.
