Party Puzzle and Extra Links

Well, I am pleased to say that the bachelor party went very well!  Everyone seemed to have a darn good time, including the man of the evening. Figuring out how to throw a bachelor party threw the three of us "groom's chicks" for a bit of a loop at first, but I think we had a great event. There were even a few crafty things that happened for the party.  The major one was the custom game that Carrie made for Skennedy, which was so awesome!  I helped by creating a series of buttons that the guests wore, shown above.  It was a puzzle with the images adding up to form the clue LOOK (eyes) UNDER (underpants!) BED (different beds) PRIZE (presents).  We hid the game under the bed at the hotel where we had the party, and Skennedy figured out the clue!  We played the game later and it was tons of fun!

I spent the morning at the hotel, helping to clean up, driving home and hanging out with my buddies a little, napping, and hanging out with my family for Mother's Day.  There is a lot to do this week so I hope I have recovered from this party weekend.  Maybe a good night sleep tonight will get me motivated for Monday.  And better late than never... here are this week's Extra links:
