So the Weekend's Here

Well, it's Friday. Thank goodness! Though I'm thankful for my job, I must admit that I look forward to weekends! A lot.
However for the next several weekends I'm pretty much booked.
And it all starts tonight!
Tonight I have a lingere party. Now, this one is a little weird to me. I mean, I know it's a tradition before a wedding, but I really don't understand the desire for other people to buy you sexy lingere for your honeymoon. Maybe I'm just a really private person. But this one is even weirder because its for my friend Ari. Ari is like my little sister. Seriously, so thinking of her an lingere in the same thought is weird. Not to mention the fact that she is marrying my cousin Will, who is also a best friend, so it makes it even weirder. I think I'm gonna go with the joking Amish gown and just buy her a gift certificate. I have no desire to pick out a honeymoon wardrobe for her!
How about you guys? What are your thoughts on the sexy lingere parties? Maybe I'm just a prude or something, but I just don't understand!

I have to agree with you. I guess it depends on the company you are with but even still there are some things my friends and I just do not talk about.

A few years ago I was invited to a "slumber party". Learned more about the private lives of my cousins and their spouses than I ever wanted to know. I was so embarrassed!

I know how you feel. I have to attend a lingerie party tomorrow for my cousin's fiancee. It's totally weird. My lingerie shower was totally weird, too, especially since my mother and grandmother were there. I don't know who came up with the whole concept, but it's just weird! I know that it is a part of an upcoming marriage to be celebrated, and I'm thankful people thought to bless me in this way. I guess now that I've been married for a while, it feels less strange when I attend them, but I just have to separate myself a little. I'm always a fan of modesty and tastefulness in public!

Honestly, I think I would be a tad uncomfortable as well. I think something like that is extremely private. I compare it to buying something like that for my mom. GAK!!

I went to one that a friend through for a very shy girl... and she gave her a basket of "essentials" ... things like cucumbers, body paints, uuuhhhhhgggg ... I don't even want to think about it. I was embarassed FOR her... and our pastor's WIFE was there, too! She was mortified!

Yeah -- not so keen on those parties. Just take a nice gift card to Victoria's Secrets or something, and leave it at that.

Praise God I did NOT have one of these showers ... although my mom did give me one of those long white silky gowns with pearls and ribbons and sequins with a matching robe. It was tasteful, but eeeewww ... my mom????

I must agree!! I do not see the point in someone else buying me lingerie...kinda
