The Stripper Debate

Happy Friday! Thanks for all of the well wishes on the ankle.  It's coming along.  On Wednesday, I thought for sure I'd be able to go to Bar Method today.  But I did too much too fast and I think set myself back a day. The swelling has gone down, but it's still bruised up pretty badly.  So this week I've just been resting, icing, and lifting some free weights.  I've also been eating as healthy as possible, with the exception of Lou Malnatti's last night. Oh well! 

This morning I got back on track with a really great smoothie.  Probably the best one I've ever made to date.  A chocolate, peanut butter and banana smootie :-)  YUUUMMMMMM!     
Recipe for deliciousness:
1 heaping scoop of whey protein
1 cup of chocolate almond milk
1 medium banana
2 T peanut butter
1 T flaxseed
A few ice cubes
*Blend & enoy!

I'm thrilled that today is finally FRIDAY! I'd be even happier if it actually felt like spring here in Chicago.  LC has his bachelor party this weekend in Wisconsin Dells.  He and a bunch of his guys are renting a party cabin for the weekend.  Should be an absolute disaster :-)  He also informed me that there would be strippers at this cabin, which I already figured there would be.  I honestly could care less because I know him & I trust him and I'm very secure in our relationship.  And I know his friends; the strippers are more for their entertainment than his own.  I have friends who are getting married and they don't understand why their fiancés go to strip clubs or why they have to get strippers for the bachelor party.  I guess the same reason some girls carry around penis paraphenalia?  Because it's all part of the fun of your last "crazy" night out.  I know some of you are getting married soon, so what are your thoughts on strippers/strip clubs for the bachelor party? 

I, on the other hand, could not be spending my weekend anymore opposite of him.  Tomorrow, I will be attending a 1 year old's birthday party and on Sunday I will be going to a baby shower...


  1. ahhh. I don't know how I'd feel. I wasn't too thrilled when my boyfriend went to strip clubs, but I knew it was more of his friends' idea than his. It's good you trust him, but I wouldn't wanna think about the nasty strippers' crotches and boobs in my man's face! lol Are you having a bachelorette party?
    That smoothie looks delish!

  2. I wouldn't say that I'm thrilled about it, but it is what it is. I have friends that are getting really upset about their fiances bachelor parties and I just don't think it's worth the argument. I am having a bachelorette party! It's in June and I can't wait.

  3. I think I'd be more pissed if he lied to me about it (um, a friend of Z's did that....horrible, especially since everyone knew she didn't know and we all talked about how dumb she was at her freaking wedding reception. awful).
