Color Me Yours

Alright, I *hope* I've got this down. Utilizing Smugmug is great in the sense that my pictures are clear and I can make 'em huge, but whatta pain if the settings aren't right.

For our friend's bachelorette party, my friend & I took a route less-traveled and instead of strippers, whipped cream, being "woo-girls," and losing our panties to a douche with a curly mop for hair wearing ripped jeans and flip flops, we decided to spend quality time at the beach with mimosas, homemade brunch, Color Me Mine, and Gyu Kaku.

Huntington Beach:

we kept it classy with plastic penis straws while drinking our mimosas

We then went to Color Me Mine where we each painted 1/3 of a plate so we had matching commemorative plates. Be forewarned - if you plan on going CMM, it can definitely suck the time out of you...we spent over FOUR hours there.

Gyu Kaku is a Japanese restaurant with grills in the middle of each table where you bbq your own meat, similar to Korean bbq. DELISH. Not to mention $1 beers.
And of course, it wouldn't be a bachelorette party without...
Inappropriate cupcakes are the best. Strawberry cheesecake cupcakes, by yours truly.

(Hopefully I didn't just get you fired)


  1. very creative :)
    LOVE the plates!!! you girls are very artistic.

  2. BAHAHHAHA oh my. that cupcake... hmmm ill have to snag me one of those for my friends bachelorette. hehe! and that plate idea is good too!!! and of course the food... a party aint a party with good food... *yummm* happy monday steph!

  3. LOL I love bachelorette parties! So fun.
    And....I love CMM. I'm so sad they closed here.

  4. fun!

    I'm going to a bachelorette party this weekend in SD!

  5. lol, i tend to bite on straws. ouch!

    Mmm, I love Gyu-Kaku!! I went there for my b-day before. You can rub the lemon on the pan instead of using oil on the pan, if you'd like.

    I'm glad that I didn't scroll all the way to the bottom when I was at work, eep!

    Congrats Shannon!

  6. Mmm that bbq looks delish! The cupcakes... I dunno hahah. Your plates turned out so well! I tried that once with mugs and the only thing that happened is that I learned I am an atrocity to art.

  7. That looks like a fun bachelorette party! I've been totally feeling the mimosas lately too, I had one when I got off work today, LOL. Plus your BBQ lunch looks DELICIOUS!

  8. Mmm, I'd like a cupcake please ... for the strawberry, not the lovely decoration on top :P And I've never seen a Color Me Mine (maybe it's American), it looks like an amazing place. I've never been to a bachelorette, but it looks like a hoot! Glad you had a fun time :D

  9. These photos are awesome. I love the 1/3 of a plate painting idea. So cute! I want to try it for my next b day with some friends!! The penis straws on the beach is totally classic.

  10. Looks like the bachelorette party was a blast! =)

  11. oh cute! i like that you each painted a part of the plate. the bbq looks yummy! and so do the cupcakes even with the inappropriate cupcake toppers ;)

  12. looks like a fun time. great idea for the plates. love your hair and makeup posts btw. :)

  13. ahh that looks delicious! i think that's a much better idea of a bachelorette party. looks like you guys had a lot of fun.
