Honey Badgers Bachelorette

in All Posts

If fun is gauged by how empty my wallet is and how black the bottom of my feet are (stupid heels!), then we had a pretty awesome night.


The very best part of Nicole’s bachelorette was our matching Honey Badger shirts, which were a HIT at the bars.  Nicole’s was white and matched her veil.  The rest of the girls wore pink shirts.  I bought them in bulk from $6 Shirts.


Don’t know what the Honey Badger is?  Well, let me illuminate you!

He’s nasty.


I definitely danced around the bar like the cobra, yelling, “Get away from me, get away from me!”


Before our festivities out in Uptown Charlotte, Kelly put together a lovely pre-party with snacks and cocktails. 


Everything was delicious, but my favorite was this coffee cocktail.


1 shot Frangelico

1 shot soy creamer

Fill to the top with chilled coffee


As you can guess, a wild night ensued.  I love bachelorettes! 


The boys (meaning Nicole’s Isaac and the Husband) have been in Asheville all weekend celebrating Isaac’s bachelor party.  It was fun to do the parties on the same weekend, but I miss the Hus!  Glad he’s coming home today.


Woke up to an empty, quiet house and made some breakfast:


In the mix:


Greek yogurt

Raw teff (“What the eff is teff?!”)

Raw oats



And an orange on the side.


I need to pull my life together today.

  • Alex @ Raw Recovery September 18, 2011, 11:30 am

    OH MY GOSH that video was probably the best thing I’ve seen in a looong time. Honey Badger is my new favorite animal, but I’ll give you credit for it! Thanks for making my day start off right and glad you had a good time at the party!

  • Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats September 18, 2011, 11:30 am

    That honey badger video is too funny. I was so confused by all the honey badger tweets and such! lol. I was like WTF is this girl talking about?! 😛 Bachelorette parties are such a blast! 🙂 Hope you recover quickly!

  • Moni'sMeals September 18, 2011, 11:35 am

    So funny! what also cracks me up is this

    “I need to pull my life together today.” 🙂
    I understand, that is what Sundays are for, right?

  • Steph September 18, 2011, 11:36 am

    That video was effin hilarious!!! Thanks for posting it 🙂 Glad the bachelorette party was fun!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) September 18, 2011, 11:39 am

  • emily September 18, 2011, 11:55 am

    Those shirts are freaking genious. Would it be wrong to divorce and remarry so I could have a Honey Badger bachelorette party?

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb September 18, 2011, 12:08 pm

    what a FUN night! i have been seeing your tweets all morning, caitlin! too funny — have you gotten those 10 horizontal hours in bed? 🙂

    sounds like it was well worth it.

  • Khushboo September 18, 2011, 12:09 pm

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin September 18, 2011, 12:12 pm

    I actually just got back from doing a Terry Fox run and one of the teams was called “Honey Badgers”! 😀

  • Lara September 18, 2011, 12:14 pm

    Sounds like you had a blast 🙂 Go honey badgers! Also I’m intrigued by the raw teff idea…I love baking with teff but I’ve never thought of eating it uncooked.

  • Hillary September 18, 2011, 12:24 pm

    I’ve never seen that video, but now I’m very glad I have.

  • Mia September 18, 2011, 2:31 pm

    totally off topic question: I remember you once posted something about running tangents in a race so that your garmin mileage is as close as possible to the course mileage. Can you link me to that post? i just ran a half marathon today and my garmin said I run 13.6 miles…talk about extra work 🙁

  • Katie of Cabbage Ranch September 18, 2011, 2:53 pm

    Man, I wish honey badger had been around when my group was in the middle of bachelorette parties. Sooo hilarious! And those shirts: genius!
