Two Meatballs: Primpin’ Ain’t Easy!!!

Jenny and I talk a lottttt about The Bobies as you read yesterday on her post…so for those of you who don’t know what they are all about, here is a little run down.  Being stylists, December is an extremely busy month for us, so Samuel Cole Salon has always had its holiday party in late January.  But 7 glorious years ago Joelle decided we should do superlatives.  So I wrote up a ballot,

had everyone in the salon vote each other a Most Likely To situation (but more like a good ribbing not like best smile!) and we wrote skits about each person and then I thought what if we gave out an actual award (cover a gatorade bottle in tin foil and glue a pic of their head on a spoon Kids in the Hall style) and thus the Bobies were born!  Here are a few of my own personal ones…

Over the years I’ve gotten Most Likely to Make out with you, your best friend and your boyfriend all in one night (#imalover), Best Mentor/Worst Influence Ever and (stop reading now mom and dad) Most Likely to Show you a dick pic whether you want to see it or not!  Haha…all true!  Over the years things have changed and evolved and our company has grown so much.  Each year, Joelle and I spend probably 40 hours compiling, writing, getting our comedic genius on and practicing our skits! And this year has been no different!

And honestly this is all of my dreams coming true.  One night a year I get to live out all my Saturday Night Live fantasies of singing and making people laugh.  It has turned into a full on roast!  So let’s take a little stroll down memory lane…our first Bobies was at the restaurant formerly known as South in North Hills…everyone got dressed up to the nines…spray tans, makeup done, evening attire and fake hair galore!

This is our first performance!

Year two we had at Bone Fish…much to every other diners dismay…I got hammered before we started this year so it was a struggle!!!

This was also Jenny’s first Bobies and she joined the decorating commitee and also sang opera for everyone!  The next year we upgraded to a hotel…bc it was the only place that would fit us anymore.  Joelle and I also instituted a one glass of wine pre Bobies policy…the show went much smoother this year.  Welcome to the Marriot Downtown…

Then we switched to the Renaissance at North Hills for the following year and Howard McLaren came…we all died! #whoseshe?!

Then we gave The Sheraton Downtown a go and we’ve been loyal ever since! This is three years ago…

Two years ago…

And last year…

Joelle and I decided it would be hilarious to rock the same dress…and spoiler alert…it was! My dress didn’t fit anymore but I tried on her dress that was 5 sizes smaller than mine and it almost fit!!  #progress #majorADD

But it’s more than just getting dressed up and getting a Bobie…there are lots of awards of recognition for performance and commitment…they are called The Biggies…

Then there is dinner and dancing…

And some serious love…

I don’t know if you’re picking up what I’m putting down but basically it’s the living greatest night of the year!  We literally countdown every year…

wpid-img_7391430054995.jpeg

People get hotel rooms and the party lasts all night long.  It’s so great o be together outside of work and hang out with everyones significant others who have become family.  Being part of this incredible company is a gift that I am thankful for everyday, but nothing brings that out more than The Bobies.  The whole night is a high.  My sister has been my amazing date for 6 of 7 years (My bestie Katie came year one!) if you couldn’t tell from the pics above and we have the best time! #sistersleepover

This year will be a totally different experience bc I won’t be drinking or epically hungover the next day.  I know there was some trepidation from my coworkers…part of the bonding is drinking together.  But I have come to learn that I am actually wayyyy more fun sober and this night will be no different!!!!  I’ll also be only 16 days away from a year of sobriety from the night of the Bobies…ahhhhhh!!!!  I have my spray tan booked, extensions in, dress in my closet, spanx purchased, nails with Lee, makeup booked with Krystal, hair booked with Jenny, and practice booked all week with Joelle.

This year has flown by and as crazy as it sounds, this Saturday is the big show!!!!  I literally can’t wait!!!!  Now, I’m off to bed to rest up for this crazy busy week…fingers crossed that I can maintain my weight this month…right now I’m up 4…eeeek!!!  Xoxoxoxoxoxoxxo
