Last night was the night I have been planning for over three months. It was my best friend and roommate's Surprise Lingerie Shower! Sarah was completely surprised and had no idea this was going on, which was perfect! She did notice her co-workers acting kind of strange during this past week and I was acting really weird yesterday during the day, but somehow I was able to lure her to a hotel about 15 minutes away and still she was completely surprised when two co-workers and two friends from home were waiting for her!

We had the party in a meeting room at a Comfort Suites that my co-worker's step-dad owns, so after some last-minute favor shopping, I headed over to the hotel to set up and decorate!

I also decorated plastic martini glasses for everyone!

As we sipped on Lemon Drop martinis, we played the first game! Everyone brought a pair of undies for Sarah and she had to guess who brought which pair. Some people, such as myself, brought gag undies (mine was a leopard-print thong that I found at Wal-Mart for $1.98!) and some brought cute undies!

I also made a Sarah Jeopardy game, which everyone loved! It was so much fun and I think we all learned a lot about Sarah! (and YES, those are zebra striped streamers!)

I got off work the night before the shower at 8:30pm and right when I got home I began baking lingerie-shaped sugar cookies using dough I had put in the refrigerator 9 hours earlier!

I found this great recipe for rolled sugar cookies on The only modification I made was using powdered sugar to roll out the dough instead of flour--it worked just like flour but added a little more flavor!

 After I baked them and let them cool, it was time to decorate! I think they turned out pretty well.

 To make the "butt cookies," you can use a heart-shaped cookie cutter and then just cut off the point. You can use that same shape for a boob/bra cookie if you'd like and you can even keep the point of the heart as the chest/neck part. There are lots of images online of "lingerie sugar cookies," which is where I got the inspiration for my cookies.

The night was a complete success and everyone had a lot of fun! I'm so glad Sarah was surprised and enjoyed herself! :) I am so honored to be the MOH for the best bride!
