Bed and Breakfast Shenanigans

*I am rerunning this sister piece because I am sharing some of our whacky phone conversations In The Powder Room today. Meet me there and share your phone funnies.

A Sister's Trip!

We had soooo much fun....that we may not be asked to return...

The Carriage House

The Main House
The Rose Cottage

My sisters and I have a long history of entertaining (some Debbie Downers might say "embarrassing" or "mortifying") our mother.
She has come to accept our wild ruckus's, the dirty jokes, the loud rock and roll music and our very unladylike outbursts of opinions.
This "Sister Trip" was no different.
We came together from Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, and Nevada for a long weekend at The Inn at Woodhaven Bed and Breakfast. (Louisville, Kentucky)
Taking my role as the "bossy sister" very seriously, I planned the trip. Our trips have usually included a beach or mountains or sometimes, both.
As we were barreling down the interstate, picking up sisters along the way, panic set in. I began to fear that I had made a huge mistake. 
Who goes to bed and breakfasts, anyway? 
What if we get stuck eating family style with Uncle Buck or Deliverance Danny? 
What if this lovely house is on crack street and doubles as a brothel?
I began to practice my excuses and tried to find ways to turn the blame on my unsuspecting sisters.
"Don't be so judgie - crack dealers are people, too."
"When you live in Nevada, you can't really complain about prostitutes in Kentucky!"
A wave of relief washed over me when we arrived to a lovely, historic and beautiful bed and breakfast in an equally lovely neighborhood.
Our fun moved from porch to porch, downstairs to upstairs, cottage to carriage house and back to the main house. We set eating records and laughed ourselves silly.
We had yet, another wild sister ruckus. Our mother sat shaking her head at our shenanigans and laughing all the way.

  5. I enjoy hearing about your adventures. I am sure there was just non-stop laughter on your trip! My sister and I took a Miami trip once for a wedding and it was pure silliness! Who else but a sister can "get" all the stupid jokes?!!

  16. I've never stayed at a bed and breakfast. I've always been scared to. You know I have bowel issues and I don't want to be judged!

    It looks like you had a blast, and although you didn't run into any issues, for all you know, that place could have been a crack house. Just sayin...
