What a weekend!

I am going to need about 5 cups of coffee to get me through this Monday morning. It was a eventful weekend to say the least. I had a bachelorette party for a friend of mine. 

It started of Friday night, girl talk, food,  + Cards Against Humanity. The girl hosting made her own photo booth props and a selfie stick. Such a fabulous idea and really makes me what to have photo props and selfie sticks at the wedding, see my DIY Photo Booth post.

When we got there they had a little gift bag for all of us.

Which had a matching shirt for everyone to wear and a mason jar mug. 

Saturday morning started with mani/pedis, spray tans + a large pasta lunch to prep for the night ahead. 

After lunch we spend a few hours trying on 10,000 different outfits. It was great. The bride to be had no idea where we were going which made it hard for her to pick out and outfit. She decided on a white dress (perfect for the bride!) with a pink sash and a "bride" crown. 

We left for Foxwoods later in the afternoon. We got ready and headed to Shrine, a night club in Foxwoods. Definitely not my scene, I have never been a club go-er. I am way to awkward for that! Lol! I am pretty much a 50 year old in a 27 year old's body. And my body just doesn't dance, I am like a telephone pole in the middle of a dance floor. But sometimes it's good to do things outside your comfort box (and act more like my age).

Sunday morning we needed to check out by 11:00am. Let me tell you, 11:00am came way to quick!! And the room was a mess... Picture 8 gals getting ready for a night out in one hotel room. There was stuff everywhere. E.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e 

When we got home, my mom and her boyfriend house sat / babysat our doggies for us because Jack was at the Bachelor party all weekend too. My mom was still in town so I got lunch with them. Then Spent most of the evening sleeping! 

How was your weekend? What did you do for your bachelorette party?

Linking up with Bella + The City Showered with Design for weekend recap!

  4. This sounds like so much fun!! I am NOT a club person either, I'm way too awkward! For my bachelorette, we went to a blow out bar and got our hair done which was so fun. Then we went to a nice dinner and a bar afterwards (no dancing!), and stayed overnight at the Philadelphia Ritz Carlton! It was perfect!

  5. That sounds like a perfect perfect bachelorette party!! I love the idea of going to a blow bar! :)
