Two Bachelorette Party Weekend!

On Friday after lunch, I headed to Lindsay's bachelorette party in Blowing Rock, NC.  It was held at her maid of honor's sister's mountain house.  Got all that?
 
The Bride (Lindsay) is in the middle, my friend Sara (who is 6 months pregnant on the right) and me who was dressed for summer not the mountains on the left.  We are very old friends....since we were 4 or 5 years old friends!
 
We sipped on wine on the back deck until everyone arrived.
 
Diana the MOH made the most amazing dinner, starting with these artichoke bites.
 
Salad with proscuitto, watermelon, goat cheese, fresh arugula and a fancy dressing.  So good.
 
 
Lindsay's little sister Ashley in green and Sara.
 
The second course was a fancy pasta from Manhattan that Diana had hunted down.  The last course was tilapia and swiss chard.
 
Then Lindsay opened gifts, ahem, and we played a couple fun games.  Those pictures are top secret.
 
Saturday morning at a very early hour and after two hours of sleep, I got on the road in my bathing suit and coverup to head to Charleston, SC for my friend Lauren's bachelorette party!
 
Lauren's sisters did such a great job throwing her weekend!  These flamingos were outback of her parent's Isle of Palms house with little veils on!
 
After lounging on the back deck for awhile, it was cocktail hour and we all got ready.  Felt like we were back in the sorority house!  Everyone was doing each other's hair and makeup.  So fun!
 
The bride! 
 
Everyone watched her open her gifts which we won't show any of those pictures!
 
 
Lauren and her two sisters!
 
Lauren and her college friends!
 
Lauren and her Charlotte girls!
 
Lauren and her two future sister in laws!
 
Then we all jumped in cabs and headed into Charleston for a fancy dinner at Coast.  SO good!
 
All of the girls after dinner!
 
This is me, Tara and Lauren during dinner. 
 
Then we went to a close bar and they gave us all a shot.  I didn't take mine - uck!
 
Hi Bride! 
 
Then for some odd reason, Tara and I decided it'd be a mighty great idea to stay out and not get back to the beach house until 3:30am.  Smart decision....not!  Haha, but it was fun!
 
Yesterday getting back to Charlotte was rough.  I had the windows open (despite the rain) and loud rowdy music on to avoid falling asleep.  Kevin and I went to Hawthorne's pizza for a much needed catch-up-on-life dinner and I hit the bed around 9pm! 
 
Can't wait for their weddings on June 1 and June 8!!!!

Love you and Tara staying out until the wee hours of the morning! I am sure that drive home was so much fun. Ugh...

You are in trouble for not telling me you were in Charleston, missy. I forgive you though since you were obviously very busy. :) Looks like y'all had a blast!

Busy weekend! I bet you were in detox Sunday and yesterday!! ;0
That would have been me wanting to stay out until 330am! Good times!! Love the veils on the flamingos and I need that mountain house!
