Let me just go ahead and tell you this post is 100% not about running. I took four days off so I could enjoy one of the most amazing weekends I’ve ever had with all of my closest girlfriends in Savannah, GA for my bachelorette party.
The weekend started on Thursday afternoon. We were all coming from different places, so I rode with Sarah, Dara and Stephanie (maid of honor and two of my bridesmaids). Thank goodness Sarah bought us a selfie stick!
We arrived at our house around 7:00 and spent a good amount of time running around screaming because the house was SO BEAUTIFUL. Also we decided to test out the selfie stick in various areas throughout the house…
We took a cab down to River St. to grab some drinks and dinner before the rest of the girls got there. When everyone was finally at the house we made some drinks, stayed up late catching up on life, played games, and laughed way too hard.
On Saturday morning we headed over to B. Matthews for breakfast. They had the greatest bloody marys and mimosas! After breakfast we walked down to River Street again to see the sights and immediately got pulled into Wet Willies. They have tons of frozen slushie drinks to choose from. There was no way I could make a decision so I just told the bartender to make his favorite – orange dreamsicle. It was sooooo good and our drinks were so pretty!
We spent the rest of the day walking around Savannah, stumbling in and out of bars and shops to refill our drinks and escape the heat. We were all sweaty messes… the humidity and heat in Savannah is no joke!
We headed back to the house to chill out for a while and get ready for dinner at Treylor Park. We had to wait a while for our table but we didn’t care because we took over the beer garden and became best friends with the bartenders who really enjoyed giving us free drinks.
The food here was DELICIOUS. They have a really unique menu and the atmosphere is awesome. If you’re ever in Savannah you should definitely check it out!
After dinner we all went out on the town for a super fun night exploring downtown Savannah. Sarah made these tattoos for us in case any of us got lost…
All of the bars were so unique and the streets were crawling with people. We had a blast!
On Saturday we took a trip to Tybee Island for a beach day and then came back to the house to get ready for dinner at the Olde Pink House. This was probably my favorite place that we went. It is a very old, historic building and the food was delicious. When we were seated, the waiter let us know that Thomas had called and ordered two bottles of champagne for us. I thought that was so sweet!
After dinner we headed back to the house for a girls night in. The girls threw me a lingerie shower and then we stayed up late talking. It was such a perfect ending to a perfect weekend!!
As we get older it’s harder and harder to find time to get everyone you love together in one place. There were so many times this weekend where I just had to stop and look around and realize how lucky and blessed I am to have these girls in my life. Every single one of them took time out of their busy lives to come celebrate with me for a whole weekend and it just meant so, so, so much to me.
My maid of honor Sarah did an amazing job booking a great house, planning the weekend and putting all of the little details together that made me feel so special. I can’t wait to repay her when it’s her turn!! She made this little board that everyone signed with quotes and memories for the weekend. It’s definitely something I’ll cherish forever!
Did you have a bachelorette party or have you been to one recently? Where to?
