By now you’ve probably figured out that I am a married lady. The domain name change may have been the first clue. That said, apologies for the radio silence the last few months.
Since I last blogged, I planned a wedding in four months and was still able to keep my sanity (I think). I thought I’d recap my bachelorette weekend from early August. Lake Lemon is one of my favorite places, so it only made sense to have my last hurrah at the lake.
Having six of my best friends together in one place meant the world to me. There’s nothing better than seeing your friends meet for the first time and instantly hit it off. The weekend consisted of boat rides, cannonballs at the swimming hole, late night dance parties, and some of my favorite meals. I laughed so hard, it hurt.
I don’t like to spend unnecessary money and I really didn’t want my friends to have to spend money either, so a lake weekend is perfect. The trip was free with the exception of a few food supplies. Our group kept a Google Sheet to keep track of who planned to bring what. We never had to worry about meals or leaving the lake house.
My now mother-in-law made a double batch of her famous cowboy caviar (aka Pam crack) and we snacked on that all day. Friday night was a make-your-own-taco-bar, Saturday brunch was brioche with mascarpone and an egg casserole, lunch was chicken salad and croissants, dinner was a pork roast with mozzarella tomato skewers, chips and guacamole, corn on the cob, and roasted potatoes. Sunday was blueberry bread and all of the leftovers. Also, a lot of Libby cookies were consumed.
My maid of honors brought the props (giant ring float, flamingo drink floaties, and Bride Tribe cups). The weekend was laidback, relaxed, and full of memories.
I can’t imagine going anywhere else and I’d highly recommend a lake bachelorette – there are plenty of Airbnb options too.
