Kate’s Bachelorette Party in Dallas Part 3

Hi guys!! Happy Wednesday!  I hope your week is moving along nicely.  I am still trying to get back into work mode after a month of constant vacations/parties.  I am looking forward to not having much on the agenda this weekend.  

Today I am wrapping up one of my favorite weekends ever!  My cousin had her bachelorette party at my house a couple weekends ago and we had the best time.  On Saturday morning we had plans for brunch at a local favorite called Saint Ann’s.  The drinks and food were amazing and the company was even better!

After brunch we headed home to change for a boat day on the lake!  We spent a few hours making new friends and tubing in the sunshine.  It was so much fun! 

Around dinnertime, we headed home for some more fun on the roof and a casual dinner at home.

We had plans to go out on Saturday, but we were all pretty tired so we decided to call it a night and get some sleep.  We woke up on Sunday feeling well-rested and refreshed and ready for a day of relaxation.  We had one last surprise for the bride-to-be.  We organized for a mobile spa to come to my house and give mini facials to each girl.  We were all in heaven!

Our last game of the weekend was cake decorating.  My mom made these little cakes for us and bought tons of decorations for us to use.  We split up into three groups of two to play the game.  The bride was the judge!  My team won (left picture below)!!! I can only show you two of the cakes because the 3rd place team made theirs too inappropriate for the blog. 😉

The rest of Sunday was spent cleaning and getting the girls all packed up to go home.  The bride’s mom sent so many gifts throughout the weekend for all of the girls, which made for so many fun surprises.  Girlie weekends are the best especially when celebrating your last single days!  Kate, we all love you and hope you had the best weekend ever! 

I am off to keep catching up on life before a long massage this afternoon!!!  I will see you all tomorrow!  Have a great day!

Questions:

  1. Do you prefer brunch or dinner?
  2. What is one chore your put off for as long as you can?
  3. How often do you get to hang out with your close friends? 

Kate’s Bachelorette Party in Dallas Part 2

Happy Tuesday, yall!  I thought I would have had time to check in from Georgia over the weekend, but once again, life got in the way.  I am trying to spend less time in front of the screen and more time enjoying life, but I always love when I get to chat with you guys too.  Today I want to continue recapping my cousin’s bachelorette party in Dallas before I get to my most recent trip to Georgia with great friends!

So let’s see…Friday morning was an early one with a surprise visit to Kendra Scott (jewelry store) for the bride to pick out some new jewelry.  Kendra Scott is known for their inexpensive jewelry and color parties.  All the girls who wanted to got to pick out a setting (ring, bracelet, necklace, etc.) and choose their stone to complete their piece.  I ended up getting a new ring and I love it, but forgot to take a picture!

After some jewelry shopping, my sister and I headed to her apartment nearby to set up for brunch and a pool party. We got all the girls monogrammed hats and some sunglasses for the party.  My sister found these adorable flamingo floats and drink holders so our theme was flamingos!

We had an absolute blast eating, sipping mimosas, floating around, dancing, and laughing all day long.  We also had a lingerie party and a panty poem where the bride got new panties for all of her upcoming milestones.  It was so fun!

We had the pool to ourselves for almost the entire day which was amazing, but luckily we caught someone passing through to snap a picture of us and our hats!!

After the pool party, we all surprised the bride with an appointment at Dry Bar to get her hair blown out for the night.  The rest of us headed home to get ready for the evening festivities.

Our plans started off with dinner at HG Supply Co where we quickly snapped a picture on the roof that overlooks downtown!

Such a fun group of girls!

Always have to have a silly pic or two!

I got the usual for dinner.  And it was just as good as it always is!

After dinner we headed back to my house for a bit for what turned into an impromptu girls dancing session and some more pictures!

We went to the bars for a couple hours for some dancing before calling it a night! I will wrap up this post here as it could get rather lengthy if I finish up my recap in one post!  I will be back tomorrow to wrap up the rest of this amazing weekend in Dallas! Have a great day!!

Questions:

  1. How was your weekend?
  2. Are you guys ready for fall yet?
  3. Any trips coming up for you? 

 

 

 

 

Kate’s Bachelorette Party in Dallas Part 1

Hi guys!! Long time no talk!!  I am so sorry for my absence from the blog at the end of last week and beginning of this week.  My cousin, Kate, and her friends came into town last Thursday morning then it was go go go until they left Sunday.  I have been busy playing catch up these past couple days because I am leaving for the lakehouse in Georgia today.  My life is a little hectic and crazy right now, but I wouldn’t change anything about it.

I have got to fill you in on all the details of my cousin’s bachelorette party in Dallas this past weekend.  My sister, the maid of honor (my cousin’s friend) and I spent months organizing and planning this big event and it was even better than expected.  The boys/dogs got kicked out for the weekend and all the girls moved into my house.  It was so fun!!!  I have a lot to show you so this might take a couple days. 😉 

My sister and I spent so much time ordering and making decorations, signs, party favors, etc., but last week the real prep-work began!  My sister had the brilliant idea to make watermelon jello slices for the pool party we were having at her apartment on Friday.  It wasn’t too hard, but with all the extra gelatin to help the jello stick to the watermelon rind, they were a little rubbery.    

We planned to eat most meals at my house so we could save money all weekend.  Costco was a huge time saver with ready-to-eat sandwiches, quinoa salads, dips, etc., but I did prepare a couple salads too.  It was so nice to have so many meals ready to go when we were ready to eat.

My sister order these letter balloons to hang in the living room!  We got these bags (Etsy, I think) for all the girlies!

Thursday morning, my sister and I went to pick up the girls from the airport.  They all flew from New York.  Our first stop was at Boot Barn so the bride and I could get some cowboy boots.  I can’t believe I haven’t had any for all these years!  I will show you my new pair later in this post.

After we went home and got the girls settled, we had a couple drinks, some lunch, and played a few games before heading over to Truck Yard for a drink and a fun atmosphere.

We continued our games at our table that used to be a car.  Yes, we were all sweating like pigs because Dallas is HOTTTT right now, but we didn’t care too much.

After awhile we headed back home, but not without a picture with the bride as the “I.” #dallasstrong

How cute is this Instagram sign my sister made for the bride?? Isn’t she talented??

The bride requested a photo booth so the maid of honor ordered this cute backdrop and tons of props, which made for so many fun pictures all weekend.

Thursday night was our “cowboy/country” theme night.  The maid of honor got us all tanks that said “bride squad” so we decided to pair those with our jeans/shorts and boots.

How cute is my cousin?

We had margaritas and taco night at my house before another surprise!  Our limo arrived at 8pm to take us our to Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth for some line dancing!  We had a blast singing and dancing all the way there (and back).

A few of our boots!!  Mine are the second from the right with all the funky designs.  I LOVE them and want to wear them everywhere.

We didn’t get to ride the bull 😉 but we had a blast completing a bunch of “country/cowboy” themed dares throughout the night before it was time to head home and get some rest for more fun on Friday!  

I will be back tomorrow for Day 2 of the bachelorette party!!  Have a wonderful day and I will see you tomorrow from Georgia!

  1. Do you know how to line dance?
  2. What did you do this past weekend?
