I love celebrating my friends, and this past weekend was such a wonderful way to do so. My college friend, Nikia, is getting married this weekend so we all headed up to North Conway last weekend to celebrate her last weekend as a “single” lady. It was a mix of college girlfriends and some of her other girlfriends from different parts of her life. We all got along so well and by the end, it felt like we had all been friends for so long!
We arrived at various times on Friday night and took that time to drink wine, hang out and relax. The house that we rented was amazing!!! It was perfect for us because there were so many bedrooms and bathrooms- a must for a group of girls! It slept 14, had 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, huge kitchen, 2 gas fireplaces, a game room and a hot tub with views of the nearby mountain. The Maid of Honor found the house on VRBO if you’re interested in checking it out!
On Saturday, we got up and I led a 45 minute bootcamp. I did this at Sheila’s bachelorette weekend and was pumped when Kia asked if I would do it for hers. I’m all about drinking and partying and straying off of my normal healthy eats for a weekend, but I really like when I can still get in a workout and some movement because it’s something that makes me feel so much better! So, when you have a group of girls willing to do it with you, it makes for a fun event. I’ll post the workout on Wednesday, but it was a good one and it was so funny to listen to everyone grunting and groaning!
Post workout, we had breakfast then headed out on a 1.3 mile snowshoe. I laughed because someone texted us saying to stop posting workout pictures and start posting drinking photos… I mean, it was a bachelorette party after all!
The rest of the afternoon was spent sipping on mimosas, hot tubbing and relaxing.
One of the best parts of the weekend was the fact that we had a personal chef come over to cook for us. The bridal party found Tyler through the restaurant he works at: Chef’s Bistro. It was such a great idea because going out to eat with a big group is not only challenging, but expensive! With a personal chef, we were able to hang out in our comfy clothes and chat and laugh and learn from him. I highly suggest looking into this if you’re doing a bachelorette party or some other party. Way better than going out to eat! We had bruschetta, parmesan coated cauliflower and pork tacos and everything was so good. He had us buy pairing wines, too.
After he left, we had Kia open her lingerie gifts and broke open some bubbly.
Around 9, we finally headed out! We went to a few places and ended up dancing the night away. What a fun, fun night and weekend celebrating Kia.
I think by the time I start feeling back to myself will be time to start it all over again up in Vermont for the wedding festivities! Hope you had a blast, Kia! I think it was a successful and all around perfect weekend celebrating you and this next chapter of your life. Love you!
