hello [girly] weekend.

hello weekend! it's officially here [for me] -- I'm off to partake in bachelorette madness... I cannot lie, I am quite excited for some quality girl time. I feel like every gal needs a dose of it and I haven't had my fair share lately. It's definitely difficult being far(ish) away from a lot of close friends but I feel like that's a part of growing up... and I can't complain because I do have an amazing husband who I get to spend the majority of my time with and he puts up with me like the best of them.

I do miss the days of sharing forty closets in the ZTA house though [it's no fun borrowing DJ's clothes] and there always being someone who was up for what you were... whether that was a crazy night out, a low-key night just laying on the couch watching Ellen stand-up [she didn't have a TV show when I was in college].  I also miss the days of grad school and UNCW and having friends close by who could [and would] come over to help me pack for whatever trip I was going on [fashion show, anyone?!]. I remember the day that I tried on EVERY SINGLE item of clothing I owned for one of my friends in effort to clean out my closet. [Do you think DJ would go for that next week? haha, riiight].

I've been lucky enough this week to be able to have great meaningful conversations with a lot of my close girlfriends - it makes me so appreciative of the decisions I've made throughout life and the people I've chosen to surround myself with and the friendships I've put effort into maintaining.  I truly am a lucky girl.

With that being said, I'm so excited to spend this weekend with Tiffani and her favorite girls to surround her with the girly goodness that she deserves.  There's something magical about bachelorette parties - not the drinking and the partying but the quality time that you get to spend with your favorite people [other than your future husband of course]. As the bachelorette, you're surrounded by your closest girlfriends from all aspects of your life, some don't know each other [some may not even like each other] but they all gather and celebrate you - I'm excited for Tiffani to experience that this weekend.

Don't worry, the Rev won't get too wild this weekend - who knows, maybe I'll meet some folks that want to elope and I'll get to practice my officiating.

And because a post isn't complete without pictures, here are some from my amazing weekend with my favorite women [aka my friends are the best because they threw a bachelorette party for me after I eloped and my husband is just as great because he was okay with sending his married wife off to a bachelorette party in her honor]...
great memories with great friends.
can't wait to create even more this weekend!

My sister eloped and we didn't throw her a bachelorette party :( Do you think 4 1/2 years later is too late?

I can't wait for my bff to get married and throw her party.

Oh and I love the color coordinating-- simple but very cute.

I miss college roommate life sometimes too. And then I remember that I had to go to therapy to deal with them after awhile and now I like my distance ;)

But I do still invite them over and give them wine and they honestly help me clean out my closet. Win!
