Getting a weekend recap written on Sunday to post on Monday is proving to be impossible. I guess that just means I am taking full advantage of every weekend minute ;) This weekend was a packed one, and left me feeling so lucky and blessed with amazing friendships.
Friday I flew to Philly and Molly picked me up from the airport. We grabbed a drink at a cute spot near her work before picking up Anna from the train station and heading to Avalon. It was awesome to catch up with both of them in the car. It has been over a year since we have all three been together at the same time! We rented a big beach house for the weekend so we met up with some of the other girls there, ordered pizza, drank wine, and spent the night catching up. (Yes, we are officially old but I love it!)
Saturday afternoon was Molly's bridal shower at the Avalon Golf Club. When she left to get her hair blown out, it was game on for me. I was in charge of decorations and since I knew I was flying into town, I had figure out a way to get all of the decorations without being smashed. I made all of the tissue paper puffs at home but left them folded up and kept all of the cut outs off the sticks. A little hot glue and a ton of puffing later, the decorations were ready to go. The shower turned out beautiful and everyone had a great time. I got tasked with making the bow bouquet and although I've never made one before, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out :)
After the shower, we headed back to the house to get ready for her bachelorette party that night. Drinking wine, swapping clothes and sharing stories while getting ready felt like we were all back in the Tri Delta house. (11 of us lived in the house together one or both years!) We rented "the jitney" party bus for the night and had the sweetest driver ever. He even decorated the inside of the bus for us! We went to Congress Hall in Cape May and ended the night at Circle Tavern in Avalon. I think we might have ruined a few people's date night with our singing and song requests (it was Valentine's Day) but we had a blast! The only downside? The temperature was 6 feels like -15 degrees and there was snow! This southern girl was not used to weather like that ;)
Sunday morning we had coffee and bagels from Avalon Coffee and re-hashed the night before my flight back to Mississippi. It was so nice to be able to spend time with everyone and I can't wait until May to celebrate again at Molly's wedding!
