Weekend recap

This past weekend was a girls’ weekend. It was Kristen’s bachelorette party and Geof was away at a convention. I ran around most of Friday getting things together for the evening, came home cleaned the house and then got ready for the ladies arrival. We had some pink cocktails and cookies. The drink of the night was tasty and simple. I made pink lemonade vodka with Sprite Zero. We headed out to The Deck and let the festivities begin. We had fun, fun, fun and did lots of laughing and dancing. We closed the place down and called it a night. Funny story of the night: There is a hotel connected to The Deck and there were two creepy guys that had a set of binoculars and were staring at ladies. It became the joke of the night, but when you think about it, it’s pretty weird.

A little bit of decorations

The ladies minus me before we headed out

Kelly and I

Saturday, Kris, Kel and I went to breakfast at The Coffee Station and then headed to the pool for an afternoon of swimming and basking in the sun. The weather was gorgeous and it was so nice to relax. After the pool, we headed back to my house showered and headed out to the mall and then to the movies. We went to see Vampires Suck. It was pretty horrible, but one of those movies that takes zero thought and just what I needed after a busy weekend. I kept saying, “boo” after all the bad jokes and I think we were laughing about that more than anything else.

Sunday, Kristen took off early in the morning and Geof got home in the afternoon. We spent the rainy day relaxing and later on I decided to watch Twilight. I took a little nap and then we caught up on all of our Sunday night HBO shows. True Blood was so good this week. I cannot believe the season is already almost over.

Come back tomorrow for a great giveaway!

Glad you had a great weekend! Those guys with the binoculars sound super creepy!

Binoculars? That's borderline creepy.....but my friends and I probably would have gotten a good laugh out of it too!

I love the decorations, the flowers and balloons are so pretty and festive!

It looks like y'all had a blast - everyone looks like they're having a great time in the pictures.

That is the creepiest thing ever about the guys with the binoculars. Why didn't they just come down to The Deck and interact with the ladies in person and up-close?! Weird!

I have got to get caught up on this season of True Blood!

Hope you have a great week!

Sounds like you ladies had a blast and the pics seem to show that.

Thanks for letting me know about Vampires Suck! Although it does look dumb I was considering seeing it. You saved me $12!
