Before I get to the Germany part-two post, I wanted to tell you all about the best day ever. Yesterday I woke up at 5am. Thanks jet lag! I took a long bubble bath, unpacked, and then got ready to meet the girls for breakfast. We went to Sea Dog Brewing Company which has (ready for this?!) a build your own bloody mary bar. We all had eggs benedict and mimosas and marys, and after the meal the girls surprised me with the best treat ever. They had booked a massage and manicure for me at Lucinda’s, and then later in the afternoon, we would be going over to Coco Cheveux to get our makeup and hair all done up. The day would end with drinks at Casey’s house before hitting the town for some dancing. Because I live in Amsterdam there probably wont be a chance for a traditional bachelorette party, so the girls wanted to surprise me with some pampering. My mom was even in on it and managed to keep it a secret! My girlfriends really are some of the most kind and generous people around.Amaze-balls bloody mary bar.The chick who styled my hair was awesomely talented.
Meet Gus, Casey’s new pup. He’s still a baby and is already 40 lbs!! He’s a bit of a mutt, and has the most adorable, saggy puppy face. Can we play every day, Gus??? After some serious puppy snuggles, we exchanged gifts. I brought the girls stroopwafels and made them Miley wrecking ball ornaments!! And Katie bought me this gorgeous bottle opener. . . .which will come in very handy and is stunning to boot.
From there we were total girls. We primped, we giggled, we listened to pop, and we consumed an avalanche of cocktails. We also took a billion photos to document our lovely lips and locks and fun times together. Beguiling banter to say the least, here’s a look at some of my girl’s night favs:
Yes, Amie is eating a whole bowl of vodka-jello. And no, I did not expect the girls to wear their Miley ornaments as earrings!! After an epic night of dancing and flirting around Portland, we all crashed at Casey’s after a delicious late night stop at McDonalds (uh oh!). Shout out to Casey’s amazing husband Adam who not only drove us to and from Portland to dance, but also drove us all home the next morning in a massive snow storm. I’m so thankful for my amazing friends. We live a sea apart, but when we get together it’s as if no time has passed. I’m very, very thankful for my beautiful forever friends. Xx
