I'm getting pretty good at this bachelorette party thing...

Monday, October 08, 2012

Well the first weekend in October, 2012 has officially come and gone.  Kinda bittersweet how quickly time passes!!  It was another fun one, though that involved a full day sitting/recovering on the couch…  Oh, why you ask?

Friday after school a group of girls piled into 2 cars and traveled up to the National Harbor to celebrate a co-worker’s bachelorette party.  We stayed at the Gaylord and oh my gosh it was gorgeous.  Think died and gone to Heaven in a hotel gorgeous. 

And expensive.

Very very expensive. 

However, it was well worth every last cent of my October paycheck and we had a blast.  We got to National Harbor and decided to walk around and peruse through the fancy shops and enjoy the beautiful weather.  It was absolutely gorgeous!!!  And the shops had such fun artsy stuff. 

We began the night for dinner at Cadillac Ranch, and decided we’d come back later for the bull rides [we did, in fact go back; however, I did not bull ride… our willing bachelorette did, though!!]. 

We then hopped next door to a dueling piano bar and had a blast dancing to the live music.  Seriously, if you’re ever in the area, also check out Bobby McKey’s (just don’t try to order a drink… A small Coors light on draft was $4.75… But the 1st one I got was somehow $5.25?? hmm)  Again, our willing bachelorette played along with our gags and got to go on stage and have a somewhat inappropriate song sung to her in front of everyone – it was so funny!

After our 2nd stop at Cadillac Ranch we headed back to the Gaylord and spent the rest of the evening at their top floor bar (it’s not technically roof top, but essentially it is? Haha).  The view was so pretty – over looking the harbor and all the lights.  Loved it.

So needless to say there was no Saturday/Sunday wine festival enjoying for this girl this weekend, but it was worth it.  I spent Saturday all cuddled up on my couch (…kind of did that on Sunday, too) and got some gift ideas for Nick’s upcoming birthday, went to Church alone on Sunday, went grocery shopping, watched some football (especially proud of PSU this weekend!!), and eagerly anticipated his return from Delaware. 

Hopefully this week will be nice and easy (it’s a teacher workday today – waaahoo!) and we’ll get to Friday quickly for our Zac Brown Band concert Friday night.  October might be ¼ over, but it’s shaping up to be a fabulous month (as always).

How was your weekend?  Was there any “recovering” involved ;) 

linking up per usual with my girl, Sami, my girl Leeann, and Miss Dana.
