Bachelorette Weekend Shenanigans

What. A. Weekend. This weekend was definitely filled with shenanigans and I'm already missing all the girls! So I'm linking up with Sami to share my weekend shenanigans with you! I'll try to keep this as short as possible (mainly, because I'm still a tad hungover whoops.. ).


I drove down to Charlotte early in the morning and spent some time with Christian, grabbed lunch and picked up my bridesmaid dress! Once 2pm rolled around, it was time to pack up the car and get on the road. The road from Charlotte to Wilmington is SO boring. There's nothing to look at and it's just one straight shot. We did stop at a peach stand and get amazing ice cream to make the ride go by quickly. After a pretty fun ride down, we waited on everyone to get to the hotel and then had some of the best pizza I have ever had. Then it was time for beach bars. We had an absolute BLAST and the bride had some really great quotes (although she would probably shoot me if I posted my favorite one).


Saturday was for recovery mostly. We woke up just for free breakfast at the hotel (obviouslyyyyy) and everyone headed back upstairs to nap. Yes, we're cool. Around noon, we headed out to the beach and it was a GLORIOUS day outside. I was so happy to see some sunshine instead of snow like we had in Boone last Wednesday. Although, once we got down to the water the wind was a little bit chilly so we didn't stay as long as we wanted to. 

After the beach, we headed to a restaurant to sit outside, drink a couple beers and I had the most amazing salmon gyro! After lunch, it was nap time again... sorry bout it. Then we rallied for dinner. And by that I mean our goal to leave the hotel was no later than 7:30p... we left at 8:40p. So we rushed through some Mexican and more beers and headed back to play some fun Bachelorette party games before grabbing a taxi to downtown Wilmington. 

Downtown was a very interesting experience and I'm not sure if any of us really want to do it again. There were 9 of us, so we kind of stood out everywhere we went and we got a lot of awkward attention at the first bar. It was mainly military guys trying to creep and find girls to go home with them.  The second bar was AWFUL. Without going into too much detail (mainly because this story would be a post in itself), there was a bar fight in the bathroom. We were involved. 

Now, let me clarify before you think we're trashy. Two girls in the bathroom were drunk, angry girls already yelling when we walked in. One of them got in Kristin's face and then started wailing on two of  the other girls with me. So I guess it was more of a jumping. When the bouncer got her off my friends, we all went into a stall to regroup and calm down and make sure everyone was okay. They girls come back and rip open the door and try to do it again. It took 3 of us holding the door shut and the bouncer getting her again before she left. The cops ended up taking them out of the bar and we're not really sure what happened after that. But we, of course, left feeling like we were on an episode of Cops or Jerry Springer. We found a relatively calm rooftop bar to finish off the night with a couple more beers/shots and grabbed a cab home. 

I also developed a sunburn from those 2 hours on the beach even though I wore sunscreen. And I've got a small goose egg on my head from where I very soberly walked into a metal door in the hotel with my temple.

It was definitely an eventful, fun, scary, crazy, awesome weekend. But now I'm in need of a weekend to recover from my weekend... 

PS. There were obviously more girls there but no one has uploaded pictures yet, so I only had a couple on my phone to upload. I'll show some good ones later this week!

How was your weekend? No fights I hope!

I'm glad I'm not the only one hungover. Sorry that girl tried to fight you! Thank goodness no one was really hurt.
And I'm even more sorry you soberly injured yourself. That's the worst.
