MMIM: AC bachlorette weekend!

Good morning and welcome to a new week!
I know summer still lingers on .. but this was the “last” weekend of summer since school is back in session this week.

What better way than to end the summer than Cassidy’s bachelorette in AC! We had so much fun, lots of laughs, & such a great time from the moment we woke up until we went to bed.

Here are some pictures + highlights of the day!

MiMM MIMM #64 with Girls Night and More!

We arrived around 10:30 at our hotel {Golden Nugget} & met with a few of the other girls who were there while
waiting for the rest of the gang .

We started off with some lite fare and & drinks {She could only drink out of her pimp cup ;-)}
{all of the girls!}

We lounged down by pool for a few hours, catching up, drinking mimosas, catching sunrays & listening to the music they were playing.

After awhile, a few of us snuck away to go to the room to make it a little more “bachelorette” approved before she headed to the room 🙂
Lemon drops, cupcakes, strawberries, champagne & more!
We enjoyed a nice spread while we relaxed, got ready for the night & did some fun things for Cassidy.

We each brought something she can use on their honeymoon, while opening them she also had to guess who gave it and why .. It was funny to hear her answers!
{bachelorette overload}

We had reservations at The Continental over at Caesars, so we finished getting ready & headed out the door!

Dinner was so good! {We love Starr restaurants!}
The food came out like tapas, so we chose a lot! I also loved their presentation with everything.
My favorites from the night … buffalo chicken meatballs & the rocky road dessert {typical} 🙂
{Me + the bachelorette }
Followed by dinner.. it was time to hit the casino & club for a few hours!

… I must admit, we were all pretty tired by the end of the night! We didn’t last nearly as long as we thought we would, we were all shocked. but sometimes getting in your pj’s & talking with the girls is just what the doctor ordered.

We polished off the hummus & cupcakes from earlier and the day and all got in bed.

I arrived home Sunday ready for a longgggggggg cat nap.
It was such a fun filled day with everyone & to celebrate Cassidy’s last few weeks as Miss Burton before she becomes Mrs. Carre!

Alrighty …
Off to scratch things off of my to do list.

Head over to Katie’s blog to see what else is marvelous! Have a great Monday!

MIMM #2 {with bridal shower + bach highlights!}

Hello! Happy Monday everyone 🙂
MiMM Marvelous in my Monday #50 with Weekend Highlights

So many marvelous things occurred this weekend. Two in particular. This weekend we celebrated our best friends bridal shower and bachelorette on Saturday! What a great turn out! We did a brunch style shower with different finger foods varying from: bagels, mini muffins, mini pancakes, yogurt bar, donuts, fresh fruit, coffee + juice! and of course brownies! I think this is the best style to do, always a little something for everyone. I will let the pics do most of the talking for this post!

After the shower ended, Cassidy, Ellen & I got to hang out in the kitchen for a few hours and eat more brownies catch up. Whenever we get together its like no time has passed!

Before we knew it 5 pm rolled around and it was time to get ready for the night time festivities! We quickly ordered some food from down the street, got dolled up and headed to the train station to meet some of the other girls so we can all ride together to Philly!

Our first stop was Jolly’s Dueling Piano Bar where we did an open bar for a few hours… and defiantly took advantage of it! 🙂

It was so fun, and the guys who played the piano were very hilarious and engaging with the audience. There were a few other bachelorettes there so it was kind of one big party and drinks were flowing.

IMG_3530After we danced our little hearts out at this place, before catching the last train we went to one more place to polish off the night! The Public House had a DJ playing, fun energy, people dancing everywhere. Defiantly a place you want to go to end your night 🙂
We had so much fun this weekend celebrating Ellen! I was honestly SO exhausted yesterday though. WELL WORTH IT 🙂
Now its time to get back on track. Smoothies are going to be incorporated, MORE water <– I’ve totally been slacking on this, working out again + rest days and of course self love days!!

Count down is on until her wedding! 1 month till the big day! 🙂

Have an awesome day friends xoxo
