A Bachelorette Party

June 6, 2011

What would I do without girlfriends in my life?  Probably go crazy. 
This past weekend I had my Bachelorette Party and was spoiled rotten. Zach left for Chicago for his Bachelor Party, so I was in desperate need of a night out on the town with my ladies. 
To begin the day, Kenz and Holly surprised me with a mani and pedicure! 

Kenz was gracious enough to take some outfit shots as well. I am in love with this dress from Spool No. 72! It has been hanging in my closet since winter waiting for the perfect sunny day to make it’s apperance. The lace, little buttons, flowers…all lovely.  Paired with wedges from Forever21, I was ready to party. 

We then met up with Emily (my future sister-in law!) and went to two local shops, Rock Paper Scissors Consignment & Pink Blvd in East Hills where drinks and yummy snacks were awaiting us in the back. Kenz made a delicious drink of champagne and pomegranate grape juice while we picked at the fresh strawberries, breads, and chocolate! I mean, come on, how cool is it to shop, hang out with sweet chics, and drink champagne?  It got even better…we all got special discounts at both places! 

Emily, Me, Kenz, & Holly
The floppy hat could not be avoided. 

We ended up taking a tour of Zach and my future house briefly.  So glad we did because two of the neighbors came out to introduce themselves; making me really excited about settling down on that street! 
Dinner and more drinks at The Green Well…I got the quinoa and white bean burger, which I highly recommend! My good friend Anna was able to come out and catch up with all of us…we’ve all been living so far away from each other, it was refreshing to have the crew together again.  Makes me miss college life sometimes.  One of my favorite parts of the night was when Kenz pulled out a sheet of paper and started reading a list of questions she had emailed Zach to answer…like what is your first memory of Kate or when did you know you loved her? The answers made me miss Zach so much. 
We ended up staying out at the Green Well pretty late and headed back to my place for gin and tonics, followed by more present opening and girl talk.  It was the perfect ending for a fun, busy day! I’ll leave you with this last image…this pretty much sums up the night and how I was feeling.  Happy!!! 🙂  
And yes, I’m in my pj’s.
Thanks again girls for an amazing day, I had a blast.
Also, a big thank you to Kenz for capturing every moment with tons of pictures. 
Much love,

    That sounds like an incredible day of fun. I can’t believe your wedding is so fast approaching! Please keep the updates coming because it is fun to live vicariously through them (I haven’t even crossed the boyfriend milestone, haha). I am diggin’ the pajamas photo at the end there. (:

    Ah how fun. You look so cute as always and your mani/pedi is making me want to go get mine done!
    The question and answer thing is such a cute idea. You should post some of his answers. 🙂
    I’ve finally figured out who you remind me of. KATE MIDDLETON. Yes that is exactly who it is! I’ve been trying to put my finger on it this entire time so I’m glad to have finally figured it out. You’re like her twin! I swear.
