back from the beach

by lori on April 2, 2012

hello there luvs!!!

we are back! from the girls “bachelorette” weekend at the beach . we were in Treasure Island off St. Pete beach Florida for the weekend. we had a blast! we did not want our weekend with our best friends to end. we had an amazing time! love reminiscing memories with these ladies.

I won’t bore you with too many details but will share a few pics from the weekend

the beautiful St. Pete beach. it was so beautiful and relaxing!

hanging out at the beachme enjoying the lovely sunny weather. getting my Vita-D.

in hot tubthe second day there was no sun so we got to hang out in the hot tub before the rain came.

curlsSaturday we all got dolled up. one of my best friends is a hair stylist so I had her do my hair. love the curls!

Michelle and I

my friends surprised me with a limo!!! I was so well taken care of with these girls.  each one of us is different but yet similar and we just all click.

hanging out at a local bar before heading to the restaurant for dinner.

over all I had a blast and so blessed to have such amazing friends! we now live all over and do not get to see each other that much. we were still missing one friend. there usually is 7 of us. it is so much fun and a little crazy when we are all together! fun times with these gals. there is never any judging. since we all grew up together we all know each other so well and we just let loose and have a good time.

thanks girls for an amazing weekend that I will cherish forever! can’t wait to do it all again at the wedding!!!

like I mentioned Michelle and I are back in town. getting work done and unpacking.  oh the joys of traveling.

in case you missed anything while we were gone

today is a celebration of one amazing person.

re-cap of our weekly workouts that helped us get beach ready.

gluten free baked vegan donut recipe

mmm wish I had one of those right now to enjoy!

and hopefully later today we plan on catching up with all of our blogging friends! hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. did anyone else do anything fun?? anyone else enjoy having girls weekend?  what was the best thing you did all weekend? do you find yourself reminiscing a lot when you with old friends?

mine was spending time with my best friends.

till next time,

Looks like you had beautiful weather and a fun weekend! My two girlfriends and I from university meet up every few months in a different city (depending where we are all living). Those weekends are always the best! Love how we can catch up, like it’s been no time at all since we last saw each other.

You guys were so close to me! I’ve never been to Treasure Island but I’ve heard that it’s beautiful! Was the sand nearly white?

And I LOVE the curls!!

What an amazing weekend! Looks like you girls really had a great time… Hanging out with old friends is always fun, there is something about the bond that you have with them… It’s really like nothing else! I can’t wait for it to be nice enough up here to hit the beach!

Lisa April 2, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Looks like you guys had a lovely weekend!! I love your hair and outfits in the pictures of you guys going out, fabulous! I was sick this weekend so unfortunately no fun for me! I do love reminiscing with old friends though

What a lovely time! Good for you.

Definitely, reminiscing is a fun thing with old friends you don’t get to see very often–also seeing how each one has changed..

Girls weekends are the best! And for a fun occasion like a bachelorette celebration!

My college roommates and I try to get together once a year (last year was Orlando, this year will be Boston). We always have a great time!!

I was just back home in the Cayman Islands for 2 weeks so you must have been just north of me at the same time! So nice to be in warm weather, let me tell you! Your photos are amazing, looks like you have a really solid group of friends. It’s tough when you all move all over but with true friends it feels like you never left once you’re back! :)

Lauren April 2, 2012 at 4:42 pm

Looks like a blast! You ladies looked gorgeous! Xoxo

Lori your hair looks gorgeous!!! I miss my long hair :( I could never get it to do that–only when I had someone do it for my cousins wedding.

So so so pretty!!!

I’m glad you girls had a great time! You all look like a bunch of hotties! I am admiring you and Michelle’s sexy guns!! Tough lookin’ gals ;-) April 2, 2012 at 9:10 pm

Beautiful! Very happy for you, and a bit jealous :)

Gillian, she just used a curling iron and hair spray. she is going to be doing something similar for the Wedding. she made it seem so simple to do haha
