(continuing my recap of the road to the wedding)
My best friends and I rode tripped to Biloxi, MS for a fabulous weekend at the beach for my bachelorette party. Y'all have never heard of Biloxi? That's shocking. It's an amazing beach town, similar to Panama City. (#lie) Okay, not really. It's a small little town and the beach isn't that great, but it was perfect for us because it was close and full of sunshine!
This trip was arguably one of the greatest of my life. It was two weeks before the wedding and a perfect time to get away from the stress of wedding planning. Plus, it was with my best friends, who are really like my sisters. We stuffed 5 girls and luggage into a Toyota Camry. Basically we brought "junk in the trunk" to life.
We rented out a vacation house right along the beach. It was absolutely gorgeous. Some of the homes still had destruction left from Hurricane Katrina and it was heart wrenching to see. The trip started out beautifully, as all road trips generally do. Isn't the drive usually the best part?? After a minor near freak-out when we were almost locked out of our house the first night, we settled right in for girl time, sunshine, and delicious food.

Our days consisted of laying out beach-side with tunes and great reads, with possibly a little hermit crab hunting thrown in. Our nights were full of belly laughs, face masks, decorating underwear (yes, y'all read that right), scavenger hunts, and plenty of food. We may not do bachelorette parties the typical way, but we surely do them well. My friends thought of everything: fake bling, decorations, games, and goodies.
A couple hundred hermit crabs? Yes, please.
This was the funniest thing...we laughed until we cried. Face masks are awkward.
What a view.

My soul sister...who was my life saver wedding wise.
G-rated scavenger hunt.
Cheesiness makes the world go 'round. : )
We came back refreshed and I was ready to marry my love. Not that I wasn't before the trip. Ha.
I love reliving these pre-wedding days. Thanks for sharing the memories with me!
