A Spa, Some Ring Pops and more than a few martinis....

This weekend I attended my first of three bachelorette many of you know I am fortunate enough to be a bridesmaid in three weddings this summer. The showers for said weddings are almost over (one left this weekend) and now we are embarking on the bachelorette season....

Saturday afternoon a group of bridesmaids (all but two) met at a lovely spa for a treatment of our choice. (I got a massage. It was a good massage for the most part, although the woman was just a bit abrupt with her movements and had me gasping a few times as she attacked the knots in my back.) We were treated to lunch, wine and tea while we were there (very fancy I know)! Then we headed over to Maggie McFly's where we met up with the other two bridesmaids. Ring pops were distributed, martinis were ordered and a deck of bachelorette cards was passed around (Thank goodness we got a good natured waiter, who was willing not only to put up with our antics, but to actually participate!)....I won't bore you with the details but I will say that by the end of the evening I had come to one conclusion:

I really miss hanging out with my girlfriends.

I adore my husband and I love being with fact there are times when I feel I don't see him nearly enough (especially during the week when meetings and Tae Kwon Do classes keep us apart until later on at night). I also really love the few times we've gone out with other couples, that is always fun!

But there is something to be said for a group of women hanging out and laughing together. There are conversations that can only be had with other women, things men just wouldn't how you have to watch what you eat as bikini season approaches, or what kind of kiss you should do on the alter, or how it makes you nuts that your boyfriend/fiance/husband does _____(fill in the blank) but how great it is that he does ____ (fill in this blank too). These are things men just don't think about or just don't get.

So, here's a toast to all of my soon to be married friends, and all of the amazing women I'm blessed to count as my wouldn't be the same without you!

I agree - girlfriends rock. It's nice to know when all else around you is crazy, there are always the girls to rely on...and eat ice cream with, and watch sappy movies with, and drink wine with, and debate whether Luke Wilson or Jake Gyllenhall is know, the important things in life!
