Katie's Bachelorette Party in Wrightsville Beach!

Just a quick recap of Katie's fun bachelorette party this past weekend in Wrightsville Beach, NC!

Emily and I left Friday around 1:30pm and arrived in Wrightsville Beach around 5:30pm. It really wasn't a bad drive at all and it was great to REALLY get to talk to my best friend, other than the daily "how was your day?" routine. :) 

We had dinner reservations at Tower 7, a Baja Mexican grill that was close enough for us to walk to. I ordered the same thing that I usually get from Taco Boy (Baja fish taco) and if there were a competition between Tower 7 & Taco Boy, the winner would have been Taco Boy. It wasn't bad...Taco Boy's is just better. :)
That, my friends, is a Sangrita.

Saw this Great Dane walk by and we HAD to take a pic with him. His name is Beast. :)

After that we headed back to the hotel room for a little lingerie shower.

We freshened up and walked to the beach bars, where we attracted a bunch of looks. No, not because we're all ridiculously good looking (kidding), but because everyone is in flip flops and t-shirts and we're in ruffly pink dresses and 4 inch wedge heels. Oh well. 

Saturday we took advantage of the complimentary breakfast and headed to the beach. For some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to just put sunscreen on my whole body, except my stomach and upper things. Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad idea. My stomach turned out looking like the color of my pink dress the first night. I wish I was exaggerating. On top of that, I had legit hand prints on my shoulders from where I attempted to rub in my sunscreen.

For dinner on Saturday night, we ate at BlueWater Grill. The location reminded me a lot of Shem Creek. Courtney Jo's birthday was Wednesday so (thanks to Savannah) we surprised her with a little treat and a song!

After dinner we took a cab to downtown Wilmington. Christine (sorority sister and Emily's former roommate) and her husband live in Wilmington so they met us out for a little while! We did the usual bar hopping and ended the evening with late night pizza. Perfect weekend!
