Hi my name is Meredith and I used to write a blog. Sheesh! I can’t believe I haven’t written in so long. I feel like I have so much to share. But life is full of phases right? Happy phases, sad phases, stressful phases, we’ve all experienced them at one time or another. I feel as though I just went through a five-month crazy-busy, can’t-slow-down phase that caused my life-work-school-blog balance to become obsolete, so now I’m trying to fix it. Quite possibly the best motivator ever to fix it is having my boyfriend home. That being said, I will be back to writing more frequently soon, soon, soon!
Speaking of phases, my family is obviously going through a wedding phase right now. My sister’s wedding is 10 days away…eeeeek! As stressful as wedding plans and preparations can be, it has been so fun to celebrate Kimmie. Two weeks ago, nine of us jet-set to Atlantic City for her bachelorette-party weekend and it was memorable. I was so excited because the bridal party includes many of my closest friends and family members, but I was also a bit nervous because I just wanted her to love everything about the weekend. Well, after dancing, laughing, drinking, celebrating & gambling I think it is safe to say she loved it, and safe to say I have had my Atlantic City fix for awhile!
Since my sister’s bridal party members come from all over New England, it made the most sense for those of us in Northern New England to fly to Atlantic City. Obviously mimosas in Logan Airport were necessary at 7 a.m.
After our zillion modes of transportation (car, flight, shuttle, car), we finally arrived at our hotel for the weekend, Revel Resort, and scrambled to decorate Kimmie’s hotel room. A lingerie clothesline, gift bags, and lots of pink bubbly helped to spruce up the room. She loved it!
Saturday night was also memorable, beginning at American Cut Steakhouse and ending at HQ nightclub. We all wore black while Kimmie wore white (and her bride-to-be-sash), along with our matching cute/obnoxious flashing rings I insisted we wear! We celebrated a birthday too (love you, Sar!) What a blast we had. The pictures say it all.
What a fun girls weekend…love these ladies! I think it’s safe to say we have all had our Atlantic City fixes for awhile We love you, Kimmie! As fun as the weekend was, I certainly wasn’t loving life upon our return since I had 4 finals that next week, starting on Monday. Thankfully, I got through them, with lots of help from iced coffee!
Now I am thrilled to say I am done with classes until my semester begins in September. Best.feeling.ever. Since studying is over-with, I can focus on my maid-of-honor speech, which I am starting to get a bit nervous about…help!!
Have a great rest of the week, friends : –)
Have you ever been the maid of honor or spoken at the wedding? Any tips you can share with me?
Ever been to Atlantic City? If so, where’s your favorite spot?
I loved our hotel, I’d stay there again in a heartbeat!
