When you hear the words “bachelorette party,” what comes to mind? Girls all glammed up? Limo rides downtown? Packed dance floor and strobe lights?
That’s what I thought of, too. But when it came time for my own bachelorette party, I realized I wanted something more low key. And by that, I mean reeeeally low key. I’m talking sweatpants, hair in a ponytail, laying on a couch. I wanted to do nothing for a whole weekend, and to bring all my best friends along for the fun! Maybe it’s because I’m getting older (27 is old, right?) or because I have a lot on my plate lately with wedding planning, but I could hardly stomach the idea of a night out on the town.
So, a weekend spent in sweatpants with my besties was what I chose. I can’t even explain how excited I am for this coming weekend! My sister, who is also my Matron of Honor, found a large lakeside cabin near Brainerd with plenty of space for our group. The kitchen is huge, which will be great for mixing drinks, cooking breakfasts, and hanging out with the girls. The theme of the event is “Yes! That’s what she said,” which means there will still be plenty of typical bachelorette fun. There will certainly be racy shenanigans, dirty-minded games, and who knows what else.
The best part about my bachelorette weekend is the rare treat that it is to spend a couple days with my friends. Schedules are busy, lives are on different tracks, and it’s so difficult to get people together. Escaping to lake country is going to be a welcome retreat, and I can’t imagine celebrating my last days as a single lady any other way.
