Bachelorette in the Poconos

Last Friday through Sunday I escaped for a girls weekend in Philly to celebrate one of my best friends, Alyssa's, upcoming nuptials.  Friday night we enjoyed a "restaurant crawl" that included three courses of delicious foods at three different restaurants.  I wasn't on camera duty that night so I'll have to come back with more details after I steal some photos from friends.

Saturday morning we woke up early and eleven girls loaded into cars to caravan up to the Poconos. 
We arrived around lunch time and quickly fixed ourselves a simple lunch to enjoy on the cabin's deck overlooking the gorgeous lake. 

We spent the entire afternoon relaxing on the dock, cramming onto the end so we could all soak up a little sun.  The twins were ambitious and went for a canoe ride while some girls were even brave enough to jump in the cool water.

super awesome weekend coozies

Our evening events included playing Imaginiff and eating a yummy dinner of roasted potatoes, grilled bbq chicken, and a fresh salad before playing a few bachelorette games. 

guess the panties game
Once it was dark, we hung out by the campfire toasting marshmallows until bedtime.  No mountain trip is complete without s'mores!

Sunday morning went by too fast as we enjoyed some french toast, straightened up a bit, and anxiously awaited Alyssa's "signing of the guestbook."  The cabin has a tradition writing a somewhat humorous, detailed report of the time spent at the lake.  It was fun to hear our contribution.

The weekend went by way too fast of course but we had a fabulous time.  I loved getting to spend time celebrating my best friend and enjoying the mountain cabin that is so special to her.  It was great to be with some of my long-time favorite friends and make lots of new friends.  Can't wait to catch up with all the girls again at the September wedding!

No weekend is complete without some self-timed group shots...
