My Bachelorette

Well, it's finally here!  For the next few weeks months years [just kidding... I think], I'll be sharing everything about our wedding weekend!  Mike and I flew back to Connecticut the Tuesday before our wedding to finalize plans, put together favors [thanks, Amanda!], play the golf course where we had the reception, and just spend time with family.  My MOH Laura decided to organize my bachelorette party for the Thursday night before my wedding because, you know, I went and screwed everything up and moved to South Carolina 3 months before the wedding.  It worked out really well and Mike had his bachelor party the same night at Foxwoods Casino.  In addition to my bridesmaids, some of my closest friends were sweet enough to come out and celebrate with me: friends I met through Mike and some amazing college friends...
circa May 2009...

We spent the night at Patriot Place in Foxborough, MA.  It's a fantastic little city that was built right outside Gillette Stadium, where the New England Patriots play.  We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel right there, went out to a hibachi dinner, and danced the night away at Howl at the Moon!  

A huge thank you to each of the ladies who helped me piece together the night with photos.  The following photos are from 6 different phones and all help tell the story as no one person had anything that resembled a complete photo montage [as it should be]... FYI, some of you are definitely rolling your eyes that I'm sharing photos from my bachelorette party, but as I've said before, this blog is first and foremost for me to remember everything at my life as it happens, and this was the perfect night out with my girls!
adorable favors that Laura and Rebecca made

After a nice greasy breakfast, we spent Friday afternoon getting our nails done before the rehearsal.
