We’re here celebrating Meredith’s single lady status before she marries Scott in October!
After a few hours of chatting on the balcony, the other girls arrived and Meredith and I headed to the pool while they got ready before dinner.
The other four all went to vet school together (Meredith and I were roommates at Davidson) so it’s been fun to hear tidbits about their jobs. And hilarious whenever we see an animal (like the piggie in Magic Mike!)
I was in charge of choosing the restaurants for the weekend and EAT American Bistro came highly recommended by my VA Beach readers. It seemed to have a funky fun vibe and the menu looked incredible!
In celebration of girls’ night out, I ordered a virgin martini – I think this was lemon, lime, pineapple and soda. I’ve really had fun with all the virgin drinks out there! I prefer them on the tart side, so a citrus base is preferred to a really fruity one.
I had only had my peach and some popcorn for a snack, so I dove into this [IKEA!] bread basket
I ordered an entrée special – the Crab Duo – a softshell crab topped with a blue crab cake with succotash, cucumber salad and a brussels sprout slaw. It was DIVINE – so many creative flavors!!!! And I just love crab.
Our flashy group photo : )
I have the pleasure of being the designated driver this weekend, which I am happy to do. It’s kind of a privilege!
Our next stop was indeed Magic Mike – seen at this cool nice theater called Beach Movie Bistro that served food and drinks!
I sipped on a refreshing water while the girls got 22 ounces of Fat Tire : )
The movie was…not very good. Fun to see at a bachelorette party, but I’m glad I didn’t see this at home. I didn’t like the characters very much (or the drugs women should never take drinks or drugs from strangers!), and the plot was just OK. Barely OK. 50 Shades was 10x better if that’s saying anything : )
When we got back to the room near midnight, Meredith was excited to find a honeymoon’s worth of lingerie waiting for her!!
Lauren and Anna insisted I sleep in one of the beds while they shared the fold out sofa. Very unnecessary of them but very kind. The baby and I were thankful because we rolled over about 100 times together last night. He woke me up with some nice rolls at 7:30, so I’m blogging from the balcony with a beach view!
Now: girl seeks breakfast.
