Bachelorette Weekend 

Lifestyle, Photography, travel, Wedding December 29, 2015

Shout out to my phenomenal bridesmaids!   Your crazy bride here, wanted a weekend in the snow rather than a night of debauchery.  And you know they wanted some debauchery.  But these lovely ladies took me on a little mountain adventure anyway!  Even though they all couldn’t make it. They all went out of their way to plan or send goodies. 

I mean look at this cute little condo complex.  The snow was just perfect.  We arrived on a Friday with snow already on the ground stayed on Saturday while it snowed, then left on Sunday after the snow melted. 

Look at this living room!!! Ugh just perfection. 

These white walls, adorable little stools, and old school Mammoth map…perfecto! 

Everything was just clean and trendy. 

I bought a special Mammoth jacket and I’m obsessed!  There’s my glitter mug. That tutorial will come soon.           

We had logs. 

And we had fire. 

So of course we made s’more. 

My cute contemplative LaKeisha. 

We drank hot wine. Yup, hot wine!  Red wine, burbon, and cinnamon, I think. Delish!

  
I played in the snow! 

  
And I used the Fujitilm instant camera they so graciously bought me. 

   

Then I flexed my night photo muscles and took some real pictures. We were literally frozen after this. It took almost an hour. 

We had to say good bye but we promised to return and bring more of our girls next time.

Calling all my Bridesmaids

It’s go time…wedding planning has commenced and bridesmaids have been chosen.  Why ask like a normal person, when you can mail them a balloon filled with glitter and a note?  I never would, and that’s why I thank Pinterest for it’s many wonders.

To get started you’ll need: a box, string, balloons, glitter (duh), Safety pins (not pictured), a funnel (I clearly made mine from paper and tape), and your message.  I got my supplies from Moskatels but if you don’t live in SoCal you can go to Michaels, also known as, the best place on earth.

Here’s my message.  I took it all the way back to junior high for this one.

Roll up the message and slide into the deflated balloon.  Pretty simple.

Then use your funnel to add the glitter.  I used large and small glitter.  You can NEVER have too much glitter, don’t let anyone tell you anything different.

Then blow up the balloon, make sure it still fits the box (releasing air from a glitter filled balloon is NO fun).  Tie the string and add the “pop me” note and safety pin.

Now your done and you can make all the ladies, or gents, in your life feel super special.  I love all of my ladies!!!  More arts and crafts to come.  We have another art day scheduled for this Sunday!!!
