First off I would like to apologize for taking so long to post another blog. Anyways, this past weekend was my bachelorette weekend. Nine of my closest friend and I spent the weekend in Charleston, SC. We had a great time. We got there friday night and me, amy, kristy and holly ate dinner at Banana Cabanas while we were waiting for everyone else to get into town. We stayed at a house on the Isle of Palms that slept 24 people. It was beautiful, had a view of the ocean, porches all around and a widows walk. When Amy, Kristy, Holly and I got there first, it was like the real world. We toured the whole house and picked out our rooms. Every bedroom had its own bathroom, which was really nice with 10 girls!! It had a pool, although we did not need it and an extra family room upstairs. Oh and did I mention an elevator... yes. Amy and Liz got on the elevator but, it was not exactly needed. We also went to the gas station on the island to get beer etc. for the night. We encountered some very entertaining drunk people there. We stayed up late friday night drinking, talking and playing catch phrase. We played blondes vs. brunettes because there was 5 of each! The next morning we got up and went to breakfast. And might I add that we had said the night before we wanted to get out of the house by 10. And all of us 10 girls were ready by 9:45. I think that is a record. We then went to breakfast paid for by my dad!! We went to downtown charleston to enjoy the market and all the shopping. While downtown we also took a carriage ride through historic charleston which was beautiful!! We then made it back to the house where we rested for a couple of hours, refreshed and got ready to go out for the night. We took a cab downtown to the Noisy Oyster where we had dinner and then bar hopped around charleston for the evening. Our last stop was the saloon, which is not like the saloon in Columbia that only plays country music, it was what they called down there the coyote ugly bar. We had a lot of fun dancing and getting free shots from the bar owner. We then hitched a ride back in a cab driven by our fabulous cab drive Keith! The next morning we woke up and sadly had to get back on the road. I was exhausted but managed to make it back without falling asleep. The whole weekend my friends were amazing. They would not let me pay for a thing. I didn't even have to drive my car!! Although there were a few people missing this weekend that I would have like to have had there, it was blast. I could not ask for better friends and I have to say that I am truly blessed!! Thank you all!!

Pictures to come!!
