Bridal Talk Tuesday - Fling before the ring!

Life with Elizabeth
Happy Bridal Talk Tuesday ladies! Next week is officially "wedding week" so it seems appropriate that we discuss my bachelorette weekend in Charleston this week. I had absolutely the best time.  I had all of my besties all in one place (except Bethany who got a new job and had to move and get settled to start work immediately.) I loved spending a weekend in the South and Charleston has always been one of my favorite places. I was amazed by how inexpensive the drinks were compared to New York. $4 vodkas?!?! And it was great to get some pimento cheese, macaroni and cheese, and Southern Hospitality. 

Corey's sister, Kate, and I flew in from LaGuardia (now known as my least favorite airport) on Thursday. We arrived late afternoon, stocked up on a few supplies/Skinnygirl, and enjoyed catching up with Anna and Elizabeth. Then, we went to dinner at Magnolia's. If you're ever in Charleston, I highly recommend this restaurant. Upscale Southern cuisine and so delicious!

Then, we headed out to the bars. I used my Kindergarten teacher skills to win a game of "drunk musical chairs" and win six free shots. Then, thanks to my future sister-in-law, I was called onto the bar for some bachelorette games. I requested that Elizabeth join me. 

Starting Friday, we had a full schedule of fun, each day with a theme.

On Friday, we headed to breakfast then headed to get a group mani/pedi. I got Essie's Splash of Grenadine, which I've been wanting to try. Love!

We did a little window shopping on King Street then headed to Hyman's Seafood for a delicious lunch. Then we checked out the market and headed back to the hotel for a power nap and a happy hour. My cousin and maid of honor, Anna, made some awesome favor boxes for everyone. 

Friday night, we headed to dinner at Wild Wings, a college favorite of mine and my sorority sisters. 
Elizabeth was super excited about her $5 pitcher special.
Elizabeth love! 
My little, Molly, joined us. Then, my maid of honor, Elizabeth, met up with us for dinner after her after-work drive from Atlanta. Then, we headed out to another fun night on the town.

Saturday morning we headed to Folly beach to soak up a little sun.  
We were armed with our super cute "bachlorette" cups. Minor misspelling there but still adorable. 

Saturday evening, Elizabeth, my maid of honor, hosted a lingerie shower back at the hotel. 
I had a glowstick wand to indicate that I was the guest of honor. 

There were petit fors. 
And champagne.

 And games. Pin the kiss on the hunk. 
Which I failed at. :(
But not Elizabeth. 

There were gifts, which are for Corey's eyes only. Well..except for this fun gag gift. 
Which I had to try on and model immediately, over my dress of course.

 Then, the girls and I went to Social Wine Bar for a late dinner and drinks. I love tapas restaurants!

We headed out on the town again afterwards to complete a scavenger hunt. Thank you Molly for keeping up with the heart.
