Mood Board Monday

Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing long Fourth of July weekend! It’s always one of my favorite weekends of the year and this year was no exception. Even though we’ve all got the Monday blues, I’m already looking forward to this upcoming weekend — the bachelorette festivities in celebration of my soon-to-be sister-in-law!

Today’s mood board is in honor of all my best girlfriends and bachelorettes past. Lots of amazing memories with these ladies — and can’t wait to make more! Bachelorette weekends have come to be favorites, as I truly cherish the quality time spent with dear friends.

Happy Bachelorette Anniversary Katie!

If you know me well, you know I’m pretty much obsessed with Kate Middleton and the Royal Family. So don’t think it went unnoticed that yesterday was the three-year anniversary of the Royal Wedding. 3 years?! I seriously don’t know where time goes. Because as much as I swooned over that gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown, the Royal Wedding will always remind me of my dear friend, Katie’s bachelorette weekend.

It was a weekend filled with wine tasting, pretty vineyards, late-night dance parties, laughs, tears – and more wine. The first bachelorette party of my close-knit high school friends, which still remains one of my favorite weekends with them because I think it brought us all even closer. We bonded. We cried. I told you there were tears — let’s just say it was the wine.

Happy Bachelorette Anniversary Katie — Here’s a trip down memory lane…

Bachelorette parties haven’t changed too much in three years. Recipe for a successful bachelorette party = Hot pink bride paraphernalia  + wine + good tunes + best friends (and probably some pizza) 😉 Love you, girls!!

And just for fun…

Fancy Friday @ Vineyard 29

Vineyard 29

When I saw this image on Pinterest earlier this week, I got giddy. I knew something exciting would be coming once I clicked through to Well+Good – and boy, was I right. A barre class followed by a vineyard tour in Napa Valley?! Where can I sign up? Vineyard 29 that’s where. They call their program “Pilates Essentials” – which has all the essentials for the perfect bachelorette party. The package includes a pilates or barre class, tour, spa lunch and a case of wine (more info here) – Seriously, why didn’t I know about this before my bachelorette party?!

Someone who lives closer to California than me, please go and report back. Until then, have a great weekend my loves!
