This weekend I was invited to a bachelorette party up in Lake Norman — about 30 minutes north of Charlotte.
I got up early to get in my regular walk with Rascal. The rain from the night before made the sidewalks kind of yucky so by the time we got home, Rascal’s low-hanging belly was pretty gross.
After relaxing in their lounge for a while, we headed up to the bride-to-be’s soon-to-be mother-in-law’s house (gosh that’s a lot of hyphens). The party planners had a spread of delicious and light summery foods for our lunch. It was delicious and perfect for the warm weather!
We lounged a bit and played games. I watched some of the girls play on the trampoline and slide that floats out on the lake in front of the house. It looked like a lot of fun, but not something I should be doing pregnant.
Later that evening, two chefs came over for an in-house cooking class. It was a lot of fun!
The menu was mango and pineapple salsa, Vietnamese spring rolls, and fish and shrimp with veggies cooked in parchment paper. I’m especially happy that I learned to make Vietnamese spring rolls, which I absolutely adore. Can’t wait to make them again soon!
Here are a few more photos of the evening…
There was also some lingerie gifting and a yummy cake that isn’t appropriate for my PG rated blog.
The next morning we headed to the North Harbor Club for brunch, where I opted for something lunch-y — a crab cake topped salad. Delicious!
After brunch, I returned home to my two favorite guys. We did a little shopping and picked up Baby E’s bookcase among other things I need for an upcoming beach trip with my family next week. Speaking of which — didn’t Target and Walmart used to carry tons of lounge chairs for the beach? I can’t find a single one that I like! Urgh.
Brad cooked dinner, which was spaghetti squash, chicken, veggies, and his peanut sauce. Yum! And I ended the night with a coconut popsicle and a walk.
How was your weekend?
