A Vegas Bachelorette to Remember!
It doesn't get any more real than a bachelorette party in Vegas! When my friend, Amanda, announced she'd be gathering a group of ladies for a weekend of bachelorette fun in Sin City I started researching flight options! This wasn't a party I wanted to miss!
Others had been there for a day or so when I joined in the fun on Saturday morning at Amanda's lingerie shower. We had a lovely brunch spread with everything from bagels to fruit to bacon and eggs. It was a great atmosphere to get to know a few of the other ladies in attendance.
After a few fun games and showering the lovely bride-to-be with gifts, I tore into my Survival Kit and got myself ready for some fun in the sun at the pool. The Mandalay Bay boasts a lazy river and wave pool though our group found both to be a bit lacking. The lazy river was anything but lazy...the current in there was on point. And the wave pool managed to average one single wave every five minutes or so. However, we enjoyed snacks at our cabana and eventually made our way to the adult pool. The vibe here was a bit more relaxing with music and drinks. Unfortunately, my eyes are forever branded with some images I'd rather forget...and I'll just leave it at that.
After a brief romp in the adult pool, I made my way back up to the room to chow down on some pizza and begin getting ready for a night out on the town. While a group of ladies went with the Bachelorette to check out Brittany Spears up close and personal, the rest of us got rested up for Marquee. My roomie for the weekend and I headed over to the nightclub around midnight to meet up with the Brittany Spears crew. Marquee left much to be desired, but we made our own fun for awhile and got some photos before we peaced out to the casino for the rest of the night.
Brunch at Border Grill inside the massive Mandalay Bay came early the next morning, but thankfully they served some delicious juices. I recommend Berry Good - yum! The food was also tasty here. I had an early afternoon flight back to NYC so I was lucky enough to be able to spend some time with the bride-to-be after brunch before making my way to the airport.
Now, I can't wait for October when the last of the "old" girlfriends crew gets hitched!! It really has been one heck of a year for each of us!!
