Friday afternoon I was so pumped to hop on an airplane and fly to Baltimore to help my college bestie, Beebs, celebrate her bachelorette weekend! My plane departed at 4:10, and I was in B-more by 5:15...oh the fabulousness of flying!
I could totally write a super long post and tell you about ALL of the fun we had, but I figured we best just stick to the highlights!
Manicures & Movie
Beebs picked me up, and since the other girls weren't arriving until later we killed some time grabbing dinner and getting manicures...great way to kick off the weekend! I was in the mood to try a new color, and picked a mix between mint and seafoam green, and of course, totally forgot the actual name of the color! I think I kinda love it! Beebs tried a new orangey color, which was super cute too!
After our manicures, we picked up bridesmaid #2, Paige, from the airport! We literally booked it to the movie theater so that we could kill another 2 hours before picking up bridesmaid #3, Jill! We saw The Five Year Engagement, and I really liked it! I adore Emily Blunt (especially because she gets to be married to John Krasinski!).
On Saturday we all gathered at bridesmaid #4, Andrea's, house for a Cinco de Mayo-inspired lunch. Andrea is quite the hostess and had a yummy feast prepared for us! And, Beeb's sweet momma, Ms. Becky, sent us with her famous taco dip and a delicious strawberry shortcake trifle! Nom nom nom!
And so the weekend of eating began...
No explanation needed!

Dinner @ Linwoods
We were lucky enough to be able to have a meal at an incredible restaurant called Linwoods in a small town outside of Baltimore! Beeb's family had eaten there while tasting food for their wedding because they were using the place to cater their food, and 2 messed up steaks landed Beeb's with a complimentary meal for 8 guests! It was like a dream come true! We got to order anything we wanted, and it was all on the house! Not to mention, they were bringing us each out our own dessert sampler so that we could help Beebs pick the final desserts for her wedding!
|BBQ Pecan-Crusted Chicken w/ Sweet Potato mash and asparagus|
|Dessert Sampler-- Creme Brulee, Blueberry Cobbler, Cheesecake bite, and more!|
|We still ordered dessert off the regular menu! Probably the one and only meal in my life where I got to take a bite of almost every dessert on the menu! SO MUCH FUN!|

Hershey Spa Day
This was my favorite part of the entire trip! In Hershey, PA they have a spa at the Hotel Hershey where you can get all sorts of spa treatments with special twists, like the "cocoa massage" that I got! Not only are their spa treatments amazing, but they also have unlimited Hershey kisses, hot cocoa, Hershey chocolate chip muffins, and so much more! It was heavenly! We all got our treatments done and were able to relax in the sitting rooms or the sauna until our lunch at the Oasis, the spa restaurant! Hands down the best spa I've ever been to and the most fun atmosphere!

Beebs, I hope your weekend was super special! I love you, girl!
