Hello!!! Long time no see! I just got back from a glorious weekend away with the girls.
The ride to the resort was BEAUTIFUL. I am always so amazed by the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. They are quite appropriately named, don’t you think? ;)
The weather was warm and the birds were singing, so I opened the sun roof, cranked up the tunes and sang all the way to the resort 😉
Once we checked in and unloaded the cars, the fun began!
We started with a little tasting on the back patio to help pick the wine that will be served at the reception.
Fed some baby deer who saw how much fun we were having and decided to try and crash our little shindig.
Look how close they came to us!
And got all dolled up for a dinner out. We did have some difficulty finding a restaurant that was worthy of our dolled-up-ness! Restaurants attached to ski rental areas/locker rooms were not exactly what we had in mind 😉
After much searching, we finally found a restaurant that sufficed. The food actually turned out rather tasty though the ambiance was not entirely classy (in case the fire extinguisher in the background didn’t give it away! ;)).
When we returned to the villa we had a surprise party waiting for the Bride to Be!
She received many gifts that will be helpful to her in her future marriage 😉
The next day we woke up and went to the spa, which for me, was the highlight of the weekend.
(The Bride to Be)
The spa was simply spa-tacular! ;) (I know, I know… sometimes I just can’t help myself.)
They gave us our very own room to use between services, and set up a table of goodies for us.
The chocolate covered strawberries were simply divine!
By the end of the day, we were refreshed, relaxed, and rejuvenated. There is simply no better way to be!
Although I was sad to have to leave, I was eager to get home and do a bit of spring cleaning.
Indulgence was the word of the weekend, but every single moment was well worth it. I couldn’t have asked for a better time with a more fun group of girls!
What is your favorite way to indulge and relax with friends?
