Bachelorette Weekend

Despite the fact that Sheila's bachelorette weekend was almost a month ago... I'm finally getting a chance to sit down and blog about it today! 5 days before her wedding. Yes, 5 days!!! It's wedding week! :) Exciting and panic-inducing all at once... more for her than for me, obviously. And more exciting than panic-y, (maybe not so) obviously.

For the bachelorette weekend we headed a couple hours north up to the Blue Ridge mountains in North Georgia for a weekend of junking antiquing, window shopping, and cozying up in a quaint little cabin with lots of great food. It was so Sheila's style, and a weekend unplugged from technology was good for everyone! The rain wasn't going to stop us from having fun...... until it caused us to get stuck in the mud trying to leave Sunday morning! A dozen phone calls, 2 1/2 hours, and 3 men (2 from a tow company, 1 a nearby neighbor) later - we finally got un-stuck and were on our way back to the city!
Craziest little "antique" shop

Cars in the corn field haha
Blue Ridge was sooo adorable ~ but a word of caution: before you book a cabin from a private owner (, etc.) make sure you read the reviews! If there aren't any reviews, I'd choose another rental. The cabin we stayed in was ADORABLE. But it was very seriously in the middle of a corn field. We had no cell service, no road to travel in and out on, and if there had been an emergency (keep in mind we were with a 2-year-old and her 37-week-pregnant mother!) we were totally stuck due to the rain. The rental site listing was a bit deceiving to say the least! Luckily, it wasn't a big issue once we arrived - we didn't plan on leaving until we headed home Sunday anyways - but I think we learned a good lesson about trusting online ads for the next time we want a weekend get-away!

Sheila's showers, bachelorette party, and bridesmaid brunch are all over. The only thing left to do this week is beautify, rehearse, and WATCH HER WALK DOWN THAT AISLE!!! So. crazy. It seemed like the day would never come and now........ its almost here!!! :) Can't wait!
