|I think this might have been the last time the three of us were together before the NQBW.|
So, back when the lovely Sarah asked me to be her Maid of Honor, a plan was created. Kelly and I wanted to do something for her as a sort of bachelorette party, but with Sarah in Utah…and Utah being not the most exciting place for a bachelorette weekend…and Kelly and me in NYC, we had to figure out what to do. So we listed the help of Sarah’s soon-to-be husband. Mike was a total doll about the whole thing. He helped us figure it out.
The plan: surprise Sarah with a weekend in New York. We coordinated dates. We figured out what Mike would tell Sarah and how we were going to keep it a surprise. It was PERFECT!
And then Sarah and Mike eloped a week before the bachelorette weekend. And then the plan was complicated by Mike’s work and an unplanned trip to California. And the surprise was no longer a surprise. That said, the weekend was still amazing…and probably much more enjoyable for Sarah since she was able to pack for NYC weather (which did not cooperate) as opposed to CA weather.

So, even though the surprise was no longer a surprise, the weekend was so fun! We shopped. We ate. We lounged. We laughed. We went to a show (Follies…we do not recommend it). We ate some more. We slept. We watched Bridesmaids. We got pedicures. We brunched. We froze a little in the crazy weather. It had been way too long since the three of us had been together. Way. Too. Long. No boyfriends. No husbands. Just the girls. Not something any of us wants to have all the time, but it was fun for a weekend (especially for the single girl–me).
I’m so happy for Sarah and Mike and am so glad she married someone who will help us plan surprise weekends, even if the plan didn’t work out exactly as planned! And I can’t wait to party it up on New Year’s for their not-quite-wedding-reception.
