IT’S LIKE WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S, BUT WITH ACTUAL BEARS

20170801_074027

We encountered a real bear on Saturday morning, as he ran into the woods!

This post is about my awesome bachelorette party weekend. There were tons of penis decorations, which I was fine with. I just didn’t want a REAL stripper, and thankfully there wasn’t one! The house we rented in the White Mountains of New Hampshire was awesome! It has 5 bedrooms and fire pit area outside. We did a lot of fun things. One of my favorites was decorating our sashes for a night in the town.

We spent the first day by the pool and did some light shopping. After I got back, my friends decorated the house and it looked awesome! We stayed by the fire that night, and we named our inflatable man Bernie. Thus began weekend at Bernie’s!

On Saturday, we were supposed to go do the ropes course and zip-lining. But a lot of us were feeling a bit under the weather, so we decorated our sashes and decided to the sky gondola ride at the ski resort. The ride involved getting into these pods that brought us up the mountain. Once we got to the top, there were a bunch of things to check out. Apparently there was a wedding happening at the ampitheater area, which looked seriously awesome! The only draw back to getting married up there, is your guests would need to take a 15 minute gondola ride up each way. My relatives would freak out. Anyway, the only thing I didn’t like was the caves. They looked more like rock formations, not caves. Also, too many freaking stairs. No thanks!

That night, we went out to dinner and annoyed the guests at a local Mexican restaurant. We got all decked out in our bachelorette swag and hit the mountain town. We brought Bernie along to the restaurant. He was a hoot! A kid at a neighboring table was fascinated with Bern-Man, they were the same height. When we told his parents his name is Bernie, they definitely picked up on the movie reference. SCORE!

After scaring away all the patrons at the restaurant, we went to a brewery/inn/bar. It was a happening place with an 80s cover band and good brews. I made some friends, and I may need a restraining order from this woman that was fine at first, but then wouldn’t leave me alone. But that’s a tale for another time. It was such a great weekend, and I love my friends for making this the best weekend ever. Now I’m aboard the struggle bus from being tired.

ACTUAL FOOTAGE OF ME ZIP-LINING

This will be me during the weekend

I am very excited/scared for my bachelorette party this weekend. We rented a big house in New Hampshire. We’re going to be doing some zip-lining and ropes course at a local ski area. It should be fun! I have never done any of these activities, so it should be interesting to say the least. I have no idea what else we are doing, but I’m sure it will be fun!

I’m going to make a video of the weekend to the Jersey Shore theme song. Gonna G-T-L ALL WEEKEND LONG! Actually, I won’t be. Nobody wants to go to the gym, go tanning, or do laundry during their bachelorette weekend. If those were my only options I’d go with laundry only. GOD I KNOW, I AM SO LAME.

I’ll have to remember to bring along my talking Pauly D Jersey Shore pen I bought at 2:30am at a 7/11 in Boston. This was several years back when the show was still on. I hope my pen still works! I made it a point to move with it, as I like to regale Andy with “CABS ARE HEAH!!” and the beloved, “T-SHIRT TIMEEEEE!”

Lord knows why that poor guys wants to marry me.

WEEKEND ADVENTURES!

It’s been very busy around recently, so I haven’t been able to carve out time to blog. But I’m back from my ski trip in NH and have loads of pictures! We stayed at a hotel in Franconia, which is in the White Mountains of NH. I haven’t been to that area in a while, since my friends and I used to camp up there in the summer. It’s really beautiful in that area, but it’s a bit of a drive to get up there. When we got there, we had a lunch at a cool spot called Mojo’s, which had really interesting decor. We also decided to visit North Conway to do some outlet shopping.

After some outlet shopping, we made our way back to the Loon Mountain area. Since it was dark out,  went to see the Ice Castle all lit-up. Neither of us realized the ice castle was going to be a “thing”, and we waited in line for an hour to get inside. Thankfully it was an almost-tolerable  temperature otherwise I wouldn’t have survived since I was wearing leggings. The line would have also been more tolerable if we weren’t stuck next to Debbie Downer from SNL! She spent the entire hour complaining about how cold she was to her boyfriend in line. It was so bad, that the woman also next to her was prepared to give Debbie her son’s hat in an attempt to shut her up. At least I wasn’t the only one annoyed with her, a woman was willing to sacrifice her son’s warmth to get this lady to shut her face! I wanted to tape the hat down her throat and possibly hold her face into a snow bank, but the line forked and we made sure she wasn’t near us. [/end near homicidal rage]

The ice castle was pretty awesome! They had a snow man inside that looked it was from the movie Frozen. The jury is still out if it was worth the line, and being stuck next to the most annoying woman in the world. But, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. The castle was created by freezing dripping water. The icicles were really pretty! They added color-changing LED lights so it changes colors at night. There were also slides and tunnels as well.

After the castle, we decided to thaw out and have some dinner. We then headed back to the hotel so we could squeeze in some swim time before the pool closed. That morning I had the best French Toast, ever! It was so yummy! 

NH8After breakfast we headed back out for some cross-country skiiing. I definitely fell a bunch of times because the terrain was icy and some of the slopes were blind and involved being able to turn fast. I was not experienced enough to handle some parts of the trails, but overall I think I did a good job! I mean, I didn’t break anything or go hurling off a cliff into a freezing river, so that’s a win.
