My Bachelorette Weekend in Savannah

I just got back from a great weekend in Tybee Island / Savannah, GA for my bachelorette party!  I couldn’t have had more fun with everyone and appreciate the traveling that some did to get there.

Before we went out to the beach house, Lauren, Maggie and I grabbed lunch downtown at the Olde Pink House.  I got the fried chicken and mac n’ cheese and it was the perfect start to the weekend.  It wasn’t just a few pieces — literally the WHOLE chicken was fried. I left stuffed.

We rented a house on Tybee Island for the weekend which was perfect – seriously right on the beach, ahhhhh.  Friday night we made fajitas and margaritas at the house and hung out while everyone got there.  We made a variation of this chicken & quinoa fajita bowl recipe that was delicious.  It ended up raining Friday night, but the huge screened porch was perfect for us to eat and relax outside.  Thanks for the margarita recipe, Aunt Beth!

After finishing off all the margaritas, we headed toward the center of Tybee and bar hopped.  The night was complete with a dance circle & karaoke before going back to the house.

IMG_5068We were a little slow to move Saturday morning, but in the afternoon we headed downtown for the Savannah Slow Ride – which is basically a table that’s connected to bikes and you pedal around downtown stopping at bars for drinks.  The biking made us feel somewhat productive while enjoying some beers, and the weather couldn’t have been any better.  I think we all needed a little sweat!

After the biking we went back to the house to shower, relax, eat some appetizers on the top porch, and get ready for the night.

We had a late dinner reservation at Jazz’d back in downtown Savannah. They were one of few restaurants that could accommodate a group our size, but it was perfect.  The food was delicious, and the different tapas were perfect for the big group. Thanks to Meg, Kristen and Katie for sending us champagne — we missed you!

After dinner we headed to Savannah Smiles, the dueling piano bar (along with every other bachelorette party in Savannah).  Callee snagged us some great seats by the stage, and we enjoyed the live music.  At one point I was on stage with the 15 other bachelorettes (there were seriously SO many bachelorettes), but I was the only one with a captain’s hat, haha.

We ended the night at another bar next door and danced some more.  We even ran into another Charleston bachelorette party there too and saw Gibbon’s little sister.  I am seriously sore from all the dancing — quite the workout!

Sunday morning  it was back to Charleston, and I took a great nap while waiting on Hunter to get back from his bachelor party in Nashville.

THANK YOU to everyone who made the weekend so much fun!  I have the best friends and love you all so much!  Now we continue the countdown until May…
