Bachelorette Party!

I have a problem:
I'm afraid my wedding isn't going to be as much fun as my bachelorette party. 
I guess that's a good problem to have...right?

I had the BEST weekend in Atlantic City with a fantastic group of friends! My weekend began on Friday after work when Kate treated me to martinis and a manicure/pedicure at Dashing Diva! It was great to catch up with her here because we knew we wouldn't get a whole lot of personal catch up time in Atlantic City.
I woke up bright and early on Saturday morning because I was so excited to get going to Atlantic City. Maria, Kerry, and Corinne met up at my place at 10:30. We had planned on eating bagels and hitting the road, but while I was getting ready downstairs....Chris had run out to the store to get some food and had decided to make us breakfast! James (who was there to drop Maria off) and him ended up making us eggs and bacon, it was such a nice treat!
 Then we packed Corinne's car to the brim. Luckily, the guys helped again!
I said goodbye to my man for the weekend...
and we were off!!
We arrived at the Borgata Hotel a little before 3:00pm. We couldn't check in until 4:00 so we left all our stuff (and there was a LOT of stuff) with the bellhop while we went to go eat some lunch.
The whole gang with Mr. Bellhop Man!
After lunch we were able to check into our room so we headed upstairs to the glorious-ness that is the Fiore Suite at the Borgata! This was the view:

We (read: my friends) all got right to work unpacking, organizing, and situating our room so that it was the ultimate bachelorette pad! We had a quick toast to our evening and then I was placed in a chair while I opened some lovely giffties:

Sexy Little Bride
After that, we had a few more hours before we had to get ready for dinner so we played some games, and really just talked, laughed, and took lots of pictures!

I was having so much fun just hanging out in the room, I honestly didn't even want to leave to go to dinner...but you know...eating, blah blah blah.... I think we waited until the last possible minute to start getting ready because we lost track of time! Luckily, I had my own personal makeup artist...Bridesmaid Mandy!
And then Smith curled my hair for me, (after I burned myself on Maria's crazy, awesome curling iron!) We were a little rushed, but we still left the hotel room on time, and all looking fabulous! We ate at Seablue restaurant.
After dinner we headed to the nightclub MIXX where we had VIP bottle service set up for us. This was soooooooo worth it. We had our own sectioned off area, with a guard to make sure that no one entered our area, we overlooked the dance floor, and we never had to leave to go over to the bar.
Our section-guard Erik!
Bottle service!
 The club had an aerialist performing over the dance floor!
I really don't have much else to say about the night except that it was a fantastic, amazingly fun night...I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
With Bridesmaid Smith!
Mandy and Kate!
Maria and Kerry
Maria, Ben and Mandy
We got back into the room around 4:30am. Some went to bed, some stayed up, I smashed a pinata Mandy had given me earlier (and a tootsie roll hit my sister in the head while she was sleeping), and our only true casualty was Christina, who stubbed her toe so hard it may be broken!! Never a dull moment with us...

The next morning we had about an hour and half to clean up, change, and pack up our stuff before we had to check-out. There are zero pictures of the next day due to the fact we all pretty much were exhausted annnd I was given strict orders NOT to take any pictures. Yea..being friends with me, you know that sometimes I need to be told not to take pictures. I left very sad that the weekend was over, but I am so so so happy and it will be a night that I'll always remember!

Thank you so much to my friends who made me feel so special this weekend!
I still can't believe I've had my bachelorette party!! Next up: WEDDING!
