Jill and Kim were the first to arrive last Thursday afternoon. We had some down time before dinner, so we sat around and caught up with one another for a while - oh, and I iced Kim! Jill has the picture for proof. Around 8 pm we headed to Crabdaddy's for dinner - we were by far the youngest people there. About mid way through our dinner we were all full because we had stuffed ourselves at the house with Chex Mix! We went back to the house and watched Project Runway, waiting on the girls from Atlanta to arrive. At approximately 12:45 AM, the girls finally got to the house! Even though it was late, we were all glad to finally be together.
Friday morning was nice and relaxing. We enjoyed our breakfast and coffee, sitting around the table just catching up, and then moving into the den to watch Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss! Around 12 PM we all changed clothes and headed to Red Fern Village to get lunch at Gnat's Landing, get manicures and pedicures, and browse in the cute shops. We then headed back to the house to get ready to go to dinner at Coastal Kitchen, and then out to Ziggy's! Here are a couple of pictures from the night:
Saturday morning we all woke up feeling a little "tired," so we all decided to go on a walk since it was so beautiful outside! (Kim decided it would be better to nap instead). We walked at least 4 miles, all the way from our house down Frederica past Sea Palms and back! When we got back we had a combination of appetizers and snacks for lunch. Afterwards, we carved pumpkins! Every year I am so impressed with everyones skills - they always turn out so good! After pumpkin carving we decided to go to the beach. It was too cold to be in our bathing suits, but how can you come to St. Simons without going to the beach?! We took some towels and the game Catch Phrase and had a great time!
Here are the pumpkins lit with candles that night:
For dinner on Saturday night we headed to Fancy Q! I am glad everyone enjoyed it as much as Johnathan and I do - its one of our favorite places! After dinner we decided to head back to Ziggy's since we had such a great time the night before:
We had such a great weekend - I can't wait for our Christmas exchange at the King's Farm and then planning for our next girls trip!
