For our dear friend Kristen's bachelorette party, her Maid of Honor, Natalie, Brittany, and I surprised her with a trip to Guerneville on the Russian River. Kristen lives in North Carolina so she came out just for this (as well as her bridal shower in Concord on Sunday!), and she was so excited to just spend a weekend with friends and let the surprises roll in. The first surprise was that Amanda flew out from Chicago for the weekend! Check out the unveiling:
We had a great time with the details that would make her feel extra special, including hanging photos of her with all of us over the years around the house.
Natalie, Emma, Ari, Kristen, Brittany, and Amanda,
enjoying the finest Costco has to offer!
I swear the trip was in California and not Bali, but who can tell?
The whole gang!
And sporting them for our night out on the town!
Bride and MoH!

The sweet suite: 5/8 girls from our freshman dorm at UCSD!
We missed you, Pree!
"Make a funny face" apparently means "look up and to the side" to everyone pictured above.
Pat's was a dive bar that was filled with some of the most interesting, persuadable people we've ever met. We kicked off a game of truth or dare, and I had brought several prompts for the girls to choose from. Kristen's first dare set the tone for the night when she got this guy to happily take his shirt off for us.
Kristen and Lucky
(I think his boxers are tucked in his pocket)
Oh, what a night. #guernvegas
Kristen, we all love you so much and had such an epic weekend celebrating you. Can't wait for June when we all get to be a part of your and Daniel's celebration of love!
