Bridal Showers Bring May Flowers

I am still having girlfriend withdrawals nearly two weeks after our brief reunion in South Carolina.  I was thrilled to spend the weekend in DeBordieu for an unforgettable Bachelorette Party honoring the Bride-To-Be, Mary Loyal.  Eight of the 10 bridesmaids were in attendance, and considering 7 of us were Wofford alums, I felt like I was back in Terrier-land! On Friday night, we had a very enjoyable dinner at Frank's Outback.  Among the meal's many memorable moments was the presentation of Tippins' Jumbo Sweet Potato Scallop.  Talk about an oxymoron... We then piled into the party bus and headed out on the town.

Next, we danced and sang the night away at Pawley's Island's local dive.  The bar was small which was advantageous to us because we received star treatment.  The band was eager to join the BM's in our quest to make Mary Loyal's night memorable.  Everyone took their turn dancing or singing on stage, but ML's rendition of  Matchbox 20's "3AM" was the ultimate show stopper.  We ended the night back at the house with an impromptu dance party.  We finally turned in our dancing shoes sometime before dawn.

Dancing...I think?
The girls!
The beautiful bride takes center stage!
Looks like a widespread case of Bieber Fever

Saturday was spent relaxing on the porch chatting about the big day.  With a looming thunderstorm, we decided to eat dinner at the house.  Next was the lingerie shower and of course, game time.  We played "Fish Bowl", a combination of charades, Cranium and Taboo.  We all were in stitches, and I have not laughed so hard in a long time.

It was the perfect ending to a perfect weekend.  The next time we will all be together will be for....THE WEDDING!

So happy for the Bride :)
