Ashley’s Bachelorette Recap

I got this text last night, (ahem BB and Caroline) and figured I needed to update y’all. 
To say I have been busy would be an understatement. I got back from Florida on Monday, and went straight to full time single momma for the week. The babies and I have been playing with puppies, getting pedicures, and fighting over movies and the last piece of my Panera. Standard. 😉 

OK so back to update: Ashley’s bachelorette party. Amazing. Y’all know we go big or go bigger for bachelorette parties, and this one was no different, and simply fantastic. 13 of us spent the long weekend in Florida at Ashley’s home, and SURPRISE lucky you, I made a little video to capture our weekend. 
I seriously love my friends so much. I’ve said it before, but I am SO lucky to have the girlfriends that I have, and I cherish every minute that we get together!! We had girls flying in from all over to celebrate with our little bridey, and it is SO SO cool how close we have all remained six years out of college! 
Listen up you college babies– you cherish those friendships and you hold on to them! These are your friends for LIFE! I have no doubt we will still be doing this in 20 years. 😉 
Hope you like! 
Ashley, I cannot wait to do it all again and celebrate this weekend with you when you get MARRIED!! You are going to be absolutely STUNNING my dear. Scott, if you are reading (which I doubt you are!) I am so glad you found, and fell in love with  my sweet friend Ashley!! You two deserve so much happiness!
Cheers to wedding weekend!!!!
