Hello, lovely! I hope you are doing well. Holy COW! My iFundWomen campaign is still going on, I cannot thank you enough for the out poor of love & support. Just shy of a month ago my friends Sarah & Kevin got married & it was such a pleasure throughout the entire process to be by their sides. I did an instagram poll to see if you would be interested in me given you the skinny on what we did for Sarah's bachelorette & you said heck yes! So here it is the post is finally here! I was maid of honor & like I've said before I'm a planner so I thrived planning this. There were 10 ladies in total including the bride.
Why Portland, ME? Well the bride wanted to do something adventurous that shes never done before & she's really into country. I thought Portland was perfect because Bonfire the country bar is right downtown & we could go zip lining! We went the second weekend in May. The weather was beautiful!
It was a Friday night to Sunday afternoon. Another friend & I went up early to eat at some of our favorite places before checking in to our air b & b. We hit up Eventide the oyster bar for a oysters & rose. Then we went right up the street to Duck Fat for poutine. My inner fat kid was in heaven. After we got our food fix we checked into our air b & b & decorated! The location of our accommodations was perfect! It was steps away from back cove which we took a run on Saturday morning. It was about a 5 minute uber from downtown.
Friday night kind of just hung at the house. I grilled for everyone, we played games, & had some beverages! It was fun getting to know the rest of the girls & the bride was able to chat with everyone & just have fun! We needed to rest up for our big adventuring day!
Saturday we woke up & went for a scenic run. I made some breakfast & packed sandwiches for the gals. Then we headed to Monkey Trunks in Saco, ME it was about a 25 minute drive from our air b&b. We did a zip lining course including some obstacles which we did in our bride tribe tanks which I got off etsy. We broke for lunch then conquered the rock wall & adventures course! We headed back to the house to rest up for dinner with Holy Doughnuts in hand. After getting ready we headed to David's restaurant for dinner. The bride has a specific pallet & we had a gluten allergy in the group, David's offered something for everyone! (Not to mention they give you these amazing garlic bread knots prior to your meal) After dinner we went to Blyth & Burrows for a drink & ended the night at Bonfire. Bonfire is perfect for the country lover in their life! There are seats made of horse saddles & porch swings. The drinks are served in red solo cups & there is Nintendo for playing!
It was all and all a really fun weekend! I would highly recommend Portland, ME for a bachelorette, girls trip, or a trip with your guy! Well dolls I hope you have a great weekend!
