Girls Weekend in Los Angeles

I am so fortunate to have several great girls in my life from college.  Each of them are unique, beautiful, and have so much to offer the world.  I have learned so much from them and getting to spend a weekend in Los Angeles catching up, laughing, and just having a good time was truly special.

One of my dearest friends, Adrianna, opened up her home (her amazing bf got a hotel) and let the girls take over.  There was make up, clothes, bedding, etc flooding her home.  It was so much fun.  We spent the first night catching up on each others lives.  It was 16 of us scattered along the couch and floor in her comfy living room talking until 4am.  We also welcomed our first baby {from friend Hailee}, Harper, into the group and took turns holding her.  The rest of the weekend was spent visiting Hailee's adorable abode in Manhattan Beach, at a nightclub in Venice Beach, and then Sunday was spent at brunch in Adrianna's beautiful backyard before our evening flights back to reality.

I feel so lucky and blessed to have all of these amazing ladies in my life.  What an incredible girls weekend - part one of many more reunions to come...

Here are some pictures of our Saturday night out and Sunday Brunch.  Pictures from our day in Manhattan Beach coming soon.

The beautiful backyard decor.  Adrianna's "Bubbly Bar"
 Baby Harper & her mama get serenaded in...
 The beautiful hostess and planner.

Combined on our cameras... we had more than 2,000 pictures.  Not sure who all of these photos belong to (several from Jenn) but we shared them all!

What a beautiful weekend... can't wait for our next one :)

What beautiful women you are. If you guys stick to this tradition yearly it will be such a blessing to you all. And as you grown in life with marriages, husbands and children it would be really cool to do a yearly vacation together. To see what I mean, hop on over to another blogger's site & look at the pictures she just posted of her & her friends annual vacation, this could be you guys!! :)
