Cottaging

This past week I packed up my laziest clothing, said "Sayonara!" to my office early and headed out with my friend for a 7 hour drive to a cottage! Why so far for a weekend? It was our friend's bachelorette party!  All three of us used to live together in University so we had to be there to celebrate her last days as a single lady!

The drive out was fairly uneventful. It was a beautiful day, but we only stopped to grab some grub and put gas in the car- our goal was to make it there by 9pm! We did keep an eye out for the Big Apple, because we had heard there was now a face painted on it! True fact- when I was a kid I thought people going to "The Big Apple" were literally going to get some pie at this place. Didn't know about New York sharing the name (though this apple is better).



The most eventful part of the drive was when we saw this deer on the road! We were almost there and so focused on our 9pm arrival goal and then all of a sudden we saw this deer at the top of the hill, surrounded by the sunset. It came from nowhere!

We made it by 9pm! Go us! We spent Friday night being classy.

The Saturday was spent lying in the sun on the dock! I also barbequed for the first time in my life (I know- that is sad). It went well and no one got food poisoning!

I did not get into the water at all either. It is June...I just don't trust Canadian lakes not to freeze off my butt this early in the season.











Saturday night we had a great party for the bride- lots of food and games including Kiss the Stud (poster on the wall you had to kiss blindfolded), Guess the Panties (we all brought in a pair that best represented us and the bride had to guess whose was whose), charades, and the Newlywed Game (bride has to guess the answers the groom gave about their relationship).

All in all it was a great weekend and I was so glad to get out of the city and into some fresh air, if only for a day! Thank you so much to the girls for arranging everything and inviting me!! I can't wait to see everyone again at her wedding!
