IDEA BlogFest & a Big Bear Bachelorette
You know those kind of vacations where you need another vacation to recover from your vacation?
My visit to Big Bear Lake this weekend was that kind of trip.
I headed up there on Friday to celebrate my friend Sarah‘s Big Bear Bachelorette Party.
I loved that she picked such a unique location for her “last fling before the ring.” Big Bear is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect spot to unwind and detach from the chaos of the city.
Don’t get me wrong though, this was a Bachelorette party and despite the serene spot, things got wild as anticipated. Let’s just say we all felt a little shipwrecked by the end of it.
Although I am super tired still and may need an extra cup of coffee this morning, I had such a blast with this amazing group of women and am feeling pretty marvelous none the less.
My fun-filled weekend was just the icing on the cake though. Last week was full of exciting experiences, including my first time speaking as a panelist at the IDEA World Fitness BlogFest.
In the interest of avoiding too much writing this morning — which would use up all of the brain power I have left at the moment — I’m going to give you the abbreviated version in photos.

I’ve got my presenter badge to prove it.

Gotta get my healthy b-fast in, even on a Bachelorette. I whipped up this veggie scramble for a few of the girls.

And I didn’t say we were “shipwrecked” for no reason. That’s right, our fearless Captain for the weekend, Molly, hired a pirate instead of a stripper.
