Once upon a time, a group of chicks from the east coast decided to gather for a Girls Weekend Away. They had common interests, common experiences and most importantly, bottles of good wine and great senses of humor.
On Friday night all the girls gathered at Chez Drescher, a beautiful home in Fort Mill SC. Girls from New Jersey, Florida, Ohio and all over of NC/ SC gathered for this prestigious occasion. The Friday night kickoff was a wine tasting by a professional consultant---followed by wine guzzling by unprofessional hoochies.
The evening started off calm. After all, these ladies are all professionals in the corporate world, right?
As the evening progressed and the wine flowed freely....well....nevermind. I can't even begin to describe it or show most of the pictures.....
The next morning, the New Jersey princess made a wonderful blueberry coffee cake despite being a wee hung-over. Or maybe a lot hung-over. Most guests; however, chose a breakfast of the medicinal variety....
P.S. Did I mention that Chez Drescher was in a subdivision built on the old PTL land? Her neighborhood still has the old amusement park castles from Jim and Tammy Baker-land.
Late morning/early afternoon was devoted to the fabulous Mrs. Sherry and her extraordinary Mary Kay prowess. She gave all of us facials, hand treatments, lip treatments and makeovers. I think she used an entire jar of anti-puffy eye stuffs on our hung-over eyes !
Later that evening, we had the Murder Mystery Dinner Party. Everyone dressed their parts and stayed in character all evening. It was fabulous and the dinner was wonderful! There was a model, rap star, fortune teller, rich heiress, sports star, beauty queen, musician, and a gothic artist. I was the Goth Girl and actually won for best costume!
The dinner party was a riot--once the murder happened and the clues were flying, everyone was glued to the story!
After the murder mystery, the party continued on with general craziness and fun. Here are some of the pictures safe to share. I love how the girls play Guitar Hero in stilettos. We really are divas, huh?
We left on Sunday tired, hung-over, loaded up with wonderful gifts from each other--and we were incredibly happy. That was the point of the entire weekend: to laugh and reflect on how we really are living happily ever after.
