Playing Catch-Up (Part III) - The Bachelorette Par-tay.

Myself and 8 of my girlfriends traveled down to Key West for a long weekend.  5 of us took the Key West Express (boat) down to the Keys and the other 3 flew in.  We stayed at the Casa Marina, a Waldorf Astoria property, and we had such a fun weekend! The hotel was great - it had 2 swimming pools and a private beach.  The first night, my BFF for-eva, Brittany, arranged for us to have dinner on the beach, it was so beautiful! Then we ventured out to a locals bar and we ended up taking over the music and the dance floor, it was such a fun night! Saturday we had lunch at Caroline's on Duval Street - there was a chicken that roamed around the entire time and caused a lot of havoc with the patrons, especially one of the girls on the trip (love ya, Mere!).  We then hit the Keno store for a little shopping.  Most of us were feeling a little rough from the night before, so headed back to the hotel for a little rest and relaxation.  Brittany and I headed to the hammocks on the beach and had such a relaxing time drinking some drinks and talking. Saturday night we headed to a tapas restaurant named Santiago's  Bordega - the food was amazing! After that we headed to The Green Parrot for some live music; unfortunately, the FSU game was on the TV at TGP and I ended up watching that and cursing at the tv,  more than I did enjoying the music - boo!  Finally, we ended up on Duval Street and did some bar hopping. Sunday we relaxed and headed back home. I had such a great time and was a perfect weekend to celebrate my upcoming nuptials! 
Here are a few pics from the weekend:
