On June 17th I flew to Michigan for Elizabeth's batchelorette party! Her wedding date was the 24th so I got to stay with my in law's for over a week and enjoy all of the wedding planning!
Here is a little glimpse of my tip!
We started out the batchelorette party with some mani's and pedi's and some of the most amazing cupcakes from Bake N Cakes - the strawberry shortcake was my favorite...I think Elizabeth was enjoying the German Chocolate Fudge!
Amanda (my sister n law - Brian's brother David's wife), Elizabeth (Brian's baby sister), and Courtney (one of Elizabeth's friends and bridesmaid):
Moving on to DSW on the hunt for honeymoon shoes!

Our bride to be decided to order her "man" a shot from the bar...you would have thought they were the only two in the restaurant!
The sushi the groom sent the bride in return...yummmm!

sexy bacon with cucumber, asparagus,
crab, tempura crunchy, soy paper,

Then we ended up going to see Bridesmaids in Theaters @ midnight...this granny was tired!!!
The next morning we went to the all organic
Sawyer's Gourmet Pancake House...where we you know just bumped into Michigan's previous Governor Jennifer Granholm. Amanda totally spoke with her - cool!

Later in the week we went to the final dress fitting and Elizabeth decided to try on a few other accessories!
