Girls Lake Weekend!

This past weekend, my bestie Emily hosted her 8th annual girls trip!  We ventured to Hot Springs, AR to visit her family lake house at Lake Hamilton Thursday after work.  Our girls trips are always a blast, and this one did not disappoint :)  One of my favorite part of girls weekend is surrounding myself with fabulous women....our group has a CPA, a couple marketing gurus, an MBA graduate, a bilingual businesswoman, a sweetheart teacher and one hot momma (what a group!?!?) Here is a rundown of our weekend...

Friday Fun on the Lake and
Polar Bear Club at the Dam
We always spend most of the day on the lake, and one of our family traditions is to jump in the lake near the dam.  The water near the dam is always around 50 degrees!  We have all jumped in, but this year there were only 4 brave souls. We decorated coozies Thursday night with foam markers (who knew?) They worked wonders, so next time you are decorating a foam visor or foam crown, grab some foam markers (you heard it here first ;)


Friday Night Trip to Sam's Pizza and Smyly's
Sam's Pizza is an all time favorite.  They have almost world famous pies along with fried pickles and jalapeno poppers.  Smylies is another must do.  We have been hittin' up Smyly's since we were 21, and always have to go back to reminisce about our "wild" days :)  We may not be the life of the party anymore, but it sure is fun to people watch! 

Saturday NEON day at the Lake 
Last year we tried a theme day, Red, White and Blue.  This year we embraced the current trend of neon!  Complete with neon coozies, bikinis, sunglasses and bracelets, we were the brightest boat of girls on the lake.

Thank you Emily for hosting another infamous girls lake trip!  It is always such a treat to catch up with our crew and catch some rays. 

Counting down til next year,


  1. Such parties and outings with friends are amazing to have some good time and enjoy. I remember, last year’s party that we had at best party venue New York. It was such a great fun for all of us, I again what to plan for a party like that.
