So, as the Bride and her ladies were having a blast in Charlotte, our little hometown was getting completely BASHED by Hurricane Irene. The whole time we shopped in the sunshine with clear skies we kept getting calls from our mama's and friends about how bad the weather was at home. It was insane. One of us would yell out "My grandma has water coming out of her ceiling fan light fixture!" (that was me) and another would scream "Eric said that most of Greenville is flooded!"
But us, on the other hand? Happily spending some $$$ at both Northlake and Southpark Malls in Charlotte. We shopped all day Saturday, following a delicious trip to Brueger's Bagel for breakfast and some crazy traffic then returned to the room for some pre-gaming, primping and watching "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" (that's a whole other blog post to come soon).

|in order to get that shot above with me in it I had to j-rig the above tower to put the camera on and set the timer... ghetto.|

|can we pause a moment and comment on how awesome Hope's cleavage is in this picture?|
|But the Bachelor was no fun and was obviously terrified of his soon-to-be wife because he rolled his eyes when I was trying to take this picture. Wuss.|
