Bachelorette in PTown
As you saw from my Instagram feed last weekend, my closest girlfriends whisked me away to Provincetown for my bachelorette. What I am most amazed about is that all 9 girls managed to keep mum about the destination. For weeks, they would try to throw me off with random (and inaccurate) 'clues' like, "Pack a going out outfit you don't mind getting wet." I must admit, I was getting quite frustrated since I am such a planner! The week of, a few of them even avoided talking to me for fear of inadvertently revealing the secret destination. I was pumped when my Fiance (who was part of the whole scheme) dropped my friend Steph and me off at the ferry terminal. P-Town, here we come! I couldn't have asked for a better weekend: perfect weather and plenty of pool time with some amazing friends. I am one lucky girl! I was quite relieved that they did heed my requests. The main one being: NO penis-parapaphenalia. Followed by no party bus. Instead, how cute were they finding me this awesome fascinator? They all wore pink mini tiaras or cowboy hats. LOVE!

If you find yourself in P-Town, here are a few recommendations from my weekend.
Dined: 1) Bubala's By The Bay: Great lobstah roll. Conveniently located across the street from the Marc by Marc Jacobs store. Obvi, made a pit stop after lunch; 2) Patio: Perfect spot for people watching and happy hour. I mean, $1 oysters, shrimp and meatballs? We were so in! 3) Edwige: A great brunch spot; so cute and cozy. A must! May I recommend the lobster benedict? 4) Saki: I thoroughly enjoyed the sushi.
Shopped: 1) Utilities: A lot of kitchen/house knick-knacks. You can find some cute P-Town souvenirs here that isn't kitschy; (2) Marine Specialties, Inc: Get ready for some sensory overload. From American Airlines dinner settings to gas masks, there is much to look at here. I always stop in and poke around when I am in town; and (3) Shirts N Stuff: In need of anything Cape Cod? Stop here on your way out of town to pick up some sweatshirts/tshirts/sweatpants (as seen below). You name it, they've go it.
