Girls Getaway to New Buffalo, MI

A little while ago, two of my best girlfriends and I took an overnight getaway to New Buffalo, MI.  We met when we were all young, single and carefree.  Now, we’re all attached, two have kids and one moved away to SF. This trip was just about the three of us, catching up and being together, without boyfriends or husbands or babies. 

Saying bye to A, who wanted to try on my hat
Cute little lunch spot called Blue Plate!
Next, wine, beer, and spirits tasting at Round Barn Winery
Our suite at the Marina Grand. 
Bike rentals were free at the hotel!
We all hadn’t been on bikes in over 10 years but we went for it anyway and had a blast!
(on me: Forever21 romper, Balenciaga part time bag in Officier, Sue London ballet flats)
Can you believe she just had a baby 3 months ago?? Also, check out her Rebecca Minkoff Stud Rocker! Love!!
We tried to get massages but they were closed. :(
So, we just went back to our room and cracked open a Cab instead. :)
More vino on the terrace overlooking the marina. So beautiful!
Enjoying good food and more wine at Bentwood Tavern at our hotel

You guessed it! More wine & chitchat!
Bye New Buffalo!

  1. Tough one! Both are fun! This makes me want to blog about my weekend getaways in Stockholm w my friends- even though it was over a year ago!!

  2. Seems like you had a great time. Well, how could it not be nice when there is wine involved??

  3. That looks so fun! Ive got to plan a trip like that with my girlfriends!

  4. i think its good to get out awhile with the GFs as it’s good for the soul…you come back to your honey all refreshed and rejuvenated!

    great that you get to hang out with your friends!

  5. Love this post! Re-connecting with girlfriends is SO important :) And you girls look like you had a blast!

  8. Nothing is more fun then a girls outing, right? You ladies look like you had a blast, after marriage and kids, there’s still room for girls time out..

  9. Looks like you had an amazing time! I don’t know if I can choose between vacay with BF or GFs. They each have their pluses and minuses ;)

  10. Oh I love my husband, but right now I’m missing my besties so much that I would love a girly getaway somewhere. Anywhere would do. As long as I had them and some wine, it would be a great time!

  11. Love Love trips with the girls! I had all 8 girlfriends to my families lake place this summer. It was a blast and much needed! Now, we plan to do it every year. but I also love to go on trips with my husband they are both two different kinds of vacays. You know?
