Hilton Head Day 1

Scroll through to see what I wore on the plane. 

If you were following along on Instagram, then you know I was in Hilton Head for a few days through the weekend! I met up with some of my blogger girlfriends (Katie, Krista, Danielle, Sarah and Caitlin) and needless to say, it was an absolutely incredible weekend. I have to hand it to Krista and the Sonesta Resort at Hilton Head-- they planned such an epic weekend, it's going to be hard to ever top! 

For Hilton Head being an island, it was still pretty easy to get to... I flew into Charlotte and then hopped on a tiny little plane that took about 45 minutes to land in HHI. It was really nice because Sarah and I ended up meeting in Charlotte and getting on the small plane together! It took me all of 5 seconds to love Hilton Head, considering I stepped off the plane and it was about 60 degrees and no need for a coat! 

As soon as I got there, I checked in and caught up with the girls! We also checked out the wonderful gift bags. 

Scroll through to check out what all was included. It was like Christmas morning! 

Then, the amazing crew at Sonesta delivered chocolate covered everything to our room... even chocolate covered bacon (omg so good) and some bubbly. It was the perfect time to catch up with the girls some more and plan out our night and talk about the festivities for the weekend, not to mention our beautiful rooms. The resort had just recently gone under major renovations so there was a great, fresh, boutique, luxury vibe to the resort. 

Since it was the first night, we decided to keep things relaxed and opted for dinner at Heyward's. I not only had incredible salmon by Chef Nelly B, but also discovered a new favorite pinot noir, Meiomi, which was recommended by the staff and certainly a great recommendation. We also shared dessert. Something I loved about this group of girls is that they love eating and trying different foods as much as I do!

After our amazing meal, we headed back up to our room and had more girl time. We also enjoyed more wine thanks to Seven Daughters. Then we all hit our beds and passed out. The beds were beyond comfortable... beds at hotels are definitely a deal maker or breaker for me and these were dreamy. 

The next morning, we woke up and all goofed around because we were so excited to see the sun from our balconies! The weather forecast had predicted rain, so the sun was very welcome! Stay tuned for day 2 recap! A big thanks to the Sonesta Resort for having all of us, I feel so thankful to have had such a fun weekend with such great girls! Have a fabulous day!

Meiomi is great stuff! My other favorite Pinot Noirs are by Ken Wright and Penner-Ash (2011 or 2012). Penner-Ash is a bit pricey, but so so worth it.
