Carlton Landing Bachelorette Party at Lake Eufaula


This weekend was a special one – it was my best friend’s bachelorette party! Claire and Sam have been together for nine years this May and I’ve the honor of watching their relationship grow for 8 of those years!! That is insane to think about!! You can catch the story of their relationship and proposal here!

We spent the weekend at Carlton Landing (Lake Eufaula) celebrating Claire. It involved A LOT of eating (way too much food), hanging out on the couch playing games and chatting, scootering (my personal favorite, until mine died!), walking around the neighborhood, sitting on the porch, and taking pictures! While the sun didn’t decide to make an appearance until late Saturday afternoon, we made the most of the cooler temperatures and were outside as much as possible! One of the highlights for all of us I think was when Claire’s aunt, uncle, and mom stopped by to prepare breakfast for us on Saturday! I don’t think I’ve ever had waffles as delicious as the ones they made for us and it was a huge treat!!

Carlton Landing is beautiful and definitely somewhere I hope to return to one day! It’s modeled after the Seaside, FL community – lots of pastel and cute porches, easily walkable, homes full of character and charm, beautiful landscaping, and kind people! I know Oklahoma is small, but it was hilarious to me how small it really felt after we ran into 4 or 5 different groups of people who knew someone in the bridal party as we were walking to dinner or out playing bocce ball! Definitely a social neighborhood and a unique lake destination! It was perfect for a bachelorette weekend!!

We can’t wait to be by your side on your wedding day, CP!!!
