If people don’t know who Tori is by now, she’s my cousin but she is more like my sister! Tori and I have been super tight for as long as I can remember and I’ve always idolized and looked up to her. She is by far one of the kindest, most selfless people. Not only is she stunningly gorgeous on the inside but she is breathtaking on the outside too … and the crazy thing is she doesn’t recognize it, I’m always telling her “Look at me, and say … “I’m beautiful and hot” “LOL
When Tori turned 40 I knew I wanted to do something special for her but I can’t take all of the credit for this because her best friend, Marlo, was really adamant about doing something amazing for Tori too, turned out Marlo was pushing the gas pedal and I was steering the wheel! LOL.
When we were planning her birthday party we knew we wanted to do it in Whistler and I knew that I wanted it to memorable and special and based on how amazing out weekend was for Sam’s Bachelorette party, I KNEW there wasn’t a better place for all of us girls to stay than at The Four Seasons Resort in Whistler!The Four Seasons Resort really pulled out all of the stops! When we arrived we walked into a massive suite with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms (the more bathrooms for a girls trip, the better, am I right?! LOL), there were balloons and the most amazing appetizers waiting for us PLUS a bartender that greeted us with a cocktail. We couldn’t even believe our eyes. I’m so grateful to have a platform like this because it does give me some bonuses for sure but their customer service is seriously the best around and they pay attention to the smallest of details … I mean, even the appetizers that were waiting for us were vegetarian focused!
That night we went out for dinner at Sidecut and while it is a Steakhouse and Bar they had the best vegan options and great wine!! I remember us sitting around the table having dinner together, all of us girls, most of these ladies don’t ever take time for themselves (Tori included) so it was nice to see everyone really relax, laugh and just enjoy not cooking dinner! LOL!! After dinner, we were so exhausted and hit the sheets nice and early … these mama’s got a GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP!!! Eeeeppp!!!
The next morning we had brunch served in our room and it was OUT OF CONTROL! We had mimosas, coffee, bran muffins, breakfast burritos, yogurt parfaits, caesars, fruit, etc. You name it … we probably had it. LOL. We spent a good chunk of the morning catching up and indulging then little did the girls know … I had something in store for us that day.
I wanted to do something completely unexpected so we went on a RZR Tour, I booked it through The Adventure Group (TAG) Whistler … I was a bit worried about how 9 girls would react to this sort of thing but and it was so much F*CKING FUN!!! It was honestly the MOST fun we’ve all had in such a long time, I had a perma-grim on my face the whole time, we were driving through mud puddles, climbing up steep mountains (at one point the girls said I was on 3 wheels lol!) … we were all laughing so hard … it brought me back to the good ‘ol Peace River days!! Actually, a fun fact about Tori that most people wouldn’t know, is that she is a total ADRENALINE JUNKIE!! LOL!! She absolutely loves this sort of thing, she was even the first person to take me skydiving!! Don’t be fooled by her sweet nature … this girl has some balls!! LOL!!!
I mean … after an experience like that you have to balance it out with a little spa day right?? Just to get all of that mud off?? LOL!! Some of us girls went and got pedi’s and holy man … this was one of the best pedicure’s I’ve ever had … they actually lay you down on a bed for it!! Have you ever had a pedi laying down?? It’s a whole new level … I almost fell asleep!
This weekend was the perfect mix of fun, adventure, and relaxation. Not only was it was so much fun celebrating Tori but it was so nice to see every single one of us just live in the moment and soak it all up. I think it’s so important to get together with your girls and spoil yourself. If you are planning a Bachelorette party or just want to get away for the weekend I would highly recommend pooling your money together and experiencing this place … you can even bring your own food and beverages to save some money, we did this too!!
Actually, I think that every group of girls needs to do this … it’s so good for the heart and soul … so … I’ve teamed up with the Four Seasons Resort Whistler and they want to give away a two bedroom private residence for two nights (maximum 4 adults)!! This does have to be booked and used by November 23, 2017! Oh, and also … The Adventure Group will provide Superfly (which operates year-round) for 4 adults. If this sounds like something you would LOVE make sure to enter below and follow all of the steps! I also want to give a little shoutout to Landeau for the beautiful flower delivery ANNND they will ALSO be sending the winner of this giveaway some gorgeous flowers!! The winner will be randomly selected and announced on Saturday, October 28th!
Tori’s ACTUAL birthday is October 29th and we have a few more things in store for her … sssshhhhh …. it’s honestly so crazy that we are at this age now … I mean, I remember like it was yesterday when we were little girls running around, holding hands and exploring the backyard. Where did time go??
