Busy Weekend, Bad Blogger ;)

Hi guys! Hope you had a nice weekend. Ours was great but very busy and filled with too much travel! I didn't do a very good job of taking pictures this weekend (sorry). Here is a quick/ general recap. Note: I am not in any way discussing all of my meals...just the ones I happened to take pictures of.



Friday:

After pump, I showered up and then we headed to the airport. I enjoyed a luna and Health magazine while we waited for our flight. I'm not a HUGE Luna fan, but this one was yummy! It actually tastes a lot like those reduced fat lemon girl scout cookies they had a few years back.



The wedding we were attending was at the Jersey shore. We flew into Philly and drove to the rehearsal. Here is a picture of Josh and I looking super tired at the rehearsal dinner:


Saturday:

The next morning, I woke up extra early. The bed at the hotel was pretty uncomfortable and the hotel was in a noisy local....so sleep wasn't really happening. I laced up my shoes and went for a 4.6 mile run. Afterwards, I enjoyed a lara and some WaWa coffee (I miss Wawa!!). I rarely eat bars at home, but they are PERFECT when you're traveling:



It was super rainy the majority of the weekend, but cleared up right after the wedding (great for the wedding pics!). Here is a cute picture of the couple right after the ceremony:




And a picture of me and Josh (Josh was in the wedding):

The reception was held at a country club and was absolutely beautiful! The veggie meal was HUGE and was the traditional pasta. I ate about 1/8 of this and Josh managed to eat almost the whole rest of the plate along with his crab cake dinner :

A few more random pics- Josh and his friend R:

Me and some of the girls. It was SO cold in the banquet hall, I wore Josh's jacket the majority of the night....it may have been a little large on me ;)



Overall, the night was a blast! After the reception, we hung out at the hotel bar for a while. I'm not a drinker, so I stuck to water, but it was a blast :). After lots more travel, we arrived home around 5 pm tonight. I threw some clothes in the wash and headed to the food store. Since then, I have been non stop! I did lots of laundry, gave Frank a bath, helped Josh cut his hair, and made din din. Josh got whole wheat tortellini with turkey sauce:

I was pasta-ed out and made myself a giant salad with a bowl of cantaloupe and some nut butter (how I missed you cantaloupe!!):






Josh and I are about to watch Entourage and then pass out! I am hoping I get to work from home tomorrow (fingers crossed) because my tummy is sort of up in arms :(.


What are you looking forward to this week? My birthday is Wednesday...so I'm looking forward to that! I will be 27 (when did that happen????).

CaSaundraLeigh said...

Sounds like a mighty busy,but fun weekend!! You and Josh always looks so happy--love it!!

I normally don't eat a lot of bars either, except now to bring for a college snack and when I travel. But Luna's always tasted kinda chemical-like to me. :-(

Hope your week(and bday!) turn out great!

Holly said...

Yay!! Happy early Birthday!! Since your b-day is on a Wednesday you should just proclaim a Birthday week. Right??

Hey girl! I totally agree with you about bars/traveling - they really stretch out times between meals when they are outta our control! Looks like you had a fun weekend and I hope you are lookin' forward to your bday this week :)

Dawn said...

I am so with you on the hotel beds. UGH. I hate them. I love going on vacation, but hate it when I have uncomfy beds or a stinky hotel room.
So you saw all the crazy rains we had? It was raining buckets here on cape cod--buckets!!!

Paige@ Running Around Normal said...

Aww sounds like a great wedding! You guys both looked great :) And Josh's tortellini looks fabulous.
