Bridal Parties Bonanza

Heyyyy guys! Having a great weekend so far? There’s still a bit left – soak it up! 🙂

Mine went by at lightening speed. It was pretty packed from Friday afternoon until today. Instead of making this post a mega post, I’ll tell you about it in sum.

Saturday after my morning client, I was a mess trying to leave in time. Whirling around town running last minute errands, and then again around my own house trying to get everything together, I made it out of the house and into town an hour later than I had planned. Not bad by my standards. It was one of my BFF’s bridal shower and bachelorette party who I’m a matron of honor for, and I knew I wouldn’t be driving home that night.

I only had a 45 minute trip but as always, I packed road fuel:


The usual suspects (ice water, green monster, granola bar) plus an iced coffee.

When I made it to my parents’ house, I made a veggie sandwich on whole wheat, because as a vegetarian, I never know if I’ll be able to eat at parties:


I also did some yard yoga, because that’s how I roll:

Alas, there was plenty of veggie-friendly fare at the shower, so I ate a second lunch. That’s also how I roll 😉


Great set up!


The shower was lovely, and I think everyone had a great time. I know Jessica did – and she got a lot of wonderful things:)


After presents were opened and we chatted a bit more, it was time for the inevitable group pictures.

Then we took it outdoors a bit later before heading out for the bachelorette portion of the night:


For the first half of the night, we headed to the winery where Jessica’s getting married at!


It was really cool to be there and think about how she’s going to get married in the same spot in about a month!! It’s a beautiful winery, and she’s going to be SUCH a gorgeous bride. Gah.

Jessica and her bachelorette glass:


We had a table reserved, and after several tastings, each got our own bottle


IMG_2136I chose a riesling, and guys, this bottle did me in.


Bottoms up!


I’m not the drinker I once was. I didn’t even finish my bottle! It didn’t help that they didn’t have anything I was able to eat there…but I made with do:)

While everyone else ate pizza (none was available without meat – they tried though 🙂 ) I snacked on some popcorn:


We left when the bottles were (mostly, heh heh) finished, and headed to a bar down town where we danced and had a great time! Oh, and I had my second course:


I whipped that bad boy out of my purse in the booth we were sitting at in between songs, haha

And once back home to my parents’ house, I had a real meal:


Peanut butter and jelly! And water.


I was slow moving at first this morning, but as I got going, I felt a lot better. This sustaining breakfast helped me out a bit too:


Sometimes I feel like green monsters can fix anything…

I hit up the gym, worked on some websites, did some detox yoga, and talked with a client, and then I was already hungry for lunch:


My favorite baked tofu atop a bed of rice and baked asparagus. My baked tofu recipe will soon be in the recipes tab you see at the top of my page. My friends Jessica (the bride) and Steph (in the purple) convinced me this needs to be done. And it will be done. Promise! Got the tab up there now, so it’s in motion!

I also ate my weight in watermelon today 🙂


Well I’m off to go finish cooking dinner and then get in some relaxation time. I’ll see you in the morning with a somewhat TABOO topic post. Yikers!!

Don’t forget to enter my NuNatural’s Stevia Giveaway! It ends tonight at midnight!

What was the wildest bachelorette party you’ve been to if you’ve been to one? I’d have to say mine was for my girl Mel’s bach party four years ago. It was a willlld night and I was in rare form!
