We’ve had a great weekend here so far for Matt’s brother’s wedding festivities. The rehearsal dinner last night was at a beautiful place called Proximity Hotel, which is apparently one of the greenest hotels in all of the U.S.! They even had solar panels on their roof (Lu, I thought of you!). So awesome. Check out how cool it looked at night from the outside!
The room was set up beautifully — the table arrangements were actually made with wheat grass! I was tempted to eat it 😉
And the food was delicious, too. Started with salad:
And then I had the salmon with string beans and mashed potatoes. Yum!
There was also cake, but I passed. I’m just not a cake person! I love ice cream, milkshakes, pie, tarts, fruity sweet things… but cake? Meh. I always had ice cream cake for my birthdays when I was little 🙂
There was a balcony off the room where we all had dinner, and the sunset was beautiful! Doesn’t this picture look we’re on a tropical vacation somewhere?!
I’m wearing a new dress from Target, heh. Major impulse purchase last week when I went there to pick up something completely unrelated. Doesn’t that always happen at Target?! Anyway, only $20 and I love it! They have so many fun sundresses right now 🙂
Matt and I just hit up the hotel buffet for breakfast, and he wanted to show everyone his breakfast versus mine, lol.
Hers: oatmeal topped with craisins, a little granola & brown sugar, sliced banana, and a packet of almond butter. YUM! Plus lots of fresh fruit and a little scrambled eggs. I did steal a bite of Matt’s bacon, though 😉
The highlight of breakfast was this 90 calorie Barney Butter almond butter packet I brought with me. Yes, I travel with almond butter. Doesn’t everyone?! 😉
SO worth it for travel! I need to stock up on more. I’m almost out!
Matt and I are going to hit the hotel gym and then head out to explore some before the wedding. I love how groomsmen don’t need any time to get ready, unlike bridesmaids. 🙂 A bunch of our DC friends will be arriving soon and it should be a really fun day, although I have a horrible cold and sound kind of like a man. Sexy.
Have a good one!
