Things are starting to amp up over here for the wedding festivities – 2 days to go! On the agenda today is brunch with Matt’s parents, getting my hair highlighted, a final dress fitting (there were a couple more things that needed to be done when I went on Sunday… fingers crossed it’s ready now), and then making our welcome gift bags! Tonight we have plans for a big family dinner out.
I had a nice day yesterday – spent most of the day working on the computer doing emails, blog stuff, wedding stuff, etc., but I took a break at lunchtime and headed downtown to meet one of my bridesmaids, Turner, for lunch!
It was a lovely day to be downtown – beautiful weather. We hit up Protein Bar, which is a new favorite! All sorts of healthy and creative options.
I ended up getting a huge vegan salad – packed with all sorts of veggies, tofu, pumpkin seeds, chickpeas, and a creamy chia dressing. Very good!
We enjoyed this artwork while we ate. 🙂
I spent the rest of the day doing a little more wedding stuff, headed downtown to meet my friend Kathleen for a walk, and then Matt and I hit up Crossfit Dupont for a workout!
It was a good workout – we practiced bench presses and then did a short workout with 5 rounds of 30 seconds of pull ups (I did mine jumping up from a stool) and 30 seconds of burpees. Short and sweet!
Matt and I picked up some Whole Foods hot bar for dinner since our fridge is empty (no point in refilling it since we’re leaving on Friday!) – I forgot to get a photo, but I did get a photo of dessert, which was way more interesting anyway. 🙂
As part of the DailyBuzz Food Tastemaker program with Ghirardelli Intense Dark™, I was sent a bunch of fun dark chocolate varieties to test out. I’m not a huge milk chocolate fan but I love me some super dark chocolate. It’s such a perfect way to end a meal!
Matt and I tried out the toffee interlude and the sea salt soiree last night. Just a little taste of each was perfect for my after dinner sweet craving! Our favorite was the sea salt soiree, but both were great. 🙂
I also had a tiny nibble of this cabernet matinee – can’t WAIT to have this paired with red wine next time! It would go so well together. Maybe once the wedding is over we’ll have friends over for a wine and chocolate night!
Thanks, Ghirardelli, for giving us the perfect post-dinner treat. 🙂
Time to get started with the day – have a great Thursday, everyone!
