Our surprise guests are Mike, Katie, and Konner!
Konner is the Husband’s godson. :) Yes, we buy him Manchester United kits and also try to brainwash him into loving the Miami Hurricanes.
Mike was a groomsman at our wedding!
And Katie actually caught the bouquet…
(Can you spot Jenna and Meghann?)
Have I ever mentioned that I had to throw the bouquet three times? Highly embarrassing. I overshot once (like, waaaay over everyone’s heads), no one budged the second time, and then FINALLY I threw it to Katie.
She was a really good sport!
And a year later, Mike and Katie got married. So maybe there’s something to that old wives’ tale after all!
Kind of strange to have a small child in our house! I’m really enjoying it… if you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know I have been bitten by the baby bug. Unfortunately, the timing just isn’t ideal right now. One day!
Katie, Mike, the Husband, and Konner are going to Disneyworld today, but I stayed behind to get some work done. 🙂
Breakfast was toasted coffee quinoa!
Toasted quinoa is a really fun and easy substitute for granola or raw oatmeal. Here’s my recipe for Plain Toasted Quinoa and Pumpkin Spice Toasted Quinoa.
The special ingredient in today’s bowl? Instant coffee!
- 1/4 cup quinoa, rinsed
- 1/2 tablespoon instant coffee
- 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 350
- Mix the ingredients together and spread out on greased cookie sheet.
- Bake 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from oven and let cool.
I had mine with Greek Yogurt and a sliced banana.
I love coffee flavored anything! I will be sad when my Nescafe Gold Blend Instant Coffee runs out… I bought it in England over Christmas.
Time to get my work on!
Question: What wedding traditions are your favorite? Least favorite? I can understand why people don’t like the garter and bouquet bit, especially when it gets raunchy, but I always love it! And I love cake cutting… minus cake smashing. 🙂
And PS – Michelle is giving away a copy of my Operation Beautiful book HERE! You can also buy it on pre-order… it comes out August 3! 🙂
I have yet to be bitten by the baby bug. The baby bug seems to be afraid to approach me :S
Best wedding tradition: CAKE.
Why people don’t eat the wedding cake, I don’t know. I love the dense texture of a good wedding cake!
