Our surprise guests are Mike, Katie, and Konner!
Konner is the Husbandâ€™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 bouquetâ€¦
Have I ever mentioned that I had to throw the bouquet three times? Highly embarrassing. I overshot once (like, waaaay over everyoneâ€™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 thereâ€™s something to that old wivesâ€™ tale after all!
Kind of strange to have a small child in our house! Iâ€™m really enjoying itâ€¦ if you follow me on Twitter, youâ€™ll know I have been bitten by the baby bug. Unfortunately, the timing just isnâ€™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!
The special ingredient in todayâ€™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 outâ€¦ 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 donâ€™t like the garter and bouquet bit, especially when it gets raunchy, but I always love it! And I love cake cuttingâ€¦ minus cake smashing. 🙂
And PS â€“ Michelle is giving away a copy of my Operation Beautiful book HERE! You can also buy it on pre-orderâ€¦ it comes out August 3! 🙂
