Weekend: Bridal Shower, Tattoo, Normalcy

My bridal shower went well - it was a gorgeous day and my family and friends were very sweet and got along really well! I basically ate one meal that day (it was from 11:30 - 3:30ish so I ate right in the middle of the day) with a few snacks surrounding it.

Had a yogurt to start the day, then ate my shower brunch (two small pieces of quiche, fruit salad, and about 1/4 cup of this AMAZING french toast bake my cousin made - also some mimosas and the cake they bought for me!), then I had some sweet potatoes at night.

Back to normal today - had a great breakfast with Chris to start the day on new, colorful plates:


Eating food on colorful plates makes meal time really enjoyable for me. I like colorful food, and this just brings it to a new level! So an egg scramble with veggies and a piece of bacon to start my day. I have LOVED having a whole day to spend with Chris. We went grocery shopping and prepped a bunch of healthy, paleo food for our week. We also went for a walk in the city park:

Told you it was a gorgeous weekend!!!

We also set up our tattoo appointments for our wedding tattoos - we are doing them a few months after the wedding so that we can go on our honeymoon to Japan without having to worry about taking care of new tattoos. So in November, I am getting my first tattoo above the waist: a red-tailed hawk on my rib cage!

I am feeling all sorts of glee, stress, excitement, joy, grief, and everything in between these days.

Onwards and upwards, my friends :)
