The bar! I sipped water to start…

IMG_8394 (640x427) (2)

And shared a beer with Matt – had about 1/5 of the end of the bottle after he poured into a glass.

FOODZ!!! The food was so wonderful – very rich and flavorful and tons of fun variety! They had four stations: Antipasta, fruit + cheese, appetizers | Pork Tenderloin with Mac n Cheese and Green Beans | A Shrimp and Grits Extravaganza | A Pasta Party

I had my one drink of the night – a glass of red during dinner.

IMG_8443 (640x427) (2)

IMG_8441 (640x427) (2)

IMG_8442 (640x427) (2)

Matt and I shared plates. It’s just so much easier to share than to photograph my own plates. I had at least two bites of everything. It looks like a ton of food but I didn’t feel like I ate too much! [Although I’m sure technically I did 😉 ]

IMG_8468 (640x427)

IMG_8469 (640x427) (2)

IMG_8471 (640x427)

IMG_8472 (640x427) (2)

Seconds! (Still shared)

IMG_8473 (640x427) (2) IMG_8474 (640x427)

Congrats to the not-so-newlyweds, Micah + Casey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IMG_8427 (640x427) (2)

IMG_8423 (640x427) (2)

IMG_8479 (427x640)

They had two kinds – a spice cake and a raspberry chocolate. I shared both pieces with Matt and Snake and probably had 1/2 a slice’s worth. There was also a BANANA flavor that I didn’t get to taste!! And I would have had a better shot of the spice cake but DALLA$ put his finger in it!

IMG_8499 (640x427) IMG_8500 (640x427) (2)

Lots of dancing occurred after dessert – I taught Handy Andy how to waltz!

IMG_8491 (427x640)

Favors!! The tags read that they gave a donation to the American Cancer Society in our honor

IMG_8412 (640x427) (2)

And then we bid our farewell

IMG_8501 (640x427) (2)

IMG_8504 (640x427) (2)

I’m resting my tired feet all cozied up in my king size bed and Matt is who-knows-where playing with his friends.

Emily and I canceled our long run for tomorrow. She is still sick and I think 10 miles was a little ambitious of me coming off of this long weekend. I’m still hoping to get a good run in – just not sure how long it will be! Excited for another morning of sleeping in late for sure 😉
