We were awoken to a “tap tap tap” at the door this morning. At 8 O’clock and still asleep!

It was Andrew with two coffees claiming we “needed to get our bowels moving.” Ha!

I groggily sipped down some OJ that he retrieved from the breakfast room as well. I am not feeling well this morning!! BLAH WINE!

We are lucky to be staying at a really neat Residence Inn! It’s a complex of suites fit with full-size kitchens. Not sure we’ll be cooking any meals here, but it sure was handy to be able to assemble breakfast on the spot and eat on a plate

My bread plate was incredible! Whole Grain Goodness from Great Harvest Charlotte topped with a mashed banana, Nuttzo blobs and Pear Fig jam (which says “refrigerate after opening” but since there’s only a little bit left I just brought it anyways – although we DO have a refrigerator!)

Blah hotel coffee

We’re going to do a bootcamp of sorts after we digest to get some activity. There are tennis courts here and we might run some laps around the complex with the cousins.

The wedding is going to be at an amazing cliffside chapel about an hour away – we’re departing around 11:30 and the ceremony is at 1:30. I have already been briefed on the Bourbon Pecan wedding cake!!

3 Estela @ Weekly Bite October 10, 2010 at 7:47 am

Great breakfast! and the bootcamp idea sounds so fun – I once tried to do a bootcamp..the rain and mud made it near impossible!
Have a lovely time today :)

Peanut Nuttzo! I’m going to buy it soon. :)


6 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin October 10, 2010 at 8:02 am

I hope you feel better after that breakfast! Getting food in my belly always helps me to get over the feeling of having had too much to drink the night before. 😉

Bourbon Pecan? MMM! Hope it’s a beautiful day for you!

9 Hannah October 10, 2010 at 8:17 am

Hotel coffee is rarely anything but “blah”, sadly! But hey, if it gets the bowels moving 😉 *laughs*


10 Meg October 10, 2010 at 8:22 am

Holy delicious wedding cake – can I join you for the cake? 😉 Haha!

Hope ya feel better Kath!


11 Nicole @ yuppie yogini October 10, 2010 at 8:22 am

Too bad all hotels don’t have full kitchens. When I travel, I usually bring food and water for convenience, to save money, and to have healthier options. That wedding cake sounds dangerous!


12 Brittany @ Bee Louise's Bites October 10, 2010 at 8:27 am

Bourbon Pecan…bless them haha

Have fun at your wedding! Hope the weather is beautiful :)


13 Shannon @ Freshman Yr of Life October 10, 2010 at 8:40 am

I’ve never thought to mush bananas and put it on top of toast! Omg thanks for this! And too think, before I started reading your blog I never ate oatmeal!! (gasp!)

Have a great time at the wedding. I love hearing about southern traditions, like drinking Maker’s Mark and eating Bourban Pecan wedding cake. New England is so different, which makes me want to take a trip to some southern states.

I love staying at places like the Residence Inn. We stayed at one in Quebec the last time we went skiing, which would have been perfect for bringing our own breakfast and lunch supplies. (But we were on a road trip and didn’t plan ahead. Next time.)

Bad coffee is not the best way to start the day. The cake sounds amazing.


17 holly @ couchpotatoathlete October 10, 2010 at 9:19 am

Bourbon pecan cake sounds amazing — I can’t wait to see the pictures.

Enjoy the wedding!


18 claire October 10, 2010 at 9:24 am

I can’t wait to see photos of the wedding! I love that your bro-in-law brought you coffee, so sweet! Oh, and that bfast looks quite delicious for hotel room eating!


19 Vicky (eat live spin) October 10, 2010 at 9:27 am

Hotel coffee is awful… but at least you have fig jam! The wedding cake sounds incredible… have fun and feel better. There seems to be a cold going around the East coast according to my Dr… I have one too.


20 thetreadmilldiaries October 10, 2010 at 9:50 am

Have fun today! And finger-licking good, nutritious breakfast considering you’re in a hotel. Need to pick up some of that fig pear jam. Sounds delicious.


21 Kjirsten- Balanced Healthy Life October 10, 2010 at 10:20 am

That wedding cake sounds amazing!


22 Jil October 10, 2010 at 10:36 am

hahahaha I laughed outloud at the “get the bowels movin” hahaha


23 Grocery Goddess Jen October 10, 2010 at 10:43 am

Bourbon Pecan cake? That sounds incredible.


24 Sarah October 10, 2010 at 10:54 am

I’m not the happiest this morning thanks to wine as well. Hopefully your blahs pass quickly! Can’t wait to see pictures of the picturesque sounding wedding venue.


25 Lea @ Healthy Coconut October 10, 2010 at 10:58 am

I love staying at Residence Inn, it’s my favorite of all the Marriott hotel chains :)

Have fun at the wedding, I’ve never had the cake you’ve mentioned…curious to see what it looks like and excited to see more pictures from the wedding. Since I’m planning my wedding, I’ve been breathing and living wedding stuff lately…I like looking at other pictures of wedding and get ideas on what items I can personalize for mine.


26 Lauren at KeepItSweet October 10, 2010 at 11:26 am

wow what an interesting wedding cake flavor, have fun!


27 Ahn Ei October 10, 2010 at 1:23 pm

Love Residence Inns too! Your breakfast looks tasty! Have fun at the wedding!


28 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) October 10, 2010 at 1:53 pm

I love the full-size hotel kitchen! That’s awesome. Would be great for a long stay on vacation.
