Jam-Packed

Today was a jam-packed day!

Within 30 minutes of waking, Ryan and I were off to Bradenton to meet his dad for breakfast.

Ryan and His Dad

Ryan’s dad’s birthday was yesterday, so it was great to see him and spend some time with the birthday boy.

We met him at Peaches, an adorable restaurant that serves only breakfast and lunch.

I ordered a veggie omelet with a side of fruit salad.

After breakfast, Ryan, his dad and I ran to the outlets to stop in some shops. I wanted to return a pair of running capris to the Nike outlet and I left with a new sports bra and workout top. Score!

Wedding Dress Shoppin’

After saying goodbye to Ryan’s dad, we headed back to St. Pete.

I hopped into the car with my mom and sister to leave for our 12:30 appointment at a wedding dress boutique that was hosting a San Patrick trunk show.

They had the gown I loved the last time I was there, and I tried it on again. It really is beautiful! I apologize for the lack of pictures, but Ryan can’t see me in the dress that could be the dress until the big day. I’ll post pictures of the contenders once I actually select the dress, I promise!

After that trunk show, we headed over to the next trunk show featuring Maggie Sottero dresses. I had such high hopes, but was pretty disappointed. They only had a small selection of Maggie dresses and I didn’t see any of the ones I loved online. Oh well.

We were pretty darn hungry by the time all of our wedding dress appointments were over and headed to El Cap to pick up cheeseburgers for us and the guys to enjoy at home.

I only wanted a few bites, so I shared a burger with Ryan. I was cravin’ dippy eggs and fixed myself a yummy plate.

I enjoyed a Honeycrisp apple and a bowl of grapes on the side.

After a late lunch, Ryan and I decided to make a cake to enjoy for dessert tonight.

My mom loves tunnel of fudge cake and I gave her a box of the mix for Christmas. We decided to make this tasty cake and it made the whole house smell heavenly.

Before we added the chocolate to the mix, Sadie and my sister got to lick the beaters (one each) full of butter and sugar. They were in heaven.

Yummy

Once we added the chocolate to the mix, Ryan and I dug into the batter for more than one fingerful of the yummy goodness. 🙂

I can’t wait to enjoy this cake tonight. Yum.

Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend!
