April’s wedding was a blast last night, but waking up with a pounding head and an empty stomach was not.
I was wide awake by 7:00 am thanks to my headache, but was a good girlfriend/ sister/ daughter by keeping myself busy with blogging and Facebook instead of waking everyone else up to entertain me. I had to show great restraint on that one. 🙂
After an hour my stomach couldn’t take it anymore and I gave in by texting everyone else for breakfast.
We headed down the street to IHop where I took advantage of the ‘IHop for Me’ menu.
I ordered the whole wheat french toast combo that came with scrambled eggs and turkey bacon.
I’m not a fan of regular syrup, but love the strawberry syrup IHop has. Yum! 🙂
My body was craving water, so I also ordered the not-worth-six-dollar fruit bowl.
We watched the bride and groom open some wedding gifts after breakfast – I want to get married and register for ultra-cool kitchen gadgets!!! – and then wished them well on their 7-day honeymoon cruise!
Bon Voyage April and Jason!!
The plan was to play in the sand at the beach all day and watch fireworks, but the weather pretty much sucked for that activity. Instead we decided to just take a lesuirely stroll before heading home.
On the way back to my parents I split a bowl of fruit with Derek
And had a Cashew Cookie Larabar.
For lunch everyone pitched in to create a seafood feast!
We had fried fish, homemade crab cakes, homemade coleslaw, potato salad, plantains, corn, potato rolls, and homemade cocktail sauce.
So much good food! I had a little bit of everything. 🙂
Mmm…. the perfect Fourth of July meal. We were going to cook out, but the weather was not cooperating. I think our fish fry was a nice compromise. 🙂
I would love to say that Derek and I had big plans to celebrate the Fourth of July, but we don’t. I think we’re both still recovering from all the celebrating we did last night. 😉 Thank goodness it’s a three day weekend!
I think the plan is to go see a movie and maybe catch the tail end of a random fireworks display if possible. That plan sounds like a winner in my opinion!
Have a great Fourth of July everyone!
