Another wonderful wedding filled weekend. We even had a Thursday wedding!!
Very pretty with shades of purple. Thursday night I made dinner:
Whole wheat pasta with cajun tofu, peppers,onions, and mushrooms.
Friday’s wedding was soft shades of pink:
I didn’t get home until pretty late Friday (crazy traffic), I hurriedly showered and hit the road with my friend Nichole.
Girl date to see David Tutera. My fault that we were running late and ended up with limited dining options, so we picked Crispers for a quick meal. I got a pot roast and gravy topped baked potato, chicken ceasar leetuce wrap, and side salad:
It was good though! The show on the other hand…… we didn’t really know what to expect, and there were some good parts, but overall, just meh. I was glad to spend some time with my friend though 🙂 Here’s David:
And some crazy contortionist:
Saturday night was the best date night ever! The man I love (my future husband), took me to Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant. It’s a new place just around the corner from us that I have been wanting to go to. It was an hour wait, but it was the most fun wait I ever had! We bellied up to the wine tasting bar for a flight of wines.
We got to try a special reserve wine straight from the barrel. It was the best wine I have ever had:
They do 8 GENEROUS pours of different types of wines. They get you nice and typsy, then talk you into signing up for the wine club 😉 Dinner was excellent! The best we have had in a while. We started out with the calamari, which was fried tempura style, light and crispy, like a little seafood donut:
We then split the pesto ceasar chopped salad:
We were served a yummy pretzel bread:
I ordered the mixed grill with filet, pork tenderloin, and lamb chop (so good, but I don’t think I’m a lamb chop fan :()
Honey got the crab cakes, also delicious:
Sunday was Mother’s Day. I have the best momma by the way. I didn’t have a wedding, so I had the whole day to just relax. It was awesome! We had lunch in St Petersburg at the 4th Street Shrimp Store. I got the fresh, local blackened grouper sandwich and it was amazing!;
Then we headed to mom and sister’s for a Mother’s Day celebration. We hung out by the pool, played in the yard, did gymnastics, and had a dance party:
Even grandma did a cartwheel, it was pretty amazing! Wish I could have snapped a picture fast enough 🙂
Dinner was fried then grilled turkey, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, cole slaw, salad and fruit, yum!
Such a wonderful weekend. I also had today (Monday) off. I washed all my laundry, cleaned, went grocery shopping and to the dentist. I’m all ready for another busy week 🙂
