Hello, hello!

The wedding reception we went to last night was SO. CUTE! The couple was married in Aruba a couple months ago, and held their local reception in a party barn out in the country.

Don’t let the name fool you. This “party barn” was no run down, old farm barn and the couple decked the place out with simple, yet chic, decorations.

Like lemonade & iced tea in mismatching bottles at every table. So unique!

Or simple pillar candles nestled in sand to light when twilight came.

I ADORED the brightly lit stars hanging from the ceiling of the barn.

Aren’t they great? Casual, yet elegant. :D

During the evening we dined on BBQ sandwiches & vanilla cupcakes, and sipped on sangria & beer served in custom coozies.

There was also a big, breezy tent set up outside, where guests could cool off – it was a beautiful night.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again – I LOVE WEDDDINGS! :)

The euphoria quickly wore off as I woke up this morning and was barely able to wrench the rings off my fingers. Between the fair food, alcohol and BBQ – my system was on salt, fat & crap overload!!!

I got up early and went for a 4 mile walk, drank TONS of water, and sat down to a light lunch at my parent’s house.

They too fell victim to all the fair food yesterday, so my Mom made a healthy feast of grilled chicken & pineapple with fresh fruit,

fresh corn on the cob,

and oven roasted potatoes.

Anti fair-food food!!!!

We still left room for dessert, natch.

Blue Bunny Peanut Butter Fudge Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches. This is why I could never give up dessert. This sandwich right here. Unforgettable!!!!!!!

  • Giving my inbox some serious TLC
  • Walk with Ben?

Have a great rest of your Sunday, everyone!
