What’s this?! A post only three days past the last one?? It’s a blog miracle!
But seriously, I had some time tonight and wanted to just throw you some photos and a small update.
My mom has been in town since last Friday night which means since then, my life has been all wedding, all the time. Her visit was incredibly productive though and we’ve accomplished the following:
- Booked ceremony venue
- Booked reception venue
- Booked salon
- Booked florist
- Bought dress (!!)
This week I’m meeting with a photographer, invitation designer, and baker, and I have emails out to an officiant and transportation. My goal is to not have to think about the wedding whatsoever when we go to Colorado in two weeks!
We found these items to incorporate into the wedding. They might give you a feel for our “theme” – very rustic and earthy (people keep describing the wedding as “trigs and branches”). I’m in love with the old windows. They were only $15 each at a second hand shop in town!
Can’t show you the dress but suffice it to say, it’s very me. You’ll see it next April! Lots more to do but we have a very good start.
While my mom was here, we dined at Cleveland-Heath (twice, actually). This pork belly and watermelon appetizer was to die for – just a little bit spicy due to the pickled jalapenos on top.
I also went to Pint Size Bakery for the first time! I’ve been dying to go to this adorable little bakery, even more so after they served delicious desserts to Pigs and Pints.
We got a mint chocolate dream cookie for Matt…
A white chocolate pretzel krispie treat for moi…
And a breakfast cookie for my mom to eat before her flight this morning.
I love that krispie! All delicious and I can’t wait to go back.
Lastly, I received these bottles of tea in the mail last week and really wanted to blog about them. I’ve seen Sweet Leaf Tea on the grocery store shelves but honestly, I’ve never been a huge fan of bottled/canned tea so I’ve never purchased any.
I also don’t like sweet tea, so that doesn’t help with the search for a bottled tea. They sent us original organic sweet tea and organic raspberry iced tea.
As you can see, the bottle of sweet tea is gone because Matt got to it before I did He said he really liked it! I tried the raspberry and thought it was OK. While I do enjoy the all natural ingredients, most of their teas have added sugar. However, I purchased the Lemon Lime Unsweetened Tea at the store and liked that one the best. It is a viable option for the next time I’m looking for bottled tea and I will buy that particular flavor in the future!
Anyway, I’m off for now. We have a wedding to attend this weekend, and next weekend is our Food Media Forum. Speaking of, tickets are ALMOST SOLD OUT so if you’re interested in going, NOW is the time to get tickets!
Have a great day!
Question: Have you ever had Sweet Leaf Tea? Is there a particular brand or flavor of bottled tea that you like?
