Carpe Diem

I was up and at em yesterday morning after a pre-wedding bar crawl for Kelly Thursday night.   I remembered about halfway to uptown that I forgot my camera!!  Tragic.  Some people are supposed to send me pictures.  We went to Dandelion Market and Molly McPhearson's.  I kept it low key and only had two beers because I had to drive home. 
I didn't get to bed til about 2am, partly because I got home late from the bar crawl and partly because Greg drove home from Charleston, WV last night and got home around 1:45am and it took a little while to calm Clyde down and get all settled in bed. 
Anyway, I woke up and got ready for a busy day. 
Breakfast was a simple bowl of Kashi Honey Sunshine cereal with banana and skim milk:

First up was an appointment with Greenapple for my knee.  Treatment seems to be going well and I was told to try running on my knee this weekend.  Yay!
Next up was a Versa Spa spray tan.  I've had Mystic Tan's done before, and also got an airbrush tan before my brother's wedding in the fall.  I am just REALLY REALLY pale and like a little color when I'm in a big event such as a wedding with all eyes on me.  Plus, I'm surrounded by very tan friends and relatives of Kelly in this wedding and I didn't want to look like a ghost!  This was my first time trying Versa Spa.  I liked it.  It's a little more complex than Mystic in terms of moving around in the booth while you get sprayed, but nothing major.  It doesn't smell as strong as Mystic and the results seem good.  No streaks or weird spots like I've occasionally had with Mystic.  I also seem tan enough, but not so much that people were like, "Wow, you are SO TAN" (I'm not going for that).  And I don't look like an Oompa Loompa.
Well, I don't think I do...
I got home and got my stuff ready for Kelly's rehearsal and dinner. 
I made lunch for Greg and I and we decided on panini sandwiches.  I made provolone and tomato with a sprinkle of italian seasoning on whole wheat Harris Teeter loaf.

Greg had two sandwiches and I had one, with some carrots and cottage cheese:

Then it was off to get my nails done with Kelly and bridesmaids:

The beautiful bride!
After the nail salon we were whisked off the the church for the rehearsal.  After a quick half hour of practice it was over to Carpe Diem for dinner.


Dinner began with platters of three different appetizers:
Shrimp Cocktail:

Cheese, crackers, and fruit.

Also an unpictured hummus and pita plate.
Then we had a salad with spinach, blue cheese, onion, pistacio, and grapes.

For the main course we had a choice of 4 entrees.  I chose Mahi Mahi:

Greg had Filet Mignon, and I fulled intended on switching halfway with him, but ended up just having a couple bites of steak and wanting to finish my Mahi, because it was so good!  It was served with rice, asparagus, and tomato.  Awesome!
Greg's steak:

Then for dessert I chose berry cobbler, and Greg had some kind of chocolate deliciousness:

After dinner we took a couple shots outside...

So excited for the happy couple!!

I'm drooling over all that food! Great news about your knee!

Ha! When you said "couple of shots outside" I immediately pictured you and Greg taking "shots" in the parking lot. ;)
