WIAW: What does one eat at a Bridal Shower?

Isaiah 40: 30,31  “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Can I PLEASE get an AMEN!

I never in a million years believed I would be sitting here in a place that in only thirty nine more days I will be sharing with my husband, now I DID however believe the other half of what I’m doing and that’s eating peanut butter and carrots yep that’s a given.

MY WIAW today is going to be SHORT AND SWEET. Literally that’s no joke! I have to shout out to Jenn though for hosting and her sweet link up.

I this weekend was completely blessed by my friends from church who gave up their time to plan and make a pretty stinkin’ awesome Bridal Shower for me.

I did NOT have to worry about a thing it was so fun and effortless for me and I truly truly felt so loved.

For as of late I have been feeling much like the bible verse says, weary. Now I understand I am no youth and that EVEN they grow weary but man planning weddings is a tough job. Shout out to wedding planners, I don’t envy you.

So. Many. Details. Go into weddings but also went into my shower. So what does a Health Nut have at her shower you ask? Well these ladies definitely delivered on the food aspect and I benefited extremely from it!

Table looking pretty tasty!

We had a vegetable platter, ranch dip, little bread rounds with beautiful fresh bruschetta, and angel food cake cut up into pieces with a fresh berry mix and home made whipped topping. Oh and coffee of course. YUM!

Question Game.

One of my favorite parts about Bridal Showers is the question game where they ask the groom questions and the bride has to answer, there’s nothing I love more than a good love story so as a woman this is by far my favorite part! Also bonus, I got to eat angel food pieces if I missed a question…

SO the last photo here is obviously not from the bridal shower, but I did also get to go to a good friend’s (my fiance’s best friend) wedding on Saturday and delighted in some puppy chow which I had not had in quite awhile. Oh. My. Stars. SO GOOD!

So alas the work week has begun and I’m excited to get back into a routine and not have one thing after the other like this weekend has been. However I must say all of these things happening right now are quite the adventure. It seems time is flying by but I’m not mad the only thing I hope is that I’m catching every moment and really savoring this busy and joyful time of life. For now I’ll finish eating my breakfast and head to work shortly, protein pancakes and pumpkin spice remind me of the fall that is ever pressing in on us. Fall reminds me of October and October well, I believe their’s a wedding happening then. 😉



So I’ll leave you with my Monday treat I had waiting at my computer when I logged in on Monday, my eyes literally got huge when I saw this! I had joked with my scheduling coordinator when asked what she could do to make my day, I stated Dark Chocolate, BOOM. Ask and you shall receive, well today anyways. So great!

Like I said guys I’m under the forty day mark until the wedding, so I have a question for ya’ll…

Did anyone go on a diet before their wedding? (I feel like I’m indulging and going to so many weddings lately I’m wondering if maybe I should cut back more!)

Hope you all have a most marvelous Wednesday!
