This week has been a jam-packed celebrating two of our best friends getting married! Thursday night was the rehearsal dinner at an amazing Italian restaurant Nicoletta’s Table, Friday was the actual walk-through at the venue which was located at the beautiful Maysara Winery, and Saturday was the big day starting with hair, makeup, and mimosas at 8AM and then we danced the night away until Midnight. To say I was pooped out is an understatement, but it was the best weekend! I feel like I’ve been to so many weddings this year, including our own, that I should be a pro by now!
On Sunday we got up and had brunch in McMinnville at The Community Plate, which is always so good! Thomas got the heritage pork hash and I got an egg BLT on a homemade biscuit. They have an awesome lunch menu as well! If you’re in Oregon and want a cute weekend getaway, I love McMinnville! You’re in the heart of wine country, there’s great restaurants and bars, and you can stay at either the 3rd Street Flats or McMenamins Hotel Oregon .
The rest of our Labor Day weekend was lazy to say the least. Sunday night I made Thomas watch Steel Magnolias for the 100th time and we made pinch of yum’s vegan crunchwrap supremes. Healthier than Taco Bell of course, but not dousing mine in sour cream and guacamole isn’t an option for me. I also packed mine so full that it ended up falling apart in the pan, not quite the pretty picture, but delicious nonetheless. On Monday we decided we would just stay home and relax since it was such a crazy weekend- We slept in, went for a quick run, made yummy açaí bowls, and in spirit of Labor Day and the kickoff of football season, we recipe tested oven-baked chicken wings with a spicy honey glaze! It’s hard to beat fried chicken, but they are still pretty dang good!
Have a good week everyone!!
