Woahhhhh what a DAY!
I am totally and completely 100% exhausted! Last night I only got about 4-5 hours sleep….I just couldn’t sleep! I had trouble falling asleep and then when I finally did, I tossed and turned all night until my alarm went off at 5:45. Not even a gallon of coffee could keep me goin today! Regardless, Adam and I got the to the wedding site and finished before the wedding at 2:00 so that’s good at least!
This morning I had the BEST breakfast!! I made a “mess” with the other half of my lb of yogurt from last night (1 cups worth) with cinnamon puffins, a banana, about 2 tbsp of Udi’s granola and peanut butter.
This breakfast actually was a record setter and kept me full for the next 5 hours!!!!! I didn’t even need or want a morning snack. I wish I had access to all the greek yogurt in the world so I could have this exact breakfast every morning but sadly my bank account would indeed suffer.
I ate my sandwich on the run today as we loaded up the cars with cake layers—-just a simple turkey and provolone on the last two slices of my protein bread:
With my sammie, I had an apple and the celery sticks you see here. I didn’t end up eating the cheese or the rice treat.
And now………..for the fun stuff! I present you with a photo journey of the wedding cake process!
Here’s the beginning from the other day—myself immersed in cake batter:
To the construction:
And then today, loading the 8 cake layers into our cars:
Setting up our station at the wedding site:
Adam gets some assistance putting the first tier on the wooden support—(this was the scariest part!)
The bottom half is on!
And then the top:
They wanted 8 tiers because they have been together for 8 years!!! How cute!
I started to pipe a shell border around the outside while Adam did stencil work:
A glorious monstrosity. We finished about 10 minutes before the wedding began. Love workin’ under pressure!
When I got home, I had a snack of a kashi go lean with peanut butter and preserves:
I was going to work out this afternoon but I’m just so tired, I don’t know if I’ll make it. I think my new plan might be to just park myself by the pool instead!!!
See you tonight!
