Rehearsing The Big Day

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on August 13, 2009

Hey guys!

What a day we have had so far! This is the first chance I have had to stop and take a quick break. I missed you!


Here is a recap of the day so far…

Eats on the drive up…

The drive wasn’t too bad- 2 hours 15 mins today! :) It was nice having hubby drive it this time.

This hotel is crazy. Each room has a different theme.

Our hotel room is called Blast….need I say more?



This room is certainly a blast!

We checked in and had 10 minutes to get dressed and down to the rehearsal! Rush, rush, rush.

After Eric’s birthday dinner, we liked our outfits so much, we decided to wash and wear them again for the rehearsal (we’re lazy and couldn’t come up with another outfit! lol).

I sipped on a green monster for some energy.


Of course I squeezed in a couple photos…

We stocked the kitchenette (my side left, Eric right lol)


A very large bathroom with tons of counter space for me to clutter up with all my junk! HAHA!


You’re looking at a toaster RADIO (yes it works- we tested it! Will be using it to make bagels tomorrow AM)




A thank you bag from Leah! yum!!


In a hallway of the hotel:


We hurried off to the rehearsal shortly after arriving…

It was HOT. And apparently it is supposed to be hotter tomorrow. Eek!


And then we headed to Leah’s for the rehearsal dinner:

Carley and I:


I had half a glass of Pinot Gringo:


My plate: Vegetarian wrap with hummus, veggies, and tomato basil pasta salad:


Eric had a huge piece of carrot cake for dessert.


I was jealous so I had seconds of veggies and salsa.


We are back at the room now chillin.

I’m blogging with my main squeeze ‘Shecky’. He’s so cool.

I also had a Glo Bar for my dessert :D

I finally nailed the Molasses pumpkin spice one, so expect to see it on the website soon.


Eric’s working on his golf swing:


We’re pooped and it’s not even the wedding yet! lol.

Game plan tomorrow:

  • 7am wake up call for Eric (going golfing with the boys)
  • I’m HOPING to get up the same time and go for a run
  • shower
  • 9am: go next door to Carley’s PALACE for hair and make up :)
  • Wedding!

Check out her room!!!!!

Ohmygosh, that room is too much!! I love staying in hotel rooms, it brings out the kid in me and I just want to jump on the bed :P


Paige @ Running Around Normal August 14, 2009 at 10:24 am

What a fun hotel! I wonder how much Eric likes it though, hehe.


Maggie August 14, 2009 at 11:05 am

When you first mentioned that the hotel’s rooms had different themes I cringed thinking of the Fantasy Land but OMG that is the funkiest place! Very cool and very fancy with the living room and kichenette and all, when the wedding’s over you’ll have to let everyone know what it’s called. i’m curious as to what other themes they have.
Have fun today!


Jackie August 14, 2009 at 11:33 am

That is seriously an awesome looking hotel room. So different and fun from the hotel rooms I’ve ever stayed in. Are all hotels in Canada cool looking like that??? If so I want to try one out because American ones are so boring!


Anne Marie @ her new weigh August 14, 2009 at 11:48 am

Wow-what an awesome-looking hotel!!


Laura August 14, 2009 at 12:50 pm

What a funky hotel room! Looks like a “BLAST,” indeed.

I just love the color of the bridesmaid dress, how lovely.

Have a great time getting your hair done and prepping for the big day!



britt August 14, 2009 at 2:51 pm

Victoria August 14, 2009 at 2:52 pm

Menden @ Skinny Menny August 14, 2009 at 2:59 pm

What a cuh-razy room!! Have a blast, lol!


Zach August 15, 2009 at 12:53 am

Eric, keep that left arm straight!


Tay August 15, 2009 at 2:11 am

OMG that is such a cute room!!! I’m loving all the graphicy designs & bright colors. And I love your shirt so much, I don’t blame you for re-wearing it :-)
