Weekend Recap 9.13.16 Indianapolis, golf, Cincinnati wedding and friends

Hi friends!! Thank you for all the love yesterday!  We had a lovely dinner out last night followed by an early bedtime… we are crazy, I know. 😉 

Today I am going to recap our long weekend back in the midwest!  Last Wednesday we flew into Indianapolis and got to spend time catching up with my in-laws over dinner at home.  Thursday morning we went out to breakfast at Cafe Patachou with my in-laws before heading to the BMW Championships golf tournament.  My husband loves golf and his parents offered us their tickets in a suite for the day so we happily accepted.

The weather wasn’t the best, but we had fun watching a little bit of golf and meeting some people in the suite.  

 I much prefer to watch golf from one place rather than follow a few players around.

After a few hours at the golf tournament, we hopped in the car and headed to Cincinnati.  Our first stop was my aunt and uncle’s house to say hi.  We used to live less than a mile from them in Cincinnati.

We just had to stop by our old house when we were there.  It is such a weird feeling going back to a house that we have so many memories in and was truly our first house together.

Later that night we met up with some friends of ours for sushi at Cloud Nine.  It was just as good as we remembered! These friends actually got engaged the following day so that was super exciting!!!

After dinner we were able to grab a quick drink with our friends, Luke and Mary, who actually just visited us last weekend in Dallas!!  We spent the evening begging them to come back to Dallas soon. 🙂

Friday morning my husband had to work for a while so I headed off to lunch with one of my best girlfriend’s at Sleepy Bee Cafe.

We had the best time reminiscing and catching up over delicious food and lots of coffee!!  I really love the opportunities and adventures that come with moving often, but it sure does make me miss my friends.

Friday night we headed to the rehearsal dinner at The Art of Entertaining.

The atmosphere is so neat with wine everywhere and we had the most delicious food.  The starter salad was to die for. 

The place had the cutest knickknacks all around and I snapped a few pictures of the funny sayings about wine. 🙂

 After lots of chatting and eating, we headed out and went straight to bed.  We were exhausted.

Saturday morning I had some free time while my husband was eating breakfast with the groomsmen so I headed out to an old favorite running path of mine for a 5 mile run.  It was as beautiful and as hard as I remembered. 😉

After a quick shower, I headed off to lunch with one of my girlfriends and her fiance and baby!!  We went to an old favorite restaurant of mine, Tellers.  We had so much fun catching up and I just loved getting to meet her sweet little one.  Look at those chunky little legs… ahh the cutest!!

After lunch I headed off to get ready for the wedding!  I arrived early to see my handsome groomsman.

Then I went and found a seat!  The wedding was at the Hilton Netherland Plaza in the Hall of Mirrors.  It was absolutely stunning.

After the beautiful ceremony, we headed to the cocktail hour while they transformed the room to the reception.  It was amazing what they did in one hour!

The next morning we headed to Taste of Belgium with some of our good friends that also have a new baby that we hadn’t met yet.  We talked and talked and talked until it was time to head back to Indy for our evening flight.

This little boy was so well behaved!  Such a doll and always great to see our sweet friends!

This was one of the best weekends as we got to see two of our great friends tie the knot and we got to catch up with all of our Cincy friends that we have missed so dearly since moving to Dallas.  Good friends are hard to come by so it was so important to us to make sure we saw as many as possible.  

Have a great day!

Questions:

  1. What did you do this weekend?
  2. What is your favorite wedding cake flavor?
