rockin’ the flats

Saturday recap…

Vegan Overnight Oats with 1T flax meal instead of 1T chia seeds.  It was super thick + worked perfectly!

Later in the afternoon, my family + I had a Glo Bar tasting.

I cut up the above 3 bars for everyone to sample.  I don’t think anyone could pick a favorite.  They were gobbled right up and everyone loved them!  I really like the texture of Angela’s bars.

I think so far, my favorite Glo Bars have been the Dark Chocolate Coffee and the Peanut Butter.  I still have one of her new Liberate bars [GF + RAW] to try.  I am definitely looking forward to it! :)

I’ve never been too big of a “heels” girl and hate cramming my feet into pointy, high heels.  Not to mention with all of my barefoot/Vibram walking lately, my feet kind of freak when I have them in regular shoes.  I found these on the clearance rack at Macy’s, marked down from $70 to $25.  Definitely worth it to keep my feet happy!

Classy tan lines thanks to the Vibrams :)

My mom’s 1st cousin, Cheryl, the bride’s mother.  She looked stunning!  Her dress was so unique and just gorgeous.

Courtney looked 100% perfect!!  Her dress looked like it was made for her, her hair was extremely classy, her makeup was natural and her veil was long + elegant.  I definitely got teared up when I saw her!!

Her brother, Justin.  Josh [my bro] and Justin used to gang up on Courtney + me ALL the time when we were younger.  I remember getting locked in a scary basement room, forced to drink some nasty sludge water, never-ending teasing, etc.  Ohhh, older brothers :)

Their first dance was adorable.  They were talking + laughing the whole time, which reminded me of my first dance with Chris.
