The Wedding - Part 3 (The Honeymoon)

Thankfully after about four hours of sleep I started feeling better and we were able to enjoy our honeymoon. 

We'd been working to get Nathan's 2-bedroom apartment set-up, but due to it being ground zero for the groomsmen on Friday morning, I wanted to make sure there was a feminine touch to clean up afterwards. Hannah, Vicki, Amanda, and Meg's little sister Mary Rose went over and cleaned... as well as leaving some special decorations...


Midnight snacks!

Rumplestiltskin's true love potion! (and fairy terrarium - Air)

They made four fairy terrariums for us, one for each element. Above is water.

On Sunday we packed up and headed out for the other part of the honeymoon - a gorgeous bed and breakfast in Stillwater, where we were treated like royalty (or at the very least, Grantham members of Downton Abbey).




We got some amazing food in Stillwater. Quickfire Pizza is fantastic - and gluten free for just $2 more!




Also gluten free - the breakfasts our innkeepers brought us every morning! They made my plate completely gluten free without making it look hardly any different from Nathan's!


We also enjoyed a local grill and malt shoppe, which offered udi's gluten free bread as substitutes for any of their buns on their amazing burgers.


Our rings!






The Ann Bean Mansion in Stillwater, MN. Highly recommended!



Then we came home and had fun doing our own cooking...


All in all, it was the perfect low-key but romantic and fun honeymoon for us. And the perfect way to watch the first season of Downton Abbey (which Nathan had not yet seen. We're not on season 3!)
