Happy Monday Morning! Are you playing a little catch-up from the weekend like I am? Well, then you’ll want to be sure to check out any posts you may have missed before getting into today’s…
So now, hopefully you’ve at least read Parts 1 and 2 of Sarah’s fun-filled bachelorette party…so let’s go on to the final Part 3!
Sunday morning, we all awoke nice and early so we could meet for a delicious, pre-arranged breakfast located right inside of the resort at Simply Red Bistro.
And thanks to my decision to stop drinking wine by 9pm the night before, I woke up bright-eyed and bushy tailed with no sign of a hangover. Two thumbs up? I think so!
The breakfast menu at Simply Red is small (four items to choose from), but regardless of which item you choose, you also receive a basket of fresh baked pastries, seasonal fruit or yogurt and granola, coffee, juice, and/or tea.
I did try a piece of one of the pastries, which was so flaky and buttery that it took a lot to stop at just a couple bites.
I ordered the fruit cup along with a mug of coffee, although I almost kind of regretted not getting the yogurt and granola parfait. It looked really good.
But now…let’s really talk about this breakfast.
I need to tell you guys that this may, in fact, be one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had.
It rivaled the Banana & Caramelized Almond Pancakes I devoured in Vegas…
It may, in fact, have topped my beloved Red Raspberry Oatmeal Pancakes…
In case you couldn’t already tell, if I’m not ordering an omelet, I’m almost always a pancake girl. They’re a favorite. But when I opened the menu and noticed Oatmeal Crusted French Toast staring back at me, I just couldn’t resist.
Two slices of thick, fluffy French Toast, which were encrusted with the most delicious, sweet, oatmeal coating which was nothing like I’ve ever had. That oatmeal coating alone probably would have blown me away, but then it came topped with brown sugar cream, fresh strawberries, and a side of locally made maple syrup.
I mean, it was just unreal. UNREAL I tell you! I’m currently battling with myself trying to decide if I want to figure out how to make this on my own…it could be amazing, or it could be dangerous.
Actually, it would be very dangerous. So I’m thinking that I’ll leave it to the amazing chef at Simply Red and only hope that I’ll, one day, be able to enjoy it again. WOW.
Breakfast was definitely enjoyed by all.
After we all enjoyed our breakfast together, it was time to head out for the final item on our weekend itinerary…
Spa Treatments at August Moon!
August Moon Spa is located right within the LaTourelle Resort, and offers a variety of spa treatments to suit anyone’s desire. Upon arrival, we were all welcome to change into our robes and sandals to get ready for each of our individual services.
While there were a number of intriguing services on the spa menu, I opted for a simple, 50-minute Swedish Massage. Honestly, it wasn’t the best massage I’ve ever had, but really…any massage I get can never really be bad, can it?
Once my massage was over, I headed into the spa’s Tranquility Room for a good 30 minutes or so, where I was actually able to get a chance to finish reading my book. As much as I enjoyed Emily Giffin’s last book, I don’t think I liked it as much as this one.
So once everyone was finished up with their spa treatments, it was time to hit the road. As sad as it was to have the weekend over, I think we were all feeling pretty pooped and ready to get back home.
Nonetheless, it was definitely an amazingly fun weekend, and I was so happy to be able to be with Sarah and share this experience with her.
I think I want to do this EVERY weekend.
