Newport, RI

Last week Adam and I took off to Rhode Island for a few days to celebrate my sissy getting married! I had never been to Rhode Island but had heard great things and did A LOT of research on where the best places to grub were, of course.

Our first stop when we arrived in Newport was to Easton’s Beach. I read that their snack shack (of all places!?) had an amazing lobster roll. To make it even better you could order TWO for $11. Music to my husband’s ears…

We both ordered the lobster roll and sat on the beach to inhale them.

Mmmm. The best COLD lobster roll I’ve ever eaten (Boston holds the number 1 for a hot roll in my heart).

We walked along the beach before heading back to our hotel to check-in. Rehearsal was at 5 so we had a few minutes to walk around near the shops. I decided we needed something sweet and had my eye on The Fudgery ever since we drove into town.

It was a tough choice but we went with the Oreo Fudge. You buy a slab, they throw it in a bag and then you eat as much as you want (aka the entire slab).


We headed off to the beautiful venue where The (now) Fiora’s practiced their I Do’s.


The rehearsal dinner was at The Landing which was a cute restaurant right next to our hotel. We had the entire upstairs and custom menus for the event.

I’m not usually a fan of Key Lime Pie but this was phenomenal! The bride also planned a grooms cake made out of rice krispie treats since Chris does not like cake (he is a weirdo).

There were lots of drinks and plenty of dancing but after a full day of travel i was ready for bed. Adam and I headed back to the hotel around 11 so we could get up early for a run by the mansions and a delicious breakfast… More on that later!
