30 Day Shred?

More Like 20 minutes in hell for me.

That's right, I've jumped on the Jillian bandwagon and I have the 30 Day Shred DVD at home that I am agonizing over. The first two days were absolute torture and I could barely move afterwards (I am not fit at all). The third day wasn't as bad, but I know it will get better (at least I hope so).


After doing it for three days (with a break in between two and three) I actually feel good and I'm getting used to it (read: less sore). I'm kind of excited to see the difference at the end of the 30 days.

Now before you lecture me for taking a day off, I'll have you know I walked three sections of the lake with Nick that day so it wasn't a total break.

Anyone use this video and notice a difference in how you look and feel?

What does my dress look like?

Well I'll show you!!!

Here's me in the dress:

And here's the detail:

And this isn't me, but I don't have a good picture of the back:

I am getting the color that I am wearing, ivory and cherry and then the bridesmaid dresses are cherry.

Yay for checking it off the list!!

Ordering my dress that is! I am so excited that I got to order my dress this weekend and on the 13th too, which means nine months until the wedding!!!

Side note (but not a small one): My dress was about $200 less than I thought it was going to be and that is just awesome! And my two girls that ordered their dresses were also less expensive than we were figuring. I am so glad I stayed local and bought at the boutique in town and she honored my coupon which came from the dealer and not her shop. Now I just have to wait the six months to get my dress in. *sigh*

I was naughty and only took one picture with my phone (sorry if it's blurry or grainy) because I was not going to take a picture while we were being measured.

Here are my MOH and one of my bridesmaids paying for their dresses, Shannon & Kristen (is behind Shannon and kinda hard to see).

My third bridesmaid, Megan, was there for a while, but wasn't buying a dress because her crafty mother is making it!! Wish I was that talented, but oh well. :)

What a week

So let me give you the run down. Tuesday I took my car into the shop because one of the rear brakes was grinding. I got a call later that day telling me I needed new brakes on all four wheels. Yikes!! There goes my savings account, but it needed to be done. Then yesterday I got my tattoo and it's AMAZING (as well as expensive, so my funds have depleted even farther!!!! But...

I get to order my dress tomorrow and am SO excited!!! I can hardly wait even though I know I won't get it for about six months. And my cousin is coming tonight that I haven't seen since March (I think, maybe February)!

Happy weekend! I know mine will be :-)

Friday fun

Happy friday yet again. I thought I'd post pictures of animal weddings since I love dressed up animals (yeah, I'm one of those, but my dog doesn't wear clothes very often).









Happy friday!!

I just want to say that I hate the myth that the wedding day is all about the bride. Ah!!!! I want my wedding to be about both me and my groom.

That's all I have to say about the matter.
