This week's wrap-up

Brrr....it is freakin freezing!!! The little temp gauge says 7 degrees but I just heard the wind chill is around -14. I had plans to not leave the house but of course we have a friends stock the bar party. So not only do I have to leave the house but I had to run errands for said party and then eventually dress up and get all cute to walk outside in the freezing cold. Seriously the tips of my fingers started to get numb just walking to the end of the block. And of course I saw some dude running. I just can't in this weather but props to you man in the yellow jacket and face mask.

The whole working out bit went a bit smoother this week (yeah!) I still hate the treadmill even though I got the iTouch for Christmas so I could download movies and tv shows to help motivate me to stick through it on the mill. No such luck. It's still boring no matter what I watch. I did run twice but I took the week to focus on cross training and weights. My triceps are still sore from two days ago. And I don't even want to talk about how sore my butt was after I did 3 sets of lunges then squats. Oh mama!!! Luckily the pain is motivating me to keep with it because it makes me realize how much I've lost over the last month. So hopefully I'll have some rockin arms come the wedding ;)

Wedding plans are moving right along. I am still a bit nervous that I have booked the place, found a photographer and a dj but still no caterer. Hopefully by the end of the month. I've succumbed to this costing much more than I planned. We can afford it but it just seems ridiculous! As soon as you say "wedding" the vendors eyes get all big like ooh another one to sell more to than she can afford....Oh well, this only happens once (well you hope it only happens once). I think I found my dress but of course the stupid bridal shop girl had me try on a dress I said was out of my price range and of course I like it. She knocked $900 off (overpriced to begin with what) then I found it online through a site my sister used for a little less. It's still more than I wanted to pay. So I'll keep looking then I may just breakdown and spend too much on a pretty dress I'll only wear once. Because I'm no Britney. I won't wear my wedding dress from my 2nd wedding while hanging out with my new paparazzo boyfriend at the local grocery store :)

Isn't shopping at 7/11 post wedding the whole point with the wedding dress? ;-)

I think I'm going to wear my wedding dress like once a month. Maybe just for grocery shopping or a nice dinner, you know why not really.

I've found that the easiest way for me the enjoy the treadmill is to play games, like switching the pace every few minutes or the incline it breaks it up.

I honestly believe that the wedding vendors of the world are really a bunch of vultures. They know you are stuck and I honestly believe they keep in touch with each other to price fix, parcel out jobs (victims), etc. But trust me when I tell you it will all work out in the end and YOU will get what YOU want.

It is freaking freezing and no outside runs for me either!

Oh you aren't planning to wear it to the grocery store? Well that changes things.....

:D

Good luck. It's going to be an awesome day, it's just quite the journey getting there.

I am trying to figure out how to watch a movie on my ipod and run without falling of the treadmill - not smart enough yet.

Hope you find the just the right dress. Even if it is a little bit more - it is worth it for your big day - you only wear it once - so it should be spectacular!
