Been too Long

Has it really been 2 weeks since I've posted. Wowza, where does time go?!? Obviously time management is not my forte this month. By the way if my spelling stinks blogger's stupid spell check isn't working and it's too much energy to copy this to Word to make sure I spelled everything properly.

Anyways so what have I been up to these last two weeks? I know you are just on the edge of your seats waiting! A lot of work travel and a lot of wedding stuff. The running has been better but not fantastic. I was able to get outside twice last week (woo hoo). My old short runs are now my long runs which is kind of depressing. I hope to get back to where I was soon. I have attempted the treadmill more these past two weeks but my heart is just not in it and I end up heading to the elliptical after 20 minutes. I seriously cannot wait for spring or at least 40 degree weather instead of this negative _ degree wind chill crap. And as of 3 days ago I messed up my shoulder. No idea what I did but it hurts when I carry my suitcase, raise my arm, change the radio in the car. Of course I am being stubborn and still working out and haven't made a doctor's appointment yet. I am giving it until the end of the week then I'll follow up with someone.

On the personal/wedding front - I found my wedding dress!!! And for a FANTASTIC deal. I love deals. And I can't wait to post pics after the big day in August :) And no it doesn't look that that crazy picture but wouldn't it be awesome if it did? But the dress made me realize I need to do push-ups among other arm exercises and get these puppies toned. We also registered. Man what a process that was. Our entire Sunday gone but at least it's done. Plus, Crate and Barrel was having a little registry "party" that allowed us and about 20 other couples to go before the store opened, eat, drink, and register without tons of people around. PLUS a FREE gift. Love it! I am meeting with the florist tonight so hopefully we get along and has good ideas because her price is good enough. Flowers are crazy expensive and I just don't have the desire to pay that much for them. Then I just need to find a cake as well as confirm some other items then I am nearly done with the big stuff. Oh and the honeymoon - we can totally fly to Fiji on my miles and stay in a Hilton because I have never used my hotel points all for $100 in taxes. How much does that rock! We wouldn't be going until a few weeks after the wedding but I am cool with that because when else would I ever go to Fiji!!! So it seems to be coming together. Yeah!

I've been doing a lot of work travel lately too, so it's fun to hear about how someone else is spending their points. Maybe in a few years I can take a nice vacation like that :)

Congrats on all the great stuff happening in your life! I'm excited to see dress pics (in a few months).

Amanda said...

Oh finding the dress is so fun...SOOOO FUN!! I can't wait to wear mine, I mean I would wear it every weekend if that didn't seem odd. :)

Glad you're having fun with it all, I mean it's once in a lifetime right. Now about the weather...seriously when will winter be over!

Marcy said...

OMG I sooooo am hating you right now! LMAO! How can you do this (I know why though)?!? You can't make me wait THAT long to see your dress.

Hi Jamie...

I heard weather is pretty nasty in Chicago, so I hope you're keeping warm planning all your wedding festivities.

Megan Hall said...

Isn't it funny? Everyone thinks registering is the best part of the wedding and then you do it and it's way less fun than you think it will be! Congrats.

Tiffany said...

Girl- that rocks!! I am totally with ya about the hotel points and airline miles racking up. Continue to keep us posted with wedding stuff!!!!! (oh yeah- running stuff too blah) Ha ha haa!!

I am off to cruise for the next week! Wooohooo!

Hi Jamie

Sorry to hear that the shoulder is acting up, but this time of year everything is a little bit crabby. My God, I am tired of 15 degrees... Fiji will be absolutely amazing. My wife and I are avid scuba divers and that is one of the places on our list. Can't beat that price either:-)

Yeah for getting lots done on the wedding. It's going to be awesome. I don't think you have to say you are using pics from Flickr without permission. I think that is part of putting them there - you can use if you post a link. Maybe I'm wrong?

Can't wait to see the dress!!!

Nicole said...

OMG! you are getting such great deals! That is awesome! Fuji sounds amazing!

As for running... I think all of us chicagoans are in the same boat! But, it was somewhat warm this weekend. Hopefully it can stay that way.
