I can't believe yet another weekend is over already! First, Happy Father's day to all who are fathers. Second, I know this is primarily a running blog but as of late it has become primarily a wedding and general life blog. So if you can't stand all this wedding talk it will all be over in 70 days.
This weekend was sort of productive on both the wedding and running fronts. Friday I was way too tired to do much of anything but I managed a nice home weight session before heading out for dinner. I tried a new circuit from one of my gazillion magazines I subscribe to and it kicked my butt literally. My booty is still sore. After dinner I came home to finish our wedding invitations as I had made myself a deadline of Saturday to get them in the mail. Even though at 1am I realized I was missing 6 peoples invitations (ugh) I am happy to report those suckers made it in the box by the required date :) Yay! I was so nervous putting them in the box (yes I know that wedding etiquette states I should request those time sucking pieces of paper to be hand stamped but seriously?!? I am not asking my post office to do that. They would just laugh me into the next neighborhood). It's so real and now begins the competition with who will return their RSVP first then who won't at all...The remainder of Saturday was spent searching high and low for an affordable sectional that is also comfortable (read can't get out of when you stand up but don't feel like you are laying on cement) we came home with no sofa and very frustrated. I was also on a wedding low as I didn't know what my next project would be and so not feeling a run in me. However, as I sat to watch Terminator 3 (I'm a sucker for sci-fi movies with good action on HD) and watch the minutes tick by I thought I would put the running clothes on at least and see if that would motivate me. And it did! I was only going for 3 1/2 and it turned into 5 because I was feeling so good. I probably would have gone more if we weren't meeting friends for dinner at our favorite sushi restaurant. Dinner was fabulous as always and the company even better! I slept in on Sunday and ran errands when Jacob decided he wanted to golf before settling in to watch the US Open. The new project of the day after a requisite trip to Target was that I was going to attempt to make our wedding guestbook. And you know what I did and if I don't say so myself it is pretty freaking fantastic. It took me about 4 1/2 hours and some swearing at the very confusing instructions with blurred pictures but I figured it out. Of course there are a couple things wrong but nothing blatantly obvious and I saved myself a good $30 making it myself. That's a dinner out one night :) And after this little project I decided I wanted my new job to be making wedding albums :) It would be so much more less stressful than my current position while still being able to work from home ;) Jacob thinks I'm crazy. I say there is money to be made!
