Where have I been for the last 22 days since the last post?

A) I had the craziest bachelorette party known and as a result I just returned from my drunken partying haze.
B) The wedding and work stress have resoluted in me losing my mind and forgetting everything about my former life, including my name and blog address.
C) I haven't been running so I feel a bit like a fraud posting a running site.
D) All of the above
E) None of the above
F) A and C
G) B and C

Seriously didn't you hate when your teacher would do that to you on multiple choice. Yeah, one of my friends turned into THAT teacher too. Anyways, sorry I have been MIA. Not sure how many actually may have missed me :) But just checking in to say that my job sucks, planning a wedding on your own while traveling is hard, and I had the most kickass bachelorette party. My girls rock! Maybe this weekend I can actually post some of the tame pictures from the party 3 weeks ago. Then again I may be up to my eyeballs in wedding projects since the boy is out of town. Things are absolutely crazy. I am currently interviewing for a new job while doing all this too. The stress may send me to a white padded room soon. 24 days and the wedding is here and in 31 days I'll be laying my ass on a beach in Fiji. I. can't. wait. Until then my postings will be sparse. As I have not run and it doesn't seem fair to continue to post about wedding crap on a running blog ;) But I'll continue to keep up with all of you even if I can't seem to find a moment to actually comment. Alright off to send e-mails to the 50 people who chose to ignore the "FAVOR of REPLY is REQUESTED" note on my RSVPs. What a waste of stamps I tell you.

Waiting for My Jet Plane

I've been MIA I know. Probably because I don't have much to discuss or find myself with much time to blog. But I have time now as I am stranded in the exciting and bustling Birmingham, AL airport. What started as a 10 minute delay has turned into a 3 1/2 hour delay. I just want to leave and at this point not really caring what time as long as I don't end up stranded here (which is looking more likely as each hour passes). Now I should be writing a report as it is due tomorrow and I have yet another day trip scheduled but I thought I would procrastinate a bit longer.

With all my day trips and general wedding stuff I don't find myself running much (or having time to read about all you running!) The lack of running is increasing my stress levels as I have no outlet now. I really want to get out there. I have often found myself wishing I had the schedule I had last summer filled with humid long runs and new speed workouts but that just is not the case. Luckily I was able to run (in addition to consuming copious amounts of beer and bomb pop martinis) over the long weekend. Also was able to squeeze in a short run in the drizzle with no garmy before catching my flight yesterday.

On the wedding front - 47 days and counting with 98876554234 items on my list to complete. There are good things to do though - a tasting this Thursday, bachelorette party this weekend (the girls are surprising me so this should be fun!), and I think I found a fantastic new and reasonable affordable florist. The last one found it inconvenient to return calls/emails or find any time to meet with me.

Now send your positive thoughts that I get home tonight and am able to spend a few hours of much needed sleep in my bed before heading out for another day visit!

Shower Success!

So Saturday was a success! I am still so tired. It was a long weekend and I drove to work in Toledo two hours there yesterday then 4 1/2 hours back home = long day. My sister and friends put on a fabulous and fun shower. There were lots of laughs and of course a few margaritas and corona's to be had. Definitely had a few too many. I can't believe it is over and July 1st. August 23rd is going to be here before I know it or am ready for it to be! Here's a few pics from Saturday.

My sister decked out one table with a fiesta cake, margarita shaped cookies for the favors, and margarita framed pictures. Yeah and she hand punched all the confetti she put all over the tables. It looked awesome!

My sister made this awesome floral arrangement with 2 1/2 bags of limes!
