First off, Happy One-Month Engaged-iversary (thanks for coining this, Gabby) to my fiancé, Jared! Apparently time really does fly when you’re having fun…only 10.5 more months to go! An update on our wedding checklist:
Church Reception Hall Ring sizing(I’ll be missin’ this bad boy for TWO MONTHS while it’s in the shop) Caterer Bartenders(priorities, people) Photographer Color scheme
I’ve also logged quality hours of “research” on Pinterest. 🙂 That counts, right?
In other news, Jared decided that since he didn’t totally kill me off in the half-marathon training, we should start the P90X program. We’re a couple days in and so far, so good (except laughing…and walking). #nopainnogain
I’m going to convince myself that these workouts burn at least 1,000 calories so that I have no shame in going back for seconds/thirds at Thanksgiving. Not that I wouldn’t do this anyway, but now there’s no shame.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, I can’t wait to see family, shop ’til I drop and get down on my mom’s cheesy carrots. My nieces and nephew are getting so big/funny/smart and make family get-togethers fun when all the adults want to do is slip into a food coma.
Last weekend, we celebrated Benton’s second birthday with a Mickey-Mouse themed pizza party. Ben wasn’t feeling well, but that was nothing a little cake and an electronic, break-dancing Mickey couldn’t fix! Then he perked right up and we all had a great time.
Thanks for the party, Benton!
And Jared, thanks for putting up with me for the first month. One down, only 700 to go!
