Alright its been a few weeks and life was a little busy for a second. I was working more hours (yay!) and obviously taking care of Kennedy and then wedding planning makes me drained sometimes. Thinking about everything that needs to be paid for, planned, etc. Honestly, I now understand why people hire other people to do this for them and if I was rich, I totally would! We have major stuff done- reception place, photographer, dj, flowers. I have picked out other important things and I have finalized decisions on the bridesmaids. But all the little things are what get me! I can’t stand this. Really in 20 years is it going to matter what fucking color the flower girls pedals are? or what shoes my bridesmaids are wearing? or how their hair was? PROBABLY NOT! I am very good about being easy about things and going with the flow because I know it won’t matter to me and actually, it doesn’t really matter to me now. I know that things need to coordinate, etc. and I want it to be nice but when I am walking down the aisle, do you think I am paying attention to what color flowers I am stepping on? NO. I am focused on 1st- not falling and 2nd- reaching the altar to marry my fiance! So that’s my feeling on the wedding stuff lately haha!
I have been working out and running and so far its been ok. I ran 3 miles on my birthday (23rd of Jan) in about 31 mins. It’s not very fast but I say its pretty damn good for someone who hasn’t run in 4 months! I have been also lifting weights and eating healthier. I jumped on the bad food bandwagon this weekend and needs to hop off! I slipped a little but I am back to the good stuff! I know that I need to get faster for the marathon because they shut down the course if you don’t make it in time, you are screwed. I wish I knew how to get faster but maybe it will come in time. I will keep you posted!
In other news, if you are NOT on the support call with Tracy & other fabulous people, you need to be! It’s such a great support and I really look forward to talking to this wonderful ladies every week!! If you need more information go to her website or you can always contact me.
And that is my update for now. I am working on getting back into blogging more. I need to only devote a certain amount of time each day to the wedding or I could be looking at stuff for hours, which is NOT a good idea for me haha! And pinterest is the best idea in the whole world, end of story! lol
PS- Today is Anthony & I’s 3rd year anniversary and I have to say I didn’t think I would be a mom now but I love every minute and I love him. I am excited to get married to this man and I am excited for all the things to come!
Alright so if you are a frequent blog reader or a personal friend, you know Anthony and I are getting married October 13th,2012. O.M.G I am overwhelmed. Who likes to do this shit?! Well obviously wedding planners do but seriously?! I am so over my head with decisions. I need to find a way to do one thing at a time. I also need to stop looking at all these different options. I find one I like, say out of 10. Then I go to another website and find 10 more ideas. I am needing to limit myself in where I look and how much I look because if I have to look at 100 things and decide, I feel more overwhelmed. For example: The invitations. I looked at one website and really found ones I loved and that I would be very happy with. Then went to another website and found 20 more I liked. I clicked off the second website and I actually had this conversation with Anthony because if I give myself 100 options, It will take me 100 years to decide which one I “love” the most. Invitations are important to me because they reflect your wedding, your attire and even though people throw them away, they matter. BUT I should not spent 100 years deciding on the friggin invitations! That’s pretty ridiculous if you ask me. I feel this way about everything though. I have been frequent to www.theknot.com and love their site! BUT I find some ideas that I like and then the next day another article comes out with more ideas that I love. I really need to stay away from this type of websites because I am given too many ideas. I have a vision of a unique wedding but nothing too extravagant. I want fun things that the guests will remember but I also don’t want to break the bank trying to do too many things. I am a simple person but your wedding day is kinda a big deal lol. I have to say that huge stuff is done. Reception place has been under contract since October or November. We have the church booked and we are working with the photographer/DJ currently on their contract and we should be booked by next week. We also are in contact with someone about flowers and invitations. So really all that’s left is the little stuff—which is kicking my ass!
I am also starting to second guess my dress choice. I haven’t ordered it yet and maybe to make myself feel better I will try some more to make sure but I think I am doubting it because I am just so wanting it to “perfect” blah blah blah. I love my dress I picked but everyone has said you will get the “I know” feeling right away and I didn’t have that but I do love the dress on me, etc. Maybe I just was distracted when I was trying it on, there was a lot going on and Kennedy was there- not the perfect situation lol. Well I know it will get better once I find away to organize my decisions.
I must say goodbye to peeing by myself….Kennedy crawled for the first time last night. Anthony and I were both standing there and she just randomly went back about 5x and then sat up. I am so excited we were both home to see it because honestly, I was going to be a little peeved if he saw it and I didn’t and I am sure he felt the same way. I have to say that we have both had our shares of firsts separately with her and although, as a mom, you want to see them all, I am glad he has seen some himself with her. But crawling and walking? way bigger deal for both of us to see her do it together. So that is how Kennedy started out her new year and ours!! I am excited for whats in store and maybe I will be biting my tongue later for saying that but I am! I have a feeling she won’t be crawling long though, she would much rather walk and she isn’t too terribly far away.
Now back to peeing by myself, well I know that this would soon come to an end. I have read about it on other mommy blogs where you can’t even go get a tissue without child in tow. Well I know that Kennedy will be that child because she whimpers sometimes if you walk behind a wall for 2 seconds! So as she begins the adventure of getting the hang of moving around, my days are shortened. Maybe I will start peeing with the door closed for these last few times because lets be honest, we have to listen for anything and if I am home with just Anthony or Kennedy, I totally pee with the door open.
And I hope everyone had a safe new year and enjoy what 2012 has in store!
I wanted to write a farewell post to 2011. It was a pretty great year for me and my new family. The best part of 2011? The birth of Ms. Kennedy Madison on March 10th.
(not the best picture of me because I am drugged up! lol)
This year has been a great one to watch Kennedy grow and I look forward to 2012 and all the great things ahead of us. Anthony & I’s wedding is October 13th, 2012 and Kennedy turns 1 in March. But I also look forward to the marathons, eating habits changes, and everything positive in my life. So wishing you and yours a happy new year!!
Wishing you and yours a happy holiday and a wonderful New Year!
Ok so I have this amazing fellow blogger who is doing something awesome and it’s just kicking off. I wanted to post about it here because the more the merrier!
Tracy aka My Tiny Tank started an online weight loss surgery support group conference call (try to say that twenty times fast!) and I think everybody should know about it! I will explain it but also, please hop over to her site here to find out more and to join in!
Ok so this call is flexible to your schedule. There are currently two different times but she is open to more! Basically, every week, for one hour, you are on a conference call with different people. You don’t have to have had weight loss surgery to join because maybe you are thinking about it but want support or to ask questions..join! You could be 10 years out and want some extra support from people who understand. I think it’s a great thing she is doing and it allows people who connect on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc. on a daily basis to talk and support each other beyond 140 characters or emailing!
I will be joining my first call next week on Tuesday from 12pm-1pm Eastern time so I hope you will join us too! So even if you are not sure or maybe I don’t do it justice…head over here to read more about it and feel free to contact Tracy with questions or if you want to, ask them right here!
Here are some photos taken of us for Christmas! Enjoy! 🙂
My Beautiful Family ❤
Smooshy Face Kennedy!
Do you like my green tights?! lol
No smiles from Kennedy today!
That’s all for today! I love them all so far! 🙂
