Life

Standard

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!

Life Lately

Standard

Kennedy turned 9 months old on Saturday the 10th!! Oh man this is going by WAY fast. She is close to crawling (which we didn’t think she would because she would MUCH rather stand) and soon to follow will probably walking. Also, do you see those teeth?!?! We are going to her appointment tomorrow morning so I will let you know how large my 9 month is (the size of at least a 1-year-old) haha. And speaking of, we went to a local mall here on Saturday. The cow was out and about…*side note* I am not a fan because the restaurant is against gay marriage and use profits to fight it (their food also makes me vomit post weight loss surgery), I did think it would be funny to let Kennedy get up close. Her only interest….to feel him up HAHA.

In other news, I have NOT heard from my brothers. I don’t know if they ever check FB or maybe they don’t want to talk, which is fine. They are still younger than me and probably not in the same spot as I am (mom, engaged, etc.) But I will try again later! I won’t lose hope! 🙂

On to other things, can you believe its 13 days until Christmas?! I am so excited! We went to a birthday party tonight ( Happy 40th Birthday Chris!) and saw SO many beautiful homes decorated to the trees! It was so beautiful! I LOVE this time of the year! I hope Kennedy loves it as much as I do :-). Anthony’s dad had me convinced to run a 5k this Saturday and have post race cinnamon rolls that he is going to make (yum!)…it is a Ugly Sweater 5k but he thought it was free to run as long as you had on an ugly sweater (similar to the Turkey Trot where you bring a can of food to run) but its $30…which is not a bad race price but this momma is broke! haha. Maybe next year! BTW, I have NOT run since September but starting in January, Anthony and I are training for the Denver Marathon in October! Woo Hoo! Bring it on 26 miles! I will make you my bitch 🙂
