Random Thoughts Thursday

This is seriously the longest week EVER! Working 6 days is never fun and I thought today was Friday when I woke up. Booo - plus I have a double wedding Saturday and will probably be working about 14 hours. J's bachelor party is this weekend, so I will have the house to myself...I see a lot of sleeping in my future for Sunday!

A few of you had questions about my bridal shower and bachelorette pictures...

My friend R got that monogrammed burgee from a local embroidery store that is owned by one of our friends... I'm sorry that's probably not very helpful! I know you can order plain burgees online at sailing supply stores and can get it monogrammed anywhere.

My bachelorette party dress actually came from TJ Maxx - again not very helpful! I got it there about 2 months ago. I had originally bought it for our honeymoon, but realized it would be perfect for the bachelorette party. To be honest, I don't even know what brand it is - but it was only like $19.99.

I had my 3rd personal training session last night and I can't move my arms today. Just typing this hurts! He's definitely stepped up the intensity and I was sweating so much last night!! He also told me I'm one of his whiniest clients - ha! He had me doing some insane stuff last night, so I think I have a right to whine about some of it. I have my first dress fitting this Sunday, so I know all that work will pay off!

Speaking of that - I'm still running my butt off (hopefully literally!) and starting August 1st I'm cutting out a bunch of stuff from my diet. #1 being Coke Zero - ahhhhh! I only drink 1 a day, but that 1 is like the best 10 minutes of my day, seriously! But I need to do it, diet soda is really bad and makes you bloated. I'm also going to attempt to cut out candy, but not all dessert! I need my ice cream!

I also went and picked up my wedding band yesterday! I LOVE it so much - I wish I could wear it NOW! It matches my e-ring, so it's just a thin band with small channel set diamonds around it. We have to take it back in a few weeks for the store to engrave both mine and Jake's - we are getting each other's initials and the date...very traditional.

Did anyone watch SYTYCD last night? I finally caught up and I have to say - I'm loving Brandon and Jeanine. Brandon hasn't always been my fave, but he was amazing last night. I'd like to see Evan and Melissa go home tonight - they are both sort of blah to me. I love when they get down to the end because all the dances are SO incredible!

J and I need to start with dance lessons - eek! We're not going to do a full choreographed dance, we just need help so we don't look like idiots and step all over each other. Our first dance song is Ray Lamontagne, "You are the best thing"...does anyone know it? I'm in LOVE with that song - its sort of jazzy/bluesy. If you haven't heard it, I recommend downloading it, it's beautiful! Hopefully we will look good dancing to it!

Wow, longest, most random blog ever! Just some inspiration that I keep staring at lately:
LOVE these flowers - crossing my fingers that my florist tells me she can get ranuculus when I meet with her next week!

Holy smokes girl you are busy!!! Way to stick with it at the gym! I gave up Diet Coke about 6 months ago, and after the first two weeks did not look back! You can do it! But I am with you, I will never have any will power when it comes to ice cream!

OMG! We have the same first dance song!!!! I am in love with that song and play it all the time and imagine my sweetie and I dancing to it. We aren't doing anything choreographed either but have been practicing a few steps so we don't just stand there and sway :)

Hi! I was browsing your blog and came across a picture of your bachelorette party dress. It's absolutely perfect and what I've been scouring over the internet looking for months! I know you have been asked 100 times where you got it. You mentioned TJ Maxx. Can you please look on the tag to see who makes it (label)? It would mean a lot to me. Thanks again and it looks like you had a beautiful wedding!
