Shaklee

I have been debating buying this to help clean our home for sometime now - but with the wedding and grad schools are budget is tight and the initial investment of Shaklee scares me because I have never tried it! A wonderful woman Kriss who I know through internet land has started to sell it. And she is having a giveaway!! Go visit her - read her blog and story (She has 3 amazing kiddos through adoption)... If you have tried any Shaklee product, let me know - I am interested in hearing what you have to say!!

Good Sunday Morning

Well the countdown is less that ONE week. I am sure all of you are over reading about my giddy, super excitement but... well... tough. I am going to catch you up on randoms today, and hope to post everyday this week to help me remember everything. Lofty goals.

1. We got our bands yesterday, they had been on layaway for quite some time - and we picked them up. I also had to give them my engagement ring so they could sauter them together. I feel naked.  Justin didn't want fancy or diamonds in his (ummm, why not? was my question??) but I now have to guard his band until Saturday - not like I haven't been losing things left and right this week.

2. We also purchased this yesterday. So far so good :)


3. Does anyone else ever feel like they are eating sour cream when they eat Greek Yogurt? It is so stinkin' thick (I love it, don't get me wrong) but some times it is too thick. 




4. Today we are going to a place called Candy Land. We need candy for the candy bar and what better of  a spot than Candy Land. That is if we could ever get moving. 


5. I still need earrings for Saturday. I only work one day this week so I will be trying to find some ASAP. I don't usually wear earrings so I doubt they stay in the whole night, but I am going to try!

6. If you didn't know I AM soooo excited :)

10 nights.

Ten. 1-0. That's how many sleeps I have as a Miss. not a Mrs. - I can't believe it. Every day I get a little more excited, a little more happier and a little more in shock... Shock that I get to marry my best friend. The person I know that will be by my side no.matter.what!


Wedding plans are coming to a halt. Florist, DJs and caterers are making final calls to me and we are in full swing. 


I work this week and only Tuesday next week ( I work 4-10s, I have off every Monday). I am a sappy mess. I am so ready to start this new chapter in our book, but I am also very sappy and emotional. I swear I am keeping Kleenex's stock up.


Cake has finally been decided. First Song, I can't tell... but it is perfect. I have a few surprises for my soon to be hubs that I can't post - I have wedding stuff that I want to post too, but I can't post till after our day is complete.

I promises pictures soon after the wedding!

18 days before the wedding

We have 18 days to go. 18. Excuse me while I have a bit of a panic attack. Over nothing and everything.

The to-do list is growing, my anxiety over the top and my excitement to marry my best friend, well it is over flowing. I can't wait.

Things are almost together, and the things that aren't are things I can't work on right now.

I have lots of friends (IRL and blogger) that are recently newlyweds and some of you that have been married for years. I am asking now for your last minute advice - what you wish you would have done different or wish someone would have told you.

Don't hold anything back - I would love to hear whatever advice you have.

Randoms....


 

1. My goodness is it HOT!!! If i is going to be this hot, I need to be in our pool, cold drink in hand floating. Not sitting in my temperature rising office.







 2.  Tomorrow we are going to see these folks.It is supposed to be 90+ degrees so the SUN tour is right. I am sure I will not be posting pictures of my sweaty, smelly self after the concert. But none the less we will have fun with our friends and two other couples.
3. My 2nd bridal shower is Sunday. I am so stinking excited - I love seeing people who are happy for us and help us celebrate! We are going to eat good food, drink good drinks and just celebrate. And, not that is about presents, because IT IS NOT. But I stalk my registry. I may have an obsession!

4. Our invites went out this week. I absolutely loved them. Not bragging but I think they turned out perfect - for us! And a little PSA - if you get invited to an event and someone even puts postage on the RSVP card for you -- RETURN IN :) My OCD seating chart needs them back. We already have had people RSVP and that makes me super excited. I am excited to share our day with our loved ones.

5. 5 weeks away, folks. 5 weeks away from marrying my best bud. 

6. We go get my dress Monday, it is bustled and ready for my butt to get in it. I may not take it off Monday :) Well I will, because I want it to be a surprise, but I can't wait to wear it.

7. I am not sure if being this happy is normal. But I am. Be prepared for lots more wedding jabber because it is all.I.Think.About :)

Funk....

Things are going OK and life is busy. Nothing seems off but everything seems so hectic and life isn't slowing down. I am pretty sure all the extras and stress of life I am in a funk. I know it sounds silly because life is going so well, but I am just not feeling 100% like myself. Never mind that my period cycles are so screwy and I think I should be starting any day now - that stress and hormonal craziness. Running is going Ok, we are not going every other night like I'd hope for but we are going. And for some reason this time, I am hating the thought of going. I used to love my run nights. Crave them. This time, I cry, kick and scream before heading outside. Poor Justin. I am not sure what is going on.

I am sure that in a few weeks things will get back to normal, and I can't wait. I am just wondering and making sure I am not alone in getting funks?

Thursday....

It is absolutely gorgeous outside today. It is the perfect spring day and I am stuck inside my office until 6. So is life!

We are slowly getting settled into our new house. All is well there! We love being close to work, school and our friends! We do, however, miss Justin's grandparents!

Wedding stuff is coming along rather nicely! I think we found our table numbers today! I am very excited and ready to marry my love! 2 months and 2 weeks away! I can't wait :) My dress is in, we will go to pick it up Monday! I would love to share a picture, but can't until after the big day! Flowers are picked out, dress is bought, tuxes done, food has been tested (oh my is it yummy!), table decor and lines picked - everything is done... I think.

I need to look into a portable microphone system and talk to a minster still.  And the portable AC units are causing me some grief so we will see what happens.

Justin officially signed his letter of employment - he has an official full time job. We are just waiting for the start date. We are figuring sometime next week!

My job is is still going well and I am really excited about the possibilities of some stuff in the future!

We spent a great Mother's Day with my mom, dad, grandpa, brother and Justin and I. Everyone came to our house and we just enjoyed being together. It was simple and low key! I made these and they turned out perfect! I was so excited to use my new Kitchen Aid Mixer :) (I love it BTW)

We are looking forward to a busy Saturday but relaxing Sunday filled with SUNSHINE!!! I can't believe May is almost over!

I want to give up....

Tonight we did our C25k week 2 day 1.  I have never wanted to quit so badly as I did tonight. It sucked. I am slower than I was the last time I completed this program. I have more aches and more pains and just more fat to carry around.

I know I can't give up. I won't give up this time either. But today as I was running I started to think about all the reasons I wanted to lose weight.... and let's be honest they are the most important things in my life.


  1. Justin - he deserves a healthy wife and someone who can do physical activity - we deserve health and happiness together
  2. My own health - I want a long and happy life
  3. For my family - they want me happy and healthy
  4. And for our kids. I want kids. I can't wait to embark on parenthood with Justin but I refuse to do it until I lose a lot of weight and become healthier - sidenote, it will be over a year before we even think of trying but it will take me over a year to be healthy!
I am struggling right now with the willpower to keep going. And if it wasn't for Justin tonight, I would have been all caught up on Real Housewives.... 

I know this feeling of giving up will pass, and in a few more runs I will have my enthusiasm back - I do have to admit, I feel great after tonight's run and I know that I want to keep doing this. I want healthy more than I want to quit!

Thankful Thursdays

- My mom. As Mother's Day weekend approaches I can't help but be a little sad for both her and my dad (and me too) as they deal with the not having their moms. I am so thankful to have my mom (she is coming to spend Sunday with me) and Justin's mom in my life. Our moms are so different but so much alike. They both are very strong and have changed me for the better.

- My Chickie. We are approaching the one year mark. I am not sure that is possible. 

- My Nan. We are approaching her two year mark. I am not sure that is possible. 

- All of the women in my life. I hope everyone has a great weekend with the special women in their lives! 

If you want to see what others are thankful for go visit Rebecca.....

Hey hormones, get a grip....

I have cried not once but twice today over internet videos. Seriously, hormones... get it together! We started back at C25k yesterday. Day 1 was tough but it was awesome! It felt good to get back out there and feel the burn! If you haven't heard of Rockmyrun.com - check it out. Now some of the songs are very explicit. Check out the label if you aren't a fan of nasty lyrics :) There are many clean playlists and each playlist cost usually under 5$. I am a huge fan! Has anyone used a fitbit? If so - thoughts?  Debating a one - I really like the sleep monitoring feature!


The house is coming together... I guess. We still have lots of boxes to unpack but I am trying not to freak out and get overwhelmed. When you look at the big picture - none of that stuff matters. Tonight we are having Rebecca and her husband over for dinner - I am sure they won't mind boxes :) Right guys?

We had a fun filled weekend with wedding stuff. We got to taste test our food - I am super excited to eat the yummy food! And we got tuxes ordered and our vendors paid. I feel better about that stuff!

I hope everyone had a great day :) Tuesday is almost over!

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday...

This Thursday, more than ever, I need to give thanks.

A phone call this morning that will change our life for the better. Justin got a work related call that I can't talk about yet. But it is a huge relief, prayer answered and blessing.

A move. The move is almost done. We will spend Friday night back at Justin's parents house (they are in Florida) and finish up packing some stuff in the basement and attic.

The move puts me 5 miles from work *4.7* but who is counting and puts Justin about 20 from his new job. So thankful!

Being able to help organize an awesome fund raiser for Timmy's Fund

And lastly. Justin. Because he really is the best. We are going out to celebrate with his friends tonight the end of the semester. I am so proud of him and his hard work. Everyday I see our dreams getting closer and closer!

Over a month

I can't believe it has been over a month, oh who am I kidding - life has been crazy busy.  And it appears life won't slow down for another month or so - or until after August.

We are moving back to Morgantown. We are both excited and happy that we found a house that has a nice big fenced in yard and close enough to the interstate for Justin and close enough to work for me.  Instead of driving 75 miles a day I will do 10. Our gas budget thanks me!

Justin has had some very promising interviews for a summer internship, we are just waiting for formal paperwork so he we can start the next chapter in our lives.

Wedding planning is going well. Thanks Mom.

Weight isn't. We will be in our new house in less than a month. I will be joining a gym and using the rail trails. No excuses.

Work is going well. I am excited for the summer!!

I hope everyone has a great weekend :) I am going home to my parents for the night to go to a friend's babyshower.

    • -I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend!

Our Story, Part One

I hadn't had the best luck with relationships prior to Justin. No one could live up to my (everyone told me) unrealistic expectations and no one swept me off my feet. I didn't want to settle....

My good friend Rebecca had this step cousin she wanted to set me up with. Now, she had tried once before setting me up - we both laugh about it now and can agree that that guy has serious issues - and it failed miserably. So I was skeptic to say the least. Her step cousins also worked with my brother and he confirmed he was a good guy . So one summer day I was sitting in the work parking lot waiting on my brother when he came up to talk to me. Now, I already knew that Rebecca was trying to set us up, I wasn't sure if he did or not - so I played it cool. We talked briefly and he headed on his way. I didn't tell Rebecca but I instantly had a school girl crush :) We unofficially talked via twitter for a few days prior to our big meet up, September 1, 2010. We are all HUGE WVU fans and love anything football so a group of us decided to meet to see a local sportscast with our head coach and WVU famous Sports Announcer Tony Caridi. You can read about that night here. 

That night, he made me laugh and I thought it he was cute but I wasn't sure how he felt about me.  Saturday, - September 4, 2010 was opening game. Justin just happened to show up at the same tailgate where I was and left with my brother to go to the game.... Yeah, that's right he left with my brother to go to the game. I rolled my eyes and told him if he wanted to hang out with me during the game to come and sit with me :) 4th quarter he come strolling down to hang out and walk me back to my car. It was a hot day and I parked on top of  a mountain it seemed. I was struggling getting back when Justin turned around and said to me "aren't you supposed to run a 5k tomorrow...you should be able to keep up"... for some reason his smile and sarcasm won me over. I knew he was kidding and the way he smiled, as corny as it sounds, made me like him even more.

The following football game was an away game - I invited him and some other friends over to my aprt to watch and hang out. The game ended well and Justin stayed till 3am laying on the couch talking to me. I was on the love seat trying to keep my eyes open while he talked... I can't tell you a thing we talked about that night but I knew I loved every minute of it :)

We continue to hang out and do things together - but he was killing me. It had been days and weeks of hanging out together and he still hadn't kissed me. My best friend staged scenarios where it would HAVE to happen, still nothing. Nothing NOTHING. So on week 3 I decided to give it one more try - if he didn't kiss me I knew he wanted to be just friends and so we would be.  I ordered Chinese, put on True Blood and hoped for the best. Nothing had happened  so when I walked him to his Jeep I was still hopeful but prepared to go in the house and cry.  It started to sprinkle some warm rain right as he went in for the kiss. It was well worth it....

Wedding & Life

Life has been hard the past few weeks. Justin and I are fine, nothing like that. Just a pretty big stress that isn't blog appropriate. We are moving along and things are ok, but we have been tired, stressed and anxious.  If you could would you keep us in your prayers?

Wedding plans are moving smoothly. Things are really coming together and we are pretty much under budget. Which excites my parents :) We have fun stuff left to do - order tuxes, my dress, register, pick out wedding bands, etc.

We have our DJ, venue, photographer, the food is almost done and the table rentals. I just can't wait to spend the rest of my life married to best friend.

Less than 6 months...

13.9

That's how many pounds I am down. I am hopeful that next Monday will bring 1.1lbs at least so I can be at the 15lbs mark.

I have 44.1lbs left before I want to try on a wedding dress. I am hoping that by the end of May I will be close enough to try on a dress. That gives me 4 months. I know I can do this. Weight Watchers is such an awesome program, if you are on the fence or considering it - I whole heartily say DO IT!



One of the things I really need to start doing is getting active. I have the treadmill, it is just at my parents. I am hoping come March I will be able to start running C25k again . I have to get moving!

Do you have any tips on how to move in the winter? What about weight watcher recipes?

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Monday's Weigh In...

Guess who lost 8lbs on her first week?  Guess what amazingly awesome boyfriend faince lost 8lbs, too. Yeah, that's right.... me and the future hubs......

My wonerful momma also hit her 40lbs mark this week! So stinkin proud of ALL of us!

First week of WW (almost)

Well tomorrow is the dreaded weigh in. I have done well for the most part and surprisingly I feel better just after one week of trying to move more, eat less and drink a lot more water. I had a few weak moments this week and with the start of AF I knew it would be tough, I did ok though and made it through. I have been making better choices and really thinking twice before eating anything. I am nervous, anxious and excited to step on the scale tomorrow.

Today we are taking Justin's mom back to the airport. I am not sure if we will stop at IKEA or do any shopping - it is a little too cold for anything outdoors if you ask me (8 degrees here).

The snow ruined our plans to go home to see my parents and get the treadmill. I have to start moving more. I felt so much better when I was active! How do you cold weather girls stay active in the winter? Any tips?

I am doing a guest post this week for one of my favorite weight loss blog. I am excited to share more of my story on her site and hopeful that I will in turn gain some support!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I have to do a teacher's in-service tomorrow :( So no Monday off for me! I will gladly go back to my 4/10s next week though!

Have a great day!!

I thought I'd be a lot more stressed and anxious about everything but strangely I am really calm! I am just anxious to start the next journey with my best friend.....

Project 365 .... Week 1 (1-1-12-1-7-12)

Until (hopefully next week) we get Photoshop, I am going to post my pictures in a collage that isn't my first choice, but it will work! I still have a lot to post about and will get to it soon! But for now, here is week one of 2012.

 
Jan 1st - We spent the day at the beach - Justin did some surf fishing and I read a magazine. We were very thrilled to ring in 2012 in the sun and at the beach!
Jan 2nd - pictures and words can't even begin to explain this day. I am such a very lucky girl!
Jan 3rd - our Bowl game tickets finally got delivered! We were ecstatic!


Jan 4th - The final score of the Orange Bowl game. WVU 70 Clemson 33. What an awesome game to be at. It was really an amazing WVU sporting experience!
Jan 5th - Justin and his dad went to Peir fishing while his Mom and I had a spa day
Jan 6th - Our last day at the beach.
Jan 7th - Buster in the back ready to come home!

RING LINK UP


Ha, how appropriate! Today I am linking up to show off my ring :)

Justin gave me it yesterday morning, sunrise on the beach. It was absolutely perfect. I will share the full story soon!

I picked out my ring on a whim. I fell IN LOVE with it the minute I saw it and he picked it up in August and made me wait till our vacation to Florida on a perfect sunrise morning to propose.

Vacation...all I ever wanted...





He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring
And said, marry me Juliet
You'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
It's a love story baby just say yes
