Successes Sunday: Week 8 & Wedding Updates

Goood eveninggg!  Sorry I’ve been MIA the past week but between having the procedure done on Monday, work, and wedding planning, my free time has been limited and the few spare moments I have had, I goofed around with Ryan, caught up with friends, or squeezed in a quick sweat session in at the gym…


BUT it’s a new week and I have a few exciting wedding updates to share!

-We booked a DJ…  Chris Laich

-I found THE DRESS…  Liancarlo

***This is not THE DRESS but it is an example of Liancarlo’s beautiful dresses***


-We met with a florist and chose our colors…  Pinks and orange


-Ryan chose his tux


-We met with a few photographers and were impressed by their backgrounds and portfolios

-We chose and ordered our save the date cards and wedding invitations… Tag & Company

To say that the past 7 days have been busy would be an understatement…  The past 7 days have been PACKED yet very PRODUCTIVE 😀  In sum…  Wedding planning = hard work!  We have a few more consultations this week and weekend with florists and photographers and have decided to hold off on meeting with bakers and the caterer until after we choose the other vendors.  


Successes Sunday

1.  Listen to my body.

My body has been in a complete funk since the liquid diet on Sunday and the procedure on Monday.  I have had little energy and nothing sounded better than relaxing on the couch and getting caught up in trashy reality shows.  I didn’t make it to the gym as often as I usually do but relaxation was what my body needed…

2.  Save money.

I didn’t do much shopping this week other than for groceries [and for the wedding].  I have been consistently cutting coupons from the circular on Saturday’s and keeping track of sales at our local grocery stores…  If I were to guess, I’ve saved about $15 or more each grocery trip!

3.  Train Charlie.

Everyday Ryan and I are laughing at something Charlie does!  For example, one of his favorite games is to “get dressed.”  When Ryan and I went to NYC, Charlie stayed at the PetsHotel.  We were advised to send in a couple of his favorite toys, as well as something that smelled like us so we sent him with one of Ryan’s undershirts.  Much to our surprise the shirt was returned in it’s original condition- we were convinced that it would get completely shredded!  Well since returning home, Ryan has been “dressing” Charlie in the shirt!  He has a great time rolling around and trying to get himself untangled…  It’s quite the sight!

P.S.  How does a food related post sound for tomorrow?  Sounds good to me!

Question:  Enough about me, what have YOU been up to?!

Question:  What are your two favorite colors?  Would you choose them for your wedding?  Pink and lime green are my two faves…
