Ow ow! Garter Time!

Today I found out my winning streak has continued (I haven’t even mentioned the birdcage veil or stationary I’ve won in the past few weeks either… Seriously, if you’re not entering wedding related giveaways while you’re engaged, get started now!). Today I found out I won a $25 etsy gift card & I knew exactly what to do with it.

A Week of Rest & Relaxation

I today is the first of nine days I have away from the office. I plan on giving the whole house an intense cleaning, painting the trim, spray painting the door handles throughout the house, & working on some wedding stuff. As far as wedding stuff goes I plan on working on some things for the dessert table, as well as finishing up some centerpiece stuff.

As an added bonus, my parents are coming into town this Friday-Sunday for my cousin’s wedding next Saturday. So excited to see them again! In all likelihood, this will be the last time I see them until they come out for the wedding next May, which kind of completely sucks… Mom, come out for my wedding shower, whenever it may be, please! Or just come to visit, because we all know winter in Ohio is something you’ll be missing dearly out in Phoenix.

I should be posting quite a few non-Paleo related updates this week, which I’m sure is a relief for anyone who wants to read more about wedding planning, less about my attempts to decrease the size of the wedding dress I have to order (ps. ordering that in October!!! So excited!). Sorry, I’ve had a one track mind lately with this diet – mainly because I’ve never had anything work so well, so quickly before. I’m holding steady at 21 pounds down today, for those that do care. 🙂

I hope everyone enjoys the holiday weekend! Get some rest & relaxation, & maybe just a little productiveness thrown in there for good measure!


Just a quick update… after 3+ months, I am finally down 20 pounds since I first began this whole weight loss adventure! 20.8 to be exact. Paleo is kicking Weight Watchers’ ass… The smallest amount of weight I have lost in 6 days is .6 pounds & I’ve lost 2 pounds overnight numerous times. I really haven’t had any cravings & I still have yet to be hungry once… honestly, I haven’t had any side effects other than the one faint headache I had a few days ago. I really think going Paleo has been the best decision I have ever made… Yes, even just 6 days in.

Has anyone else given Paleo a try yet?
