High School Reunion

As I mentioned in my last post, this weekend was my high school reunion. It was a blast & it was so great to hang out with friends. Here are a few pictures from the weekend’s festivities! Continue reading

Final Guest List

I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was my 10 year high school reunion & I had a blast seeing everyone who showed up. I did put my Paleo diet on the sidelines for the weekend and gorged on delicious food & far more alcoholic beverages than I should have had. As a result I am painfully hungover today. Somehow, I managed to rally despite the hangover & got quite a few wedding related tasks completed.

Lovely Lavender

I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I’ve mainly been finishing up existing projects such as:

• five more cupcake stands
• collecting more silver platters for the dessert table
• tying together (literally) our Save-the-Dates information

One new “project” that I am working on, if you would like to call it that, involves dried lavender. I have been stressing out about the floral aspect of our wedding pretty much since we got engaged. I was completely unwilling to spend hundreds of dollars on flowers that are going to die soon after the wedding. I initially thought I would go with pearl bouquets, but that ended up being really, really time consuming and they weren’t turning out as I had hoped. Then I thought maybe the bridesmaids could carry something non-floral… lanterns were leading the way in that race. Next, I decided that I would just buy a bunch of flowers the day before the wedding & do a quick, random bouquet and hope for the best.

30 Days, 17 Pounds

30 days of Paleo eating & I am down 17 pounds in a single month. 27 pounds overall. I am so pleased with these results. If you’re at all overweight & you’ve struggled with diets in the past, give Paleo eating a try. I promise you will not regret it! 30 days & I was never hungry… Towards the end I cheated after several cupcake dreams, but I still lost 17 pounds. My plan for now is to eat Paleo 80% of the time, cheat 20% for the next week, then do another 100% a Paleo round after my 10 year height school reunion this weekend, in hopes of getting closer to my ultimate goal. With 27 down, I still want to lose 53 more pounds. It may no all be achievable prior to the wedding, but I am going to try my hardest to get as close to my goal weight as I can. 27 down is a awesome start and I know I can do even better in the next 8 months!

PS. Jason & I have been engaged for one year today! 365 days down, 251 to go until we’re in ally married!

Hotel Block Help Needed

So awhile back I set up a block of rooms at a hotel near our wedding venue. They have great prices for the area & a free shuttle to & from the hotel, so I was happy to have easily marked the task off my to-do list. I put the information for the hotel in our wedding invitations & we were all set.
