Wedding Traditions

So I am planning my wedding which will take place in about two years. My ideal date is 9/10/11. The idea of me having a wedding is very new to me. I wasn't that little girl dreaming of the perfect day. I was that little girl thinking about going to law school and making money. I was seriously convinced that I was never going to get married. My sister Nicole even told me once that she never thought I would get married and that I would just be rich and travel the world. Gee thanks Nicole. However, when I met Paul that all changed. I know love at first sight seems very cliché but the moment I saw him I knew he was the one for me. I just hoped it wasn't the universe toying with my emotions and that he felt it to. I will NEVER forget our first date. Even more I will NEVER forget the first time he said that he loved me. I was in my typical frantic getting ready for work mode running around getting all my stuff together and trying to get headed out the door. I said bye and he said bye I love you. I walked outside and stopped and thought to myself. Did he just say he loved me? I walked back in and said what did you say...he said I said I love you. I said I love you too. Having said all that I not one for a big traditional wedding. Sure I want to have a pretty dress and a ceremony but to me simple and chic is the key. Oh yeah and cheap. So simple, chic and cheap! So in going the simple route I am seriously considering forgoing bridesmaids, maid of honor, flower girls, etc. Also, I'm also leaning towards walking alone down the aisle. However, this morning I watched Kardashian Wedding and Khole considered having her brother instead of her stepfather walk her down the aisle. Her thoughts were that her brother reminded her of her deceased father and in a way it would be like her father walking her down the aisle. Well her stepfather has been in her life since she was 5 years old. So he was upset for being left out. It made me think about my stepfather. Sure my sister Nicole has already gotten married and he walked her down the aisle, but would he be upset if I didn't ask him. Believe me he's been my true father since I was about 7 years old or maybe even younger. But being simple, chic and CHEAP does not mean that I have to cut my stepdad out of the ceremony. The heck with my sisters being bridesmaids or maids of honor...they'll get over it. I just wouldn't want to make the terrible mistake of hurting my stepdad. So get ready're walking me down the aisle!

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
