Busy past few days

its monday and I feel like I am ready for the weekend again. I had a great weekend, but it was very very busy. Thursday we met with the pastor and he approved to marry us, so the date is Oct. 16th, 2010 which coincidentally is Sweetest Day. The chuch is so beautiful and was a perfect decision. We had then looked at a reception hall in the area which I loved and really wanted more than the place we had visited on the previous Tuesday. Unfortunately you needed 180 people min. to book a room and we werent going to have that many. I was dispointed especially since it was so close to the church and two hotels. However they did have another location with 150 people min, so on Friday we went there. It was just what I wanted, and I even was able to book the one room with a double staircase instead of just a single staircase to make my grand entrance in. Love it! Unfortunately we were hit by some horrible storms when leaving which soaked us and made us late to dinner with our friends. I then returned home to find that I had no power and had to make it through all these hallways to get to my apartment in the pitch black. Then the power came on at 330 and then the fire alarms went off so we had to all evacuate in the middle of the night. Definitely was not a fun evening.

Weight is still the same as last Wednesday, 158.8. Im disapointed its not down more after TOM is over, but Ive worked hard all weekend at eating right and getting in exercise, so I dont think there is much more that I could have done. I did go to the gynecologist today and she said "and your weight is still the same..." which disapointed me because it would have been nice to hear after a year "oh youve lost some more weight!". But it is what it is.

I feel pretty good though. Ive booked the church and the reception hall within a month of getting engaged so I think that is pretty awesome. I feel a lot of stress relieved and now I can take some time to work out the other details and not feel as rushed about it all.

The reception hall looks beautiful! And hey, on the weight front, maintaing for a year is wayyy better than gaining. So congrats on that, sometimes a maintain is a win too!

WOW that reception hall looks stunning and you can do it in your chosen colours and put your own spin on it. You have taken me right back and made me nostalgic with the date of 16th October (I got married on 14th October).

Thank you for letting us share your journey - it is so very exciting.

Best of luck and you are right you have done well getting the reception and church booked. You can crack on with choosing your dress now :-)
