Dress and new diet!


So last week, I told you about a dress I totally loved. Well last Friday, I had the day off from work and my friend did as well. She is getting married in June. I asked her if she would come with me to check out the dress. So we drove up there and I looked like a pyscho because I had just been there the night before. I asked to try on the top 2 dresses and I did. My friend loved my Casablance dress on me. We added a belt to it and it looked beautiful. It actually looked better in daylight than it did when I first tried it on the night before. I love the dress!!!! I'm not looking anywhere else and when my mother comes back from Italy, I'm going to drag her there to see it. Here is the dress:

So I don't look anything like this model but I can say that this dress looks better on me :)

I know it is plain but add a belt and it looks unbelievable.

NOW.... The fiance and I are taking engagment pictures on Oct. 7th. And since I carry the weight in my face, I'm on a mission to loose some weight. I'm 5'2" and I weigh about 134lbs. I'm on the heavier end of my frame. I need to loose the jiggile on my thighs, tummy and arms. So I'm getting my fat thighs out of bed tomorrow at 4:50am and getting to spin class at 5:30.

Wedding Dress shopping

I went shopping for my wedding dress tonight! What a workout!
I'll make it quick, I wanted something kinda trendy. However, trendy does not work for me. The best dress I put on was absolutely plain and the sales person put a belt on me. Awesome! I love the dress. My sister and friend said I should really look at more places though. Well I guess, its just so time consuming. Grrr....

Rain, Rain and more Rain

I've been lacking on my posts (Anyone miss me????)
Very busy few days, my parents are getting ready to leave tomorrow for their month long trip. Loving forward to having some peace and quiet in the house. I'll actually be able to do somethings that will not include remarks from my parents :) Do you think there are too many adults in this house? You thought right.

My fiance and I have thought about how our future will pan out in the next 13 months until our wedding. He has been over stressed these past few weeks (to the point where I started to worry) I stepped up and put my WOMAN foot down and decided we should hold off on the house hunt until after we are married. We will each spend the next few months at home saving money and at the end of next winter, we'll look for an apartment. I'm hoping the apartment hunt will go much better than the house hunt.

Anyways, rain rain and more rain its been in Boston. One good thing is that I've been hitting the sack a little early (something that I need to get back to doing) I even thought about going to spin tomorrow morning. (If I can get my butt up at 4:50am)

So I'm just going to walk my butt into bed now and watch a little TV before I go into dreamland.

Goodnight all.

Managing Stress!

Okay, my week so far... new software system at work (no one knows how to use it), wedding plans, and looking for a home, make-up appointments and social life. Seriously, shoot me. My hunny is off playing poker with friends so I am taking the night to just relax.
I got a mani and pedi after work (relaxing) and now I am going to tidy up a bit and get ready for bed early.
My parents are off to Switzerland and Italy at the end of this month so I'm planning a couple of get togethers at my house. I have about a 100 social favors to pay back. Anyways, I'm going to sit in bed and write out my menu for my little parties. I'm only going to have pickies and drinks. I'm trying to come up with ideas on quick, easy and cheap ways to make food. I have this book, The Taste of HOme Cookbook. I picked it up at Marshall's for $10 a few months ago. I haven't had the chance to use it since I picked it up. I'd love some ideas. Hopefully, the book helps.
Well I am off to get ready for bed, I am hoping to get my butt up early tomorrow. Not sure why I can't wake up in the morning.
Until next time....I'll let you know about my menu :)

Makeup and Food shopping

So today my friend was a bridesmaid in her brother's wedding. I was at her house to do her makeup. Check her out!

No, I did not do her hair but I do wish I could create that myself. It would save me a lot of money if I could.

So after I finished up with her I head to Stop & Shop for a little food shopping. I picked up these guys:

They aren't the cheapest snacks but they just taste so good. I want to put this in some basket or something but I don't have any good spot for them. Hopefully, I'll have my own place in the next 6-9 months. Living with my parents is okay, but there are just too many ADULTS in this house. Its about 5pm and I feel like I could just take a nap right now. The sun is in and out and its a little gloomy out there.

Late Workout!

I had a very late workout tonight. It is 9:28pm now and I just finished 15 minutes ago. I had family over and I couldn't get away from the kitchen table and then I had to clean it from top to bottom. I have the busiest day at work tomorrow and I am working late on top of that. So I knew there would be no way for me to get a workout in.
So I have a little motivation for this month, I have a wedding to attend on August 28th in Newport, RI. I'm wearing a one shoulder black dress. I think those dresses always look best on a slightly toned person. I know I'm not fat but I definitly need some major toning. I'm 28 years old and I don't have a child so I should be in the best shape of my life. Really, what excuse do I have??(Besides, planning a wedding, finding a house and trying to make money) That is just every day life (I'm tricking myself to think that)
Anyways, I'm tryin to jab it all in. It I feel like in a way I am neglecting my friends. I don't see them much but I feel that in order to accomplish what I need to accomplish in the next 14 months I have to be a little selfish. Now I know that absolutely NO ONE reads my posts so I guess you can just call this my online diary. Maybe one day someone a little wiser than me will give me some advise.
Until next time...

Ready to sleep

What a busy weekend I had! It was my fiance's birthday on Friday, I wish I took pictures but he wasn't feeling well so I didn't bother. He has been having issues with his stomach for about a year and half now. His stomach is off and on. He feels better today, thank godness.

So I spent my weekend nursing him and trying to tackle all weekend errands. Busy Busy.

So the good news is that I received my bridal shower invitations in the mail today. I had a my friend use photoshop and do some editing and I sent it to Snapfish to develope.

They look great.
