Wedding Arms, Buying a House, and Waking up Early…
I have been in a bit of a funk lately, and I am finally feeling a little more like myself. Wedding plans are on the back burner…we are getting close to being able to book our venue, which honestly- just gives me anxiety. SO once I get that solidified, not sure how its going from there.
My focus these days is “Wedding Arms”!! You see, although my entire body seems to be a bit of its own story, my arms have never been known for their slenderness. Since I will be wearing a strapless wedding gown, and hopefully taking engagement photos soon, I think it is time to start focusing on getting into shape. I have been waking up at 5:00am and heading to the gym for “Bodypump” which is a total body, muscle confusion, weight-lifting class…and, it ROCKS! I used to be a regular back in the day and you could bounce a quarter…well, you know what I mean. I have been to 3 classes this week and I plan on continuing until I am back to buff.
So decided to take a picture of my fat arm, so we have something to compare it to when my arms are cut.
Oh yes—my NEW FAVORITE LIPSTICK— Mac “So Chaud” is the perfect orangey-red matte I have been searching for. In love.
Now for other things…we have been really wanting to buy a house lately. Not sure if it is because all of our close friends are buying (brand-new, amazing, gorgeous) homes, or if I am just tired of my shitty apartment? I just think: “I would like to live somewhere where I am not worried about my patio furniture being stollen, or I would like to not hear my upstairs neighbor take a piss”…seriously! Matt is convinced the walls are closing in on us…and I think he is on to somethin.
Well, I really sympathize (I know, I probably say this a lot) with my clients who are trying to pay for a wedding and buy a house. It is incredibly stressful and feels like to have to sacrifice one of your children! Shitty house or shitty wedding? Or, on my paycheck—probably both…or none. I will stop my boo-hooing, but I am just really trying to be optimistic about our future–which I am so excited about!! No matter what kind of dump I live in, or white trash wedding I have—I still get to live with and marry the biggest blessing in my life. Which makes me the luckiest person in the world!
*sniff* *sniff* knock it off!!! Gotta go to work.
