Fascinators! Fascinating!

My maids want to wear fascinators.  I want one, too!  Most likely just at the reception.

My secret weapons when going tropical:

Physicians Formula Pearls of Perfection Bronzer


L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Tanning Lotion


Natural Glow tanning lotion (for face)


Hopefully these will make me not so pasty white.  And I lost 3 lbs!

Weigh In


I am not weighing myself until Thursday. I sometimes obsessively weigh myself daily, bad idea.

I stuck to the diet except for an add of a 50 calorie piece of cheese at 6pm.  It was awesome.

Total:  1115 Calories.

I also worked out yesterday, I ran for 25 minutes alternating at 5.5 mph and 3.8 mph depending on heart rate, then hit the eliptical for 25 minutes.   According to my Heart Rate monitor, I burned 513 calories. 

Only 5 more days till:


Cabo Prep

6 days people.  I need to lose 3.5-5 lbs before we leave in 6 days.

Here is my emergency diet plan:

7am Breakfast:  Special K Waffle with Peanut Butter     200 calories

Coffee with sugar-free creamer                                    25 calories


10am Snack:  Light Yogurt                                                         70 calories

12pm Lunch:  Soup at Hand Chicken and Stars                  70 calories


3pm Snack:  Almonds and Cranberries trail mix             200 calories

6pm Dinner:  Lean Cuisine Entree                                          350 calories

8pm Dessert:  Ice cream sandwich                                         150 calories

Total                                                                                                  1065 calories

Do you think I can do it?  It’s only 6 days.

I think the hardest part will be the evening.  I always want a glass of wine in the pm.

Shhh. It’s a secret.

Don’t click if you don’t want to see it.  The dress! Continue reading

I found it.

I found a dress. Thank you for all of your emotional support.  Really.

I don’t have pictures just yet- waiting for Abby on that one.  We had a ton of fun at Beckers Bridal.  I would fully recommend it.  It was fab, and they called me Vogue.  Me, Vouge?  Fantastic.

This is the closest picture to the veil I bought I could find.


I also got red tulips for V-Day.  I am a lucky girl.


We are going with Toast and Jam for our Deejay.

Next:  Wedding Bands, Invitations, and Officiant.
