And just like that the long weekend is over boo hoo! It was really nice weather here on Saturday and Sunday- almost 70 degrees. We crossed a lot more wedding tasks off our to-do list…and quite frankly, I am totally over them. This Saturday is full of them again, but after that we’re pretty much done for a while. I’d rather focus on something else for a little!
We did, however, get our first wedding/engagement gift off our registry
It was just from my mom, but hey, it counts.
On Saturday, we took engagement photos for FIVE HOURS. I have a new respect for models…photo taking is exhausting. I did splurge though and got my hair done at Dry Bar (thedrybar.com), which is such a nice 45 minutes of pampering. I even got to watch the Sex and the City movie…girl heaven in there
My hair came out nice…or just much better than I would do on my own and the MAC store across the street did my eye makeup. Makes a diff for photos to get some extra help since I’m “challenged” and impatient in those areas.
The photo shoot was long, but I think we got a few nice shots. Will share them soon!!
Okay, fast forward to Monday Presidents Day. Here’s what I did…
Slept in…Charlie too
Avocado, eggs, dandy blend…and a banana that I ate right when I woke up
Quick dog walk
Hanging out in the car drinking a half caf Sbucks while Jared did a work errand (and I made sure we didn’t get a ticket….never sure if the zones are the same on this holiday or if the meter maids are going to come..)
Quick lunch from home….lentils, lettuce, etc
TWO and a half hours at the tux store (waayyyyy too long) helping my handsome fiancé pick out a tux for the wedding. I’m not really sure why it took so long, but it did. But he’ll look good so I suppose it’s all worth it
Guy have it so much easier than girls when it comes down to fit.
And since the tux fitting took so long, we had to zoom across town for a more fun wedding errand- the cake tasting! Good timing because I was hungry.
It wasn’t quite as involved of a tasting as some places and we just tried a few options to make our decision. We decided on a mix of vanilla and chocolate cake with caramel and Bavarian cream fillings…I *think* the combo will be good…will just to wait and see!
The rest of the afternoon (it was 4ish by the time we got back) was spent on a dog walk, entertaining Charlie, and sitting on the couch vegging watching tv. I ate leftover chicken with pesto, potatoes, and kale for dinner…was way too lazy to cook
And managed to go to the gym for weights and a quick workout. It was freezing everywhere so I stayed in my huge cozy sweatshirt
And then ate three rice crackers with strawberry jam….the end!
I probably always say this but I’m sad the weekend is over. I could still use one cozy day in bed reading..but oh well, Friday’s only 4 days away.
-How did you spend your day off?
-Dream cake flavors? Mine prob involves lemon and chocolate
- Do you have a big cozy oversized sweatshirt?
- Do your salons play movies?
