Misc. Monday

Happy Monday!  Today, I'm linking up with Carissa at Lowercase Letters for another Miscellany Monday.

I had a great time with Corey here this weekend. We went shopping (his treat!) and I got some new summer clothes. We had some yummy meals and got to spend some time outside yesterday with Riley. During our shopping trip we went to the J. Crew outlet, where I usually spend entirely too much money, and almost everything I wanted was sold out in my size. Don't you just hate when that happens?

While Corey was here we also went to take a look at a couple of my favorite reception venues. I'm going to have a consultation for one of these later in the week (what I think will be my favorite) but he won't be able to come so I wanted his opinion.  I'm ready to make venue choices and put some deposits down so we have a definitive date!
one possible reception venue.

I've finally talked Corey into taking engagement pictures and I am going to try to get some scheduled for his next visit in June. He has not been keen on this idea but I really like photo Save the Dates and I want to do a photo guest book. My previous plan was to be sneaky and schedule them behind his back and force him to go. This was a situation where I thought it might be better to ask forgiveness than permission. Now, though, he's excited to have them taken. :)

I'm do not ready to go back to work today. I love my class and my kids are super sweet but first graders really wear you out sometimes! Whew - I'm taking a nap immediately after work. Then finishing my final term paper. Yuck!

I really want to tone up for the wedding. In my pageant and cheerleading days I was always very physically fit. During the last year, I feel like I have worked out less frequently and not eaten as healthy - lots of take-out and cupcake after cupcake for my students' birthdays. Anyone have some workout program suggestions? I'm not a big dieter. I just can't deny myself cheesecake for several months so I always lose weight through exercise. I've been interested in P90X. Has anyone tried it? Any other suggestions?


  1. Glad you had a great weekend. Where is that reception venue? Gorgeous.

  2. Leigh - its the Ballantyne Resort! I love it! :)

  3. Wow, that is a gorgeous reception venue! I hope you make a decision soon :)

  4. That would be such a pretty reception venue! I hope it works out for you :)

    I've tried the P90X, but I didn't really like it all that much. You need a lot of equipment to be able to do the exercises as they do them for optium results. They have alternate exercises if you don't have the equipment, but I don't see how you can get the same results.

  5. Thanks for letting me know. I've never been there.


Thank you for stopping by!
