So I'm not a regular gym goer. I'm trying but its not working very well. :(

I did some weights Friday night and I feel like the weakest person. My upper body is in pain and I had the machines mostly on the first (lowest) weight. I know, wimpy.

After a late Saturday night out with the girls (thanks for a good evening!), I woke up at 7:30 for some brekkie and then running at 8:30. I think I morphed into a tortoise as that was absolutely one of my worst runs ever! 13K felt like a lifetime, especially in the snow. Now my left ankle is sore. :( Can someone please remind me again why I choose to run?

Makeup and Hair Trial

I had my trial Saturday with Marie from Beauty on the Go and I really liked it!

Love the hair and the makeup is nice. I was looking more for blushing bride pink but that didn't go with my colouring so let's go with what works and still looks good.

No free honeymoon! :(

The contest ended yesterday and we didn't win. We didn't even make it to the top three couples. I guess we're not that perfect after all. Lol.

Oh well, in a way, I'm glad we didn't win. They never announced the destination and Shaun and I really wanted to go to Negril, Jamaica. I saved my points to fly us there business class too and likely, the free trip would have been economy/coach. Not that that's bad just not what we wanted for our honeymoon. I'm also such a foodie that if we got a trip to Cuba or something, I would have starved and been grumpy. Anyway, congrats to the winning couple and thanks to everyone who voted for us.

I'm just glad that's over with! I like to know things and planning can now continue. My bridesmaids are planning a shower for me early March and the theme is Honeymoon so hopefully we'll have some gifts off the honeymoon registry.

Flatware is picked out!

Why is registering so hard? Everytime we go to the Bay or Home Outfitters or even going online at Canadian Tire, we only register for ONE thing. This time, we picked out our flatware and it took about an hour!

Here it is:
It's Oneida Couplet.

Now we have to decide on crystal. Yikes!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I took a Christmas/New Year's break from blogging but I'm now back...

What did I do during the break?
  • I got my eyes lasered! Yes, I now have perfect vision in my right eye and close to perfect vision in my left
  • I started knitting a new tank top (I just finished Shaun's scarf and that took me 3 years!) - let's see when I can get that done
  • Ate and drank wayyy to much (let's say yesterday was big time recovery day).
What do I have to get done this month?
  • Get my hair cut and coloured
  • Have my bridal hair and makeup tria on the 20th
  • Start a new HR course (HR planning and development)
  • Start a new running clinic - doing the Marathon clinic but not running a marathon - got three races planned before the wedding!
  • Do some recruiting - the second round of busy season is starting. :( Hopefully, not as much travelling as the fall.
  • Do more wedding planning! Only five and a half months away!
