Check and CHECK.

I had a SERIOUSLY productive day today, and it was fun- which makes it the best possible kind of day. I woke up bright and early because I had blood drawn. Apparently my liver function test was off last time so I had to have it redone. I was supposed to abstain from alcohol for the past 4 weeks, but frankly I had two weddings so that did not quite happen. However, I rarely drink as it is so I am pretty sure my liver is not having problems because of my massive drinking habit. Hopefully this one will come back more normal.
After a quick snack I headed to spinning class. This class is shorter than the one I went to on Monday and SO much easier. It was nice in a way to have a break but I have to try to get to that Monday night one more often, it is so intense. I'm feeling a little bad that I brought my friend from work to that one for her first time since that was by far the hardest one I have been to. Oops. I just got Self, Fitness and Body and Soul October in the past two days so I am going to have to do some work outs that can involve magazine reading. I have a rule that magazines can only be read if I am walking on the treadmill or the elliptical or in some way exercising. Eric's school had a magazine fundraiser last year and teachers got a huge discount so we went a little crazy :)
Post work out I decided to clean the house. This summer I have been very lucky that Eric has done most of the housework but with him at football til all hours, I think this fall the housework is going to fall back into my hands so I wanted to get a head start. As much as I do not enjoy cleaning, there is definitely a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment when it's done.
However the most exciting part of the day comes NEXT :) I BOUGHT MY DRESSSSSSSSS!!! wooooooooo! I decided to go with Dress #2 (Eric don't even think about clicking on that link, I'm serious!) which I had a more immediate love for. It was on sale today and it was already cheaper than Dress 1, so that was happy. Plus I just really felt more comfortable in it and it was more what I pictured for myself on my wedding day. I also found a beautiful veil to go with it and everything is ordered and done. I also love that Priscilla uses NORMAL sizes, so it's not like those gowns or bridesmaid dresses that I have to order twice my size. I know size is not a reflection of anything but it just annoys me anyway and I feel like its a bad marketing scheme because girls always want to feel good about themselves, duh! I also went to check on my bridesmaid dress situation. I forgot if I told you guys this, but when I looked at my bridesmaid dresses online they did not have the pink color, NOOOO. Anyway I went in today and it turns out the lady in the store mixed up luminescent chiffon and iridescent chiffon. So my dress is LUMINESCENT, not iridescent but fortunately there is still a very similar pink color so all is right in the world.
For dinner I decided to get some serious nutrients in my body. This summer I feel like I have not been getting enough veggies or meat, so tonight I decided to remedy this with some rice and beans (okay not at all meat I know). I mixed rice, black beans, carrots and peach (aka my temporary obsession right now). I have a picture but blogger is not letting me post it, what's up with that?
Time to go hang out with Eric while he is actually home. I think I already hate football season.

  10. The dress is perfect! I love your rule with the magazine reading, I might have to start that, because when I get the chance to catch up on my magazines I feel like I'm being lazy.

    Also, I might have to take you up on the advice about the suburbs of Boston soon...I'd love to hear advice from someone who knows the area best! Thanks :)

  11. Beautiful dress! Very classic.

    Your magazine "rule" is a good one. Sadly, I can't read while exercising. I get motion sick! Strange, huh?

    To answer your questions about my swim class, I'm taking Adult Swim Lessons. Class is 40 minutes once a week for 8 weeks. I'll be posting more about it today.

    Our Y does not offer hot yoga. In fact, the room where they hold all the yoga classes is freezing! Our instructor actually told us to dress in layers and bring a sweatshirt and socks.

  13. Gorgeous dress! I think you will be so happy you chose something you will be comfortable in b/c that's what it's all about. You will look stunning, I'm sure!

    I also hate wedding dress sizing .. it's infuriating. You want to feel GOOD on your wedding and feel skinny not like a bloated whale b/c the manufacturers don't feel like using "normal" sizes. Small victories! haha :)
