Happy Friday everyone! I took a half day today so I could get organized and ready for Tiff's wedding. Actually, truth be told I was supposed to be straightening my hair right now (yes it takes that long) but it turns out I no longer need my hair straight for tomorrow because it's going to be basically a hurricane outside. My kids were pretty cute when I told them I was leaving. First they asked if it was my wedding and whether or not they could be it (sure, last minute ring bearer! haha). Then, once I explained to them that it was NOT my wedding but I was in a wedding they asked if I was the flower girl. Haha...ohhh Tiff, you now have a 25 year old flower girl!
So far I've spent the afternoon getting prepared. I went to this adorable store next to my bank to get a new "wedding" pair of earrings to wear tomorrow. While I was there they told me they were having a HUGE sale on Vera Bradley. But I resisted...yay!
I came home and made myself some tuna + greek yogurt on fresh sour dough bread.
Then I settled my stomach with a cup of peppermint tea and an issue of Cooking Light. My tea mug says "Bahamas" on it...sure wouldn't mind being there right now...Then I started to get my snacks for tomorrow ready. For those of you who don't know me in real life, I am pretty much the queen of snacks. I don't go anywhere without snacks. I have to be really prepared when it comes to food since there are so many things that upset my stomach. At Katie's wedding this summer, my stomach felt terrible (directly related to my very high stress level). I didn't eat a lot that day because I didn't feel well and even though I barely drank at all, I woke up the next day feeling terrible. SO...I am learning from that mistake and this time I am...
- keeping my stress level down...I know how to do it this time and I'm not in charge so if I don't know what to do it really doesn't matter :)
- getting more sleep the night before (my tummy gets more angry when I have no sleep)
- bringing snacks!
- bringing tons of bottled water and not being afraid to drink it- if I drink water at 10 am, that is not going to make me have to pee at 3:30 in the afternoon
On an unrelated, but exciting note, two treats arrived in the mail today!
Eric and Kelly stockings! YAY! Last year Eric and I didn't have stockings in our tiny apartment, but this year we really want to decorate our house nice and Christmasy. Last week when Pottery Barn was doing "free monogramming" we figured, why not? The only problem left is that we don't actually have a fireplace, so we'll have to get creative about where these will actually go.
Now time to go really get organized! I hope everyone has a great weekend and if you are anywhere near Boston, stay dry!
