Hey everyone. I have been so busy, sorry I haven’t posted! So let’s just jump right in. Friday on the way home from work I stopped and got a non-fat iced mocha latte and enjoyed it while catching up with my friend Jill.
At 6pm I went and got haircut, I asked for a 1/2 inch trim and she totally cut almost 2 inches off. Ugh, I am trying to grow my hair out, and I feel like she cut it all off. It is a great cut, just too much off. After the cut I was in a little bit of a bad mood and I was hungry…so I made a quick diner. I made a Buffalo Tuna Melt. I combined a can of tuna, some non-fat greek yogurt, and some buffalo sauce, put it on Trader Joe’s whole wheat tuscan bread with a slice of American Cheese and pressed it on the George Forman Grill. It was AWESOME spicy and melty…hit the spot.
I ate it with some brown rice chips with hummus and spicy salsa.
One spicy dinner 🙂
I ate the whole sandwich and about 1/2 of the chips and salsa/hummus. My sweet tooth kicked in hard after I ate, so I had a little bit of Stoneyfield Farm’s coffee froyo with mini peanut butter cups, almond slivers and coconut.
Doesn’t that look awesome? It was!!!!
I spent the rest of the evening on the couch relaxing. Yesterday I got up at 6:30 am and did a few things around the apt. that needed to get done. Including wrapping Erica’s Bridal Shower Gift.
While doing that stuff, I snacked on half of a kashi bar and had some coffee.
Once I got those things done, I went to the gym. It was pouring out, so no run outside I went to the gym and decided to use the elliptical, I couldn’t remember the last time I was on one of those. I did 30 minutes of the random hill setting at a level 7 while reading the newest issue of Self. It was a great workout. Then I did a legs and abs workout.
- 3 sets of seated leg press, 70 pounds, 15 reps per set
- 3 sets of laying legs extensions with an 8 pound weight between my feet, 15 reps per set.
- 3 sets of calf raises, 75 pounds (30 reps per set)
- 3 sets of lower-half lifts on the exercise ball using body weight
- 3 sets of side planks with a twist, 10 reps per set, on each side
- 3 sets of bicycles 20 on each side
- 3 sets of laying ball pass, 12 reps per set
- 3 plank Pike-ups, 12 reps per side.
When I got home, I made a Green Monster with:
- frozen banana
- flax seed
- protein powder
- Amazing Meal
- chocolate almond milk
- bee pollen
- peanut butter
I also had a piece of Ezekiel toast with Barney Butter.
I got ready and headed to Erica’s Shower. It was a difficult drive, the rain was awful and I need new wipers on my car. It is funny, you never realize that you need new wipers until you are in a rain storm. They shower was a FANTASTIC TIME!!!! Erica is getting married on Halloween so the theme was Halloween of course. The shower was at her aunt’s house which was absolutely beautiful and the shower decorations were just perfect, not over the top Halloween, but just enough. Here is the beverage table.
Of course, I was in charge of icd tea:
I didn’t have any myself, but the bride loved it…and that is what really matters. THe punch looked amazing too.
I enjoyed one glass of Shiraz…it was perfect after a stressful drive.
(yeah, I put ice in it…I drink my red wine cold). Here are some pictures of the decor, it was done really nicely.
How cute right?! It looks like us three bridesmaids 🙂
That was the invitation. So cute, right? The bride’s talented brother Andy designed them. Erica and Andy are both really talented and creative. Erica actually created the top of my blog that you guys see every-time you come and visit!
So cute! It was so nicely done.
Erica’s mom and aunt made this for her to wear for the day. How creative!
Look at all those wonderful gifts (she got some great stuff)! The food was amazing as well!
Tomatoes, Mozzarella, fresh basil.
various muffins and rolls…
The table was decorated so nicely, with fabric that matched the invites, some mums and candy corn. Of course I tried a little of everything.
I ate the whole plate, everything was great! I also had some hummus and pretzels earlier while chatting with people, no picture but, you can use your imagination. I also ate my fair share of these…
There were some in every room, I couldn’t resist. After we ate, we played a game to see how well we knew the bride and groom. It was fun, and I didn’t do too badly either…but Erica’s sister won…
Here is the Beautiful Bride and her cute hat.
She actually gave us gifts for being in the wedding…so sweet and unexpected.
She made us all cards that she designed with our name on them! I love mine! Isn’t the peacock feather awesome??? It makes me want to write letters. Her sister was so excited Erica put her new last name on hers. She is getting married this coming Friday!
I love this note pad too, I have it in my purse right now! It her perfect for all my lists…you guys know how much I love making lists!
Travel mug, I was actually going to buy one this weekend for my coffee to go for work. I love the pattern on this one!
and some tea, this tea smells AMAZING, like chocolate! I can’t wait to try some.
Thanks Erie! It was all so nice, I love all my gifts and they are all things I will use for sure! Erica got a lot of gifts too. Here are some highlights. Here mm’s cats bought her a voo-doo doll that says “New Husband” on it. HAHAHAHA! We all got a kick out of that!
She got some wine that was “wicked” themed…Sin Zin…how cool?!
and of course wedding night goodies 😉
After gifts it was time for dessert:
Look at how awesome these cupcakes look!
and these cookies were so cute…and so, so, so yummy.
I had a cupcake and Lydia (MOH) and I split a cookie.
and a cup of coffee
I loved the dessert napkins…adorable!
Ok, I have to write part two now. My program isn’t letting up upload any more photos, I have no idea what is up with that!
