A Wedding Planning Weekend

It’s Friiiiidayy!! This is the first weekend in three weeks that I don’t have any time commitments on Saturday, so I’m excited for whole whole weekend.

Last two weekends in February = class 9:00 – 4:30

Last Saturday = Volunteer training 9:00 – 5:00

This weekend = I’m headed outta town!!

This girl = SUPER excited! 😀

Cory and I are leaving in a few hours to head to Richmond for the weekend to cross some major items off of our Wedding To-Do List!


I can’t wait to share our agenda with you – but that will have to wait until tomorrow :)

I had a little dilemma packing for my weekend. It’s nearing the end of the cold winter, and as I looked into my closet I found myself thinking “I have nothing to wear.” I feel like I’ve over-worn every piece of cold weather apparel that I own. I’m in such limbo because it’s not hot enough for Spring clothes, but I feel like it’s too warm for turtlenecks and scarves. Does that make any sense? (I’m all about lame cartoons today. I like it.)

Well, I managed to pull some outfits together, but I’m not happy about them. Nothing can put a damper on my self-confidence like feeling uncomfortable in an outfit. Again I ask, does that make sense?

Regardless, I am so excited to get to Richmond to see Cory’s family and plow through some wedding things! I promise to take as many pictures as I can :)

I know this weekend is going to be filled with good eats, so I wanted to workout before we left. I ran 2 miles on the treadmill (with hills and speed intervals) and ran a little over a mile outside. I also did about 15 minutes of strength training.

Following my sweat session, breakfast was – brace yourself – not cereal OR oatmeal. Have I gone mad?! No, friends. I was just craving an omelette and toast. Gotta love a made-to-order dining hall breakfast :)

I enjoyed an egg white omelette stuffed with broccoli, green peppers, tomatoes, onions and mushrooms + a piece and a half of rye toast (my favorite).

Well, I’ve got a few more things to do before I can get on the road. Enjoy your Friday, my friends! I’ll catch up with you soon!

Let’s chat – Married (or engaged) ladies, what was your favorite part about wedding planning? What plans do you have this weekend? What’s your favorite strength training move?

    I’m engaged now, and so far not much has been fun… but I think that’s because I’ve been in Africa for 90% of it so far, and that just sucks the fun right out of it. Shopping for wedding bands was a blast though! I found mine about three weeks after the proposal, and I love it so much!!!!

    As I’ve probably mentioned a dozen times- I’m not engaged but sad I have a lot of things that we’ve planned already (for whenever the time comes haha) and I think I love just looking around and different venues that we potentially may have! I’m picky at where we are going to have it ha. My weekend = qt with the boy..shopping..and relaxing FINALLY :) have a fabulous weekend dear! xo

    My weekends have been jam packed lately too, so I know how nice that must feel to have a free weekend! Have a great time with the wedding details! Although I’m not engaged, I am in two weddings in the fall and I have spent some time on thebrokeassbride.com and theknot.com, hehe. I love looking at all of the DIY stuff!

    I bet your outfits will look great, but I totally know what you mean about how that kind of thing can affect your self-confidence. That happens to me a lot too.

    Have a great weekend, you deserve it!!
