To say I’m bitter about having to spend seven and a half hours of my Saturday in a classroom would be a slight understatement. I know a good attitude is everything, so I’m trying my damnedest to turn it around before I step foot into the classroom.
That said, I shall stop focusing on my barely-there Saturday and share with you the delightful day I had yesterday and the fun plans I have for later tonight
I spent yesterday in the fine company of my parents. I really like my parents. As corny as it may sound, my mom is one of my best friends and I just like being with her We spent the day catching up on the latest Biggest Loser episode (I hate when the show turns to nasty-game-playing-mode), running errands and talking wedding.
Wedding planning can easily escalate from dreamy-town to crazy-town in the blink of an eye. Who will ride in which limo? Which chicken dish will we pick? What signature cocktail shall we have during the cocktail hour? Should the centerpieces be tall or short? Flowers or fruit? Should my mom wear blue? Yellow? Peach? What time should my hair and make-up crew arrive? How will the drinkers get home safely from the reception? Oh yeah – I’ll be MARRIED at the end of the day, right?
Seriously, I’m not one to get all Bridezilla on anyone. I’m not nit-picky. I’m not needy or flashy. Napkin color doesn’t keep me up at night. Don’t get me wrong, I want the reception to be a epic. I want to look beautiful. I want everything to go according to plan. But as long as I’m married to Cory by 3:00 on August 6, 2011 – everything else will seem perfect
Besides going ga-ga for the wedding, we did manage to eat a fantastic taco dinner I took pictures, I swear! But I was a big dunce and left my camera at M & D’s. Rookie mistake.
Speaking of food: I believe that it makes my mother genuinely happy to see me with food. Eating food, holding food, buying food, etc. One perk of visiting my parents is that my mom tries to send me home with every item of food in the fridge (while my dad is like “WTF am I going to eat tomorrow?!) When I came home, it looked like I had gone on a mini-grocery shopping trip
Tortilla chips, a green pepper, bananas, an apple, trail mix, multi-grain wraps, spaghetti sauce, Mexican blend cheese, bagged salad, shampoo and conditioner annnd a can opener Thank you, Mom!!
I used a good deal of last night’s dinner + my new “groceries” to make my lunch (a lunchbox shouldn’t be needed on a Saturdaaayy. That was me whining. Again. I’m sorry.) A taco salad with lettuce, red pepper, tomatoes, ground beef, and cheese. I packed a larabar and an apple to tide me over as well. I think I’ll have to throw a snack in there as well.
Breakfast was PB&J oats and my workout was P90X’s Plyometrics
Tonight after class I’m headed to my cousin Mandy’s 21st birthday party!! I come from a huge family and we’re all very close, so I’m super excited that she’s back from college for the weekend so we can celebrate!
Okay, it’s off to class I go! I liken this experience to getting into a pool – you just gotta jump in and go for it and hope for the best (like, no wedgies or water up my nose)
I need you – please leave me comments about your fun Saturday plans or things that are making you happy today! Thank God for my new iPhone – I’ll be checking comments throughout the day
