Progress

Yay for progress! So far this week I have lost 4 lbs. I feel really good about that. I am about to go work out for the third time this week. I currently walk a mile in about 18 minutes which is an improvement over my 21 minute mile a few weeks ago.

I am also making progress in planning the wedding. I have came up with a vision of the wedding that blends practicality with fun and class. D and I def. don't have the money to have the biggest, baddest wedding ever. But what we do have planned is sure to be charming, cute, heartfelt, and a good time to be had by all. Really, I think the wedding will be amazing because we expect somewhere in the neighborhood of 120 guests and our budget is way under average and that includes EVERYTHING. Most people don't count the wedding bands and the honeymoon and the hotel rooms. But our budget includes these things. I don't take "it can't be done" for an answer. I am creative enough to find a way. But I think what makes me unique is I don't denounce the "wedding industrial complex" like a lot of other brides do. I do have a professional coordinator, photographer, caterer, etc. I did not want to burden my friends and family with doing all of the wedding related tasks. After reading other blogs of budget brides I think I can do it too, in my own style.

Here are a few that I have checked out:
