Why I Blog

Sometimes I wonder... why is blogging so popular? What makes us tell intimate details of our life to complete strangers? Well... I think that for me it is all about the shared human experience. Whether we admit it or not, we all look for validation from others. If we have a job that sucks, we want to know that others are going through the same thing. Since I am currently planning a wedding (for another 33 days at least!), I have a ton of wedding blogs on my google reader. Some of the blogs I read are for entertainment such as YKYDAW. And still others I read because they help me keep up with friends who I have known forever and meet new ones. When someone writes about something that I can identify with I think it's cool. Sometimes we spend so much time in our little bubble we forget that others have already traveled the path we are on and may have a few wise words to share.

D doesn't get the whole blogging thing but I really like it. I know that part of the reason he doesn't like it is I put him on blast in some of my entries ☺

So I blog to express myself, I blog to meet people, I blog because it's entertaining. Why do you blog?

What a weekend!

Right now I am sitting on the couch, watching Napoleon Dynamite, next to a sleeping dog and fiance. I feel like sleeping too but I am trying to motivate to get some things done around the house and work on notes for my job. So... here's the weekend in review. I went to class yesterday morning from 8:00-10:30 then I jetted over to my bridal shower.

It was very nice. My mom and bridesmaids did a great job decorating and the food was yummy. I got a lot of nice gifts. I loved the dress that I was wearing.

I wanted to keep it on for the rest of the day but it was so HOT yesterday that a shower was in order before moving onto the next activity. So after helping clean up the bridal shower I came home and freshened up. I changed into my lovely BR zebra dress (well I wasn't going to wear this one at first but D didn't like my first choice) and we off we went to the wedding of D's frat brother.

It was a very nice wedding. It gave me a few ideas for what we want to do with ours (35 days away!!!!) and somethings we don't want to do. It made us worry a little bit because this wedding was inside a church and it was still warm for everyone inside. Ours is going to be outdoors so hopefully our guests don't pass out from the heat (or worse D!)

Ok, time to stop procrastinating and do something productive with my life. It was fun but I gotta get back to business.

Right now I have quite a few things to juggle. I am in the last few weeks of mi clase de espanol. I am in the last few weeks of wedding planning and I am in the first few weeks of a new job. Whew! That is a lot. I never got around to loosing all the weight I thought I would lose for the wedding. I know I am only making excuses but it is tough to eat right when I am on the run a lot of the time. I do have sporadic pockets of down time and depending on my proximity to home, I can go chill and eat a healthy snack or meal. Realistically speaking, I do think I can shed a few lbs. in the next 6 weeks. If I push myself I can get about 8-10 lbs off of my frame. Of course that won't make me lose a size nor will it really make me look that much different but it will be a good start. I have vowed that I will get to a healthy weight before I start having children. Since babies are in the 2 year plan, I have to be developing the right habits now.

Anyhoo, here is my self designed "plan": Slim fast for breakfast, a lunch of my choice whether it be out at fast food or @ home, and then a small dinner. I have decided that lunch should be the largest meal because "they" say that people should not eat a lot in the evening. So for example, today I had my slim fast, then I had a chick-fil-a grilled sandwich combo and for dinner I just snacked on a few kashi crackers. Tomorrow I plan on having lunch at home so it won't be quite as heavy as chick-fil-a. I will probably have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and some goldfish. Yummy :-)

Quick geography lesson

Hawaii is really not next to Alaska. It just looks that way on some maps.

(Someone recently was confused about this)

Time is just flying

58 days......!!!!!

That's how long it will be until I am a married woman. OMG! I still haven't lost those 15 lbs I wanted to get off my frame. I haven't tested out the cookie recipes for the dessert buffet. I haven't done a lot of things that I thought I would have done with a little under two months to go. But then again I just started a new job and I am taking a class (that I have five more weeks left to complete), so sometimes I forget I am getting married so soon.

My new goal is to do something wedding related every day. Today I printed about 8 treat bags for the dessert buffet. That is kinda slow going because it's hard to feed a lunch bag through a printer. So at this pace I will have them done before the end of the month. I also have to work in physical activity each day, no excuses!
