Last Day Before Vacation

My life the past few days have consist of the 3 W's... Work, Workouts, and Wedding. At least I can drop the work thing after Friday. I'm on vacation for 2 weeks! Yay!!!!!

So I am sorry I haven't really taken or uploaded any daily outfits, but I did manage to take a quick pic of myself before heading to the gym the other day. So here's my workout warrior look:
No make-up, hair pulled back in a ponytail and a headband, and my Bodybugg. The whole outfit was bought at Target. The shoes are Asics. I need a new pair badly. It's been over a year since I bought these. I am so bad about new tennis shoes. I'll buy a million and one pair of heels, but I always out off buying new workout shoes. Oh and I am obsessed with blue if you couldn't tell from this pic. Not pictured is my aqua blue water bottle and aqua blue iPod Shuffle.

In the food dept, this has been one of my favorite meals. It's called Marine Corp Mash. I sometimes get take out from a local healthy meal place, My Fit Foods. They have this meal and at first I had no interest in it. It just didn't look as appealing. Once I got brave enough to try it out, I loved it! So now I make it. It's a mixture of red quinoa, 96% lean beef, onions, garlic, rosemary, thyme, kidney beans, and a smidgen of 2% cheese. Lots of good protein! Paired with the MCM is a simple salad of spinach, avocado, and cucumbers in a balsamic spritz.

Lastly, I thought I'd give you a glimpse of my madness. Here are few wedding goodies that need to be organized and packed up for Mexico. Our colors are brown and green. I had some left over material from a purse I made, so I sewed a few goodie bags for my guests. I thought they turned out so cute. I think everything will come together and turn out great. Despite the big swine flu scare, we have about 35 people going to Mexico with us. I know we're all looking forward to some fun in the sun :-)

So this will probably be my last post till I get back. I'll post pics when I get back! I hope everyone is doing well. I can't wait to see all your fab pics when I get back. Take care!

Afternoon Tea

I know it's been a while since my last post, but the past couple of weeks have been super busy. Thanks so much for being patient with me. I leave for Play del Carmen in a week and a half so time is jammed pack with wedding madness in the meantime. Between the wedding preparations and my workouts, I haven't had much time for my little blog and I miss reading my favorite blogs too. I feel like I've been missing out. So to somewhat catch up, I thought I'd post some pictures from a tea party (shower) my sister and cousin threw for me. It was at an adorable little place where we sampled a lot of different teas, scones, cucumber sandwiches, and other tasty treats. My sister really outdid herself. I know she did a lot to make sure it was a lovely event. Here are a few pictures...

Me and my sis!

BTW, I found this cute dress at Stein Mart!

My workouts and meals are still going strong. I hit my goal last month and I'm working on this month's goal. My wedding dress fits great! No sucking in or spanx required. I can breathe, eat, and sit comfortably. I know you ladies know what I'm talking about :-) So right now my trainer and I are mostly focusing on my arms and abs (lots of super sets!). Of course I'll still workout my whole body, but I'll concentrate on those areas more...

I hope to post sometime this week. My girlfriends are throwing me a slumber party shower Saturday night. I'm sure we'll have some fun pictures of the night. I may have to go out and find some cute pajamas to wear. Why do I feel like makeovers will be involved at some point?

I hope y'all have a great weekend! I'll be catching up on my blog reading this weekend.
