Is it May Yet??

I know, I know, I haven't posted in forever. I got a new position at work again and typing logically on the computer is the last thing on my mind when I get home.

Wedding planning and details are coming along pretty well...I just hope that we're able to pay for it all :) I'm a tad bit worried that we'll run a bit short on something with other life expenses that keep coming up. Like now, I have to pay for a formal dress for a work event next week when I had that money earmarked to pay for the last bit of my wedding dress. Waiting another two weeks won't kill me, I guess!

We just received our wedding invitation proofs yesterday and so they'll be in to send by the beginning of next week! I think they are cute and a bit different! They are from the new pocket collection from Carlson pictures are available online yet, so here's a little sneak preview. The first picture shows the invitation itself (with the pertinent info removed), and the second one kind of gives you the idea of what it will look like inside the black pocket. It has a little circle where the R peeks through.

My aunts are throwing me a wedding shower in a few weeks. We just finished our registries for Target, Bed, Bath, & Beyond, and Kohl's, so I think this should give people quite enough ideas for gifts!!! This event is what I'm dreading the most (well except for the dancing at the reception)...I hate being the center of attention and having to make small talk with relatives that I barely know! At least, I'll have enough of my work friends there to loosen me up. I've heard rumblings about some work people also wanting to plan a bachelorette party for me (since my MOH is younger than 21 and also a bit of a flake lately). So, we'll see what happens.

And weight loss? Since I went back to WW, I've lost 10 pounds. It's troubling that I'm still a good deal heavier than I was at this time next year, but my mind is so much healthier, so I guess it's an even tradeoff. Paul and I have also joined a different gym that is right next to our job, so that way when I go in earlier, he can work out before work, and I can workout while I wait for him to get off work. I'm hoping this will help me shed weight a little quicker before the big day. Plus, I've always wanted to do an aqua aerobics class and there are some that work great with my schedule.

Stay tuned for pictures of me in my dress!! I'll take some once I have my fitting :)
