I'm a blogging failure...after my last post I told myself I would be better about posting updates...but clearly that didn't happen.
In my defense, I have been keeping pretty busy. I started training for Heartland 39.3 a little over 2 weeks ago. I have been following a RunKeeper plan (that was free with my elite membership) and it's a little more intense than the plan I followed last year. It incorporates long runs, speed work, hills, and weight training... which is really nice because I tend to neglect all of those necessities when I am training for a race. My goal is a 1:45, for at least 1 of the 3 halves...but I wouldn't hate a 1:45ish for all 3 of them :)
Kansas has been really kind weather wise the last few weeks (minus a small snow/ice storm) and it has made getting out and running really enjoyable. This weather has me anxiously awaiting spring!!
Along with training, I have been a busy bee planning our wedding. When we first started planning, everyone (all the people who gave me the "are you crazy look" at the bridal show) made planning a wedding in 7 months sound impossible.
I'm knocking on wood as I type this, (yep I am that talented) but wedding planning has been breeze thus far...and it's even been, dare I say it....fun. Once we found the venue and set the date everything else seemed to fall into place beautifully. This is thanks in part to my wonderful mom, who helped with making a billion phone calls and being available at the drop of a hat to meet with caterers, DJ's, photographers, etc.
We only have a few (fun) things left on the do to list. Registering (which we are doing Friday), ordering tuxes (also on Friday), flowers, cake, invitations, booking the honeymoon, and finalizing table decorations. Okay...that to-do list seemed a lot shorter in my head ;) Luckily, I have my whole summer vacation to finalize all of the 3 million tiny details.
I would like to say I am on a diet in preparation for the wedding...but...dieting is hard and I really like food. Plus my dress fits perfectly. I bought it off the rack and it doesn't require any alterations (except length...which always happens when you are as short as I am) so I feel obligated to stay exactly the same...minus my arms and shoulders...operation killer wedding arms has officially begun!
Good thing I am not on a diet...After eating all of these yummy treats from my students...someone is most likely going to have to roll me out of my classroom!
My wonderful fiance knows me so well...he sent me an edible arrangement for Valentine's Day...with plenty of pineapple :) Hopefully the fruit balances out all of the processed sugar I will be consuming!
This is by far my favorite part of the edible arrangement...I love puns, our wedding date, and my fiance...Alfredo Jalepeno ;)
That's all I have for today...hopefully we will talk again...sooner than later :)
Any wedding planner secrets? Besides drinking lots of wine...I have that down ;)
Valentines plans? What's everyone doing to celebrate the day of love?
