It’s 7:30 and I could seriously pass out. I’m that tired because I’ve been running nonstop all day today, including running for 7 miles. I’m not used to that on Fridays!
After I got off work at 10:30 this morning, I headed straight over to the courthouse to get my name changed on my passport. Luckily, Caitlin had tweeted about how she needs to do this, and I saw her tweet. I say luckily, because I probably wouldn’t have remembered to do this until a week before I go on our cruise this year. Heh. Taking his last name sure is fun, but there’s a crap ton of stuff ya gotta do to make it legal! It’s a #1 reason not to get divorced. Haha..I kid, I kid!
Anyway, after going to the courthouse, I came home to work on my anniversary gift to Shane. It’s a bit personal, or else I’d share it with you all! Speaking of the anniversary again, Shane is taking me on a surprise trip tomorrow! However, I won’t be able to tell you all where until tomorrow. Don’t worry, I’ll keep my laptop on me wherever we go like the good little blogger I am 0;-)
So after working on the present, I decided I needed to go on my run. Unfortunately, mother nature again wouldn’t let me use my Garmin because a. the bugs are still here, and won’t go away until it cools down, and b. it was raining. So I grudgingly took my booty to the gym. I had planned on running my long run today, since I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to tomorrow or Sunday. The plan was to run a 10K. But then 4 miles in, I felt great, and was entertained by watching Days of Our Lives (greatest thing about going to the gym mid-day) so I decided to kick it up to 7 miles.
Boy was I a tired girl. I haven’t run more than 6.2 miles in three or four weeks, so my body felt the effect. All I wanted to do was go home and nap, while watching Dr. Oz. However, that wasn’t in the day’s plan! My best friend, Jessica is getting married next July, and today we went dress shopping! She looked beautiful in her dress. It’s not fair how gorgeous she is! I won’t post the pictures of her in her dress, because I wouldn’t want her FH somehow stumbling upon them, but trust me, she was stunning.
We also picked out a few bridesmaids dresses. The day looked a lot like this for a good portion of it:
We ended up finding two that we liked. She’s having an outdoor wedding at the Mackinaw Valley Vineyard in July, so we wanted to make sure the dresses were light and airy!
A few hours later, I made the drive back home, and Shane and I started our anniversary weekend! It started out with cooking a dinner together.
On the menu:
- zesty’s maple carrots
- cous cous
- grilled chicken
- stove top
Yep, stove top. For some reason Shane wanted stuffing, so I made what he wanted (just for him though!) I think it’s because he saw it on the cover of my Clean Eating magazine that just came in the mail.
I have a feeling tonight will be an early night. We are both pooped, and we have to get up early tomorrow for the Walk For the Mind. I’m looking forward to this, and showing my support for my cousin
*phew* that was a long post.
Have you been a bridesmaid before? Does anyone have any funny/embarrassing/crazy stories about their dresses??
