We've decided to call the wedding off. I'm not going to go into details here but everything will be okay.

Striptease and Shredding

So today I explored the excercise videos that are available on my cables on demand section. I did two of the Carmen Electras Striptease's and then Jillian Michaels The Shred.

LOVED the striptease, they actually got me sweating (although I did the one twice). They were also fun and I feel like I've learned moves I could even use in the club. ha The Shred was also okay. I had high expectations though because all the girls on the knot said it kicked their ass but I just felt like it was a normal workout. I'm not saying it was easy, but normal. I'll probably continue to do both on top of my normal three days a week weightlifting and eliptical routine.

Since I never updated from my last post, I might as well now. I'm down to 133! Can you believe that?! 133! I was almost at 155 when I first weighed myself back in May! I know thats almost a year away but I've come along way! I'm at my ideal weight now, I'm just trying to tone everything, expecially those abs and inner thighs. I have one of those pooches right below my belly button and I want it gone before my Hawaii trip.

I finally finished the bubble baskets! I started these forever ago, when we had the old house but now they are done and have already been shipped back to Pennsylvania. I only put a ribbon on a couple of bubbles to see how they would look, they turned out pretty good. The rest I just will have Jerry's mom do, I didn't want the bows to look funny after being shipped and tossed around.

This is what the baskets look like. I just ordered heart charms and then picked up some charms from Michaels that said things like 'faith', 'hope', etc. on them and strung them on there alternatingly. I even put bows on some of the charms, not all though because I didn't want it to look too crowded, just enough.

Will you be our...

Flowergirl and Ringbearer? Not to long ago I made these cute little cards for my cousins. I had originally only wanted to make a will you be our flowergirl card but since they're brother and sister, I couldn't send a card to one and not the other.

Attached to the ringbearer card is two rings that I picked up at Michaels to kind of relate to the role since I couldn't think of anything else to do for his. In the tulle is a couple of peanut butter cups and starbursts (they were the only small candies at Michaels that were wrapped!) ha. I didn't think about them being so young and probably not being able to eat starbursts but hopefully their mom got too!

Goodbye, Hello

At the beginning of the month Jerry and I packed up our house and moved to an apartment, hence my absence lately. We got an offer early February, after six months of waiting. It was good news because it meant we're going to save tons of money, rent is half the cost, but sort of sad becuase we redid the whole thing so it was exactly how we wanted and now we're gone. We just put the hardwood floors in last March so we only got to enjoy it for one year.

I really didn't want to sell, but I knew we had to. We're much closer to school now, so close we can ride our bikes which saves tons on gas. Also, with three bedrooms, two living rooms and two baths it was definately too big for us, it was just nice that it was all set up. In a couple of years when we start a family I think I'll regret selling it, but oh well its done with now. We found a new apartment at the end of the month so on March 1st we moved on out. We're in our new place now and its alright, much smaller though-I didn't realize how much stuff we had!

We're adjusting though, everythings finally put away so we can relax. I can also get back to wedding planning now too!
