Hope everyone had agreat weekend. I finally convinced my FI to do a registry. He just wanted $$$ for wedding gifts but didn't understand that guests dont want to give cash for the shower typically. The shower is a girly thing that people like tho give actual gifts....am I right? I've never had one for myself but been to some and I always but a gift (something for the bride) So he agreed, we went to the bay (easiest choice) and had a blast! We had so much fun scanning things for our new house that we don't have yet:) And now he ant to go to another store to add more things. I've created a monster. I forgot to add that to the list but it's done!!

Today is my first day back to Insanity after a week off.....scary. Hope I don't dieeek.gif

That's definatley the way to go. Try them all on.
I dont understand some that try 1 dress on and know it's the one. I tried about 80, my mom was about to strangle me because I dragged her out of the house almost every sunday for 6 months. But I am absolutley in love with my dress, so it was all worth it.

A boudoir shoot is a huge motivator to get in shape. Hope you 2 like the px90,lots of variety. I wish my FI would workout with me sad.gif

I am so glad I have 2 months to work off the christmas food and drink! Why do we eat so muchhuh.gif? I am pulling out a bikini to look at so when I want to eat something my thighs don't need I will have to look at the bikini. LOL
I hope I can make it out of the season the same size I am now.....

Renee, we also want a new camera so we are telling everyone to get gift cards at future shop as another option. The camera is quite expensive so we hope we do get alot of gift cards.

Thanks Nicole!!

Haha, yeah going to the gym for me lost it's lustre pretty quick! If you just purchase the P90X you'll need a few free weights a pull up bar or resistance band. It really lays out for you what DVD to do what day and it's easier than it looks :)

YAY! Good for you! I did it with my FI too and let me tell you it made it SO much easier than going it alone which is what I'm doing with Insanity since he hates it.

You're right, I had a lingerie shower and gave the option of buying from my Crate and Barrel registry if they didn't want to get me lingerie. What ended up happening is a got a combo, one even put a bunch of thongs inside a pyrex tupperware set :)

Good luck back on Insanity! I'm back with you on it tomorrow and NOT looking forward to it!

I registered for Crate and Barrel, I'm big into cooking and their style. I also registered at Macy's, Marriott (for honeymoon) and another honeymoon site :)

You're lucky!!! MY BD shoot is January 10th because my photogs wife is pregnant and due a few weeks later!! I'm freaking out because my diet sucked this weekend and I feel like I don't look ready.

I've decided to do a liver cleanse on January 1st, it's only 24 hours but it's supposedly a bad 24 hours.

LOL I was the opposite of this. I think it depends on your personality. I'm a really indecisive person so trying a million dresses on would have driven me crazy. I went to one sale and bought off the rack. When I walked in I said I wasn't leaving without a dress because I didn't want to have to shop for one again lol. I didn't love my dress when I bought it. It was just the best of the ones I tried on, but I don't regret it and loved it on my wedding day. I wouldn't change any of it. To me, my sanity was more important lol. To each their own!

So happy you found THE dress :). And I give you props for being so devoted in your shopping! 6 months... wow lol!! But like you said, totally worth it, so that's all that matters :)

Agreed! I tried on about 80 as well, most in one exhausting day. I didn't find my dress until I was buy myself... then once I realized I was unable to sleep until my appt the following Sunday that it must be the dress for me. There's something settling about the reaction you get from your closest friends and mother when you find your dress.

Nicole I wish I was like you... I cause myself WAY too much stress and can't decide on anything and drive myself crazy all the time sad.gif People keep saying, oh your wedding is in 4 months, how exciting! My reply is typically, "yeah hopefully I survive that long" haha!!

Amy, if you don't mind me asking, what is a liver cleanse? I am planning on doing a 3 day detox in two weeks to jump start the weight loss and new diet with P90X. I have never heard of a liver cleanse.

 

Gah, the things we do to look good, lol!
