        I'm so incredibly pumped!!!  For many reasons!  Numbered below, haha.

         

        1)  My check-in with my trainer at the gym today was very surprising ---- I've lost 17 pounds!  This means that I've actually lost about 22 pounds of fat and gained 5 pounds of muscle!  I can hardly believe it.  I know I've been working my ass off (literally) with eating right and exercise, but with Thanksgiving, I was sure that I had retarded my progress.  YIPPEEEE!!!  My first dress fitting is in January.  We'll have to scale me down a couple sizes!! LOL! 

         

        2)  I've FINALLY finished our flowers!!!  This was the DIY project I was most dreading, so I knew I had to tackle it ASAP before procrastinating to death and them turning out like poop.  So, here are the final results:

         

        All.jpg

         

        I already posted close-ups of my bridal bouquet and the pics in the locket and the charm, so here are the close-ups of the other bouquet charms:

        Maid of Honor charm.jpg   Maid of Honor charm.jpg

         

        Close-up of the boutonneires:

        Boutonierres.jpg

         

         

        3)  I'm almost done with our Time Capsule Guest Book.  I just need to buy some heart seal stickers from Joann's, make the "key" for who is writing which message (1 year, 2 years, 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, or 30 years), have my Mom & I will paste the rest of the liners in the envelopes over xmas, and then we'll bundle them up for the OOT bags.  (Guests recieve their letter in the OOT bag so they have a bit of time to put a special message in it.  Then, they'll bring it to the ceremony and drop it in the box!)  Here are the results so far:

        The front of the envelopes (with camera flash, so you can see the shimmer):

        Without flash, so you can see the lettering on the metal:

        Env fronts no flash.jpg

         

        Envelope liners:

        The card (handstamped by moi, of course!):

        TC Card.jpg

         

        FI and I will write our cards for each year period (1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 30)... and there'll be 1-3 others each period for us to open, too. :)

         

        4)  Our first wedding gift arrived from our registry!  It was so exciting, hahaa!

         

        Alright, back to sipping my wine and DIYing!  Hope your weekends are going well!!

                    4 bottles of Stella down about to grab another....Great, great conversation had with FI and I feel so so so sos.......much better.  And instantly, my headache was gone.  I called off my girls night today (I just wasn't in the mood), and FI got off early (nothing but God). So we were in the house together at 7pm (this is a record breaker).  I could sense something was wrong (beyond what was already wrong) and kept pressing.  Well he had an issue because I printed the programs without his daughter's name in their but in the same breathe dismissed my cousin's name like I didn't have feelings about it because she wasn't my child.  Why did he do that? Still pissed from 2 days ago (I'm an Aries I carry things for a while), I just let it all out but in a very calm manner.  You ladies know the story but just as I told him, she had more than ample enough time and so did you.  How many times did I tell this man that come Dec 9th I will no longer be able to print in bulk without my job knowing it was me...hmm and I report directly to the CEO.. dude really?  As I told him you knew everything as I kept you informed so please don't act like this was a surprise.  If you have an issue go and talk to your daughter and her mom as I don't want to hear it.  I ended my convo with  "I am the the mother bleep Bride to be" and the only time that I felt like a true bride to be during this entire planning process is when I went to say Yes to the dress.  What about me and my feelings?  What about my sacrifices? And you truly think that at this time I give a rats ass and will run after people.  I'm not doing it, not anymore!  I need to enjoy this process or it will not be done, your call?  Tears were shed from both sides, FI hugged me, gave me the kiss on my forehead that I love and said 'I am truly sorry and went to list all the things he was sorry for" including him not doing his part financially for the wedding.  Wow...this was big

                     

                    But of course I have my thick skin on at this present time, so I need to see action.  So until said time, the wedding projects will still remained boxed up in the spare bedroom. Now that doesn't mean that I will not do projects, it simply means that everything will be done when he is not home and put back.  I mean, I want him to progress right...  EXACTLY ;-)
