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:
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:

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