I missed this forum over the weekend!  My first day at work since last Thursday.  Our beloved pet had surgery on Thursday and unfortunately passed yesterday. FI is devastated and so I am.   Sunday was my bridal shower and I had a lovely Fiesta-themed party.  So much love from my friends... really needed that.   My FI asked me if we could have a picture of Maximus at our wedding.  Of course, I said!!  I have to think of a very special way to honor him.  
My thoughts are with you and your FI. Losing a pet is like losing a family member. I am so sorry... Glad you had a great bridal shower!

Aww that is horrible. I hate that for you guys. I know my pets are literally my children so I know how upsetting it can be to loose such a special piece of your heart.

 

I like the idea of the picture tied to your bouquet. Etsy sellers are great for that, and you could even get a small one to add as a charm to his tie clip or bout. Or my doggie has a couple of bandanas, you could sew a piece into your dress and his suit. 

So sorry again. :(

Very cute! And wine never hurt a DIY project in my opinion haha. Everytime i think I need to sit down and do a project this last month I just open up my doors, turn on the music and grab a beer!

Shew- So this last weekend my bridesmaids sort of through me by basically saying that I have too much planned for everyone for our wedding week cause they want to lay out and drink. Here is the deal- Out of seven nights, I planned the wedding (THursday) and they planned Tuesday to be the shower and dinner at night (So all morning afternoon open and free or can go to the spa). (Guys will have an excursion for their night). other than that all it consisted of was meeting at the same bar the first night we get it (So that everyone can meet and party together to get the trip started good) and then ONE dinner together just cause I thought it would be nice to all have dinner one night. 

We planned to spend four hours on a sunset happy hour cruise on Monday, but that is just four hours. So basically Sat, Sun, Mon (minus 4 hours), Tues morning, Wed, Fri and Sat are all open days. I mean I am not counting one dinner as a planned event because hello are they not planning on eating? 

They didnt say it mean or anything, but it just bothered me a little because I really just want to do things together some. I love sitting by the pool and having drinks as much as the next person, but this is my first time to DR and only the second time out of the country so I wanted to explore a little.

So anyways, FI and I decided we would cancel the cruise on Monday and that will give him another day of fishing and I will just go on an excursion of my choice Sun, Mon, Wed or Fri. 

When I told them they were like "Oh I was really looking forward to that." I was just thinking whatever cant do this anymore. Cant make everyone happy so OH WELL! :)

 

In other news, two of my bridesmaid dresses dont fit but luckily the only two sizes they are not sold out of are the two sizes they need. Thank the Good LORD!

So I got to get on ordering those this morning. Then going for a run to get all the stress out and back to getting stuff done this afternoon! Cause in two weeks i want to be saying ALLLLLL DONE!!!!!!!!!! :)

Thank you, thank!  I love both ideas.. this picture in my bouquet and to sow a piece of his bandana into Matt's tie.  You girls are awesome.  

 

Matt is very depressed. Hopefully time will help him heal a little bit before our wedding.  Flying next week to Eleuthera, Bahamas for my MOH's wedding.That will be much needed time away from the house which reminds us so much of Maxi.

 

xoxo

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
