A little thing I like to call "Operation Wedding Dress" (aka, my dress is too small... but it won't be soon!)

    Ladies! I have a few updates for you. We got our first RSVP back and it was exciting to see it in the mailbox! It was from my in laws but still I am getting excited to start hearing responses. Secondly, I'm so thrilled to tell you that I have officially lost 10 lbs and about 7 inches. I can't tell you how happy I was this morning when I got on the scale! I downloaded the FitnessPal app for my touch and have been using it since Friday. It is very helpful. Makes you aware of what you are eating. My finance thinks i am nuts going around the kitchen scanning barcodes but hey it keeps me accountable. I wish it had a better database for all the workout dvd's out there. I've had to enter my workouts by monitroing my heart rate throughout the DVD and then entering it myself. That is my only complaint for the app otherwise it is great. I have about 3 months before my dress comes in and I am hoping to lose another 10 by then. Wish me luck!

      THATS AWESOME! yay!

       

      We didnt have a engagment party ( fiance thinks its lame, and what not.. ) and I think our wedding social (fundraiser) is kinda like a engagement party. The province I live in is the only that that allows us to have wedding socials. Basically its a big party, you rent a hall, have prizes , sell booze and have fun.You sell tickets to it which is 10.00 so right now we should have 400 sold so thats 4000 right there. But then you have to minus the expense of the hall and what not. You make money off the prizes and the drinks. :) Basically its a fundraiser and I guess in canada ( Manitoba where I live) thats our form of a engagment party! lol

       

      Im sure Ill probably have a bridal shower and get stuff ( not sure what because we dont need anything ) but it will all be fun!

       

      Hope you have a great trip in oct! I m going to Minneapolis for my bacholorette party in NOvember :) 5 months away! eek!

          I've always dreamed of registering b/c it seems so fun but I don't think he wants to.  We built our house a year and a half ago & literally bought EVERYTHING we needed & wanted b/c we had nothing.  But it sounds like you made out VERY well!  That's awesome.
