Tis the Season

Posted on

Yesterday, after writing an article, practicing a little body pump, putting away some laundry, and tidying things up a bit I had to shower up and get ready to attend a couple’s shower.  Even though Brian and I are both friends with Kelsey and Luke, the soon-to-be-wed couple and it was a couple’s shower, I had to go solo so that Brian could head to another friend’s bachelor party…tis the season for weddings!

After showering, I headed straight to the kitchen to quickly prepare something for Brian and I to eat before we both headed out for our wedding themed evenings.

Brian’s mom, grandma, and aunt soon came home, and his grandma had a present for me!  This cute vintage apron…

I love it!  The best thing about it…there is a pocket 😉

The dinner I whipped up was very fast and very tasty.  On a greased baking sheet, I threw on two 4 oz pieces of salmon, a small tomato, some asparagus spears, a little onion.  I topped everything with fresh garlic, salt, and pepper.  I put it in the oven on 400 degrees for 10 minutes…and voila! Dinner was served.

Brian and I then headed out on our separate ways for the evening.

When we arrived at the shower, we immediately headed out back.  It was the perfect venue for a shower!  I thought that the entire atmosphere was fun, relaxed, and just plain pretty!

And the food tasted as good as it looked!  My favorite was the vegetable tray with blanched green beans and asparagus…yummmm I could have eaten my weights worth in asparagus.

It was a great evening spent with friends.  I am absolutely loving all of the events and chatter about weddings…it truly is that time of year!

Now, it’s time to grocery shop, prep my food for the week, and practice body pump.

What is on Your Sunday To-Do List?

Bridal Weekend

Posted on

Coming into this weekend, I didn’t realize how bridal it would be.


Yesterday, Brian and some of our friends headed to Richmond, IN for a couples shower for our friends, Tori and Kegan, who are getting married in one month.  I can’t believe the big day is almost here!


Brian was very focused while trying to GPS the destination because we were running slightly late….

But we ended up getting there about 10 minutes early!  The night was spent at one of her relatives restaurants.

The appetizer’s served were all of Tori’s favorites.  There were veggies and dip, bruschetta, muscles, stuffed muscles, and shrimp.

Of course there was dessert.  A set of chocolate golf clubs for Kegan and a chocolate high heel for Tori.  Very appropriate.

This high heel is solid chocolate!

Her sister made some cupcakes too!

And taking a BIG bite out of her chocolate heel.

Each table had delicious smelling candles that we were able to take with us.  Lindsey and Kate were determined to find the best scent 😉

All the ladies

At the end of the night, they were packaging up the leftovers, but left all of the veggies!  I naturally asked if I could have some and they said to take as much as I wanted! 🙂  Yay for me…Brian was sad that it wasn’t any of the fun stuff like cake 😦


All in all the night was great, and it was so special to be able to see where Tori is from and meet her family 🙂  I can’t wait until their wedding day!


This morning, I woke up and was ready to run.  I pounded out 5 miles at about a 9 min pace.  I sure felt pretty great about that!

Today, I plan on preparing food for the week, and clipping some coupons.  Gotta love getting the Sunday paper!

My mom and I are also headed to the Perfect Wedding Guide Bridal Show for the day.  She has never been to anything like this before, and wanted to do a little mother daughter bonding.  I have only been to one before, and that was with my sister about 6 months ago.  It should be a blast!  Hopefully we will get lots of great ideas…and free goodies 😉

Have a great Sunday!
