I'm Baaa-aaaa-aaack!

I know. I win the Worst Blogger Award. I can't believe I've been away for like a week. It kind of sickens me...haha. But I've been super busy, and computers are hard to grab with enough time to post and upload pictures! Even now, I don't really have any... Haha.

So I'll just update you guys, and promise to give a full photo filled post later, and by later I mean tomorrow at the earliest. I'm on vacaqtion... Don't judge me! Haha. Just kidding, I know y'all of all people understand that blogging is more than just typing a few quick words. We put so much effort into these posts, and even when I'm way behind on reading on your blogs, please know I think of all you guys all the time! Luckily my friedns have gotten used to hearing, "I have to blog about this!" Haha.

Let's see. Biggest news I have? I. BOUGHT. MY. WEDDING. DRESS. It wasn't one of the Disney Dresses I mentioned before, but it was perfect. The saying is true that 'you'll know your dress when you try it on.' It brought tears to my eyes. I won't post it here, because my groom reads this all the time, and I feel he might get curious and sneaky! Haha. But I did take a bunch of photos of the dress I won't be wearing, and I think I will post those, since it doesn't count! I'm unable to on this computer, so it will have to wait. Sorry. Haha. I'm such a brat sometimes.

Speaking of brat, I went totally Bridezilla on my mom and cousin/bridesmaid today. Well more like 2 year old tantrum (I think I've been hanging with my godbaby too much lately... She's rubbing off on me). Totally cut the day short and filled with drama, but I eventually calmed down, apologized to my poor cousin, and am back on track. Holy cow are weddings stressful!

On Saturday I took Baby Bro and my goddaughter to the zoo. After a super huge 30 minute tantrum from Akemi (my little angelface....sometimes!), it was a very pleasant day. Though I did learn some things, like bring your own food. I spent 30 minutes waiting in line to pay way too much for unhealthy food for us. Ridiculous. But, it was a fun day, and the kids had a really good time.

Tomorrow was going to be a beach day, but the weather here has been totally ugly, and I'm ready for some Florida sunshine! We even had a tornado warning out here at my mom's house. It turned out to be a no-show, but still. Thunderstorms, while my favorite weather, have overstayed their welcome! Haha.

I went on a total shopping spree the other day, and I need to start taking pictures of my outfits!They have been super cute, and I also pierced a second hole in my earlobe! I'm such a military rebel. It's just the start to my 'civilian life', haha. I promise to be better about posting, and pictures!

Eating has been touch and go. Sometimes (actually most of the time, considering what all I'm exposed to... this morning we stopped at Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts and all I got was a fat free chai tea latte) I've been watching my food, but then there days I go crazy. Hello cake pops... Haha.

Exercise was pretty lackluster at first, but this week has been much better. Haven't been running much, but I have been letting P90X Insanity kick my butt. I have to stop it during the workouts, since I feel like I'm going to throw up if I dont' take breaks. Today I had to cut it short, because I'm a retard and ate ice cream shortly before I started. Silly girl. Oh well. You live and learn. I think I'm going to try and run tomorrow, I honestly just miss it. I also got the Jillian Michael's 6Week 6Pack and her Yoga video, and I really want to try those. :) So I may take an off day from P90X tomorrow and do those instead. :)

My mother and 'grandmother' (she's basically my grandmother!) have taught me to play Canasta, and now I'm addicted. Haha. Weird, I know, but it's so much fun! I'm such an old lady. I crochet, play Bingo and Canasta, and do needlepoint. Where's the nearest retirement home?!

Well I love you guys, and I'll TRY to catch up on blogs the next day I have free.... Though that might not be until Friday. And even then my bestie and I are baking cake pops and cupcakes for my mom's party on Saturday... But I'll try! I miss y'all! Have a great weeeeeeeek!

  2. yayyyy for the wedding dress!! It sounds like you're having an awesome time in your "civilian" life lol. Can't wait to see pics :-)

  3. I'm so glad you're back!! I was just about to send you an email!! :) So happy you found your wedding dress. I bet it's beautiful! And don't feel bad about being MIA for a little! You just got home, girl!

  4. Congrats on the dress!! I remember stepping into ym dress for the first time. When I walked out my sisters jaw just DROPPED. That was when I knew :)

  5. Congrats on finding the dress! Don't feel too bad about having a bridezilla moment. It's hard not to lose your sanity when planning an event that big and expensive!

    Glad you are back and looking forward to pictures!

  6. AHHH! I wanna see your dress!!! When is the wedding again? How long do I have to wait?? I know it will just be PERFECT on you! Also looking forward to the next post with the dress you didn't choose. I just love wedding dresses in general and it's such a fun reminder that YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED! :D

    Also, bridezilla/tantrum moments happen. It's okay. The important thing was that you realized it and apologized. That is a lot better than a lot of people. :)

    Yes! I totally wanna see pictures of all your new outfits!

    Sounds like you are still keeping your eating pretty balanced. It's okay to go a little nuts from time to time... I mean, you just got back to the States. ;)

  7. Congrats on finding the dress! Embrace the 'zilla - you'll be happy you did.

  8. that is so exciting! i love the idea of posting the dresses that didn't make the cut on here! you should totally do a trash the dress photo shoot after the wedding!
