Hey Hey Everyone,
I'm here, I'm here! I go away for 10-12 days and no one decides to start a new thread...seriously I was checking in to 'read' every once in a while hoping SOMEONE would just do it...LOL
I had a FABULOUS wedding...I will share pictures when I get my hands on one of the pictures that isn't fuzzy and has our eyes open, I promise (VIP said I could post one of him too so I'll wait till I find a 'gooder' - which I think considering my standards are "not fuzzy and both eyes open" - shouldn't be hard but you'd be surprised). My sisters were my maids of honour and then my mom gave me away so there wasn't too many 'pictures' taken by family as I had hired a photographer for the whole day so that we could all rely on him to document the day and we'd not have to worry about it. I asked him for 'one' about a week ago...trying not to pressure him to much HAHA!
I got everything I wanted.....and now I have a husband! WOW, just typing that sounds funny and yet thrilling to me. I randomly said "my husband" today...it kinda made the butterflies flutter in my tummy. I have a husband AND a step son...whoa! I feel so 'responsible' now HA! (I also sound a little too mushy now that I've read what I typed but I'll leave it so you can all roll your eyes at me)
We didn't get married until 6 pm and had wine and dessert for a reception and then a dance. I didn't stop, all I wanted to do was dance dance dance. We had a photo booth with Princess Leia and Boba Fett in it
and my cake topper was bobble heads of me and VIP (I was Leia and he was Fett).
We went off to BC for our honeymoon to a little cabin b&b in the Kootenay Rockies region. We did NOTHING for two full days. There was a little kitchenette so we could pay attention to our eating...but really I fully enjoyed the champagne (we had chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us the first night)...AND right before our wedding we finally found the cider that I fell in love with in Scotland...at a speciality store close to home (so I had some of that during my honeymoon too) We went for a hike, naps...movies...45 km full day white water raft...off to Fort Steele heritage town. I was very sad when it was over and my mom said "don't be sad, plan another trip like that!" - to which I realized I get to do it MORE THEN once if I plan it right!
My mom gave us an oversize king size quilt complete with pillow shams, throw pillows and bed skirt (the label handstitched into it is of my wedding invitation).
She finally figured out how to get me to make my bed EVERYDAY!
...I started my wedding day at 162.2...and today I was 165.8. I've had some quasi Phase 1 days...to which it wasn't perfect but it was clean enough to bring me down to where tomorrow I'll be eating my normal way of eating (3 days of 'quasi clean' - which means no sugar but I was lax on the fat intake and allowed more of it then would be considered for a Phase 1 day). June was also my first month to not track and trust in my decisions...considering it was my wedding month I think I did pretty well so I'll consider this an NSV.
I did keep up with everyone, I'm sorry that it's a 'me' post. I promise to be better later on this week!
