Holy crap a blog post? Wow! I cant believe its been over a month since I updated everyone (or even posted at all!)
I am back and with some great updates!
He is doing pretty well! We are definitely still having some issues with him going pee outside of his litter box. We are not quite sure what is going on there...GRR. Other than that, we have actually been able to get him down about 2 pounds which should help with the disease he has. We have also switched to dry food from wet food to see if he can handle that. Time will only tell with that one!
We have also had our baby gate on our stairs for a couple of weeks now. And let me tell you, it works! He starts meowing in the morning when he hears us get up but other than that, we have been able to get quite a few solid nights of sleep!
Weight Loss Update:
I am still hovering at about 154 right now. Nutrition and working out...both have been a struggle to be honest. I hate only doing cardio but I know that is what I need to do to loose weight. But then I miss lifting weights but when I do that I gain weight. It is such a struggle! But with 6 weeks to go, I am going to make cardio my friend. It just needs to happen!
My first fitting was on August 18th...and it zipped all the way up! The hips definitely needed to be let out but that is all the seamstress wanted to do. Which makes me one happy person! My second fitting is one week from tomorrow and that is where we are going to be looking at the bottom of the dress to put in a bustle.
45 days....45 DAYS! The time is just coming up so fast and I have a feeling it is just going to go by faster! This weekend is my shower in Fargo that my mom is hosting, the next weekend is my shower in the Twin Cities hosted by my future sister-in-law/bridesmaid Ashley. The weekend after that is Bill's bachelor party. THEN ITS OCTOBER... That first weekend is my bachelorette party, then (tentative) College Game Day for NDSU in Fargo, then last weekend before the wedding...and then wedding weekend!!
We have been able to cross quite a few things off our list. Those being: engagement pictures are done (still waiting on getting them back but I have no worries!), we met with our venue and are looking over food options, we met with our officiant and are working on our ceremony, I met up with a friend and we tackled some of the centerpieces, my mom and brother's girlfriend punched out some more hearts for me (my hand thanks you!) and we have father's tuxes figured out.
Although we have been able to get those things done there are still decisions that need to be made: figuring out the cake, wedding guest book, other decorations that I am on the fence about, figuring out the big 4 (something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue), table numbers (who knew figuring out how to display table numbers would be so hard?!), deciding on final details of programs and I Spy game, MY shoes, some of the gifts, timelines for both Friday and Saturday, and meeting with/talking with DJ for music.
The days are dwindling but I have no doubt that these things will fall into place!
Yesterday I posted this picture on Facebook/Instagram:
I placed an order off of Blue Apron and got this meal out of it. Blue Apron is a service that delivers 3 meals per week right to your front door step. They provide pretty much everything except for things like salt and pepper. So instead of me telling you how I made it I have added a screen clipping of the description off of Blue Apron (ps, if you click the title--it will take you to the recipe). I think this is one of the best home made meals I have made in quite some time. If you try it, you'll definitely have to let me know how they turned out for you!
