Thank you to Natasha for hosting Five on Friday & Leslie for hosting Friday Confessions.
1. My save the dates came in yesterday! Ahhh!!!
I cannot even talk about how excited I am. I LOVE the way they turned out. So perfect and simple. I need to mail them out by the first week of February, but I am still looking for inspiration for the calligraphy on the envelopes. I can't decide how I want it to look. Thoughts?
I confess.... that my Save the Dates are in neutral colors because I still haven't selected my wedding colors. I am just way to indecisive.
2. In other wedding news, I am having coffee with a wedding planner today.
I never thought I would consider a wedding planner, but now I am. I am just not sure I have the time or creative genius to make the day what I want it to be. I don't expect to get a full planning package, but I would like someone to do month of coordinating. What do you think?
I confess... that I had a conversation with a wedding designer and she asked me so many questions that I nearly panicked. I felt SO overwhelmed. She had a million things that I had never even thought about - but that is why is was incredibly helpful.
3. This dinner.
I threw this in the crockpot on Wednesday and we loved it!
Chicken and Wild Rice Stew (based on this recipe)
I confess... All of my meals were made in the crockpot. Even my breakfast porridge that I reheated each morning. I am so so lazy.
4. A new cleaning schedule.
If you spend .08648 seconds with me, you will notice that I am extremely concerned about keeping things neat and clean. Some might say obsessive ;)
I found this pin before the new year and have been loving the schedule! It keeps me from having massive cleaning days and spreads it throughout the week. This way, I never have a "my apartment is such a mess" moment. #success.
I confess... I picked all the jobs I don't like doing and told AR he was responsible for them. And he said yes. Hahah.
5. Back into running
Last week, running clicked for me again. I have blogged several times about my lack of enthusiasm for running post-Chicago Marathon. I let it go, did tons of yoga and strength training, and only ran when I felt like it. For the last two weeks, I have done 4-5 miles a day and enjoyed it! I am so excited to be back in the groove a bit (especially because I have a race in 6 weeks).
I confess... I want to register for another fall marathon but AR keeps shaking his head. He says that we should wait for next spring. Let us see who wins ;)
