Well, another week has gone by and I’m still without internet at my house, which makes it very difficult to blog. No matter how many great post ideas I have! But, it’s Wednesday and that means another addition of “What I Wore Wednesday”. I was craving comfort and sensibility today, so I went with a very laid-back look. Wearing my favorite shoes and probably the most comfortable pants I own, I approached my day with ease.

I hope everyone else enjoyed their day and once my internet is finally running, I’ll share all about our new house project!

It’s “What I Wore Wednesday” and this morning I had summer romance on my mind thanks to all the amazing Simply Loves Wedding & Design weddings currently filling my brain! So I picked out the most feminine, flowery dress complete with ruffles that I could find. Added some pearls and bangles for extra fun and voila! A perfect summer look! {I did toss around the idea of a woven belt, but I wore a cardigan this morning and I didn’t want the belt to compete. I probably should have opted for the belt! HA!}

We spent most of our night last Wednesday watching American Idol {Phil Phillips *sigh*} and assembling wedding invitations for one happy couple. Simple, modern and classic these invitations definitely set the stage for a what is sure to be an AMAZING day!

I love how the ladies at Paper Rock Scissor truly captured this couple’s modern and elegant personalities on some sheets of paper that creatively communicated the day’s events all while making assembly effortless! {bonus for me!} I just know guests will be as thrilled as I am once these gorgeous grey shimmer envelops arrive in their mailboxes!

Enjoy a sneak peek of all our work and make sure to check out the adorable Paper Rock Scissor for more fabulous custom paper creations!

Well, I’m definitely not proving to be the best “blogger” in the world, but as with all new adventures and habits this will take time and dedication to improve! And it will improve, so please keep reading!

That being said, I only have a couple of quick mintues and with all the things I want to write about, today will be a “blog in list”. I saw a good friend blog in list a couple weeks back and thought it was brilliant. Hopefully she doesn’t get mad that I took her idea, haha, but when you have too much to say and little time, you have to make it work!

{1} I truly believe I am one lucky girl. Probably for reasons most people consider themselves lucky or blessed, but I think it’s worth acknowledging and saying out loud every once in awhile.

{2} Today is so BEAUTIFUL in Minneapolis, that I enjoyed another peaceful lunch with coworkers outside on our picnic table. When you have lunches like that, who can complain?

{3} Yesterday was my mom’s 60th birthday. I wish I was able to be home and celebrate with her. Happy Birthday Mom! I love you!

{4} In my quest to give up sugar, I am happy to say that I can now actually taste all the natural sugar in fruit! HA! And did you know that one banana has 17 grams? It’s just crazy to be really enjoying all the natural things God has given us after spending so many years eating man-made crap! And not feeling like I’m missing out on anything!

{5} ‘Tis the season! The hubby has been working like crazy that we haven’t had much time to see each other. However, we still managed to find time for TWO date nights in the past TWO weeks! Gotta keep those “honeymoon” sparks a flyin’ when life steps in!

{6} I have book another WEDDING!!! I’m beyond THRILLED and honored to be a part of Julia + Mike’s special day.. which, btw, will be AMAZING because that girl has some serious style!

{7} In step with my “no sugar” lifestyle, I have started to adjust my overall nutrition as well. I’ve always heard “diets make abs” but never followed through with it. Well, boy, do DIETS MAKE ABS!! Believe me! Goals- here I come!

{8} I have been invited {and accepted of course} to attend one of my bride’s showers this weekend. These are the moments that people forget and rush through during the engagement period that really hold value and meaning to a union. Don’t rush them. They are as precious as the day!

{9} Today is Administrative Professionals Day and if you know me, I HATE being called an admin.. but I do love the appreciation of flowers, cards and lunches. So, thank you! {even though I’m only doing my job! hehe}

{10} It’s “What I Wore Wednesday” {a new addition to the blog} and I knew it would be a great day when I pulled together such a fun outfit with little to no effort at all! These are the mornings that make me smile.

Enjoy your day!

It’s finally time that I stop dying the truth. I have been working out on and off for the past 8 years. Taking bootcamp classes before work, cycling on weekends and running myself crazy. But no matter how hard I work, I could never seem to achieve my goal. For the love of the Lord, all I want is a six-pack, is that too much to ask?? HA!

With all the books and magazines I read, I’ve known for years that it takes more than hard work and hours at the gym for a whittled waistline. However for as long as I can remember, I’ve had this wonderful, loving relationship with SUGAR that I just can’t seem to let go.

That being said, I’m tired of spending money on trainers, races and classes for nothing. Sure, I’m stronger and I can run longer but I’m still not seeing the results that I’ve always wanted! So, I think it’s finally time that I listen to what I already knew and say good-bye to my dear dear friend. We’ve had more than 30 amazing years together and I’m truely going to miss our morning drinks {Caribou Northern Light White Chocolate Moca} or our late night snacks {Dairy Queen Buster Bar Blizzard}, but I have to admit, I think that I’m going to love my new six pack more! HA!
