Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Mine was rather busy, but I can’t complain! I did every thing I had hoped I would accomplish .. and am thoroughly exhausted! Crazy storms made their way through parts of CT on Friday – but it didn’t keep my from where I needed to go!
Friday – I made my way up to my parents house and had a special evening planned with my trainer. He does photo shoots every so often (this is where the picture in the center of my header came from) .. and he invited me to come on Friday and do another one.
I have a lot of fun with the girls when I do this, so I happily accetpted. Trainer AJ wants me to update my bio to talk about how I continue to utilize the knowledge, exercises, and techniques that I gained while training with him on a regular basis – to help guide me in my healthy lifestyle and keep myself strong, lean, and fit. AJ is no joke.. and will kick my ass in a second.. which is exactly what he did on Saturday morning when I went to his group training class. He knows I have my wedding coming up – so I told him some of my problem areas and he totally catered the workout to my needs. He knows I will continue to do the work at home.. which is exactly why I went out to my car and wrote down the exercises after class!
I spent a majority of Saturday running other errands and doing things around the house (and perhaps got a little bit of pool time!). When Sunday rolled around, I boot camped it in the morning – and then laid by the pool in the afternoon with my MOH! She came down to catch up – chat .. and then accompany me to my second bridal shower – which was hosted by my future mother in law.
The shower was held at Rye Bar and Grill – and was so beautiful. My FMIL did an awesome job of putting everything together. She chose a beautiful venue that served delicious food. Everyone was so kind and loving – and I truly felt welcome (as I always do) into this new side of my family!
After unloading the cars, I thought I’d just relax, but I decided I wanted to start taking everything out of the box and putting it away. 5473 cardboard cuts later… I am still not done – and was really tired! But today is another day and I am sure I will get a lot more accomplished today!
Well.. maybe. Now I have one of these babies to play with!
