After a lazy, sleepy morning, I was pretty clueless about what to make for breakfast. Ultimately I went with a combination of almost everything in the pantry. (Note: I left the black beans behind. I didn’t think those tastes would mesh.)
Consumed: 1/4 C oats cooked with 1/2 C water. Topped with frozen blueberries, Great Harvest granola, almond butter and a side of non-fat blueberry Greek yogurt.
I don’t know whether I should blame it on the sleepy haze I was still in or just my own weirdness, but I’m also clueless as to how I ended up with two spoons…
I spent the remainder of the morning watching Dan and his dad chop a bunch of wood outside. For the record, that’s really not a bad activity as long as I get to watch from the comfort of indoors…
I also worked on my continual scanning of possible venues for the wedding. Believe it or not, I already have the church booked and my dress bought. Still, with a quickly-approaching July 16, 2011 date, I really need to stay on top of the planning.
But, I’m taking the same approach with wedding-related stress as I do with any kind of stress: I get in a good workout and sweat it out!
Today, I talked Dan’s sister into going to the local athletic club with me. One of the greatest things about small towns is that there is a lot of generosity floating around. For example, I got an unlimited winter break pass for just $10. I would have expected to pay that for just one visit!
The only problem was that there were some unfamiliar machines, so I was clueless about what to do. I went with the easy options of some time on the elliptical and treadmill.
It was pretty late by the time Dan’s sister and I made it back home, but instead of getting lunch, I hopped back on the computer for some more wedding research. Somewhere along the way, I ended up eating an easy lunch of an apple and some flatbread with hummus and cheese. I’m just clueless as to why I didn’t snap any pictures.
Here’s the truth: If there is one main thing I’m really, really clueless about, it’s planning a wedding. I’ve never been to a wedding before, let alone had a hand in planning one. Now, with my own wedding at stake, I’m just a little stressed out about getting it all right. I’m not the type to sweat the really small details, but I also want it to be reflective of Dan and me.
So far, I’ve been really lucky to have the support of my mom and Dan’s mom. Still, I know it’s going to be a big learning experience for me… Only I don’t have the chance to get it wrong!
I did step away from it all for a much-needed relaxing and mostly wedding-talk free evening.
To round it all out, I went with some delicious Great Harvest rolls. I swear that place makes no bad products!
After dinner, Dan and I challenged his parents to some card games. In other words, there was a lot of laughing, a lot of good spirits and a lot of fun… All things that remind me why the wedding planning is worth it.
Even if I am clueless about it all.
(BIG, SERIOUS) Questions: Have you ever been to a wedding? Have you ever helped plan a wedding? Do you have any advice?
