Sorry for the lack of blogging. It has been a whirlwind of nonstop activity since Ben has got home. Non stop wedding prep!
On todays list is to download and burn music for the reception, get a spray tan, get Ben's brother and wife from the airport to name a few.
I can't wait to post the picture but just telling will have to do for now. Ben got me the BEST present from the Arctic....a dancing walrus statue. I have a patented dork dance that I've done since my freshman year of college, and this gift captures it perfectly.
I had a lovely dinner last night with the ladies in my Sunday School class at the Cheesecake Factory. I think that I can learn a lot about life from these wise women.
I am also thrilled to report how much less pain I have in my back. The Chiropractor has done amazing things the past two months. It is sort of like when I was really heavy, I had no idea how exhausted I was because they had become my normal. Then I lose the weight and feel so much better...the same thing is true with my back.
We went to get Ben's tux yesterday, and it was too small. I truly think it was error in measurement because the lady only spent two minutes fitting him. We just measured two weeks ago. I consoled Ben and told him that if he had really gained that much weight he shouldn't be able to button his pants. Man it is amazing how deep some memories stay with you. Instantly, my mind flashes back to my sister's wedding. I had the largest size the dress would come in and I still barely squeezed into they dress with a full length girdle.
I had a really cool thought last week regarding clothing. I was looking at a clothing rack with things on clearance and I thought about buying things for next summer. This was a completely new concept to me. Being SSMO I was always slowing gaining weight, so either an item would get too small or the material would wear out between the thighs. Clothing is not disposable to me anymore.
Off to pack for the honeymoon.
