Love is in the air

The sun is shining and life is good. Sometimes the hustle and bustle makes me forget about how great life really is. I am a fit and healthy woman who has worked hard for what she has. Even thought I might not have everything I want, who does. I am working my way to a state of peace not perfection.

Love is in the air, and all around. If I can love myself one step at a time and love every day for what it is then I will be one day and one step closer to peace. Step back and looking at the big picture instead of tearing apart the world one thread at a time.

I wanted to get a little philosophical for a minute. I was thinking about how I should write down what my goals were for this month and checking in on them. Then I noticed I didn’t create any technical goals, my one main goal for all time is to be happy and love life. This is a lot harder than one would think. I will start a new set of goals at the end of the month and really focus on loving myself. After all what else can you do when the world is about to end? 😉

Wedding venues and fun with friends

May 17, 2011

The search continues

As we are fairly new to the wedding planning game we have only looked at about 3 possible venues. I somewhat feel like Goldilocks and the 3 bears when it comes to venue searching.

:::cue dream music, and picture me with long flowing blond hair:::

When Alylocks had to go on a magical search for the perfect venue she came into quite a predicament. The first venue was just a little too small when she looked. Alylocks furrowed her brow and thought “however will I fit my guests in the beautiful but small location?” When she looked at the second venue she thought, “O my this is beautiful but such a far walk from the cars. How will I ever make it a comfortable walk for my guests?” The 3rd Venue was very cute but had only 1 main bathroom. This was proving to be a very challenging job for Alylocks, so she decided to sit and drink a glass of wine until the next appointment was booked to look at another venue.

So far I have not fount “the perfect” location yet. I am very hopeful that the perfect one will come up soon and until then the search continues. Tonight we are looking at the Brazillian room in TIlden park. I am hopeful for this location because Jason and I have a close fondness to Tilden park and we also took our engagement photos there last thursday. The Brazillian room is having an open house with catering and I am assuming it wiill be dressed up! I will make sure to post some pictures of the contenders when I think I have some. Until then I will be Hopefully? stuffing my face with delicious catering that will be competing for my love! Wedding planning is the best, when the stress dies down.

I miss you

I have to say I miss my blog. I have been so busy between Half-Iron man training, wedding planning and a full time job; there just isn’t enough hours in the day.

What’s been going on with me Lately?

If you don’t know what my wedding colors are yet, then you either don’t talk to me ever or barely read my blog, or you just forgot and I forgive you. The hint is in the writing 😉

With that I have been scouring online to find a cute dress to wear to my Hawaiian themed engagement party. I don’t want to jinx anything yet but I might have found a contender today! If it is picked there will be pictures to come.

I have some amazing family members and friends who are helping pull together the engagement party of the year. I am really excited to see everyone together and celebrate this truly special moment in my life.

Engagement photo shoot!

I don’t have pictures yet but we took our engagement photos last Thursday evening in Tilden Park. Ill give you a few clues of what you might see, A bright red barn, a beautiful green field and two people in love 🙂 More to come when the pictures come out!

Working out and losing weight

I have been struggling with the losing part. I am really trying to get my game face on and really tackle the last 10-15 pounds I want to lose for the wedding. I have over a year so it should happen eventually. I just don’t want to get too discouraged as I am trying to get it going. I also have been back in triathlon training and hoping that does some good things for the weight loss goals. We shall see, but as of now I am pretty much back to where I started in previous posts, which is fine because I am still down 25 pounds from 2 years ago.

Lets get this week off to an amazing start shall we? I am going to come write here at least 2 times! Now that is a commitment I can keep!
