dude i am so stoked!

on oct 25, after reading the south beach diet book, i decided to do a modification of the diet. now i only eat carbs during the day, none at night. also, more veggies because i eat way too much fruit. also, whole grains (like whole wheat pasta) instead of refined carbs. one night a week i allow myself to cheat. i work nights and it is a bit harder to not eat carbs at night when i'm off.

this past weekend i bought a scale. and i told B that i was only allowed to weigh myself on Wednesdays, which we nicknamed 'weigh-in wednesday'. well today i couldn't help it, i weighed myself. and i lost a couple of lbs! yay!  AND i tried on my 'skinny' jeans and black clubbing pants and they fit me again. i didn't have to fight my way into the jeans like i normally do and suck in my stomach when i try to zip up. the black clubbing pants are a little snug, like i wouldn't feel comfortable bending over to freak someone in fear of the pants splitting at the seams.   hehe. getting there though!

Sweet! Lol...I haven't read the South Beach Diet Book, but I've been trying to get myself to eat healthier and get back in shape! Unfortunately, today's food was comprised of cinnamon donut holes, lots of coffee, pizza, french fries, and cherry 7up. But your healthy eating is motivating me! Good luck with all of your plans, and let me know how your invitation making goes! I'm making my invites and save the dates, and I love hearing how everyone else is doing! G'luck!!

Great invitation website! I love the stuff they have, just don't know if I want to make them all myself. My parents are inviting way to many people, LOL.

I like the one that you chose too! It will go great with your color scheme.

today i met with linda from floral poetry at this cute little stationary boutique called TruSo in Del Mar.  they even offer you tea and cookies, how cute is that.
linda was so nice! and so organized! she even had a cute little portfolio thing typed out with all these suggestions and a little about their company and what was included in their estimates. her work is gorgeous. i was blown away. i am looking forward to getting that proposal!

4 more florists to go and i'm done... hope to get that all finalized before the end of the year.

FH and i went to san francisco this past weekend for his brother's wedding. i was so impressed by how much the bride and groom DIDN'T have to do the day before their wedding because they had taken care of it the previous week. all the wedding talk though had me worked up and i ended up having another wedding nightmare the day before the wedding. this time i had a dream that i showed up to my wedding in the wrong dress. it was like bright red. yikes! how dumb am i in my dreams? obviously dumb enough to not look in the mirror .  wow that was crazy though.
so the rehearsal was on friday night. it was very chaotic. it wasn't even my wedding and i was stressing out.  the quote of the night was from the bride, 'i don't know where people are supposed to stand, i've never planned a fricken wedding before!!!!'

oh dear god. i am so getting a wedding coordinator!!!  she did have one but hers was stuck in traffic and didn't get there until the last 15 minutes of the rehearsal which by that time, was pointless.  poor bride.

the RD was cool though. we went to this mexican restaurant and the food was good. i was very good and did not eat any chips, even though people kept offering me them because i told them i wasn't gonna have any. bastards.

so on saturday was the actual wedding. it was a full catholic mass ceremony. i felt so bad for the bride because when it was her turn to walk in, she was accompanied by her father and her SCREAMING toddler!  omg!  i woulda totally died! you could tell she was pissed off. shoot, i would be too. other than that, it was nice. there were some small little snafus but none as bad as that entrance.

FH went with the bridal party since he was one of two best men. i took his parents over to the reception and hung out with FH's sister, husband, and 3 kids. i was very impressed by the decoration of the reception hall.  very pretty. i also liked the bridal party flowers. the food was really good too. i didn't eat any carbs but i sure as hell ate a lot of everything else. oops!  hehe.

well my favorite part of the evening was FH's best man speech. it was kinda funny because there were two best men, 1 maid of honor and 1 matron of honor. so the dj said they were gonna do their toasts, boy girl, boy girl. now when i think of 'toast' at a wedding, i automatically think of toast AND speech. apparently, not FH. so he went first and did his toast which was really short, which i wasn't too surprised over because he likes to keep things simple. but then everyone went after him and there were the speeches/toast. so then FH ran up to the dj and told him that he thought they were different and wanted to do his real speech! 

omg. 10 seconds into his speech and i was already crying. it was real touching and i am tearing up now just thinking about it. basically he was saying how when his brother was born, he was really excited about having a younger brother (they are 7 yrs apart). and how they always played together. but then as they got older, they grew apart and weren't even brothers anymore. it was like they were strangers. but then when his brother met his future bride, him and FH started getting close again. it was really the cutest thing. FH's brother got up from the head table and ran to FH and they were all hugging and crying then FH's sister ran up there too. it truly was a kodak moment.

we danced a lot that night too. that was fun. it was cute because FH also danced with his mom, the cha cha. it was nice seeing the whole family interact with each other. it made me real happy and warm inside.

what got me was that the bride and groom got pretty drunk but by the end of the night seemed ok, but not totally sober. the groom said to me, 'man i am sooo tired!' i mean he seriously looked about ready to pass out. whoa, what about the whole wedding night consumation thing!  so much pressure for one day! anyway i had a great time. and FH looked very handsome in his tux!!!

yesterday i went back to the paper souce in the city and got my envelopes. i was also going to buy the flat cards but am holding off on them. i just had to get the envelopes though. they are so cute!!!

well yesterday was weigh-in wednesday. and i am still the same weight as the previous wednesday. i believe that is due to the fact that i ate an incredible amount of food this past weekend, hehe.  no worries, i've already hopped back on the wagon. even if i lose a 1/2 lb by next wednesday i'll be happy.  slowly but surely, that's what i keep telling myself.

i've become a bit of a trader joe's junkie ever since i started this whole south beach modification.  i admit, there are very good for some things. like fat free milk with no rBST hormone. only $1.49 a half gallon. usually i buy my half gallon fat free milk WITH rBST hormone at vons for $2.39    another thing they are good for is hot and cold cereals, and whole grain breads.  heh i went there the other day and was looking at the flourless breads and this little old lady says to me, 'how in the world do they get flourless bread?' and i said, 'beats me, but i think i'll try it!' and she goes, 'well if you are, then i guess i will too.'     their whole wheat pastas too are very nicely priced (99 cents!). i was so excited about my finds that i told my friend mike about them because he called while i was there. so now he wants me to take him grocery shopping next week so that's what i plan on doing tuesday before work. we're gonna go to the hillcrest whole foods and trader joe's. i've never been to those ones so i'm a bit excited. i'm such a food junkie   i told him though that with food, you totally have to pick your battles. like is it really worth it to drive 15min out of your way to save less than a dollar on milk?  well i can always go during my lunch break at work since TJ's is closer. that wouldn't be so bad.  but i bought enough milk and bread (and stuck it in the freezer) from TJ's to last another month so it's not like i am going every week. so yeah i think it's ok. yay for good food!

Aww, your FI toast sounded so sweet! Too bad for the bride's screaming toddler! She'll have something to tease her kid about when she gets older though! Yay for Trader Joes! I don't shop there that often, but when I do I really enjoy it. The one here in Ann Arbor is way better than the one in La Jolla. You don't have to fight crazy car traffic!!
