Brian and I have been doing a great job at sticking to our 6 weeks to 6 miles training program.

According to the schedule, Mondays mean a 3 mile run, so as soon as I got home from work last night Brian and I geared up and got read to run.

A giant Mexican style salad.

Last night’s salad was a bed of romaine and spinach topped with salsa, baked cod, guacamole, black olives, corn, and onion.  It was tasty to say the least!  Even though we eat this meal ALL. THE. TIME.  I don’t think it will ever get old for either of us!

Wedding Update

I can’t believe how FAST time is flying by!  Today officially marks 31 days until the wedding, when in reality it still feels as if we are a recently engaged couple! Where have the past 2 years and 3 months gone??

Because the wedding date is getting very close, I am trying to tie up all of the loose ends NOW so that in 2 weeks I am not running around like a crazy bride-lady…even though that will probably happen anyway 😉

Yesterday, my sister and I met with my florist, Lilly Lane, to see some of the flowers that will be used in the bouquets at the wedding.

My mom and her graphic design background have been such a huge help with all of the print items for our wedding, invitations included.

We are only using the fonts on the logo, and the pink on the logo is the pink of the bridesmaid dresses and flowers.  I love it when things are matchy matchy and consistent.

We love them!

Now, all of the invitations are out and every single day it is like a little present that Brian and I get to open up together when we get an RSVP card 🙂

I can’t believe that we only have one month until the BIG day!
