I have been so busy these past few days!!!! My mom and stepdad finally got married!!! They decided two weeks ago to get just finally get married (they have been engaged for almost 2 years) and so on friday, they did! We spent Thursday shopping for clothes for her to wear, friday was the wedding, saturday I spent time with family that was in town and sunday was Easter!
The wedding was really beautiful. A simple ceremony in their home, with close family. They exchanged their vows and my grandmother and his mother signed the marriage certificate. After the ceremony we all went to a lovely dinner at the Hereford House where we toasted to their marriage and had a wonderful meal together for the first time as one big family. I am so excited for my mom, and I know her and Tim are going to be amazingly happy for the rest of their lives. :)
Other than all of the amazing family time I have also been hitting the gym HARD. Since we got our memberships i've only not gone 3 days (thursday, saturday, sunday) and i've been working out for 1.5-2 hours every time I go! I really love being there. The motivation from the people around me, the smiling faces, the out of breath feeling of having done an amazing workout...even the trickle of sweat running down my back that tells me i'm really pushing myself. I love every moment of it!
I havent weighed myself yet, but I can tell the difference in the way my body feels and the way my clothes are fitting.
And on the wedding....I got the BEST news ever!!!! The store I purchased my gown from called on Thursday afternoon to let me know that my gown had been ordered, and Maggie Sottero actually had one in stock! I get my gown in only a few short weeks!!! I will have plenty of time to get it altered to fit perfectly! I just can't wait for it to arrive!
...and I picked my hair for the wedding!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week!
