I'm Walkin' on Sunshine!

So many exciting things happening lately!

First off I hit a major milestone at the gym, and now when i'm running my hardest my heart rate is in the 180's! When I started out I would sometimes get it up past 200!!

Spencer and I found a new ice cream we love! We went to Whole Foods to pick up some pints of Black & Green Organics ice cream, and the fridge was stocked with Purely Decadent ice cream made from coconut milk! I was a little nervous about it at first, but I really love it! It's got an extra little kick of flavor and just tastes fresh and clean for summer!

We decided for our wedding we are going to coordinate the five different cakes by using bows made of modeling chocolate and decorated with brooches on the knot of the bow! So the hunt is on to find pretty brooches. Spencer and I went tonight to an antique mall and found 2 for only $8. I think we're going to start hitting estate sales and garage sales each weekend looking for them as well :)

I have been M.I.A. lately trying to finish up papers, finals and study...but this week is my very last week of class for the semester! I am so excited to leave class on thursday night and be completely done!! (And almost halfway through the program!) So far things are looking good, and i'll be back soon in blogging world able to post a bit more often than I have been, and catch up on all of your lovely blogs!

I finished the Subtle Knife, the second in His Dark Materials series and I really loved it! I always wanted to read these books as a kid and i'm so glad I finally decided to just do it!

And last but definitly not least....
Spencer and I bought our wedding bands today!!!!

This is my wedding band...

and this is Spencer's!

Aren't they lovely?! I just can't wait until I can wear mine everyday!!!

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend, and a beautiful week!!!
