I'm pretty dang exhausted for today to be a Wednesday though. After finalizing the invitations (for the billionth time) and sending them all out, I feel like I'm slipping away into a coma mid-day. Prepping these invitations have called for some late nights. Josh and I estimated that we'd invite about 170-175 people to the wedding....BAHA yeah no...it ended up being a total of 195 after I figured I'd get a head start on the place cards. I about fell off my exercise ball (it's more entertaining sitting on it than on a chair for hours). 195 PEOPLE. @$#%. How did this even happen? I know how it happened...I don't know how to say, "no you're not important enough to be invited to the wedding so suck it." I'm so beyond happy with how they turned out though. I added a lace detail and tied the response cards, directions and invite together with a ribbon in my color. Oh but because there was a "bump" in each invite because of the knot, the fricken people at the post office said I needed to add another stamp...I swear my wedding has my bank account by the balls.
I know they always say that you can expect about 15% or 20% of people not to show up, but still. Yikes. To make me feel better, I took a break and started to write thank you notes to all of the wonderful ladies that attended the bridal shower on Saturday. I got the cutest thank you cards from Papyrus. Too bad my handwriting is absolutely horrific. I've been professionally trained to write things down at lightening speed which means I've had to sacrifice the quality of my penmanship over the years...to sum it up, you'd think I was a doctor. Too bad I don't have the salary to match! Womp.
This might take awhile....
In other news, I must address the Kimye Vogue cover, being in the industry. Yes, I am deeply ashamed of Kim Kardashian's premiere on the cover of Vogue and I'll make sure that issue somehow lands in Apollo and Luigi's litter box. She can grace the cover of US Weekly or In Touch all she likes, but Vogue? Let us mourn the magazine's esteemed reputation. I'm sure a lot of people are tired of hearing about it, but seriously...WHAT has she done to make her worthy of a spread in Vogue?! Oh yes that's right..it MUST be because of that amazing hit single she had back in 2011, "Jam Turn It Up" and because of her appearance in that short feature film she starred in....hmmm...MOVING ON. Laugh it up Naomi.We all know what you were thinking during that interview. You want to rip Kim's extensions out.
In more uplifting news, I've been keeping up with my workouts, eating properly and feeling awesome. Whenever I feel like I'm about to fall off the fitness wagon, I make sure to regroup and focus on my goals. Subscribing to some health and fitness magazines is a great way to do that too. It keeps fitness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle in your head. HOWEVER I do feel that if you deprive yourself of what you love TOO much, you'll go overboard and find yourself on your kitchen floor eating out of a tub of ice cream or inhaling a family-sized bag of chips...or in my case...drinking Starbucks beverages. I've cut back significantly and my skinny vanilla lattes are cals that I can easily burn off throughout the day. You just have to choose your battles wisely....and in my case, this bride-to-be just needs her skinny lattes...in moderation of course.
