FAMILY FROM OUR WEDDING

MONDAY ~ WEDDING BLURB AND A SHOE QUESTION FOR ALL YOU SHOE MAVENS OUT THERE.. ohhh and yes there is some healthy talk too..

Well... 3 more Saturdays and then POOF its the wedding the next day.. wow.. thats a bit of trip.. I was at our synagogue yesterday and I walked in the sanctuary.. stood in the back and imagined what it would be like.. it was really an overwhelming feeling knowing I would be married in the very room I had grown up in..knowing that as I child I roamed all over this building.. knowing that very soon.. nothing would change .. but everything would change.. mainly just my name.. though Steve and I have been together for 7 years and lived together at least 5 of those 7.. so nothing will really change in that respect... but now I can say .. please meet my husband.. wow.. I like how that sounds.. and I like the idea that I will be his wife.. not his girlfriend anymore.. or his special friend.. * whats the deal with that.. * so we far we have about 190 people attending.. this week we get our marriage license and I think we might even pick out our wedding bands.. keeping it very simple.. white gold bands.. very simple. I am far more excited than I am nervous. I simply want everyone to have a nice time.. and I am working hard not to try and micromanage everything.. ( yes I tend to do that and not ask for help until I am about to pull my hair out ) today I have 75 people that I have no idea if they are coming or not and all response cards should be in by the 25th.. thats when the hotel releases the rooms.. so everyone needs to have their room reserved by this thursday.. I started calling people on my list that had not responded yet.. to make sure they had indeed gotten an invitation.. most had .. and most said they were coming but they had lost the response card.. ooookay thats fine.. .. out of those 75 5 have already said they are coming.. so I divided the list up.. Steve will call his list... my mom called her list this morning and I am still calling my list... thats a possible 250 attending.. I still think its going to be right around 200... but we shall see...

TIME FOR THE QUESTION ; ANYONE HAVE ANY GOOD IDEAS FOR AN AFTER WEDDING CEREMONY SHOE THAT I CAN WEAR FOR THE RECEPTION SO I CAN HAVE HAPPY FEET AND DANCE?? that concluded the exciting blurb on where I am at with the wedding planning...

I just logged my food in.. I have gotten to where I am logging my food 5 days a week now so that is good.. and I am seeing that I need to still reel in the calorie count just a bit or so.. but otherwise my eating is good..
Logging food.. I know its boring.. I know its time consuming.. I know you hate it.. but simply just do it.. Logging your food in take is the best thing you can do as you journey down the scale.. be it logging your food on your blog or keeping a food journal at one of the many sites out there.. If I were to ask you to do anything for yourself its be honest and log what you eat so you really can know your calorie intake.. its another one of those helpful tools..

I loved those black bean brownies and am now looking at scratch recipes for them.. I want to cut back on the sugar a bit and make it with real dutch processed cocoa to give it that dark chocolate edge.. very yummy fudgy treat as is though..

Well I am going blogging now..
Wish me well
Wish you well too..

WOW, so close to the big day and you'll be a Mrs!! I'm so happy for you!!

As for the shoes, one of my friends bought a pair of white Isotoner slippers and put those on for the all night dancing. I've heard that Easy Spirit are comfy. Why not get a little pair of ballet flats. I've seen that style everywhere this year, you'll probably be able to find a cute and comfy little pair.

I suggest ballet flats, comfy and classy, or classy flip flops

Lynn said...

I have nice fancy high heels for the ceremony and the comfy white slippers w/ rhinestones for the reception!

I can't believe the wedding is that close!

Shoes: My sister-in-law bought plain white tennis shoes (the $4 ones from Walmart). Then she got some lacy ribbon and used that as laces and hot glued a very pretty white flower at the toe. They looked cute and had to be comfortable!
