One Tired Girl


I think I should've worked from home today to allow myself to recuperate from this weekend...it's Monday all over again, and I am already worn out.
Friday night, we tried out a new neighborhood find Rachel told us about for sushi/hibachi...Ninki Japanese Bistro, which turned out to be really good! We ordered 4 of their specialty rolls which quickly made us realize our eyes were bigger than our stomachs--some of our rolls came out on flaming plates so a big A+ for presentation in our book. Afterwards, we headed home and rented "No Strings Attached" with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher--hilariously funny date night movie...totally worth watching!
Saturday morning, I hit the gym and then headed to the parents' for an all-day wedding takeover with Mom. We left at 10AM and didn't return until 9PM so needless to say we were pooped...tackling all the essentials for the OOT bags, painting frames for the rehearsal and reception, ordering my bridal portrait canvas and frame, finalizing menu selections for the bridal brunch, and the list goes on and on. It's officially "wedding headquarters" at their house and now I think my Dad understands just how much we needed to get accomplished.
Sunday, I was back at their house for more crafting and then ran some errands around town...grocery store shopping and such, and then we had our friends Jocelyn and Nick over for a cookout! We laughed, we ate loads of yummy food, and just caught up with some good friends which is always a great way to end a weekend.

This week, my schedule is already jam packed between work and other necessaries...our final wedding counseling meeting with our pastor tomorrow, book club on Wednesday which means this girl needs to get to reading, and our final wedding planning meeting with Mary Alice on Thursday--prayers will be needed to keep my sanity for sure!
However, on a few happy notes--the new season of the The Bachelorette starts tonight and I cannot wait AND I just bought the new Lady Gaga album online for 99 cents {yes, you read that correctly}. Check out Amazon today for this AMAZING deal on the MP3 version!

  6. I just learned this weekend that the "masked man" on the new Bachelorette is a guy we know! How strange! I can't wait to figure out what that's all about.
