412 days until the wedding. I really can't wait, I wish it would come faster! But my dad always says "don't wish your life away" so I think I can wait patiently(mostly). Here are some flower ideas I'm toying with. I really love the idea of orange flowers with our color scheme. Arden isn't so fond of it, but I think I can change his mind. I'm planning on having the bridesmaids wear blue dresses, and I think blue flowers with blue dresses would look funny and brown flowers are ugly and EXPENSIVE. Pink could also look nice with blue and brown, but I think I like the idea of orange more. Guess we'll have to see. I also love gerber daisies, I think they are fun, and they look so nice in orange(and don't come in blue).

Our reception venue
Upton Hall at the Mendel Center

Yeah, I'm not too fond of the ceiling, but I'll tell our photographer not to take any picures of it! The ceiling is hardly the most important part of the day and I really do love this venue. They have good food and have been very professional in all the times I've been to there.

So, I've started my "diet" over after two weeks of utter crappiness. I was doing really well on the exercising part, just horrible on the eating healthy part. I'm really going to try(again) this time. I'm going to try to not let Arden influence me to eat poorly or overindulge. He enables me way too much and I just let him. I got on the scale Monday and saw that I had gained about 5 pounds in 2 weeks, and that really isn't the way I want the scale to be moving!

In other news, Arden and I booked our reception venue on Sunday!!! It's going to be at Upton Hall in the Mendel Center at LMC. It's kind of expensive, but it's what Arden wants(I like it too) so we decided to just go for it, especially since they were still open for our day. So we will definatly have a reception, if nothing else :P
I think the best part is that since we're not going over 150 guests, we'll only need 15 tables. Well, we already have most of the supplies for 15 centerpieces, so we don't need to get any more(besides what we need to finish the ones we have now). So that's a bit of money we don't need to spend, which is good because we don't have any money! haha

The Beginning

I've had a lot of blogs in the past and kept some of them up and failed at others. This will not only be a blog of life, but mostly of my weight loss journey and a lot of wedding plans. I'm not too big on making a bio, so I need somewhere to put my ideas. They are all just getting lost in my head without any place to go!
I have 422 days until mine and Arden's wedding. Yes, that is a long time. But we have so much to do! And I would love to drop 20-30 pounds by that time. Completely do-able. I just need to get my binging under control! But I don't want to just lose weight for the wedding, I want to do it so I'm healthier! I've "worked" in hospitals, and I don't want to be one of those old people who needs to live hooked up to a moniter and can't do anything on their own. I want to be like my grandmother, who is about to turn 71 and is still doing great and is as active(mostly) as she was 20 years ago.
But I digress. I tend to do that a lot.
Off we go!
