PHEW. Where the heck did the past week go? I have been jumbling days and barely sleeping and go-go-going that I’m almost relieved it’s all coming to a close. No wait, I don’t really mean that. Well, yes I do. Wes and I are both itching to get back home to see Tyler and the doggies! Here’s just a snippet of what we’ve been up to lately:
All this kid has wanted to do this whole trip is go outside and explore. Nonstop.
Tried to teach him how to smell the flowers, but…..he eats them.
I’m gonna have to buy one of these gliders for home because it keeps Wes entertained for hours. Mostly the gliding ottoman. For what reason, I do not know.
The beginning of last week was crazy hot and I hadn’t packed any warm weather clothing for us, so naked it was!
My workouts have been all random things I’ve thrown together. My external hard drive wasn’t working (operator error, I’m sure) so I couldn’t do any workout DVDs. I opted for running, AMRAP workouts, tabatas, and circuits. They’ve been a wonderful change-up for me and I’m hoping to keep it up when I’m back in Calgary.
One of my besties (AMY!!!!!) got married on Saturday so it was a whirlwind of a weekend. The rehearsal dinner was YUMMY and it was fun to meet her hubby-to-be’s side of the family. PS: I loved the dress I wore, but it look terrible in the above photo. Grrr..
Not the most glamorous food photo, but it was chicken cacciatore and acorn squash. And the CAKEEEEE. OHMYGOD THE CAKE. It was so tasty I think I scarfed it in two bites. Chocolate on chocolate on chocolate.
Some of us bridesmaids stayed in one of the townhouses on the grounds of where the wedding was and we all crashed within 10 minutes of getting there. The dinner went so late and we had to be up at the crack of dawn (actually, we were up when it was still dark out!) to get ready for the big day!!!!!
Ha…my mimosa is the only mimosa sans any juice 😉
Fake eyelashes for the win!
The ceremony was great, we took some amazing Gatsby-eeque photos (her theme), and the reception was a PARTAY. I haven’t danced that much in ages and have a god awful blister to prove it. I feel like there’s so much I want to tell about the whole wedding weekend…it was such a blast! Congrats to Amy and Lo and have so much fun on your honeymoon. PS: bring me back some wine?? 😉
This kid has been somewhat of a handful lately.. between not seeing me much over the weekend + teething like a sonofabitch + whack sleep pattern + missing daddy & doggies + learning to say the word ‘no’ to everything = disaster. I’m hoping our flight home won’t be too bad and everything settles back to normal once we get back into our routine.
Pizza and beer are my favorite things. And naps. But you can’t take pictures of naps.
The cooler weather came back, but Wes was still determined as ever to pack in as much outside time as possible. I also got in one last run and really enjoyed it.
HOLD THE PHONE.
I enjoyed my run. I’d love to continue incorporating some runs into my routine once home, but anything colder than the 55 degrees it was today and it’s just not my jam. We’ll see.
And on a final note: I’ve noticed that ever since I updated my iPhone last, it shuts off just about every time I bring my phone outside for more than a few minutes. I had to burrow it in my jacket so that I could still listen to music while I ran today…anyone have this problem?
Ok, so maybe going forward there won’t have to just be PHOTO DUMP posts…gotta work on that.
A Gatsby themed wedding sounds super cool. You look gorgeous.
Holy sparkles! Those bridesmaids dresses are incredible. Gatsby theme is such a great idea, The ’20s is one of my favorite era. (Side note, I can’t believe we’re almost in a new set of ’20s, Are we still going to call them the ’20s?)
Wes is so cute raking leaves in his buffalo plaid vest! Hope the flight home goes well!
LOVE those bridesmaid dresses- and you look beautiful! I wanted something like that for my wedding, but it just didn’t workout 😦
