Does anyone even read this thing anymore? Where do I even begin? Well, let’s start with the most recent life development and work our way backwards, shall we? I’m going to use point form because I need to go to bed and you don’t want to hang out here all day, right? Right.
First::: Tonight I joined Crossfit. I know, I’m late to the party on this one and I’ve talked about my dislike for the price before, and I have known for awhile that I would love it if I actually bit the bullet and joined, but let’s be honest… it’s intimidating and I’m a wimp. You see, my wedding is 60 days away and it is officially crunch time. Like, for real this time. I did a short fitness assessment class tonight with the head coach (?) and I am having trouble walking. #prayforme
Second::: Speaking of the wedding coming up, we have been having family & friends visiting for the past 3 weeks (more on that later) and we have been eating out and drinking much more than normal. I was sad to see them go, but my body needs to detox-and-a-half and it couldn’t have come sooner. The cleaner eating resolve officially started yesterday, here was our dinner of dijon glazed salmon and garlic asparagus – YUM! I don’t love salmon, it’s kind of “fishy”… I know, it’s a fish, but you know what I’m saying. Anyways this glaze made with honey, dijon mustard, lemon juice, and olive oil was the perfect way to make me forget what I was eating.
Third::: I got eyelash extensions on Monday night. I know, first Crossfit and now eyelash extensions? Since when did I start caring so much for my appearance? One word: Wedding. Unfortunately I didn’t have much to work with because I have this habit of picking off my mascara each evening while I watch tv and apparently I’m the only one in the universe who does this?! I got shamed at the eyelash place. Anyways, sometimes my real lashes come out with it, and don’t judge me right now. Here is my meager extensions, and I’m hoping mine grow more over the next few weeks and next time there is more happening up there.
Fourth:::: Well, now for the real reason I’ve been absent from updating you all on life in a lump instead of ongoing like I should be. First, we had James’ groomsman Ben and his wife Emily come to stay with us for a couple days. Then my dad & stepmom came a couple of days later and stayed for 5 days, and then my sister came mere hours after my dad & stepmom left (!!) and then she stayed with us for a few nights. We’ve been entertaining up a storm, you guys.
My visit with my dad & stepmom wasn’t nearly long enough, I hadn’t seen them in person for 11 months so I gave them more hugs than was socially acceptable. I cried really, really hard when they left. For hours. It wasn’t cute. Here’s a picture of my dad and I at Capilano on the Cliff Walk.
We made so many amazing memories and I’m so grateful that they were able come and visit us and get some quality time in.
When my sister came to town we had a sleepover at the Fairmont because she was doing a course there and we went to the restaurant at my work for dinner because, 50% off… duh. And you guys, the food was to die for. To DIE! This was only half of the food we ordered but I basically dove in to the rest and forgot to take pictures. Please keep your judgements to yourself.
On Saturday night we went to Granville Island to the improv show again (we had just taken my dad & stepmom the weekend before) and it was beyond exciting because they chose me to be a judge (!!!). Exciting, right? Well that’s not even all. I also tweeted a suggestion for an improv skit, and they chose my suggestion and I got free tickets for next time. BOOM! And also my hair was really working for me if you hadn’t noticed. It was my night, it really was.
Last::: Well, that’s as far back as I feel like recalling tonight. I had that challenging crossfit thing earlier, and blogging, and I had this annoying thing called work earlier for the WHOLE DAY, rude. And, I just really need to get to bed. I have too many responsibilities and I basically have no idea how I’m going to juggle a kid into this life of mine one day. No clue.
WHAT IS NEW IN YOUR LIFE?! I’ve been MIA and I’m behind the times, tell me everything!
Crossfit – have you done it? Did you survive the initial assessment?
Send me your salmon suggestions. I’ve got a lot of salmon in my future from now til May 30th so help me not get bored! mmk, thanks
