Eeeeee! Things are moving along nicely with planning our big day. I'm an organized planner by nature, so while some people gasp when we tell them that we are planning to get married in the Fall, others say having just under a year is no big and all the time you need to plan a wedding. So ... I figured, it's time to get organized. I picked up this wedding planner/organizer at Barnes and Noble and it's already getting some good use. The folders are filled with flower, color, and cake ideas ... and the timeline is right on schedule. A lot of websites like TheKnot.com have a general timeline on them that they say you should follow to know when to book a DJ, shop around for a florist, sign with a venue ... you know that kind of thing ... and this planner has a super detailed one inside. I'm very happy and relieved to say ... we are RIGHT ON SCHEDULE according to the timeline. Phew! :) I can say with 100% certainty that PINTEREST has EVERYTHING to do with being on schedule. I'm full of ideas that are just ready to be executed thanks for my favorite time waster, Pinterest. If you're not already, you can follow me - my name is Amanda on 98.5 KRZ! :) I'll follow you back, too!
My friend Tanya and I have been hitting the gym and running the Ease into 5K program. Yup, i'm SWEATING for the WEDDING. I am not someone who enjoys working out and despise running, but I have to say, the feeling of being DONE with the workout is the BEST feeling ever. Unlike some people, I do not enjoy the act of exercise WHILE IT'S HAPPENING - not in the least ... but I feel AWESOME when it's over ... and because of that feeling, i'm committed to doing it. We are on week 4 of the program (it's an APP you can download for like $5 - and it's worth it!) The goal is to be able to run a 5K in a few weeks ... and hopefully we'll get to run a real one in the Spring when the weather is nicer.
Tanya actually gave John (my fiance! - that's so fun to say!) and I this ornament the other day. I love it! :)
So, over the weekend ... John and I visited a place we really really liked (more than any other) to have our wedding. We went over all of the details to write up a contract ... which makes it all feel like it's really happening now. I don't want to jinx anything, so for now I won't say WHERE ... but it's in the Poconos and of all of the venues were visited, this one stood out most for SO MANY reasons. Hopefully i'll be able to tell you we are signed and booked before the new year. :)
Any guesses where?
