135 Days - Destination Wedding Journal - Black Destination Bride

Day 135

Thursday, January 12, 2017


Temperature: High 63° / Low 31°
I’m still ignoring the warm weather...it’s a trick!


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

I’ll say that today was better than yesterday based on the fact that on top of the rest of my daily activities, I killed it in the gym AND checked another destination wedding task off of our list!
That’s more than enough for this Thursday, thank me very much!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Not much has changed since yesterday...I’m still coasting with pain at a 5.5 and my overall recovery at that 99%, but I won’t complain about it. This day was too good to be all worried about Lupus. Not today.

Workout Time & Duration?

We’re baaack! My workout partner and I did the damn thang in the gym today!

Leg Day was no joke...who put this workout together?...oh wait, it was me... I crack myself up!
It took us about 1.5 hours, but we kicked Leg Day’s ass! I’m sure it will get us back in the morning when the soreness settles in...hopefully it isn’t too vengeful! Fingers crossed!!!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

I picked up our wedding bands this morning, but of course, it wasn’t without incident…SMDHAMDS

SMDHAMDS (Shaking My Damn Head At My Damn Self)
— Omi made it up 😜

I was very excited about picking up our rings...So excited that I locked my phone AND keys in the damn house! Soooo...I had to jump through a few hoops to get back inside. I was feeling a little dumb, but I was a dummy with wedding bands so who gives a shit, really?

Not me!

The rings are perfect and we’re getting married in 135 days…


Wedding Bands?



AND I was sure to take heed to some great advice that I received from my girlfriends last night. I was sure to put the rings away in a safe place and will avoid fingerprints like the plague. We will be getting all rings cleaned before we head off to Mexico, but still…I don’t want our bands looking all crazy before we even get married!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Nothing to report here, but I did notice that the Munaluchi's - The Bridal Scene is coming soon this year. I really had a great time at their first event last year and wish I could go again...I probably wouldn’t get much value in it other than the experience, but that would be enough for me! Anyway, to answer the question: NO...no old tasks came back up, only memories.

Loving Black Love Moment?

Last night Che got some HIM Time in and was able to really enjoy being by himself in the house while I was out having drinks. Well, tonight was different...We walked home together - me from the gym and Che from the office - and we’ve been together ever since. I think it was a nice change of pace and at one point we chilled together and listened to Anita Baker songs.
We can be so cute when we want to be.
Che will still get his HIM Time every now and then, but we need these times too...It is all Love.

What am I happy for?

Friday being tomorrow!
I  have had a great week, but damn it has been long...longer than usual...just long. But tomorrow is Friday, so whoop whoop!!!

What could I have done better?

Well, given the fact that I locked myself out of my own damn house, I could be better about taking my time and paying attention to what I’m doing.
Oh, but wait!
I said I didn’t care about that...so...in that case, I don’t need to do anything better.
I kicked today AND Leg Day’s asses, so Im good!


What am I doing tomorrow?

Rolling through on my #GymLife train with Arms & Shoulders Day, and I want to do something different for a Friday...I have no idea what it is, but I’ll know it when I see it.

Dun, dun, duuunnnnnnnn...
