 Day 23

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Temperature: High 66° / Low 49°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today was better than yesterday because I realized that I needed to switch my inner language and mindset...instead of saying “I have to do this, this and this…”, I GET to do this, this and that! What a difference a word makes! I ordered my hanger, designed our welcome boxes and my last laser hair removal appointment was today too!

How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Still feeling shitty today, but at least my attitude is better...I’ll say today’s pain and Lupie status was at a 2. A cold is a brewin’...

Workout Time & Duration?

I had every intention of working out before my laser appointment, but it didn’t happen. And I can’t workout 24 hours after my treatment - so no workout for Omi today…plus - who am I kidding? I feel like hot garbage.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

💖Yes, I feel shitty - this cannot be denied. What also can’t be denied is the fact that I have work to do… so I pulled the trigger on my hanger on Etsy and because I’m so last minute I really paid $20 to expedite shipping for a hanger that cost $10.50.

Oh well...I said I was learning my lessons the hard way - right?!? This is definitely the hard way. BUT - I have a hanger to check off my list!

💖 On top that - I designed our welcome boxes too! I love them! Che gave me the green light on them tonight, so I'll order them tomorrow. Boxes will be soo much better than bags! And they're 100% custom too!

I did that!

Here's my prototype, but we'll need more stuff since our boxes are gonna be bigger!


💖 And I think the last wedding related task I've done today was reaching out to find someone to get the Welcome  Itineraries printed too! 

Go me!!!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

Hell no! The way I'm feeling...I'm lucky I got a regular task done today.

Loving Black Love Moment?

So I thought I burned dinner yesterday, and I felt like shit about it...it was supposed to be a roast... but before I threw it out - Che told me not to throw it away - well, the vegetables were a done deal - but now that I’ve looked at the roast today - it was actually usable. So guess what we had for dinner tonight...

Anytime the Future Hubby makes effort towards dinner I will feel the LOVE!

Gold Star for the Future Husband!


What am I happy for?

I’m happy that I’m getting sick now and not later. I’m also happy to see how everything is coming together for our wedding. I have high hopes for it and know that even though I don’t have everything YET...it’ll all workout.

This is what we like to call “must be nice" problems.

What could I have done better?

Nothing. I’m proud of myself today! Feeling sick AND checking things off my Desti checklist. Gold star for Omi too!


What am I doing tomorrow?

Getting better tomorrow???
