Day 32

Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Temperature: High 67° / Low 51°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today was getting back to normal day...last week was amazing and now I get to move forward with that boost!
I'm 32 and getting married in 32 days!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Still feeling good...I’ll put pain at about a 2.

Workout Time & Duration?

I had an evening workout that was about and hour long. I got a late start, but once I was there I was good money. My cardio was spin bike and weights focused on legs and booty. Not bad for a first day back.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

My poor fiancé returned to his mission to get this bank wire completed to finalize our wedding reception food and drinks payment. Unfortunately, we still haven’t received the information we need to do an international wire, so he made another unsuccessful bank trip. I saw the emails flying back and forth between him and our planner, Joyce, and I had to jump in to try to help. I called Sprint to add free calls to Mexico (which should count towards another wedding task) and called to speak directly to the venue for clarity and the information we requested, which at the time was this:

The account and routing numbers for the beneficiary bank, intermediary bank and the beneficiary’s city and zip code

Sounds simple...but nope - it turns out that routing numbers apply to only US banks so the beneficiary bank wouldn’t have those...and the venue has never been asked for the account numbers, so all that they had was the SWIFT code.

I got a good amount of intel on what these bank codes mean - CLABE numbers, SWIFT Codes, ABA and Routing numbers...I could be a damn banker now! But anyway...I still didn’t get what I needed from the venue, but the representative was really helpful (as helpful as she could be) so Che and I decided to just do a domestic wire to the US “Intermediary Bank” and reference the Beneficiary  since nothing else seemed to work and we have to get this completed before the 27th to avoid late penalties.


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

Che called and asked if I was meeting him at the gym tonight...hell yeah! I love working out with my man! He ended up working later than expected, but we got to leave the gym and walk home together and I realized that I missed it. All quality time counts with me!

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that we have a plan for this damn bank transfer and it'll be done tomorrow! I'm officially over it all...

What could I have done better?

I could’ve used a nap today.


What am I doing tomorrow?

Wedding dress day is back already!
