Day 40

Monday, April 17, 2017

Temperature: High 70° / Low 55°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

This day whizzed by - but that’s what everyone said will happen when we’re THIS close to the wedding! 40 days!!!!!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Minimal pain and a good energy level has me at a 1.5 today.

Workout Time & Duration?

I wanted to take a run outside this morning, but it was too chilly for me. I ended up doing an evening full body workout with my bachelorette jumpsuit and wedding gown on my mind


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Che said it - and he’s right...nowadays it is easy for us to spend HOURS talking wedding. I think we were in ChOmi Wedding Land for almost 3 hours tonight, but we got a lot done. What did we do…

💖 Reviewed the menu packages again since on Day 44 when we told weren’t getting the champagne we wanted. We’re saving money too! At least, I think so...but it really depends on the price of a case of Veuve champagne.

💖 Sent confirmation of our new timeline to the transportation company for Friday & Saturday

💖 Sent an email to our guests letting them know that the website is updated and...

  • Asking them to make their meal choices on website/app,
  • Notifying them of ALL WHITE attire for our Friday Night dinner in the city
  • Reminding them to send their flight information to our travel agent, Sarah.
  • Telling them to get fucking excited! Minus the “fucking”...although I think we should have added it.

💖 Oh, and earlier today I did go over the Welcome Event space contract a little bit with Che around lunch time and over the course of the day we decided that we want to switch up the standard decor and alter the number of people since we will be paying for service on a per person case and everyone will not be arriving on or before Thursday.


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

I woke up to a kitchen full of dishes from our Easter dinner and wanted to jump out of the fucking window...instead I put on music and got to it.
As far as I’m concerned, that’s Love, because THAT was a 4 person job.

What am I happy for?

My birthday is in ONE week and this is the first year that it isn’t the biggest event of my year! Between the bachelorette party and the wedding - my poor birthday has been overshadowed...but I’m happy about it! Life is fucking great!

What could I have done better?

I had leftovers for lunch and I can’t be playing around! I said it yesterday, but all this food has to burn off off my body for real...I have an unforgiving jumpsuit to fit into this weekend and on Wednesday, I get to slip into my wedding dress. My bad eating is over!


What am I doing tomorrow?

Making tomorrow better than today! And doing more work...I have a lot of shit to do so I can be stress-free this weekend!
