Day 42

Saturday, April 15, 2017

Temperature: High 81° / Low 51°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

How could I complain when my days consists of an afternoon Date Night Delight including the Fast and the Furious 8?!? I can’t!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I was a little tired, but that it to be expected after a late night of drinking. Overall, I’ll put myself at a 2 for pain and the exhaustion doesn’t matter because of last night.

Workout Time & Duration?

I didn’t work out shit today...Not a damn thing!
So much for my daily workouts...I fell off the wagon.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

We did a little something all day!

This morning:

I sent follow up emails to our resort contacts on the available locations for our welcome event and confirmation on our cabana reservations. I sent the original emails days ago and had to follow up. They both responded almost immediately.

This afternoon:

Che and I discussed the pros and cons of reserving a space and having servers for our welcome cocktail hour and in the end, we agree. Really, Che was the one who got me on board with the idea. Secrets Maroma Barracuda Terrace it is!

This evening:

Che drafted our guest reminder email that we’re gonna send next week - probably on Day 40, knowing us since we like the milestones!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

Afternoon Date Night Delight!

Che took me to see the new Fast & Furious 8: The Fate of the Furious movie and I loved every second of it! He bought the tickets earlier this week and I love it when he does that. We had lunch afterward and shared our usual drink and good conversation. Quality Time really is my love language - I just love being in his presence!

What am I happy for?
I’m happy that I have a new bag coming from my fiancé really soon. Today, he confessed that he hates my Gucci crossbody bag and is so fed up with it that he will replace it with something better. I’m not mad at it at all! Now...what am I getting??? Hmmm...We ARE going to Atlanta next weekend AND it’ll be my birthday weekend to… Hmmm…..

What could I have done better?
Che took me to see the new Fast & Furious 8: The Fate of the Furious movie and I was a little hungover and moving slowly to get out of the house. He didn’t give me a hard time, he just waited and I know he hates when I’m late...The fact that I’m the one who loves the F+F movies may have had something to do with it, but my man exercised a good amount of patience with me...He wasn’t silent - but he did well. And I almost missed the damn beginning! 


What am I doing tomorrow?

Being an Easter Chef!
