Day 65

Thursday, March 23, 2017

Temperature: High 52° / Low 20°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Today we had a GREAT Skype meeting with our wedding DJs, so my wedding reception confidence is sky high. Can’t ask for more on a Thursday!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

Still feeling great! Pain is minimal and that 2 is still going strong!

Workout Time & Duration?

I did cardio again for 30 minutes, but I need to get back into my weight training - that’s where the real results are!


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

We had our Skype meeting with the DJs for our wedding, PlugIn Audiovisual, and it went great! All communication was perfect and they knew EXACTLY what we wanted so it feels great to be comfortable with the DJs since they are such a huge part of our wedding.

Sucky DJ = Sucky Wedding

The food can be bad and people can be assholes, but as long as the music is good - the party will keep going. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking with it!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

The wedding music was Che’s responsibility for the wedding so seeing him asking all his questions and making sure everything made sense with the DJs was kinda romantic - hell - it was a HUGE turn on! He’s getting excited-er and I’m loving it!

What am I happy for?

I’m happy that I FUCKING LOVE my makeup artist and am bringing her with me for my destination wedding! Ivory is oh so amazing and the bonus of knowing her a ZILLION times better!

No Stranger Danger for Makeup! 

We had a great call this morning and started off talking about timelines and destination wedding logistics and then we ended up talking about everything else under the sun.
My DestiMUA is better than yours (yes, I’m talking shit to myself...sort of)


What could I have done better?

I could have practiced a little restraint and got off of the phone with Ivory sooner than I did. I’m gonna pay for that missing time tomorrow..

...but it’s worth every penny!


What am I doing tomorrow?

I got excited when my calendar reminder popped up for my dress fitting with Debbie tomorrow...problem is - I rescheduled it on Day 66 and forgot to move it on my calendar…


Tomorrow is Friday, so it will still be great, just not “Dress Fitting Day” great
