Day 71

Friday, March 17, 2017

Temperature: High 44° / Low 22°


What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Fridays are always great, but when your new podcast episode drops AND your fiancé is feeling like being romantic and surprises you...they’re even better!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

I still feel great! Minimal joint pain is keeping me at about a 2!

Workout Time & Duration?

My great afternoon workout is exactly what I needed. I ended up going at the same time as the high schoolers (which I hate), but I didn’t let them fuck up my shit with their non-working out and in my way asses. I still had a great full body workout to get myself back on track anyway. And I was there for almost 2 hours, but that’s because I did 45 minutes of cardio on the elliptical and treadmill -- I mixed it up a lil and I think I’ll do that more often


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Our wedding planner, Joyce, has confirmed that our lighting and decor is now handled for the wedding reception! Now, we have favors and welcome bags to think about. Che and I went back and forth about some ideas, and I think we’re on the same page. This is gonna be fun!


Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?


Loving Black Love Moment?

My amazing fiancé came home early with a defeated look on his face. He walked through the snow to go to a liquor store and was 1 minute too late and it was closed. He was trying to surprise me with a bottle of champagne...but was unsuccessful. Actually, he wasn’t completely unsuccessful because I told him about a wine spot that sells bottles nearby so he was insistent on going back out into the snow and finishing his mission. The effort that man puts into putting a smile on my face is in a class of its own. I’m a lucky girl!

What am I happy for?

Other than the magical man that I get to marry, I’m happy for the fact mthat we’re done planning the big stuff for our wedding and we get to just think about the little fun stuff. We’re making great time too!

What could I have done better?

I’m happy with my day so I have nothing here!


What am I doing tomorrow?

We have our first pre-marital couples counseling appointment tomorrow!
