What a weekend!

Good morning!

I needed to come back to work just to get a break from the full weekend I had!  My work place does "summer hours" from July 4th to Labor day so we work Mon-Thurs, 10 hour days.  It is tough but so worth it to have Fridays off - especially when planning a wedding!

 Friday, I had my hair and makeup trail along with my final dress fitting!  I usually never wear make up so it was a change to have all this make up on my face but the girl did a great job and it looked pretty natural.  I still fit in my dress (YAY!) and everything is good to go for the big day!

Saturday, I woke up at 5:30am to meet up with the running group for one of my last hard long runs before the 15k.  My running buddy and I did a super hard workout in the humid morning which took alot of out me, but I still have a jam packed day ahead.

10 miles w/ 6 miles at HMP (~7:35) or faster - turns out we ran faster (~7:26 pace)

Then I went shopping for a few last minute supplies before working on my wedding projects.  I am keeping all my projects a secret until after the big day but I can say that everything is coming out better than I expected! I am so excited.  Anyway - I don't even want to know what the check out guy at the grocery store thought I was doing because I had such a jumble of random items!

Any guesses on what my wedding projects are???  I have hinted to them before...
I am still feeling quite overwhelmed with the amount of stuff that I have to get done in just 2 and 1/2 short weeks but I know it will all get done!

Sunday, I barely got to sleep in as I had another bridal shower - for my cousin who is getting married in October!!  It was a fabulous event with great food and great people.  I especially loved the centerpieces and I am even thinking about using the idea at my wedding!

So simple and beautiful!

Overall it was a whirlwind weekend of running and wedding stuff.  Only 14 more days until the race and 19 until the big day!  How was your weekend?  I can't wait for next weekend!

You will just have remember to come back and let us in on all the secrets after the fact! I feel like I'm still doing that...almost a month later.
