Hi beauties! I hope that this post finds everyone doing well. I have my hair and makeup trial tonight for the wedding so I will be sure to post some pics tomorrow. I actually have a very exciting weekend coming up- my bridal shower is on Saturday (which, by the way, also marks one month to the wedding)! My awesome matron of honor, Christina has been hard at work to put together something great. Annnd, tomorrow my office is throwing me a shower! I am one lucky girl.
The only damper on the upcoming festivities is the dang winter storm that is hitting the Northeast. Bri was supposed to come up for the weekend to attend the work shower (it’s customary, I guess) and to see me. The weather is preventing that. My mom was flying in from California, and she had to cancel her flight due to weather issues. Other friends/family members from out of town are likely to not come to the shower because of all the snow. I have been pretty bummed about that for the past two days. What do you guys do to get yourself out of a bad mood?
I am a very happy person and to me having a bad mood almost seems indulgent- like, get a grip Katie, there are people out there that struggle with real problems. On the other hand, I tried everything I could to lift my mood yesterday- watching funny youtube videos, thinking about upcoming events- to no avail. Perhaps sometimes out moods are beyond our control? I did start to feel better after my body sculpting class. It always kicks my booty!
In any event, I made a kick ass dinner yesterday- whole wheat pasta with shrimp and basil in a “creamy” nutmeg sauce. One of these days I will actually take a picture of my food and post the recipe for you guys- it’s really delicious! In fact, I’m currently eating some of the leftovers now for an early dinner before my appointments. I’m feeling very frugal in packing my dinner and eating it before I leave work.

@ Eat Read Run passed along the “creative writer” blogger award to me.
Now I am supposed to list six lies and one truth about myself. Y’all have to guess which one is true!
- I was almost bitten by a cow in Ireland when I tried to pet it.
- I’ve practiced speaking Gaelic with a drunken old Irish man in Dublin.
- I can still do a back handspring.
- I was born without wisdom teeth.
- The most adventurous/out there food I’ve ever tried is bear meat.
- I was the lead vocal in my high school musicals.
- I love white zinfandel.
Now I am supposed to tag some peeps, but I have to head off to my appointments. If you are reading this, consider yourself tagged and play along!
I hope everyone has a great rest of the week, and I’ll be back tomorrow with some trial run pictures! Happy Thursday 🙂
