Five on Friday

It's Friday!
But honestly I'm kinda bummed that it's Friday.
Today is the last day of my Spring Break, and come Monday, it'll be back to my little 2nd grade babies. But we'll still celebrate with Christina @ Carolina Charm & the Five on Friday ladies nonetheless.
Like I mentioned, this past weekend was Spring Break!
Do you hear angels singing? I sure did!
It didn't go exactly like I planned, but it was just enjoyable not to wake up at 4:30am, not spend 2 hours driving in traffic to and from work, and let's be honest - a break from 2nd grade tattling was most enjoyable! I loved spending the week catching up on laundry (never thought I would say that!), spending time with family & friends, and even enjoying the warmth of spring with my fur babies.
Talk about looking forward to summer vacation!

On my break, I was lucky enough to visit one of my bridesmaids in Alabama.
I just spent a day with Brittany and her peanut, Luke, but it was so sweet spending time with them. I can't wait to see them again!
Luke may or may not have said "yes" to being our ring bearer. 
You'll have to find out next week. ;)
 If you've been reading my blog for the last two months, you already know about my weight loss adventure with Weight Watchers. But in case you're a new reader, a couple months ago (February 10th to be exact) I started the program. With the wedding coming up, and me not feeling my best in general, I decided it would be for the best to try and start a healthier lifestyle. With WW, you're able to still eat normally, just more so with portion control and making better choices. I have loved the program, and have seen results almost every week.
Honestly, I haven't had all the time in the world to exercise, but I try my best to squeeze it in as best I can. So mostly my progress has been with some exercise, but mostly portion control and making better choices when I eat.

With that being said, I'm proud to say that this week, I finally reached my FIRST weight goal! YAAAAAAAY!
A total (so far) of -10 pounds!
To say that I'm excited is an understatement!
I hope to share more about how I'm eating and the weight loss journey on the blog in the next upcoming weeks. As for now, I have a new goal I set for myself, but I couldn't help celebrating just a little...

 I did not feel any regret - don't worry. :)


We sent out our invitations this week and it has been sooo exciting to check the mail ever since! I love looking to see who says they're coming on June 7th. The mail lady is my new favorite person. :)

 You can check the rest of our invitations here.
There's been a lot of wedding details crossed off the list recently.
We've sent the invitations.
Bought bridesmaid necklaces & getting reading attire.
Mom has a wedding dress.
Found the PERFECT wedding day heels.
 Had a successful meeting with the wedding planner last night discussing time line and details.
And tomorrow I have my first dress fitting, which is crazy!

 There is still so much to do, but it's relieving to see it coming along!
Can't wait to share more with y'all!
Happy almost weekend!
