Bathroom Remodel…Nearly Complete!

After two very long years, several weeks spent covered in drywall dust, and many arguments discussions on how to finish the space, the master bathroom remodel is nearly completely!  As I type, the shower glass enclosure is being installed, and that will be the final piece!

I am so excited to finally unveil it on the blog…I feel like this project has been going and going, with no end in sight, and now we’re there!  Of course, we’re already planning on what to work on next, but I feel like we’ve learned a ton and can be much more realistic on timelines going forward.

Stay tuned, I’ll be sure to post pictures over the next few days!

Much love,

An exciting October!

After settling myself in at work this morning, I sent a chat message to a good friend who lives in Michigan.  It’s weird…I absolutely adore this girl, but we’ve never met.  We started out reading each other’s blogs, then FB friends, and then progressed to chatting online.  She went through a divorce a few years back and I tried to be there for her because I knew it was such a rough time for her.  Then, when she started dating again, I shared her excitement in the dating stages.  The “what should I wear” and “where will we go” were fun for us to sit around and giggle over, and I was so happy when she met D, who is how her fiance.

So, I sat down at my desk, and sent C. a message, asking how she was.  We chatted a bit, and then she asked me if I would be a bridesmaid in her upcoming wedding!!!  I am so excited to be a part of her big day, and can’t wait to actually meet her in person!  I love that the internet has allowed me to create and maintain relationships that I would have never had a chance to have prior…it’s absolutely amazing!

Her primary color is blue…Tardis blue (for those of you familiar with Doctor Who).  The dress she has picked is one of the convertible type dresses, which I think is awesome!  Here is a photo of the dress color that she’s going with.

I love the color!  The wedding is in October, so it’s a good color for pretty much any time of the year, and I really like that it doesn’t scream “bridesmaid.”  I can actually wear this again!  In addition, here are some of the options on how you can customize the dress!

I really like the one on the top right (the coral color) and the middle bottom (the grey blue color).  I think it’ll just depend on how others are styling theirs, and how much weight I manage to lose between now and then.  This is great motivation to eat even healthier and to get into the best shape possible for the wedding! 

So, that’s my good news for the day!  I’m super excited to be a part of this lady’s day, it’s going to be amazing!


Still here, still in the game.

We have entered into Day 2 of Vegetarianism.  I go several days often without eating meat to begin with, so it doesn’t really feel like I’ve actually accomplished anything, as it’s something that I already do on a normal basis.  Maybe by the time I go a month without meat, I’ll feel more proud of my efforts.  I thought it might be a struggle to find food to eat, but so far, I don’t seem to have any problem.  Thankfully, I love vegetables, and our company cafeteria has an AWESOME salad bar, so I’m sorted for most lunches (honestly, I need to stop being a lazy ass and just make something to bring for lunch.  Baby steps).  Tonight we’re having coworkers over for dinner, and I’m making fajitas.  We still have some frozen chicken in the freezer, so I’m going to use that up for those wanting meat, and everyone else will be having rice and veggie fajitas.  YUMMY!!!  I’m thinking quinoa instead of rice…not sure yet though.

If any of you have any awesome recipes you’d like to share, send them my way!  I love to cook and am always looking for something new!
