I got my wedding dress!! And some more engagement pics

Matt and I got some of the rest of our engagement pics back and I love them, here are a few for your viewing pleasure :)

thats all Im posting of it...I love it and it fits me perfectly! I got it from this cute little bridal shop in Lebannon, Or. The woman was wonderful! I went up there w/ my best friend before she left for the Dominican and found this dress that I really liked, but it was like 6 sizes too big, I couldnt tell what it looked like and it was so frumpy on me. The woman offered to order it in MY size and she did! I drove up there w/ my mommy and tried it on and it just felt perfect dress, everything that I have ever wanted!

I swear I am still here!

Still been doing my shred, but I have noticed that I am just NOT giving it my all...SO, I am making a re-commitment to myself-I need to start doing daily posts again WITH pictures-this last week I am going to give it my all and then some. It has been a very very busy week week and a half for me, but things are settling down so thats good...On top of the shred I have been using my NEW bike, its so cute, orange and black (my favorite colors!)...Matt has yet to join me on a bike ride, but Im hoping to get a nice long one in this weekend!

hope you all are doing well

Sweet Peyton

hope my sister doesnt mind me posting her pics from her blog (

my sweet niece Peyton is now 3...of course, she is her mom's favorite model, shes so beautiful! My sister is having a new baby boy in like a month, SO excited for her! Cant wait to meet the new little guy. I cant wait to have kids of my own, but until then, I have to live through my sisters :)

so finally getting around to posting 10-day results, and a big oops!

I have only lost 3 pounds, but I feel a lot better and I have actually lost a few inches in the process too!

Waist -3"
Thigh -1"
so a total of 5 inches lost, yippee~!

I have to admit this weekend was pretty crazy and I did not get a workout in on Saturday (I wasnt even home all day) and yesterday I did not feel good at all, I couldnt keep anything down, so I didnt workout yesterday either, but you know what? Im not going to beat myself up over it and I am going to just add 2 days to the end of the workout...but today Im ready to workout and I should have my bike today or tomorrow so hopefully Ill be riding my bike to/from work too :)

Since I dont have any pics to post from this weekend, here is a few from last July when my family came to town from Nebraska-my dad...ahhh, I love my daddy (as you all know) but man he is such a dork! Since we live in Eugene aka Hippy Town USA, dad decided that while the Nebraska family was in town, we should all make our own tye dyed t shirts...yup, then-all go down to the Saturday Market wearing our t shirts-LUCKILY, I was at an adoption event that day so couldnt make it to the SM, oh bummer! haha

Me and my awesome cousin Austin

the Nebraska kids with my mommy
Me and my mom and daddy (love this picture of my mom cause it captures her silly self, one of my favorite things about her!)

Day NINE!! And its a good thing

I usually work out in the evening, but yesterday for some reason I got up early and so decided to do my workout in the morning-GOOD THING cause by the time I got home from work my head was pounding SO bad I could hardly move...weird how things hapen like that huh?

no pics today from yesterday :(

can I ask ya'll for a prayer request real quick-Matt is going into the doctor tomorrow, but when I got home from work yesterday he had this weird growth on his face near his cheekbone towards the upper part. It appeared suddenly and is pretty large not quite the size of a golf ball but a little smaller. Im sure its just a cyst or an infection or something like that, but I always tend to be a worrier, so I am trying not to this time :)

Day EIGHT!!! And I cant believe I did that!

Day eight done and over with...I really wanted to work out but Matt was being a turd and wanted to play on the computer on the couch to find a bike (we are BOTH getting bikes, yay for doing active stuff with my honey) anyway, I cant believe it, but I let him stay in the room while I worked out...of course with lots of rules (no laughing, no making comments of any kind etc...)

anway, here are todays pics :)
