My weekend starts early bc I have Friday off so the FI and I will be taking our e-pics and maybe doing our registry after. I have a busy weekend and Sunday is the FI's bday :-)
I'm always more excited for his bday than he is and he gets more excited for my bday idk. Since were at the 8th month mark I have to make reservations for us to do our food tasting and meet with my MOH & BM's about their dresses. And I must get started on my DIY projects.

-Bottles of liqueur; nice but nnaahh
-Bottles of honey; I like but he probably wouldn't
-A candy table at the reception; he didn't like it but I loved the idea his exact words "no I don't want anyone to get cavities or rotten teeth and try to blame it on us" hahaha I thought that was hilarious bc if our candy table could do all of that those teeth were jacked up way before us
-Bottles of hot sauce; cute but we don't really eat hot sauce
-Chocolate truffles; he loved the idea and so did I :-)
I found a few chocolate shops near to my job and bought some truffles for us to sample. The first place we sampled was 5th Avenue Chocolatiere...we sampled other places but I really don't remember them that's how good this place is. So were going to use them for our truffles they have so many yummy flavors; Grand Marnier (his fav), Raspberry, Peanut butter, Champagne,etc. The shop is cute and small, it's located on 3rd Ave and the ppl that I meet were very nice and helpful. They will deliver the chocolates in individual boxes of two with our choice of ribbon color. I'm too excited about this :-)

Before I proceed let me just say that I'm crackin up over this pic hahahha. I know I posted it but isnt it funny I used work out to this song when Kanye first came out with the College Dropout CD, this was my motivation song when I used to run...well that and Jay Z's "Encore".
In honor of my up coming wedding and 30th bday (Durty 30 is what I'm calling it) I decided to get back into shape. Not just for the wedding but for a lifetime I'm getting older and I want to take better care of myself. So I recently purchased Dr. Ian "Extreme Fat Smash Diet" and Jillian Michael "30 Day Shred", people let me tell you the work out is no joke. It's 20 min of non-stop exercising combining strength, cardio and abs. Some serious stuff by the time the work out is over your body will feel like spaghetti. It has three levels so when your body get comfortable you have to move on to the next level. I hate it when I'm doing it but I love how I feel at the end. I'm on day 4 please pray for me.
Most of us know Dr. Ian from VH1's "Celebrity Fit Club" (shout out to my sis at MTV can I get a check for promoting this) and "The 50 Million Pound Challenge" so we know he reputable. His book is great, I have the "Fat Smash" book but wanted to see what else he had. This book is broken down into three "levels", gives you meal plans from day to day and has tons of yummy recipes. I got this book the same day as the DVD so it's day 4 on this too. I'm good on the eating part but I could use the support.
As for my durty 30 I'm looking forward to taking on this new stage of my life and sharing it with you.
