*insert witty title here*

I had a wonderfully fabulously long weekend. And I totally didn't want to come back to work! :o)

The wedding was beautiful. I didn't look too much like Ronald McDonald and I managed not to trip in my dangerously high canary yellow heels. I think that my little brother is a very lucky guy. My new SIL is an incredibly precious girl. I'm incredibly happy for them. And incredibly happy that it's all over now! :o) I'm totally not a girly girl - despite the fact that I love to shop and pink is my absolute favorite color!

Pictures will come soon, I hope. I only managed to take one during all the craziness, but my little sister took a bajillion. All of them are of her, of course, but I'm in a few. *rolls eyes* I'll steal one from her MySpace and post it here.

I took a couple of other encouragement pictures while I had my camera out (but not in wedding garb) and I'll try to post one of those, too.

The rest of the weekend was great. We watched a ton of movies, ate waay too much junk, and just enjoyed each other. It's nice to have down time with the hub. It's pretty rare that we have a day totally off with nothing that we have to accomplish whatsoever. Very nice.

If you caught the way too much junk remark then you already know that I wasn't exactly OP this weekend, but I wasn't horrible and I'm just going to go on from here. I'm thinking about trying Wendie again. It makes sense to me, but last time I tried it I wasn't disciplined enough. We'll see.

Here's the goals that I'm working towards this week:

1. No WP's during the week!
2. At least 12 8 oz servings of water.
3. Several mini meals throughout the day.
4. Limit coke intake.
5. At least 2 servings of dairy a day.
6. At least 5 servings of fruits/veggies a day.
7. Some sort of activity daily.
8. *A New One* Getting to bed at a decent hour each night.

I like having these mini goals because it really makes me feel like I've accomplished something.

Tomorrow it will be a week until our family trip to the beach. I'm soo excited about going to the beach and it'll be really nice to have a long vacay! (this said right after a long weekend, I know...) :o)

I hope you all have wonderfully OP days!!

PS: We're 18 days until the first day of fall! I can't wait!!! :o)

I can't wait to see pics...I am sure you looked FAB!
Glad you had a fun weekend too, sometimes having a big event on a long weekend is just extra work! I can't believe how little I got done with three days off...I guess I was in relaxation mode!

So glad that you had a relaxing weekend - wish I could say the same! I'm also happy that the wedding went well and I CAN'T WAIT to see pics - I know you will be beautiful!

Let me know how Wendie goes.....I keep saying I need to do it but I just can't seem to muster up the courage for the high point day!

Let's call the weekend a Wendie 'test' run. Glad you had fun at the wedding and post those pics soon.
4 days and now a vacation? Where do you work - I need to find a job like that.
