Perfect Day for a Nap

It was all I could do this morning to pull myself out of bed. It's the perfect day to stay in bed and do nothing. Rainy, dreary, not cold, but I love being lazy on rainy days. Guess I better never move to Seattle huh? I'd never leave my bed.

So these last few days visiting with Sara have been awesome. I told her several times that I wish she'd been here the entire time I'd lived here. I can only imagine the adventures we would have had. I am excited that I'll get to see her some before I move though. It's been a long time since I've had such great conversations with someone other than Sean!

We did get a few pictures last night of us with the dogs and just us, so I'll have to post them once I get them uploaded.

Lindsay if you are reading this, we all have to get together and meet up! Just say yes. :)

I saw the craziest thing this morning on CNN. Evidently some brides are now asking their bridesmaids to get plastic surgery for the wedding. Can you believe that? Talk about beyond rude! This is how I imagine the conversation would go.

Bride: " Will you do me the honor of being in my wedding party? You've been such a good friend for X amount of years and I'd love to have you be a part of my special day."

Bridesmaid: "Of course! I'm so excited to be a part of your wedding! If there's anything I can do to help just let me know."

Bride: " Well...... actually I was wondering if you would mind having some plastic surgery done? I want everyone to look asthetically pleasing in my pictures and your nose just isn't cutting it for me right now."

Bridezilla anyone?

The lengths people will go to, I swear!

My parents aren't going to be in until later tonight, probably around 8. My brother wanted to come, but he had to work the next 3 days, so that obviously isn't going to happen. I'm sad he's not able to come, he's a real hoot!

Sean is going to be gone for about a week, starting Sunday or Monday and then in November he's going to be gone for most of the month. I'm really hoping in the time that he's gone I can drop a few pounds. It's always easier to lose weight when he's not around stuffing delicious potato creations in my mouth.

I just realized it's Thursday and I haven't been to the gym since last Saturday. I really should go tonight (key word: should) but I still need to get a card for my mom and another present and clean up a little around the house. Plus I really, really want to take a nap so I'm thinking I won't make it to the gym until Sunday. Next week I'm going to have to really ramp it up though if I want to lose some more weight by the holidays. Why can't taking weight off be as easy as putting it on?

I'm still reading Jen Lancaster's Bitter in Black and if you haven't read it yet, you must! It's sarcastic and hilarious and just all around great!

Hope everyone has a great Thursday!

Man you sound just like me about going the gym! I "should" go but I am so good at postponing! I wish it was as easy to drop as it is to gain! I hear ya!

LOVE Bitter is the New Black, but I also really like Bright lights, Big some points I was actually laughing put loud in front of complete strangers

Lindsay said...

gee uhh...YES YES YES!

*R* and I are heading back to California to see his family over Halloween weekend, but the other weekend is great for me!

YAY! I'm so excited! It's rainy here to and I feel you on the nap situation.

I can't believe it! Brides do some pretty crazy things!!!

I feel the SAME way about the weight gain! I gained so much after my surgery and now I'm just getting back into the gym. I've still got about 7 pounds to go!! AGH!

I read Bitter is the New Black a few months ago, it's awesome! I just got her next two yesterday and can't wait to start reading them. Enjoy, it's hilarious!

Mrs. Forever said...

Wow -- I can't believe a bride would ever ask that! What a great friend.....

I totally understand the I *should* work out feeling. It is so hard to motivate myself to get to the gym some days! I gained so much weight after surgery and I have a long way to go until I'm happy -- and I guess it helps that I still have physical therapy too!

If you don't like cold, dreary and gray then don't move to Germany!! It is like that ALL winter long :( ugh.

Sgt and Mrs Hub said...

Oh, for the simpler days of having people in your wedding because they were your true friends.

Guess that's not so popular anymore.

Have a wonderful time with your parents!!


Mrs. Forever said...

P.S. I tagged you!

The Mrs. said...

Now if you ask someone to get plastic surgery do you need to pay for it? How might that work? Is there any etiquette for that?

yikes. its all I can say. And your post title makes me want to take a nap!
