Grace and Peace

Confession

All I want in life is to have a pure, joyful and encouraging soul. God please help me get there.

Our new apartment!

Guess who is moving to DC? This girl right here. Apartment is leased, I move after my wedding September 2nd. SO HAPPY. I will post some pictures of our BEAUTIFUL apartment.

My Orange Pomegranate martini is delicious and I am ridiculous. :P

Dear Rosebud,
Why didn’t we have these mini dreams-come-true for my mini bridal shower?
I still love you,
Rosebud

Kelly, can you make these for my bachelorette party? :)

Practice Mindfulness

“Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).” – James Baraz”

Don’t mind the freshly showered situations. Does this work for a bachelorette party?

Compliments

I went home for wedding cake tasting this weekend and my mom said to me, “You look so skinny! How are you keeping the weight off?” It was the first time my mom has acknowledged my progress. It made my weekend! Also I weighed in at 130! YAY! 5 to 10 more pounds in three-ish months- TOTALLY possible!

Today was productive

11 hours of work

2 hours of wedding invitation work

Success.


Today was an emotional day at work. Sometimes I think being a social worker is some evil person’s plan to numb me to other people’s pain. I must leave work at work.
