We are currently 16 days away from our wedding!!!! I have that sensation of “so close, yet so far away” and at the end of the night I am truly exhausted. I found myself with a little extra time this morning and thought I would share some things that I have been thankful for this past week, Thinking Out Loud style!
Last week we headed to Michigan and spent some time with my family, finishing up some wedding planning stuff & getting to have some fun & relax.
Saturday after fixing my biggest wedding blunder (hopefully fixing!) we headed to spend the afternoon with my mom’s family. We had big family pictures taken and then had a BBQ at my uncles house. My uncle definitely has a big-kid playground, with a pool, tetherball pole, trampoline and ping-pong table… to say Brent was in heaven would be an understatement!
We then headed home relaxed a bit then headed out to dinner at the restaurant we are having our Rehearsal dinner at. We had an amazing dinner & all got different oven-fired pizza’s and each one was super good. I am so excited to share this fun restaurant with our wedding party in a couple weeks!
I am so thankful to have been able to spend some time on Sunday OUTSIDE! We headed to the Tigers game and had great weather, mostly. Enjoying the game with the perfect temperature and little stress was a great way to disconnect from my brain & reconnect with my family.
We also bought tickets to go watch the Tigers play the Cubs the week of our wedding. I am using that game as my “STOP & LET GO” moment during our wedding week, if there are things that aren’t done by the time we leave for the game they aren’t going to get done & I am going to let go of them!
On Monday I celebrated Memorial Day with my aunt paying tribute to the men & women who have done so much for us. We participated in the MURPH workout, which is traditionally a CrossFit workout done on Memorial Day to honor Michael P Murphy a Navy SEAL. We donated money to the scholarship program and got our death-on.
While during the workout I didn’t feel to terrible, I can still feel that my lats are SWOLLEN & my palm is still ripped (although healing). I definitely gave the workout my all and my Aunt & I finished in about 55minutes which I was pretty happy with!
Wednesday we were treated with a shower by Brent’s co-workers. It was so nice to get to step away from the clinic and enjoy lunch with the people Brent spends so much of his week with. They were so generous and gave us some really nice gifts which we are super excited to put to good use. Brent was pretty surprised when he walked in to their “typical monthly lunch” to see me sitting there! A great way to break up the week…
A not so great way to spend your Wednesday night is by digging soaking wet clothing out of your broken washing machine… I am not really sure what happened to our washing machine but it decided to die yesterday after a full load of laundry was sitting in it. Thankfully we have a decent sized porch railing that we were able to hang some of the soaking stuff on until we went to bed. Also THANKFULLY we rent and the maintenance people have to deal with the soaking wet mess!
PHEW!! So much to think about and talk about. I hope you all have a great weekend, we have a jam packed one planned over hear but hopefully we will find sometime to relax & unwind.
