Heat Wave!

It got up in the 40's today in Delaware.  A real heat wave compared to the rest of the week.  I decided to take advantage and head out for a run around the neighborhood.
I look kind of miserable here but I swear I wasn't. I think I was just concentrating on taking a really bad picture with my camera phone.
Check out my sweeet fanny pack!

Once I actually got outside and stopped taking pictures of myself I ran 3.72 miles in 33.35 (9.02 pace).  I had my ipod on and would pick up my pace every time the chorus of a song would play.  Let me tell you...pumped up kicks plays the chorus 3 straight times at the end of the song. Phew! I got back to the house and warmed up dinner that I had made yesterday.
Spinach Lasagna Rolls.  All I did was take 4  whole wheat lasagna noodles and cooked them according to the box instructions.  I mixed together some fat free ricotta cheese, spinach, garlic salt and parmesean cheese and spread it out on each noodle.  Then I rolled them up and topped them with sauce and mozzarella cheese.  I cooked them in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  I originally got the idea from this recipe.

So we are currently counting down less than five months until the wedding! Yikes! Until now I have been a lazy bride. Oops.  I was not born a planner.  Good thing I have friends, family and a fiance that remind me that this thing is creeping up on us fast so I should get my butt in gear.  I made a list yesterday of all the things I want to accomplish in the next 2 months.  I checked off three things today!
My to do list.  Today I ordered mason jars and ordered floating white tea candles for this:
Think they would be perfect for down the aisle in here:

  1. Hey, I don't know if your venue has specific Florists they work with, but Carolynn really likes Glasgow Florist in People's Plaza, across from McGlynn's. She's got arrangements and bulk stuff there before. Apparently, they also have a parrot in the store too!

  2. Thanks for the idea I will definitely have to check it out. And I might have to steal your wife away at some point for some flower ideas lol. Have fun with the pup tomorrow!

  3. Haha, I should've consulted her first. She says their store is a mess, but they make nice arrangements.
    Are you having a Florist do everything? If so, and you can talk with Carolynn about do it for you for cheaper.

  4. Right now I'm thinking I'll have the florist do the reception flowers and my bouquet. I'm still deciding if doing the bridesmaids bouquets myself (with some help) would be a good idea. And then I'd also like to do a few arrangements for the ceremony for the front. I would definitely need some help from Carolynn though. I dont think I have an eye for that stuff
