Friday: picked my sister up from the train after work and headed to a happy hour where T joined us. The 3 of us went to a college hockey watch party at another bar, my alma mater was playing our rivals. It was nice to see some of my DC alumni friends!
Saturday: T made us nice breakfast then my sister and I headed to Body Pump at my gym. She was excited to go to a class since she is a Body Pump instructor at home, so she rarely gets to just attend a class these days. We stayed for CX Worx, which uses resistance bands and I’m always afraid I’m going to get snapped with it. The three of us spend the afternoon at our beautiful Loudon County breweries in Northern VA. Dirt Farm Brewing is a favorite and we checked out some Purcellville ones before headed to this random old hole in the wall restaurant that T and I found out there last month.
Sunday: We all slept in, but I needed to drop sissy off at the training by 10am. After dropping her off I parked near the national mall and briskly walked around the monuments for an hour. I couldn’t get too sweaty because I had a massage booked at 1pm. Ran a few errands before my massage. It’s my old massage place near where I used to live and I had one more massage voucher to use. I’ve had this therapist before and once again he talked the entire time. Ugh. Glad to try a new place where I currently live. T gave me a gift certificate to try a place out here for Valentine’s Day! Once I got back home T and I took our relationship to the next level by combining phone plans into one family plan! I also got a new iPhone 7, my 6 was not longer really holding a charge after 2+ years.
Great weekend all around. I love whenever T and my sister get to spend time together. I also used this weekend to gauge her interest in being my Maid of Honor or a Bridesmaid. She’s generally not into wedding stuff and has opted out of being in some of her friends’ weddings, but she said she’d love to be my MOH, so I’m excited!
It was weird trying to figure out who to inform when and how. Who got the Monday calls/facetimes, verses who to text on Tuesday and Wednesday. I had some work meetings on Wednesday and Thursday morning where I knew I wanted to tell people in person. Who I would be upset if they found out via social media and not from me. So I posted to other social media yesterday afternoon and got a ton of lovely responses, but I’m glad I was thoughtful in who I told how/when.
I even walked into my Weight Watchers meetings a declared I had a new “why” to add to my list and showed off my ring. Everyone was excited, so even though they are a new community it was really nice! I even got my 4th meeting key-chain yesterday and saw another 1.2 loss. BOOM!
Oh and my sister is coming to DC this evening, this trip was planned over a month ago. I’m excited to celebrate with her this weekend and then one of my other besties and her husband are coming down for a preplanned trip the next weekend!!
So this happened!
Only T would propose on a Monday night after I get home from the gym!
As a life long music lover who really digs into song lyrics I thought I’d be able to pick a quote to express how I feel, but I am at a loss.
The only quote that could begin to sum things up is fittingly from, “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds, “I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you.”
My whole journey to this exact point began back when I started this Tumblr and started making my health and happiness the priority in my life. Happiness attracts more happiness into life, that I’m sure of.
Even after feeling like I lost my groove last fall, I picked myself back up, refocused and have been happier in the past 2 months than I’ve been in a long while!
I wanted to share this news here before it hits other social media because I truly value this space and value the support and community I’ve always found here!
Loss is loss, I’ll take it. After starting Weight Watchers I was surprised to see some big losses, but losing ~1 a week works for me!
I also got my highlights touched up this weekend.
I’m growing my hair super long for a wedding I’m in this June (in an effort to cover my boobs since my dress is not very flattering). We’ll see if I keep it long, who knows maybe if I have a wedding of my own in the foreseeable future I’ll keep the length (June will be 3 years w/ T so I’m just sayin…)
I need to take some time to straighten it, it’s been a while and I forgot how long was hair has gotten!
Spend my Sunday evening grocery shopping and meal prepping up a storm
