Guess who's coming to NYC?!?!


OMG!!!! Can you guys believe it?! Nicole and I are going to make it to NYC for the upcoming brunch! We are beyond excited. We bought a groupon for a bus trip from Boston to NYC a few weeks ago, and figured what better time to come then for a famous NYC brunch?

Colleen has graciously offered us a place to stay Saturday night, so that is our plan. I can't wait to finally meet everyone! We'll keep you posted on more details as we figure them out! xxoo

Where I am...

Hey Everyone, It's me kristen...remember me? I used to be a pretty good blogger, but not so much recently. Don't fret, I am alive and I have been reading everyone's posts everyday, I just haven't had much to say. My weight is holding steady around 168, I am going to the gym about 3 times a week, and I am in wedding planning mode like crazy right now. My wedding is in 89 days and its all I can focus on right now. It's fun and stressful at the same time. Other then that not much else is new..I landed myself in ER last week for severe dehydration from a stomach bug, that was fun (not) I am all better now, so no worries.

Well the inspiration for this post came from Amy's last post, she posted a picture of her in her bathing suit at her biggest, with a huge grin on her face. She spoke of how happy she looked and felt at that time in her life. This struck a cord with me, as I was going through pictures on my computer a few days ago I found this old one of me. This was probably 20lbs from my heaviest, but I am super happy and proud of how I look in the bathing suit...REALLY?!? I went on spring break and wore this! It just goes to show I never let my weight control me, even when I looked like this-I was happy, I was proud, I never let anything prevent me from having fun. Now weighing 80lbs less, I think I worry more about a little muffin top here or cellulite there- why? Here is my resolution- be comfortable with myself the way I look right now. Any more weight that I lose is a bonus. I have come a long way from this picture, and I am proud of myself. I will never look like that again! Love ya's. xxoo

NYC Girls, Help Please

Hey Ladies,

Sorry I haven't been around much these past few weeks. Everything is fine, just been very busy with Rick on the mend, and our wedding in 3 months or so. EEEK!

Rick got called away on a business trip today, he needs to go to NYC next week for a few days and is in charge of making his own hotel reservation. Can anyone recommend a nice hotel in SoHo? Nice, but not super fancy or expensive.

Thanks so much, I promise to blog soon!
