Bridal Shower Bash

Hi Everyone- As promised- here are pictures from my amazing bridal shower that took place Saturday. The location was a total surprise- It ended up being on the ocean in Salisbury MA. It was freakin AMAZING- I couldn't imagine a more gorgeous location or shower. This is my gorgeous 'bouquet' that was made from all the ribbons and bows from our gifts
This is my mommy and I. *LOVE* her!
This is me with my best friends Rachel and Nicole (who you all know)
This is my beautiful bridal party- I couldn't ask for a better group of ladies

Look @ this cake! Have you ever seen anything like this? It was un-real!! Rick proposed @ a lighthouse, so the girls went with nautical theme
This is our overwhelming stack of gifts- It took us 2 hours to get through them all! We got so many amazing gifts.

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. I am going back to kickboxing tonight and guess who I'm dragging with me? Yup- I talked Rick into giving it a try! Wish us luck! xxoo

Girls gone wild- NYC edition

Happy Monday Everyone!

I am almost recovered from this crazy weekend in NYC. I was bad and didn't take any pictures while I was there, so thank god others did. I stole the group shot from Angie, so I could have it forever and ever.

Words honestly can't describe this weekend for me. I wasn't able to attend BOOBS last year in Chicago, so this was my first big bandster get together. It was such a surreal experience for me. To actually be able to meet people who's blogs I have followed for nearly 2 years...amazing! To meet so many different ladies all at different stages in our journeys- some just starting, some who have crossed the finish line. When I got home all of my friends asked me how my weekend was, and I all I can say is amazing- I don't know how to explain it or even where to begin. To meet people for the first time, and feel like you know these people inside and out-to be able to be myself and not be afraid of what people are thinking. To have been able to 'meet' someone through blogger, and stay at their place without ever actually meeting or talking to them in person is truly insane from the outside, but to us completely normal. To be able to stay @ this persons house and clog their toilet (yup I did it) and not be mortified..totally normal. Colls- I freakin love you girl, thank you so much for letting me stay with you and cuddle with your kittys.

I will leave you with a couple of pictures that I do have. Nicole and I took a 5 hour bus ride on a ghetto ass bus, and we almost went crazy-but theres no one else I rather have taken this trip with!

Work-Out Wednesday

Karin over at Lap Band Gal challenged all of us to post pre and post workout pics of ourselves today for work-out Wednesday. I bought a groupon a few weeks ago for a kickboxing class, it included 1 personal training session and 4 group classes. Let me pre-face this with, I have NEVER taken any sort of kickboxing class EVER. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. This wasn't any gym kickboxing class...this my friends was at a martial arts center with hard core karate people. Part of my package also included boxing gloves-which was probably the main selling point for me... Here I am, during my water break and when I get home and showed Ricky my moves!

I used my personal session today, and it was a total body workout- not only did we punch bags, we also did jumping jacks, pushups, and about a hundred different types of situps. It was super fun and I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried something new today.
What did everyone else do for workout Wednesday??
