Glee, joy & busyness

Am feeling in the blogging mood. Tonight has been spent introducing Sarah & Crystal to Glee, going over wedding stuff with Crystal (an amazing bridesmaid), and sorting through all my groceries (chopping veggies for soup & snacks, packaging food and sorting un-perishable food for stacking). I am happy.

Have you watched Glee? Sue Sylvester is one of the most terrifying characters in TV history. She is not only infuriating but also  incredible entertaining.
I have also discovered that I love Disaronno. Mmmm.

This week I will make 3 types of non-dairy creamy soups: Asparagus, Tomato & Celery. I am so enjoyable learning to make things that are healthy, inexpensive and enjoyable. I have discovered recently that I have high cholesterol; the doctor says it isn't super bad yet, but that I need to watch it. I suppose this is supposed to be a bad thing but when it comes to being healthy I really need external motivation so i am actually glad. He says he will see me in 3 months and expects to see change. So right off the bat I went for a run. 1 block running, 1 block walking, etc. I am sore but happy. I have just gone grocery shopping & bought mostly veggies & fish. All the veggies are now chopped, packaged & ready to be made into soups, stirfries, salads & snacks. I love feeling organized.

Wedding stuff has been going really well. I have pretty much finished the invites; just need to send them out to be printed. I need to find inexpensive, card sized envelopes. any thoughts?
In the beginning I had figured out what the table decorations would look like but since have come up with a whole new idea. So fun! I just need to figure out the best place to get 28 large round vases, and 83 small round vases. Hm. My wonderful bridesmaid Crystal is making labels for all the envelopes. i feel very loved!

Back to health, I am very excited to get healthy. i would like to not die early. Also, I didn't even find my wedding motivation enough to get healthy...and I feel like I owe it to my future husband to at least try and be healthy for our long term relationship...not being super healthy runs in my family and i would like to kick this now, not in 30 years.

This weekend is CRAZY busy. Wedding showers for friends, hangouts with friends, friends over for the weekend, meetings, coffee/lunch dates, and maybe even sleep??

Every night as I go to bed alone in my single, ikea bed, that is falling apart from moving (it slowly slides apart in the night and has to be pushed back together each time I get up) I realize that Paul & I own a king sized bed and have registered for beautiful (& manly for Paul) bedding. Oh I wish for May and a beautiful, big bed to sleep in, and nights not having to say good night to Paul. That sounds like it could be too much information; but I just thoroughly enjoy talking with him and hate having to say good night at the end of the night and go our seperate ways. I can't wait to have a place alone to chat before sleep.

Ugh, I need to go fold laundry and sort out my dresser. It's all over the place! I need a good system. Any thoughts?

I would get so frustrated knowing I owned a good bed and couldn't use it yet!
