The ten-day forecast says….
In other words…perfect. Let’s hope it stays that way! I specifically wanted to get married in May because it’s not hot, but not chilly either, and really, I can’t ask for more than mid-sixties.
So, also, I bought this dress in Napa and I think it’s super cute. So I took a picture.
It has some cute pleating on the shoulders. V-neck wrap dresses are my absolute favorite clothing item ever—I’m pretty sure they flatter EVERYONE, and they’re so comfortable.
Anyway, work was kind of crazy today. I had to be at an event from 12-1 (my normal lunchtime) BUT I still wanted to go to the gym at lunch. So, in the morning, I had some Chobani with strawberries and GoLean Crunch before I left. Then, I went to the gym and did some lifting. I WANTED to run today, but, strangely, I woke up this morning with shin splints (mostly in my left leg). Uhh…okay. After a rest day? That makes sense. So, weights it was. In no particular order…
- Squats: 3 X 12 @ 115 lbs.
- Overhead shoulder press: 3 X 12 @ 30 lbs.
- Deadlifts: 3 X 12 @ 70 lbs.
- Upright row: 3 X 12 @ 40 lbs. (an increase!)
- Underhand grip pulldowns: 3 X 12 @ 48 lbs.
- Wide grip lat pulldowns: 3 X 12 @ 48 lbs.
- Chest press: 3 X 12 @ 50 lbs.
This was kind of a quickie because I was short on time—I had to rush off to a 2 o’clock meeting!
Luckily, it was a phone meeting. So had some delicious, delicious spinach with this:
I really love Newman’s Own salad dressings! They are super yummy and the ingredients aren’t scary. I have to say, I think this one is my favorite. I also had a multigrain bagel with the salad. (And yes, I keep a whole bottle in the work fridge now. It’s easier.)
And, for an afternoon snack, name that bar:
Came home to some fun wedding presents!
A roasting pan! I predict many, many chickens going in this one.
And the ice cream maker attachment for our KitchenAid Mixer. Oh yes. With summer coming, I will make my own ice cream at least once SO HELP ME GOD before it gets cold again.
No box is safe in our house, though.
We’re down to the last two delinquent RSVPers and Tim is going to call them tonight. It’s been a nice, calm day wedding wise, thank goodness. I’m really excited to see everyone coming into town for it! I made mani/pedi appointments (and I’m REALLY nervous about getting a pedicure, what with my black nail and the like), and that’s about it. We’re getting close, folks!
What’s your favorite salad dressing?
