The first one was over the weekend and it was a bona-fide nightmare. In it, everything that could possibly go wrong with the wedding, did. I had failed to pick out a white dress and opted for a pink and purple swirl prom dress instead, only to regret my decision right before the ceremony saying "All the other girls wear white." My hair and makeup lady wouldn't start working on me until 2:45, and my wedding started at 3. The band didn't have enough space in our venue (which was the basement of my parent's house) to put down a dance floor and the drummer was outright rude to me about it. I forgot to wear my veil, and my bridesmaids didn't want to be with me until the actual ceremony started. It was pretty awful and needless to say, I was a bit distraught once I woke up that morning. It was one of those nightmares where I had to remind myself that none of it had actually happened. Aren't those the worse?
So imagine my surprise and happiness when I went online Sunday morning and discovered that I won my first blog giveaway!! It was just what I needed to turn my mood around! I won a gorgeous hair clip to wear on my wedding day over at A Recessionista Ties the Knot!

Workout Updates: Obviously, I didn't really stick to my weight-watcher points over the NYE Weekend. Did anyone? Please let me know if you kept at it throughout the holidays because I'll want to know your secrets! I was fairly good leading up to the day though and luckily, I managed to get through the Holiday Season without gaining any weight (and yet..my clothes dooo feel tighter). It was really nice out on Saturday so I actually got in a 4.5 mile run followed by a 30 minute walk that day, and it felt great!! I NEVER run outside in the cold, so this was a great triumph for me. Yesterday I ran 5 miles on the treadmill at the gym. This morning I did an hour of Total Body Conditioning with my trainer, and it was killer! So I'm keeping on track with the work-outs and getting back into the swing of keeping track of my points! Wedding Dress fitting is Feb. 12th!!!
