Weekend Recap

Why do weekends off go by so fast??

Friday night we just relaxed after a very very long week ...

Since Trevor had a Bachelor Party at Turning Stone Casino Saturday, I decided it would be a perfect day for wedding dress shopping!!

My parents, Trevor's mom and my sister all came with me!!  My sister best friend wedding planner most amazing person in the world set up all the appointments for us.  We visited three places in Saratoga:

1. Danielle's - I did find one dress that I liked there, but have completely forgotten about it at this point because the next two places had much better selections.  I was not impressed with the service at all here.  The women that worked there were very nice, but they were not attentive at all.  The dressing room felt like a closet and the overall atmosphere was nothing special. 

2. Lily Saratoga -  The service here was fantastic!! The woman who helped me was Monica and she was great!  I found a dress that I absolutely loved here, it was the only one that brought tears to my eyes.  They didn't make me feel rushed to make a decision and really took there time with me.  It was my favorite place of the day.

3. Something Bleu - It was a great experience here.  It was more upscale than the other 2 places and had more of a couture ambiance.  They had an Angolique Bridal Truck Show and I really liked a lot of the dresses from the collection.  I fell in love with one that was similar to my first love back at Lily's.  The service was great, but we were cut down to only having exactly one hour and when my mother suggested that I tried on a dress they had just brought out, the woman said that our time was up and I couldn't try that last one on.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I am so happy that I was able to share it with the people I love.  I found two other dresses at Davids Bridal that I am going to try on and if I don't fall in love with either I will have to make a decision between the two I found fell in love with on Saturday!! Decisions, decisions, decisions!!

Trevor got home this morning and it was been great hanging out and watching football together all day.  I hate it when he goes away, but at least I got to spend the night at my sister's house and see my nephew and my parents.

Back to work tomorrow ...

A Few Of My Favorite Things

I am obsessed with the following two things right now:

Love my Camelbak, in fact I have 2 that I love equally.  
I just purchased Trevor one and he seems to love it too, but I don't
think he is obsessed as I am. 

Recently a co-worker of mine insisted that I try these and now
I can't stop eating them!  They are so yummy and fun
to eat!

Some things in life are just so great!!!

Yes, like winning.  Or if you are a Jersey shore fan, twinning.  

I have been loving Pinterest since August (only reason why I remember the actually month I started using it is because my sister introduced me to at the Maroon 5/Train concert... Thanks Sissy!). 

Trevor really never understood my pinning obsession and would get quite annoyed when I would stare at the computer screen for hours.

He has recently become OK with Pinterest for 2 reasons:

1. Since the "twinning" J.Shore episode he thinks that pinning sounds like twinning and it makes him laugh (Hey, whatever makes him ok with me loving Pinterest is good by me)!

2. I have found and cooked LOTS of great recipes for him

So far I have made:

Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili


Roasted Tomatoes with Shrimp and Feta

Crock Pot Baked Apples

Want to make Butternut Squash Risotto, but all the squash 
looked gross at the store. I ended up using the risotto recipe
and made Shrimp to go over it. 

Nutella Hot Chocolate

All recipes have been great so far!! I love the Crock Pot ones because as we all know, I have an obsession with my crock pot.  

Pinterest has been great for recipes, wedding ideas, workout ideas, crafty projects and so much more.  

Follow my boards here to see what else I am loving!!

Wheat Grass

Good for you, but Gross??

We have been drinking Wheat Grass every morning this week and can feel the difference in our energy levels, but it is seriously gross.

Currently we are trying Amazing Grass from GNC:

It is organic and suppose to do all these things for you:

  • Increases and sustains energy naturally
  • Detoxifies and cleanses your body
  • High alkalinity helps balance acidic PH levels
  • Strengthens immune system
  • Complete food with enzymes and all essential amino acids
  • Natural source of anti-oxidants to help repair damaged cells
  • Field grown outdoors through winter
  • Vegan, Gluten Free and Raw
  • 5+ daily servings of vegetables 
We usually mix it with water, I don't like the consistency of it so I have been trying to mix it with my favorite morning smoothie when I can:

1 banana
1/3 cup of frozen blueberries
1/2 cup of diced frozen strawberries
1 cup of skim milk 
1 scoop of wheat grass 

It is a bit more bearable.

Any recommendation for different better tasting wheat grass?
