It has literally been weeks since I’ve written a blog post and I can only blame one thing….THE WEDDING. Yep, my daughter got hitched this past Friday and a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders and I think a two-ton semi has been lifted off of her much daintier ones!
My lovely, capable daughter did an amazing job of organizing this beautiful shindig in under 10 months, with the help of her patient, hard-working fiance (now husband!). If the team work they displayed throughout this stressful planning process is any indication of all their future endeavors together, I know there will be no stopping them in whatever they do throughout their lives!
And, yes, my Mother of the Bride weight loss program worked spectacularly and enabled me to fit easily into my MOB dress! And in the immortal words of George Peppard’s character Hannibal in the A-Team, “Don’t you love when a plan comes together?” I know I sure did!
And it all started with the candy buffet that was set up at the wedding reception,
progressed to Crumbs Bakery in Virginia,
And now I’m feeling not only guilty, but downright lousy because I’ve discovered a side effect from all this healthy living ~~ eating better makes me feel better. Simple but true darn it, because to be honest with you, I’m feeling kind of poorly right now after a three-day sugar spree. I won’t lie to you, it was mighty tasty and I devoured every morsel I could get my hands on, but I think tomorrow it’s time to strap on my tennies, run a few miles, and start counting those calories again.
