More & More Favors!

Another Day of Hard Work!
So we went at it again yesterday. Picked up another box of 40 plain candle votives & I sat at my mother's kitchen table for 8 long hours (with a back ache) gluing on ribbon, diamonds, charms, and purple tooling. They came out beautiful. I felt bad though, whenever my mom tried to help me- I went into Bridezilla mode & just critiqued everything she , did, which then I would redo whatever it was she did.... more perfectly LOL She was a good sport & understood. I just have OCD and want everything perfect.

Once I was done with the votive favors I started trying ideas for the center pieces. I will have about 20-22 tables depending on the responses for the wedding and so I have 22 glass pieces that I need to look absolutely beautiful.

I decided to go with purple tooling, tied it around the glass vase in a cute little bow, then glued a diamond above the knot, and below the knot. I have some clear jelly-like liquid that will go in the vases, with some purple diamond shaped crystals on top. I then might use a candle, or some sort of flower to top it off. Pictures to follow much later on....

Last but not least- vases. Lots of big vases. My mom keeps asking me why I am buying so many and what I am going to do with them? This one on the right- I will probably put a long purple candle inside, or a pillar candle and have the crystals around it. But this is just an example of how fabulous everything is turning out. With just some beautiful ribbon and a bit of diamonds you can turn the most ordinary glass piece into something very classy and expensive looking. One of the vases I got yesterday will end up with water and a purple chinese fish in it. And will maybe be placed on the card or the cake table. Another vase will end up with floating flowers in it (purple ofcourse) and will also be placed on one of the tables. And I just cannot wait for PJ to walk into this venue, along with the other 200 guests and just be amazed at how beautiful everything looks. And it's been so much fun. Ill write again next weekend with more wedding photos- as I will be meeting my cake designer early Sunday morning to go over ideas and taste testing!!!!

And as for Weightloss....
Last week working on stuff at my mother's house I was sucked into McDonalds and at home was forced into cheeseburgers & hotdogs on the grill. At which on Monday (just to check) I weighed in 3 lbs over. I worked really hard and by Thursday had gone down another 4 1/2 lbs which only left me 1 1/2 lbs down since my last weigh in. So that was kind of a bummer. This weekend I did a little better. Although still eating from the grill at my mom's- I opted for a burger and potatoe salad and then today when PJ cooked for me I had a CHICK PATTY grilled to a crisp over a very big salad & it was delicious. But because it is 101 degrees right now and I have no one to go catch some waves with me, I have already eaten 2 italian ices which come in at 130 calories a piece. I have not logged my food intake for the last 3 days because I have been so extremely busy but tomorrow I will get back to counting calories and back on the grind. And if it isnt so hot this week, maybe walk a few miles each day. So... needless to say in the last 15 weeks I went from 278 lbs to 263 lbs which is still an accomplishment for me to be proud of. My clothes are feeling a little better and I am feeling a little sexier just knowing that I can do this finally <3
