Let’s Talk Wedding.

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on August 12, 2009

Hi friends :)

I JUST finished baking the wedding favours!! Goodness me!!!!! I have been going non stop all day today. Don’t worry I will be showing you the pictures, but the bride has to see them first! ;) My mother in law is going to be doing the rest of my alterations tonight, so I am gearing up for that. I also need to (over) pack! lol.

I got good news from Tina the other day. My 160+ Healthy Living Summit Glo Bars made it to her house in just 4 days! I was shocked at how fast that shipment was. :) whohoo!


I was able to squeeze in a great stress relieving run after lunch today. I felt SO much better once I was home and showered. It is amazing what exercise can do for the mind, body, and soul.

The run:

  • 49 minutes
  • Distance: 5.39 miles
  • Avg pace: 9:13 min/mile
  • Max pace: 7:52 min/mile
  • Max heart rate: 175 bpm
  • Avg heart rate: 162 bpm

I stopped back at my house half way through to get a big glass of water. I was dripping in sweat! It has been so hot and humid lately. The heat wave is supposed to continue until next week too. The great news is they are calling for sun for Friday (Leah’s wedding).

I think you are coming to my neck of the woods today! I was reading about Leah’s bachelorette and recognized something familiar. If the wedding “town” is close to the bachelorette party “city” you are in my ‘hood.

Two FYI’s…no gas/rest stops on 401 west of London (I was in TO last Friday) and it’s going to be a HOT a STEAMY weekend down here. Temps are 29 degrees today and supposed to be the same for the next few days.

Have a wonderful time and a safe journey!
