As long as I’m rambling about what I’ve done lately, let’s zip back to one month ago today. Two of my best friends got hitched! Happy One-Month Anniversary, Liz and Cody!!! I was Liz’s personal attendant, so basically I was just there for whatever she needed … like picking up the cake, bringing an extra razor and hair dryer, helping to maintain a bit of sanity, stuff like that.

Yea, I was the Wedding Singer :) I was totally nervous, though, because I lost my voice less than a week before the big weekend, but I made sure to keep hydrated and drink tea. Worked like a charm because I sounded like an angel! Well, except for the part when I giggled in the middle. Oops! Not kidding.
My parents were there, too!
And here’s me and my mom. Cute :)
I am sooooo happy for Cody and Liz! I’ve known Liz since kindergarten, we lived together two years in college, and we STILL like each other. That doesn’t happen with every friendship. Cody and Liz complement each other perfectly, and I would know because I basically lived with both of them those two years in college. They both know probably too much about me, and neither of them are afraid to keep me in check. We all need that in our friends. I never stop laughing when I’m with them. Love these two :)
(Here’s a diet and workout tip for you: Attend a 90+-degree wedding reception with 1 billion percent humidity and dance your little heart out. I was a sweatmonster! I woke up 3 pounds lighter than I was the morning before! Obviously it was due to dehydration and whatnot, but it was crazy to see the number on the scale … until I drank tons of water and ate. Then I was back to normal.)
I ate a few bites of spinach artichoke dip with pita chips. I had about 500 chips with salsa and about 500 chips with guacamole. The guac isn’t pictured but should be. I made it and it rocked! Liz made the salsa with stuff from her CSA and it was soooo good. You can’t buy salsa like that. Fresh and homemade is best.
For my main meal (as if I was still hungry after the 1000 chips and dip), I had a veggie burger with mustard and onions, oven-baked asparagus, and a yummy little rice salad with black beans and broccoli. I’ll need to get that recipe from Liz’s cousin.
And then of course, dessert. Sarah made a chocolate cake with zucchini (also from the CSA). Sarah and I figured it’s good for us because there’s zucchini in it. A “chocolately salad,” she called it. I only had one piece even though it was still warm and soooo yummy.
Peace, lovelies! And thanks a ton for the sideache advice, those of you who commented on my last post. I'll keeps all those tips in mind during my next run :)
