Two hours until I leave for the airport!
This morning I was really hungry so I had a few pretzel sticks with a tbs of peanut butter and a mini farm apple. This thing was like half the size of my fist, it was so cute!
Then I did a bunch of work errands + picked up a few plane essentials for this afternoon from CVS (hair elastics, a new bridal magazine woohoo!!, and kleenex) and rushed home to finish packing my bag. I really hope I don’t have trouble at security because I put my magazines, new book (more on that next week- no time now), journal, snacks and toiletries into a small side bag so I wouldn’t have to jam my rolly suitcase into the overhead bin. The way I packed now my rolly will fit perfectly in the bin PLUS I will have all of my essentials right by my side. I travel all the time out of the same airport so hopefully some of my new friends are working.
I am really sad that PB and I aren’t traveling together but luckily my maid of honor will be with me!!!!! Also, I need to remember that this is probably the second or third-to-last time we will be meeting at our destination since soon enough we’ll be living in the same city! I seriously dream about that day every day, even though it’s so bittersweet to think of leaving my family. I guess it’s leaving one and joining another though isn’t it?
Sort of on this topic but sort of not is the idea of changing my last name. I decided this week that I am going to drop my last name and pick up my future hubbie’s. I was originally thinking of dropping my middle name and using my maiden name as my middle name, but I decided to just do First Name, Current Middle Name, PB’s last name. What are you doing/did you decide/do you think you will do? I kind of feel like getting rid of my last name is getting rid of a huge part of myself, but I’ve decided it’s the best option for me as my middle name is my dad’s name anyway (it’s a cultural thing), among other reasons. Anyone else feel like they are losing something special? Oh but I must also say that I am going to be so proud to bear my new last name!!!!!!!!!!!
At home I wanted to make some eggs but there were none left so I had a mixed green salad with a dressing of lemon juice, salt, and olive oil (so incredibly refreshing) + a small can of tuna and a low carb wheat wrap toasted with an oz of mozzarella cheese. Not the best lunch, but not the worst either. The salad was so amazing even though it was cold!
OK, I seriously need to get back to work as this post took me too long!!!!! Don’t forget to send me your Clif Z-bar giveaway entries! I’ve gotten a bunch of fun ones already!!!
