PhillyBoy just left. Love of my life. He took some of my “stuff” with him, and now my condo is starting to feel bare. See the really ugly pic below?
Those shelves and cases used to be full of memories. Now they are empty, awaiting new ones… in Philly! I am slowly moving down bit by bit, so by the time I officially move out I will only have clothes + furniture left!
I am watching Twilight right now (again), and it really is the perfect way to end my weekend.. which was nuts. Here was the schedule:
Work, pick up invitations from Leanne, gym, market, prep foods for PB and I, set up the invitation assembly line, eat dinner with PB, bed.
7:15 AM wake up call, drive up to Stoughton with PB and dad to look at rentals
noon AMAZING brunch at Nick’s on Broadway
the entire rest of the afternoon and evening: assemble invitations (they are done)
dinner with dad and PB at Siena on Federal Hill
great workout at gym
bfast + church for mass and a meeting with the priest for the wedding
home quickly to straighten up and make lunch/dinner for PB and I
show the condo
pack up a load of stuff for PB to take home. say goodbye
get ready for the week
Fwew. That was INSANE!!!! But we got SO much wedding stuff done this weekend, I can’t believe it is coming so soon! We are sending out our invites tomorrow since we have so many out of town guests! I wish I could freeze time to remember these days forever.
A little wedding planning preview (from the last two weekends of madness)… A small zoomed in portion of one of our many centerpieces (we are doing at least 5 different ones):
And our entree for the reception: Center cut filet mignon with champagne risotto (something my mom was famous for making) with grilled mini zucchini + a fried zucchini flower (seen here with green beans as the zucchini aren’t in season yet) with a drizzle of an awesome sauce that I can’t remember
Ehhhhhh I guess I can give away another little secret… some of our guests read this blog so I don’t want to overshare until the wedding! But… at midnight after loads of dancing we are bringing out a fun treat for the guests!!!!
A sign will read:
“A Philly Boy meets a Rhodey Girl
Enjoy Philadelphia’s Soft Pretzels & R.I.’s frozen Del’s Lemonade”
Eating while in a rush:
This weekend was all about GO-GO-GO, as many of our lives tend to be. How do you still manage to eat healthy? I always try to keep a healthy emergency snack in my bag (old school granola bar) and prep a bunch of foods ahead of time (like I did Friday afternoon) so that there is always something healthy to grab in a pinch. I also try to stick to my schedule of eating every few hours. If I wait too long between meals I tend to eat wayyyyy too much! Now it’s your turn to share….
