Getting Things Started

So I haven't run since December 1st.  I did Insanity for about a week and a half in mid-December.  And then my world turned upside down with the trip to NYC, the engagement, the holidays, and now starting off the year with work and wedding planning.

And a move.

Adam has accepted a job for a company just outside of Indianapolis, and things have been moving quickly.

This weekend, we moved me entirely out of my apartment.  Some of my stuff went to my cousin's condo where I will be renting a room from him for a bit.  The rest of my stuff went to Adam's place so that it can go on and be moved to Indy with him by the movers.

This weekend we go to Indy to find a place to live, and next weekend we go to Indy to unpack everything when the movers get it there.

To say I'm exhausted right now is an understatement, but it's definitely all very exciting.

I won't move up there for a few months, and we'll be doing the long distance thing for a bit.  I'm excited for him that he has found a great job, even though it's hard on both of us to be leaving Nashville.  However, he should be able to transfer to the company's Nashville office after 2 years, give or take, so that helps!

In the meantime, we have gotten some wedding planning done.  I'm determined to not be "all wedding all the time" on here, but it is sort of a big deal right now.

We have decided to get married on August 9th at a really cool old wool mill that has been converted into event space.  It's going to be really pretty - lots of Italian white string lights, brick walls and old, wooden doors.

I attended a bridal fair this weekend (which was surprisingly fun), and we think we found our photographer.  We also intend to talk to a couple of videographers and djs I met there and decide on both of those things.

So stuff is coming along!

Once we get him moved next week, it's time for me to get my butt in gear.  I've gained about 10 pounds without realizing it until I managed to realize it.  I think it's a sign that I am 100% truly happy these days, but it also makes me unhappy to be a bit pudgy and soft in my middle.  So I'll be getting myself running (and training for the two half marathons I'm running for fun in March with my job) and doing Insanity regularly so I can trim up.

And then stay trimmed up... homegirl wants to look great in her wedding gown!

Big changes! Yay! My husband has been to Indy a few times over the past couple of years + he's found some tasty restaurants (some featured on Food Network), so at least there's some good food in your future! And basketball. And snow. Woo hoo!
