Sloooow Saturdays =)

Today is Saturday, which means I have the morning all to myself.  I love my fiancee more than anything, but my mornings alone are the best.  I sleep in, and take things slow.  I love not having to get ready for work, or get ready for anything for that matter.

So far, 2 loads of laundry are done, and 2 more are on their way.  I organized all the groceries we bought last night, and cleaned up the house.  I swiffered the kitchen and dining room floors and vacuuming is next.  All there is left to do now is go to Zumba class, get my caterpillar eyebrows waxed finalllly, and then start packing!

Scott and I are taking a very very mini overnight vacation to my parents house while they are away.  It's weird how excited we are.  But, it's nice to get away for a night and relax.  We might go out to dinner tomorrow night after my Sunday weigh-in.  The Cheesecake Factory just opened up in my parent's area and we haven't been since my birthday in August.  We love it there, and they have weight-friendly meals so that I can save my points for the cheesecake!

I will also be shopping for some professional clothing for my upcoming semester of student teaching, so I can finally graduate with my second degree and finally be a full time elementary education teacher!!  I start on January 23rd.  I am beyond excited, but also very nervous.  I'm also nervous to shop for clothes, because I know I'm not the size that I once was when I first lost the weight.  I don't know, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.  Who knows.

I've been taking a Zumba class, and I have been doing it for 2 weeks now.  I love it!  It's exhilarating and fun and, when I'm not able to go to class, I throw in the Zumba game for Wii that I got for Christmas and play.  I have so much energy, and I sleep better at night.  My muscles are tighter, and I just feel lighter.  It's an awesome feeling.  Once I got past the initial embarrassment of not knowing what the heck I was doing, the class was so much fun.  =)

In wedding news, Scott and I are going to church this Sunday. It's awesome to go to church and think that in just a few short months, we will be getting married there.  We have an appointment to meet with the minister on Tuesday.  He wants to meet with us 3 times, to get to know us and create a wedding ceremony that is specifically designed for us.  I'm nervous and excited.  More on that later!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  Enjoy it! Because, before you know it, it's Monday morning!

Keep Smiling,

Karla =)
