I did things today; here is what I did:
- Dress shopping - all together: eeeeeeeeeeeeee! Miss Jen dragged herself away from sickness to share in the preview of ME in my first ever WEDDING DRESS. How bizarrely surreal. I tried on about 10 and most were absolutely awesome. Tell me, how could one not look good in a $4k dress? I'm still trying to digest what happened in there so I apologize for the random, broken thoughts... First, the saleswoman has now seen my boobs more than my fiance. She had to "put me" in each dress. Gross. But I went with the flow because I don't think I have much choice. LOTS OF MIRRORS. Every angle. Man am I glad that I've been working out a lot because it could have been much worse. I found a couple of styles that worked, but none that I was totally thrilled with. Plus, the experience just didn't feel very "me." I don't want to feel like I'm wearing something totally out of the ordinary, to me it feels like playing dress up. I don't want a costume or a uniform. I love the whole shazam quality of wedding garb, but for me it just isn't working. We left, Jen departed and hopefully she's at home sleeping right now, but last I heard she may have been drinking off the cold. Atta girl. I went on to another tiny boutique whose owner I've been in email contact with. I had no appointment, but the store was empty and she was happy to show me the ropes. Totally creative woman, and her vision/mission was so much more me - complete 180 from the last store. Great selection and if you don't see what you like she'll design one for you. I tried on a couple and think I may have found the dress. AWESOME. More to come.
- Was sore from swimming - but only in a a teeny tiny spot, the posterior deltoid. I'm just glad it isn't worse. I can't wait to get back into the scummy 24 Hour Fitness pool.
- Bikram - yes, I went and yes it was hot. And sweaty and smelly. I stood next to "the cute guy" but who cares cause I'm about to get hitched. Even if I was single I would have been completely grossed out by the end of class as he blew his nose into his towel most of class. No. No. Do not do that.
More non-training related personal sidenotes (this is unfortunately becoming more of a theme with me which I had never really intended on doing when I started this):
Why does everyone on HGTV need to sip a mug of coffee while deciding which house to buy? I applied for "Property Virgins" online the other night and only hope to god I'm not contacted. I may have been slightly inebriated at the time.
I mentioned that I'm sick of my job. What if I started my own business? How cool (um, hot) would it be to own a bikram studio, or some other type of yoga studio? Or what about a stuff shop that sells all the crap I love to buy? Has anyone reading this started their own business or have suggestions? Hello, is there anyone out there?
