Why Brides Lose Weight

I always heard people say "Oh, all brides lose weight before the wedding, they just are too busy to eat!"
I thought, "Pish posh."

Nobody could ever be too busy to forget a meal.

Today I have had the following:
  • 1 cup coffee with sweetener and fat free half & half
  • 3 Chick-fil-A chicken strips
  • 1 Chick-fil-A diet lemonade
  • 1 glass white wine
  • 1 glass red wine
I wish I were exaggerating.  I know it's not enough food.  And nutritionally, it's severely lacking -- the food pyramid would shudder.

Here is what I got done today:
  • Had a security system installed (au revoir, burglars!)
  • Unpacked 4 moving boxes and broke down boxes
  • Online banking
  • Got together clothes for consignment shop
  • Helped Ian organize garage
  • Took out trash
  • Had a 2 1/2 hour hair appointment
  • Spent too much time in the drive-thru of Chick-fil-A
  • Picked up dry cleaning
  • Picked up a girlfriend and went to a neighboring town for a boutique's tent sale
  • Purchased a cute-ass dress
  • Went antique shopping with said girlfriend
  • Had a glass of white wine in a store with said girlfriend
  • Shopping at my archnemesis, Wal-Mart
  • Washed and folded 3 loads laundry
  • Swiffered and vaccuumed house
  • Cleaned 2 bathrooms
  • Washed sheets & remade bed
  • Spent QT with the dog
  • Organized my yards of fabric
  • Had menu cards & programs printed (debacle; good ending -- story to come)
  • Poured glass of red wine
Alas, it's time for bed.


  1. I'm exhausted reading this! Can I get some of your energy?

  2. Wow! In ONE day? I would have needed more than one cup of coffee : )

  3. Wow--you are busy! I splurged at Chick-fil-A this week..only instead of lemonade, I upgraded to one of their YUMMY milkshakes!

  4. Girl you had a productive day!

    What consignment shop do you take your things to?

  5. I thought the same thing before I got married and what do you know? I lost 7 pounds! Apparently, you CAN be too busy to eat. Good luck in these last few days!

  6. You are a busy woman! Good luck with everything.

  7. Wow! You are the Queen of Productivity!

  8. So I read this post a year ago, and I thought pish posh is right! Then a few weeks before my wedding (on 5/12) I was living it! I still crack up!!
