Thinking … that weddings are expensive. In my head, I never imagined that a wedding would seriously cost as much as it actually does. Don’t get me wrong. I have watched my fair share of wedding reality shows on TLC and WETV but I always thought that those weddings were at the high of the average cost. I didn’t realize that some of those budgets meant that the weddings were actually considered budget weddings. Pete and I will be scrimping and saving as much as possible over the next two years!
Feeling … overwhelmed! The two projects that I have been working on endlessly at the office are literally due within a two week period this month. At one point, I felt like I was ahead of the game on one of the projects but apparently I wasn’t. I have been focusing my efforts on the other project and now I have a pile of stuff to finish up on the first project. I can’t wait until November!
Watching … all of my favorite TV shows! One of the things that I love about fall is that all of my favorite TV shows start up again. Our DVR is getting quite full because I have been getting home from work so late over the last two weeks. One of my new favorite shows is Forever on ABC.
Excited … about the start of the International Food and Wine Festival at Epcot. It is seriously one of my favorites annual events. Every year there is delicious food to sample and tasty beverages to go along with the food. Pete and I have joked that we would like to have some of our favorite dishes served during our reception. Of course, that would require us to get married at Disney. I actually spent a little bit of time at Epcot last weekend with my mom and sister but the rain didn’t really let us try as much as we would have liked. The start of the Food and Wine Festival also means that the Wine and Dine Half Marathon is coming up. Woohoo!
Missing … my regular workout routine. My work schedule lately has really hurt my marathon training. I know that is an excuse but working 10 or 11 hours a day is not conducive to getting to the gym. I can’t seem to get back into my groove.
Reading … nothing.
Wondering … where this year has gone. How in the world is it October already?!? I
Working … on a custom theme for our wedding website in all of my spare time. We already our site up and running but I am not a huge fan of the theme. I have found several other themes that I like but they just don’t have exactly what I want in terms of the look and feel. So I have taken it upon myself (with the help of my dad) to develop a custom theme. The process is a lot slower than I would like it to be but my goal completion date is still two months away.
Stressed … about the marathon I am running … next month! As I already mentioned, I have been a workaholic lately and my training has suffered. I really wanted the Space Coast marathon to be my big race for this year but I just don’t know if I will be able to pull it off. I know that I will finish the race but I am really worried that I won’t
Proud … of the model I have created at work. I wasn’t exactly sure that I would be able to pull it off but somehow I have done it. I don’t think that anyone in the office thought that I would be able to get the new modeling software to work correctly but I have done it. I have created a 3D model of an interchange. It isn’t finished but it is still pretty darn cool.
Wanting … more hours in the day. Enough said!
Wishing … there was a treadmill in the office. There have been quite a few days over the last few weeks that I really, really, really needed to go for a run but was stuck at the office getting something done. I would love to have the ability to take a mid afternoon break and but out a run every now and then.
Eating … everything pumpkin (or squash) related! I LOVE this time of year because it means that there is an abundance of pumpkin everywhere. I simply cannot get enough pumpkin in my life right now. I am even considering making pumpkin pancakes or waffles for breakfast this weekend. Yum!
Drinking … copious amounts of coffee. My caffeine intake has seen a definite increase in the last few weeks. I am not quite sure that if that is a good thing or a bad thing. I will say that my water consumption has suffered because of it. One of my many goals for the month of October is to get better about drinking more water on a daily basis.
Loving … my fiancé! I never imagined that I could love someone in this world as much as I love him. He is seriously amazing. I don’t think that I would be the person that I have become without him in my life. Oh and he is actually letting me entertain the idea of having a Disney wedding. What?!?
What are you currently thinking, wanting, loving right now?
