Crazy week!

What a crazy week!  

1st - Yesterday it snowed in ATX!  We actually received 2-4 inches in some places.  Not so sure Sarah really liked it, but I did enjoy making a snowman and trying to hit Malek with some snowballs.  :-)

2nd - My brothers wedding is this Saturday!  I can't believe it, my baby bro is getting married.  It's such a big year for the Freunds....with my wedding following 1 month later!  
3rd - My friend Tammy's wedding is this Sunday!  We'll be running around like crazy.  Hopefully our flights aren't delayed coming home on Sun.

Boot Camp was cancelled (#28)

So I just realized I never blogged about boot camp being cancelled.  pfft

Malek and I enjoyed the classes...but the instructor was a flake.  He missed several classes (actually slept thru one), cancelled one when only Malek and I showed up, and cancelled another one by sending an email at 2am!  For a 6am class most of us weren't on email that early.  He told us he would give us a free 1:1 at his gym that weekend when he cancelled on just Malek and me...but then we never heard from him, we tried calling, txting and emailing him and he never responded.  His customer service is/was HORRIBLE!  Needless to say, I wasn't surprised when he cancelled it for the rest of Feb (we started in Dec and it was supposed to go thru the end of Feb).  We managed to have 12 classes in that 2.5 month time frame...

To replace boot camp, Malek and I have started Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred!  We've completed 7 days so far of level 1 and are loving it!  We'll move to Level 2 this weekend. 8)

Painting with a Twist!

#105 - Take a photography class....Changing this to a painting class!  Both are creative and artsy...so I think it works.  :-)

Groupon a few weeks ago came out with a nice discount for Painting with a Twist, so the girls decided to turn it into a GNO!  Perfect!  Painting with a Twist allows you to bring in wine and snacks while you take a 3 hour painting class.  We had a ball, I would totally do this again.  After our Midnight Mass class we all headed to Chili's for a few drinks.  I didn't make it home untill after 1am!  Great night out. :-D

Honeymoon in Mazatlan!

Where is Mazatlan you might ask?  Good question, I had no clue when Malek first mentioned it, in Mexico!  We will be spending 5 nights at the all-inclusive Hotel Riu Emerald Bay.  Bring on the beach, sun and drinks!  I fully plan on taking advantage of the swim up bar.  ;-)  We will leave Monday after the wedding and return Saturday evening.  During our stay we also plan on taking a Tequila tour (traveling to various tequila plants and sipping on different tequila) and an island tour (sail to an island for lunch and fun on the beach).  I did notice some info on cliff diving...do I dare?

Home Sweet Home

As we get ready to put my house on the market, I can’t help but feel a little sad.  I LOVE my house.  It is representative of so many things to me; a new life, new adventures, independence….a place to call my own.  And I know we will find a larger home that I am sure I will love just as much…but this house will forever be special to me.  It is my first!  I love the location, the colors, the layout, the hot tub!  I remember one evening when I called my mom as I soaked in the hot tub and looked up at the stars and thought “this is wonderful, I am happy, look what I have achieved!”  So many great memories; all the parties and nights in with friends, watching fireworks from the back yard, cuddling on the couch with Sarah (and Guinness too), the 1st Christmas at my new place, letting Malek into my world….And of course many more adventures and memories to come as I begin a new journey with my new family in a new larger home.  It’s funny, as I’m writing this it brings a tear to my eye (many tears actually).  I never realized how much this home meant to me, and how important it was for me to share it with family and friends.  I will miss you my beloved home.  A new chapter in my life is about to start.

Picked up the rings!

Yesterday, Malek and I picked up our wedding bands from the jewelers.  They look awesome!  I'm so excited, can't wait to wear mine.  Hard to believe we are only 50 days away from becoming husband and wife!
