Hello friends and happy Monday! I’m just checking in quickly today because I still have a ton of work to do (that will probably taper off this week so I’ll be back later in the week with all the posts I’ve wanted to do but haven’t because of time). First things first, though. I was offered an amazing opportunity to be the first “Bride Blogger” on the Charlottesville Wedding Blog. Today was my first post just introducing the FI and me, but I’ll be posting every month sharing my experiences with wedding planning. You can check it out here 🙂
This past weekend in NYC was such a blast, I never wanted it to end!
On Saturday, I went wedding dress shopping with my twin sis at Kleinfelds and Monique Lhuillier. We went together a month ago for her but this time it was for me! 🙂 Oh gosh let me tell you, it was the best day ever. Just trying on gorgeous gown after gown and feeling like a princess. I thought they were all beautiful. I may or may not have fallen most in love with an absolutely gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown. It’s kind of a budget buster but it might just have to happen. More on wedding dress shopping another time though…
Because this also happened this weekend…
As usual, I’ll wait to do my full recap until the pictures come in. But here are some pics that the FI took at the starting and finishing line. It was COLD…32 degrees with a 14 mph wind. I swear I couldn’t feel my feet for the first 3 miles though Central Park. But other than that, it was just plain fun.
Central Park was a bit hilly (a bit…nothing like crazy) so I didn’t have a 1:40 finish this time around, but I finished under 2 hours and had so much fun. I can’t wait to show you guys the pics of me running through Times Square. That was pretty incredible. Oh, you know how much I love a good big city race (although nothing will ever touch the Chicago Marathon, not even when I ran Boston).
So basically the weekend consisted of all of my favorite things: shopping for beautiful dresses and running. Does it get any better? I think not.
I know there were a ton of other races out there this past weekend…RnR in D.C., Shamrock in VA Beach, and the Cville 10 Miler just to name a few. I can’t believe it’s been a year since the FI (then BF) and I ran the Irish Spring 10k and partied for St. Patty’s in D.C.
If you ran this past weekend, how did it go?
Did you celebrate St. Patty’s Day?
