Its Been Awhile

So clearly from the lack of posts I have been busier than ever these days. Tonight I finished up my first semester of grad school. Woo hoo!! I think that I did pretty good in both of my classes. I have a week off then I will start my summer class, but at least that is only until mid-June.

Although Ryan and I have both been pretty busy we have done a few fun things the past month or so. We just got back from Gulf Shores for my friend Courtney's wedding. The wedding was so beautiful on the beach and Courtney was gorgeous. I plan to post pics pretty soon on Myspace so if you have an account you can check them out.

On Friday morning we leave for Cincinnati for Ryan's brother Matt's wedding. This wedding has been two years in the making so I bet is going to be pretty fun. At the end of May is my 5 year high school reunion. I hope I get to see some of the people that I never get to see anymore.

I am still working to get back to my "ideal" weight. This is a challenge I started back in November, I am doing really well. I have been losing all the weight by dieting alone, but last week I started doing Pilates. I wanted to do something that would tone, but not really give me huge muscles. :) I was surprised how sore I was after the first few workouts. For such simple movements it really works those muscles! I now am 4 pounds from my goal weight. It is exciting because my clothes are fitting so much better. I was thrilled when I went dress shopping for the wedding this weekend and I bought a size 2. I could not help from grin from ear to ear when I had to go down two sizes than what I thought. I am not sure if it was just the brand, but it definitely was a good surprise. I plan to keep on working hard to get to my goal by the end of June. I suspect those last few pounds will be the hardest to lose.

Well it my bedtime so I better end this. Goodnight!
