Hot air balloon ride

In the last post I had said that my boyfriend Jared and I were planning on going on a hot air balloon ride.  We unfortunately were unable to go due to strong winds.  And he no longer is my boyfriend.  He's my FIANCE!!!!  Jared had planned to ask me to marry him at the picnic that would have followed the hot air balloon ride.  He was afraid that our rescheduled date would have been cancelled too.  Which ended up happening.

A few days before he had asked my mom for my hand in marriage, which was so sweet of him.  When I called her to let her know the flight had been cancelled she frantically called Jared once we hung up asking what he was going to do now!?!?

So we went out to see the movie "Life as we know it."  It ended up being a good movie.  As we were walking to the car he had said how beautiful of a night it was.  Once we got in the car he asked to see my hands and I jokingly said to him that he only needed one hand.  I let him hold my left hand and I looked out the window.  At the same time he was moving around a lot trying to get something out of his pocket.  He said a lot of sweet things...and asked me to marry him.  Of course I said yes after I said are you kidding me?? over and over with tears falling from my eyes.

Even though we were unable to go on a beautiful hot air balloon ride --It was still a perfect day.  Someday we will go when the weather cooperates.  We are planning on getting married in October 2012!

No fast for one month!!

The first task that I started for my day zero project was no fast food for one month!  Today marks the end of this task.  I also have stayed away from soda during the time I choose to stop eating greasy unhealthy food!  This decision has helped me lose 12 lbs!!!  I feel so much better, I have more energy and I am so close to finishing lucky #13 on my list which is to lose 20lbs! 

I am going to keep fast food out of my diet as I can continue to make smart choices when it comes to my health.

Upcoming tasks
#18 I have purchased a bike now I just need to see where the road takes me!
#8 October 18th Jared and I are going for a hot air balloon ride!

Zumba fitness

Lauren, Danielle M and Danielle T joined me at a Zumba class on 9/24.  It was a lot of fun but also a whole lot of work.  We were at a bit of a disadvantage seeing as everyone else in the class already knew all the moves.  I was at an even bigger disadvantage since I am not coordinated whatsoever.  There was so much movement going on with the arms, legs and hips that I found myself only doing the arm movements and slacking on the foot work or vise-versa.  It was a great workout and I hope to attend another class at the same place or at the gym Jared and I will be joining soon!


On Wednesday September 29, 2010 I sent out 5 postcards to addresses that I received from  Today I actually received a confirmation that the postcard traveling 8978 miles had reached it's destination in New Zealand.  The other postcards are heading to Hong Kong, Taiwan, Germany and Austria.  Since Janette (hey there!) has registered my postcard I will be able to start receiving postcards from people all around the world. 

Eventhough my 101 list shows that I only wanted to send one postcard I decided to send all five that I am allowed to at one time.  Everytime someone registers that they received a postcard that I sent I can send another one out and my address will also be given to someone so they can send me one.  So my next one will be going to Carla in Alabama.  Who doesn't like getting mail?
