Epic Success

I’m still in total disbelief that I actually managed to wake-up at 5:30 AM, so that Galina and I could get running at 6:30 AM.  I’m more surprised that our run went so well.   11.8 miles later, I’m not gonna lie, I kind of feel like a champion.

Wedding dress shopping was an epic success.  It took two hours at David’s Bridal, despite the fact that The Dress was the second one I tried on.  But since you only do it once, why not go big, right?

You had better believe that we took pictures of every single one, so I’ll post them (except for The Dress) as soon as Linds e-mails them to me.

Epic success is also defined as making it to Sweet Retreat by 2-ish.  At which point, I tucked into a Peanut Butter Cup cupcake.

Yes, this is the photo I snapped on the cupcake crawl.

I also brought home a little sampler of mini-cupcakes.

For a size-comparison, the mini-cupcake packaging is the same as the regular single-sized cupcake carrier, it’s just turned upside-down.

In the sampler, I had a Peanut Butter Cup, two Kevin’s Vanilla Princess (I just went with what they had, you know?) and a Coo Coo for Coconut (which was surprisingly delicious).

This may look suspiciously like a cupcake binge to you, but the way I see it, the cupcake I ate post-dress shopping was part of the dress shopping experience.  The mini-cupcakes I brought home?  Recovery food from my run.

You had better believe that I’m ordering a box of them to have waiting at the finish line.

Really, the most incredible part of today is that it’s only Saturday.

  1. I DO NOT believe that you found THE DRESS at DAVIDS BRIDAL and it was the SECOND ONE. I require more information!!

  2. Yay on both ends, but you were the total rock star on that run, 11.88 miles in and I think you were ready to do another 11.88, I on the other hand was ready to curl up in a fetal position.

    Congrats on the dress!

  3. Congrats on finding your wedding dress! I agree Sweet Retreat has the best cupcakes. I still want to try the Red Velvet one.
