Kevin and I are heading to St. Louis this weekend and its not just for the Jack in the Box tacos.
We’re having our food tasting Friday night, meeting with florists on Saturday, showing my parents the inside of the church on Sunday and hopefully picking out a few hotels to get blocks of rooms for our guests (because we’re all about a good deal).
I’m pumped to get more things crossed off our list and begin working on crafts and planning the little details. And registering!

Brides, anything specific you are working on this month?
Wives, any tips/advice/insight that you found helpful along the way?
Now, this is completely way off topic, but I found this article today and thought it was incredibly interesting.
3 Character Traits: Hardworking, responsible, calm (yes, yes, no)
Your Personality: When everyone else is panicking, you keep it cool. You’re responsible, hardworking, detail oriented and extremely organized. But you also have a classic “type A” personality—stressed and conscientious, craving success and perfection. You’re the most artistic of the blood types (and even a bit sensitive). (Organized? Type A? Capital A for Absolutely true. Artistic? I’d say creative. Sensitive? Holy yes.)
Your Diet: When hunter-gatherer Os started thinning out, our ancestors started relying on agriculture and expanding their diet to include a semi-vegetarian approach. Type As have the digestive enzymes and bacteria it takes to digest grains and plants that other blood types might have a rough time breaking down.What to Eat: Fill your plate with fruits like berries, figs, plums, apples, avocados, pears and peaches. Choose veggies like broccoli, artichokes, carrots, greens and garlic. Fish and poultry should be limited since type As produce fewer meat-digesting enzymes, which is why they have such a hard time digesting red meat. To get protein, rely on plant protein from nuts (like nut butters), seeds, beans and soy. Since your body can easily break down and get optimal nutrition from grains, carbs and proteins, cereal, breads and pastas should be staples of your diet. (Give. me. more. bread.) What to Avoid: To balance cortisol levels (you may have high levels, which can lead to OCD, disrupted sleep, muscle loss, fat gain and insulin resistance) limit sugar, caffeine and alcohol and don’t skip meals, especially breakfast. Stressful elements like extreme weather conditions, loud noise, overwork and violent TV and movies should also be avoided. (I don’t love sweets, so that’s good, but I can’t survive without coffee and booze. Maybe this is also why I hate scary movies. And it looks like I should avoid extreme weather though…watch out, Kev.)
Dinner Tonight: Tofu-pesto lasagna, broccoli and frozen yogurt. (Yuck, tofu. Can I just eat froyo?)Your Workout: Since you stress easily, try something calming like yoga. (I can’t even touch my toes…) Happy-it’s-Wednesday-but-almost-Thursday-which-means-it’s-almost-Friday Day!
