Wow, how is it Friday already?

This week (obviously) flew by for me, which is weird considering it is the first week back from Spring Break. But, really, this entire year has flown by for me and I am in awe that my first year of teaching is almost over. It is just so surreal!

Anyway. It's Friday and I have a weekend of nothing planned, except yes, I do have things planned! Do you know those weekends where "nothing" is really "planned" but it still ends up being a full weekend? Yep, it will be one of those. Tomorrow night my group of friends are awakening our weekly Friday happy hours and meeting at The OP in West Des Moines for some friend time, beers and the Iowa State game! My team made the Sweet 16 and I am hoping they kick butt tomorrow! They play UConn ... so, my fingers are crossed and I'm thinking positive thoughts! Go State!

On Saturday I have my regular Zumba class in the morning and then a Zumbathon that I would like to attend in Ankeny ... that is three hours of Zumba. Wonder how many steps that will be!? #stepobsessed #ILoveMyFitBit

Saturday night we usually go to church. Which, I love! Next week starts pre-marital classes at our church. Like a nerd, I'm looking forward to it. ;)

Sunday, I am hopefully going to get in a long run and then I know there was something else, but I am blanking. This isn't good. Gah. Hopefully it isn't something important!! I will probably get some grading done (I didn't get as much done over SB and this stuff multiplies faster than flies. I swear.)

Maybe Sunday we'll figure out more wedding invitation information. I need to get them ordered, but we haven't decided who will be invited to the ceremony AND reception and who will just be invited to the reception. I hate the thought of having to choose and I'm hoping we can invite everyone to both, but we really need to sit and figure it out FOR SURE. Planning a distance wedding is harder than I thought!

What are your plans this weekend? Anything fun?

Good luck with the invitation project. Hopefully you will have space at both venues to invite everyone as that would make it less complicated to put the invitations together! I can see how planning a distance wedding is tough, though, especially if you are doing it on your own and don't have a planner to help with it all.

I am heading to Savannah this weekend which I am really excited about. I have heard that it's such a cute, charming city. The forecast is rainy, though, which sucks. :/ But I will make the most of it! Enjoy your weekend and dang - props to you for doing a 3 hour zumba class! I can't even imagine!

Planning a wedding is so tough- ours was technically distance too but either way, I just hate wedding planning haha. I think people will understand if you can't invite them to both parts :)

I can't believe you are going to do three hours of Zumba, yikes! I really want to know how many steps that will be!

I'm actually a little disappointed we didn't have to go to premarital counseling. So you're definitely not alone on getting excited for it. It's not that I think our marriage needed it, but more that I think it could have been fun! Ha!

That's a lot of zumba! I am curious to hear how many steps you had and whether or not you were sore! I would have been!

Hope you had a great weekend and got everything done that you wanted to get done! Deciding who to have on your invite list is probably;y the HARDEST part of wedding planning.

I'm sure you'll get it all figured out!
