90 Day Review and WEDDING DRESS TIME

Well aren't I just the best little blogger this week? I'm on a ROLL. Which means there is a lot going on, which means I am probably anxious and writing to help me calm down and process things.

Go me for using healthy coping skills!

First, I had my 90 day review at work yesterday. My supervisor came to the school and spent FOUR HOURS analyzing my charts, logs, paperwork, and completing my evaluation. Results are in: I passed with flying colors. I have barely been sleeping in anticipation of this review, but she said I am doing better than average, which is great, but especially great for someone so new. I guess I am just really, really hard on myself. I knew this. I am the child who insisted on bringing a week's worth of work on my family vacation to Disney in third grade because I was so scared about missing school and falling behind in class.

I need to chill.

Second, I got a call today from Ghislaine at Angel Bridal in Haddonfield, NJ. Ghislaine is basically the best and most attentive bridal boutique owner ever. She was so helpful when I was trying on dresses and has made every effort to help my bridesmaids and I with dress issues, even from 1,000+ miles away. We were able to order all of the bridesmaid dresses there, for lower prices, and she will ship them to my bridesmaids all over the East Coast. She also told me she would work with me to get me in for fittings whenever I visit NJ this summer, even if she needs to open on a day off or come in early. She said I could get the dress fitted in Florida if I wanted to, and she would press it for me before the wedding when I bring it back to NJ.

I highly recommend Angel Bridal if you are looking for a wedding dress in the Philadelphia area.

Anyway, she called me today to let me know that my dress came in early! So it will be ready and waiting for me when I go to NJ in March. I set up an appointment for early that Saturday morning, which worked out great, because the seamstress will be there.

This is both incredibly exciting and terrifying. If you are a female, you may understand why this is so terrifying.

That being said...

I am signing up for the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon! It takes place in early November, but registration is March 4th, I believe. I got in to great shape training for the half marathon I ran last April. Yes, I know the wedding is 2 months before the race, and I know some people start training for a half marathon 8 weeks out... so technically I could start training AFTER my wedding. But no, because I am pathetic and need like 6 months of training. I have been active, but I have not been running often, and I have not been making the healthiest choices. Registering for this race will do two things: give me something big and fun to look forward to when the wedding is over, and force me to get back in to the running groove and make healthier choices.

But don't think for one second I will give up day-drinking on the beach and boat or happy hour at Guanabana's. I do live in paradise, after all ;)
