I think for the most part I've been doing a good job of not letting it take over my life. I actually want to enjoy the process and savor every minute.
I have to admit though the next few weeks feel a bit more hectic because I want to nail down the venue. The date we have in mind means that the venue has to be nailed down relatively soon so we don't miss out. I did feel more relaxed after Saturday though when we placed an unofficial hold on one venue after seeing two. We have a few more venues to look at before we make our final decision but it's good to know we have a really feasible option that we both love.
After seeing wedding venues Saturday morning, we had to rush to community service. We hadn't eaten for about 5 hours so all of us were hungry.
I had originally planned to eat lunch at two places before going to community service but driving to two places both resulted in seeing massive lines. Those were a no-go and since we needed to be at our service in less than 25 minutes, we ended up eating fast food.
I ate a "chicken sandwich" - I say that term loosely because it tasted like frozen, overly-processed crap. It was tough to swallow but I ate my sandwich and had four fries. We all had drinks with our meals but I have to say none of us had much of it. I swear I took 4 sips of my medium soda and tossed the rest away. Only in the US would a medium soda look like the monster-sized offered in Asia.
Whatever the case, we were at our service on time! We were volunteering at our local food bank and helping them sort their donations for 3 hours. It was a productive way to give back and it was a workout too - carrying boxes, lifting boxes, extending arms to put things in different packets....etc.
After service, we went grocery shopping and then went home for dinner. I made dinner in record time because we had leftovers. All I had to do was put away groceries and steam broccoli.
Delicious and just what I needed after a not-so-pleasant lunch.
Fast food lunch ended up being about $28 for the three of us. I can easily make a healthy and delicious meal for us with half the amount of that.
Let's hope we never have to compromise quality and taste for time again.
When's the last time you had fast food? Was it any good?
We have Subway from time to time especially right after we get back from a trip. It's an easy and healthier go-to! Then again, I recently saw the article about US Subways putting a chemical in their breads that's found in yoga mats (Time.com: Subway Bread is About to Change in a Drastic Way) but announcing recently that they will be removing that chemical.
This week is a new week and I plan on going out for a few runs this week. The weather looks great for that.
Recently, I've picked up Pinterest again browsing things here and there but nothing really pinned yet. I plan on making new folders for wedding related stuff. Everything prior to this point was pinned several months ago (maybe even a year) so it was just pretty that caught my eye.
One thing that caught my eye yesterday was this...
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Let's all kick butt this week :)
