As you may have gathered from past posts, I love weddings. I should probably look into being a wedding planner since I am so fascinated by them. For now I’ll just stick with watching Say Yes to the Dress marathons.

Below are pictures from some recent weddings, and the many different ways these celebs celebrated. It’s amazing how a white dress can take so many different shapes…

In other exciting wedding news…Jcrew Wedding Boutique (Celebrity Wedding Blog) is now open! I am a huge jcrew fan, and always have liked their bridal line, so having an actual boutique is very exciting.

Nike BOOM July 27, 2010

A few months ago, I registered to run in the Nike Women’s Half Marathon with my sister in October. A few months ago, I decided to start training. A few months have gone by… and that hasn’t happened.

I have worked out a bit, but nothing near what I should be doing to train. I have been an athlete my whole life, and am a competitive person, so I want to run the half marathon well, aka not just finish (I’m saving that for a full marathon). Even though swimming and rowing taught me how to train, pace, keep my body healthy, and push through immense pain, I never had to do the training on my own. And that is quite a challenge.

Ever since I graduated, it has been hard to get myself to work out. My first challenge was signing up for a gym. I had been spoiled with facilities to work out in and was reluctant to pay for it. Eventually, I wised up and joined 24 hour fitness, which was a great way to keep me in decent shape through the months of Portland rain.

Even though I had the gym membership, I had no one making me go there, no goal to reach for or teammates to one-up…I mean keep me motivated… 😛 . The half marathon looming in the back of my mind the past couple months has gotten me to work out a bit. But now…less than 3 months away I really need  to kick it up a notch.

The past 2 weeks I have ran around 3 miles on a regular basis. But today, I ran 5. (holler.) This was greatly in thanks to Nike’s new ipod app: Nike BOOM.

This is an app that has athletes and coaches giving short motivational talks to you throughout your workout. They did a great job in the details of this app. For example: if you press pause or say you want to leave the app in the middle of the work out you get a “do you really want to quit?” message on the screen that, frankly, made me feel bad enough to push longer than originally planned (and I was only pausing to stretch!).

I realize the person talking to me is not actually holding me accountable for anything in my workout, or ever going to know that I have the app…but those few messages throughout the work out are all a sport loving, competitive, wants to stay healthy, but has to work out on their own, person needs to get that extra little kick in the booty. Well. It works for me!

BOOM baby.

What gets you going to work out harder, or just work out in general? I’ve got: Nike Boom, cute outfits, and knowing I should.

My Favorites: Actresses July 19, 2010

I have never been someone who has favorites. I like a lot of things and can never narrow it down to just one, it’s too much pressure! So I am starting a new recurring post called My Favorites. This week I am going to post on actresses that I love. Comment at the end of this post with other topics I should post favorites on!

Jennifer Aniston: poised, hilarious, gorgeous, healthy, and confident. My love for Friends has deceived me into thinking she is actually one of my friends.

Ellen Degeneres: hilarious, giving, accepting of everyone, and always brightens my day with her dance moves.

Katherine Heigl: A natural beauty who seems down to earth and incredibly friendly. I started liking her back in Wish Upon a Star on Disney channel.

Blake Lively- she’s got great style, always seems to be having fun, and could even be completely goofy on SNL…and I want her hair.

So pretty much I like actresses that are: funny, pretty, friendly, talented, and confident. And apparently blonde.

What favorites post should be next?

This weeks Here’s to you… goes to Skinni dip. This fine establishment is not only delicious, it’s healthier than ice cream! Skinnidip is the place that got me through that 100 degree weather we had a week ago. Not the cheapest place in the world, but they make up for it with the tons of fresh toppings to choose from and huuuge portions. My favorite is original frozen yogurt with strawberries and white chocolate chips (or sprinkles if I need some more color in my life). I’ll find any excuse to go there and recommend you take a trip there this summer, and every other season to come…

YUM
