Sorry I haven't posted anything new lately. Things have been crazy between school and work. But now I have to get back on the band wagon and shed some weight because......
Thomas proposed at the Grafton Winery in Grafton, Illinois, on Saturday, October 27, 2012. He even bought me the dress, necklace, and nail polish I was wearing! We were surrounded by my parents, my younger sister, Thomas' dad, and his dad's girlfriend as he dropped down to one knee and asked me to be his wife! I can't wait to get married to my best friend! After the proposal, we enjoyed a nice meal accompanied by strawberry and apple crisp wine with our family. It was definitely a night I will remember for the rest of my life!
With that being said, I have kind of had a falling out with my diet plan! Anyone who has ever been overweight knows that you usually stay away from white when buying clothing and anyone who has been wedding gown shopping knows that most salons only have sizes 6 and 8, maybe a 10 if you're lucky, and the larger the dress, the more the price increases! I DO NOT WANT TO BE A "FAT" BRIDE!!!!!! I already have a dress that I have fallen in love with (I won't picture it here because Thomas reads my blog from time to time), but it is pretty form fitting and I really do not want to sacrifice the look I want just because of my body type. Therefore, I am formulating a new fitness plan coming soon. I will post the details as soon as I finish my plan.
In the mean time, I have started a blog about our wedding entitled Soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Flannery Wedding Blog. You can keep up with all of our wedding plans, get wedding ideas of your own, and see pictures of our journey to the alter at thomasandmarybethswedding.blogspot.com.
