2017 New Year Resolution

Wow… looking back, my last post was June 23, 2016. That’s it. My new year’s resolution for 2017 is to keep up with my blog posts. I know, I know… you’re thinking, “yeah I’ve heard that before” but this time I will! Or at least try to for the next 6 months lol. What can I say? Life happens.

After going back to work full time last summer, I made it a goal to lose my baby weight. Most of my baby mommy friends out there know what I mean and you also know how hard it is after. Especially after the first and/or second etc. Plus age, it gets even harder. However I am happy to announce that I have reached my first goal weight back in November 2016.
Hubby took me to Maui for my birthday in November and I made it a goal to get to my first goal weight of 135lbs. My next goal weight was to reach 130lbs by mid-January 2017… that unfortunately is not going to happen.
I live in Vancouver and this year Mother Nature decided to teach us a lesson in what a REAL winter is like. We’re still dealing with all the snow lol. As such, I have missed a lot of gym sessions because I have to go in the mornings before work. And somehow waking up at 3:30am to dig my car out and warm it up to go to the gym isn’t very appealing.

What are all yours’ new years resolutions? Have you kept previous ones? I make it a habit of NOT making any because I know I will never keep them.

MOH Dress From Aritzia

Okay, so remember in yesterday’s post when I said that I will give details today about my MOH dress? Well, I may or may have not been lying lol. Apparently I do not have a copy (or anyone else but the photographer for that matter) of a full body shot of the dress I was wearing. Odd I know. However, I do have in my possession a very unflattering full body picture of me during the ceremony taken by my photographically handicapped husband.

The wedding colours are dark purple and fuschia and my sister gave me the option of choosing whatever colour dress I wanted to wear. Originally I was going to wear purple and had a dress in mind from Artizia. My sister actually owns the exact dress I wanted to wear and we were waiting for it to hit the store. Unfortuantely Aritzia decided that this was the year that they were not going to be bringing the dress back so we had to look for something different. By now we only had 2 months to find something. Nothing we looked at was either the right colour or the style I that liked. If we did find a dress, then inevitably my size was not available.

I happen to look on the Aritzia site again since they were having their “Private VIP” sale, which is essentially their pre-summer sale. First of all if you’re on the email list for the “VIP” pre-sale, you might want to wait a couple weeks until their sale goes public and here’s why: my pre-sale discount was $110 from the original price of $125. I decided to try my luck and wait it out till the sale went public because I actually wanted to try the dress on first being that it would be an exchange only item. Well the public sale price was $95. Good thing I waited and saved myself $15.

I dont remember what the name of the dress is and it’s now sold out on the website.
