Tea Time

I love tea!

I am not a coffee drinker unless it has a lot ton of sugar in it.

Because of my love for all types of tea when I heard of taking a bath in it I though to myself...

"why not?"

The main purpose of taking a bath in green tea is to pull all the toxins from your body. It also is said to help fight cancer infected cells without harming the tissue around it.

So I tried it out and I loved it! I placed in the recommended 5 bags of tea into my running bath water, filling the tub almost to the brim.

Make sure that after your tea bath you do not use any other body wash or lotions because that would defeat the whole purpose of taking this bath! 

If you take a green tea bath I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Now It's My Turn To Pop The Question...

Besides having the groom and your family with you on your wedding day a bride also needs her girls!

After searching Pinterest for ideas on how to ask my bridesmaids and maid of honor to be in the wedding I finally found one I couldn't pass up!

"Now it's my turn to pop the question... will you be my bridesmaid?"

First I started with a trip to Michaels (can I get an amen!) So here I am face to face with the first craft of many for the future wedding. Onward I walked with my 40% off coupon ready to begin.

In the end the above picture is what I decided on to purchase.
  •  -Small ivory note cards and envelopes.
  • -Brown fold up box.
  • -Double sided tape.
  • -Burlap Gypsy cards.
  • -One Paper pad (My Mind Eye).
  • - Blue paper
  • -Ring pop

I began by cutting my sheets of scrap-booking paper to fit the lid of my ring box. You can use any paper you want I picked this pack because it matches the theme of our wedding. After I measured and cut the paper I wrote on the burlap pieces with a Sharpie pen.

I doubled taped the burlap to the paper then the paper to the lid of the box. After I had all my pieces together I wrote a personal note for each of my girls, and placed it in the box along with the blue stuffing and ring pop.

For my Maid of Honor's box I just changed the wording written on the burlap.

Right before I gave the girls their boxes I opened their ring pop and placed it in the box and tied it off with some lace ribbon.

To add to the memories I also wrote on the bottom of each box as well.

One of my lovely bridesmaids goes to a different college than me so I had to mail her box to her. She was still excited though!

I am so excited to have these girls join Chris and I during our big day! I wouldn't have it any other way!

Zumba Time!

How many of you work out?

Ok how many of you claim to work out but really just go once a month to be able to say "I work out."

I am obviously in the second group.

This semester has been crazy insanely busy at school and just now has started to slow down. With extra time to spare I decided to hit the gym again. With full access to a gym I literally have no excuse.  

Monday night at 6:00 I dragged my butt to the gym and warmed up for Zumba class at 6:30.

For the record I did Zumba last year during school but a summer break is a long time.

In short I found two pictures that probably described how I looked during class.


So let's be honest I probably looked ridiculous but here's the thing, I rather look stupid then go on wishing for a better body or more energy.

Friday night I will look ridiculous again. And that's ok because in the end I don't want to end up like the second guy.
