2 Month Bandiversary and Weekend Update


Today is my 2 month bandiversary!  In some ways if feels like these last 2 months have flown by and in other ways it feels like it's taking forever!  I still have not once regretted my decision and I am so excited for what is to come!

So here are the numbers: Since April I have lost 36 pounds (17.5 since surgery) and a total of 21 inches! My clothes are definitely fitting me differently and I have noticed differences in many other areas.  

I had an NSV for the wedding that I am in.  I was measured for the dress before I had the lap-band surgery and I let her know that I was going to have it, so we ordered it a size smaller.  I picked the dress up last week and it is HUGE on me.  It's going to take a lot of alterations to get it to fit, especially because we still have a month and half before the wedding, but it's definitely a good problem to have!



We had a bachelorette party this weekend for that wedding and all the girls in the wedding party went to Fredericksburg, TX for the weekend.  We had so much fun!  The first night we went out to dinner and then went back to the hotel for Holly's lingerie shower.  The next morning the limo picked us up and we went on a wine tour to 3 different wineries and a Bourbon distillery.  We had so much fun!  That night we went out on the town and had a blast!

Here are some pictures.

I drove home really late on Saturday night so I could get back in town to have lunch with some amazing blog friends!  It was so nice to meet and re-connect with Ronnie, Beth Ann, Debi, Dawnya and hang out!  I love getting together with people who know exactly what you're going through and we had a blast together!


Hope everyone is having a great week!!! <3 Love y'all!

  10. You look great in that big ol' dress. I say wear it like that. And say, "Yeah, that's right... this used to fit. I'm awesome, because it's baggy as all get-out now." No? Well, it was just an idea.

    Had a great time with ya this weekend!
