About Me

My Photo
I am a teacher, fitness/yoga instructor, runner, celebrity stalker, chocolate lover, embarrassing dancer, wine guzzler, can't-live-without-my-girlfriends kind of girl. I also have a collection of high heels that strongly outweighs my collection of runners. My goal is to find balance in my life through health and exercise- and when I say balance, I mean kicking ass in the gym and enjoying food, wine, family, friends, and basking in celebrity news. I hope you can help me in my journey and I hope that you, too can find balance!

Wedding Photo Indulgence and giveaway WINNER!

My 2 year anniversary is this weekend and in the spirit, we are going away for a whole week! I have SO much to write- my new Titika items, my anniversary day + dinner, but it's going to have to wait for next weekend when we get back from cottaging! I know, I know. You will be wiping away tears until my return. Okay fine. It'll be me crying. I digress.

Here's some wedding photos- just what you wanted!

My attempt at being a model. FAIL.

If you look closely... you'll see my blue suede shoes :)

The umbrellas were for show- it was the most beautiful day in the middle of summer!

God damn, my husband is HOT.
My ladies all decked out. Tyra Banks would be proud.
Thank you for indulging me- my wedding was my FAVOURITE day of my entire life- everyone I love together in one room- I wish I could repeat it every day. 

Speaking of Tyra Banks... I used to watch America's Next Top Model. I really liked it, until about 10 seasons in when I realized the only feedback that Tyra would give would be to "Smile with your eyes". She'd look at them and say "Like this". And she'd do a model face. Then she'd say, "Not like this". And nothing would change. Then she'd go back: "Like this. Smile. With your eyes."

Great feedback, Tyra.

Now, she's come out with an accessory known as a SMIZE (SMile with your eyZE). Equally stupid. Check it out.

Don't even get me started on the yellow tie.
In other, equally exciting news:

My lovely friend Christina over at The Athletarian has won my Swiss Naturals Giveaway!!! Her comment won as Random.org's pick for #4!

Congratulations, Christina! You won a gift basket filled with goodies from Swiss Natural! Let me know what you think of the products :) 

Alright, my friends. Very deep, important questions to ponder over the next week when I'm away: 

1. Smize Accessory. Yay or Nay? 
Definite NAY for this chick. Sorry, Tyra. 

2. Tell me your favourite wedding memory- either your wedding or as a guest! 
I am a sucker for weddings. Which works in my favour, as I happen to go to a zillion. I love the vows, the speeches, the dancing, the food, and of course... the cake. 
-At my friend Jackie's wedding, we sang "Shots, shots shots shots shots shots shots shots shots shots shots" every time we did a shot. Um... we did a LOT.
-At my friend Katherine's wedding, a fellow bridesmaid (Amanda) and myself did a rap for our speech. That's right, a rap. Think Ice, Ice Baby, Baby Got Back, Fresh Prince of Bel Air all mixed into a wedding speech. 
-We got a standing ovation and the crowd wanted an encore. We'll be putting out our debut CD soon. 
At my wedding, I loved walking down the aisle with my Dad to meet Carter. It was the most special moment of my life. We also did a surprise dance which was thrilling for me as it takes Carter about a bottle of liquor to get him to dance normally. 

3. If you could purchase any shoe RIGHT NOW, what would it be? 
If I had a zillion dollars, I'd buy me some Christian Louboutins. A-freaking-men. I DO need a new pair of running shoes, though. And I'm dying over Roots' new riding boots. And... I could go on. 


Christina @ The Athletarian said...

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY I'm so HAPPY!!! I can't wait to get my new drugs!

I hate the smize. WTF is that?!

Unfortunately I'm not married yet. Damnit, Dean! The weddings I have been to are clearly not as exciting as yours so I refuse to share any stories that may bore you to death.

Since I'm not a heel girl, I would pass on the Louboutins... I am in love with the Roots riding boots too. I'm deciding between those or a pair of Frye boots for the fall! Let's go shopping!!!!!!!

Amy said...

What is that growth on Tyra's face??
I love weddings, my little sister heads down the aisle in January and I am the chief bridesmaid :) I think I'll be crying more than our Mum though so there could be some major waterproof mascara needed.
Your photos are so beautiful and I love that you wore blue shoes!! Fitting for the fit queen in heels :) Happy Anniversary!

Hayley @ Oat Couture said...

Ahh you look ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! One seriously hotttttt bride! :) I'm not married yet either but am looking forward to my bests tying the knot early next year! And then if Luke ever pulls his finger out... haha ;D

Jess said...

HOT STUFF! You and your husband (and your wedding party for that matter) must have sizzled down that aisle! I LOVED seeing your pics, and happy anniversary to you both. Enjoy every moment my dear :)

Kristine @ Running on Hungry said...

GORG wedding photos!! Love!!

OMG I laughed out loud... SMIZE!!! I love Tyra and Top Model and I die a little every time she does that.

You better believe this girl is buying Louboutins after she crosses the finish line of her marathon!!
