Hot Wedding Color for 2013: Mint

I love weddings! In fact, this blog started as a wedding project, to track down my goals and to-do-list for the big day. And of course to track down weight loss progress.

I also love Pinterest and have used it constantly last year when I was planning our wedding. Our wedding colors are yellow and gray and since then I’ve been obsessed with looking at pin boards with different wedding color combinations.

As I was browsing some of my favorite pinners, I found out that Mint or Peppermint Green is one of the hottest colors for wedding theme in 2013.

I went ahead and looked for complimenting colors and came up with these mood boards.

Mellow Mint – for laid back, shabby chic weddings

Mint Vibrant – this one is a little more upscale and vibrant

There’s a lot more color well-suited for mint, you just have to mix and match and see what’s best for you and what matches your personality. 🙂

I’m Married!

We finally made it! Would just like to share some photos from our wedding.

I DIY: Menu Card, Table Number and Napking Ring

Been so busy I haven’t updated this in a while. Doing lots of DIY lately and finishing my to-do list. It’s less than 40 days to go!

I’m a little bit behind my workout too. But giving my best to juggle everything, spending a lot of time with cardio these days.

49 Days to Go!

It’s 49 days to go ’til the big day. There are still some minor and a couple of major things we have to accomplish. I’m still not too worried yet (I’m not sure when I would be), but there are some pressing matters that we have to attend to IMMEDIATELY.

On top of everything, I will have to intensify my training and if possible come into the gym 5-6 days a week from now. Weight training is still of primary importance to me, but I have to make sure that I am also doing lots and lots of cardio. The hardest thing is to eat clean. EATING CLEAN, during the holiday season is IMPOSSIBLE. I will have to try my best to filter out what I eat whenever we go out with friends too. I think I have to follow a strict “21-days to break a bad habit” approach on this one.

I think I also need to do yoga again. My sleeping pattern is weird again.

Please please please wish me luck.
