Its fitting that Another One Bites the Dust was playing as I randomly flipped through radio stations last week. Thats how I feel when I cross something off of my wedding to-dos.I am continuing to work through more of the details. Last week it was invitations (although that is not totally finished yet) and this week is hotels and flowers. Surprisingly, the floral side of things has caused me more turmoil than I care to discuss, but its coming along.I was happy to move on to figuring out the hotel reservations, which has been a lot simpler then some of the other tasks. Up next will be party favors, more flowers, and lots of online shopping!Before I go, I want to add that I watched the entire Super Bowl from start to finish last night. Yep, that was a super accomplishment for me. Sherrell was so proud, yay me!While watching though, I kept thinking about the physical conditioning that athletes have to maintain, because there body is their livelihood. The strength, the endurance, the speedit all takes some serious dedication. Its a true testament to their work ethic that they can keep their bodies in peak shape for so long. It really encouraged me.Though Ill never play football, treating my body like its my livelihood is a great perspective because, ultimately, our bodies are our livelihood. No one else is going to improve it, condition it, train it and cultivate it besides me. So, congrats to the athletes on the field and thanks for the encouragement!
