The newlywed nine

So, I guess I'm dorkier than I thought. I was out for a jog a few days ago, and I started off with a brisk walk to the end of the street. As I was walking, several cars passed me on the road. Not uncommon. I live on a moderately busy little street. I saw a guy in a Lexus pull into the pre-school, drop off his kid, and pull out. When he had driven just past me, he rolled down the window and asked in a very concerned voice if I needed a ride. Nothing creepy at all about. His concern was very real. I kept walking and told him thank you but no, because I was out for a run. He looked at me as if to say, "you? out for a run? sure" and drove away. Real nice.

Getting married has definitely been one of best decisions I've ever made, but it's amazing how much freakin weight it's put on us. We always find ourselves saying "the diet starts Monday," but the call of Coldstone is always so much louder than the salad bar. Boo.

Well, our friends Bryce and Carrie have done a really great job at sticking to a diet and now they've been recognized nationally. The Today Show did a feature on them recently. Click here to see the spot.

Oh, and be sure to check back tomorrow for the report on my visit to Cupcake Bar ;).
