What's New In The Life of Christina

I absolutely hate starting a post off with "I've been sooooo busy" but, alas, here I go.

Busy I have been!  I can not believe how busy this week is/was and this morning, after I woke up, I realized that I've gone 4 days without posting anything.  First of all, shame on ME and second of all, check out what I've been up to this past week.

1. I am now a kickboxer

I use this term loosely BUT I've joined a kickboxing/boxing gym and am blown away by fabulous it is.  I know it's fabulous because I feel like puking whenever I'm done exercising and my entire body is sore apres a workout.  However, I am feeling more motivated about this workout regimen than about any other before and I really feel like this could be the workout for me.

2.  Wedding planning stress and groomsmen attire

I, honestly, don't know how wedding planners do it...they remain calm, collected and stress-free while ensuring weddings go off without a hitch.  But, for me, I can barely keep it together when going over our playlist.  I am forever grateful to my pal, Bronwen, and to Allan for allowing me to have meltdowns and NOT judging me for being a crazy bride-to-be.  Needless to say, this has taken up the majority of my time.  Plus, we FINALLY nailed down the groomsmen outfits.  The boys have their fittings this Saturday and it's such a relief!!  (As much as I complain about this wedding process, I am soooo excited that it's only 4 months away.)

3.  Family trips 

This past weekend Allan and I went to Kelowna to visit the family.  It was an awesome tiome, albeit too short, but fun all the same.  Our time was filled with tennis, sun, shopping, tea, food, gin and family talks.  I wish that we all got together more often but this short time seemed to make up for it.  Can't wait for the next family get together.

4.  TV time

Sometimes, I just need to curl up on the couch and watch mindless TV for a few hours.  This weekend Allan and I caught up on our favorite show, Game of Thrones, and I also watched Hart of Dixie and The Real Housewives of Vancouver.  Yes, I love reality TV.

5.  Exploring new tea 

Yes, I'm still obsessed with tea and Davids Tea launched a few new ones.  So, Monday I dragged Allan to my fave shop and we sipped, smelled and tasted our way to some new tins for my ever-growing collection.

What sorts of trouble have you all been getting into?


  1. Ahh! I'm so glad you've been having fun! Also, I'm a horrible friend because I meant to sit down and write you a lovely email for your birthday.. And my life has been too busy to sit down and have that much time. Did I even TELL you happy birthday?! I can't remember! :X Shame on me.

    And yes, planning a wedding is stressful. I swore I would never be a Bridezilla, but I know I failed on that promise several times along the way. It's just how it is. Everything will be perfect when it counts, though.. and if it's not, you'll most likely be able to laugh about it later.

    ♥ and miss you!

  2. Kick boxing looks so fun! (maybe just to me! haha)

    Don't stress about not blogging hun, we all get busy!


Thanks for the love!...XO Christina
