wedding plans wednesday.

by Janetha on June 9, 2010

in meals,moves

i have mentioned that i’ve been busy with wedding plans a lot lately but i haven’t really talked about what the plans are! so i thought i would take some time to show/tell you guys about some wedding details. mixed in with my meals & moves, of course.

OH. before i get into all that, i have to tell you about my nervous breakdown i had last night! so, i hit “publish” on last night’s post.. and i get this screen from wordpress that says my blog has been suspended and archived due to violation of terms! WHAT?!?! my posts were all gone, i couldn’t access any of my blog, i burst into tears. it was dramatic. i emailed wordpress, frantically, and anxiously awaited resolution.  i think that this was just the icing on the cake to my bad day yesterday. work was rough as it was and marshall and i had gotten into an argument about work (which can happen when you work with your fiancé, not awesome) and i hadn’t mentioned it here.. but i was already feeling down and out. when my blog malfunctioned i totally lost it. the up side? at 12:30 AM marshall threw the pups in his car and drove down to my house to be with me. dog kisses and a fiancé by my side? instantly felt better. and when i woke up today i had an email from wordpress letting me know that the suspension was a mistake and they restored everything! PHEW. but now i need to figure out how to back everything up. i know i can export my content in the wordpress dashboard but that doesn’t back up the photos. if anyone has advice on how i can easily back everything up, please let me know!

okay.. so now that i’ve got that off my chest. let’s ramble!

meal 1: waffle! + PB2 & egg whites + ketchup @ 9:00 AM

IMG_4864

i love waffle wednesday :) today i had an organic flax toaster waffle topped ith 1 TB of PB2~ special thanks to the bestie for replenishing my PB2 supply for my birthday!

IMG_4870

i microwaved 3 egg whites and topped them with heinz reduced sugar ketchup. i am sure you are all sick of seeing egg whites around here, but i am not sorry. i just love eggs!

IMG_4869

and coffee in my favorite mug!

wedding plans: clothes for the dudes.

today marshall took care of his tux and the groomsmen’s suits! for his tux, he will be wearing this super sweet paisley vest:

image

it is hard to see, but there is a muted paisley pattern. he will also wear a black jacket, black slacks and his custom made pumas:

image

the groomsmen will be wearing the same paisley vest except it will be black. they will be wearing yellow neck ties, white collared shirts and black slacks. they won’t be wearing suit jackets.. just the vests. they also will be wearing custom made pumas:

image

woooo!

meal 2: salad+cottage cheese @ 12:00 PM

IMG_4883

look, i found a fork! i didn’t have to eat my salad with a spoon like the other day. 

IMG_4884

this salad was simply a bunch of veggies/greens, 1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese, a mixture of oikos+ranch seasoning+water drizzled on top as well as a mixture of hot & sweet mustard+water drizzled on top and then a few baby bell peppers. delicious.

wedding plans: clothes for the ladies.

i think i have already showed you guys my bridesmaid dresses, but i honestly can’t remember for sure. the ladies will be wearing this dress:

image

and these flip flops:

image

i obviously can’t show you my dress on the blog because marshall reads it (hi babe!) but i will tell you that it is a maggie sottero dress. i still have to find some shoes to wear for the wedding.. you can bet all your money that i will be wearing flip flops. i don’t do heels.

i can, however, show you the dress i am getting for my bachelorette party! it is so dang cute. my wedding colors are purple, yellow and houndstooth. no, houndstooth is not a color but it is my favorite pattern.. so i had to incorporate it into the wedding. this dress has a muted houndstooth pattern and i love it:

image

side note: doesn’t that model remind you of kailey?

plus it has pockets. pockets on dresses make the world go round. it’s true.

meal 3: cold protein mocha & cranbran vitatop + mighty maple peanut butter @ 3:30 PM

IMG_4887

the mocha was 30g EAS chocolate protein powder, 1/2 cup silk almond milk, 1/2 cup cold coffee and ice.

IMG_4898

i am slowly eating my way through my vitatop stash! i slathered this one with 2 tsp mighty maple. my fave.

IMG_4893

wedding plans: engagement photos.

well.. the engagement photos turned out awesome. i thought i would show you a few of the shots. we have one picked out for the wedding announcements.. can you guess which one we are using?

(all photos copyright brody dezember photography brodydezember.com)

imageimageimageimageimageimageimage

sorry for the overkill. there are like 247 more where that came from.. so consider this a snippet!

we will be using a bunch of the engagement photos as centerpieces! i got this idea from my friend summer’s wedding. we will get cute frames to match the wedding decor and throw an engagement shot in each frame and then adorn each table with a photo and maybe some cute knickknack and then an orchid. orchids are where it’s at.

image_thumb39

it was an upper body workout day! thank you to those of you who chimed in on upper body workout tips! great ideas in the comments section of my last post. special thanks to naomi for sending me so expert advice! homegirl knows her moves :)

i wanted to focus on back, shoulders and triceps. i feel like my biceps and chest don’t need a lot of work. also, i read something interesting on melissa’s blog (one of my favorite bloggers EVER.) the other day. she said: “My chest is the strongest muscle in my upper body and is causing my shoulders to hunch forward and give me bad posture. I need to back off the chest exercises and concentrate more on the upper back and shoulder area.” WOW. that makes a lot of sense. i don’t feel like i need to strengthen my chest any more right now, so i am focusing on other upper body parts but i will still do some chest work to keep me balanced. just not as much as i was doing.

anyway, the deets:

  • 10 minute elliptical warmup @ resistance level 10

the end! solid workout. my arms feel like noodles. total time: 55 minutes, max HR: 160, ave HR: 121, calories burned: 341<—great calorie burn for a lifting sesh. for me, anyway.

wedding plans: the registry.

something i forgot to mention! i was REALLY excited the other day when we received our very first wedding gift!  i was definitely taken by surprise as i didn’t think anyone had even looked at our registry let alone purchased something from it. but, wouldn’t you know it, hayley (one of my best bloggie friends) purchased some awesome grilling stuff we were registered for. hayley, you are too good to be true! thank you times a trillion. i just want to scream my adoration for you from the rooftops :)

ok, i know i showed you when we registered at bed, bath & beyond. we also decided to do a couple other registries and i thought i would talk about that! my favorite kitchen store is, ironically, one that is not in utah. crate & barrel. so we did register on crate & barrel online because their stuff is awesome. and a lot of people do online shopping so i am secretly hoping a lot of our guests opt to choose a gift off the crate & barrel registry over the bed, bath & beyond registry. i know you’re all obsessed with dishes and kitchen stuff (right?!) so i thought it would be fun to show you a few of the cool items we picked:

table in a bag:

image

kai serving bowls:

image

spice rack: (i have wanted a spice rack my WHOLE life! i am so stoked i finally will have my own kitchen so i can have one!)

image

ona pitcher: (isn’t this funky?)

image

man, i could hang out on the crate & barrel website all day!

the other place we registered with isn’t a kitchen store at all.. it is actually a website! i wanted to mention it because i know it is not well known and i thought some of you blogger  brides-to-be would be interested in the website! i actually heard about it from my friend summer who just got married. yeah, i talk about her a lot because she is like my only friend who was planning a wedding at the same time as me!

it is called honeyfund and you can actually register for things to do on your honeymoon! we are going to cabo so i registered for parasailing, a sunset cruise, horseback riding.. things like that. then guests can purchase activities for you and honeyfund supplies a certificate that guests print out and give to you as their gift.  the bride & groom don’t HAVE to use the money for that specific item, but it gives them the money to do so and it is a little more fun than just giving cash. i think this is an awesome idea.. i actually purchased dinner for my friend summer’s honeymoon~ i think that this is something totally fun and different when it comes to gift giving, so if you are in the wedding registry market you should check it out!

meal 4: tofu masala @ 8:00 PM

IMG_4999

WOOOO! finally, nice, firm tofu.

IMG_5006

i can’t believe i ever lived without this bad boy:

IMG_4846

tofuXpress!

IMG_4847

i was sent this tofu press from the folks at tofuXpress to try out and review.  i have always wondered how to get nice, firm squares of tofu (like the amazing sweet chile tofu at the whole foods salad bar!) and now the mystery is solved.

i placed a block of extra firm tofu in the press last night:

IMG_4849

pushed the press down:

IMG_4851

and popped it in the fridge until i got home to make dinner.  check out how much water was extracted!

IMG_4916

the press can also be used for cheese or other foods you need to press water from, like frozen and then thawed spinach. you can read more about tofuXpress here and here. the developer is marie kraft, you can read her story here. you can also check out their blog!

IMG_4858

special thanks to the people at tofuXpress for sending me this handy kitchen gadget for review. i will be using this every time i make tofu from now on!

let’s talk about how i made the masala, shall we?

first i chopped up a bunch of veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots and red bell pepper) and steamed them just slightly.

 

IMG_4918IMG_4917 IMG_4924

next, i diced an onion and sautéed it with olive oil, curry powder, cumin and tumeric.

IMG_4934IMG_4930IMG_4932IMG_4933

in a separate pan (i actually used a wok) i combined a can of diced tomatoes, a jar of trader joe’s masala simmer sauce and the same spices you see above.

IMG_4944IMG_4936IMG_4941

i let the flavors meld together and then i added the veggies to the sauce.

IMG_4949

i stirred this together and let it begin to simmer.

meanwhile, i diced the tofu and added it to the now caramelizing onions. i also put a bit more seasoning on the diced tofu.

 IMG_4951 IMG_4958 IMG_4965

patience is a virtue.. i kept stirring, flipping and admiring the pups as everything cooked. the sauce had to simmer down and thicken and the tofu had to crisp up. it took quite some time.

IMG_4966IMG_4976IMG_4919IMG_4969IMG_4974

once each element was done cooking, i combined them and then it was finally time to eat!  marshall served his over rice, i just ate mine as-is.

 IMG_5001

DE-FREAKING-LISH!

IMG_5003

that was quite the long process, wasn’t it? it was definitely worth the wait :)

well i am all out of wedding planning rambles and i am also all out of meals & moves details, so i guess that worked out perfect! i will be eating something here in a minute for meal 5, probably a protein frosty.

i have a great guest post lined up for tomorrow~ make sure you check back for that. i will be getting everything ready for our camping trip! woohoo!

Bites, Licks, Tastes, etc for today:

  • 1 calcium chew
  • multivitamin
  • 1 gallon water
  • lots of raw veggies while cooking

Qs~

1. favorite clean eats to take camping? i have my own list of must-have camping eats, but i would love to hear your ideas so i can incorporate them into my meal planning for the trip!

2. do you like tofu? what is your favorite way to eat tofu? the sweet chile tofu at whole foods is by far my favorite tofu ever. i have to learn to re-create it!

I haven’t even finished reading this post, and I have to comment. I had a totally visceral reaction to the whole “losing the entire blog” thing. AAAAHHH!!! SO SCARY!!!! I would probably burst into tears too. I’m so so relieved it was restored!

More happily, you two are adorable in the pictures. Awesome setting. Nice outfits too :) Good work!

Ashley June 9, 2010 at 8:45 pm

Awesome party dress! It’s gorgeous and totally you!

I LOVE honeyfund. My man and I have a house already, plus everything we could ever need for it. Instead of the traditional registry, we will be going with that. While all the nose-to-the-book brides will look down on it, I consider us quite the offbeat couple and it’s right up our alley!

Mary (A Merry Life) June 9, 2010 at 8:47 pm

Awwww, yay wedding stuff!! I love the custom made pumas and your dress for the party. And I absolutely love that houndstooth is part of your wedding “colors.” So fun.

I’ve never had tofu but I keep eyeing it every time I go to the store. I’m eventually going to try it. ;)

One Healthy Apple June 9, 2010 at 8:56 pm

Weddings are so exciting and truly warm my heart. I love wedding planning and miss mine a little bit, minus the stress and a few breakdowns! I love your engagement pictures and pockets MAKE dresses. I love them so much right now!

To answer your questions, I am not a camper at all…but I would say fruit and maybe homemade granola bars?
I love tofu, but only when other people make it for me…like Thai restaurants.

maria @ Chasing the Now June 9, 2010 at 9:10 pm

Your wedding planning seems to be going great. Just don’t stress because everything always works out. I was going to school full-time, working, and planning our wedding right before college graduation. It was nuts, but we ended up having a dream-come-true ceremony and reception. :)

Love the bridesmaids, groomsmen and grooms outfits! I loved Maggie Sottero dresses when I was looking online but we didnt have quite the selection here. Your engagement pics turned out awesome…gorg couple. The tofu masala looks amazing…I need to get my hands on a tofu press!

Laura @ Starloz June 9, 2010 at 9:33 pm

Your wedding is going to be amazing. I love the bridesmaid dresses.

Your engagement photographs are stunning, you are both just perfect for each other. I’m excited for the wedding!

LOVE the e-pics… i almost wish we’d done fun ones like that, but we made up for them with wedding pics. Tofu=love :)

jqlee June 9, 2010 at 10:12 pm

omg, so glad everything is restored. i would have flipped out too!! glad it’s okay though :)

i love egg whites too, no shame girl.

dresses with pockets are MONEY!! i LOVE that marshall and you are rocking pumas and flip flops respectively. that is too cute.

i do like tofu, i dont cook it much but i get it at the WF bar for sure.

Reply

Anne June 9, 2010 at 10:13 pm

Ouch, good thing the blog scare was a false alarm…

Yeah, pockets on dresses are making life sweet for me too! I hate the idea of ever having a wedding, but the more I hear about your plans the more i get to like the idea. The flip-flops sealed the deal, I think ;-) Grrreat. Looking forward to seeing the dress :-)

BroccoliHut June 9, 2010 at 10:15 pm

Love, love, love the engagement photos! Not overkill at all.
I think you probably know that I am a tofu fanatic. My favorite ways to eat it: Cashew Ginger Tofu, scrambled tofu, and Tofu-Banana French Toast.

Michelle June 9, 2010 at 10:18 pm

Yikes! on the blog-scare – you poor thing! NOT something you need now or ever!

LOVING YOUR ENGAGEMENT PICS ! couldn’t even pick a fave they were all so great …

Also, yes, chest is important. It makes me stand tall and I feel it improves my posture a lot.

1. I had a mini heart attack when Wordpress wouldn’t let me get to your blog yesterday
2. I absolutely LOVE your wedding colors. what would you call that shade of purple? Eggplant? Anyway it’s my fave, and totally what I want to use…when I get married, eerr find a man, then get married…
3. You are my daily inspiration for the BFL workouts, so I rely on you and your hard work. Thanks Janetha for just being AWESOME.
4. I’m done lurking…I’m outta the word-work for good. Expect lots more comments coming your way! :D

Thanks for the shout out! I hope that works for you too.
I’m so sorry about all the stress. You’re definitely juggling a lot of things right now so a little freak out is certainly warranted. I hope everything comes together with the blog. It’s working fine for me right now (obviously since I’m commenting).

Your engagement pics are the bizness! They look so real! I hate fake ones where there’s a couple with their arms around each other on a yacht. Yeah okay, you own a yacht? You guys look so natural and relaxed. LOVE.

Erica June 10, 2010 at 3:23 am

This post is so packed with exciting stuff- I don’t even know where to start! Love the custom pumas- how cool is that. Your bridesmaid dresses are adorable and I am obsessed with the fact that they’re wearing flip flops!! Adorable bachelorette party dress. I wore a black sash around my wedding dress!! The engagement pics are SO you two- perfect. I had that same pitcher on my registry! I want to try that tofu press super bad. Hope you’re doing better- and am glad the blog is ok <3 <3

Reply

Quinn June 10, 2010 at 3:23 am

I love all your spins on the wedding – those Pumas are killer! And OF COURSE you would incorporate houndstooth into your big day :) Digging the bachelorette dress – you are going to look fab in it!

LOVE tofu! It’s so versatile and totally takes on any flava you’re cooking with.

I have to say, ever since my Girl Scout days (I had issues with sleeping outside, using port a johns, smelling like a bonfire, you name it – I complained), I have sworn off camping, so I can’t really help in that dept.

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is June 10, 2010 at 3:40 am

I tend to avoid tofu because I have thyroid disease and avoid soy. But I always think it looks pretty good!

Reply

Lauren June 10, 2010 at 3:46 am

Okay first….How awesome are Marshall’s shoes?!?! Love them! Also, the bridesmaid dresses are stunning! Wow, it’s going to be one amazing day. I can’t wait for you!!!!!
And, your bachelorette party dress is to die for!!!!!! OMG you are going to be one hot mama! Watch out Salt Lake City! Ow Ow!!!

Haha, okay I am so jealous that everyone has this tofu compressor! I can’t explain how badly I need one of these. Here is my current method….take the tofu out of the package, press in paper towels, put the sugar container on top for 5 min. Only problem, the sugar container ALWAYS falls over and never really does the trick. Oy, how this contraption would save my life. :)

Love you girl! Happy Thursday!!!

Reply

Beth June 10, 2010 at 3:51 am

OMG, I would have freaked too. The thought of losing all of that blog history and the photos makes me feel sick.

I love that masala sauce from TJs, but I loathe tofu. I was vegetarian for 7 years and never did learn to like the stuff. It looks delish minus the ‘fu.

I love the bridesmaid dresses. Purple is my favorite color.

Reply

Olga June 10, 2010 at 4:22 am

Beautiful photos :) I can’t wait to see your dress!

I absolutely LOVE tofu. In fact, I just found it sold as cubed already in my grocery store and I almost squealed! I need to make something with it soon.

I like the tofu pressing device but I don’t know if I have enough room for another thing in my kitchen!

Reply

Ashley June 10, 2010 at 4:34 am

Omg Janetha! Beautiful pics and love everything fir your wedding. Custom pumas? Amazing! That instantly reminds me of San Fran and our damn hike! You are going to be the most beauttttiful bride!!!! I still say you should do vegas when I’ll be there…. Give it some thought! :)

lindsay June 10, 2010 at 4:57 am

I was wondering what happened to your blog. Glad its all taken care of. I love Marshalls tux and shoes. THats awesome!
Camping food- gotta love making eggs and bacon (turkey) in the campfire!

Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine June 10, 2010 at 5:15 am

Love all the wedding stuff!! Those engagement photos are gorgeous. I was actually just looking at wedding shoes online for my brother’s fiance, and Steve Madden has a pair of gorgeous rhinestone flat sandals called “Bride”…here’s the link if you want to take a look! http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3061586/0~2376778~2372808~2376689~6022847?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6022847&P=2

I love my tofu raw!! Such a weirdo I know…a lot of people say it’s tasteless, but I love the blandness of it! Hope you have a wonderful Thursday :)

Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) June 10, 2010 at 5:26 am

My Weds was full of wedding plans too! So fun, but SO stressful!!

I LOVE the groomsmen’s looks. Custom Pumas are an awesome idea! My guys, being sailor dudes, are wearing Reefs :D I obviously love the color (and dress!) for the bridesmaids, and OMG that dress! Super, super super cute! Love the cut… the houndstooth… errything!!

I love the engagement photos- you two are adorable! And love the centrepiece idea. Orchids are my fave flower! But we are using wildflowers, from Nick’s mom’s garden! :D

I LOVE C&B. We are registered there too, although they only have online registration for the US… so all of our gifts are going to the US! Boooo…

That curry looks delish, I love curry- especially that simmer sauce. Yum yum yum.

I like nonperishables like trail mix, cereal and dried fruit for camping trips!

And I love tofu. I love the sesame tofu at whole foods! My fave way is baked, caramelized a close second :D

Hi! I feel your pain when you think your blog is lost and I have some suggestions! So I’m not sure if it’s the same with wordpress or not but– I registered with Picasa and they automatically download and store ALL pics I post on my blog through blogger. Also it went and saved all pics from before I even registered for Picasa so I literally have every pic that is posted on my blog there in case I lose anything. As for the words, not sure how to save that part yet. But maybe that will help you with the pics. I think I loaded it into picassa through an RSS feed and that’s how it picks them up.

Hope that helps!
Take Care

I just have to let you know that I am IN FREAKING LOVE with the wedding apparel! Its awesome and definitely represent your personal style. Nice job!

1. Camping food: make Hobos. they’re very customizable: just veggies/meat/spices/whatever you want wrapped in tin-foil and cooked over the fire!

2. I’ve been marinating my tofu in some soy sauce, ginger powder and salt and pan frying it in some sesame oil.

Angela @ A Healthy Fit June 10, 2010 at 5:57 am

Dude, I totally need/want that tofu press. so cool! We got that same spice rack when we got married. Also, I loved Maggie Sottero’s dresses. They were all so different. I ended up with a Pronovia that I loved! Can’t wait to see your dress.

hey sexy mama!! so glad you like the MOVES :) and you incorporated them!!!! i wish it was me in the videos showing you how to do it but ahh well…youtube does have its perks!! those I,T,Y’s are the shizzzzz I give them to so many of my clients who always want to work on their back :)

what melissa said about working her chest too much and her shoulders sluumping forward…yep this is going to happen when you don’t work antagonistic muscles with proper balance. Too much focus on the front and not on the back, so the back is becoming weaker and causing the shoulders to slump in…ALWAYS work opposite muscles evenly!!

i LOVE your pics! youtwo look so natural and georgeous! did I mention I also love those pumas that marshall’s groomsmen are wearing?! you two are so stylish I love it!!!

that houndstooth dress is amazing! i seriously love it and would wear it out!!

YES i love tofu and love experimenting with different spice rubs and marinades! I have some tuesday night, the marinade is on my blog, it ROCKED

hmmm i havent been camping but I wold take protein bars, protein powder, homemade muffins or granola bars, luna bars, trail mix!

LOVE YOU

Eeek! I can’t imagine what I would do if I suddenly lost my blog. I’d be having a mental breakdown, too.

I just found out yesterday that this weekend I’m going on a special surprise birthday camp-out for one of my best friends! Should be lots of fun! As far as food goes, I’m just going to try and relax and eat whatever’s available. I know that’s probably not what YOU want to hear, but we have different goals right now I think!

So sorry about your rough day- that is freaky about the wordpress mistake. I hadn’t thought of backing my blog up- glad Marshall came over to help!

LOVE the photos of you guys! Can’t wait to see which ones you pick- I don’t have a favourite. All amazing!

The houndstooth dress is so perfect :D You have to post photos when you wear it! I don’t do heels either. Never. People expect me to because I’m short, but I can’t walk in them.

1. favorite clean eats to take camping? pouches of tuna, cans of kidney beans (thw two combined are so good plain!), sweet potatoes to throw on a grill/BBQ, instant oatmeal, peanut butter, applesauce…

2. do you like tofu? what is your favorite way to eat tofu? I freaking LOVE tofu. My favourite is the “power-fu” from NY. It’s like a spicy chicken salad- no idea how to recreate it :(

I love getting to see your wedding stuff. Thank you for sharing! Great pics! Definitely not overkill. :) That’s such a cute idea to use the photos as centerpieces. I can’t wait for it all to come together for you. I’m so glad that you didn’t lose everything on your blog!! Mine is only a few weeks old and I know I would have freaked!

I LOVE everything you have picked for your wedding, from the dresses to Marshall’s vest to the flip-flops…mostly because it is all YOU! I can’t wait to see what you are picking for your food/cake/etc. and more importantly, your dress!

I got nothing for you on the camping. Trail mix and homemade protein bars and apples?

Tofu? You know I love it. I NEEEEEEEED a press.

Happy Thursday, J!

You guys are going to look so snazzy! Love the custom pumas espesh.

Your engagement photos are goooorg! I could look at them for hours.

And that tofu dish looks off the charts. I’m emailing it to myself for future reference.

LOVING the wedding stuff! The customized Pumas are brilliant and the party dress is adorable. LOVE the pockets! I’m STILL jealous of your PB2! I’ve been searching out peanut flour like you recommended but can’t find it anywhere!? Do you order yours online? Also, how do you prepare it to taste like peanut butter? zero cal sweetener + water?

1. Clean eats for camping for me include stuff like premade zuke chips, turkey jerky, apples, and eggs (cause they’re easy to make if you have a camping griddle!) I also like those spicy chicken/turkey nuggets made by Jack Link’s! YUM.

2. I like tofu a lot! I need to incorporate it back into my diet. I think they’re good “scrambled egg” style or in Caitlin’s perfect baked tofu with SF syrup & reduced sodium soy sauce + chili powder marinade!

Dresses with pockets do make the world go round!

I loved seeing the wedding details and how much you personalized it! It truly seems to reflect your and Marshall’s style.
