I still can't believe it, and calling Paul my fiancé... completely weird. I wonder if I will get used to it before I have to start calling him my husband?
I am 28 years old and most of my friends are married and on to kiddies, some even on their second kiddies, but somehow I just don't feel old enough to be a wife. I have to say though, I am marrying my perfect pair. He's a goofball like me in every way and that alone let's me know we are going to be happy for a long time.
We are looking to the fall which gives us about 4-5 months of planning so in the words of my girlfriend, it's Operation: Pull The Trigger time.
Now when I say healthy and getting into shape it means that not only do I need to start hitting the gym harder and taking care of my skin, but I need to put the beers down and kick this healthy diet up a few pegs. I try to do this on a regular basis but nothing puts motivation in your mind like having a million pictures of you to stare at for the rest of your life.
Your wedding is a day to remember forever... and I will not be remembered for flabby arms. So I am searching out those delicious recipes with lots of flavor and very little waist line.
This soup would be the perfect lunch or served as a starter with grilled chicken or fish. The flavors are light, fresh and perfect for spring.
