Hoping Today is Better Than Yesterday!!!

I think it’s supposed to rain all day again here. Boo. It’s not currently raining but the skies sure are dark!! I decided to push my tempo run to tomorrow instead of today because it’s not supposed to rain tomorrow and I don’t want to chance getting stuck out in a storm! So, I got to sleep in a little this morning:) My stomach was GROWLING around 7:15 so that’s when I got up and got some cereal, fruit, and coffee! YUM!

I am hoping to venture out after this post to take Sadie for a quick walk before the storms get here! And then I may do some more walking on my treadmill for cross training. I would do The Shred or another Jillian workout but she always makes my legs so sore from the squats and lunges and I want my legs to feel good tomorrow for my tempo run! So that’s out! I am limited to cross training since I don’t belong to a gym. I would love to have a gym to go to that has a pool so I could swim as cross training! Maybe I will look into that, has to be cheap though! I’m on a school budget! Ha:)

So I really hope today is better than yesterday. I got into a fight with one of my best friends yesterday and my feelings are really hurt. I hate fighting with friends and RARELY do, so this sucks. I’m not going into detail because it’s between us but I just wanted to get it out because I am still upset about it and writing about it helps me feel a little better. I’m not sure where our friendship stands after this, which is very upsetting. I didn’t even know anything was wrong until we talked yesterday. I am just going to keep praying about it and I know whatever God’s plan is will happen. I just hate feeling this way.

Ok, onto more brighter things!! I have 3 wedding venues I am trying to decide between! Price is the MAIN factor because I love them all and need to stay on budget!! So, I am going to post links to all 3 and ya’ll tell me which one you like best!! Just pretend they are all the same price, because at this point I don’t know which one is cheapest (haven’t calculated it out yet!!)

1. The Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club I would do my ceremony on the beach and the reception on the terrace. Make sure to click on their shutterfly page to see all the pics!!

2. The Hilton Sandestin I would do my ceremony on the beach and reception outside on one of the decks by the pool overlooking the ocean. Make sure to click on the picture gallery to see the pics here!! This is where my family stays every time we go to Destin! It’s beautiful and would be great because we know where everything is!!

3. Emerald Coast Beach Weddings This would be just my ceremony and I would have to find a reception site. The good thing about this is I could pick the beach I wanted to do it at (any beach around the Destin area), so it could be a more private area and the package includes so many things!! My best friend Jaime used this company for her wedding about 4 years ago and they did a really great job. The downside is I would have to find somewhere else for a reception site but I remember they helped her pick one out.

So let me here your opinions!!! And,I guess Sadie and I won’t be taking our walk… it is currently pouring:( Hope everyone has GREAT day!!


  1. I really like the Hilton...so pretty with the deck outside! The terrace at Santa Rosa seems kind of dark to me.

  2. I would say either the Hilton or Santa Rosa! I think the Hilton is beautiful with the deck over looking the beach! Their pictures are beautiful! Hope everything works out with you and your friend!

  3. I pick the Hilton. It's gorgeous and you are already familiar - that will make it TONS easier for you!
    Isn't it a nasty, dreary day here in Memphis?

  4. I like the Hilton too! If I had my wedding to do over again, I would do a destination thing I think. It seems so much easier!
    I hope everything works out with you and the friend. I hate that feeling.
    Have you ever run at Herb Parsons?

  5. WOW! They are all totally gorge! But I'd go with #1 (if it were me - and assuming "they are all the same price")

    Thanks for sharing - keep the wedding deets coming, I LOVE hearing this stuff!

  6. WOW you have a tough decision to make. You have great taste. So it seems the Hilton would be best because you could have the reception and the ceremony at the same place, plus your guests can stay there. But the Golf and Beach club looks prettier for the reception. I'm a sucker for the outdoors. Bottom line is that anyone you choose will no doubt be absolutly georgeous. I've never been to Destin, but it's my hubby's favorite location in FL.

    Sorry to hear about your friend. Everything always works out for the best.

  7. Girl, you can't go wrong with any of those but I say #2 :)

    Praying for you and your friend!

  8. Wow, tough decision! The last one does sound appealing. But budget is def. important so take that into consideration.

    I hope things go well with your friend. What's meant to be is what's meant to be.

  9. I say the Hilton, but Santa Rosa looks nice too. I love the deck at the Hilton and since you're already familiar with them that is a plus for you. I have had many friends get married at Hilton's and have had good experiences. Best of luck in deciding and let us know what you end up choosing to go with :)

  10. I like the Hilton Sandestin. The view from that deck is sooo pretty! I'm sure they are the most expensive, but if not, I really like this one. Either way though, a beach wedding is going to be gorgeous!!

  11. hey I sent you a message on twitter to see if you want to go walk with me and Delaney in a little bit. Call me if you do! 626-5081

  12. :( I know how you feel about your fight with your friend! I hate that that happened, sucks just sitting there not knowing if you are still friends or not...but everything will work out!!

    The Hilton is GOOOO-JUSSSSS
