Well, a lot has happened since I last updated this, so I really have some catching up to do!
First of all, yesterday marked two months until our wedding day, so we are officially on the countdown now! We spent the day doing one very important wedding-related task: picking out my wedding band! We just sent out our invites about a week ago, and have already gotten some RSVP’s returned back to us, which is exciting. I will share our invites in another post because I am so in love with how they came out!
The other big change since I have last blogged (and it’s a BIG one!) is that Sheraz and I have moved to a new apartment!
We are still on the Upper East Side, but we actually moved south 14 blocks, into a place that is 1388357504684545 times better than the crappy little apartment we were in. Let’s just say we seriously upgraded and it was REALLY needed. I can’t say that we have more space in the new place, but we have better utilized space, and NEW space. Our building is brand new, and it is a dreeeeam coming from a place where there were roaches, things never got fixed, and the appliances were so old they had to be considered a safety hazard.
Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start! And Happy Leap Day!
It’s an exciting week for me because tomorrow is my last day at my job. I am actually returning to my old job, which I left almost exactly 1 year ago. I don’t regret leaving, and I think that time away has given me a welcome, and necessary, perspective. I think that this will be a good decision for me for a lot of reasons. Anyway, I’m really freakin excited to go back!
In gearing up for the week, the fiance and I may have gone a *little* overboard with celebrating this weekend (is that possible?) We went to brunch on BOTH Saturday and Sunday! haha. We had two amazing meals:
Every once in a while I like to take a spin class at Cyc (the only cardio I really enjoy doing)! My brother got me a giftcard of 5 classes for Christmas, which was the most awesome gift, and this morning the fiance and I both started our day off with a bright and early 7am class. After sweating our butts off, and already feeling like we had really accomplished something for the day (the perk of working out in the morning), we had time for a little breakfast date before work. Avocado toast is not a bad way to kick of the weekend! 🙂
We have lots of fun things planned for this weekend, including a meeting in Connecticut with our florist, and engagement pictures followed by brunch on Sunday morning! I’m looking forward to all of it. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
We were supposed to have our engagement photos done this morning, but instead Winter Storm Jonas decided to hit, dumping nearly 2 ft. of snow (so far) on NYC and shutting down the city. So instead we spent the day (mostly) inside, although we did have to get out a couple times just to see how much snow there was!
Well, now that we’re a few days into the New Year, I’ve had some time to sit and think about what I want to accomplish in 2016. It’s a big year–not only am I getting married, but I’m also turning 30 in August!
I think it’s good to sit down every once and a while a write out a list of goals or intentions. However, whenever I set out to create one of these lists, I kind of forget about them a month or two later. This year I intend to periodically check back in throughout the year to note my progress, even if this means just rereading the list to myself and mentally acknowledging where I’m at!
As I dive into this year, here’s what I hope to accomplish:
