Changes

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!

Raffy, inspecting literally every single box as we packed up our old place! I like to think he just didn’t want us to forget him 🙂

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.

Happy Monday, Leap Day, and New/Old Beginnings

Happy Monday, Leap Day, and New/Old Beginnings

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:

Saying Yes to the Dress!

Saying Yes to the Dress!

Before I get started, I just have to say that none of the dresses pictured here are my actual dress! I’m keeping that a secret from my fiance, although my mom, maid of honor, bridesmaids, and grandma have seen it or pics of it!

This past weekend was a big weekend: I went wedding dress shopping AND picked out my dress! Going in I had a very clear vision of what style, fabric, cut, and look I wanted, and I have to say I ended up with pretty much what I had in mind! 🙂 Considering I’m the most indecisive person ever, this was a pretty big deal. Even when regular clothes shopping, I have difficulty making decisions and will think over my purchases long before I actually swipe my credit card. My fiance actually said he was worried I wouldn’t find anything–he knows me too well!

This was the last dress I tried at the first store, and the best option I had tried up to that point. It felt very bridal (the poofiness) and I absolutely loved the back of it (I’m obsessed with the backs of dresses!), however, I don’t know that it was very “me.” Luckily, I kept searching! 🙂
