Ice & Snow

The first snowfall of the season came last weekend.  I guess it was an appropriate day to see Cirque du Soleil’s Crystal!

November’s End

It has literally just occurred to me that today is the last day of November.  Where did this month go?!  Things have definitely been hectic, but the least I can do is this one last blog post before the month is over!

[1] We kicked off the month with my bridal shower! [2] We finally got to play the SNES! (in my wedding make-up) [3] We had a big meeting with our wedding venue and things got so real.  Are you sensing a theme here?! [4] I finally got my hands on some of Essie Wild Nude’s including my new favorite, “Exposed.” [5] ULTRA SUN & ULTRA MOON RELEASED! [6] We put our Christmas tree up! [7] I rocked many a moon, including this sweater from J. Crew & gorgeous Alex & Ani necklace. [8] This dachshund creamer arrived in the mail the other day as a shower gift from my friend Kelsey! [9] We tried Tora, a new restaurant in Chinatown, and loved it!

I think things are only going to be more hectic as we wrap up 2017!  What were your favorite November moments?

Wedding Prep & SNES

Weddings & video games are the theme for the year, no?  We also do some foodie things.  (Remember this?)  So, an average weekend.

Weekend vlogs are back on schedule!  I didn’t know if I was going to post this today, because it’s actually a very special day.  We got engaged one year ago today!  Instead of rushing a post for that, I’ll talk more about the engagement so far soon!

For now, I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL ULTRA SUN & MOON TOMORROW.

My Bridal Shower in Photos

Since I really couldn’t vlog my perfect bridal shower, I wanted to share a few favorite photos I gathered from people!

Can you tell I love donuts?  My mom surprised me with donuts as a dessert and my bestie & bridesmaid Julia took these hilarious photos.

My brother’s girlfriend Courtney borrowed this chalkboard from work and served as the day’s event planner with my mom– they did such an amazing job!  Speaking of amazing, look at this guy with that bouquet!

My MOH Amanda granted my wish of a flower crown!  My dress, which you can see in this photo with my beloved Nonna, is from Free People.

My beautiful bridesmaids!  I have my lifelong friend Chelsea, bestie Julia, future-sister-in-law Caitlin, and cousins Amanda, Christina, and Daniella by my side.

My immediate family, and the girl cousins (the “pretty babies,” as much uncle calls us)!

A few favorite from instagram!  Clockwise: my hometown friends, soon-to-be sister, future husband, and moms!

With Julia, who I’ll be a bridesmaid for a year from my shower; with Amanda, who I’ll be MOH for next month; and with Tara, whose wedding was the first Matt & I went to together!

And one last shot of the flowers!  Big thanks to my aunt for taking so many of these photos.  Fun fact: I was in my aunt’s wedding maybe 20 years ago?  Her daughters are my junior bridesmaids!

143 days to go til we’re #lyontheknot!
