Our much anticipated costume party turned out beyond great! Michael dressed up as “The most interesting man in the world” (the Dos Equis guy) and it was quite the transformation! It took some time to get used to seeing him with all that gray hair, haha. I also transformed quite a bit; I went as his glam date (totally inspired by Marilyn). It was tons of fun and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves, so I say: success!
There is a lot happening this fall/holiday season. For the first time ever (along with some friends) we are throwing a Halloween party. Decorations are all set, but I definitely didn't realize what an undertaking it would be. There is so much planning involved, food is my biggest concern ( I think it's so important!) and while I have found some great recipes online, most don't seem very simple or practical, especially when you only have a few hours to prep. Any recommendations?
So aside from finalizing Halloween plans, our wedding planning is coming to an end. With less than 2 months left 'till our Vegas nuptials, there is still lots to be done. Thankfully, the question of what to wear has been answered. Mike got his tux yesterday, and today with the help of my lovely and very fashionable mom, I found my dress! I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was. My experience at the local bridal store was great, the bridal consultant was sweet and extremely personable. After trying on 3 dresses (all lovely) I found the one! As soon as I put it on and walked out to show my mom, I knew that was IT! The look on her face was priceless; she knew it too. I wish I could post a photo of it but Mike reads my blog from time to time, so that wouldn't be good, I guess I'll have to wait 'till the big day.
Now there's dinner and the new episode of “Walking Dead” to look forward to. I hope you all had a fantastic weekend (continue to enjoy it, it's not quite over yet!!).
Those of you returning may notice a few changes…LoudlyLiz has a new look (which I love!) and it is all thanks to my fantastic fiancè! Michael is in my opinion (bias aside) beyond talented and I’m super lucky to benefit from it =) What do you think of our new logo?
We typically eat dinner really late, this could have something to do with the fact that during the weekend we are late risers. Brunch for us, can happen at 1, 2, or even 3pm! Which really pushes dinner back, I’d like to think it is very European of us, ha! Anyway, I’m thinking I’d like to try a new recipe, so I decided to search online and found this…promising, no?
Glazed Salmon with spiced Carrots.
Ever get sad when the weekend is coming to an end? I do, I call this feeling the “Sunday blues”. This weekend has been great and thankfully not quite over yet. My fiancé and I both had what could be considered a long, hectic week so the weekend is something we were very much looking forward to. We happily agreed to a lazy weekend, we slept in, made breakfast together (my absolute favorite meal) and indulged in some of our favorite things; video games for him, reading and tv for me 🙂 I also got to spend a few hours with Carrie (friend, coworker and fellow blogger: CurrentlyCarrie) we got to catch up, make plans for our upcoming Halloween party and do a little shopping. I picked up a great book which I plan to start reading this week; “The Buddha walks into a bar”, a sort of modern-day guide to life using Tibetan Buddhism teachings. I have high hopes for it. Signing off for now, time to start thinking about dinner and maybe a movie to watch as we say goodbye to Sunday.
