Well, Hello! There

Monday, August 1, 2011

So, what do you think of the new and improved blog design? Lindsey worked her magic this weekend and now it's almost close to complete. I am absolutely in love with the fresh colors, and more so, the big new name change. 
First of all, I loved the comments about what to call my dear little blog. It was a very hard decision to change what had been "mine" for so long, but with a new chapter, I think I needed something totally different that spoke to everything that encompasses my life...family, friends, food, fashion, and how to take in the all the happiness life has to offer.
With that, I also bought my very own custom website domain--fancy, right? So you'll automatically be switched over to my new site via Google Reader and such, but for those that wish to bookmark, it's:

So how was everyone's weekend? Mine basically involved consuming as much food as possible with my dear friends, oh, and a little wedding picture action! We had our meeting on Friday night and officially walked away with about 1,000 pictures to call our own. Chris and Adrienne took almost 3,000 shots of our big day, but then after all the editing and such, we've got a FABULOUS assortment of pictures and I cannot wait to share lots of them. It's going to take awhile for me to get them all sorted and blogged, so give me some time, but I promise to make it happen ASAP. Here are just a few just to give you a peak:
This could be my favorite picture from the entire day--my handsome groom
The altar for the I-Do's
Officially husband and wife!!
Garter Time...love this picture
Vintage Rools Royce Getaway Car to the Hotel
Now, back to the important stuff...food and friends! We tried out Bella Napoli so another check off my local restaurant to-do list. Very authentic italian food--think antipasti, thin pizzas, and yummy pastas and you've got the jist of it...live music, too!
We also ventured to our little slice of brunch heaven--Sky Blue Cafe--though after waiting 2 hours to be seated and get our food, we walked away thinking that was our last time to visit my former favorite place...boo to poor customer service.

So it's Monday and I'm back at work trying to be productive, though all I can think about is meeting up with my ladies tonight to watch the finale of The Bachelorette!! Team JP for all of us and to be honest, I'm so glad we've got a new installment of Bachelor Pad to look forward to in the coming weeks...happy day friends!! OXOX
