Party & Purchase

Well, it’s official…we are home owners!  After a long, difficult, and trying journey to own our new home we finally closed!IMG_0295

We had a going away party Saturday morning on our roof with a bunch of friends and had a really amazing time getting to see everyone.  No words can express what all of you mean to Jay and I…we are going to miss you all so much.  Part of our hearts will always be in Brooklyn.  I can’t believe it is all coming to a close, I really can’t.  But this next chapter is going to be incredibly exciting.  There will be a lot of changes, and I’m sure some tough days, but I think we are ready for this big move.  Thank you all for your love and friendships…now everyone come visit!

My boys

I know I always say we are busy, but this weekend was really crazy…and for us to say it’s crazy is something.  Friday, I ran into a friend who was moving the very next day (by chance on the subway!) and ended up getting to say goodbye to her at her apartment, went to meet Jay (who had been celebrating his last day of work!) and then stayed out way too late with friends.

Saturday we went to Smorgasburg, a bbq with friends, and Postal Service at Barclay’s. It may sound silly, but having things that both Jay and I were loving long before we loved each other (like PS) makes me so happy!

 Sunday I went home to celebrate my other main man, Dad!  We had a yummy brunch, family walk, relaxed in the house, and went to the fruit stand.  Dad, love you, you know this.  (see ridiculous cat pet below)

IMG_0201When I got home Sunday night, we decided to go to see a late show of Superman.  Yes, I’m tired today, but it was worth it!  Nothing like a summer superhero blockbuster!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Engagement photos (part ii)

Julie just posted the second half of our engagement photos, and I’m in love with them!  These were taken on the Brooklyn Bridge, and though we look happy and lovely in them it was quite an adventure.  It was over 90 degrees, the balloons were the bane of Julie’s existence, and no one had eaten.  Silly problems I know, but not ideal for when you are supposed to look insanely happy to be together (ha!).  Here are some of the photos, the rest you can see at Julie’s full site here.

Gov Ball

This weekend was Governors Ball!  We had a great time seeing amazing performances all weekend…we did have to do it covered in mud, dirt, rain, and more mud, but it was fantastic!  We are suffering trying to stay awake at work today!  We got to see so many of our favorites (yeasayer, bloc party, kanye (!), lumineers, alt-j…so many others).  A great way to spend a weekend with friends and family.  N & S, so happy you came out and stayed.  S you are a trooper!

Here are a few fun ones from the muck…

There are more on her site and more to come from other locations.  I feel so lucky to have Julie not only as my future family, but to know such a talented photographer!  Thank you again Jules for doing these, we never would have without you!

what a weekend

This was a wild weekend!

Friday night was my best Bug baby’s birthday!  We even got a surprise burlesque show out of it…who knew that was coming?!

Then after a late late night, we did our engagement pictures with Julie all day!  I can’t wait to see them all!!  Check out her amazing photography here. She did send me one and without ruining her getting to share her work here is one…

After the long, hot, hot, hot, day of picture taking, we were off to dinner at 1 or 8 and out with friends for another late night.

Sunday, I got up and met Mom for some shopping in between Brooklyn and Flemington…little did I know we would end up finding my wedding dress!!!!!! I wish I could share pictures of it…it’s beyond perfect and I’m obsessed.  Mom (Dad too) thank you so much…so much.  I wish I could wear it everyday!

Here are some other pics from last week…
