I need a new hobby. I often think that I could have been really good at a lot of things… but something always stood in my way. Something of course being how terrible I feel about myself all the time. For a large part of my life I wanted to work in fashion and I worked a lot on my own making gifts for friends and teaching myself how to use the sewing machine. I had an etsy store for a little while but I was embarrassed about it. I wasn’t a …

Hello! Here they are the pictures from our Vegas wedding reception:

woo hoo! They’re great. We had a great time dancing all night, that conga was really early.
My friend Lia took the pictures after I asked on Facebook if anyone was around to take pictures at the wedding for not-that-expensive. She did a great job!
Quick fun story that I love. Lia is the wife of my friend Josh… who was the first boyfriend I ever had, ever. In high school, for about 7 days. I think maybe we held hands once. …

chicken mmm

And it tasted like Chicken Tikka Masala! I’ve been experimenting with Indian food and with my Slow Cooker and I found a few awesome recipes on Pintrest (which I also love and find it’s a great place to store my recipes the things I’ve found there I’ve actually made, which is a miracle for internet food browsing).
The thing about Indian food is that you need to do a lot of shopping before you can get started. You can walk into any kitchen and make something taste Italian or Mexican or …

the artist

We have a few resolutions for 2012, we started one a day early! We’re going to go to the movies every other Friday for the entire year. That’s 24 Fridays! I’m looking forward to seeing foreign films as well as blockbusters!

We started with the movie that I knew I was going to love from one view of the preview.
There are few things about me you should know:
- I love Singin’ in the Rain
- I love the Charleston
- I love thinking that I might be able to someday do the Charleston
- …

Merry Christmas Friends & Family!
Well Christmas is this weekend and boy am I glad that we started our e-holiday card tradition last year so people know what to expect this year!
On December 31, 2010 Juan Carlos and I spent a quiet New Year’s Eve at home. We also made the first of many wedding planning phone calls. Juan Carlos was on the phone and I remember very clearly watching him from the kitchen, hands clasped together smiling from ear to ear with my brand new ‘we’re really doing this’ smile.
We …

At my 24th birthday party in 2006 when we had been dating just a few weeks

This is us at my 24th birthday a few weeks after we started dating.

In the beginning of 2010 (before we planned to elope) a friend asked me what my plans were for 2011. I said, very casually, well I’m going to get married. Get married, I did! To say that the wedding has consumed me would be an understatement. I feel like my head is a cloud and everything is foggy and fuzzy and in the middle is a clear picture of JCPE.
This year was for us.
Every night I look …

tree

For the first time ever I own my very own grown-up tree! For a while we had a little mini hot-green tree that I would move around the house at Christmas time. We kept it in the shed (aka the Temple of Doom) and bad things happened to it. Bad things happen back there. Traumatizing things that involve unidentified sticky. So when we registered for things when we got married I wanted to make sure that I added a Christmas tree to the list. I like fake trees, they make more sense …

Update 12/03
Well the other day I get home and there’s a knock on the door right after. Which is weird because nobody ever comes over. It was two very nice young men from Frack Action. I took one look at their clipboard (good canvassing skills …

NYC Wedding Playlist Part 1

I’m actually writing this on Jan 3! I just downgraded all of our internet services like grooveshark (that we used to dj the nyc reception and needed to pay $6 for the songs to fade together) and punchbowl (for the invites) and grooveshark is being a weirdo. Sometimes my playlists disappear and I didn’t want them to go away forever. Especially since we sent them to the Vegas DJ who did SUCH an awesome job. So I did the only think I could think of… screenshots:

We had SUCH a great time at our wedding celebration on October 22nd! You might remember that we had to change the date due to Hurricane Irene, but like you have to tell yourself for all things ever, it worked out for the best!
The event was moved to a Sat night (what part of me thought I was young enough to go to work the day after my wedding, I don’t know) and the guest list more or less evened out! We missed those of you who weren’t able to …
