Hey, wassup, hello! I can’t believe it’s been over 2 months since my last update. The first two weekends of October were reserved for weddings, then Halloween came, birthdays, Thanksgiving, and here we are near Christmas. When I’m not procrastinating on my couch, I’m trying to wedding plan aka not get yelled at by my mom because I am a terrible planner.
Dave and I were able to squeeze in an engagement photo shoot while the weather was still decent. We started in Beacon Hill, my favorite neighborhood, and ended at the Boston Public Gardens, which is Dave’s favorite spot. Our photographer was awesome and we felt comfortable with him.

My hair seems to require more maintenance since I started highlighting it again. I have been trying to grow it super long but it was in desperate need for a trim; my last cut and color was 4 weeks ago. I went in to see my girl yesterday and she worked her magic. I was really feeling myself after the blowout so I texted Dave that we should have a photoshoot. We went to the Arnold Arboretum in Boston and snapped some pics. What I wasn’t feelin’ were my mismatched socks, one high and one low, and the pimple I photoshopped out.
Afterwards, we went to The Regal Beagle for a pre-birthday dinner. It is one of my favorite brunch spots so I was happy that dinner was just as good (chef Stacy Cogswell was a contestant on Top Chef). My birthday is on Sunday so it’ll be more low key than usual, especially since it is the first birthday away from my parents. I’m seeing Incubus tonight so maybe that will get me excited to celebrate the weekend.
These ear jackets are my favorite accessory.
Checking out the hops. It smelled like the Sam Adams brewery, in a good way.
Casual Friday has lost its meaning since I started working from home; every day is casual Friday. Other people in my position have stressed that it is important to have a routine and to put some effort into getting ready. I am trying to heed that advice but sometimes it is easier to dress like you’re going to basketball practice. I came home last Sunday for my sister’s birthday and to complete some wedding specific errands. While at dinner for another friend’s birthday, my friend Brittany and I realized that our offices were a block away from each other (how did we not make this connection earlier). We met up for Shake Shack and took our meals to the rooftop plaza. Since she is one of the sweetest people I know, she obliged when I asked her to snap these photos of me not looking like a mutant.

I clicked a couple of things and managed to overwrite some directories, which subsequently deleted the mere 3 posts I had published. Oops. Oh well. Spring late bloomed like it was a girl awaiting puberty (ya girl) but better late than never.
