The past two days have been wonderful. Marlowe and I love having Alex here. We take turns taking naps and sharing responsibilities. We eat (more) delicious food. And we have major amounts of snuggling time. It’s pretty terrific. Last night was especially great. The more than wonderful Michelle, babysat Marlowe so Alex and I could have a proper date. Drinks, dinner, and dancing. Alex was extra sweet and called a wonderful restaurant in Miami to see if they could accommodate me with a vegan meal. (Of course) they said yes, and off to Miami we went! We sat at the bar eating radishes and sharing drinks until our table was ready. We laughed about me ordering a special vegan meal made, while Alex, looking over the menu asks: “What should I order?” and I respond “pork shoulder”. It only makes sense, right? We drank delicious wine and headed back north to meet friends for a birthday celebration and dancing. Lots of dancing. We are dancing fools together.
I’m looking forward to many things. The weekends most definitely don’t feel very weekend-ish around here. My day to day routine is almost identical no matter what day it is (except for friday when we usually have our lady dates)… and Alex well, he’s non existent on weekends. He practically lives at work. BUT this weekend… this weekend will be different! Tomorrow I’m driving down to Miami to try on wedding dresses! I’m am pretty excited. After trying on (and hopefully choosing) a wedding dress, Michelle and I plan to drive even more south to the raw vegan market. Once upon a time, I did my weekly shopping there. I’m looking forward to scarfing down fruit pies and cashew shakes.
Other than that? I’m patiently waiting to hear back about a house! That’s right! My dad is helping Alex and I purchase a home! We put an offer in a few days ago and I’m anxious to hear the news. So far, it doesn’t look too optimistic because there were multiple offers, but I’m still hopeful. The house is beautiful, spacious, and has a yard I am in love with. Eeeep. I am really hoping this happens, while 640 square feet is comfortable enough for our tiny family, it would be so nice to have a bigger space and a real yard for Marlowe. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
The wedding is coming along incredibly smooth. We’re keeping it small, trying to keep the guest list under 50 (not including children). Our location is set (and it is amazinggg). With the help of Lindsey from Out Of Alabaster our “save the date cards” should be printed and mailed in the next week. My wedding dress will hopefully be picked this weekend. Our photographer(s) are picked. Decorations are being made. And the flowers are set to go! I’m looking forward to so much!
**I mostly love this video because she started laughing to mock us and our laughter. And every time I play it for her she continues to laugh at herself 🙂
