Just when I thought I was done with all 40 or so thank you notes…
Two more gifts arrived.
Not complaining, because lord knows we need more storage stuff to neaten up our kitchen, but….ack. I will get these done. We mailed a huge batch today, and we just have a few more to do that are kind of impossible to do right now for various reasons.
The best thing about being married so far?
LOVE IT. (Note: it got flattened by the rain a bit.)
I feel so much more like MYSELF now. Long hair is NOT for me. I feel hot, and hairy, and gross, and awkward, and immature in it. I grinned like an idiot the entire haircut.
(It is not really the best part of being married, though. But pretty great. We’ve also made it through our first week as husband and wife! Go us.)
The rest of the day was spent shopping! We completed the bulk of our Crate & Barrel and Macy’s registries.
MAGNETIC measuring cups and spoons. They stick together so the set is nice and neat!
Gravy boat and olive oil mister!
Wine rack! (That will be mounted to the wall eventually. Right, Tim?)
A teeny pot that matches the rest of our set:
I also did a bit of personal shopping after my haircut, mostly for our honeymoon cruise next week.
Cute green sundress, black knit skirt, two tank tops, and a white knit shrug (which is more of a wear-to-work piece to go over my sleeveless dresses to make them a bit more appropriate.) I’m not a big fan of Old Navy’s winter clothes, but I LOVE their summer stuff. Super cheap, too!
Less cheap, but also awesome? I found a lucy store!
I finally broke down and bought a pair of running shorts. I love that these are cute and high quality, but come to just above the knee. With the way my body is built, I don’t think I’ll ever wear booty shorts for running. Love these, though!
In other news? I LOVE HUMMUS. I’d tried hummus once, a long time ago, and I didn’t like it. It was freezing cold and, well, not good. But tonight we went out to dinner and got a hummus and pita appetizer and it was to die for. The hummus was warm and garlicky and had chili oil on it and I think I love it now. Hooray!
What’s something you didn’t like until you gave it a second chance?
