Perkie and Mowgli

For a long time we were one woman and one beloved golden retriever mix, but we met the best man and now all three of us live in Brooklyn. This is now the story of how two people and one dog become a little family - and a blog with more dog photos than you probably care about.

I just found this old photo of Steve and Mowgli in my phone and I can’t even handle Mowgli’s upside down smile.

Bloomingdale’s Friends & Family

I ordered a plaid cashmere scarf, a pair of Frye boots, and the gift I will give Steve on our wedding day.

Pretty successful shopping morning.

We had so much fun celebrating tallgirltales at her wedding this weekend. She was a stunning bride and she and her new husband are such a great fit for each other (and can really cut a rug on the dance floor).

I am so happy that all my friends have married great guys!

Unfortunately my ankle wasn’t up to the task of wearing heels to the reception (I wore them to the ceremony) so I swapped out heels for Tieks so I could dance!

We miraculously made it to Chicago yesterday with a minimum of drama and a marginally delayed flight. We are out in the Chicago burbs for tallgirltales' wedding and I had a perfect suburban morning where we went to Chick Fil A for breakfast and then I strolled the aisles of a giant, clean, stocked, quiet Target.

Steve is now watching the Penn State - Northwestern game (I am abstaining, we are terrible this season and I don’t need to arrive at the wedding furious at my future husband over college football) and I am leisurely getting ready.

I had never seen two bands until my friends started getting married. Many of my friends are Jewish and as I understand it, you aren’t supposed to have gems in your wedding band for a Jewish wedding. So a few of my friends have 2 wedding bands - one plain one used for the ceremony, and one with diamonds.  

I’ve noticed that my friends with 2 wedding bands wear their plain bands (usually without their engagement ring) for things like exercise classes, travel, etc. and it just seemed like a really practical option. I also have a few friends who had to stop wearing their diamond bands for awhile when they had newborns, because apparently their skin is so delicate that the prongs from the diamond band scratched the baby!

It helped that we got a great price on my plain band too.  Blue Nile had a code the other week for $100 off $200 or more.  The retail price on my band was exactly $200 so we got it for $100!!!

Steve is at the last game and made me turn on the tv at home to watch. I grew up a Red Sox fan but damn if this isn’t making me a little emotional. Nobody tell my dad.
