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.

At my first Pittsburgh wedding I got to experience the joy of a cookie table and then attended a comfy clothes after party complete with an indoor cornhole set.

Also, nearly everyone at the wedding knew all the choreography for the Cupid shuffle, that “wiggle” song, etc. Is there something I am missing that I don’t know any of these? Where and how do people learn them? I felt so left out!

Headed to the last wedding before ours!

I just emailed Steve a list of people to invite to my 31st birthday party next month

The invitation list includes 3 babies, and we made sure to select a stroller-friendly location for our afternoon beers (because afternoon beers get a higher turnout than evening beers these days).

I really love my 30s so far, but they sure are different from my 20s.

I take back what I said about the pee-in-the-hamper incident being funny

After one wash my clothes smell WORSE … The pee-pertrator has been sent to buy some enzyme laundry soap that the Internet tells me will neutralize the odor.

Looks like I am going to be catching up on all my laundry today …

Because SOMEONE urinated in my laundry hamper last night after drunkenly mistaking it for the toilet.

We had a little date night to celebrate the 100 day countdown. Steve wore the exact same shirt and grandpa sweater he had on the night we met (unintentionally) and I wore a gray sweater and J. Crew Minnie pants, as I did the night we met and every other night when it is cold.

There’s nothing super exciting about this outfit, but I think it will be my fall/winter uniform this year - an Everlane fall seed stitch raglan sweater, J.Crew minnie pants, J.Crew necklace to make the sweater look more like a sweater and less like a sweatshirt, and my beloved tieks (snakeskin here). I know that you guys are of split opinions about tieks - I find them to be the most comfortable flats of all time.

I gave up on wearing dresses last year after it got cold because ugh, tights.  I’m pretty sure I will be making the same choice this year.

Amy Poehler as Kaitlin

RICK! RICK! RICK!

MY ACTUAL VERY FAVORITE. All that joyous, ridiculous energy, exactly the way Girls Aren’t Supposed To Be* and so hilarious and awkward in just the right way.  

* Knowing more now about Amy Poehler and her feelings towards girls and girls being awesome and girls being told they can be awesome even when society’s telling them not to be —— all has made me look at this whole bit in wonderful new ways.
