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 made turkey bolognese with zucchini noodles for dinner last night and it was A+.

My mom gave me a spiralizer earlier this summer and for some reason it took me until September to try it.

This recipe was relatively easy (a bit of prep work required and the recipe calls for a spiralizer and a food processor, although you could make it without either) and was really hearty and delicious while surprisingly low calorie.  

Click the photo for a link to the recipe. I made one tweak - I used an entire 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes rather than one cup of crushed.  I think one cup of tomatoes would have led to a relatively dry sauce.

Found while backing up photos from my current iPhone: the first photo Steve and I (and Mowgli!) ever took together.

Yesterday I helped host a baby shower for one of my favorites.

I went to target by Barclays Center on a rainy Saturday and it was such a cluster I am now sitting alone at a bar drinking a Brooklyn Lager.

We made a recent decor change to the living room - new throw pillow covers. Mowgli likes snoozing on the new ones (especially the fluffy white ones, which are sheepskin) more than the old ones!

Just ordered : gold iPhone6!

Work gives me $325 every two years for a new phone (I also got an iPhone5 the day it came out!) - the 64 GB is mine for a whopping $30 (Verizon’s upgrade fee).

My job has a lot of downsides but the free iPhone thing is a definite perk.

Steve’s version of the aftermath of our wedding tasting.

Rocking a truly epic food baby after our wedding tasting.

It was amazing/I feel disgusting.

Random Question:

Did anyone get a Blue Nile promo code for $100 off $200 that they will not be using?

If so, would you please share it with me?

Thanks!

Last night Steve’s friend stayed with us because he had a job interview in the city, and we went to Paulie Gee’s (our favorite pizza place in NYC, located in Greenpoint) and pigged out on pizza.

This morning I went to SoulCycle to try to mitigate some of the damage.

Tonight we go to our wedding tasting where we taste the entire wedding menu and like 14 wines.  We have been advised to wear stretchy pants.

Tomorrow morning I get up at the butt crack of dawn to catch a 7:25 AM train to Philadelphia. Let’s just not think about that part and think about tonight’s pig emoji gorgefest.
