Do we really only have two weddings to go to this year?? That seems crazy given the 6 we attended last year. We have one more in LA during Thanksgiving weekend but a couple weeks ago we headed to our old haunts in Houston to attend the wedding of our good friends Samir and Rachel! It was so much fun seeing my old coworkers and getting dressed up in all the clothes we brought back from India:

Hi! Been uber busy with moving into our house (eek! OUR house!) and getting everything set up. I’m eager to have everything decorated and furnished so we can have a housewarming but I’m also trying to slow myself down with only necessities now so there’s still more to do later…and to enjoy the process. Thanks for all the great feedback on the before and afters…I’ll post more soon. Once there are no more moving boxes in the house.
But we’ve also been chugging away at the wedding planning and the big thing this month was getting out the Save the Date postcards. We used our pictures from the Engagement Shoot and put a fun twist on it. Love the way they came out…and Bear did a fabulous job on the website as well.
What do y’all think?
A couple years ago on a trip to Napa, I looked up and saw the Southwest sign and thought how cool it would be to one day take pictures at the airport with the heart and wings as a backdrop. Bear and I spent so much of the beginning of our relationship flying all over the U.S. to see each other because of work and it only seemed appropriate we honor the airline that carried us around. So my fabulous friend and wedding planner, Lush Occasions, set it up for us and with the help of Southwest and Cory Ryan, we got the photo shoot we wanted! Fun bonus: the suitcase is the same one my parents used on their honeymoon!

I wrote to Southwest about our shoot to thank them and they tweeted about us today! Our fun 15 minutes of fame!
I had my engagement makeup trial yesterday with Maris Malone Calderon. She absolutely rocks and really listened to me and gave me a look that I feel still looked like me, just a much less flawed version!
And since my makeup was done anyway and it was the 1-year anniversary of our Drinko De Mayo celebration last year to rock out on our last days of consulting life (quit and never looked back, whoo!), we decided a date night at La Sombra was in order. If you haven’t been there and you’re in town…go immediately. It’s yummers.
Have a wonderful weekend! We will be spending our time picking out tile…and carpet…and flooring…and paint!
This is my second post with the same title and how I wish I could go back in time to the first one and stay there.
Our baby boy, Trigger, passed away on Monday at 8 1/2 months old.
We are in shock and grieving and I don’t really know what to do with myself. I’ve spent hours writing to him and documenting everything so I don’t forget.
I miss him.
Bear proposed to me on Sunday in a very sweet and romantic spot – one of the very first places we ever met (and the first place we remember ever speaking to each other) on the UT campus. He even made sure I was looking my best and someone was there to capture the moment:
I get internal tickles everytime I hear the word fiance/fiancee. And I introduced him as my boyfriend today. Oops!
I couldn’t be happier.
Last night Bear led me on a scavenger hunt through our apartment, with wine refreshments to help me (please excuse the pajamas, I was in the midst of a Gilmore Girls marathon when this happened):
We celebrated with drinks and Plucker’s. This is Bear’s “This Beer Belongs to the Coolest Boyfriend In the World” mug. Very appropriate.
I think it goes without saying that I have the most thoughtful and sweetest man. Kangaroos and kiwis, here we come!
