Weekend Recap

Happy Monday girls! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Corey and I did but boy am I wishing that it was a little longer. Isn't that always the case, though? Friday night, we had a casual dinner with Corey's parents to celebrate their anniversary. I wore this:

Afterwards, we drank lots of wine and I painted my nails Essie's lilacism. I have about 40 different shades of pink, peach, and coral polishes and even a couple reds for Christmas and Valentine's Day but I don't think I've ever done a purple. I am loving the lavender shade. 

On Saturday, I cleaned our apartment (this is an every week task) then cooked a Cinco de Mayo dinner.  We had chunky guacamole (I posted that recipe for that here). I made delicious roasted tapatillos enchiladas. Burritos, tacos, taco salads, and fajitas are the extent of my ability to cook Mexican food so I was a little nervous. The recipe was pretty labor intensive but so worth it because it was delicious! I'll be sharing it with you soon. 

Sunday, we were awoken at 6:00 am by the sound of a jackhammer doing repairs on our street. Its moments like these where I don't enjoy living in a major city. I did a couple loads of laundry then headed to yoga. Afterwards, Corey and I had lunch then went shopping at Jersey Gardens, which is the largest outlet mall I've ever been to (200 stores in one building!) I had the best time at the Banana Republic outlet. 

My wedding dress will arrive at our apartment on Friday. I am beyond excited! I'm not allowed to open the infamous Kleinfeld box until two Saturdays from now (May 19) when I go for my first fitting. My veil arrived so I'll have my full wedding day ensemble to wear when I go, though. I am really excited over the veil because I had a nightmare a couple weeks ago that it got lost in shipping and somehow I didn't notice until I was standing in the narthex of our church. My wedding planner was making a frantic phone call to UPS and I was crying. So I did the only logical thing I knew to do and called Kleinfeld immediately the next morning. They told me it was in transit from the designer, which of course made me more nervous because I was sure it was going to get lost. Then, I got the call last week that it had arrived safely to the store and would be there for my first fitting. 


  1. Sounds like a great weekend! How exciting about your dress coming in aaaand that recipe sounds delish!
