…It’s been 2 months.

Justin and I got married 2 months ago today! Sadly he is not here with me to celebrate this however… he did write me TWO letters that I received today! I got my first one on the 4th and then 2 today…
What’s that? You want an update? OK…
The first letter was a little sad, he said it was pretty hard and that they yell at him to get up at 5 am, only to have to go out in the 40 degree Cape May weather in shorts and t-shirts! However the next letters were on a much better note… he has taken on some extra responsibility as the co-organizer of the recruit’s watch schedule. He also said that he is getting more used to the schedule, and weather. However… despite the efforts of both his mother and I, he had yet to get any of our letters :( (well as of the 7th) mail is SUPER SLOW!
We are closing in on the amount of time he will be away, and I am packing our things for the big move… to who knows where.
I will post pictures of the painting projects later.
Another reason that today was FANTASTIC… we got our wedding photo proofs!

If you haven’t seen April’s work at Once in Every Life, you absolutely should. She does GREAT work and is SO fun to work with.

That’s probably all for now… Happy 2 months to Us! What a great day!!

…I’m craving these dresses.

Ok I don’t know if you have ever heard of this website… but if you have just humor me.

Rent the Runway
Ok so here’s the deal… you go to this website… and sign up (yes you have to log in… but it’s worth it!) And you can RENT dresses straight from designers in New York… for a mere fraction of what it’s worth!
Sweet Jamie told me about this… and then a week later I read about it in Real Simple Magazine… It’s awesome!
Here’s an example…
How much would you LOVE to look like this at your next big event?! Well guess what from RTR, you can!!! For the low low price of $135!!! That’s right, less than $200 for an entire outfit that is worth $1090!
So how does it work?
  • You tell them your size
    • and they send you 2 dresses (just to make sure it fits)
  • You tell them the day of your event
    • and they send it 2-3 days in advance
  • You’re having RED WINE?
    • don’t worry you can get $5 insurance to cover your butt ;)
  • Event over? You pack it up and send it back…
You cannot go wrong! This will allow you to look like you have spent a fortune on yourself, and really you have spent less than you would at a local department store. AND let’s be honest, how many times would you EVER wear it again?!
Get shopping!
