Sometimes you want to go....Where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came.

I love it when family comes to visit. Mom and Kari came out last Saturday, September 18 for a little visit. We started the trip off right with brunch at Freds.

After doing some wedding dress fabric shopping we went to Serendipity for dinner. Kari has been wanting to go to Serendipity since her first trip to New York, and we finally made it happen this time! I so love Serendipity.

We went down to New Jersey for dinner at Jeffrey's house on Sunday. We had a fun little train ride down there and then went to church with Jeffrey. It was a good day :)

Monday, we headed to Boston. Due to traffic concerns in Manhattan, Mom and Kari left for Boston around noon and I jumped on a train after work and met them about half to Boston. It was a fun road trip.

We spent all day Tuesday in Boston. We took one of the hop on hop off tours. It was nice because we learned a lot about Boston and didn't have to worry about driving in the city or taking the subway. After riding the bus for awhile we jumped of and had lunch at Cheers.

We ended up back on the bus and road around until dinner time. We ended up having dinner at the Union Oyster House which is the oldest restaurant in the United States.

We finished our Boston trip with a Red Sox game! It was fun going to Fenway to see a game. Sorry, I'm still a Yankee fan!

Dad joined us Thursday and became the designated photographer. Since I don't have his pictures I will finish this later :)

November 13, 2010 - London, England

Friday, September 3, 2010

We are getting married on November 13th, 2010 in the London England Temple. According to that's 70 days from today (Yikes!)

The game plan is to have a small civil ceremony in New Jersey on November 12 (in London you have to be civilly married before you can be sealed in the temple) and then take the red eye over to London and get sealed that evening. I'm really excited to be going to London for the first time. It has been a dream of mine for along time and I still can't believe it's finally coming true :)

There will be an open house at my parents house in Washington during Thanksgiving weekend and then another one in New Jersey the following weekend.

There's lots to do and not much time to do it in, but I feel like we have gotten a lot done over the past three weeks.

August 13th, 2010 - A Night to Remember

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

So, I know this is very late, but I thought I would post about it anyways. In case some of you don't know I got engagement a couple of weeks ago.

And here is how it happened...

Jeff picked me up from the train after work and surprised me with a little trip to a day spa. We both got massages and then I got a mani/pedi. It was a lovely surprise after a long week. We then headed back to his place to change for dinner. After I walked into the house I made my way to the living room to slip off the little slippers they had given me at the day spa. I hadn't even removed the slippers when I noticed that the dining room table was covered in flowers, rose petals, and candles. By the time I had made it to the table for a closer inspection Jeff was right beside me and down on one knee and...he asked me to marry him!

We then headed over to Restaurant Nicholas for dinner. Jeff had arranged for a special menu for us for the evening which included lobster (one of my favorite dishes). He also designed a special drink for us to celebrate the occasion. It was truly an amazing evening and one I will remember forever.
