As I mentioned in my Paris post, the fig pizza we had at Pink Flamingo was one of our favorite meals of our honeymoon. Despite the fact that we were in France, our favorite meals in Paris included that pizza and the sushi at Miss Ko. Honestly, the French probably should have kicked us out of the city. They didn’t, thank goodness. But anyway – our first wedding anniversary is on Sunday, so I thought recreating that pizza would be a great way for me to celebrate on the blog. [Read more…]
Well now that I’ve FINALLY covered that wedding of ours here on the blog, it’s about time for me to tell you about that honeymoon we took.
That sweet, glorious, perfect, unbelievable honeymoon. The one we took A YEAR ago. Woops. It’s not like I didn’t want to tell you about it, it’s just that I wanted to talk about the wedding first (because we need to go in order), and well … because life happens. But here we are! And don’t you worry – I’m the kind of person who takes notes during her travels so she can remember everything she ate, so I’ll be able to pull those memories out of my brain thanks to my trusty iPhone notes. Near the end of our trip we also spent some time during one of our last meals filling in the gaps of my notes to write down what we did between everything we ate (because I guess that stuff is important too). We realized that we could hardly remember what all we had done at the beginning of the trip, so we had to get it all written down before it became totally impossible to remember. It’s a good thing we did, because otherwise this post would not be nearly as thorough. [Read more…]
Whoa, life has been crazy! This past month has been a whirlwind of wedding preparations, planning my honeymoon, fabric shopping for my wedding dress, planning my bestie’s bachelorette party, holiday time with family, and trying to stay sane in the midst of it all. For Easter with my family I made this monster of a cake (again), because … duh, it’s the best cake. It was just as phenomenal as the first time. The other day I went to NYC with my two Maids of Honor to pick out some fabric for my wedding dress. My one maid of honor is designing it for me, which is so amazing. (If you’re in need of a wedding dress and want one that is one-of-a-kind, you should definitely check her out.) So we had a great time looking at expensive fabrics, walking up and down Fashion Avenue, having a Fancy Lady Lunch and getting delightfully tipsy just before boarding the bus back to Philly. All in all, a perfect day with friends. Robert and I have also mostly finalized our honeymoon plans! We will be heading to Paris and then to St. Malo (in the Brittany region of France), so if you have any suggestions for me about what we should eat/see/do, please let me know. Here are a few things that have kept me sane this month: [Read more…]
