Big Plans... Brought down :(

Hey all!

Just wanted to do a quick post to let you know I probably won't get to my Style File this week. I know, I know, bad habit? I really did plan on doing it. Unfortunately, if Hurricane Irene decides to continue on her current projected path we will probably be traveling away from here on Friday.

I'll keep you posted! And maybe i'll be able to squeeze in a hurricane style file... I'm thinking something that will look fabulous soaking wet and windblown! ;)

Style File 8/21/11

For our third anniversary, Brad and I ran off to Washington DC for the weekend. We took AmTrak there and back. We decided it was way easier than bothering with traffic and parking in the city.

We had so so SO much fun! We really crammed in a lot of stuff over the two and a half days we were there. One of the big things we did was go see Shear Maddness. It's a little murder mystery play. It was so funny and so entertaining (albeit mildly inappropriate at times). If you're ever in DC I recommend going to see it. It shows in the Theater Lab in the Kennedy Center.

Anyway, on to my style file. I wore this dress to go see the play. For our particular show, it was  a bit dressy. But that's ok because it was fun to dress up! I felt so girly and pretty in this dress. And that's what you're supposed to feel like on your anniversary, right? After the show we ate at Bertucci's Italian resturant. We ate at one in Boston and loved it. As luck would have it there was one right across the street from our hotel!

 I apologize for the semi poor quality of the photo, it came from my phone. We couldn't take a real camera into the theater with us. Anyway, this is on the terrace of the Kennedy Center. I love the skyline in the background.

Run Down:
Earrings (sorry you can't see them!): Gift from the hubs for our anniversary
Necklace: High school graduation gift from my grand parents
Dress: thrifted (five bucks!)
Shoes: Target (clearance rack for five bucks!)

Boston Pics Part 3

O.M.G. I am horrible at this!

I did actually sit down to post pictures a couple of times, but blogger ate them. So I thought I would try again...

Here's the final installment of the Boston pics:
 Reception Venue for Gordon and Thea's wedding.
 Me and my bestie (with diet coke, i promise).
 All of us ladies. (Anna, me, Bekah)
 Anna and Jeremy!
 Matt and Bekah!
 All the boys (Matt, Jonathan, Brad, Jeremy)

 The first dance... awww...
 Oh, the boys all grown up and married and stuff... (Matt, Jeremy, Gordon, Brad).

 The day after the wedding, we Matt and Bekah, Brad and I, with Jonathan went to explore Boston a bit. We decided to walk to the freedom trail.

 The next day Brad and I went to tour the Sam Adam's Brewery:

 Apparently they make this really really expensive brandy-like beer. It sells for 150 bucks and comes in a bottle like that.
 For lunch we went to the Cheers bar!

 Building at MIT.

 Harvard (I'm pretty sure...)
 The T!
 The Inn we stayed at.

 USS Constitution.

 Boston Public Garden

So serene there...

There's the end of the Boston pics (finally). Wish I could go back. :)
