Up until a few weeks ago, there were a handful of perfumes I’d wanted to buy for the longest time. The only thing stopping me was their price tags. Designer fragrances are pretty expensive, and I was worried: what if I didn’t end up loving them? What a waste. Of course, I could’ve tried ’em out in department or beauty supply stores (and did), but felt like I had to wear the perfumes for at least a week before I really knew. (Any other picky girls out there?!)

Last night was the best. Mitch and I met Erica, one of our very best friends from back home, downtown at Volare. It was one of those dinners during which the waiter has to ask you three+ times whether you’re ready to order, haha. We just couldn’t stop talking and laughing!

(And no worries. We ordered quite a bit of wine during the ordering process. ;))

Since the big move, I’ve been in shorts and t-shirts every single day. We’ve just had so much to do–from unpacking and moving boxes around the house to spackling the walls and rearranging what little furniture we have. ;) It’s been really fun, but at the same time, it can be tiring and a bit discouraging at times. I feel like we often work ALL DAY, and that things don’t look that much different when we’re done. But I guess that’s how it goes with getting a new home set up. It takes time!
