SURPRISE! Hello! Hi! Bonjour! *Happy Dance*
So. I thought I’d be able to handle a blog, moving, a new job, planning a wedding, and other things—I was wrong.
At any rate, I’m here today. I attempted to update every so often on the Facebook page, but I knew I had to get back to the blog as soon as possible.
As you might have read (via Facebook) I got married on September 8! I am so glad wedding planning is over. I’m not the planning type, and yes, several times I understood why people run off and get married in Las Vegas. Thankfully we had stellar friends and family that he helped us plan our wedding day; I’ll blog about a couple wedding clothing details (my dress, bridesmaids’ attire) a little later this week.
Last night was my first church service as Mrs. Leonardo. I am so excited that an awesome church was a part of this whole marriage thing. I went to the same church from 8 days old until Julyish and I was little bit sad that I had to start over—join new ministries, make new friends, and all that jazz.
I haven’t organized my closets in our new house yet. I have all of my clothes, shoes, and accessories in boxes. It’s not a pretty sight. I’ve always been a fan of peplum, and the peplum blouses and tops I already own are vintage. Peplum became “trendy” again, so if you’re a fan of peplum styles you can find them wherever you shop. I found this peplum zip up top at Marshall’s. It’s by Valerie Bertinelli and was $25. The polka dot skirt is by Babeau and is from Nordstrom. Babeau brand—love them. I discovered the skirt while roaming through Nordstrom on the search for wedding shoes. Babeau makes comfy cotton knit separates and I became a fan after feeling the material. Three weeks ago I went to the Alameda Antique Faire to find décor for the wedding, and on the way out I saw this old leather attaché/briefcase looking thing and bought it for $5. The shoes are old. I had them in my TO GOODWILL box, but I had to yank them out because I couldn’t find another pair of shoes to wear. Ha!
