American Ladies & British Gents...

5.19.2011


Hello friends!!! Is it all right if I call you that? Hope so cause I'm leaving it =) Well this week has been eventful but again, not quite sure if I captured all of it... must take more pics!!!

Thur. 12- Since hub's and I hadn't really purchased many pots, pans, and other necessarry kitchen items, we had been eating out or getting take out a lot! So much for saving money hu? But it's just so easy to do when your surrounded by so many yummy food places and I want to try them all!!! But anywho, we finally got our act together (sort of) and made our first home cooked meal... our favorite... shepard's pie!!!


perfectly toasted...
Fri. 13- Also known as denim day... also some dear friend's house warming party!!! Being the good little guest I am, I decided I would dazzle their taste buds with a really delish stuffed mushroom recipe from my all time fave cookbook.  I also had a killer outfit but forgot to have pics taken of me... oh well. Oh yea so when I arrived at the flat, I tripped on my heels and dropped my tray of mushrooms =( Talk about an entrance hu? But not to worry, friends quickly helped me scoop them off the floor and into the oven quoting the 5 second rule and that heat kills germs... we ate them and they were good!!! Oh and also, we pre-celebrated our 6 month wedding anniv. (yea I celebrate monthaversaries!) with some good old pizza and red wine, cause we're fancy!

before the floor & oven...
i'm such a good wife!!!
not the killer outfit i swear...
Sat. 14- Happy 6 months with hubs!!! I can't believe we've been married for half of a year already... it's nuts! We spent the morning together cuddling and then headed off to meet Shelby, Martin, Kathryn, and Michael for a triple date! These are my american friends (the gals) that I met nearly 4 yrs ago when I interned over here. The guys are brit... of course... and I couldn't help but smile at the fact that when we all first met, we were unmarried ladies. Now Kathryn and Michael have been married for about 3 yrs, hubs and I for half a yr., and Shelby is engaged to get married this Oct! Hooray for british men!!! Our date consisted of Richmond's May Fair, Pimm's at the local pub, and whole lot of german meats!!! It was magical =)

happy 6 months baby!!!


rings that bond us together...

Sun. 15- Just a lazy day... not much to report except we did a 5 mile walk, ate dinner at a cute little italian place just downstairs, and watched the kings speech... and yea it was pretty good!

Mon. 16- Finally found english muffins over here!!! Yep that's right folks, they aren't really english at all... who knew! Had a yummy breakfast after my run and worked on some projects...


Tue. 17- Kind of a repeat of Mon. ran, yummy breakfast, looked for more jobs online, and applied to some part time positions at local clothing and vintage stores... my new obsession/mission, getting enough money for an i phone!!! Hub's said if I can cover the cost of it and monthly service, it's mine!!! Hence the looking for any job now =)


Wed. 18- Kind of a repeat of Mon. and Tue... hmmm am I in a rut??? I had some success with the part time jobs and even managed to snag a couple of interviews... i phone I can almost feel you in my happy little hands already!!! Till next thur...
