Photo overload? Wait 'til the professional photographer's pictures come in 3-4 weeks!
I'm still on cloud nine right now -- it'll be a while until it wears off, I'm sure.
Money savings tip #1: I did my own hair, make-up, manicure and pedicure. ($0 vs. $200)

We're getting so close to wedding day and there's still so much to do!
I wanted to write a quick update in case you were worried about my long absence. If you've been following my Facebook page, you already know I'm still alive and will be updating soon. :)
Wedding festivities start this Friday with the Mehndi and Sangeet. Saturday is the ceremony and reception, and then (!) I'll be able to have some time to update you on all the details (including lots of pictures!).

October is my favorite month.
Pops of red, orange and yellow in the trees.
Chilly breezy weather.
The month of our wedding anniversary (!!!).
Football season in full swing.
What more can you ask for?
In all the excitement of watching football, those pink shoes and gloves reminded me that October is also an important month for something more important than the pretty trees and a chilly breeze. It's the month of breast cancer awareness.
Then I started to think about the amazing women in my life who have fought the war of breast cancer, but did not live to tell their stories. I know one very inspirational woman who is a survivor. This month is dedicated to her. This month is to help women like her live to tell their stories of surviving their battle against breast cancer, so that they can enjoy the colorful trees and the clean, crisp breeze of fall.
I'm donating $50 from each sale of the Mini Ruche in Bubblegum Pink Leather to Susan G. Komen for the Cure this month.

You know, when I first started looking into getting a pug, I knew I wanted a little fatty named Hubert. I wanted him to wear a monocle and top hat, and bark with a British accent. He would wear a black bow tie collar and a cummerbund. He would fetch me a glass of wine on a silver platter on command.
For three years, I just had a fatty Hubert who snorted and snored. All the time. He brings his slobbery rope to me for a game of tug-of-war every once in a while in between long naps. He can do a handful of fun tricks, which are always a crowd pleaser.
But then! I found SillyBuddy and the cutest bow tie collars. And things were lining up for ole Liz Lemon. I mean for me. I quote shows a lot when I speak. Though I try not to when I blog, I can't help it sometimes. It happens.
I didn't get the black bow tie collar, because I was heavily influenced by Boy's preference to get a pop of color, like red.
It makes him look a little less pretentious. :)
p.s. He was pretty tired at the end of this photo shoot.
