Dhoonya Dance

A year ago my friend sent me a coupon for Bollywood dance classes at a studio by my apartment. I'm not a huge fan of all of these deal websites because I feel like people buy coupons for things they didn't need or want in the first place and then struggle to use the "deal" before it expires. But for some reason I put my reservations aside and purchased the deal to try out three classes with Dhoonya Dance. 

A year later I performed in their annual recital with the Tech 3 class. I even joined another dance company that I became exposed to through the studio. I am so thankful I purchased that deal and brought dance back into my life.

Belated Pics from Steak's 25th Birthday

Back in April we celebrated Steak's 25th birthday with frozen custard at lunch in the city. But the main event took place a few days before his birthday. I took him to dinner at Zaytinya and pretended to be ill and asked to pop by my sister's apartment before we went to a movie. Little did he know our friends were waiting for him at her apartment. The room was dark when we walked in and everyone shouted SURPRISE! I've never seen Steak so shocked. It was the best birthday we've celebrated together so far.

New York City

On the bus early Saturday morning.

On Saturday, Steak and I took the Bolt Bus to NYC. We arrived midday, just in time to meet his Godmother in NYC's Diamond District. After purchasing our wedding rings, we had a full day to eat our way through the city and visit Brooklyn for the first time.

 Can't wait to wear this ring forever.

Flowers for my co-workers.

Flowers from my parents.

Roses from Steak.

My desk at work.

Roses and tulips at home and two bottles of prosecco.

The cards (and magnet) we exchanged. We're too much alike.

Hellu Andru!

Just saw a recent contest entry from and it was amazing!

Too bad I didn't win (probably have to enter to do that) but I still want it. I know it's not something essential, but the Andru charger by Gen has to be the "cutest" tech gadget that I actually want to buy.

I know it's just a charger, but really can't have enough of those lying around. It's also a really cool way of showing off your Android geekness. Check it out on the Gen website

Engagement Photo Weekend in Disney

Steak and I went to Walt Disney World over Halloween weekend to get some engagement photos taken. After primping all morning to prepare for the perfect pictures it began to downpour and I ended up in a Mickey poncho and matching Mickey Mouse flip flops from the gift shop.

Luckily the sun came out and we were able to get a couple good shots.
