Austenland is a new movie that just came out. My friend and fellow Austen-nerd showed me the trailer and we just about died in hysterical glee (you know I love Kerri Russell). Then we saw it was a book first and immediately had to buy it. I just finished the short novel, and it was great—charming and funny, albeit slightly predictable. Can’t wait to geek out and watch the movie next.
Most people do crazy diets before they get married and then relax and eat what they want after… well, M and I just couldn’t handle dieting before the wedding. I put the scales away and let myself eat what I needed to get through all the wedding planning. Now that the craziness is over, we both feel we need to clean up our diets and get healthy. So we’re going to try the Paleo Diet. I’ve been reading a lot about it, and will hopefully have some fun recipes to share soon. If you have done this diet, or are currently eating this way, send me your tips and recipes! (This photo was taken at the Portland Famer’s Market. I LOVED this market so much.)
It’s been great being home and getting back into our routines. Last weekend we clean up and started to organize all the gifts. I found some room in our tiny kitchen, but we’ll be moving most of it bit by bit from my parents house. I can’t wait to try out some of my new gadgets like my Kitchen Aid mixer (swoon) and my pressure cooker (I admit I’m kinda scared of that thing)! We’ve been married for 2 weeks, and it gets me every single day :] (This photo was taken when we got home from our week long road trip)
