A Few Last Things V.5


A few last things with Megan- and when you're done reading be sure to hop over to her blog. She's one of my very favorites and I can't say enough great things about her. Her Instagram feed is super dreamy too. Prepare to be inspired!

Last thing you cooked: The weather is beautiful and our apartment has an awesome grill on the roof, so I have been grilling everything these days. My husband and I grilled a huge flank steak over the weekend and we've been having leftovers ever since! I marinated it in olive oil, garlic, and some gluten-free soy sauce and it was awesome (especially on a salad for lunch the next day with cilantro balsamic vinaigrette)!

Last time you felt nervous: I'm a huge Game of Thrones fan, and Tyrion and Oberyn are two of my favorite characters, so that trial by combat had me on the edge of my seat. I actually had to stay up really late to watch it because I went to see Saint Paul and the Broken Bones play in Minneapolis that night (which was awesome!), but didn't want to wait to watch it, and then of course I couldn't sleep--the entire episode was just too intense for me! But it's still my favorite show, even when it stresses me out.

Last big thing you splurged on: I bought a dress I totally didn't need a few weeks ago at an adorable little boutique in St. Paul, but even more recently, I got a new camera! I'm super excited for it to arrive next week so I can try my hand at some videos this summer.

Last gift you gave: I gave all of my bridesmaids a pair of Acute Designs' Swarovski stud earrings and a really pretty candle from Anthropologie with a note as a little wedding day thank-you gift.

Last place you vacationed to: The Dominican Republic! Last month we honeymooned at an all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana and really enjoyed swimming, walking on the beach, and drinking out of coconuts all day.

Last time you laughed until you cried: Definitely on our wedding day! The entire morning and afternoon of getting ready with my girlfriends and my mom, then taking pictures and getting to see Rob for a first look before the wedding. The entire day was just so full of joy and laughter and tons of emotion. I laughed, I cried, I laughed until I cried! It was the best.

Last blog/IG accounts you really fell in love with: I may be biased because I write for them, but I really love everything The Eighty Twenty puts out there. I think the website is beautiful and I love our shared Instagram account. Blog: http://theeightytwenty.com & Instagram: http://instagram.com/theeightytwenty
