It's Friday (Roundups)! Who Said Yes This WeekPhoto credit: Flickr

Monday marked the two year anniversary of when my husband proposed to me. I’m not sure if many people actually celebrate their engagement anniversary — but we brought out the bubbly anyway. ;) Did you recently get engaged? If so — we’ve got over 3,500+ lovely vendors for you to browse! You can also check out some of their interviews, features and real weddings in today’s roundup.

First Friday Roundups for Breast Cancer Awareness MonthPhoto credit: Flickr

It may be the start of Autumn, but it’s also National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I was reminded of this on Wednesday night when my husband dragged me out of the house for the Miami HEAT’s Red, White & Pink scrimmage game. The whole stadium was covered in pink as the city of Miami got a sneak peek inside what’s next for the team. Have you had your annual check up?

Happy (Yakiniku) Friday Roundups!

Some may find the concept of having to cook your own food at a restaurant slightly ridiculous. Defeats the purpose of dining out, right? After all — you are paying to have the chef cook for you. Well, this week I decided to give the idea the benefit of the doubt and bought a Groupon for a local Japanese yakiniku restaurant.

Yakiniku translates to grilled meat and is similar to a Western BBQ. The only difference is that you’re in a restaurant with a large grilling pit in the middle of your table. You’re given bite-size pieces of meat and vegetables, prepared by the chefs — only you’re the one cooking it over real burning flames! You’re pretty much paying for the experience, and honestly, it was kind of fun. :)

So! Let’s grill on to this week’s roundups:

Guess Who Got Lucky this Week? Happy Friday -- Roundups!

Guess who had an epic $27 win at the Hardrock Casino this week? Well, epic in the sense that I actually hate gambling, but for some reason I reluctantly decided to slip a $10 bill into the Playboy slot machine that night. Of course, I lost it. All. And immediately wanted to go home and sulk because I’m frugal like that. But hubby wasn’t quite ready yet, and insisted on playing.

Then out of the corner of my eye I spotted a bright pink Bridesmaids machine (you know, the movie?!) and naturally dragged him over to it. Needless to say, we walked away with $27. I’m pretty convinced my awesome wedding energy is what triggered the good luck! Hubby wasn’t so convinced, but treated me to ice cream anyway with our new found fortune. :)

See who else got lucky this week:

Has this week been a whirlwind or what? My husband received not-so-lovely news early last week that sent us packing to hit the road as quickly as possible for a long eight hour drive back to his home state. Thankfully, I managed to keep things under wraps with WeddingLovely while I was away (phew!) but am oh so happy to finally be back home. It’s safe to say that I’ll be doing absolutely nothing but catching up on some Zzz and unwinding this weekend. ;)

 Thanks to Labor Day Weekend -- Friday's Already Here! And so are Roundups! We hope you enjoyed your Labor Day weekend as much as we did! The hubs and I spent Monday afternoon at Matheson Hammock Park treating ourselves to a well deserved picnic. Our bellies were already stuffed from the leftovers we had from Sunday night’s feast — ribs, potato salad, baked beans and corn on the cob! But we still had a little room left to sip on a bottle of red and nibble on a few sweet treats while watching the sunset. ;)

Get caught up on all things lovely:

Good News Friday -- Friday Roundups are Back!Photo Credit: Flickr

Hurrah! We know it’s been a while since we’ve posted Friday roundups. What can we say, other than that we’ve been keeping busy with lots of new and exciting ventures! We’re focusing on growing our community like crazy, and recently hired a lovely new Community Manager. She’s writing this by the way… hello :) And now I can come out of third person! I am so excited to be working with all of our lovely couples and vendors, and encourage you to drop me a line if you have any questions, concerns, comments, feedback, anything really!

Next week I’ll be in NYC for the Brooklyn Beta conference! I’m so excited and I wanted to see whether I could run a meetup but I’m not sure I have time. Though if you want to grab coffee or lunch, ping me!

News roundup for the week!

Have a lovely weekend!

Dog rescue complete! I drove up to Oregon (11 hour drive) to rescue my grandparent’s dog, who was adopted and then de-adopted and taken to the shelter instead. Quite an interesting few days — I started driving at 4:45am, got Molly, camped that night on the Oregon/California border, drove through the redwoods the next morning, and then I left my wallet at a farmstand and didn’t realize until 87 miles later. Not to mention, I only realized it when I was pulling over for gas. Quite… annoying.

But wallet was still there, I didn’t run out of gas driving back up (all panicky, making plans to barter the beer in my trunk for gas money if I needed), and I got home safely in the end.

So that was my week — how was yours? :P

News and articles from the week!

I’ve had an interesting week — my grandparent’s are moving into assisted living across the country, and a neighbor adopted their dog… and then promptly decided they couldn’t keep her and abandoned her at a shelter instead. So next week I’ll be driving up 11 hours to go get her.

So, guess as of next week, I’ll have a dog to go along with my kitty!

Have a lovely weekend!
