Happy Quarter-Century Birthday to ME!

Sorry for the crappy camera phone pic, but check out what Mr. Gloss bought me for my big day....

....a big shiny new sailboat!

Our birthdays (6 days and 2 years apart) fell so close to the end of our wedding that we elected to keep down the birthday spending this year in order to more seriously save for our first home. Plus, we just had a fabulous party with everyone we love and got loads of fabulous gifts about a month ago :).
So, we headed down to Newport, RI this weekend for the International Boat Show, hit up my absolute favorite sandwich place, climbed around on a few million dollar yachts and lived vicariously through those who were actually buying them :). The weather was gorgeous all day and then we met up with some friends for a low-key dinner.
Mr. Gloss was also vowed to be my personal chef for the entire weekend and he makes a mean breakfast sandwich :)

Have any of your typical holidays or spending habits changed to account for wedding spending?

@Newport Nuptials - Its actually in Bristol and called the 'Wrap Shack' they have a wrap called the Bristolian which is fried calamari with garlic mayo, mozz cheese and greens and it is SO good.

Happy birthday and congrats on getting married.

I've been reading your blog for a while now and I was checking in hoping to see a post wedding update and photos. I got married last year and still love to follow everything wedding. Have you thought about/started the married name change process yet? I put together the research I did for my own name change and have been blogging wedding and newlywed stuff at http://www.mrsforever.com if you need some help with the process. It's a great resource.

Please tell other new brides if you find it helpful.
