Justin and I were so excited to be getting dressed up and going to our very first formal at Oxford. We had cocktails before dinner then we all sat down and ate a 3 course meal. We can't wait for the Ball in December when Justin gets to dress in his tux and me in a ball gown. Time to call the fairy godmother to hook me up!!

Tuesday, October 20, 2009
Well it has been one month and we have survived. Justin is now in school and I am searching for a job where I won't be bored out of my mind for the next 4 years... Justin is quite the social butterfly "but that is not a shocker" and is making tons of friends. I half to keep reminding myself that I am living in England and not in the US anymore. the buildings are so old and have so much character and detail. The flowers here are amazing and are still blooming in 35 degree weather. The buses are great... so far ;) and the shopping... Lets just say I walk in and want everything.. Everyone is in style and everyone is skinny because they walk and bike every where. The food is great and I love the pubs. They have such a great charm about them. With the food, wine, decor and candles on the tables. It feels so cozy and at home. I am still nesting and and trying to make my house a home for my husband. It is tough because all we have are the clothes on our back and the 4 suitcases we could bring :). Oh and did I mention!!! We are going to a Ball in December and the theme is Charley in the Chocolate factory. I can't wait to go and shop for a ball gown!! I will post photos up in December of our fancy night out. I told Justin no bus we are hiring a car to take us :) How often do you get to go to a dance as a adult? I am 31 and well lets just say I don't see this happening often in my life :) Hope you readers are doing well and are enjoying the Fall just as much as I am!!!
