Lately

A few insta-snaps of life lately. Follow along: @natalie_merrillyn.
My blog posting schedule may be a little sporadic lately since this week will be super crazy. Our movers are coming on Thursday and all of our family will be coming to town to celebrate Matt graduating with his MBA {woohoo!} and my birthday. We fly out to London on Sunday. Needless to say the week will be a little hectic until we land and get settled in our temp housing in London.
Thanks so much for following along!

Birthday Celebrations

I think this birthday was my best one yet.

After Matt and I got off work, we went out to dinner and walked around old town Pasadena. Afterwards, we stopped by a dessert and champagne place called Pop. I got chocolate mousse and the girliest peach drink on the menu.

After dessert, Matt completely floored me when he gave me my gifts: A MacBook Pro (!!) and a trench coat I had been eyeing (can’t wait till the fall so I can wear it.) I had been saving for a computer for a while, taking a little bit out of each paycheck, but I wasn’t expecting to get one so soon. Do you have a Mac? I’ve heard once you have one, you never go back.

Disney Weekend

Just a quick snap from our weekend– Matt surprised me with a trip to Disneyland on Saturday. :)

I tallied up the entries for the giveaway and random.org selected Leah of The Rife Observatory as the lucky winner! Congrats! Thanks to everyone who entered. Leah, look for your $35 credit to CSN Stores in your inbox. :)
Hope you’re all having a lovely Monday!
