Last week, Dan and I had a whirlwind trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico. It was time to finalize a handful of details before the big day (just about 2 months away!!). It began with a makeup trial (what do you think?), ended with floral arrangements and food tasting somewhere in between. Oh, and a trip to Costco. We fancy, huh?
It was so hot and humid in SJ. Even through the heat and all the running around that we did, my makeup stayed intact (#winning). In my light packing, I remembered to throw in the latest addition to my romper family. Good thing I did because the lightweight chambray and loose fit kept me pretty comfy and as cool as possible. The drawstring waist is money, allowing me to tighten or loosen as needed. Obvi, the whole going to the bathroom situation is the only downside.
Our days were jam pack with meetings and errands, but luckily, our evenings were pretty quiet. One night, we ventured out to Old San Juan to check out Marmalade, a restaurant that came highly recommended by two lovely Boston bloggers, Jessye and Jyo. They claimed that they had their best meals there. I am now a believer. If you ever find your way to PR, this is a must. And make sure to try their tiny bean soup. I know, sounds weird, but go with it.
Calling all married friends, any good advice for this bride to be?
