Starbucks guessed how to spell my name, which is amongst the most popular name in this country.

I think it says Sasha or Sarha…

I love gays.

So proud/excited/elated to be a NY state resident tonight. We can all get gay married now!

As seen on all my social media sites…

Aaron and I’s cake toppers for the wedding. They were a gift from my sisters. They are so awesome, I can’t even handle.

I also decided on my wedding dress! And now I’m gonna end thus über girly post.

Update from the 7 Train

So my last post was about my first Bikram yoga class 3 weeks ago. I made it through my first class. And I’m absolutely addicted. I never expected to be so obsessed with any workout, especially not one that takes place in a 110 degree room for 90 minutes, but I am. It’s a good thing, I suppose. Except I have family coming in town for Aaron and I’s engagement party next week and I’m already stressing over when I can find the time to go 4 times a week. And it’s expensive. But I’m in love.

I’m also looking at wedding dresses with the fam Monday. I’ve done a little looking but this will be more hardcore. I’m gonna need a lot of protein and/or champagne. I’m a cranky shopper…

Eve 6 - Inside Out

Flashback Friday!!

I was obsessed with Eve 6 for about a year in high school. And I thought my mom was THE WORST for not letting me go to the Third Eye Blind/Eve 6 concert.

Rainn Wilson just said on twitter that the best/worst song lyrics ever are “wanna put my tender heart in a blender”.

Tis true.

I will go to my first hot yoga class tomorrow. I must.

I’ve been putting it off since Tuesday. I need to jump start this regimen. I can’t wait to hold my favorite yoga poses in extreme heat. And I may throw up.

See why I’m putting it off? I’m holding myself accountable in front of you, my two followers who read this. Tomorrow at 11am in Long Island City, NY I will make this happen.
