weekend recap

happy monday! i am coming off of a busy weekend: my friend mk's wedding was on saturday! the ceremony was beautiful, the party was fabulous, and both bride and groom looked incandescently happy (and gorgeous/handsome, of course!)

here's a snapshot of the boyfriend and me:

other exciting news: we got a new vacuum!
we were in desperate need of a new one: we had been using a hand-me-down from my parents and the carpet attachment stopped working in the mid-2000s, there is a hole in the hose that we had to duct tape, and overall it took about 3 times longer to get the floors clean than it should have! 
i have long coveted a dyson rollerball (and who hasn't?) but they are so pricey. 
nevertheless, i would get dreamy-eyed watching their ads on tv, and i was forbidden from going down the vacuum aisle at costco because i got too sidetracked!

last week, i found one on craigslist for $75. yes, you read that right. 
3 years old, lightly used, and all i had to do was wash the filters!
i deep-cleaned the apartment yesterday and, well, let's just say that the dyson people are not exaggerating about the suction power! the place is spotless :)

lastly, i made meatballs and sauce for dinner last night but tried a new recipe for the meatballs that my mom raved about:
i can't wait to share the details with you tomorrow - stay tuned! until then, hope your week is off to a great start!
