I wasn’t planning on having a bachelorette party. Heck, I decided not to have bridesmaids, so I didn’t think or expect anyone to step up and plan one. 

But, I’m a lucky lucky girl. My best friends from college decided that they weren’t going to let this big moment pass them by and planned an awesome weekend that made me feel so special and loved. 

A big thank you to Rachel, Rachel, Samantha, Annie, Lisa, Leslie, Jordan and Joellen for being the best friends a girl could ask for. Although you won’t physically be by my side when I become a “Mrs.” I know that you will all be there in spirit cheering me & E on.

What the NFL needs right now is a few more franchises like the Cincinnati Bengals.

I never thought I would see the day when someone described my team this way, but it feels pretty damn good. Being a Bengals fan hasn’t been the easiest road, but I feel particularly good about it as we start the 2014 season. Who Dey! 

It’s official! E & I are heading to Los Cabos for our honeymoon! 

The house that we are staying in is absolutely gorgeous. We have a private pool, hot tub, a gigantic kitchen and enough bedrooms to sleep in a different one (practically) every night. 

So now, dear Tumblr friends, I am asking for advice. Have you been to Cabo? If so, where should we eat? Where should we wander around? What should we see? What can’t we miss?

TAYLOR SWIFT PREMIERED A NEW SONG CALLED ‘SHAKE IT OFF’ DURING HER LIVE STREAM

The clip is directed by Mark Romanek, who’s responsible for such famous videos as Madonna’s “Bedtime Story,” Michael & Janet Jackson’s “Scream,” Fiona Apple’s “Criminal” and Johnny Cash’s “Hurt.”

Watch the full music video here.

Next haircut (after I no longer need to have it long enough for an up-do) will be the one T-Swift has in the fourth box down on the right. 

Work it, girl.

DC friends - We are having a bit of trouble finding a dog sitter for Wrigley August 30-September 1. We would ideally like to find someone to stay at our apartment in NoMA, but would be open to housing him somewhere else. Please let me know if you are interested. We are willing to pay. How can you say no to this face?

I woke up to some sad news this morning about the passing of my favorite Professor, Dotty Lynch. She was an integral part of my education, always helping me work through career questions and providing advice that was far outside the academic sphere. Whenever I made the journey back to campus, her office was always my first stop. I relished the time that she always took to chat about politics and life and the moments where we were able to reminisce about our class trip to the New Hampshire primaries in 2008. 

Professor Lynch was simply one of the best. I hope that she knows just how much of an influence she had on not just me, but so many of her students.
