Every year on or near March 14th, Steve and I hold a Pi Day party. After we got engaged in February, I started thinking about having a party to celebrate, and it seemed only natural to combine our engagement party with our annual celebration of pie.
I’m so glad we did. The party was incredibly wonderful: so many friends from so many parts of our lives came together and showered us with love in the form of delicious, delicious baked goods (as well as a few savory pies like quiche and pizza). If I could bottle up that feeling, I would.

Getting into the pink mood a day early…oh wait, when did I ever need Valentine’s Day as an excuse to wear pink? 😉
I love love love this necklace, which I got on clearance at So Good years ago. I hardly ever wear it, and I don’t know why–I should make an effort to wear it more often.
On Saturday night, Steve and I went out to Max Brenner, a chocolate-centric restaurant in Boston. I had vaguely heard of it, but didn’t have a burning urge to go there until I saw both Natalie’s post and someone else’s Twitter picture of a martini topped with marshmallows.
How cool is it that we have the same restaurant in both Australia and the US?
Here I am, glamming it up in the T (subway) station on the way there.

Honestly, I was kind of lazy this year. I’ve had more creative costumes, like the time I was a Freudian slip.
I put together a cupcake-loving unicorn costume using my pink Domino Dollhouse petticoat, We Love Fine Pinkie Pie cupcake t-shirt, a cupcake sweater that a friend gave me as a birthday present last year, and a unicorn horn headband from Sick for Cute. I was also wearing cupcake socks, but they looked weird over my leggings, so I ended up putting them underneath.
Steve’s costume was even easier, but more awesome: Captain Hammer!
We sat out on the front porch giving candy to kids, including an adorable baby pirate! I love seeing little kids all dressed up. 🙂
