Chris and I are getting married in 6 months! The time is going so fast, it really hasn't hit me just yet. As an engagement present, our friend Jeff gave us these adorable ducks.

Hello dear blog number 3!
If you knew of the first one, you'd be embarrassed for me. Its locked now. Peacefully put to sleep! If you know of blog number two, then you're a good friend/livejournal'er who likes to keep in touch. I will continue to write there too! Don't worry =)
Let me introduce myself:
My friends mostly call me Jen Vegas.
I was born in Philadelphia and grew up in bright-lights-medium-big-city Las Vegas. Hence, me being liberal and free-spirited. Yes, there is an actual city/life outside of the Las Vegas strip and the insanity you see on television and movies. (Please leave your opinions and your generalisations about Las Vegas somewhere else, it's not wanted here!)
I live in Auckland, New Zealand (hence the Queen's English).
I am in the 20-something range.
I've been a vegetarian for nearly 10 years. It's a personal choice, and I don't judge others for their own lifestyle decisions.
I am obsessed with music. I can't handle pretentious conversations about music though, so leave your snark elsewhere. Not here.
I usually see more than I let on to believe. I cannot fake nor hide my true feelings about people/situations etc.
I love my family, fiance and friends to bits.
I love to dance but this rarely ever happens anymore. I love photography and used to be a professional portrait- studio photographer.
I love U.S. politics, in a dream life I'd work for C-SPAN. In another dream life, I'd be a clothing designer, but maybe instead I'll become a graphic/web designer.
I want to learn how to sew.
My favourite cities are Philadelphia, NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Madrid, Montreal, Melbourne (That's in Australia! and it's a new favourite).
I have become painfully shy (all over again) living in a foreign country. My social skills are dwindling, but as soon as I get back home I'll shrug it off in no time.
I wish I looked like Sienna Miller with the style, grace and wardrobe of Jackie O, Twiggy, Anna Karina & Blair Waldorf.
Okay that's enough about me! On with the blog now...
