The best day! En mutlu günüm!

Herkese uzun bir aradan sonra Merhabalar! 🙂

Uzun bir ara diyorum cunku yeni bir post hazirlamam haftalar surdu. Nedenini soracak olursaniz nisanlanmam, 4 gun sonrasi evlenmem, dugun ve yesil kart islerimleri icin kosusturmalarim, doktor isleri vs vs. Gozlerini kapatan maymuncuk emojisi koyup tarif etmek isterdim su bir ayda yasadiklarimi fakat asil kosusturma gecen haftasonu dugun planlari ve arastirmalari yapmam ile basladi. Ne kadar yorucu olursa olsun bunlar cok guzel heyecanlar ve insanin hayatinda yalnizca bir kere yasadigi onemli bir gun 🙂 Herkes umarim bu mutlulugu tadar ve en guzel gunu planladigi sekilde hayallerindeki gibi olur!

Bir ay onceki erkek arkadasim simdiki esim’in haftasonu bir is gezisi ile kayak tatilini birlestirmesi uzerine basladi hikayemiz. Is geregi Hunter Mountains’da cok sevdigimiz bir otelde bir parti oldugunu ve orada kalip, kayak yapacagimiz bir haftasonu tatili oldugunu ve o haftasonu icin baska bir plan yapmamami istedi. Araba kiralayip yola ciktik. Once biraz kayak yapip sonra oglen yemegi yiyip parti icin hazirlanmak icin otelimize gectik.

Hi everyone after a long time! 🙂 I say for a long time because I have not been posting for weeks. If you ask me why, my engagement, my marriage after 4 days of my engagement, all the doctor and paper process for the marriage etc. No matter how tiring they are, they are very excited and it is an important day which you live once in your life 🙂 I hope everyone will experience this happiness one day and it will be like they dream it! My boyfriend, a month ago, told me the ski weekend plan where we combine his business at the same time. Hunter Mountains was the area where the hotel we stay and the party will place. We rented a car and journey started. First, we stopped to ski at the mountain. Then went to Mama’s Boy to eat lunch and our hotel to get ready for the party.



Bahadir soyadimi tek basina kullanmaya cok yakinda veda edecegim aklimin ucundan bile gecmezdi bu fotografi cekerken 🙂

I had no clue when I was taking this picture that I was not able to use my last name Bahadir itself alone ever again! 🙂





Mama’s Boy Burger, Hunter’a bir kac gelmemize ragmen hic kesfetmedigimiz bir mekandi. Ogle yemegi icin tater tots ve mantarli hamburger secimim ile Mama’s Boy Burger’dan memnun kaldim.

Mama’s Boy Burger was the place for our lunch choice where we have never been despite has been to Hunter Mountains couple times before. Their tater tots and portobello mushroom burger was great!

Ogle yemeginden sonra otelimize dogru yol aldik. Burada farkli tasarim ve urunlerin satildigi standlarin kuruldugu guzel bir market vardi ona bir goz attik.

When we arrived our hotel Scribner”s Catskill Lodge, we saw this little craft market in the lobby.

Sonra da parti icin hazirlanmaya koyulduk. Saat 4’e geldiginde parti icin asagida olmamiz gerekiyordu. Saatin gelmesine dakikalar kala hazir olabilmistim ve Adam beni balkona cagirdi bir sey gostermek icin. O gun oglen yemegi icin gittigimiz restorantta aksam uzerin havai fisek gosterisi olacagini ogrenmistik. O da bu bahaneyi kullanarak beni balkona cikarmayi basardi. Senenin ilk kari yagiyordu o gun, 9 Aralik. Hani nerede? Havai fisek gosterisi mi basliyor derken o sihirli sozlerini soylemeye baslamisti bile. Evlenme teklifi edecegini anladigim gibi duygulandim ve ona sarildim. O da guldu ve daha teklif etmedim diye cevap verince ikimizde kahkahalar atmaya basladik 🙂 Ona evet yerine tabiki dedigimi hatirliyorum ve sonra da yuzugumu takip karsi balkonda bizi kameraya alan otel gorevlilerini gosterdi. Odamiza gonderilen sampanya ile kutlamayi baslattik. Ailelerimizi arayip bu guzel haberi onlar ile telefondan paylastik. Bu arada evlenme teklifi alacagimi ailem ve kizkardesimin aylar onceden biliyor olmasi ve bana hic bir sey belli etmemelerini ogrenmem beni baya sasirtti. Hatta teklifimin daha erken olacagi fakat kizkardesimin Amerika’ya gelisini beklediklerini de yine cok sonradan ogrenmis bulundum. Kizkardesim gelirken evlilik icin ihtiyacim olan tum belgelerimi bile yaninda getirmisti.

Then we went to our room to get ready for the party. When it was 4 o’clock, we had to be on the porch for the party. I was ready a few minutes before 4 pm and Adam wanted to show me something that he was calling me to the balcony. Earlier that day when we were at the restaurant to eat lunch, one of the employees told us that it will be a fireworks display. So Adam used this excuse to make me out to the balcony. The first snow of the year was that day, December 9th. I was so curious to see the fireworks and asking like “Where is it?” When I was looking for the fireworks show to start, he started to say his magical words. As soon as I understood that he was proposing, I was emotional and I hugged him. He mentioned that he has not proposed yet when I was hugging him so it is early to celebrate, we both started laughing 🙂 I remember saying him “of course” instead of “yes”, and then he showed me the hotel staff who were recording us with a camera at another balcony. We started the celebration with the champagne presented to us and sent to our room. We called our parents and family to share this beautiful news with them on the phone. In the meantime, my family and my sister knew I had to get a marriage proposal earlier in the month, and I was amazed by the fact that they were very professional to hide it from me. My proposal had been waited for the perfect time, for my sister to arrive the U.S.A. and she brought me all the documents I needed for my marriage.


Gunler boyunca ozellikle de ilk gun gozumu yuzugumden alamadim. Yuzugum tam hayalimdeki gibi tasarlanmisti. Yastik kesim dikdortgen tek tas ve kenarlarinda minik sira tasli cerceve ve band. Basta emerald cut ( zumrut kesim ) yuzuk dusunurken New York kuyumcularindan aldigim tavsiye ile dikdortgen yuzuk askimi cushion kesim ( yastik kesim ) ile degistirdim. Denedigim emerald ve cushion kesim yuzukler de bu kararimi pekistirmemi sagladi. Ozellikle benim gibi round cut ( yuvarlak kesim ) tercih etmeyen fakat yuzugunuzun parlak olmasini isteyen hanimlara en guzel onerim yastik kesim yuzuktur. Cunku emerald kesim cok guzel bir model olmasina ragmen diger kesimlere gore en az isigi verir. Yuvarlak ve kare hatlari ayni anda sergileyen yastik kesim ise emerald’dan daha cok yuzeye sahip oldugu icin isigi cok guzel yansitan bir model ve son 100 yilda populerligi artmistir. Yastik kesim kare ve dikdortgen olmak uzere iki farkli modele ayrilir. Parmaklari daha uzun gostermesi ve daha hos durdugunu dusundugum icin ben dikdortgen kesimi tercih ettim. Ayni zamanda bu model kareden daha zor bulunan bir model.

During the first day, I could not take my eyes off my ring. It was designed exactly like I dreamt. The masonry cut is a rectangular single stone and a small tapered frame and band on the edges. I changed my Emerald cut engagement ring idea instead of a Cushion cut engagement ring with the recommendation of New York jewelers. The emerald and cushion cut rings that I tried were also able to enhance this. It is the best recommendation for the ladies who do not prefer round cut like me but want your ring to be sparkling. Even though the emerald cut is a very nice model, it gives the least light to compare the other cuts. The cushioning, which exhibits round and square lines at the same time, is a very beautiful reflection model for having more surface than emerald and has increased popularity in the last 100 years. The mattress is divided into two different models to be square and rectangular. I prefer the rectangular cut to shows the finger longer than it is and looks much better. At the same time, this model is more difficult to find.

Ertesi gun sabah yakinda Amerika’da satmaya basladigim bir Turk firmasina ait urunlerin cekimini yapmaya basladik. Gecen aylarda Turkiye’de evlenen cok yakin bir kiz arkadasim icin baktigim dugun hediyeleri ile Amerika’da gelinlere ozel gecelik, sabahlik, pijama ve ic camasiri pazarinin cok genis olmadigini farketmem, hic guzel ve ozel bir tasarim bulamamam, buldugum ve begendigim tek urunun de 850$ civarinda olmasi ve Victoria’s Secret gibi bile buyuk firmalarin Bridal koleksiyonlarini tamamen kapatmasi beni soke etmisti. Onume bir kac ay sonra tamamen tesadufen gelen bu guzel proje sayesinde Turkiye’den getirdigimiz urunleri Amerikan piyasasina sunmanin sevincini yasiyorum. Umarim bunun gibi nice Turk urununu Amerika pazarina sokabilme ve bunu her gecen gun arttirabilme sansim olur. Urunleri Amazon ve Blogumun suan hazirlanma asamasinda olan Shop bolumunde satisa cikaracagiz. Siz de Amerikaya getirmek istediginiz urunler icin www.thenewyorkista.com veya bbahadr@yahoo.com e-mail adresimden bana ulasabilirsiniz.

The next morning, we started to shoot for the products of a Turkish company that I started to sell in the U.S.A. A few months ago in Turkey, one of my best friends got married and I was looking for a gift for her to send it to Turkey. When I was looking a gift for her I noticed that there are very limited nightgowns, morning gowns, pajamas, and underwears for brides which are pretty and affordable. There was only one product that I liked for her and it was around 850 $ for a lingerie! The affordable ones were terrible designs and nothing special at all! Even the big companies such as Victoria’s Secret have completely closed their Bridal collections. I was shocked. Then a few months later, I have introduced to this products from Turkey with a work project and decided to be part of it to present it to the U.S. market. This product is a set of a morning gown, a nightgown, a long-sleeved pajamas and a short and tank pajamas for summer. I am so proud to introduce this Turkish brand into the American market and increase it every passing day. We will sell the products in the Shop section of my blog which is still under development, Amazon for now. We aim to get into the Flea markets soon to be able to create face to face communication with our clients. You can also contact me at www.thenewyorkista.com or email me at bbahadr@yahoo.com for the products you wish to bring to the U.S.A.!

 

Cekim bittikten eve gitmek icin yola koyulduk ve yolumuz uzerinde olan iki dugun mekanina ugradik fikir edinmek icin. Beni aslinda en buyuk suprizin evde bekledigini bilmeden yorgun ve yatagimi dusleyen bir sekilde evden iceri girdim ve Adam’in ailesini, yakin arkadaslarimi, kiz kardesimi ve Amerika’ya ilk geldigimde yasadigim ailem gibi olan ikinci ailemi evimizde buldum.

As soon as we finished the shoot we headed for the two wedding venues on our way. I came home without knowing that the biggest surprise was waiting for me at home!  Adam’s family eventually my new family, my host family where I lived when I first get here, my sister and my close friends were at home for our surprise engagement party!

Tabiki yine gozyaslarimi tutamadim. Hic beklemedigim bir andi ve herkesi orada bir arada gormek beni cok cok cok mutlu etti. Iste bu guzel gunumuzun tum fotograflari sizinle. Allahtan arkadaslarima ve tum sevdiklerime boyle guzel insanlarla cevrili olmayi, boyle guzel surprizler ve anilar yasamayi nasip etmesini diliyorum. Tum guzellikler sizinle olsun, sevgiler <3
