friday letters

8 Jun

Dear Best Friend, Happy National Best Friend Day!!

Dear weekend, THANK YOU for finally showing up. It feels like forever since we’ve been together.

Dear iPhone, I appreciate you. You allow me to stay somewhat connected to the outside world even though I don’t have internet at home. Plus, you have that cool app that tracks my sleep cycles.

Dear summer, you’re here!

Dear SarahCatherine, One year!!

Dear People that say “literally”, Please, I beg you, learn when to say it. You didn’t literally sleep for 127 hours, you slept for 9.

Dear future puppy, It’s killing me that I can’t come get you now. Right now. But when I do we’re going to have the best time cuddling together and watching the Bachelorette. No doubt. Plus, I already have a friend for you to play with. He’s nice, you’ll like him.

Dear new apartment, I love you!!… Even with your squeaky floors, closet-less bedroom, and that trombone player that lives downstairs. I love coming home to you and unpacking another box and cooking in the kitchen. I seriously LOVE cooking in that kitchen.

Dear boyfriend, Because I have so much more space to work with in my kitchen I’ll be baking more. Prepare yourself. Do what you gotta do.

Dear running shoes, I’m sorry I haven’t used you for running in a long time. I promise I’ll get back to running as soon as I feel more settled and unpacked. Soon!

Dear sisters, I’m SO glad we rotated the DVDs. I’m loving watching my set!!

Happy weekend!!

apartment wants

5 Jun

I’ve been looking around Pinterest to see what kinds of awesome ideas/inspiration I can find for my new apartment. To give you an idea of where I’m starting from, here is a photo of my living room:

It’s nice, right? Too bad it’s not actually mine 😉 I’m fairly certain this living room would be able to eat my living room in one bite. My actual living room is rectangle and cute.

Anyway, here are some things I’d like for my apartment…

1 – I love the idea of book shelf walls. I could definitely do something kind of like this.

2 – Hello beautiful chair!

3 – I love the unmatched and uncluttered nightstands, bright comforter, the art on the wall and nightstand. Simple. Love it!

every little thing is gonna be alright

I love this! So bright, cheery, and me!

5How fabulous is this?? I’m not sure where I would put it, but it would be such a great piece for an entryway.

Love this.

6Reminds me of Friends 🙂 I always hang my keys on a hook and this would be the perfect way to dress it up.

I’m also looking to do some DIY projects to make it more me and more personal. I’m not that creative sooo… any ideas?!

weekend happenings

4 Jun

This weekend was BUSY, but good 🙂 Here’s what happened…

ONE. I ate Taco Bell in the car, while driving, on 4 hours of sleep. I really don’t recommend it, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

TWO. Friday was National Doughnut Day, so Erin and I did what anybody in their right mind would do. We went to Krispy Kreme and got free doughnuts! The best part? We went to KK before dinner.  We were probably just as excited to do this in our 20s as we were as kids. 

THREE. Except for the 2 minutes it took me to eat my doughnut, I spent the entire weekend eating Chipotle and Hacienda chips and Salsa. I don’t even like Chipotle, but Hacienda salsa makes it taste amazing. If I could eat their salsa all by itself I would. But then I wouldn’t have any friends.

FOUR. This was some of my drive around town music. The song boyfriend wrote for me and gave me for my birthday last year. 

FIVE. My sisters and I spent the whole weekend going through some of my moms and grandmas things and lemme tell you, there was some random stuff! “Look! It’s Chick and Dick in candy form!”

SIX. My grandma was amazing. She made such beautiful clothes and blankets. Essentially anything she crocheted was beautiful. I hope one day I can make things half as well as she did. This was a pink baby sweater. I love the tag.

 

SEVEN. Paul and I thought it would be funny to see if Izaak’s little booty would fit into this cubby in my back seat. Turns out, it was a perfect fit! And the kid loved it! 

EIGHT. Paul “drove” us to Ohio. He was thrilled to get to sit in the drivers seat. I even let him press a few buttons 🙂 (The car was safely parked and the keys safely in my pocket)


I finally got home around 7 last night, walked into my apartment and just stood there. I know I’m the exception, but I really do like unpacking all my things after moving. I was just exhausted from the weekend and had NO idea where the essentials were: shower curtain, work clothes, etc. I spent the next 2 hours setting things up the best I could and then crashed HARD.
Not all that exciting, but incredibly productive! I’m hoping to have my tv set up by tonight so I can watch the Bachelorette! I made Erin watch the first couple episodes of it over the weekend 🙂

ALSO. Hugehugehuge thank you to my amazing boyfriend for helping me move. You are my favorite. Love you!

tidbits

31 May

A year ago yesterday I wrote this post, which makes me laugh because I had a very similar idea for today. 

Here are some tidbits about what’s been going on/what’s been on my mind…

  • The dentist I went to growing up told me for years that I have 3 wisdom teeth. Turns out he was incredibly wrong. Very, very wrong. After going to a new dentist yesterday I learned that I have ONE wisdom tooth. 
  • I’ve lived next door to this one guy for a year now and never learned his name, but always thought he looked like a Dan, so I’ve called him Neighbor Dan. Not to his face of course. The other day we were talking and I apologized for sounding rude, but I asked his name. It’s Russ. Lemme tell you, that is NOT what I was expecting.
  • Tomorrow is National Doughnut Day. Nuff said.
  • Never eat a grilled cheese and go for a run. It doesn’t end well. Trust me.
  • Today I am moving! I am SOSO excited about this new apartment I can’t even tell you. The one major downfall? There is no closet in the bedroom. Oh, okay? I welcome suggestions of how/what I should do with all my clothes.
  • Last weekend we went to Roxy and Davie’s baby shower and they found out they’re having a girl!! Next week I’m going to try and post the video because those two were just as adorable as you can imagine. I have never been there when a couple found out what they were having so it was fantastic to see their reaction. 🙂
  • I can’t get over how amazing littlest bug is.
  • I still love country music.

One week from today I move into my new apartment that has a tiny amount of deck space right off the kitchen. I’m so excited about the thought of watering flowers outside and watching them grow.

I might even try growing strawberries 🙂
