Happy Meemorial Weekend! Why Meemorial? Just a funny family joke. I hung out with my Dad all day on Saturday. We saw the new Pirates movie, and then I made us some homemade pizza. We drank a bottle of wine, enjoyed our back porch, and talked about the travels we've been on (Italy and Africa). It was a wonderful evening. The rest of my weekend was spent with my lovely boyfriend.
So here's to remembering all our loved-ones! And appreciating all the sacrifices made for us.
Well I've officially been a "I live in my parent's basement" adult for 6 months. I know I've mentioned it on the blog before, so I won't talk to much about it. I'm so appreciative that I have parents that will let me stay with them until the time is right for Matt and I to move in together. However, creatively, it's awful. I've also got this love affair with stuff, and well, when you live in one bedroom, you quickly run out of space for your beloved things. So I've a storage unit fill with tables and chairs and all the other nicknacks I had before I moved in. In my Dad's shop I have a aqua filing cabinet that I got from my friend Mike. A recently found 1970's velour floral print couch (Match made in heaven, we are). Various other furniture and trinkets, like the amazing 1960's Fisher Price toys my Mom bought me for my birthday, and my fawns. But the one (eight) things I'm most sad about having hidden away is my suitcase collection. They are all so beautiful, and can be very useful, but there just isn't room to have them displayed. It seems sort of silly, but I feel like my stuff is sad, like the toys from Toy Story, that I have to hid them all away. So for now I'll just have to keep showing you all my finds here, at least they can have a moment in the light (which is awful down here).
Did I tell you about my doilies?! Oh well they are ridiculously expensive, like 3 dollars for a damn doily. Are you serious!? A couple weekends ago I discovered a whole box of doilies at a garage sale. The women sold me the whole box, for 5 DOLLARS! Someday in the very distant future you will see all these doilies put to use on one very special day.
As you can tell by my lack of posts I have serious commitment issues with this blog. In last couple days I have been told by several people that they read my blog (comment you secret readers!). So in light of all the "I L0VE your blog!"'s I am going to try and be a little more committed.
To start I will show you some pictures from birthday. I finally turned 21 a couple weeks ago, being one of the two under-agers in my group of friends I was very much ready for it.
We started the night at Steamboat Gardens, where a couple of us go every Monday. My parents joined us, which I loved, and my Mom made me cupcakes. After dinner we went to the Trailer to enjoy each other's company before we headed out to spend oodles of money at the bar. Of course Matt decided he needed to climb up on the roof, and so we all did. I still have a scab on my elbow (and knee, and ankle).. Smooth move. I'm glad we did it though because it was the official last time everyone was on the roof. Blake and Gracie moved into their new house yesterday and so was the end of an era. Anyway, we then headed downtown, I opted to not bring my camera, which was a good choice. As you'd image the evening ended in typical 21st birthday style. I'll spare you the juicy, barf-y, details.. You're welcome.
If you've been reading my blog recently you can see I got my shoes! I was so so so excited. My trickster Mom put them in a different box so I'd think I hadn't got them. She totally had me fooled.
It was one of the most fun, and unforgettable birthday's I've ever had. I have such wonderfully awesome friends! As well as extremely loving parents, and the most caring boyfriend. Thank you all for an amazing birthday!
Turns out two pictures a day is a lot of pictures! So I just picked my favorites.
My new bonfire requirement is wine. I always felt like I had to drink beer but I enjoy wine much more. So when I turn 21 in.. ohh.. 6 days!!! I will be buying delicious wine for our bonfires this summer. Next up, my Easter basket. Pretty freakin' awesome! My Mom rules. My new adorable swimsuit from Goodwill, and my booty. Half-Moon manicure! Newton's cafe, LOOKS like the cutest diner ever. Unfortunately it was CLOSED when Matt and I tried to go for dinner. BUMMER. My first black pearl on Hexic!!!! My bouquet of flowers from Matt for Secretaries day, so sweet and beautiful. Church, which I've been trying to attend more. However this particular church might not be for me, so I've got my eye out for the perfect one. The best fingernail polish remover ever. The show on Friday, at the end there was pretty much no one there. My usual view; twitter, TV, a billion blankets. Lastly, one of my favorite places to enjoy the sun, at the skatepark watching Matt.
So there's my week! Did I mention my birthday is in less than a week? Holy crap! I'm excited. I have no clue what to wear though. My Mom's church is having a MASSIVE 'garage sale' this weekend. I might be getting to go the night before it opens, so keep your fingers crossed for me. Maybe I will find my birthday dress there (( Talk about perfect birthday gift )).
