I have spent the majority of the last 48 hours trying to sift through all of the ghetto apartments on Craigslist in search of cute little ones in my favorite neighborhoods. It’s kind of bittersweet (as a lot of things in my life currently are.) I’m just trying to get an idea of whats out there since my very recent decision to live in the city. Obviously, things are slightly more complicated* than just packing up + moving, but I need to explore my options. It also seems fitting that I’m getting a bike soon. Put a bike on it.
*And by ‘slightly complicated,’ I actually mean ‘really damn complicated.’
This week, I’ve probably slept, cried and worn yoga pants more than any normal person should. In case you didn’t know, it’s also only Wednesday. I’m still trucking along, currently in a hoodie & yoga pants.
But I’m not here to write about all of the stupid shenanigans that have ruined my week because I’d rather not have it documented to read about later since all that does is make me mad/sad/upset/want to kill all the things. Instead, rainbows and sunshine and pugs and unicorns and cats peeing in air vents. I also have some really great people in my life that distract me from all of those not-so-great things, which helps to make things somewhat bearable. Eric’s birthday was Saturday and even though I had to spend over $200 to fix my car that morning and consumed zero cake with him, the gift that I was most excited to give him was a success.
Amanda and I may have went to three different Target stores in search of these Method + Orla Kiely gems. In the same night, I came to the conclusion (officially) that Plaza Azteca trumps Mexico when it comes to delicious Mexican cuisine. I think having two taco salads this week gives me the right to make this call. Regardless, this girl is hilarious and makes my heart happy. Love her.
Tots with tot. I used to see Katie every weekend and Monday was the first time I’ve seen her since April. Tots and tofu happened. I was also just happy that I didn’t have to get tots alone while reading a book about cats and drinking Blue Moon at the bar. THANK YOU, LITTLE BABY J.
Am I the only one who feels like wearing jeans to work makes the day at least 50% better? I did what I wanted on Monday & Tuesday by wearing jeans and celebrated by taking a picture of myself in front of the toilet. Blogworthy only because I want to remember this shirt forever since it was $70 and my Anthro-shopping days are on a hiatus until further notice. I didn’t wear jeans today so the highlight of my day was my sweet friend Christy buying me lunch from Ellwood’s, which is obviously the best way to my heart.
See? There are still good things & people in the world.
