Life: Dirty 30 updates

This might be the first time I’ve had for almost 2 weeks to sit down, write, and update you on life as it currently stands.

photo 4(6)Two weekends ago, I traveled to Pittsburgh to celebrate Jenna and Sean as they tied the knot. I hitched a ride up to Pittsburgh with Kelly and her boo. To tie it all together so you get the connection – Kelly, Jenna, and I were roommates for 4 years. We had a lot of memories to share. We were there for each other’s ups, downs, and general WTF moments in life, so it was a really special weekend.

It was so nice to get away for the weekend; I, of course, had the best date at the wedding. All the ladies were totes jelly.

Now before you judge, we brought Edward as a special guest since Jenna used to be (maybe still is?) obsessed with Twilight. She’s even met some of the cast members. He was, naturally, a hit! The evening itself was filled with love and laughter and I was pretty chuffed with myself for capturing this amazing moment…

Just pure love. There were so many fun things about the wedding like the post-reception bowling, the tater-tot bar, and the cookie table; but the best was getting the mother of the bride drunk…a favorite past time of the roommates when we all lived together. Yes, that’s a flask. Get on board.

It took at least a day to recover after all the shenanigans, but it was definitely worth it. I didn’t have long to rest until I was out celebrating my own birthday and moving into my very first place! I wasn’t feeling the over the top party this year, for whatever reason, so I just had a few girls together for happy hour on Wednesday and then a fun dinner/night out on Saturday around 14th/U street.

But let’s rewind for a hot second, because I skipped right over moving into my very own place! It’s not much, but it’s mine…all mine! I’m still in my same neighborhood which I loved too much to leave and I’m now in a studio, but I don’t really need much more space. I did think about living in DC, but there were a few factors that kept me in VA and for now, I’m very happy with my decision. Maybe in a year, I’ll be ready to take that leap.

Of course, it doesn’t look like this now, but there is definitely a long way to go before it feels like home. I’m trying to hone my inner John and Sherry of Young House Love and live happily in the in-between. Half the fun I get from reading their blog is seeing a space evolve over time, so I’m trying to relish that in my place. To get the fun started, I did manage to hang this fun octopus from the YHL collection they just launched at Target. Fancy, eh?!

So yeah, that’s what I’ve been up to. I just can’t wait to bring you even more apartment updates as I DIY the shit out of the studio! Wheeeeeee!
