First, a massive apology for the void that has been my blogging life. Finals week was an absolute mess (though I'm happy with the results). I officially have half a master's degree, so that's cool. Although I am looking forward to having the summer off to focus back on the blog (Leah and I have some big things planned for our one-year anniversary in July!) and take some me-time just to relax and read for fun. Be on the lookout for my summer reading list, and in the meantime, please feel free to send suggestions my way! Just no French feminist theory, please.
I also made the oh-so-stupid decision to apartment hunt during finals for EJ and I. Since he works full time and I didn't have classes, it seemed like a good idea at the time. Six hours and one gigantic spreadsheet later...not so much.
The good news is, we found a place!!! It was a little pricier than we originally planned, but in the location we wanted and absolutely perfect for us. It's a two bedroom, two bath in an older home downtown that has been split up into multiple apartments. Our place is on the second and third floor of the house, with the master bed and bath upstairs and everything else downstairs.
Stairs are good for your butt, right? Because carrying boxes up and down is going to be a pain in mine!
We will be moving all of our stuff in over the course of the week (emptying two apartments into one is hard!) and hopefully will have our furniture there this weekend. Anyone in the Winston area with strong arms and some free time on Friday, comment below. I'm willing to bake.
Other new things in my life:
- On EJ's sister's recommendation, I've started reading theSkimm every morning when I wake up. I love it. I have never been one to pay attention to politics or current events (hence the reason I started dating a poli sci major) but Skimm packages the news in such short, sassy blurbs that I can stay up to date on the world in just a few minutes a day.
- This summer I am working as a babysitter/taxi driver for an eleven year old girl. She is so much fun and I am really excited to get to hang out with her all summer (and get paid for doing it). Mommy blogger friends...any suggestions of fun activities, crafts, or destinations for us?
- As of Monday, Leah and I are officially one year out of undergrad. It's been a crazy, amazing ride and we have been so happy to share it with you all. Thanks for following along.
