Sorry, but...

I absolutely loved this movie. 
My sweet old (as in former) roommate, and now courtyard neighbor invited me to come see Water for Elephants with her and some friends. Normally I would be a total home-body loser and decline, but I felt uncharacteristically spontaneous and found myself in the movie theater (with smuggled Swedish Fish in hand) less than 20 minutes later. 
I loved everything about this movie and wish I had read the book all those years ago when it was first recommended to me. But who am I kidding....this saved a lot of time.
I wanted (almost) every single outfit Reese wore. Or at least to be able to pull off (almost) every single outfit that she wore. I think the only one I could actually handle is the robe below. And oh, how I long for such a beaut to lounge around in. 
Also, could I have her curls please? MmkThanks. 

I don't want to spoil anything for the non-book readers or the ones who have yet to see this movie. But I definitely yelled out loud at a certain highly intense point in the film. I'll just say...Rosie sure can work that ground stake.
I need to tone my movie watching down when I'm in public. I'm so used to exclaiming my every thought when I am watching them at home.

Texas Weekend

This weekend Miles and I visited Fort Worth and I gave him a tour de Bethany's childhood, caught up on some overdue family visits and cuddled with the sweetest little bean evarrrr.
We took a lovely stroll down memory lane, Miles got to see a giant, stinky longhorn at the stockyards, we both got tons of slobbery baby kisses and cute cuddling moments, bought Miles' wedding suit from Zara, and we ate more in the 2 days we were there than in about 2 weeks of normal living. So good.

Honeymoon Booked!

So I lost everything on my hard drive again yesterday. I have about 4 days total where I will be able to work on all my projects. I was totally down in the dumps again yesterday. But today we booked our honeymoon with Cheapcaribbean.com and I am no longer down in the dumps, but totally over the moon about the 5 days we are going to spend at this amazing resort! Also, I was a little skeptical about booking through this site, but seriously, BEST customer service I have ever, ever experienced. I was having problems with the flights I selected booking up before I could finalize my payment and someone from customer service called ME to help a sister out. And for one second after I gave this man my credit card information I had a little panic attack about being scammed...but nope, its totally on my account and legitimately reserved!

Okay, okay. Job-time.

New Home!

Last weekend, I moved across my courtyard to what will be our first home together. I can wholeheartedly confess that  I thought I was going to die before I finished carrying the last box up the stairs on Sunday evening. It was completely exhausting, but I'm kind of amazed at how much we were able to move and get unpacked before I had a meltdown over how nothing was "in it's place". I am now resisting the urge to go out and buy everything I want to put "in it's place".

Last week was insane. My hard drive crashed on Monday night (right after I finished printing out all our invitations and address labels, thankfully) and I spent the rest of the week kind of in shock and slowly gathering back the pieces of my digital life. I had backed up a lot of my files to Miles' computer a few months ago when I needed to have a newer operating system to sync my stupid new iPhone to. At the time, I was livid to have to go through so much to sync one Apple product to another (with an "old" operating system), but now I am totally grateful that I had all my music and pictures backed up on his iMac, and most of my school work saved randomly on a flash drive.
On Friday night, as I was driving home, I must have ran over something in the road because when I parked my car I could hear the air coming out of my tire. Trying to sleep that night (the night before I had to move everything into a new apartment) was a joke knowing that I would wake up to a flat tire/foolishly hoping that somehow I had just been hearing things earlier and my tire would be fine. Alas, it was flat. Miles put my spare on and I was off to Sears to get a new tire. But of course the Sears I went to was the only Sears in the greater Nashville area that didn't have my tire (or anything close to it) in stock. Of COURSE! So I left it there to be fixed the next day after having the correct tire delivered and Miles picked up his highly fed up fiance and treated her to a large Chik-fil-a Diet Coke (fave)(only soft drink I really like..)(and only from chick-fil-a).

Blahblahblah, my stories are way too long. Always. Summary of everything else I was going to say:
Next week my momma is coming to town!!
We also have my great-grandmothers 100th birthday party & wedding (bridal?) shower next weekend.
All of my significantly sized school projects are all due on the same day, and that day was two weeks from yesterday. (Vom)

Aaaand here are a few pictures of Miles being handy, helpful and purposefully (and gloriously) awkward in the unpacking of all our stuff:

He is determined to find a place for his Great Wall of China canvas. Above the doorway and sideways will not be that place. 

Recognize that lovely table his foot is resting upon? It was our Goodwill steal of a record player that definitely works as we found out this weekend--just needs a new needle. So pretty much in this picture there is a large record player, with a smaller one on top. Efficient. 

This is the only semi-"done" section of the apartment thus far. I need a frame for that map, but I accidentally bought a map that is bigger than any frame I can seem to find. Didn't fully think that one through...

We finally bought a bed frame after a year and a half of the mattress and box spring sitting on the floor. We're growing up, y'all. We're adults with a bed frame! Well I am an adult with a bed frame (that needs her fiance to assemble it, please and thank you).

Miles almost convinced me to let him buy a new TV for the apartment. I was really close to letting him until he told me that money would be from savings, aka WEDDING MONEY. Boy must be crazy! So for now...I don't even think the huge boxy tv is even plugged in. And I don't really see any reason to plug it in. I just watch Parks & Recreation on Netflix anyways (jumped on that bandwagon kind of late...is there even a bandwagon to jump on for that?) 

Lalala THE END!
