I meant to update my blog last weekend but life got in the way. Moving is time consuming. Also I don’t have internet at my apartment so I have to find free wi-fi (hello Starbucks) in order to do anything with the blog and last weekend I actually made it to Starbucks with my laptop and every single outlet was taken and my computer died after 15 minutes. And then I went to another Starbucks and wordpress wouldn’t upload my pics. Very frustrating to say the least. But finally I’m back in business and I promise to not stay away for so long.
Anyway back to my move! I have been in my first apartment for 2 weeks now and it is wonderful! If I give you some sneak peaks and update you with lots of pictures will you forgive me for being a bad blogger?
My place is still a total work in progress as you can see. I haven’t gotten any of my wall art or photo frames hung yet and I still have two beds in my bedroom (umm Unkie you want to come pick up the old bed soon?) but my apartment is coming together nicely. Funny story. When I was buying my bed frame at Gallery Furniture I was pick pocketed by a monkey. Seriously. This store has monkeys in it (they also have people walking around handing out ice cream sandwiches) and of course I wanted to pet one of the monkeys. So I walked over to where a man was letting holding one of the monkeys and I reached out to pet it and the next thing I knew the monkey was climbing on me. I almost peed myself. Then in front of the crowd that was gathered around the monkeys this little monkey reached in my purse and pulled out a tampon. I snatched it back from its waving hands and then before I could blink it had reached back into my purse from the other side and pulled out a small plastic cup (it was a sample cup that I tossed in there after not seeing a trashcan anywhere. Yes my purse sometimes doubles as a dumping bag for trash) I let it keep the cup and practically ran away. Needless to say pet monkey if definitely off my list.
Of course I have been doing tons of cooking and baking. I think having my own kitchen is my absolute favorite part of having my own apartment.
Anyone want to come over for dinner this week?
While I am loving having lots of “me time” I have been making sure to get out of my apartment to have some fun with friends.
That almost catches you up. Before you go though I did manage to get one sign hung up.
Talk to you again soon! I promise.
