Happy Friday lovely girls! Only one more week until I make my big move to Dallas and I’m getting so excited! Having inventoried all of the stuff I have (really just a bunch of clutter and things I don’t need) I made a little list of things that are on my “to buy” list. That “little list” keeps growing though. The sheer amount of things that a girl can accumulate in the name of it being cute is quite surprising!
Number one on my list is a gray or cream-colored tufted headboard. I can’t stand my bed just up against a wall with nothing to pull it together so to speak. A bed should be a space you go to relax and sleep. Frankly, if it isn’t orderly and somewhat dream-like, then sleep simply doesn’t come easily to me. Not sure if that makes me high-maintenance or not but I’m betting that’s what a few people are thinking. What can I say though, I like a pretty space!
The second thing on my list is a great standing mixer! My mom has a white Kitchen Aid mixer and it’s so useful. I’m not much help in the kitchen, but I do like to bake! Funny story though, I have the tendency to forget if I’m baking something and simply let it burn until I remember. I’ve done this with place and bake cookies quite often!
Finally, I’m hoping to get a great, high quality frame for a photo of my boyfriend David and I. Having pictures of family and friends around the house makes a space so much more personal. I found this Kate Spade one at Dillard’s a few weeks ago and have been admiring it ever since.
Comment below with your apartment wish list!
Good morning lovelies! I’ve had a very busy week and weekend so I thought I’d update you on what’s been happening in the life a lá Liz! I realize I haven’t been blogging quite as much as I’ve wanted to and I certainly haven’t forgotten you guys. I love writing for you and to you. I’m inspired by your comments and stories.
Lately, I’ve been buying things for my apartment and unpacking more suitcases and boxes trying turn this apartment into a home. It’s a long process of getting everything just the way I want it, especially when you’re on a recent college grad budget. I’m proud of myself though, I’ve been learning to budget better and save money. There’s a lot of little expenses that I’m surprised to learn about though. For example, I went to Verizon to look into getting my own plan and they told me the cost monthly would be $40 for the data package I want. I asked what the other monthly fees would be and once they added it all up it was around $80. Big difference. Most of the fees were incredibly stupid and clearly designed to sound important when really all they’re going towards is some CEO’s paycheck.
Anyway, being out on my own is an exciting new adventure for me. Work is going well and I’m enjoying what I do. Working from home is really nice! I love being able to get up and sign into our web platform in my pjs while sipping coffee and listening to Jack Johnson. I’m spoiled, I know.
Last week was all about adjusting to a routine and getting myself together. This week I have a bit more on my plate. Hopefully, I’ll get to spend time with my sister and hear about her trip to Harper’s Ferry, WV. She and her American Heritage Girls troop went on a canoeing trip Friday and should be back tomorrow. I’m sure someone flipped their canoe or nearly drowned. Always some shenanigans going down with these girls. In the photo is my sister on the right and then her friends Faith, Grace, and Allie. These girls are hilarious together. I’m so glad my sister has such a good group of friends.
I’m going to go get ready for my day now! Enjoy your Sunday!
