You guys. I’m not trying to be that fickle blogger than just comes and goes but lately I have been. I’ve also been working 60hr+ weeks at my real job so there’s that. At least it’s down from 80 right? It’s the little things.
I’ve noticed that a lot of my favorite bloggers have been a little MIA lately, what’s up with that? Is the blogging bubble about to burst? I can’t speak for others, but I know that lately I’ve enjoyed living my life and loving those around me too much to take the time to sit at my computer and share it with you guys. Which makes me feel kind of crummy (for you guys). So I’m trying to find a balance.
That being said. I’ve still be DIYing to my heart’s content and have plenty of fun projects and stories to share. But for now, I will share what we’ve been up to lately. Just to ease back into the whole blogging regularly (?) thing.
I celebrated my 28th birthday the only way I knew how. With a salted caramel cupcake from Bird Bakery. The girls working there even sang to me! If you haven’t been you must go. And bring me with you.
We continued my birthday celebration with dinner at Cured. Which. Being a vegetarian was a dumb choice on my part. But I knew that Derek really wanted to try it so I sacrificed my birthday dinner for him. Kidding. The interior finish out of the restrooms made it totally worth it. A dream.
I hosted a bridal shower for my lovely Lauren who has now officially been married for almost two weeks. She was the most beautiful bride. And the tiniest. She decided to surprise me with the greatest news of all that day and informed me that she and her
Fiance Husband have bought the house across the street from us! Can you imagine? I just about died. We’ll probably have our own TV show soon. And the raddest of block parties.
The next weekend we road tripped to Arkansas to geek out over Thorncrown Chapel and watch our best friends get married. This was the first time Derek and I had ever stood in a wedding together (besides our own?) and it was SUCH a blast. This wedding marked the last of our close friends to get married (from our group) so it was a a pretty special occasion. We even had a celebrity to party with. And a ghost cat.
This past weekend I decided to see The Fault in Our Stars and balled my eyes out. And now I’m reading the book. What is wrong with me?
This has been my go to dinner while putting in some serious OT at work. Who doesn’t love wine and cheese? It does the body good.
Other than that I’ve just been having lots of brunches, long walks in the park with Geoffrey, and binge watching Orange is the New Black. We finished watching it about 3 days after it was released which was probably the dumbest thing ever because now we have to wait a whole year for the next season. #firstworldproblems
What have you guys been up to lately?
