Ch, ch, cha changessss

Over the weekend I got to thinking about some things. Mostly, how it seems my birthday is suddenly one month away and I would like nothing more than to barely acknowledge the day. If you know me IRL, this is the opposite of how I normally feel about my birthday. For the previous 4 years I have spent a wild and drunken weekend at my BFF’s beach house boozing my face off.

Granted I did get dumped on the second night of last year’s trip, so that put somewhat of a damper on the weekend, but at least no one judged me when I showed up to the beach on Friday with a Nalgene full of vodka and not water. Now, since I was broken up with 6 days before my birthday last year, I could pretty much drive off a cliff, into shark infested waters, and have it be more enjoyable than whatever I was doing last year (I’m pretty sure it involved crying into vodka) but that’s not the point. I think last year just kinda ruined it for me, and that’s fine I suppose. I mean I’m well past the age where you should get excited about your birthday, but it kinda sucks too. It falls on a Thursday this year, which is my WFH day, so I’m sure I’ll be at a happy hour or something to celebrate, buy I am definitely a grumpy guss this year. Sigh. I suppose it doesn’t help that, as my mother so eloquently put it, “hunny you are almost 30!” I’m not, I will be 28 dammit. Haha.

Anyway, moving on. I also started thinking (I was alone most of the day on Saturday) about how I’ve seemed to adopt an “Out with the old, in with the new” policy in my life recently. First, I cut off about 7 inches of my hair back in March:

It’s awesome for summer, and it curls so much better, but I’m sure I’ll be sick of it once winter rolls around. Then, spurred by what can only be classified as insanity my roommate and I completely tore apart our backyard. We’re talking an entire Saturday of cutting down tree branches, pulling up weeds, raking old leaves killing the ivy that takes over. It was a mess, and now it looks awesome. We have plants, and flowers, and vegetables assuming I didn’t kill them when I planted them.

The interior of our house also recently got some upgrades and changes, mostly out of necessity since when our third roommate left us to go live with a BOY she took a lot of our furniture. After nearly three years of living in Virginia, we finally have a couch that didn’t also exist in 1954.

Bam!

Bam!

I’m still obsessed with that rug and vacuum it weekly. Let me tell you, I’m pretty sure there’s already an ass shaped impression in that corner of the chaise. Best purchase, ever. Also, for $40 freakin bucks at Homegoods I purchased the prettiest and girliest bedding, and I love it.

And, AND WE GET AIR CONDITIONING INSTALLED STARTING TOMORROW! It’s not central air, but both upstairs bedrooms and the kitchen are having ductless units installed and I’m so happy I could cry. No more crappy window unit rattling my brains at night! I might even be able to turn my blow dryer on without blowing a fuse! Perhaps though, the biggest change coming is this sweet girl coming to live with me, Adrienne, and Pumpkin on Saturday!

It’s not technically my dog, I just get to be her cool aunt. Can’t wait to meet her on Saturday! So lots of changes going on, most not really life changing but good things nonetheless. Oh, and I have a date on Wednesday. The last date I went on there was snow on the ground, and it was so terrible I gave up dating for 4 months. Hopefully this goes better than that one :).

 

Birthday’s and More Birthday’s

So I enjoyed my egg thingy more yesterday for breakfast than I did for dinner on Wednesday.  Then again, I enjoy most things more when the flavors have had a day or two to meld together.  Either way, next time I make an egg bake, I’ll probably use bacon, because what isn’t better with bacon?

Yesterday was crazy at work.  I have a huge project, that came to me a giant mess, due on Monday.  Throw in a goodbye lunch outing, and a baby shower, and I felt like I was at work for five minutes.  None the less, I still made it out the door on time because I had places to be.

Yesterday was three of my friends birthday’s, and a giant group of us was meeting at Spider Kelly’s in Clarendon to celebrate.  I came bearing a piece of baby shower cake to give to the birthday girl.  None other than my roommate Danielle!

Happy birthday pretty lady!  I hope you had a fabulous time, and continue to have fun this weekend despite my absence.).  I left at 8 after three beers, because I needed to go home and pack for my weekend of fun.

Tonight I’m having dinner with my mom and sister, and I *think* I finally get to meet a hilarious lady I’ve been talking to on Twitter for months now!  Just have to make it through a half day of work first.

What are you all up to this weekend?
