My Long Weekend in Numbers

7 meals out

5 hours spent looking at appliances

1 Valentine’s Day date

2 plane rides

2 time zone changes

2 trips to the movie theater

3 rented movies

5 houses looked at

1 offer submitted

Keep your fingers crossed for us! Hopefully we will hear today if our offer was accepted, and if not, I may venture across the street and cry into some wine mid-day.  I imagine looking for a house is kind of like buying a wedding dress, when you know you know, and if Darren running around the house like a 5 year-old wasn’t clue enough then I don’t know what is.  I was in love with the house before we even went inside, and the 29×12 master suite with walk in closet kind of sealed the deal for me.  The big finished basement didn’t hurt either.

The weekend in Wisconsin was awesome, and went by way too quickly.  I am definitely not ready to be back in VA or at work today, the hour and 15 minute commute this morning thanks to an accident didn’t help my mood much.  Ok I’m off to catch up on work, and stress out about the house! Hope you all had a lovely long weekend.

Time to Celebrate!

Helloooo July, does anyone else feel like it was just Memorial Day, and now it’s 4th of July?  Seriously, what happened to June?  Anyway, I’m crossing my fingers for a 2 pm closing to kick off this long holiday weekend.  The roommates and I, along with some other JMUers are off to Baltimore tomorrow for some fun, on/near the water.

Yesterday I got in a 4 mile run at lunch, 9:09 pace, and then looked like a lobster at work for the next hour.  The right side of my headphones has officially stopped producing noise, so it’s time to buy some new earbuds.  These lasted two years I wanna say, so that’s pretty good.  I cannot say the same thing for my Nike iPod armband, which is almost a year old and falling apart.  Guess I should get a new one of those also.

So my anti-socialness struck again last night.  When I got home from work, our friend Will was sitting on the couch having a beer with one of the roommates.  Will’s in the Army and lives in Tennessee somewhere right now, but is currently up visiting.  They were going out for some dinner and drinks with a few other friends, and I turned down the invite to join.  Instead I sat home watching Going the Distance, which just made me sad.  I need to work on my socializing skills.

In honor of the holiday weekend, today I decided to dress like I was going sailing.  Wishful thinking I suppose.

Three year-old white denim wide leg jeans: 7 for all mankind
Blue and white striped tank: like $4 at H&M last summer
Seahorse necklace: Courtesy of roommate Dani’s necklace collection (maybe she can weigh in on where it’s from)

Lastly for today, new favorite picture of me and the roommates from last weekends goodbye party.

Anyone have fun plans for the 4th?

4 Day Weekend

Happy Friday everyone!! To those that are working today, I hope you at least get out a little early.  I’m currently sitting on my friend Dani’s bedroom floor hanging out with my lovely girlfriends.

The drive down last night wasn’t nearly as bad as it could have been.  As expected, the worst part was getting out of PA, but once I hit the DE border it was smooth sailing.  I made it to Danielle and Adrienne’s house by 7:30 (30 min longer than it should have taken) and was greeted by good friends and a glass of wine :).  The five of us girls sat around chatting, drinking wine, and watching the Jersey shore.  It was a great night.

I managed to drag myself out the door this morning for a 3 mile run, and man is it humid out there!  It was probably the most difficult three miles I’ve run in a long time.  The girls have a little path right across the street from where they live and I ran a long that so as not to get lost.  Despite the sucky weather, I’m glad I got out there and got some miles in.  Something is better than nothing right?

The wedding is tonight at 6 pm, so us girls are heading over to check into the hotel around 3, and then it’s party time!  Gotta run out and do some last minute errands, but I just wanted to check in and say hi.  Have a great Friday everyone!
