Weekend Recap

Monday, July 30, 2012

the weekend was long, and things are still pretty messy around here, but overall things are looking good. 

I was the only one that could fit in the freight elevator when we had piled everything in each round, and had to ride it down 54 floors solo.   
it was surprisingly terrifying?
{better than being a man and doing the serious heavy lifting? hell yes.}

fist pumping on Lake Shore Drive in the U-Haul + happy half of it is over.... 

celebratory cocktails on the porch....
 {i've learned this weekend that some artwork, like those sunglasses, may never be leaving the apartment} 

and amazing fried mac + cheese bites at brunch 

the messiest aspect of the apartment is, and has been for the last year, the back office.
I pretty much stopped caring, but now I'm determined to get it looking better.  
I've always envisioned the ikea bookcase back there to make all our junk look pretty and organized.

I'm determined to have it looking half-way decent in the next 2 weeks. 

Hope you all had a great weekend :) 


Hoarding: an Olympic Sport?

Friday, July 27, 2012

I am very, very excited for the Olympics to start tonight.  I don't know why, but something about the Summer Olympics get me all kinds of crazy. 
Especially when cuties like this are in teeny-tiny bathing suits

I hope he kicks Phelps ass.....

Anyways.... while the Opening Ceremonies are DVR'ing, I will be in a U-Haul preparing for a roommate of the male species to invade my pretty, single-lady apartment.  
I decided that to prepare for this, I should go through every drawer and every inch of my closet to "clean things out" and make more space for the two of us.  I am generously giving the master closet to him, and said I would keep my clothes in the guest room.
{this actually isn't that generous... I feel that no man understands getting dressed on a Friday night with 15 dresses thrown all over the room, and keeping him as far away from it as possible is fine with me}

As of yesterday afternoon, this is where "cleaning" the guest room had gotten me. 
seriously, this was after 2 hours of getting rid of things.
I'm in my own personal hell.  
And I am officially a hoarder.

After filling up 6 bags for goodwill, and 3 bags for friends, I feel like I haven't even put a dent in it.  I realized that I couldn't bear to part with clothing I haven't worn since 2002 and will most likely never wear again.
A shirt I havent worn in 10 years?
Old T-shirts from frat parties?
My 6 pairs of cheerleading sweatpants from high school?
My favorite pair of jeans that would never fit me ever again, 
even if I was put on a feeding tube for 6 months?
No!!! I couldn't possibly!!!! I need these things shoved under the bed in storage bins at all times!!! 
What is wrong with me?? 

I ended up chugging wine with girlfriends last night to forget about it for a few hours, and came home to this note at the top of the stairs. 
I suppose throwing out half my crap and coming to terms with my hoarding will be worth it.

and now I'm at this point

off to pick up a U-Haul and continue the process.....

and then drink copious amounts of alcohol on the porch. 
{and pretend I am not a hoarder.}

Happy Weekend :) 


Coffee Talk

Thursday, July 26, 2012

discuss amongst ya-selves...... 

Okay so I don't know how I've never mentioned this before, but did any of you watch The Next Food Network Star?? Justin, one of the contestants, won on Sunday night. 
everytime I saw One F Jef on The Bachelorette I thought of Justin.
twins right?
Both look 16.  Both have ridiculous hair.  Both wear skinny jeans.
Oh.... and I came across this picture when googling "jef bachelorette" 
You know what's more obnoxious than girls posing for self portraits in cars?
with peace signs.
Ughhh Emily is such an idiot.... 

Big Brother is back!!!! One of my favorite reality shows of all time.  I just can't get enough of it.  Not sure how I feel about the "coaches" twist this season, because it means I have to look at Mike Boogie again, who is possibly the most annoying human being on the face of the earth. 
I'm sure half of you most of you have no idea what I'm talking about, but this picture should pretty much sum up that he is the kind of person you wish you could slap through the TV screen.  

Bachelor Pad started this week.  I can't wait to watch everyone start passing STD's back and forth. We all know the basis of the show isn't the competition, its that they all act like complete and utter whores.
Shockingly, Eagles Eyes seems to be the biggest whore in the house this season? 

This proves how much alcohol they must be feeding these people that ANY of them would choose to hook up with his crazy eyes. 
Oh.... and crazy Blakely is back.  She thinks she is all smart and amazing now that she has traded VIP Cocktail waitressing for waxing va-jay-jay's. 

You remember her..... this one. 
yep.... I took it there.  
It's just too unbelievable not to share.  

I can't wait until upcoming Real Housewives of NYC episodes - the previews make it look like Scary Island with Kelly + Bethenny was nothing.
And Mario..... I don't like LuAnn, and yes her boyfriend is annoying too... but saying "what is with that accent??!!"..... he is FRENCH dumbass.  
They all sound like that.  
Your idiot wife is rubbing off on you.

Kristin Stewart cheated on Rob Pattinson with a 41 year old director.

You know are seriously panicking when someone who never speaks in public ever issues a public apology basically begging for him to come back.  Smooth move angry face.... I can only imagine how much you'll be pouting in public now if what we've seen for the last 4 years was your "in love and happy" face.
Also.... what idiot cheats on his model wife
with this chick 
ugh... men.

Angry Face

Monday, July 23, 2012

I had a lovely, easy weekend...
{with only two pictures to show for it}
the highlight of which was eating bags of late night Taco Bell in bed with this kid. 
 Sadly, this is one the things that makes me happiest. 
And forgetting to order the Doritos Tacos made me the saddest.
 thrilling stuff around here. 

anyways, it was lovely, 
 until I watched the worst Bachelorette Finale in the history of the show.  

HOW did this happen??? 
I was seriously heartbroken when she broke up with Arie, especially watching him at the After The Final Rose. 

Watching the season and her and Arie wanting to jump each others bones must have been pretty awkward for One F Jef
hmm... which one looks more passionate??? 

Where'd you put the ring when you got it Jef? Because theres no way anything can fit into the pockets of those skinny pants.  
yeah, yeah he's nice.  who cares. 
Atleast they can share clothing together...... 
ugh.  so pretty. and so dumb.
