hi all you party people. hopefully you’re enjoying your weekends! i know i have thus far. unfortunately for me, my weekend ends tonight as i have a lovely 12 hour shift tomorrow.
my week recap:
i had those girls over for a little date night. 2 things about that night to mention
1. the soup was SO good. like unbelievably good. and i mentioned how easy it was to make. i’m telling you-make it. you won’t be disappointed. the best part about it is, i threw everything in the crock pot the night before, pulled it out of the fridge set the cook time and voila. love those meals. here’s the recipe.
2. the movie was SO bad. ha. and there i was really excited to see it. let’s just say don’t waste your time. it’s a cool story (i cannot believe that it actually happened) but the acting is horrid. emma watson, you’re a much better hermoine than you are nicki.
can’t forget the company-love those girls so the night wasn’t a total bust. we ate good food, drank good wine, and laughed at the stupidity of the acting.
no updates. work. run. eat. sleep.
my roommate, lindsay, and i both had the day off and we were remarkably productive! we’ve been living in our amazing house since the beginning of august but we’re finally starting to make it feel like our home.
and I FIXED MY CLOSET! i obviously am living in the one room in the entire house that doesn’t have a closet. (4th year in a row but don’t get me started….) lindsay and i attempted to hang one on the wall and that was just comical. it was holding up remarkably well for about 72 hours. then it started to make weird noises. there i am in my room, “no it’s definitely not the closet falling out of the wall, it must be like rodents just living in the wall”
i turn around and there are like two or three screws legitimately out of the drywall. side note – we are not as handy as we’d like to believe, in case that wasn’t obvious at this point.
so i ended up ripping the rest of it out of the wall and i put up this bad boy and i’m in love! it was super easy to put together (seeing as that i didn’t have to knock aimlessly around the wall to find a stud to screw it in) and it holds all of my clothes!
the one thing i don’t love is the fact that you can’t hang longer items without them dragging on the floor.
so to fix that little problem i’ll also be making this little contraption. it’s a no-brainer.

after our productive afternoon, we hit the town for our friend jess’ 30th birthday party! it was SO fun. we went to this little place called the cellar in burlington. we drank. we danced. we had a blast. oh, and we took pictures.
p.s. i wore my little booties again last night and i’m even more in love with them. they’re amazing. i would highly recommend purchasing a pair.
and hopefully we’ll wear them on the same day. and we can say we didn’t plan it.
have a fabulous sunday lovies!
