& so it ends... [extremely long, picture heavy, post!]

and i'm back.

last week included: several trips to lowes, making yummy homemade dinners, trying to be productive and tidy, etc etc etc. i cant remember all of the details, but ill write about the ones i do. i really just needed a break from the internet world for a while. between being stressed about homework, work, getting sick, working on & selling mike's house, getting my macbook & belongings back from california, etc... i just wanted to crawl into bed each night with a movie and not even think about what was going on in cyberspace.

Wednesday or Thursday: we went to Lowe's to get organizing things and shelves and such to build up in the bathroom. then we came home and made the yummy wild rice tempeh stirfry, but this time we used PINEAPPLE [!!!] and Sweet & Sour sauce rather than Stir Fry sauce. it was so good. as usual.

Friday: regular ol' work day. i went to art history 2 in the morning, went to the gym with Merissa after, and then headed home to shower, run errands, etc. we had a good little work out and work was so-so. luckily it flew by pretty quickly.

Saturday: woke up super sore, tried to take care of some business, went up to Nashville to mike's house where he and his dad were working on it. Hung around with them for a bit and then left for work because I had to work for Angie. I had to be there at 5 so i sped the hour south and sat at the bar for about 3.5 hours before it started getting busy. my view:

Luckily i made really really good money for the weekend so that was helpful. I came home and it was raining up a storm. thats such an awful, long drive to take at 3am when its storming. we crawled into bed and woke up at a decent time on Sunday to go back to nashville. I was going to spend the day at Panera doing homework, but i felt like he could use my help painting and cleaning. We loaded up Baby G and headed that way. We stopped to get supplies and then we painted/cleaned and ate Blue Coast for dinner. We managed to make a bit of progress so we came back home.

Georgia has never experienced a backseat of a car [since my car is a 2 seater]. she was ecstatic to see that she could watch everything going on around the car.

She literally sat in the bathroom like this alllll night. it was sooooo funny!

Mike's 7th grade photo in the yearbook! eeep! he has no idea i took this picture hahahahahaha

Also, we have really really silly text conversations...

This is why i love him.

Yesterday was an optional-attendance day in Print 2... so most of us didnt go. 2 people did, poor guys! I went to the coffee shop to do some work, then I went to do errands and up to Nashville to keep Mike company. I took my sewing machine and junk so that I could sew up some little creations. I made Kayce an adorable bird for her birthday, and I made an apron.

It's nothing to really write home about, but i had fun making it [and more fun wearing it while we cooked last night!] and i was proud of the way it turned out. I'm thinking about adding suspender style straps with big white buttons to it so they can be put on or taken off. :) Someone suggested making them for my Etsy but I dont know if anyone would buy my silly aprons haha

Last night I noticed a ton of MTV trucks across teh street from my house, so my friend Caitlin came over and she, Mike, My roommate Kayla and I went snoopin... turns out John Mayer is doing CMT Crossroads with Keith Urban today. we snuck around and heard the rehearsal and such, doting around all the tour buses and what not. The plan is to go to the O'More space today and see if we cant get a peek. [I took 19 minutes worth of video of us going around there haha]

Right now i'm having to deal with a less-than-cooperative ex who is doing practically everything he can to make my life miserable. I hate how I still have ties with the past because he has something valuable of mine and pretty much just dangles it over my head just to keep me around in his life. I know Mike can sympathize, even though his situation is much more serious. But still... Its so frustrating to know that you spent 3 years of your life with someone and he/she can't manage to be an adult and help keep the stress level at a minimum. It also amazes me that just 3 months ago I was kissing this person goodbye at the San Francisco airport and the last we saw of each other, we had tears streaming down our faces. And now it's practically World War 3. Although now he "wants to see me" before he leaves town again. UGH.

I feel myself getting really sick. I was up most of the night coughing and sneezing and my throat was quite sore. I hate being congested and sick and I feel a fever coming on. Not the prime time for it because I have so much I need to do.

Okay.. I think i may go meet the girls at Sweet CeCe's for our weekly trip and then I may go to Nashville [yet again] if i dont go to the O'More space for the homework party. I NEED to do homework, but I feel so sick that I dont know if I should be around everyone. bleh!

Happy Tuesday! <3


  1. So I can understand the stress of school and stuff, hope it gets better <3

    Your hair looks AMAZING in the pic with you and Mike. And that pic of Georgia and the "youlegy" from Mike had me laughing my ass off.

    I'm sorry you're getting sick,but if it makes you feel better, your apron is adorable and I would SO buy one!

    Oh and I had CeCe's in CA... it is AMAZING!

  2. cute pictures! Your apron is so good!

    I hope you are not getting sick!

    love the post :D


  3. seletha: thank you! :D :D :D mike had no idea about those texts... until now hahahahahaha

    carrie: thanks lady! <3 <3

  4. My pug does what your puppy does! She loves going for rides in the car/backseat and sits just like that! It's the cutest thing.

  5. I know how it is, dealing with an ex that owes you. My ex owes me $700 and after TWO years I've finally let it go. I know it's hard when you're right and you deserve it, but Adam is probably only using the money/computer to keep in touch and torture you. You gotta drop the desire to force him to do the right thing because he won't and it's just going to drive you nuts. Tell him to contact you if he ever decides to do the right thing, and remove all contact. I'm sorry if this is too forward, but you seem to make your own money girl!! Pain/annoyance isn't worth $$!!!

  6. that apron is adorable! i can't/don't cook, ever, but i would totally buy one just to hang it up in my kitchen.

  7. anon/tinyshark: you're totally right. if i dont get a tracking number like he claims on friday, im probably just going to cease contact completely.

    lizzie: thanks! :D hha you totally sound like me! [i was wearing it... but mike was totally cooking! ha]

  8. Your text conversation is funny!! Me and hubby have funny ones occasionally but I don't think I've ever had a mouse eulogy lol.


HEY! Thanks for dropping by. xo KB
