the <3 & karma aren't always friends

i recently learned that a friend of mine and his girlfriend (who also is a friend) are having marital (shall i call it marital if they aren't married?) issues. well they have been having them on and off for years now, and it seems as though they keep getting worse, despite numerous attempts to rectify things.

sadly enough, i dont feel sorry for them. that may sound like the worst thing for a person to say about someone elses' sorrows and woes, but i really don't feel upset for them in the slightest. because when you play with fire, you will eventually get burned.

to: mother nature - please stay the way you are right now, because you're truly wonderful.

its coming together

we finally found and purchased curtains for the living room window. its only taken us a month to find some that we both liked and we both felt was a "decent" price to pay for curtains, because I didnt want to spend bookoos and then the kitties find them to be something fun to play in. but yes we found some, and even have them up already. They look great and have taken away that awful glare on the tv. Even the apartment is dark now when its time to get shut eye. :) now just need some for the bedroom and we will be one step closer to it looking and feeling like a complete home.

this is what they look like, just not our apartment

the weather has been absolutely wonderful. between all the rain that we really really need, and the much cooler weather, it really couldnt be better. well it could. it could stay cool ALL the time, but meh it being 80's and July/August is WONDERFUL! And if anyone reading this is from the south you know exactly what I mean.

off to grab some breakfast coffee <3

optimism is prime

so recently I have become ever so addicted to watching the shows on the Bravo channel. Like my mind gets entrapped in the drama from all the reality shows that I could literally spend hours watching and watching.

My guilty pleasure has become NYC Prep. I'm not quite sure why, but I love it. Maybe its the fact of it being NYC, and I love everything NYC. Like enough to marry it! :) I think the fact that these kids have more money than they need and their egos are much bigger than any normal adults, just baffles me, and makes me want to watch more of it. I must say Camille is one of those girls that will never figure it out, or probably will never find a man to put up with her. Last night I watched her go on this date with a guy, that PC had set her up with. This poor guy didnt have a clue. He made the mistake of asking Camille what her hobbies were and the date went down hill from there. I tend to think that some of the kids make it seem that they are being "players" and see more "action" than they really do. Who knows. I'm still intrigued.

I can't wait for Real Housewives NJ & NYC to start back up for another season.

Damon is looking at another job opprotunity which would allow him to live more of a normal life than he lives right now. It would have all the perks of a normal "career," like benefits AND vacation. And we all know people love those things. Right now he has neither and couldnt even think about even getting close where hes at. Hopefully this works out, because life would run a little smoother for both of us I think. And maybe then we can venture up to NYC soon for a vacation. That would be awesome!! <3

Next week (Friday, 24th) is the birthday for one of the girls at work and I'm responsible for bringing in goodies for her little celebration. I'm thinking and thinking of options. She doesn't like chocolate. So we shall see what fun, festive, yummy treats I come up with.

My birthday is in 8 days. Yay. Then I'm 25. Should I be excited? Because, meh, I really personally am like whatever this year. Damon told me to come up with a list of items I wanted. Nothing too exciting.

- Forever 21 gift card
- Avocado peeler
- Kitchen Shears

Yea. I know. I'm getting old.

french beignets and kirklands

moving into the apartment last tuesday basically took everything i had. but going up and down flights of stairs all day will probably do that to anyone who doesnt do it regularly. we finally were moved in and unpacked by about 11PM that same day, so i am pretty freakin proud we got it all moved in one day. we still have a few things of mine to get from my parents house, but nothing major there, except some good antiques.

the new apartment is absolutely wonderful.. everything about it is amazing and a million times better than the other place. its a quiet building, 1st floor, fluffy pretty carpet, huge bathrooms/closets, pantry and a dining room for the lovely table we purchased off of craigslist. the only downfall was we realized it didnt have a microwave (weird right?), so he got one from his mom & stepdad for his birthday.

once we get settled more and i remember to take pictures i will for all to see.. The babies, Moose and Dexter, absolutely love the new apartment.. I have seen a 180 in Moose since we have moved.. He is so much more lively these days, and he ACTUALLY mews now. Dexter just suns now in the giant windows.. Lazy Ol Cat!

Damon's birthday is Thursday (Happy early Bday Babe!) and it seems as though we have a million people to eat dinner with, only its just his dad and then his mom.. Him having two sets of parents is something I am still getting somewhat used to. I was always used to one dinner for everything growing up and its multiplied now.

I found this amazing nail polish made by Flossie out of Florida that I must order..

isnt it lovely???? I love Tiffany Blue, always have, and now that I have a nail polish thats like exactly it without like being exactly Tiffany's own, I must have it! And for $2 its even better.

RIP MJ. I watched blips of the memorial/listened in the background at work today.. I just about boohooed when his daughter, Paris spoke.. Ugh! Tug at the heart strings will you.. I think I may have an old school MJ music night during dinner.. He was weird and even possibly a perv, but man! he made awesome music! <3
