Mobile Monday and Blog Challenge Update

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I FINALLY got the last of the boxes unpacked at my apartment. Yes, I know, I've been there two months. For the most part it was pretty much done, I just had been lazy about unpacking the crap junk stuff in my bedroom. I also spent a good part of the weekend cleaning my apartment. This might be the time to have people over while it's actually clean! Let's be honest, it won't last long. :)

Thursday night I went to the Mucky Duck in Addison to see my favorite radio duo Ben and Skin. They are hoping to get back on the air next month and I cannot wait. My days are not the same not being able to listen to them!! I hadn't seen them in a long time, so it was good to catch up. It was kinda late when I finally left and I got an escort back to my car so I didn't have to walk by myself (aren't they sweet?) :)
Me and my friend Emily with Ben and Skin
Was able to see my Twitter buddy Austin!
Jessica, Emily, and I after our team won the trivia contest!
Met my Twitter friend Bryan. We discovered that he actually went to high school with one of my cousins. Small world!
Friday evening my friend Art had an extra (free) ticket to the musical Wicked, so I met up with him and his girlfriend to go to Fair Park. I've seen Wicked twice before, but this performance was probably the best one I've ever seen. The whole cast was PHENOMENAL!

Getting ready last minute...
Our view...shh, don't tell anyone I took a picture
Saturday I woke up early (hey- 7am is early for a day where I could have slept in). I finally talked myself into getting out of bed. I may or may not have gone to Whataburger in my PJs. Don't judge. 

I'm terrible about checking my mail, so I went by the box Saturday afternoon and found this gem.

Yes, I own seasons 1-3 as well. I know, I'm a nerd.
I didn't get pictures of my whole apartment, but here are some...

I like that my new kitchen actually has counter space. My old apartment had none.
I like that I can actually see the floor!! :)
I had to wish Steve Avery a happy birthday yesterday. I mean, he is the Avery behind my Twitter and Instagram handle. :)
Blog Challenge Update

Day 12: Something you don't leave your house without

My cell phone. I know, that's sad. But it's true, I always have it.

Day 13: Talk about your piercings/tattoos (if you have any)

My ears are pierced, I have two holes in each ear. I got the first set when I was 16 and the second set when I was 20.

Here's a picture of my tattoo that I got in college.

Okay, so it was a henna tattoo that washed off after a few days...needles freak me out! :)
Day 14: Something you miss from your childhood

I think I just miss being a kid. I miss not having to worry about responsibilities, or a job, or paying bills. I miss being able to go over to my best friend's house and hang out there all afternoon (only to go home and then spend 2 hours on the phone with her). I also miss the innocence. I miss not having to know or worry about all the evil and bad stuff going on in the world. I miss when my only heartache was when Kelly broke up with Zack on Saved by the Bell (don't laugh- that was a very upsetting episode!) 

Day 15: A confession/secret of yours

I have nightlights all around my apartment- kitchen, bathroom, living room, hallway, and study. I hate the dark. I also have to fall asleep with the TV on (I have a timer set so it goes off after an hour or so). Don't laugh.



  1. I don't know why but I thought you actually have a tattoo. Darn it! I can't leave without the same thing. The minute I saw that questions I knew the answer was my phone. You may have noticd that I get seperation anxiety when you take it away from me n the car. LOL
    The apartment looks great!

  2. I don't ever leave with out my phone and the apartment looks great! Happy Monday!

  3. Glad you had a nice weekend and that you got organized. I can honestly say that the next time my apartment gets a really good cleaning will be for your visit. I think my apartment could fit into your room! Haha! Be prepared for how small it is. Oh and I have a nightlight but just 1. Not sure how I feel about the tv on for falling asleep but I do sleep w/ a fan. We'll have to compromise!! :)

    I was shocked about the tat. I wouldn't picture you w/ one at all.

  4. I'm not laughing. I don't like the dark either. I keep a flashlight next to me at night, just in case the power goes out. You never know. :-) And hey, your refrigerator looks just like mine - but I'm assuming they're different photos. lol
