Five Things For Friday
1. I cannot get enough of Lady A's "Dancing Away With My Heart" song. In fact, it was one of the reasons I bought tickets to their concert a few Fridays ago. Never mind that when they sang the song, the classy drunk people beside us decided to get in a fight and get themselves kicked out. I tried to ignore them and focus on these gorgeous voices.
2. After the concert, Brandon was hungry. No surprise here. The only places open were fast food restaurants, so In and Out it was. I've known about their secret menu for a while, but I didn't know you could get Neopolitan milkshakes. In and Out is kind of my Chick Fila A of the West Coast - I don't care how bad it is for me, it makes me happy and that's all that matters, right?
3. Our rent has been raised over $200 for next renewal, which resulted in brief addiction to Craigslist searching for a new place to live. We checked out a two-bedroom duplex in our ideal neighborhood (2 miles from my office!) last weekend. I quickly turned it down when it seemed to be missing the essentials; washer and dryer and dishwasher. Oh I should mention the "original" pink tile kitchen countertops. I strongly dislike tile counters (crumbs in grout - ick), especially pink ones. And at $1995/month...no thanks.
Let's just say our apartment hunt is over and we are just going to suck it up and pay the new rent increase. All of the love of my washer and dryer.
4. I love this couch.
5. I spent last weekend finishing up the Spring Cleaning of my bathroom. It included a fun trip to Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond. More on that later.
I seriously think that the quality of my life has improved ten-fold with the simple addition of drawer organizers. Getting ready for work has never been easier.
Now waking up for work...that's always hard.
