My great mistake, the fault for which I can't forgive myself, is that one day I ceased my obstinate pursuit of my own individuality // Oscar Wilde

ATL was a blur. And so are the photos.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageThis weekend, Kalah and I took a mini trip to ATL to pick up Alyssa from the airport. It was short and blurry; just like the photos! We started the night at Joe’s for martinis, saw a Drag show at Blake’s (which was a ton of fun), and shopped as fast as possible on Saturday. I got a camera bag (at Rag-o-Rama), finally! It isn’t an actual camera bag, so I will be making removable foam pads to keep my camera safe. Did I mention we got coffee? Per usual, multiple coffee stops were made. This time, Java Lords (a little disappointing) and Condesa. Overall, a successful trip!

I could have danced, danced, danced all night.

So many beautiful things to report–other than my tests. Birthday celebrations continued between cramming for midterms.

Nadene, Alyssa, Sara, and I made dinner on Thursday night. I finally got to make the Smitten Kitten recipe I’ve been talking about since this post!

Note: I’m going to try to revive my very aged digital camera and see if I can get better photos with that than my iPhone.

Nadene had a yummy recipe for Shepherd’s pie!

(the BB pie was Sara’s vegetarian version)

I got to come home for the weekend! Yay! It was lovely to see everyone! Friday night, I got Bandito and had Lefthand Milk Stout, courtesy of Nicholas. Then, we had a group of people watch The Human Centipede. Luckily, everyone talked enough that I hardly focused on the movie. Which was gross. And disturbing.

On Saturday night, after a full day of shopping with my family, we saw one of my favorite plays, My Fair Lady with my older sister, Kelsey, and my Nana.

I could have danced all night, I could have danced all night, & still have begged for more. I could have spread my wings & done a thousand things I’ve never done before.

In progress / Sundays are for sewing.

This weekend has been a blur. I’m pretty sure my original plans included

  • not waiting until last-minute to study for a big test
  • painting my fingernails
  • working (as usual)
  • thrifting
  • doing birthday tasks with Alyssa
  • Plus a lot of sewing.

I accomplished a few of these things! Beer and pizza for birthday, thrifting EVERY DAY, and a bit of sewing for the upcoming Maker’s Market. The others, however…we shall not continue discussing. I prefer to focus on what was accomplished. And continue to ignore the rest.


This up-cycling thing is so incredibly addictive.

There is so much to be done.

A great weekend, spent.

This weekend has been so enjoyable–my older sister, my mom, and my grandmother all came to visit! They got in around dinner time on Friday, and we spent our first evening eating sandwiches and watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Downton Abbey.

We also looked at hundreds, possibly thousands, of photos of teacup animals. I WANT A TEACUP SMOOSH-FACE KITTY. I am prepared to spend my meager life savings on one. Here are some links to the BEST websites, for those of you that are also interested in becoming a miniature cat lady.

My sister was also intrigued by this Miniature Schnauzer website.

The afternoon was spent apartment-hunting and shopping. By dinner time, we were all exhausted and ordered-in Chinese. We are now finishing the night off with Fried Green Tomatoes and Jane Eyre.

Evelyn Couch: Hey! I was waiting for that spot! 
Girl #1: Face it, lady, we’re younger and faster! 
[Evelyn rear-ends the other car six times
Girl #1: What are you doing
Girl #2: Are you crazy
Evelyn Couch: Face it, girls, I’m older and I have more insurance.

Rochester: I offer you my hand, my heart. Jane, I ask you to pass through life at my side. You are my equal and my likeness. Will you marry me? 
Jane Eyre: Are you mocking me? 
Rochester: You doubt me. 
Jane Eyre: Entirely. 

What a lovely weekend it has been–only to be followed by a mountain of homework.
