Hey there y’all! I’ve been MIA the past two days (minus that hilarious ducky video) due to hijinx in Chapel Hill for UNC’s first Football Game!. We had a FANTASTIC first game, spanking the James Madison Dukes 42-10. I’ve got plenty to say about that in a different post, but today’s topic is much more grown-up than that!!
All that tasty tailgate food filled me up yesterday, so I decided to take it easy this morning with a delicious breakfast sandwich.
The Morningstar Hot and Spicy Sausage patties are my jam lately. I love the extra kick from the crushed red peppers in the ingredient list, and pairing it with a sweet bagel thin and the savory egg was a perfect way to start my morning.
I needed the fuel because I had some serious tasks to attack this morning (which blended into the afternoon as well).
- Hang up my Jellyfish tapestry (given to me by my mother!)
- Clean out my closet/shelves and even the spacing out (no boy in the house = DOUBLE CLOSET SPACE!!) (But truly I miss the heck outta him.)
- Set up my TV
This lovely piece is now hanging proudly above my fireplace thanks to a 59 cent wooden dowel from Michael’s.
Up next, a much scarier project to tackle…. My clothes.
I have way more clothes than I probably need and, because of that, can get away with not doing laundry super often. When I DO get on a laundry kick, though, I do it on a massive scale. Once the clothes are clean, though, it’s the putting away that I tend to put off. 3 loads later, I had piles of clothes all over the floor/couch/chairs. This was a biggie.
Shirts on the right, dresses on the left, other random stuff scattered about. It’s a work in progress, but a HUGE improvement from the clothing war-zone (complete with shirt shrapnel).
Armed only with a screwdriver (my only tool in the entire apartment. Note to self: get on that!) I opened up the four different sets of directions (each more confusing looking than the last). I finally found one that was just pictures, and decided that was right up my alley.
Well, one episode of Mad Men later (viewed on my computer, of course), TA DA!!
I still need to get a few cables in order to really watch TV BUT baby steps, right?
All sorts of big girl things are going on in my neck of the woods, but I think this is a good start.
Now onto some more “big girl things”. Like shopping and getting froyo.
Any big things going on in your life? Big decisions? Moves? School? DISH!
