New Apartment

Drumroll please . . . . my apartment is completely set up! 
We moved in about a week ago and have been slowly but surely unpacking ever since.
Here's a little tour:

I can't believe we're finally all moved in.
I feel like an actual grown up now!

Last First Day of School

Today is my very last first day of school. 
I don't know if I should laugh or cry but to be honest, I'm a senior so I just don't care. My classes just happen to start after noon (with no careful planning on my part), so I got to sleep in and enjoy a little lunch in the sun.

 Armed with my trusty necklace from Cinderella in the Bahamas and my new grown up-real life bag, that is big enough to fit anything and everything with space to spare, it was time.  

 I did manage to snag one last "I'm on my way to the first day of school" picture for Mom though.

First Day of Work

Today was my first day at a new job. I had butterflies fluttering around all day yesterday, I couldn't fall asleep last night,  and I overestimated my "getting ready time" this morning by a good hour.
 While I was nervous I'd get a flat tire on my way there, blurt out some unfiltered comment, and sneeze right before a  hand shake, I was also freaking out about what to wear. 
After an amount of time that I refuse to say, I pulled this together and called it a day. 

Despite the fact that I felt like I was pitiful heroine in a guilty pleasure chick flick this morning, I arrived on time, didn't trip, didn't stutter, and didn't spill a single thing on me. 
By my standards, that makes this a successful day.

Last Week of Summer

This week was the last week of summer. We finally got to move into our apartment and spent the first weekend running around, decorating and getting whatever we forgot. That left this past week open to do whatever we wanted. 
While some shenanigans were had . . .

 . . . it was really a week of catching up, doing nothing, and sleeping in. 
And food. Lots and lots of food. 

Tomorrow we all have to enter the real world again. 
Wish me luck!

Navy Pier

This summer was the first one in three years that my roommate Mileva and I weren't able to get together and have an adventure. Between work, traveling and bad timing we had to remain completely apart for three months. 
Now that we're finally reunited and just starting to settle into apartment life we decided to jump on the train to do one quick trip before classes start. Our destination: Navy Pier. 

We spent the day walking around, eating, catching up, and just enjoying the sun.  

 I know I'm probably the last person to discover this but Chunky Monkey ice cream is pretty much life changing.  

After years of searching, I finally found it! My dream ice cream cone. I know it may seem like I'm jumping into this quickly but I'm pretty sure this was love at first sight. 

 It was the most perfect day for wandering around Navy Pier and, despite the numerous blisters all over my poor little feet, it was by far our best summer adventure yet. 
I'm terribly excited to finally be reunited with my wine drinking, movie quoting, SNL loving roommate.  The best is yet to be!
