Captain Dusty’s – Manchester-By-The-Sea

nathan, me, amy

I haven’t seen these two in over two years. It’s kind of weird, for my entire freshman year I saw them everyday. Amy and I had a lot of classes together and studied together and ate together and went EVERYWHERE together. We were pretty much inseparable. But since I came back to NC I have not seen her even once. Nathan and I had plenty of fun adventures and great times together as well. I miss both of them. Hopefully I will be heading up north to Boston at the end of June to see Amy while she is in summer school at BU. Can’t wait!

Dear John…

It’s finally summer. Yahooooooooo! We started off our evening at the baseball diamond, kind of fitting for a summer day, huh? I mean, baseball is the classic, summer, all American sport. We watched Mitch’s game (they won!) and then headed home. We got on my huge bed and relaxed and did what we do best: LAUGH. Yep, we traded stories from the semester and busted out laughing. It was great. Then Zizek came up and we decided to destroy that sacrilegious, awful book. We began by ripping the cover off of it and then put in a mud puddle and ran over it in the car. I’m not going to lie, it was fun. Then we went to HT and bought strawberries, magic shell and vanilla icecream to make sundaes! Becca and I picked out ‘Dear John’ and we headed home.

It was GOOD

We weren't quite ready for that picture 🙂

Well, ‘Dear John’ wasn’t what I was expecting. In fact I hated it. However, I really felt like the strawberry, chocolate sundae redeemed the evening 🙂 Haha, no but seriously, ‘Dear John’ was so messed up. I was so sad that Savannah would go and marry Tim. It was tragic and no one was happy. And they needed Jesus. But it wasn’t real, so that’s the good news.

See you later!

My Newest Obsession

Never in my entire life have I ever wanted to spend a single penny on kitchenware. In fact, I have always HATED spending on money on anything other than clothes, travel or food. Sometimes books, but I always preferred to get books as gifts. Wow, that right there folks is a beautiful picture of who I am (NOT)…yeah, anyway, I have never coveted a single pot, pan, serving piece, casserole dish, kitchen appliance, flatware, china, or tea kettle — until now. I always admired pretty dishes and cool appliances, but then thought to myself that I would put them on my wedding registry and worry about it later. Well, now it’s later, but without that nifty thing called a wedding registry where all your family and friends go out and buy the stuff that you need for your new home…well I need some of that stuff, but I’m kind of on my own here. So, for the past couple of months I have been storing up stuff for my apartment (that I’ll have whenever I find that job…) and let me tell you what, I never thought I would actually ENJOY buying pots and pans, but I LOVE it. It’s kind of insane.

Pots and Pans

I have some of these and I love them. I haven’t even used them yet, but I can’t wait to cook with them. Really though I am in love with all of my kitcheny things. It’s great. I’ve also learned to love cooking. I think it’s soo much fun and I’m not all bad anymore. These dishes have also been on my list for a while…

Emma Dinnerware

Yes, I have indeed had my eye on these for a while…Well, that’s all for now — I’m losing steam here, it’s been a loooonnnnnggg day. See you soon!

Life After

Life after…school. I’m finally done with my last semester. It’s been insanely busy and I’m exhausted and glad that it’s over. I can’t say I’ll miss it, but maybe, in due time, I will think fondly of these days. Now that I’m done, you can expect to see much more of me on my blog! Cheers!
