Independence, Babies and Rearranging

Last night our neighbors were having a tree cut down, which I am not happy about because it was a pretty tree and I love the look of our street with the trees (I sound like a treehugger but I'm okay with that!), anyways the tree fell on the power line that is connected to our house.  We didn't have any power and it blew most of our circuits and appliances!  Not happy! :(

All last week I felt like a big pile of poo, it was just that time of the month so it was nice to get out this weekend. Most all of my weekends are spent with Phil, very rarely do we spend them apart, actually I don't think we have spent a weekend apart unless Phil was out of town for business.  Saturday we did our separate things because I had a hair appointment in Indy and Phil had a work engagement.  Early Saturday I went and got new glasses and because I'm always so behind on weekend recap posts, I already picked them up.  

I've already talked about how much I love my hair dresser Brenna, she is just so amazing with hair! Since the cash flow is low these days saving for vacations I just did I trim. My hair has never been this healthy...I can actually brush my hair without it being a total birds nest, I owe it all to Brenna!  I love it and it makes my life so much easier.  I went and met up with my old rooms Amy to check out her newish place and to see my cat that she kindly adopted when I moved in with Phil.  Sadly he is allergic to cats, which makes me sad but at least I can go visit.  Do cats remember people because I feel like she remembered me! She sat with me the whole time and even sat on my shoulders.  She's a total psycho cat by the way, I don't know what's with me and having crazy animals but they just gravitate towards me.  Not sure what that says about me...but I'll leave it at that
Just hanging with my lil girl Cayuga, named after Cayuga Lake in Upstate NY
She had to get ready for a wedding so then I went over to my brother Liam's place to hang out with my niece and nephew! I can't get over how big they are getting! Why must they grow up so fast? 

They love their bikes!
Next stop was to meet up with my girl Megan, we worked together at my previous job and both got the hell out of there. Anyways I wanted to catch up with her because her and her fiance postponed their Wedding and she is a total wreck, which I would be too in that situation.  Honestly though I didn't know what to say to her because nothing you say is going to make her feel better.  It's supposed to be a happy time and all that jazz but instead she's moving in with her brother and drinking lots of vodka, rum and bourbon.  You know all the strong stuff.  I really hope they can work things out because I know how much she loves him and wants to be with him, plus I thought they were a good match.  You never know what happens behind closed doors. 

After that I was so ready to get back him and see my bf!  Haha I'm so lame but I just love hanging out with him! Our options our limited as to what the heck to do in our town so we decided to go check out the Hog Festival, which is basically a big motorcycle fest where people who have bikes get together.  There are tons and tons of bikes and some a really bad rock band.  It just was not my cup of tea, and besides I was cold because I did not dress for the fall weather.  We decided to meet up with a few people at a local bar called Folkies which is your typical townie type bar.  Apparently they have crab races and is a must see....only in my town does this stuff exist, I swear I can't make these things up.

Sunday we hit up our usual breakfast spot, Bob Evans, which has now become our Sunday tradition. Afterwards I got in a cleaning mood, which doesn't happen often.  Phil and I got rid of all our area but our pups have ruined them with the stench of urine and poo. I polished all the floors and for a while we have been wanting to move our tv room in the room next to the kitchen.  It just makes more sense to have the two rooms closer and its so much better for entertaining and just the day to day flow.  Plus now we have a spare bedroom for friends and family to stay!  It ended up being a bigger project than I thought but it was so worth it!  We both love it, it just feel more like a home! We need to get a new media center,  a chair for the room, an area rug (hopefully they pups wont try to mark there territory on it!) and a new L shaped couch!  I'm really into renovating and redecorating the house so its more "ours".  The bachelor pad has got to go! If anyone has some great ideas or websites of fun, mid-century modern furniture let me know!  It's a work in progress and needs some more TLC but we're working on it! 



  1. Love the wall mounted tv! I need to do that with mine one day..
