I like it anyway

My life is in transition

an awkward one.

Transition from childhood to puberty kind of awkward.

Move back in with the parents kind of awkward.

Oops I thought I locked the bathroom door, but I obviously didn't because you just saw me on the toilet kind of awkward.

Fine Features of Our Finite Flat

Alliteration. Sigh. So satisfying.

Our lives are now contained within four cinder block walls.  They are squished, but they feel like home now.  I shall share them with you.

Wall #1 The West Wall...
Tie rack (Accented by the lovely "Nuns Having Fun" Calendar)
Fireplace (This is my favorite feature of the west wall. It inspires a cottage like coziness)
Laundry Collection
Wardrobe/Closet ($50 at IKEA. Sweet right?!)
Paintball Stuff Storage
(Not Pictured: The loft)

Wall #2 The North Wall...
Plastic storage bin
Bookshelf (My favorite feature of the north wall. A library in the making.)
Bed side table
Most fluffiest of beds of all time
Back right surround sound speaker

Wall 3 The East Wall...
Mostly the most fluffy bed
Smaller bookshelf with the boring stuff
But also...Window (host to my stain glass lamp and scentsy pot. Don't mind the chords.)
Decorative shelf (Featuring:African mask and fertility dolls, The Living Christ, an original Kelly   Donovan painting, The Family, A Proclamation to the World, cool glass bottles, front left surround sound speaker.)

 Wall #4 The South Wall...(The least attractive and least loved wall)
The beloved 42' inch T.V.
Entertainment center
Basket of things that should really be put away
Mini-window with the A/C unit
Also, The front right surround sound speaker

And that is our grand tour!

Yay for tight spaces.

It makes the love grow right?

And as a parting gift...
My favorite special feature EVER

The skylight
Goob threw a snowball through it 3 years ago.
He hurried and fixed it exactly as you see it before the parentals got home.
They didn't find out for two years.
Never leaked a drop.

Secret Pockets

I haven't posted in a while.

Bashful face.


Here are the treasures that were in my (new) purse after my magical trip to New York City.

1. My wallet, which I could do a post about all in itself because I love it so much. Isn't it preeeety?

2. Super Mario themed candy tins. Sadly they are no longer in my possession.

3. The Book of Mormon. My days just don't go quite right if I don't have my nose in there for at least a few minutes, so I take in everywhere with me.

4. The Ipod. Word.

5. I have this with me at all times. The Sonic Screwdriver. If you don't know....shame, shame on you.

6. The program for WICKED!!!! I smiled like my mouth was stuck that way. Happy. That's what I was.

7. The New York Yankees pen that I was given and instructed (with slow and carefully articulated words) to only use myself. I think it might implode and create a black whole if I let anyone else use it.

8. That little man got me to the top of the empire state building. It was two things. Beautiful and chilly.

9. Related to the little man above, but different. There is a skyride on the second floor of the empire state building, and this was my ticket. I was touched by many asians. They pushed. I pushed back.

10. The menus to a Macaroni and Cheese (S'mac) place, and a Burger and Cupcake shop (BuCu). Who could not leave pleased? And yes.....the trip was 50% about the food.
