Bye 'til August!

Hi Friends. This is going to be a "HI" and a "BYE" for the duration of this week.

I so wish I could mix blogging with other endeavors but... it just won't do. It's a prolific week in my social life (that sounds lame but it will make more sense next week - though it will definitely still sound lame) AND I'm getting Keys to my new Apartment this week! I'm moving into a Studio Downtown to live all by my lonesome. I'm really, really happy with the place I've found; it's so adorable and in walking distance to my best friends, my gym, good restaurants and shops... oh I'm excited.
{pretttty much me packing except I'm fatter and do not own a hula hoop. As of right now, I'm wondering why.}

So while I pack and do everything I need to do, I'm going to spare myself the stress of trying to Blog and just sign off for a week! Besides, next week as I'll have new digs- I'll have something to actually write about. Whereas if I did it this week, every post would begin with "packing is hard".
But before I go, R-I-Sweet-P Amy Winehouse. I wasn't a mega-fan of hers but beyond her amazing voice which I enjoyed, I always had an attraction to her fabulous dark hair and her triumphant use of eyeliner (two of my fave things). When I hear of people lost to addiction, it makes me want to hug the people in my life who have already taken steps to avoid that path. RIP.
And finally, I think Mother Nature reads my Blog as she's been pumping out some Sun lately for us and I plan on enjoying it. I'll always forgive a Gal who rights her wrongs!

See you in August!

Megan said...

jealous of your move downtown by yourself ;-) good luck with it!

i was actually quite a fan of amy's when her last album came out. i was more intrigued by her than anything else...her hair, her style, everything about her. it's quite sad, but unfortunately, not surprising.

have a great week girl!!!

Good luck with the move GF. Taking a few days sounds like the best plan for sure. And yes--super sad about Amy Winehouse. No matter what her personal issues, it's the loss of a human life and that is always sad.

Good luck with the move, Caitlin!! Your new place sounds dreamy - exactly the kind where I'd love to be living too! Hope you post pics of it, I'm curious :)

Tina said...

Sad to say Amy's misguided fans have been laying cigarette packets and bottles of vodka outside of her home…. Can’t her disciples see that even if she had lived longer she had already destroyed what gifts she had through booze and drugs…..silly girl…

I was fortunate enough to see her sing live about 4 years ago when she still could and then again 2 years ago where she was barely capable of making it on stage for just one song…

Awe, congratulations on the new place! Hope the move goes smoothly! And a new place is the perfect reason to celebrate with a cocktail on a patio...Hopefully you'll have time for some of that since Mother Nature is no longer PMS-ing! :)

For a few (what now seem brief) periods over 4 decades ago, for a while, I lived in a small apartment or a room - or a car a couple of times. After living in a large house and then moving everything wound up in boxed. I think some of it may still not be unpacked. Moving is a nightmare if you hold on to things neurotically as I do. Good luck with your move. I don't know much about what it's like where you're moving from and to, but I hope it turns out well. What does your guy think of it? It does sound nice being close to things you like to do.

That was such sad news about Amy. I did a blog post on her passing myself even though it was totally unrelated to the theme of my blog. Fashion Whore did a post too and embedded the video "Back To Black" which I then favourited on my YouTube channel, putting it at the top of my favourites. Loved that eyeliner of hers. I really liked her. She was herself.

Best of luck with your move.

Congrats on the new apartment! I such a city girl at heart, totally wanna live downtown, yet I live in "Laveen", where I swear there are more cows than people. Have fun packing. & its so sad about Amy. I wasn't a huge fan, but I did enjoy her music, & deff her big hair/eyeliner.

Good job on all of your packing - you're moved and now all you have to do is unpack, which I know is killer hard. I have faith in you. ;)
