Reasons to Celebrate!

Hi, my friends!! I hope your weekend has been splendid thus far πŸ™‚ I survived class yesterday, thank God. I know I still have two more weeks, three papers, one presentation and one test left – but I can finally see a light at the end of this semester.

After having my butt fall asleep from sitting on it for 6 hours, it was time to celebrate! First off, my BFF Jamie is officially finished with college! She had her last day of student teaching on Friday, so wine and good food were absolutely in order πŸ™‚

I munched on half a sweet potato, a side salad and some ribs.

A fair amount of wine was also consumed πŸ˜‰

Jamie and Cory tease me because I’m such a lightweight, but I hung in there with three glasses of wine! Take that, suckas! πŸ˜‰

Oh, another thing we wanted to celebrate? WE SIGNED A LEASE ON AN APARTMENT!! Friends, I am SO excited! We saw this place on Friday afternoon and we were sold. We slept on it, and decided that it was the place we wanted to be! It’s perfect for us. I had enough forethought to snap some pictures – so let me share some with you!

Here’s part of the bathroom

Part of the den!

I guess I didn’t get a picture of the living room, but it’s quite spacey. There’s a big pantry and a balcony, too – and it’s in a perfect location for us. Needless Β to say, I’m walking on Cloud 9 at the moment πŸ™‚
