Well I guess this is growing up

Last week was Jamie’s birthday, so we stuffed ourselves full of fondue at Gejas and had a vegan Mexican-themed meal at Megan’s. After polishing of the Sangria, we took to reading one of Megan’s informational books, The Feminist’s Perspective on the Body. We learned a lot from the photos and their captions. (Can you ever really know enough about your vagina or anyone else’s?)

Jamie said all she wanted for her birthday was to find a new apartment. We’d been looking for a week with no luck, but ironically, found one before we went to dinner on the night she indeed turned 25. It’s incredible with so much space, and in our neighborhood with perhaps an even better location. And central air, which our current landlords informed us they are finally putting in our building, just after we leave (of course.)

I’m really very excited to have a porch. It faces a small little brick coach house, so it’s very private with a vine-covered gate. Three weeks is so long to me right now, especially as our home is becoming more barren by the day. We are cleaning, selling, giving, etc., and it’s giving way to much discussion on new furniture and  what kind of colors and the merits of paint vs. wallpaper. Apartment Therapy is my new best friend.

This weekend, we host my sister’s baby shower. I can’t believe she’ll be popping out a child in a month’s time. My mom and aunt are coming in, and will surely be glad we sold our bedframe. At least we’ve kept our mattress (for now).
