2 years

RSlo and I are celebrating our 2 year anniversary on Saturday!

It doesn't feel like it's been 2 years and I love hanging around him, seeing him smile, and laughing with him. He really is my best friend and I am my happiest with him even if we aren't doing anything. We've been through the end of grad school, a year of long distance, and now working together and I feel like we've gotten stronger. Nothing is ever perfect and we've both got faults but we work hard to communicate, respect, and love each other.

Happy Anniversary RSlo :)

Date night

So RSlo and I decided to do date night a while ago (who has time for that now?) and treated ourselves to the movie Julie and Julia. We talked about grabbing dinner after the film but were so inspired by the film and the cooking that we decided to make our own meal! We got out of the movie sort of late and had to rush to the supermarket to get all the ingredients, but we decided on Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce, roasted potatoes, and bruschetta for appetizer. We split up and took on tasks, RSlo was in charge of the appetizer and nervous as I was about messing it up, I took on the entree. One of the things that I learned from the film was that you want to give mushrooms room to cook when sauteing them so I kept saying "don't crowd the mushrooms" as we cooked. Not only was the meal delicious and I was starving, but it was fun having a cooking partner. RSlo even let me wear his apron, which is a very big deal. It was a great date night and I was able to see the results of my hard work! I have included pictures for all of you to enjoy!

RSlo's apron, I am in the process of getting my own which will be a whole lot cuter

Bruschetta, Yum! RSlo did a good job 

Hard away at work cooking

Move- In

The students are moving in today! The past two weeks have been the busiest, but I am loving every minute of it...except when I have meltdowns.

Reminds me of when I first moved in to college and how excited I was and how everything was beginning to change. I love this time of year!

Summer's Over

So summer is coming to close and my what a summer it has been....

Awesome vacations to new and old places. Spending quality time with friends and family, and a major move.

With the end of summer brings new experiences. In 4 days, I will get 250 new neighbors, in the form of residents of my building. I am excited and while many people would think I am crazy to be looking forward to living with so many 18 year olds, I think it will be fun and they will keep me young....

Famous last words...
