apparently all last week i was practically living in my Hunter boots but now they sit prettily on the side while the sun comes out to play in Georgia. no puddles to splash!

apparently baby sisters grow up because mine got a college acceptance letter in the mail today. i repeat, baby sister and college acceptance letter.

apparently apples continue to be my before bedtime snack for the past three weeks.

apparently i was meant to be a Broadway actress because i cannot stop singing the songs from Les Mis - and just singing entirely (i.e. Ryan, what are we cooking for dinner tooooooniiiiiight?! said in sing song voice, of course).

apparently lipstick tubes are my newest obsession. i found 7 different ones in my bag and about 10 more under the bathroom sink and oh, yes another 5 more in another purse.

apparently i am more organized than i thought i was. when you have your own place, you have a tendency to keep things more organized than when you lived back home. (sorry, mom!)

apparently i can be a big whimp. i have had Gone Girl on my night stand for the past two nights, and i just cannot pick it up for the life of me. the first sentence alone creeps me out.

apparently the Kroger Brand of peanut butter cookies is 10x better than any brand name pb cookie dough.

apparently i am a blanket-stealer. when i shared an air-mattress with with Leo at blogger's conference last year, she told me i stole the blankets from her all weekend long - and now, Ryan is dealing with this.

much love
{happy wednesday, friend.}

  8. Love this post! :) Hunter boots are my fav!

  9. oh, gone girl was a pretty good read!! it's also not scary so no worries! :)

    lol my almost-hubby and i go through the same thing. good thing he hates heat and i like sleeping in a blanket burrito? but like, we also now have two blankets in case he actually does want blanket. LOL. poor guys.

    1. ha! blanket burrito, i love it! i call it "cocooning" myself! might need to try the two blanket idea. glad someone else understands! :)

  10. Such a cute post. I'm thinking the same thing about my brother recently - he's a COP. Baby brother, carrying a gun and protecting civilization?! Just crazy! Definitely want a pair of those boots too - it's supossed to rain here this week and I'd love to be spotted in those ;)

  11. I am your sister's age now, getting ready for college!:) I agree, I am much more organized without my parents, sad but true.

  12. Gone Girl is so gooooood!! READ IT!!! Hahaha. Seriously, it's worth it! Just have a happy book read to read afterwards. ;)

    Ah, my little sister is in a 5 year university program & is currently in her 4th year! AHH. Crazy. Seriously. Haha.

    Keith is a blanket hog. & so is Squirt. So, I feel Ryan's pain. ;) (Although sometimes I can be a hog, too. They're bed hogs ALL the time, though!)

  13. Haha my husband can't stop singing the Les Mis songs - he's went to the broadway play years and years ago and has always loved it. And I totally agree - I was such a mess maker back home and now I'm crazy organized. So weird how that happens, haha :)

    I am the same way when my parents go out of town and im all on my own in our house. everything is really organized and clean, then once the rents get home its back to normal less then perfect organization :P
