Do you ever sit down at your blog and realize you haven't written in ages? I just did that. It hurts.
I know. 5 days a week. It's supposed to happen. But it hasn't been for the simple reason that I've been so dang busy running around living life, by the time I get back to my bed at the end of the day, I'm so tired I can't keep my eyes open. Right now, I'm sitting here blogging this in yesterday's outfit with crazy hair and morning breath because I fell asleep...not at my house. One minute we were watching Orange is the New Black, the next...zzzzzz...
Before I really get started though, I want to draw your attention to my right sidebar. I have all kinds of new friends hanging out over there. Please take the time to give them a click and see what they're all about. Some of them are from Utah just like me :)
So...What have I been doing for the past two weeks?
Tuesday my baby sister had her high school graduation. It's still tripping me out that she's going to be off to college in the fall. Who gave her permission to become and adult and stuff?
On Saturday we had a party for her that was so much fun, and not just because I was able to take my first trip to the liquor store. Although, it may have had a little something to do with it. After the party, I went up Big Cotton Wood Canyon with some of my old friends for a fire. I had so much fun out there. I was determined to pack my weekend full of fun as it was the first one I've really had off since January. Yep. You read that right. First real weekend off since January.
We slept out under the stars and didn't go home until it started raining on us the next morning. The next day, I had my first experience in a bar. It was kind of late and right before last call, so it wasn't all that exciting, but I was still in a bar for the first time, so that was cool. Sadly, I'm a bad blogger and I haven't really taken any pictures of any of these excursions I've been taking...but it's hard to take pictures when you're so busy living in the moment.
I also went to a pretty cool bar last night for dinner with a fun new friend from Chicago. For all my Utah haters out there, he was pleasantly surprised and thought downtown Salt Lake was a good time. So there.
I do, however, had a picture of my meal at my Brother-in-law's Birthday dinner. We went to a restaurant called Bohemian. Here I gave him and my sister my Tim McGraw tickets as I won't be able to attend...
There I ate a very delicious pork tenderloin and awesome potatoes. It was all sitting in a Jagermeister sauce. The sauce was sooo good. I would have just drank that stuff, good. I also drank a delicious tropicolada with probably half a shot in it that was $7. Tasty though.
Most importantly of all the things I have done in the past two week is this:
I bought a new car!! Well, new to me. It's a 2012 Toyota Corolla. I think I may never buy anything but a Toyota ever again. I love this thing. I even went to the PX the other day to make it officially all mine with this.
Words cannot describe how relieved I feel. My mom drove up to my unit in this car for me to give a test drive and I knew after one second behind the wheel that it was mine. And I'm not going to tell you how much I got it for because I practically stole it. It was that good of a deal.
Okay...I guess I'm done for today. I'm hoping that I'll be able to turn up a little bit this weekend like I did last. But at any rate, you should #backthatazzup with Whitney and tune in to everyone's weekend jamsszz.
