Ah, Mondays.

Michael and I try to take Mondays off. I normally work all day on Saturdays and he works all day Sunday… so once Monday roles around, it’s time for a break.  He is currently downstairs showing off with the Kitchen-aid mixer and making pretzels while I’m getting ready to hang curtains.  I realized our roles are somewhat reversed today but I love it. Decorating the house and trying to find a home for ALL of my clothes is challenging but it’s fun! I love living here and I can’t wait to show pictures of the newly decorated Alsop home! I especially can’t WAIT to show you the Studio! I love it! I actually have a DESK… a REAL DESK! It’s amazing!

The Bride’s Cafe

Last night I had the privilege of hanging out with the fabulous Janie Medley of the Brides Cafe as she hosted a night of shopping at the Shortpump Jcrew. I spent too much $$ but I loved being there! I ALSO had the privilege of meeting my friends Jodi and Kurt!  That’s right, we were friends before we met…Jodi and I have emailed on several occasions and have tried to meet up but it just never happened…until last night! I walked in the door and there they were! And what a sweet couple they are! Jodi and Kurt will be married ONE WEEK after Michael and I and Janie is doing their flowers as well! I cannot wait to see how their wedding turns out!

Missing it.

I miss college.  I don’t miss the classes or the papers or the stress, just the people… those amazing people.  I have heard that you meet the most amazing friends in college and that was so true for Michael and I.  Our friends feel like our family and we consider them family.  College for us wasn’t just about hanging out and having a good time, we formed relationships with people that we know we’re going to keep in touch with forever.  I mean that. F-O-R-E-V-E-R.  I know it’s hard to do.  Life happens, schedules get crazy, people start having babies (aah!!!)… but we’re going to keep in touch.  Today I got a chance to talk to one of my roommates who has been
