Alright, it has been far too long since my last post, but I am going to attempt to make up for that with pictures of my weekend! WOOOO!
So, as I mentioned last week, I went to California this weekend.
(photo pulled from the same place this incredibly accurate article about California from Cracked came from)
Anyways, on Friday, I was pretty bored and ready to get on the road to CA. However, this weekend put me through the ringer (I currently am functioning on 2 hours of sleep and we all learned how bad THAT was)….
I am pretty sure I haven’t tried to make it through a day with that little sleep since college. Anyways though, worth it, because we got a new bed out of it. Which is why we got home so late, because we had to get a Uhaul and pack the bed up at my dads, but not until after taking full advantage of the truck, and packing up furniture from my mom’s house and taking it to my dads to trade out.
The bed we got is one of the most comfortable things I have ever slept on. It is, however the same bed the Princess and the Pea slept on, I am convinced. It is OBNOXIOUSLY tall, and I really wish the picture did it more justice:
Well, other than that though, my weekend was good for the most part. The room we cleaned out was actually my bedroom for a little while before I moved to AZ (around 2006). Since then, it was inherited by my sister, and while I love her, man that girl can make a mess. So we cleaned out the room, and started turning it into a workspace for my mom.
(sorry I don’t have a before pic, I forgot to take one… Just imagine there is ANOTHER desk, and a bunk bed and a mountain of books/paper/clothes/old food/a cat/etc in there)
Cleaning that room was good and weird for me. Because it was my room before, there were some old things of mine that I didn’t even realize I had. Lots of obscure stuff, like old clothes and a journal from Jr. High and some old pictures:
The thing that made it weird though, is apparently I kept this pile of crap from my ex-boyfriend that I have since forgotten about ever owning. There was a birthday card he gave me with lots of heart-felt things written inside, and also some pictures of us from Christmas and one of those photo booth strips (with a pic of us kissing! WTF!). I can honestly say I am over the whole fiasco – I mean, it’s been YEARS, but still, seeing stuff like that out of the blue is startling. I won’t lie… I was distracted the for a lot of the day.
However, I did have my AWESOME current boyfriend with me, and seeing him instantly made me feel better. I seriously am the luckiest girl alive.
Besides the cleaning though, I did have time to hit the gym with my sister. It was a good bonding time. She talked to me about a lot of stuff happening in her life, and we also pumped some iron ;) We even took a pic in the locker room to prove we were at the gym! hahaha!
The sad part about the weekend is I did gain 1 pound back which I will be discussing in a weigh-in post pretty soon. However, I would say it was a pretty successful trip! :)
