Circa 4 days ago

Yes, 4 days ago, this was happening...


It's true. 
After Coppell, Austin and New York, New York addresses, I now have my very own Dallas address for the first time in my life. And I'm pretty excited about it. 

I'm also sharing a lovely 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom / walk-in closet / washer-dryer included apartment with this birthday girl. YAY!

After a veeeeery full day of moving, we celebrated Lindsey's bday at Neighborhood Services Tavern - quite literally right around the corner from our new place. 

More updates and photos to come once I get some order back in my life. For now, I have no overhead light, lots of boxes, bare walls (you know how I feel about those...), and several bins full of shoes that need to find a home in my glorious new closet.

i'm just wondering...

...why i think it should take 30 minutes to get everywhere in dallas. not the case. i am always late.

...when i'll stop thinking daddy should make me breakfast every saturday morning.

...if driving into unshielded sunlight can make you sick. is that a thing? i think i suffer from this.

...when i'll stop missing new york.

...why i sometimes need to prioritize the rest of my day at 6pm. so not cool.

...when i'll get better at making big kid decisions without input from my parents.

...when those lunges will stop making me sore in boot camp every week.

...why i think the speed limit on every road in our town is 45mph. it's definitely much lower. meep.

...why i always seem to want chick-fil-a the most on sundays, when they are closed.

...when i'll start packing up my life again because i'm moving this weekend. procrastination queen.

Overheard in New York City

This conversation with New Yorker Andrea (aka the future Mrs. Langus!! YAY!) made me giggle lots.

She didn't ask if they both knew the same Lauren in Texas. She also didn't take a photo. Because well, that would have been just sliiiightly inappropriate at dinner. No? 

However, it was decided that we'll assume a few people I know in NY were having dinner next to each other. And they didn't know that they had a mutual friend in Tejas. Because that's just the kind of small town New York City is, you know? 

Oh Manhattan. The biggest small city I know.
