Twelve days…

Posted in Blog by modernlifeisandy on April 12, 2009

… until my wedding. It’s a pretty insane concept, and both myself and Moriah and strangely calm about the whole thing. Likely this is due to shock that we’ve survived over nine years together, but I can only speak for myself. We’ve been filling our time with trying to finish setting up the new apartment. Things are coming along nicely, and we spend the past two weekends transferring our stuff from my old room in Plymouth to the new digs in Davis Square. The kitchen finally looks like a kitchen, and I am itching to try the new coffee pot. I’ll posti pictures of the whole thing as soon as everything is settled in. That includes the new TV, which we will buy, damnit!

I went home for the weekend to do some more wedding finalizing and to have Easter brunch with the family. I didn’t really take photos while I was home because I was too busy stuffing my face with food, but I did snap a few when I got bored.

Twelve days, and four more days of teaching until vacation. Very, very excited. Here’s to hoping that this week flys by!

Courtney and Olivia spent some time playing with phones, exactly what I would expect them to be doing!

Friday night hangouts

So between all the stupid, motherfucking bastard asshole work I’ve had to do on my initial license binder for school, I popped in and out of the apartment proper to spend some time with Steph, Randall (who is being blogged by the second person in a short while, thanks Jeff) and Chris.

Moriah’s Birthday Extravaganza

Posted in Blog by modernlifeisandy on April 2, 2009

So before we finished painting on Sunday, Moriah’s mom and dad brought up a lasagne and cake for us to eat at the apartment. Lauren and Ryan stopped by, which was nice. We ate food and cake, and then headed back to our current apartments. On Monday I took Moriah to dinner at Fire & Ice in Harvard Square. It was an awesome Monday.

Moriah went camera happy on the ride home and I'm pretty sure she blinded a couple of pedestrians with the flash.

We got our desserts from Finale after we had dinner, and brought them home for later. LATER HAD ARRIVED.

We did a lot of shit for a Monday night. Fire & Ice is a great restaurant, and it turns out Monday is college night. If you have an I.D. they give you half off your meal, which amounts to chump change for the all you can eat style they bring at that place. Do it up.

Painting, Part Two

Posted in Blog by modernlifeisandy on April 2, 2009

Real quick painting update, to get the boring shit out of the way. Moriah and I finished up the second coat on Sunday and spent an hour working on the trim. We’re gonna finish this week so we can be done and ready to move in. Shit looks hot.

I went on the attack as soon as we started. It was early, and I was fucking cranky.

We finished the master first, since it was the biggest pain in the ass.

After weighing the pros and cons, we fought. She won (but I let her win, since it was the day before her birthday.)

We just need to finish up all the window sills and trim in the place, and then we’re ready for moving in. The wedding is coming soon so we have lots to get done first!
