This summer I finally jumped on the maxi-dress-bandwagon even though they've been pretty popular for awhile now - clearly you can tell I'm totally up on all the latest fashion trends. not. But why did I not join in on this one sooner? I love the maxis that I finally bought and have worn them multiple times - there was only one time that I actually wore this one two days in a row. #sorrynotsorry
I actually wore this last weekend when Parker and I were apartment-shopping. I was going for a young, cute, but also professional-looking ensemble because I knew we might have to
ask beg for our lease to be less than 12 months. This is what happens when you forget to tell your husband about the young, cute, but also professional-looking vibe you would like the 2 of you to be giving off:
He told me he was giving off an ass-kicking vibe. He also told me that this whole taking-pictures-of-yourself thing is very narcissistic. I told him it's for the blog. #duh
I'm not sure if it was his vibe that worked or mine, but we did find an apartment! A 12-month lease seems to be required by most apartments in the area so that's the biggest thing I was worried about. We were hoping that when we move back in November we can be in an apartment for 6 months (ish) while we can be house-hunting so we really didn't want to get stuck in a 12-month lease. The landlord that we used to rent from before moving was willing to let us sign a 6-month lease. What a nice guy, huh? Once the 6 months are up it will be month-to-month so it will be very flexible - I don't think I could have asked for much better.
Plus, it's a two-bedroom apartment. Which means it also has 2 bathrooms and 2 closets! I think the 2 closets might possibly excite me even more than the 2 bedrooms - coming from a girl whose been sharing a small little closet with her husband for 2 years. Closet space is like primo real estate in my eyes. Anywho, I'm getting side-tracked. We found an apartment, I couldn't be more excited, and it's so nice to finally be able to picture a space when I day-dream about moving home!
Now let the packing begin. #ugh
