some day I hope to have a little cottage in the country [i’ll have to keep my apartment in the city of course] where we can go apple picking in the fall and swimming in the summer.



new shoes and weekend news

October 19, 2009

this whole no-job-thing really discourages me from going shopping, however since I moved from Texas to DC I’m really unprepared for winter. This weekend it was cold (about 40 or so degrees) and rainy–and it’s only October!

I was pretty much freezing.

So I got these new saddle shoes from UO!

my new little saddle shoes

I love them and can’t wait for sweater shopping later this week. I adore fall/winter clothes so I’m excited to actually be able to see the seasons & bundle up!


We had a pretty laid back weekend full of:

-group projects

-the usual Sunday bagels

-a spontaneous mini photo shoot


-movie watching


today I can’t get enough:

…of martha’s carved pumpkins

<not usually a huge halloween person, but wow these pumpkins are awesome!>

we haven’t got our pumpkin yet, but I hopefully next weekend we’ll make it to the pumpkin patch

Friday Oct 2.

Medeski, Martin & Wood 2:30-3:30

Andrew Bird 7:30-8:30

Yeah Yeah Yeah’s 8:30-9:45

Saturday Oct. 3

Citizen Cope 4:00-5:00

Bon Iver 5:00-6:00

Oh I wish I was in Austin for this!

The trip to NYC was a good one. It took us about 7 hours to get there though (it’s supposed to take about 4… Labor day weekend traffic = madness). The drive down last night was luckily much faster. Photos coming soon!

The weekend consisted of:

Drinks with bf’s parents


A little daytime outing to Lambertville for antiquing

A walk across the bridge to PA

Sunday brunch with miss Jenny

Monday homework catchup
