today is the day for packing my life away and safe to say packing is my least favorite thing ever. trying to fit my clothes into a reasonable number of boxes and suitcases is just not right. there's no way i can fit my entire wardrobe into my itty, bitty closet at school and i'm forced to choose favorites when i love all my clothes equally!!! i know, i know; talk about first world problems-- but c'mon us fashion lovers gotta have options!
this week is definitely sad, i had to say see ya later to my wonderful fam for a few months. i've been totally spoiled living so close to my mama and sisters this summer and it's made me so so so happy. pittsburgh is about 6 hours away from md and i haven't minded as much the past few years. heck, last summer i didn't even move back home! i lived in pgh the entire summer. but with anthony and my family here, it makes it a lot harder to leave.
so monday night has always been family night at my mom's house and all my siblings get together once a week to eat and play games and watch bad tv. it's perfect. i've been able to be there most mondays this summer which has been awesome. and this week, we celebrated my stepsister madison's birthday! so we had cake and it was extra fun.
my mom and stepdad's house is gorgeous. these shots were taken in their backyard. they do all of their own landscaping and decorating and it's just so beautiful. the white fence, the flowers, the green grass, the wrap around porch; it makes me so excited to have a backyard again one day! ha. one of the downsides of living in the city.
the weather has totally chillaxed this week and has been a beautiful, sunny, breezy 80 degrees. aka perfection compared to the 99 degree rainstorms we've been having this summer. i will definitely not miss the humidity back in pittsburgh, but i'm totally not ready for cold temps yet. fall always flies by and before i know it, it'll be snowing! i'm definitely not ready for that!! but for now i'm just enjoying my last couple days in my apartment. i'm gonna miss this place and all my little nik naks i've accumulated this summer. lol. it's my home :)
thanks for checking in, lovelies. hope all is well.
