Philly March 23, 2011

Clarke's good friend (Chris) came up from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Clarke bought us all tickets to the J Mascis show in Philly. J Mascis is the lead dude in Dinosaur Jr my friends.

Before the show we drove around Philly because Chris had never been there. We also stopped at the FDR Skatepark! It was really fun to go there. I had been there before but never really walked around in it. It was a really rainy day so no one was skateboarding, so that helped. Clarke and Chris are big skateboard dudes so it was cool to go with people that actually skate.

We also went to the awesome restaurant El Vez! Great guacamole and awesome tacos for two!

Little story about afterward. So J came out to say hi and sign autographs. So I got all nervous and I was like F it.. I'll just go get my ticket signed. I didn't have a pen. Some guy was walking away with a pen and I asked him if I could borrow it real quick. He let me. Then I go up to J with the pen and try to hand it to him. Some dude tries to take it away from me so he can get his autograph first. And I'm like hey I'm using it. And then some other random dude goes... that isn't even your pen, stop being greedy! And I'm like well i just went and borrowed it shouldn't i be able to use it first. and he goes "true". So I get my autograph and then I say to the guy "don't call me greedy". and he says something dumb like "uh well you are". So anyway I was pretty bummed because it took away from getting the autograph from J. So I went over to Clarke to tell him what happened and I pointed at the guy who said it... so Clarke starts walking over to the guy like he was going to say something.. and you could see the guy got nervous. Anyway it was really funny and romantic that clarke was going over to defend my honor. haha. What a guy!

New Apartment

Finally finally moved into a new apartment. It took forever to get here. But I finally did it! I'm located in Reston, Virginia. Those of you who may recall... I had sold like ALL of my belongings because I was suppose to move to London for the third time BUT I didn't go, did I? So I needed to get all new pretty things for my new place!

Here is a sneak peak of some of my things so far.

Here are my vintage corelle plates that I bought from vintage etsy seller iWunderVintage!

The fun story about the plates is...I was showing my friend Lillian about my new plates so I sent her a picture of them and she was like dude I have the same plates and sent me a picture of hers! I feel dumb because I have eaten off her plates before so I had seen them before! And then my friend Carol saw the plates on my facebook and she is like dude my mom has these plates. So that was pretty exciting!

Here are the matching cups and saucers I bought from etsy seller Gals Gone Vintage! I bought a set of 6 for $15 dollars!

Here are 2 place mats that I bought. I have been getting mixed reviews on these from people. I really like them. I like that they look homely and handmade and look a bit ridiculous! I bought these from etsy seller Cereal Vintage Thrift! I bought these for $3 Bucks!

Some cute cutlery I got. Its called interpur jardinera and I bought it from vakar! This shop is really nice because she has kept an eye out for me for additional pieces of this stuff and I have already bought a few more for my collection!

Kitchen Utensils. I love love these! I bought these from One 4 the Sun!

Now I have had these cute cork boards for a few years but I found a place for them in the kitchen and I put up some pictures of Clarke and I on them. Take a look! These were made by the awesome Lillian of The Cupcake Girls! As you know, I am a cupcake girl too but I have taken a break for a whle and Lillian has been doing an awesome job keeping the shop open!
