This one feels just right...

so, now that i've begun the "rest of my life"...more commonly known as adulthood I was faced with a need to furnish my apartment. So last weekend my mom and I went to the local furniture store and boy did I furnish!

I got this amazing navy blue italian leather sofa for a great deal because it's a floor sample! It feels like buttah...

Then I got an amazing coffee table to go with the sofa, it even has two nesting tables underneath that can serve as foot rests, end tables, or whatever I need them to be.

And this one is my counter height dining set. The table in this picture is only 3' wide, but there is a leaf hidden underneath it that expands it to 4' wide for big meals with lots of people! Note the bookshelf in the background, my brother bought me a cordless drill as a "housewarming/graduation" present and I put that baby together in an hour.

Here's to growing up, spending money, buttery leather couches, and room to host friends for amazing meals!

Much love and Blessings to you today!

wither shall I wander?

Hello dear friends!

I am happy to report that I have successfully moved, walked across a stage without tripping, and received my Master of Communication Sciences and Disorders degree!!

Don't worry, I won't ask you to call me Master Bridgeman, but I think I'm finally excited about being done with school.

Yesterday my family kept asking me if I was excited to be graduating, and honestly I didn't feel any different about it...however now, with all of my family headed back to their respective cities, and I'm here in my apartment as an adult I'm starting to feel grown up and I kind of like it.

I still have boxes everywhere, but that's mainly because I have no furniture or storage utilities to put the items in...i.e. bookshelves, a dresser, etc. My goal is to be "furnished" by the end of Sept/early Oct...I'll keep you posted on how that goes.

I will hopefully get pictures from my mom/friends from this weekend and I'll post them, but currently I have nothing to show you to prove that I gradumated, except the huge smile on my face!

Hears to growing up, family visits, not tripping, and wandering into adulthood!

Blessings to you!

I don't wanna grow up...

I'm a toys-R-us kid! Not really...but it goes with the mood. This morning I'm getting ready to head to my last day of my internship, which technically is also my last day of grad school. Coincidentally, it's pretty much my last day of sanity before a crazy week begins.

Sunday: Drive to waco
Monday: Sign check-out paperwork for graduation
Tuesday: leave waco super early, drive to Houston, sign my lease, fly to Corpus, pick up rental truck
Wednesday: drive packed rental truck to Houston and unload my junk
Thursday: Mom and Gram get to H-town
Friday: drive back to Waco for Graduation
Saturday: GRADUATE!!! and drive back to Houston

Yesterday it dawned on me that I only had 3 more days in I'm resisting thinking about it (aside from this post of course). Please be praying for my mind these next few days...I'm having a hard time processing it all and the reality of being an adult is starting to set in. Where did the time go?

Despite all the busyness I truly am excited to see all the grad-school homies on Monday...I've missed them so much! I hope everyone drives safe this weekend!

Here's to growing older but never growing up, good friends, and living an incredibly blessed life!

Blessings to you on this Friday!
