today is Otto’s second birthday!
location scouting here, packing for this weekend, and one very sad kitty named ned.
belated birthday post! I celebrated my 22nd birthday earlier this month with some friends and cupcakes.
today is my 21st birthday!
my mom, my sister ingred and her son trevor visited us for a weekend of fun here in san francisco. we went to the wharf, the ferry building, we planned on going to the golden gate bridge, but that idea fell through. i can’t wait to spend time with them again! we also did one quick run to ikea, plenty of cuddle time with my youngest nephew, enjoyed great homemade food, ingred brought sofia coppola champagne “just because” :) and many episodes of dexter!
this past week has been full of unpacking, organizing, cleaning, and recuperating - all this moving and travel has lowered my immune system and i came down with a cold over the weekend, which sadly meant no celebrating on the 4th :( so instead i’ve been curled up on the couch sipping soup with otto and watching some of my favorite films. it hasn’t really felt like summer here in san francisco anyway – the weather has been pretty chilly lately. one thing i really love about my new place is that we have a little backyard! i can’t wait to start buying plants and herbs to turn it into a pleasant little garden!
these past two weeks have been really hectic! my brother and i have driven from palm springs to san francisco – once to check out apartments which was successful! and secondly to move all of things, our mom gave us a bunch of furniture she didn’t want anymore – yay! i really like my new place and the cats are settling in great, right now it’s quite a mess from unpacking and there’s still heaps to do – but i promise i’ll post more photos soon!
he likes having his photo taken
meet otto – i adopted him from the local animal shelter today unpacking and settling in last week. it’s strange to visit my home where i grew up but not having my old room here anymore some new cosmetics :) my family is danish so when i found this for 5 bucks i had to get it! scored these bell jars at a store closing sale for 80% off!
today is my 2oth birthday! tonight we are having a little party with family and friends, and then tomorrow a group of friends and i are going camping in joshua tree! all photos via weheartit
although i love palm springs, i do wish i were somewhere like this for thanksgiving, but it’s wonderful to be visiting my family since i haven’t seen then since summer. have a great holiday everyone! photo via flickr
my classes this week have drained me. i’ve been getting horrible sleep all week and this weekend i have no time to relax because this weekend is completely full of studying and projects because next week is midterms. today was a a lot better though because my friend michelle and i went to see where the wild things are in imax! it was one of the most beautiful and touching films i’ve ever seen! if you have not seen it yet, call up some friends and go!
i love ikea. my friends and i spent at least two hours just roaming looking at everything and re enacting the 500 days of summer ikea scene, haha. i came home with an awesome chair, a huge desk, a gigantic bookcase and some odds and ends for the kitchen! i still need a mirror and a nightstand…and a sofa for the living room…but all in good time. my brother helped me put everything together and it went pretty smoothly, i was sorta freaked out by the bookcase at first but it only took thirty minutes to put together! i made him blondies in cupcake pan things for helping me, hehe see below : )
today is my good friend sarah’s 19th birthday!
