Did you think I died? I wouldn't be surprised if you did. I don't think I've ever gone this long without a blog entry! Yikes. Sorry folks. Anyway, here are some random tidbits to keep you updated on my life. :)
  • I officially got rid of cable a couple weeks ago. Those of you who know me know this is a B.I.G. deal. I now have no TV, unless I hook my computer up to my TV and watch it that way. I've done that a few times, but it's kind of a pain in the butt. Plus, some of the shows I like are tough to find online. I did just re-watch Season 1 of Suits in preparation for the new season to start this week, so that was fun. The show came out last year, and if you haven't heard of it or watched it, I highly recommend it!
  • I broke down and bought a vacuum. Mine has been broken for a LONG time, and my apartment was finally to the point that I couldn't wait any longer. As of tonight, all my floors are clean! :) 
  • I gave up pop for the time being. I'm not like a crazzzzzy pop drinker by any stretch of the imagination, especially compared to a lot of people I know. However, I realized I was buying it a lot lately, both at the grocery store to stock my fridge and in the vending machines at work. I love to drink one now and then, it definitely quenches the thirst from time to time. Problem is, I started to feel like it was taking a toll on me a little bit (mostly physically, but a tiny bit financially as well). After randomly speaking with L about it, who recently stopped drinking it a couple weeks ago, I realized it was something I could and should do. Well folks, here I am. 12 days in, and no pop. Doesn't sound like much, but it's kind of fun to keep track. (Wow, do I sound like an addict or what?;)
  • On May 28, I was in my "new" job for 6 months! Seriously?! Think about it. I've been at UW-Milwaukee over half as long I was at MIAD. Total mind blow.
  • I've gotten to spend a pretty solid amount of time with people I enjoy lately! Not sure how we've managed to swing it, but I've seen L soooooo much more than you would expect for living 3+ hours apart from each other. He's been down here a lot, and I've made a couple treks up to La Crosse as well. I must say, having him here certainly helps lessen the impact on my bank account in terms of travel money. Can't complain! Speaking of having him here, he's coming to visit tomorrow evening through Friday morning, and then again next week Wednesday night through Sunday. I feel so lucky! :) I also got to see Erin and her boyfriend Ross a couple weeks ago for a Nickelback concert down here; I saw Jacob, Casey, and Homer (as well as my old roommate Lauren) in La Crosse not this past weekend but the weekend before; this past weekend I got to see a good chunk of the fam (mom, dad, Dave, Court, Tayt, and Peyton) for a Brewer game; and then this weekend, Erin and Subera are coming to visit. Seriously. I just got exhausted typing that... Now do you understand where I've been lately?! ;)
Since there's really no rhyme or reason to to this post, I thought I'd add a few random pictures from the past couple weeks while I'm at it. Thanks for reading and bearing with me through this post. I swear I'll try to most more often! :)

Lobster dinner that L and I made at my apartment a few weeks ago.
(Well, he made most of it, but I made the biscuits!:)

Me and Erin before the Nickelback concert!

Nickelback! :)
Venturing out into the (windy) Third Ward!
