This week on Totes Awesome Channel, we are vlogging about VEDA!
Totes makes sense because we’re all participating in VEDA, the captian of VEDA is the Monday girl in Totes Awesome Channel, and it’s the first week of August! I’m just amazed that last year we were at 60 something participants and this year we’re currently over 160! I will post my videos on Sundays on the blog but you can follow along through my Youtube channel.
Last weekend, I wanted a low key dinner at a pub with some friends for my birthday. A few minutes before the reservation for 12-16 people, they called to cancel our reservation. (I KNOW.) I called one of my favorite restaurants and explained to them that I had quite a bit of people already enroute to a restaurant and need to call everyone to change locations and if there is anyway they can be that location. Contigo sweetly accomodated us with no notice. Thanks, Contigo! Also, I think eating outdoors made for adorable dinner pictures so it ended up being a win all around.
My BDF (Best Dudie Friend) has a history of not remembering my birthday. I like to remind him of that one time he saw me ON my birthday and dropped off his dog for me to babysit for an entire week without a mention of a birthday wish. So now when he remembers, he wants a lot of credit. He requested that I share this voice mail on the blog.
I couldn’t share his voice mail without sharing my sister’s voice mail. This is the cutest group voice mail I’ve ever received and I’m sharing this with permission.
Things I’m going to miss about my apartment:
It’s still hectic over here. We move out of our apartment on the 11th. Hot water and stovetop usage won’t be in order til the 13th. My last day of my current full time position is on the 17th. My first day at the new position is on the 20th. I am planning Dishcrawl number two for August 28! Oh, there’s that thing where I make a vlog every day of the month. All of this has taken priority over things that I used to do regularly to keep me sane. Like reading and journaling. I haven’t read a book since Pittsburgh (end of June) and I haven’t journaled in over two weeks!
This week’s moments of bliss: ♥ live music date night with Alan ♥ finishing our jigsaw puzzle of the world ♥ discovering beer cheese over a girl’s dinner out ♥ phone conversations with Treavor while at the park ♥ VEDA year three! ♥ croissants ♥ cake balls ♥ chocolate truffles from Houston ♥ birthday lunch date with old coworkers ♥ birthday pho dinner with current coworkers ♥ Kim texting me a random food joke ♥ thinking my phone was broken for good and then it magically fixing itself
