So I’m almost positive that I’ve found “the” place. Although I wanted to rent a house, the place I found is a townhouse. So it’s not exactly a house, but the space is ideal. There are two bedrooms, one bathroom, one living space, kitchen, dining room and multiple closets throughout. I’m used to living in a pretty big house, so adjusting to a smaller place is going to be a bit difficult. I’ve already started looking for ways to save space (see above photo I found on pinterest). I think I’ve got some good ideas up my sleeve. Wish me luck! And if I’m MIA for a bit, it’s because I got the place and I’m in the process of moving.

I went to look at a house to rent this weekend, and right inside the door was a cute little nook with a seat and coat hooks. I absolutely fell in love. I love the cuteness and usability of it. I love when little things like that can be so useful. I imagine (if we get the place) that I would use the nook to hold coats, hoodies and umbrellas, etc. Here are some that I hope to have in my dream home some day! (All photos were found on pinterest.)

Yesterday, my boyfriend and I headed to Pittsburgh to see Chris D’Elia perform a comedy show at Pittsburgh Improv. We walked around the city, had some beers and dinner at Fat Head’s while watching a golf tournament. Then we did some shopping, picked up some magazines for me, looked at golf gear for him, and then we headed to the show.
It was awesome! We both listen to Chris’ podcast, so we were pumped to meet him after the show. We got a quick pic with him and then we headed back to Ohio. It was a perfect way to celebrate our six months (technically it was July 21, but hey, we’re busy people). We’d go see him again in a heartbeat. Hilarious!

Every now and then, I get in really weird moods. Tonight was one of those nights. As I drove home from work, I saw a car off the side of the road, literally off the road and at an angle on a hill. It looked as though it may have been hit, but I don’t know the whole situation. What I do know is that there was a state highway patrol checking things out. He was walking away from the car.
Anyways, to my point, it got me thinking. Officers, such as that one, don’t know exactly what they’re getting into when they come upon a scene like that. Their lives must be stressful and full of fear and mystery. Along with that, they must feel as though their job is rewarding when they help people. It must be a sense if accomplishment.
Some days, I fear that I’m not doing enough to help society and other people. It’s hard to have feelings like this especially since I love my job. Maybe I need to volunteer and donate more. Just some thoughts! I had much more on my mind, but I could ramble on for days. Maybe I’ll explain in another post.

As a 23-year-old still living at home, I can tell you that more than anything I want to move out. I love my family dearly, but I’m ready for a place I can make a home. I want to be able to express myself through my decor, and I desperately want to have my own space and quiet time. This brings me to my main point: I’m on the search for a place. I hope to find a house to rent by November. Wish me luck!

As I stood in line at the grocery store earlier today and the elderly couple in front of me referred to me as a lady (as opposed to a girl), it hit: I’m an adult. No longer can I get away with things because “I’m young.” I feel like life is passing me by. When did I become an adult? Soon I hope to move out and be even more independent. That will be the day that I really feel like a grown up. It’s crazy how moments like that just hit you, and you realize you’ve experienced a lot and you’re not just a kid anymore.

I absolutely love candles. Although I don’t get to burn candles as much as I’d like, I still love when I do get to burn them. I love a lot of scents, but these two are my favorite. Other Chicago Candle Co. makes this Kentucky Bourbon candle that smells amazing, and as usual, Bath and Body Works tops the list with its Leaves scented candle. Both are amazing!
