Does anyone else feel like May is already flying by? This year needs to just slow down a bit. I’m tryna enjoy the summer, here!
So if you didn’t notice, I was MIA for the better part of the month, just like last month. I have to update you on what I’ve been doing, eating, etc., so this is my attempt at that!
First up, I graduated! What’s uppppp.
Yeah, so that was pretty cool! It seems a bit crazy to me that after four years of work and fun it’s all over in a few hours. We had to move out of my apartment that same day, so the whole weekend was gone in a flash. Currently, I’m living back in Pittsburgh and on the job hunt.
Second, I’ve been eating a whole lot of good stuff. Maybe a bit too much good stuff
Kedron, who my dad fondly calls Kendrick, came to visit me the last few days of the school year to help me get through graduation. It was so sweet of her, so of course we had to take a trip to her fave Athens restaurant, which I’ve talked about only a million times, Casa. Ignore the finger in the corner of the frame.
The night before graduation, my parents and Adam headed into town to help move me out, and we ended the long day of packing and snapping at each other with a relaxing dinner at my favorite, Purple Chopstix. I had the Veggie Pesto Pasta. It was as fabulous as I’d hoped.
That same day was also Adam’s 18th birthday! He’s officially an “adult!” I bought him this cake at Kroger (which, can I add, I miss Kroger dearly. PLEASE, Kroger execs, if you are listening, come to Pennsylvania again. My life isn’t the same without you). Anyway, the cake was delicious – icing was phenom.
Last week, I met up with my bestie, Emily, and we headed out to our favorite sushi restaurant. We got the spicy tuna avocado roll and the first date roll. I liked the first date roll, but I didn’t love that there was fried shrimp in the middle.
And last night, I met up with Cassie – yes I was with her all weekend, but I love her a lot so I try to see her as much as poss – for these salads we were craving at Shady Grove (we both ate there with Erin once separately!). The salads hit the spot.
So that’s that! It’s summa summa summa time, and I’m ready to spend it out in the sunshine. Oh! wait one more thing. I finally made an appointment to find out what is up with my knee. It’s still a month away, but I’ll keep you in the loop.
Questions of the Day:
>> Do you have restaurants that you keep going back to again and again? All of the ones above I’ve been to at least once before.
>> Tell me something that’s new with you! I feel disconnected!
