Playing House

Last week, I was asked by my best friend Danielle to house sit for about 6 days, so of course I said "Yes!" in a heartbeat! I feel like I pretty much grew up in that house & it always brings tons of memories when I come over. Danielle and I have friends since the 7th grade (almost 7 years!) when we were both the new kids at our middle school. The middle school/high school I went too were both very.. pretentious. It's the school in the area known for the rich kids and extravagant houses (not to mention drugs and booze.. but what high school these days isn't known for that?).. needless to say, I was at the opposite end of each spectrum & didn't quite know my place or where to fit in, but luckily I had a few great friends like Danielle. I have to say, though.. I couldn't be happier to be out of high school and I do not miss one second of it! Those were NOT the best days of my life, and I can say I will look back & miss college once I'm done.

But that's besides the point. Patrick was invited by Danielle's parents to also stay over, which was nice because I have a hard time falling asleep if I know I'm the only one in the house. I have this anxiety associated with people breaking in at night, and will often wake up in the middle of the night and HAVE to check that all of the doors are locked! Anyways, it was rainy for a few days, which was nice because the heat was getting UNBEARABLE. It is insanely humid in the summer in Virginia Beach, and it gets hard to even walk to your car sometimes.. never mind the fact that I have no A.C! We took the opportunity to try some indoor photography.. so enjoy the pictures of Danielle's beautiful house (her mom has amazing decorating skills) and other musings from the weekend.

  1. your sandals are fantastic! what a great casual summer outfit

    Patrick looks perfect for Seattle with that beard, beanie, and guitar

  2. Oh, her house looks quite amazing! I love all the sweet accents.

    Your dress is rockin' lady. I LOVE the detail on it

  3. These are lovely photos - that dress is so pretty on you. And I know what you mean about sleeping alone...I hate it too! My mind always drifts to horror movies and I'm just like "STOP THINKING ABOUT THAT"...but I can't.

    Thanks so much for your sweet comment! We really are in the same place...which makes so much sense because I always relate so much to what you say. I feel like we are kind of the same person, haha. But yes, I will definitely keep updating and trying to keep in touch. And of course I'll always tweet with you! Haha. Good luck with your new school. Hope you're enjoying it as much as I am!
