LIFE AS OF LATE | NEWNESS

Happy Monday sweet friends! This weekend was a rather exciting one for N + I! Last Monday N closed on  the new house & this Saturday I drove up to DC to help with the moving process. This is a picture of the new house -- it is hard to tell the color of it but it is actually called 'lemon chiffon' yellow. We weren't sure how crazy we were going to be about the color, but I am fan! 

Over the last few weeks N + I have been searching the web & emailing each other links & texting each other pictures of all the the things we would love to get for the house. One of the hardest things was picking out dishware, flatware, & glassware. I immediately fell in love with these Tour Flutes from C&B & HAD to have them. Luckily N loved them too! & the dishware was an easy find since N's style is modern/contemporary. The flatware has been, well lets just say, unsuccessful! It is so hard to pick out that over the internet, you really need to see it in person & be able to hold it in your hands.

My trip to DC was a short one. I only stayed Saturday night & drove back Sunday. But the best part was being able to spend the first night in the house together with N. Many of you know that N +  I have been long distance for the last 25 months & to be able to officially say that I will no longer be in a long distance relationship is THE absolute best feeling. I have exactly three weeks until I start my next rotation up in DC & I couldn't be more excited! I can not wait to start living a life of normalcy, if there is even such a thing! ;)

After heading back to Yorktown VA, I spent the early afternoon browsing around some of my favorite stores -- TJ Maxx, World Market, & Marshalls. World Market had some of the c u t e s t bathroom accessories & they even had these adorable mini Bellini bottles that I feel quickly in love with. I think I need to get myself a case of them & have them for guests that stay over :] good idea?

How was your weekend? Would love to hear about it!
