The weekend I boozed because I moved.

Oh hey there, my loves! It's Monday, if you were unaware, and I feel like I got beat up this weekend.
Much to the disappointment of you haterade drinkers out there, I did not get beat up. I spent my weekend moving, drinking, moving, drinking, unpacking and drinking a little more. 
You see, the booze cushions the pain of the moving. Until it wears off, of course, and that's where I'm at today. 

So, enough about my moving induced binge drinking - allow me to show you my weekend in photos, because Monday's are the one day in blog world you don't have to come up with a real topic to talk about.

So, if you live under a rock, or don't follow me on the or Instagrammy machines, you may not be aware that I officially signed the next 12 months of my life away and got the keys to the Princess Palace on Friday morning.
I did my hair and makeup just so I could take this charmingly cliched photo for this post. You're welcome.

Here's what she looks like from the back door. She's very naked right now - excuse her while she waits for her new sofa and ottoman to be delivered in 6-8 weeks. (See also: F to the ML)

Here is reason numero uno that I needed this Princess Palace. Now, someone come visit so I have a reason to cook in this bad boy.

Reason numero two... I can do laps in the tub and fully intend on it.
Hey Lush, let me know if you need me to review any bath bombs for you.

And so that was day one. My furniture didn't get moved until Saturday - so the rest of this day was for drinking and going to see Wanda Sykes with my lover, Kate.

We had way too much fun despite Wanda using the first hour of her set as an Obama rally. I enjoyed her set on boobs much better. 
And also roaming City Walk with Kate and vodka.

Saturday the movers came at 8:30am which was just everything I wanted after a night of drinking mass amounts of vodka. This day was exhausting to the 500th power and I am happy to announce that I didn't even have one meltdown. Impressive, I know.

My Saturday night went a little like this...
Chardonnay, leopard robe, 27 Dresses, asleep by 10.

I got a full 11 hours of sleep and it was pretty much the greatest thing of my life.
And then I used all of that energy to drink around the world with my birthday girl, Amanda.
Oh hey, toasted girl.

And with that, I'm out.

  19. October 29, 2012 at 11:00 AM

    Woohoo! Congrats, I love the Princess Palace! When can I visit?! I could probably save a lot on airfare right now by just standing outside and blowing away.

  20. October 29, 2012 at 11:06 AM

    The princess palace is fantastic... I can completely relate I'm moving this week too! Ah... I'm tired just thinking about it!

  21. October 29, 2012 at 11:07 AM

    You're the cutest.

    Also, my one bummer about unexpectedly getting pregnant at 24? Never living in a princess palace. I think every girl should have one really fab place all her own for a moment.

  22. October 29, 2012 at 11:08 AM

    Ohhh LOVIN the Princess palace! I have a huge tub like that in mt apartment and i LOVEEEEE it!!!
    Seriously Wanda Sykes... So freaking funnnnnny!!!

    Congrats on the move! It looks amazing!

  52. October 30, 2012 at 8:45 AM

    Your moving weekend had more fun in it then most of my regular weekends. Moving time for me typically involves hair up, sweat dripping down my face, my back aching and it NEVER involves wine. I need to take tips from you for my next move.

    I'm seriously in love with the Princess Palace. The wood floors just top it off perfectly. Beautiful! I can see myself drinking a glass of wine on the island. Heaven.

  53. October 30, 2012 at 10:58 AM

    I am packing my bags now!
    I am invading the Princess Palace! :)

  54. October 30, 2012 at 12:05 PM

    I really only have one thing to say to you.. STOP BEING SO SKINNY. Not really, but seriously? I can't wait to frolic (or stomp depending on my alcohol levels) around the Princess Palace! It's so pretty and I love it! So excited for you girlfran :)

  55. October 30, 2012 at 5:11 PM

    Your Princess Palace is gorgeous! Seriously, it's better than my house.

  56. October 30, 2012 at 5:38 PM

    Your place looks awesome! Moving sucks so it's totally acceptable to booze it up ;)

  57. October 31, 2012 at 5:23 AM
