Boxes, packing, buying furniture, etc

Yup, I’m moving again. This time to my own apartment in downtown Louisville!

While I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time living with Jeanette and the kids, it is now time for PJ and I to spread our wings and live on our own. Scary yet exciting. Story of my life, right?

A check list of a million “to-do’s” has been scrolling through my head since I signed my lease yesterday, May 19th. I’ll be getting my keys Friday, May 21st, and moving my stuff in (wait...I have stuff?) throughout the week/weekend officially out of Jeanette’s by May 30th.

On the upside, we were approved for the Community Coordinated Childcare Program (aka 4 C’s) which means that I have help paying for PJ’s daycare! He’ll be starting June 2nd in a state certified day care, the first non home day care he’s ever attended. I’m sure he’ll love the environment and do great as always! So… new home, new daycare, lots of stuff going on!

While we’re talking about PJ, I am proud to announce that PJ is now 100% potty trained! Well, actually more like 98%. He still has some trouble during the night, but we’re workin on it. I cannot believe my baby will be turning 3 years old on August 18th. How time flies….

To wrap up, things here in Louisville were pretty wild for a while. Lots of changes, lots of chaos, but a lot of good things are to come.

Update to friends and family; complete. Miss you all!


All I Expected and MORE!

My very first legal alcoholic beverage! Cheers!

There is a lot of hype turning 21. Wondering how smashed you're going to get, what bars are like on a busy Saturday night, interested at how much of your day you'll actually remember.

Well, my birthday was amazing! It was all I expected and more!

Saturday Dave, Ashley and myself started off the day at my favorite breakfast resteraunt, Toast, sipping momosas (YUM) and filling our tummies so that I had something to be able to puke up later  for the long day ahead of us.

When we were done we headed over to Church Hill Downs to see my very first Kentucky Derby. Now that was crazy. THOUSANDS of drunk people everywhere. Lots of people wearing silly hats. Lots of mudd (ever seen two girls mudd wrestle? I have!). Excitement over the race. Just a massive party that lasted all day.

After hours of being at the Derby, we went back to Daves to shower (by the time we left the Derby we were COVERED in mudd!) and get ready to hit the bars. Starting off at a place on Bardstown road called Dito's really set the tone for the evening. A delicious dinner, great drinks, and wonderful, fun conversation with friends!

After Dito's we went to Howl at the Moon (dueling piano bar). That place was amazing....great music, great service, just an all around blast! We ended up staying there all night. Err...early morning to be more exact :-)

So, I survived! I survived my 21st Birthday! And I actually remember most of it.

Now I'm looking forward to my extended 21st birthday celebration trip to Chicago May 21st-23rd. I have a feeling I'm not going to do so hot there....but I'm mentally and physically preparing myself for it now!

Thanks again for the bday wishes everyone!! <3
