Today I took my last final EVER. My pen will never again grace the likes of a BlueBook. My mind will never again be filled up with last minute cram sessions and memorizations. I cannot believe it! There is really something strange about moving on to the next phase of life after graduating from college. My best friend and I were talking about how weird it will be to no longer be able to categorize ourselves as “students.” I think that this is something that will take a long time to get used to. But, it will be great nonetheless. I finished my last final at about 2 p.m. and immediately headed up to Blockbusters to pick up a sappy chick flick (P.S. I love you) and to Starbucks to grab some coffee. Yes, it is only 2:45 in the afternoon and I will soon be vegeing out on the couch watching a movie. I love it! But, before I start, I thought that I would share with you a random smattering of pictures showing you the Seitz’s life over the last weekend.
First, on Wednesday night my friend (pseudo sister) called and asked if Levi and I could babysit her adorable 13 month old daughter. OF COURSE! Anyone who knows me knows that I am a bit baby obsessed. She was an absolute delight and Levi and I gloated over her the entire night. She was especially fascinated with our fish (R.I.P. Juno, our fish who died yesterday :(….) and my guitar. She went to sleep at around 7:30 p.m. and she didn’t fuss at all. We couldn’t help ourselves and we had to peek in on her several times. You can thank me later:
Seriously, babies this cute should not exist! This little girl coupled with my indescribably cute 3-month-old niece make it REALLY difficult for people like me and my husband who are baby-obsessed to not immediately go pro-create! Ack!
The next happening of our week was all in Levi’s arena. He got picked up at 6:30 a.m. by some friends from work and they went to three (count them: 3) skate parks in Renton, Kent and Auburn. Crazy? Yes. He had a great time doing some “old man skating” as he called it, which is more the Dogtown style (google it) than the trick based stuff he used to do. He had a blast, and I was glad he was returning to his adorable skater self that I first fell in love with. Here’s a couple of pictures courtesy of Levi’s friend from work (credits: Dan Brunner).
And, by the way, how amazing is that huge hole in the back of his jeans? Those are his Sevens. I don’t want to talk about it.
On to me, I finished making my dress this weekend. I was hoping to be able to wear it to my graduation on Saturday, so we will see if I get up the self confidence needed to wear it. There just seems to be something not quite perfect about the way it fits me, and being a perfectionist, this could mean that I will never wear it. I hope that’s not the case though, because Levi likes it. Here’s the pattern I used:
I chose a black satin fabric, and it is fully lined with a blue silk lining.
I think it looks better on a hanger!
Here you can see the lining and the back, which has a simple zipper and hook and eye closure:
Okay, enough of that. I will leave you with a couple of pictures of our newly redecorated apartment.
I made those pillows for our couches with some fabric I found at IKEA. The random artwork in the background is just that: random. I was inspired by something I saw at Apartment Therapy.
How did Levi’s Mexican blanket get in there? I thought for sure I had thrown that out several times :). The wall hanging is also fabric from IKEA, it comes hemmed, which is very nice. That’s all for now!
