it's that time again

The upside, and downfall to a month to month deal on an apartment is the flexibility of coming and going whenever you want or need to make a change. Inevitably there will be turnover. I'm on the 3rd hunt for a roommate and I've only lived in this place for 1 yr, 3 mos. 

1. [August 2009] Moved in - Roommates: Kelly (never there, always at boyfriend/now fiance's place) and Johanna, had recently started dating her bf.
2. [February 2010] Kelly moved in w/ her boyfriend/now fiance. We searched and lucked out with a girl who worked with Johanna. Enter Norah.
3. [July 2010] Norah got married! Yay for her, but a PAINFUL roommate search for us. (you will not believe the sorts of people we met.)  Enter Connie.
4. [Present day] Johanna is moving in with her boyfriend! Yay for her! Sad for me. Roommate search begins. We already have 3 responses, and one meeting set for Monday.

Wish me luck.

Veterans' Day - I did a bit of preliminary Christmas shopping. . And happened to stop in Old Navy. I have been on the look out for more skirts, and so I tried this on . I didn't have high hopes for it, cause I wasn't sure I liked it. Turns out - I LOVE IT. It is comfy, has pockets (You can barely tell!) and is work appropriate. Paired with a cowel neck black sweater and boots, it is today's outfit!

Let the Sunshine In

It's no secret, I love the musical HAIR. I may have been a hippie in my past life. After seeing it twice in NY, when it announced the US tour, I got tickets to see it in New Haven with my mom. Some of the cast from the NY show are on tour! Sadly, my fave - Gavin Creel, was not in it, but Paris Remmillard, who played one of the leads, did a great job. The first viewing I had was the best, by far. The people playing Claude, Berger and Sheila had great chemistry and were great to watch. The Sheila in the New Haven tour was less convincing, but still good.

Lake George

Back in October, which now feels like forever ago, Lori, Beth, Jen, Erik, Meredith and I went to Lake George for George and Kate's wedding. I have not been to Lake George in the longest time - probably since I was about 10 yrs old. It was so strange to see familiar sights, but not as a kid.

Downtown Lake George:

The wedding Venue - Inn at Erlowest

Gorgeous house we rented, within walking distance of the venue! The owners' last name was Meader - too funny. They were very nice.

LOVE this video.

I think this is Katy Perry's best song. Also - I teared up watching it the first time. 

really, why do I love this dude so much?

Last night, I was listening to a random iTunes mix, and a song by Gavin Creel (not HAIR soundtrack) came on. I guess it stuck in my head bc I had a dream last night that I was in NYC. There were a lot of people around - and we were bending over as if someone had dropped something and we were helping them pick it all up. I looked and whispered, "Oh my god, you're Gavin Creel." He said, "I know, isn't it cool?" Then he kissed my forehead and ran away. 
Ah my gay broadway boyfriend.. a nice way to start what turned into a CRAZY morning.
