I took the Megabus home this weekend. Yep, that's how much I love my family: so much that I'll splurge $2 for a round trip to Des Moines to see their bright and shining faces. It was a trip long over-due; I hadn’t been home since September 1st, and even then I was home for less than 12 hours. Before then, I hadn’t been home since June. And man…was I missin’ it!
So Saturday was a fun-filled day. I woke up early and cleaned up after my sister (she had left our room a disaster!—love you sis!). Then, I went to get my haircut from my favorite lady, Giovanna, at her salon Atelier Hairspace on 4th and Court in downtown Des Moines. Her cuts are $53 and for that price, I get what would cost $300 in New York—a stylish, perfect trim from a woman who used to style for Bumble and Bumble during NY Fashion Week.
Then, it was off to get my eyes checked (and I bought a sweet pair of hipster glasses—I’ll upload pics once they arrive) and then my papa and I went to the Sprint store and I finally got a smartphone. Woohoo!! That’s right Crepsters, I got a smartphone and am now officially living in the 21st century. We also had a yummy lunch at a dive and authentic taco joint. I also introduced Jim to horchata.
But it was Saturday night that really made me happy. I went to dinner with my 18 yo sister Audrey and three of her close friends. I’ve known some of these girls since they were in 1st grade and to observe them as young, classy, funny young women was absolutely mesmerizing and charming. I am so proud of them (and of course my sister!) for becoming such lovely young women. You guys R Da Best!
And in case I didn’t say it enough, happy birthday to my bestest friend in da world, my Audy.
Crappy quality, but you get the idea!
