Mobile Uploads: Chapter 4

Since I was without a phone for most of the summer these mobile uploads post have been nonexistent. However now I am fully equipped again and ready to roll...

 Here is our apartment the day we moved in. Hasn't really changed in the three months we've been here.

Spencer refused to stand with a piece of paper like we did HERE but whatevs, I snapped this picture after I dropped him off as I awkwardly reached out the passenger window. Happy first day of law school!

This area of the world is interesting. People are so ...... I really can't find the best word to use. It's not a negative thing it's just a different thing than I'm use to. For example I have no problem eating off styrofoam, but since living here I am now understanding a life of recycling and going green. So not only do all the foods at public events come in Vegan, Gluten-free, vegetarian, and Kosher but the supplies on which they serve the food is always 100% compostable. This was at some law school shindig.

I started babysitting when I was ten. Sometimes for $5/hour or sometimes even less than that. I would save my money and seriously contemplate on which Beanie Baby I was going to buy. After I made the purchase and took it home in the brown paper bag (don't really remember why the beanie babies were always in brown lunch sacks) I would put a little plastic cover on the TY tag and put it on a shelf. To me they were collectors items and over the years as I've seen the prices on eBay drop, and drop and drop I've decided that those beanie babies were a waste of my hard earned cash. I now let Drew play with them and smear chocolate and yogurt all over their fuzzy faces. I saw this display at the mall and was floored. Some of the beanie babies in the bin were some of the rarest to be found. I only looked for a minute, but of course refused to buy animal shaped bean bags.

Saw this on a door at our hotel in Boston. Weird. 

Drew's chubby self tried to get into this toy cart at our neighbors house. hahahahah enough said.

This to me is the epitome of Ithaca. A Subaru with plenty of bumper stickers.

I don't really know what to say about this one.

As Drew and I were leaving the gym he felt like he had to smear his face on every piece of available glass. This was shortly after I saw a guy with a windex bottle and a towel. oops.

 This is by far Drew's favorite thing to see at the grocery store. Something about being near an ocean that makes for some sweet lobsters in the grocery store.

I was the same way with beanie babies! Oh how I loved those. And yes I saw some of the originals in there and about died, but Elliot pulled me away before I could really reminisce.

John and Emily said...

HAHAHa for some reason that toilet seat kills me! When my mom was obsessed with beenie babies, we would buy them, tag em and bag em!haha love you. You look FAB btw!!!!

KandyJill said...

Haha I love everything about this post. But WHAT THE CRAP BEANIE BABIES!?!?!?!? I totally had about a hundred or more of them... and bought the plastic covers for the tags and the BOXES for the bears. Are those bears I see in that box for $3.99? Bears were like 20 bucks when we were kids! That's the new grandkid toy at my house. It slightly breaks my heart when I go home and see the kids pulling the tags off of them... it makes me cringe because I know how hard I tried to preserve those tags and keep them in mint condition! Haha. How pathetic!

I'm sort of concerned about your beanie baby problem. I am reconsidering our friendship. I am obviously too cool for most things.

i fell victim to the same beanie baby scam. I would beg my mom daily to buy them and of course the extra 50 cents for the plastic tag cover. now i have cut all the stupid tags off and kate play with them. dang beanie babies.

i miss you and drew is getting so big. we need to come visit.
