Mini weekend update

Hey guys! I am skipping Most Wanted Mondays today due to a wicked head cold I picked up on Saturday. Since Saturday I have been slowly fighting off the cold and unfortunately do not have much energy or desire to do too much. This weekend was still fun. Many of my friends and boyfriend graduated - congrats guys! Also many of us moved out of our places for good. It is strange leaving a place I had lived for four and a half years, however, I am excited for a new adventures.

Friday I packed up the rest of my apartment and helped my boyfriend move out of his. Later that night a bunch of our friends enjoyed a bonfire. Saturday morning I moved out and later that afternoon was Brian's graduation. Afterward we had dinner with his family and I said goodbye to the town for good. Yesterday was Mother's Day and I took my mom out for lunch and to see Dark Shadows with our man Johnny - he was looking good even as a vampire.

I really liked the movie. I mean - c'mon - Johnny is fantastic, dreamy, and it was set in the 70's so the film had awesome tunes. A win - win for me. Later this afternoon I am going to help my mom set up her garden. I hope some fresh air and sunshine will kick this cold's bum. Anywho, hope you all are having a wonderful Monday!

    1. I really liked it, but yeah others have seemed not to like it. I just went for Johnny honestly. I think if you just go in originally for that you will like it, haha. I really did enjoy the entire movie though.

    1. Thank you! The cold is slowly going away. It is just such a pain when you feel like your head is in a fog. It has made blogging and job hunting a chore :-/

      Haha. My mom and I really liked it. But I am not a super movie critic so I am not sure whether you would like it or not.

  4. I was really disappointed in that movie. I actually fell asleep for a bit during it and I am a HUGE Johnny Depp & Tim Burton/Danny Elfman fan. The movie took forever & the stories weren't tied in together well. Such a shame.

    Hope you feel better though!

    1. Oh no! I am sorry you didn't enjoy it. I am pretty easy going when it comes to movies and anything with Johnny Depp could hold my attention - even if it was just him starring at a wall. I have a problem, haha. Thank you!

  6. Congrats to all the graduates! I hope you're trucking along with unpacking; that's always such a drag, but it is fun putting everything in their new places.
    Your mother's day sounds like it was a blast. I love anything Johnny Depp and Tim Burton! And 70's tunes? Sweet! I seriously think Johnny Depp is getting better with age. The man never looks bad to me. Not even in his scruffiest of scruff states.
    I hope you feel better! ♥

    1. Ugh. I can't even move in my room at the moment - it is too stuffed with junk. I had accumulated so much stuff at my last place. I really need to weed through everything.

      I completely agree! He is too dreamy, haha. My judgement of the movie may be off due to him - but I really liked it.

      Thank you! I am slowly feeling better :]

  9. What a whirl-wind couple of days! You have a lot to process - at least that is something that can be done while blobbing on the couch with a vicious cold.
